    What's the best GPS software? W/ Touchscreen?

    Just wondering on what most people are using. For easy using in car with touchscreen? Compusa has the 2005 Microsoft GPS for $79.00 price matched at Bestbuy for all those that are looking. But not sure how good it is or if there are others that are better.
    thanks

    Ask ten different people and you'll get ten different answers.
    Find the package that does what you need/want.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    What DarquePervert said is absolutely correct. Though, I must say, Mappoint definitely is not touchscreen friendly unless you have a keyboard handy.

    I personally use Routis and works great with just a touchscreen interface. Other software, but I personally don't use for various reasons, are Destinator or CoPilot.

    As far as touchscreen friendly, I doubt there are too many differing answers, I think most will agree Routis/iGuidance are the most touchscreen friendly. About the only thing you can't easily do is use the right click functionalities, but you really don't need them (i dont like having the touchscreen driver rightclick box getting in the way of my screen, but that would be one solution).

    I'm a big fan of Routis 2004, but the buttons are a little small for a 7" screen. If Co-Pilot can improve their map accuracy and the ablity to have true 3-D moving maps, I would sway and select Co-Pilot over Routis/IGuidance. They have the best user friendly touch screen interface I've seen.

    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    I have routis, and i like it very much for maps and touchscreen etc...
    My only problem with routis is the POI database sucks. ...IMHO

    My liilput allows right button emulation by holding your stylus against the screen for more than a couple of seconds.... Settings are within Touchkit.

    CoPilot is very touch screen friendly, nice big buttons, on screen keyboard, etc. That's what makes it my favorite.

    Copilot all the way for touch screen usability. Routis sucks in my opinion, but I have a composite 7" screen, so maybe thats it.
