    Street Atlas Delorme

    I have Street Atlas The thing that stinks about it is you can only add 200 addresses to your address book. I drive a truck and need more. I know I can buy street atlas plus but have already spent 89 bucks on the first one.

    I plan my route inside with streets and trips on my laptop, then carry it to the car and put it in it's custom holder (like the police use, I can't think of the word! lol) and plus in the usb 353 and it works great for getting me where ever I need to go. I plan the route and when I get in the car I don't even need to touch it ....but I realize this doesn't work in everyones situation

    S&t 2006

    Hey, I just picked up S&T 2006, it now does turn-by-turn voice directions, and, you can put it into 'Night Mode' where it's green-on-black... (I attached a pic of it to better illustrate this)

    I've yet to try 'Direction Guidance' (OSD / Voice directions).... Since I just got/installed it.... haven't even had it in the car yet

    I have Streets and Trips 2006 and I must say it is great. turn by turn directions, 4 different map views (including night view) and the POI directory and search feature is by far the best!

    Question S&t 06

    I have a Xenarc 7" LCD and I run the video card at 640x480. I run it with a form factor PC mounted in the trunk with the LCD mounted in the dash. It works very well. For software I currently use iGuidance, but I have several issues with it.

    Would anyone think that S&T 2006 is a suitable replacement for iGuidance? can it be highly customized to be run entirely from a low resolution touchscreen? The GUI would need total replacement to accomodate big buttons.

    I'm using viamichelin(searching for a better app) here are some pros and cons:

    Pros - Very userfriendly, 3d view

    Cons - Hard to get updates, before u can use the touch-screen friendly u needa fil in ur detination etc without a touch-screen friendly gui, it brings you to your destination by strange roads OMG really strange..

    More detail: Some USB GPS receivers simply route the GPS information over to your PC's com port so the GPS APPEARS to be a serial GPS. They do this by installing a small driver known as a USB-serial port bridge. You can then set the com port by right clicking My Computer-->Properties-->Device Manager. Look under the serial port entry and you'll find the serial port bridge (if it installed correctly). Click on driver and then advanced and you can set the com port to the port you would like. You then set that corresponding serial port in your navigation software and the the receiver should work.
    hey, do you know or have the actual name and link to the USB-serial port bridge???

    i am currently experiencing this problem.

    thanks...

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
