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.
windows looking. This way you don't have to navigate the tiny little buttons and checkboxes and small font with your nig fingers on a 7" screen! They provide big buttons and a good font. RoadRunner is what I use and it interfaces with winamp in the background to play music. Tons of free skins and everything.
