    You may consider adding another row for SDK. This is a prime motivation for some of us using Destinator because it allows the front-end to not only send commands to the nav software but also incorporate nav data into the front-end. (The one sorely missed option of IGuidance).

    You may also want to add a row for map date or make it a parenthetic for the maps checkbox.

    The two comments above highlight another problem with Destinator development, i.e., D3 SDK is outstanding, however, D5&6 SDKs are currently unuseable and this info would have to be footnoted on the SDK row.
    Done, I don't know the map data dates...I think we could incorporate the dates into the same row as the maps line, or next to the check boxes for regions.

    Delorme autostarts and has trip logging, but no SDK/API.

    Nicely done! You could remove Routis to gain some space. Routis exists no longer. It stopped at version 1.1 some two years ago. At that time it was a re-branded version of iGuidance 1.1. iGuidance lives, Routis is dead.

    I took the liberty of altering one of the categories with a footnote. There is a StreetDeck European version.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I can help you out on Copilot 9(released dec 2005).
    I don't know about Frontend Embeddable, SDK/API or maps other then the USA, but it does everything else in your chart.
    Another feature I would like to see in the chart is ROUTE OPTIMIZATION where it will arrange multiple stops in order for the shortest trip.

    I don't know anything about it, what does it have and not have from that chart?

    I added copilot and route optimization along with multiple stops, if anyone else can chime in on maps/features it would be great

    Both: Streets & Trips and also MapPoint

    - No Asian version of the products

    - Auto Rotating: YES (both)

    - Voice guided directions: YES (both)

    - Auto zooming: Yes (both)

    - SDK: NO S&T, YES MapPoint

    - Trip Planning: Yes, Yes

    - Route Optimization: Yes, Yes

    - Multiple Stops: Yes, Yes


    P.S. No automatic re-routing, and no auto-start GPS, but both features could be added with an AutoIt script. Not a perfect solution, but its doable if someone wants it.

    speaking of tomtom, it is possible to get it working, I've just taken it for another spin around today

    I'm not sure if you want to include it since it runs within a pocketpc emulator. link is in my sig if you're interested. I guess it can't do much harm if you do and also state that it suffers quite a performance hit for lower end cpu's.
