Attention Newbies! Everything (almost) you want to know about GPS (Part 1)
And to quote from it:
What is the BEST GPS software?
Short answer: There is no *best* GPS software but some are more popular than others. Some are better for European use while others are better for U.S. use. Popular software for the PC are:
4. Delorme Street Atlas USA
6. Microsoft Streets and Trips
7. Microsoft MapPoint
which is in no particular order. iGuidance is very popular so I tried it out. 2 days ago actually. Right now I have uninstalled it and at this very moment reinstalling Streets and Trips '06.
I think the maps in iGuidance suck. They are hiddious. The arrow is waaaaaay to small but there are fixes. Easy with RegHack. I like Streets and Trips. I have the 2006 version, but there is a 2007 version. In my opinion they added nothing new but some updated roads. I have not driven by any roads which are not on the 2006 version, so I see no point to it. Also 2006 has a good RoadRunner skin for it, as well as an Autoit script to get rid of that stupid "Driving and typing is a no no" message. 2007 is new and supported little at this time. Get a bargain and get 2006. The receiver that comes with it works awesome for me. Lock within seconds, and never loses a signal. It is a Pharos i360 unit that glows a pretty blue! Instead of the Pharos logo though it says "microsoft". I got mine in March when it was the newest at Office Max or Office depot for somewhere around $60 (I can't remember anymore) after instant rebates with the GPS receiver. Can't beat that.
