    I agree with Red about iGuidance's ****ty way of finding street names and such. One time I was looking for a street in Maryland (forgot the name). IG couldn't find it. I had to map it on Yahoo Maps and routed by Lat and Lon. Once I got there, IG was able to display the street name I was looking for just fine. It has the street in its database but couldn't find it. How ****ed up is that?

    Anyway, I still prefer IG over S&T because of its more touchscreen friendly interface. And with iGMon, it's a clear winner for me.

    ahh I just relaized this is in the GPS section and not in the RR section. It's an RR skin, well actually there are 2 of them

    One is made by Mattkins99 and the other by Softec
    Brushed Metal Streets and Trips 2006 skin

    I made the Softec skin in to BAV as well, the link is in that thread. What frontend do you use?

    I just installed Roadnav and it's a simple neat nav program.
    Having trouble dowloading the maps, but I'm sure the creator can help me out with that.

    Nothing fancy; windows and linux:

    Thanks for the link. After checking it out I really think this program has potential. I made a new thread about roadnav in hopes of generating more interest.

    For instance, for the Plano area in Dallas/Fort Worth, they list Plano 2 or 3 times.

    That's a non-issue now. The problem was promptly corrected with a download patch after users complained. Download newer version from inavcorp.com

    wtf?

    so it took users complaining?

    where are their QA services? the software never should have made it out to the public like that....lol

    but thanks for the info, I'll see if it helps at all.
