    Ive never had any problems with its directions... As for integrate-able what are you looking for? Sticking a front end on it?

    Speaking of front ends and mapping software

    And there is a contest to make a cool app with the APIs @

    Perhaps do something with it combined with WiFi and GPS...

    Sample Sound


    Yes, S&T talks, but the sound is ugly (in comparison to iGuidance)

    Yes, I agree. (What were they thinking ) The lack of 3D is likely the most important factor for which I will still not use it for navigation, even though it has improved quite a lot over the last two versions.

    Oh man thanks for the voice sample.. I almost wasted the time to pirate a copy of this..

    I own the 2005 version.. Even with the mail-in rebate it's a waste of money compared to i-guidance..

    Oh yeah the voice in i-guidance is the same voice as this smoking hot lady that owns a liquor store/pub that I do work for. She's just as sweet as her voice is. If I ever wanted to add more voice to my PC I'd go bug her for some samples!

    Ordered from Amazon, will get it on Tuesday. Frankly iGuidance is garbage, I used it for the first time to go somewhere in San Francisco, the damn thing would change its route every ten seconds and took me miles out of my way. The TomTom Navigator 5 software I have for my PDA was a million times better, but unfortunately TomTom doesn't make a PC version.

    See and that's what I found was GOOD about i-guidance, it wasn't guilty of blasting me with way too many instructions. It tends to keep things alot more simple than MS Streets 04/05 when it comes to instructions and turns. Sure it could have even 'less' turns but everything is a work in progress?
