I doubt he will get v4 if he bought v3.
unless iNav corp lets it's [authorized] resellers return old versions, then they will want to sell all remaining copies of v3 that they have in stock.
My guess would be that you will NOT receive the v3, but you will most likely get v4 instead. Let us know.
sorry for the double-post, but I felt this was important...
I was PM'd yesterday by an mp3car forum member who asked:
my answer to Jimmy682 and to anyone else who wishes to steal IG4 is this:Originally Posted by jimmy682
NO, I will NOT share IG4 or give you my MSN for the purpose of stealing somebody else's work!
I don't make alot of money, i worked hard for the $100 I spent on that software. I did not buy it so that you or anyone else can get it for free. if you want a copy of IG4, then do the right thing and PAY FOR IT!! the software developers worked hard on this software. it is IMO the best car PC navigation software you can buy, so it's worth the money.
NOTE: hopefully you will choose to be honest by legally purchasing the software. but if after reading this you still choose to steal the software anyways, then you will quickly find that you cannot use it. IG4 requires internet activation to use the software. this is an inconvenience to honest users, but a necessary step to prevent people like you from stealing it.
apparently some people feel that they are better than the rest of us and that they are entitled to getting things for free that the rest of us have to work for. PLEASE, nobody else ask me to give away what I worked hard to get.
I'm pretty surprised that person had the gall not only to ask in the first place, but his message certainly made it look to me like he completely thinks this is 100% acceptable and absolutely expected you to send him the software...
On that note, there was some comedian on TV the other day. Said he was watching the TV advertisement that said "you wouldn't steal a car, why would you steal music". His response was, "I wouldn't steal a car, but if my friend called me and said I just bought a new car, do you want me to burn you a copy..." I'm absolutely against software piracy, but this was a funny bit.
New! Voice options:
- iGuidance 4 style (combination of pre-recorded voice & text-to-speech
- Classic style - as in previous iGuidance versions (human voice - no street names)
- Text-To-Speech (the whole voice prompt in text-to-speech)
Here's the file to download:
More info for new users is here:
(Exit and delete previous version before running this new version)
I'm assuming it is because I installed it on a Vista machine in my carpc. It works fine on my XP laptop. Two questions:
Is there a vista patch for v3?
Anyone running v4 on vista?
I haven't yet made the switch to Vista, but I just checked iNav website for you. iG4 - PC version: Windows ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista
I was finally able to get V3 working with Vista. I had to download the 3.1 patch and then configure the GPS to to the same port as the USB to Serial manually. Auto detect did not work. It works perfectly so far!
Software innovation is alive and well
iGuidance by iNav is based on the software which can be found in several PNDs. The newest personal navigation device by Intellinav will include "Traffic Pattern" also called "Predictive Traffic" data. I'm guessing this may indicate what we may see a year from now in a future version of iGuidance.
