    There's a LOT of variables that only YOU could answer, and that will determine which GPS software you'd use.. things like "Do you use touchscreen or not?" I Have MS S&T and it's not very touch screen friendly, but the POI is very good. It doesn't have the high contrast feature that DeLorme has.. etc etc.. you should do your own research for pros and cons. Too much to discuss

    have fun

    I'm seriously tired of all the "best" questions from the damn ******* lazy noobs. Best GPS software? Best frontend? Best GPS receiver?

    Having said that, the 2 best GPS softwares are probably Destinator and iGuidance.

    I'm curious to find out how UK users will compare Destinator and iGuidance. Does anyone in Europe already owns iGuidance Europe?

    id like to find someone that has iguidance europe, ive heard very little feedback about it.

    Destinator is okay, but the whole SDK and DLL thing is a nightmare... and a bit of a con really. Destinator is a little bit loopy sometimes, giving you some crazy directions etc.. took me a while to get it to understand roundabouts etc. And the maps still dont seem to be great, i know where i live it tries to send me down pedestrianised areas, even tho they have been padestrianised for a good 6 years or so...

    Your only choices i feel really are destinator or iguidance tho...

    check out the Map monkey forum on more information on what you need to get destinator working well.

    Unhappy Thanks Guys

    I may be a Noob, but as Sin said, it takes a long time to find what you are lokoing for and I did search but got conflicting answers and was none the wiser after a good hours worth of trawling.

    I've looked at iGuidance Europe and it looks just like the good old iGuidance North America. Actually I noticed a difference in the way the search is performed. IGuidance NA searches in the "Starts with" manner, but the European version is a bit smarter and it searches in the "Contains" manner as depicted on the above picture.

    But I haven't tried it yet in the real life situation as I'm in Canada ;-)

    Thank you!! Destinator it is and after deciding on using Media Engine as my front end all I need to do now is get it all set up and installed.

    And the whole reason that you have to trawl through ****loads of threads is because you don't search beforehand. By posting inane questions like this, you're making the number of posts to slog through even greater.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    But thats the thing! I posted the new thread because after searching for hours I still didnt find the suitable solution or a suitable conclusion. But thanks to kind friendly folk like Sin ddn and b8bboi I have a good grip on the whole thing. I hope that others searching for the answer will now find easy and straight forward answers from posts like this with clear and precise information provided by helpful users. Once again, thanks to the guys who gave helpful answers!
