go bluetooth for the connection if you can....
I have an idea and I'm new to the hobby and forum. There has to be a way to have GPRS wireless internet update GPS course in realtime. I always get stuck in traffic and manualy have to replot course in traffic. (I have GPRS on my cell phone and im trying to find a USB powered modem instead of the phones IR. There might be a PCMCIA-USB type II card readers, have not found one yet. I dont have a PCI slot for a PCMCIA adapter.) The only way I can think of making this happen is to find a GPS program that would connect to internet and include rush-hour traffic in the fastest or shortest course.
Thanks for the idea but I will have to change phones. The s105 is the coolest phone I have ever owned and don't want to change it. I can buy a cheep phone w/ bluetooth and turn it into a car phone also and have GPRS. The problem is that I want a allways on connection. When the computer boots the internet will be up also!

Many thanks. I'd really like to get this working.Originally Posted by Rami
I guess I will need Mappoint. I knew there was another gps program out there that would work. I will give it a try!
I used Routis over the weekend... and I was driving on I405 in southern california, (notorios for traffic)(nicknamed will be there 4 'o 5 hours) and as a local I knew the alternate roads and their traffic, and all I had to tell routis is to avoid the 405, and it replotted quite efficiently... more or less how I'd drive... I just knew which lights were quicker and less congested... not something I'd expect from routis...
Am I missing something, can't see in in MapPoint 2004...
