    Anyway to use Destinator Pocket PC Version on my Win XP Carputer?

    I have a copy of destinator that I have used wy my Ipaq, but now that I have my computer in my car I was wondering if there is anyway to use this with my WinXP machine. It looks like it's a toss up as far as Destinator and Copilot if I have to purchase a version. Just wondering if there's any chance to get this to work.

    this has been discussed a thousand times before. it is possible to get it working by using the SDK with the pocket pc maps, but whether this is legal from a licensing perspective is unknown.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    Thanks for a kick in the right direction. I've got it figured out now.

    say your destinator directory is C:\PowerLOC\Destinator.

    You have to individually unzip each map file. If the map file is say A you unzip whatever is in A.zip to C:\PowerLOC\Destinator\A

    Gotta do that for every zip

    They are like 13MB files. I just tried. Didn't work. Even after removing headers off of the added ones.
