    If your wireless network has a good enough signal you don't even need to do that. You can forget about installing D-Tool. Just share out your CD-ROM on any computer in your network, and from your Car PC, just map that network drive. It doesn't have to think it is a CD, it just needs to be at the ROOT directory of whatever mounted drive you use. No special software needed.

    My problem was my wireless network was dropping its connection while transferring files.

    That's a great suggestion - the link gave me a "server error" page.

    Can iGuidance be embedded into MediaCar and/or Media Engine or any of the popular apps we all have? I use Mappoint 2004 simply because it works well in MediaCar

    I run it in Media Enging using Frodo's LMF.exe and a little app MoFo wrote for killing a nag screen. Both are in posts here on the forum.

    Also I will second the praise that started this thread. I have not used Destinator so i can't say that this is better but I can say that it works awesome and I am beyond satisfied. I would ramble about all the greatness, but it would just be repetitive at this point. This software exceeded my expectations by far.

    I am using th iTrek serial GPS and as with the software I am totally happy. Works great, no hassel getting it going and with the exception of the Harbor Tunnel in Baltimore I've never been on the road without a lock.

    there are some screen shots from the pocket pc version here

    http://www.inavcorp.com/products/iguidance2_qtour.html

    It is very similar to the PC version, virtually identical as far as the user interface goes. I'll post a few screen shots from a PC in a min.

    this image shows how the software looks as you're driving down the street not near your next turn. Upper left corner is distance to next turn and what it is. Upper center is the street name of the next turn. Upper right has a north arrow. The software will run north up instead of heading up if you like. Bottom left is access to the very touch friendly menus. Bottom center has your current location and Bottom right has distance to your destination

    This screen shot is similar to the last except that I pulled up the route list and GPS status windows as well

    As you get close to a turn the screen changes to this image. The big green arrow is the next turn and the little green arrow in a circle is you. The Yellow bar on the side gives and easy graphical count down to the turn. In this case the software said "in 1000 feet bear right and then immediatly turn left" when you come right to the turn it will sound a chime just in cast there are a couple of choices. After the turn it will anounce your next turn and the distance to it as well as switch back to the other screen. This screen is great but in truth I rarely look at it. I just listen to the voice cues. They are so easy to understand i rarely find it necessary to take my eyes off the road
