I've tried S&T 2006 and iGuidance. I thought S&T was bad until I tried iGuidance. At least S&T had my neiborhood listed and had a fairly detailed map. iGuidance thought I was off road when I was in my driveway because my neiborhood (which is over 7 years old) isn't on the map. Not only that, but the look of the map is VERY empty and kind of old looking. S&T isn't perfect either. There is no 3D view and it seems too cluttered with so many buttons.
I'm trying to find a good navigation program that comes up with good routes, works with touchscreens and is more colorful. I'm not one for sacrificing looks for functionality, but I'd like the map images to look better.
Is there any PC GPS software that looks like the TomTom screen in this link?: http://www.tomtom.com/products/produ...210&Language=4
Just looking at there website and their navi software looks awesome. If you look at the compatability section you'll sit that is its PC/laptop compatible. Someone should buy this software and try it out and see how it compares to iGuidance.Originally Posted by LiquidKernel
edit: I wonder if they have a SDK for the software?

Check Out My Install!!!
it does look good. I would use it if they made it for the PC. I think in the requirements it says PC because you need to install it through ActiveSync or a memory card but need a PC to extract the appropriate files.
Someone should try to port this, I think I would use it. I find myself not liking S&T either...

Definitely looks like a nice looking piece of software. I believe that this is made by the same company that made Routis/iGuidance... so if they haven't ported OnCourse's layout into the PC version, I doubt they will =[Originally Posted by Quattro
I only wish that CoPilot was capable of being embedded into front ends... it's one of the (if not the only) nicest looking PC navi software. I'd be willing to spend $200 for it (or $100 if you pick it up on eBay).
For those who are interested in oncourse...
Its called navigon 5 in europe, german company I believe.
I have it on my PPC and it is good. Some say its better than tomtom, hmm, yes in some way. The voice command is kinda cool though
Only the older version is PC compatible, version 5 only runs on PPC.
I got it running on windows by running the PPC emulator. For more details find sama's instruction on how to run tomtom for windows.
You need the PC/laptop just to manage the maps and install the apps.Originally Posted by Quattro
The upgrade on their website is a full apps believe it or not, just need to find the maps and the code.
They come on 2 DVDs for europe/north america
Here it is >>>
Tomtom run just fine on my PC. This navigon run really slow, and that is already running on Dual XEONs @ 3GHz each
Never mind the tomtom title bar, I was just using the same setup as "sama".
