    earthmate/street atlas 9

    I found that street atlas 9 initializes much faster than street atlas deluxe for some reason

    I've been a couple places where my location was off by a couple miles.. I'm not sure if that was from the batteries though.. I'll be visiting my friend this weekend and using my gps. I'll let you know if my results differ now that my setup is changed

    What software you guys in Europe are using?

    Is there any emulator software that let you run the map CDs of the commercial in vehicle navigation systems on a PC?

    Trackmate (modified to be NMEA compliant) and MS Streets & Trips (only software with good Canadian coverage). It does a good job of giving accurate directions, but it is missing some features that would be nice in the car like spoken directions or proper screen resizing for a small LCD.

    Its like it was written for small car screens instead of laptops. Perfect size fonts, onscreen keyboard, and menus on my 6.5" widescreen. And spoken routing. People wont believe that its not an aftermarket gps system in my car costing 1000's rather than an old cyrix based PC.

    Rand Mcnally GPS reciever/ Copilot 2002 and Street finder Deluxe/ Yes. I mostly use CoPilot, for the turn by turn directions + voice commands, but I find that Street Finder is more accurate.

    I use Street Atlas 8 to plan trips and stuff on my laptop or home computer. When I want to "look at a map." But it needs more space to be practically, hence not on the car computer's 6" LCD. Might be useful for those with a 14" though.
