    the reason it kept changing directions every few seconds could be that your gps was losing signal/connection. I drove in the city when I still had my old gps and it couldn't lock steadily because of tall buildings around. However, with the new sirf III gps, I had no issues such as incorrect guidance.

    I have a Sirf III puck, it's sitting right on my dash under the window. It can get a signal in my garage, it's definitely not the problem.

    Merzbow, give iGuidance another try. Sometimes people may get completely wrong impression about a great product when judged purely based on one or two trips.

    IGuidance has had good reviews from many users on different websites.

    I'd give it more time if the interface wasn't so absolutely atrociously user-unfriendly and ugly. Companies complain about Microsoft moving into their markets, but put no effort into making their software easy-to-use, reliable, and affordable. Time to go home and check out my copy of S&T 2006.

    WTF are you using? I can't do anything in MSS&T 04-05 with my car PC!

    The interface for MSS&T is designed for tablet/mouse/keyboard and not at all touch/remote friendly. On the other hand I can do almost anything in i-guidance with a couple of EASY presses of buttons on my remote.

    Plus the voice feedback and 3d views in i-guidance give me nerd-wood.
