    Unhappy Help with Destinator3 and SDK UK maps

    I have recently aquired a copy of Destinator 3 and the SDK package, however................. Is it just me or is this software extremely hard to instlal and configure??

    I really cant figure it out. Is there anyone who knows of any step by step installation instructions. or anyone who fancies helping out?

    I have had a good hunt through the different posts, and am still in the process of getting hold of a copy of mapmonkey. I am in the uk and am also still trying to find a copy of the UK maps for either software. My system is all up and running but geeeeeeeez this sat nav thing is proving to be the hardest thing to figure out yet!!


    Hope someone can help.

    Let's see....

    First you go here:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/map-monkey/

    There you'll find a post with the topic "RELEASE:....."
    RELEASE: Map Monkey v1.1.3

    In there you'll find a link to the MapMonkey website:
    http://www.mapmonkey.net/

    If you then click "Enter Site" you'll find a link entitled "DOWNLOAD":
    http://www.shaunjones.uklinux.net/de...download.shtml

    On that page you'll then find the links to download the latest version + the update-patch:
    Full program >> http://domain880736.sites.fasthosts..../MapMonkey.exe
    Upgrade >> http://domain880736.sites.fasthosts....nkey_11348.exe

    Download those files, and install them (just double click the .exe files).

    There, that's MapMonky.

    Then find your favorite store and buy the maps you need, unzip the mapdata you want into a folder with the same name as the map covers (UK for example) and then put this folder into the "C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator" directory.

    There, that's the maps installed.


    Now, if it wouldn't have been for Destinators narrow minded thinking here, that could be it. But now you'll have to order a "custom" DLL from them that at best will timebomb in the near future.
    Just search for "DLL" and "destinator" and you'll find lots.

    There is a special DLL floating around that you might be able to find, other than that, the only help I can give you is to recommend Freedrive which is just as good (or in my oppinion: even better) as MM.

    You'll find everything you'll need to know about Freedrive here:

    Who said that was the case !?

    It's the DLL supplied by Destinator that timebombs.
    personally I think that sucks, even though you buy the maps and the SDK,
    trying to do the right thingm you're the one getting screwed in the end.
