    Can you elaborate? Do you even have a receiver? Is it configured properly? Does the GPS software recognize it? Do you get signal outside of the car? Inside the car? Please explain, I really don't have a clue as to where to begin in helping you out.

    Sorry, i have the reciever(Haicom 202), i have the pc fitted in the car. Now i need to know which software will best pair up with the centrafuse front end and how to install it. Stupidly i bought Autoroute but i really wanna try and get software that will be embedded into centrafuse. Plus i was told that autoroute is useless

    yea, u can forget about autoroute, its great for trip planning, but not navigation.

    veetid from centrafuse is working on a Destinator integration. hear the routing is ok out of the US. maybe those who live in the uk can give u better advice for software. Not really familiar with european navigation releases.

    Thanks for the advice. Will keep an eye out for the destinator software as it sounds the best if its integrated with centrafuse
