    I can *half* agree with this. but when you are a small company, and its easy to get around the "trial" security either by sharing reg codes, .exe hex hacks, or registry hacks, you will loose some $$ and profit. it is just way easier for them to release only by sale. the larger companies can afford to do trials, realizing not everyone will legally use their software.

    you can really consider some of the screenshots of actual users using it to be your trial

    i paid for mine since it *almost* looks like what you get when you rent a car with GPS from Hertz. Routis, Destinator, and MapPoint are not to that point yet. the other selling point for me is that I can install it both on my PDA *AND* laptop *AND* look like almost the same app on two different platforms. you can only do that with routis, none of the others unless you wish to cough up more $$

    if need be, I *could* set it up in my car, and record it giving me directions into a small DivX and put it up on your guy's hub. :-P I won't have my softwrae till later next week though since i ordered it last night.

    Regarding free trials, I think one concern many have, including myself, is the accuracy/completeness of roads in MY area.

    Which obviously can only really be done on a person to person basis.

    you guys suck, I was all about nabbing the software, and I still beleive $100 is WAY too much for the software. especailly after $100 for streetatlas and the delorm unit.

    but now im convinced that I really need to buy it, that supporting the company is more important than going out to a couple nice restorants for a month.

    man, $100 is so much for software I use as seldom as I would.....

    damn you, morality and ethics!

    any brick and mortar stores that sell it? or am I stuck buying online?

    I dont get this at all? You are happy to $100 or whatever for your CPU, another few hundred on drives and memory etc, but when it comes to software some people think it should just be free? The people that write the software have to eat too you know (like me!)

    Buy it at semsons.com for less than $90+ S/H. The software is $99 and you get a 10% discount for being a member of gpspassion.com.

    I understand the need for purchasing software as much as anyone since I'm currently a senior CS student, but in the same breath I want to try something before I fork out the cash for it. With hardware you know what your getting before you buy it. How many of us are confused about how our stick of memory is going to function? Software is a different creature and should be treated as such...my .02

    Yeah, that avatar makes me feel funny...

    Just ordered v2... I've been using Routis, but since they're taking their sweet time with v2, I went with iGuidance. Can't wait to try it out!
