    Is there an eval version of Routis 2004 or Destinator 3 for USA?

    I started putting together a carputer several months ago to play my MP3's and recently got it up and running thanks to the discovery of this site.
    I made the mistake of upgrading my old Street Atlas from years ago to v. 2004 as it does not serve my needs at all.
    Many appear to be happy with Routis and Destinator on this board and I am wondering if there is an eval. version running around anywhere that I can see if I like it before I spend another $100. I already tried the P2P without any luck. Feel free to PM me if you have any ideas.

    Thanks!

    ditto - I was contemlating moving from MapPoint / Destinator but don't want to keep laying out cash if I'm not going to be satisfied.

    If not a trail version, then maybe a non-functional demo version? I would be interested in getting a feel for it, or maybe some extensive screenshots!

    Questions about that screen shots.
    How is the current location indicated on the 3D maps?
    Also, can you adjust that area to be displayed? (zoom in and out)

    Thanks

    Ok Ok Im going to ask it...
    Hopefully I wont be kicked from the board becuase I do love it here.

    But who can hook me up with this software?
    Ive looked for iton the net for download just like every one else, but came up short... Its not that I dont think its stealing but screen shots arent enough for me to pry open my already too thin college wallet. I made the mistake of buying Streets and trips 2004 without demo.... Not a big fan. But back on topic. Please let me know (email only please [email protected]) if you can get / upload / send me a copy... Ill make it worth your time.


    Sorry it had to come to this.

    Ryuand...
    How is the current location indicated on the 3D maps?
    Same as in 2-D. There is a small circle with an arrow inside that indicates your position. The arrow is green when the system is locked (on the satellites), and red if not-locked. You can select either "North-up" (map oriented with North at top), or "current-direction up" (your direction of travel dictates map orientation). 3-D is very cool looking, but I find myself using 2-D because, in 2-D you can select a destination by locating it on a map and tap-and-hold to select. This is disabled in 3-D.

    Also, can you adjust that area to be displayed? (zoom in and out)
    Yes, you have full zoom capability in 3-D.

    This is a great program. It is well designed, and works very well while driving. I'm a big fan.

    It would also be nice if I could see if my Earthmate works with Routis before I buy it. Some say it does, most say it doesn't. It looks like it should but a trial version would tell me that for sure. If I buy and it doesn't work then I would have to buy a new gps, and on and on......

    MikeH: Thanks for the reply! Those pics help a lot. It certainly does look a lot better suited to a 7" touch screen that Street Atlas.

    Yeah, that helps a lot.
    I like the look of Destinator too, but I don't think street names are not displayed on 3D view so I like Routis better

    Now, if I can get my hands on some kind of demo version...
