never ever dabbles in this before, had a look around on here but a lot of u guys are USA based
im after a UK version of somesort of GPS software, UK only, nothing else needed
what price are we talking? just to point me in the right direction! also will they all work with any mouse? and do they run off CD or install EVERYTHING to your HDD? also upgrades are a concern
ive just bought autoroute for my dad and noticed it does real time gps
played with it in car for an hour or so, any interesting features?? can i use it to come up with instructions etc whilst driving? voice would be cool
I'm not a fan of AutoRoute myself, however it's bigger brother MapPoint has a programmable interface (search the threads for VOICES - it's a program written over MapPoint which is voice-controlled) and is very good. If you are actually going to use the software in the car, AutoRoute won't cut it.Originally Posted by m2rv h
What do you reckon the maximum you would spend on navigation software is?
There's always destinator. Can be expensive though. Do a
eeeeerm to be honest im very good with directions and such and its just for show lmao!! about 100 quid tops say?
The best value for money solution in the UK is Infomap Navigator. S/W only is £35. You get voice directions, map rotates in direction of travel, auto recalc if you go off-route, full 7 digit postcode searches.
Have a look on Action Replay for more info.
Yeah but it isn't very good for use in a Car PC (at least most people in these forums seem to think that). You need the £99 version and time on your hands to write your own front-endOriginally Posted by Falken
If it's just for show have a look at GPSS.co.uk - that doesn't give directions but shows where you are on the Map. It is free and doesn't come with Maps - but there is a map exporter program for pulling maps from Autoroute. If you're just showing it off in a specific area it's not too much hassle to use Paint Shop Pro/Photoshop to combine the Autoroute map and an aerial photo from MultiMap.co.uk for an aerial map. I've done it and it does look smart, through useless for directions.Originally Posted by m2rv h
I totally agree with you Stevieg, it isn't the best BUT it is tremendous value for money and usable. The new version due out very soon will address most of the criticisms. Just about the only thing left off the wish list is a 3d display.Originally Posted by stevieg
