    Unhappy GPS Media Car Help

    Guys,

    Please dont flame me cuz I know this is a lame question, I have decided to use media car as my front end. How the hell do I install Destinator as from what I can tell it is PPC do I need the SDK? If so I have read somewhere that media car does not work with Destinator 3, any ideas.

    I have never used Destinator or Mappoint. I am used to using Tom TOm which I understand doesnt work. Is Mappoint any good? and what is Map Monkey?

    I will be quite happy to if someone can point me to a post/page on how to get it running.

    Thanks guys

    I do not know about map point but you should use Road Runner instead of Media Car. RoadRunner is based on MediaCar skins and has updates atleast every other day or so. Guino is doing a fantastic support job with his project. RoadRunner support Destinator3. To find RoadRunner, look at the frontend section. It has it's own forum.

    Yeah I had a look at Roadrunner. It looks very good but it seemed to crash a lot and the application suport isnt in yet.

    I will definatly be switching to Roadrunner in the not too distant future but Media car does what I need for now.

    I have got the SDK and now I just need some instructions on how to install it and get it working with map monkey.

    Does it allways show "not for resale" or have I just not go it working correctly?
