Does route 66 do turn by turn instructions?Originally Posted by spdfrek
Thas all the info I have for now.I plan to purchase the software and test it with a friends gps reciever before i go buy my own to see how it works out.
I bought Route 66 two weeks ago ($40 at CompUSA) for use on a trip to Santa Barbara, CA (I live near Phoenix, AZ). I didn't have a GPS receiver (ordered a Rikaline 6010 earlier this week), so I was relying completely on turn-by-turn directions. It does a good, not great job. The interface is a bit kludgy and the software is pretty slow (on my Powerbook G4/400, anyway). The directions, however, are very solid, once you get used to the lingo - they call a freeway exit ramp a "slip road", for example. All in all, I'm very happy with it for the measly $40 investment. We'll see how it behaves with GPS - my Rikaline should be here today...

let us know how it runs with the gps plugged in
You can still get directions for each turn regardless of weather you have a GPS. The only thing a GPS does is let you get the direction for the turn you should make next.Originally Posted by DocNupe
gps would also auto updtae for turns made and things where as without the gps i imagine you have to skip to the next turn manualy i suppose
