Sierra Delta Kilo?
Sierra Delta Kilo?
I know what it means, i'm curious as to whether they will be offering one with this version
i wonder how many people would consider investing their hard earn 100 bucks for iguidance 2009 when there are so many other choices out there. wait! this is only in beta 1 stage? iguidance 2009 is so exciting that they have to announce that it is in beta1 stage? i should start saving up for the new color buttons? wow! traffic pattern with navteq map database is nice, but should be available with all other gps software that use navteq map. the annoucement does not say anything about tts. i wonder it will retain that from iguidance4. tts is perhaps the only advantage iguidance has over the others.
personal experience: i have used the nextar PNA device with iguiance and iguidance must have one of the worst routing engine. iguidance really messed me up bad one time driving from west virginia to toronto canada, an 8.5 hour trip that took 10.5 hours. the 2 additional hours wasnt bad but the route it took us on has so many curves that made everyone more tire. driving back with a tomtom go device was much more present and 2 hours shorter. after studying iguidance a bit more and see more folks who have similar issues with iguidance routing on this forum, i ebayed the nextar and vowed never to touch iguidance again. trust me. you may be fine driving around town or to the next town with iguiance. if you drive cross states with many small highways and free ways patrallel, i recommend other gps or use google map instead.
on the business side, i thought inav was dying. their website hasnt been updated in a long time. iguidance 4.0 has not one update since it was release one year ago. seeing how many PNA like tomtom and garmin flu off the shelves from my local frys electronic, inav seem to have missed the boat. garmin, tomtom and now nokia are moving into the smart phone navigation market like the iphones and (the htc phones that are running wm6. i have one and its awesome). i hope inav can do better here.
don't know why they can't make all gps sw looking like that... korea japan.. they do, I've seen them in live.. looks awsome and very user friendly.. Those are common in Asia not western i guess..
I dont know what happend on your trip, but I bet you didnt set the route preferences correctly.
And we just drove from Colorado, USA, to Mt. Rushmore SD,USA , to Huntsville, ON, CAN then from there to Toronto, ON, CAN to Niagra, ON, CAN and then back to Colorado.
Perfect routing. Only downside was the 3D view with the exits and the lanes which is coming in this next release, and the lexus had, so we used both software and it was invaluable on the QEW since it had been a while since we drove those.
For long hauls such as more than 100km in the US switching the routing to "Major" is useful since the interstates are 70 to 75 mph but in Canada where the limit is usually 100kph max and usually closer to 80, major makes no difference and "Quickest" is king.
But we got there in the same amount of time as it took us 10 years ago with our only US guide book and a highlighter going over the interstates.
Why go with iguidance when you can go with Garmin Mobile pc and get traffic updates speed cam alerts and navteq maps, aswell as it being a Garmin. iguidance use to be the choice because it was the only usable choice for the pc, but 100 bucks when Garmin is selling theres for 60 bucks is a joke they better come down on the price. I have used Iguidance, Streets and Trips, Mappoint, Destinator, and finally Garmin Mobile pc which is buy far the best that I have used so far. So this news from Iguidance is of no importance. Every other gps software is catching up and passing Iguidance
Like you said everyone has there own opinion and thats what I like about the forums, Me myself I like the garmins 3d view, I think i get real p***ed of when a company doesn't really care about there customer base Garmin has already realesed a update to resolve some of the bugs in the software osk your right they should have one But you can work around that I live in Montgomery county Md my county just started using speed cams a couple of months a go and the fact that Iguidance didn't put it in v4.0 was a real dissapointment, and I wont even get into the upgrade fight I hade with them aswell as the activation fight, it was like having a second job to deal with there software Garmin Mobile Pc is my choice. And in my opinion I feel that it cant touch Garmin.
I had iGuidance and had activation difficulties. iNav had no interest in helping me. Rather than assist me in working through the problems, they preferred to dump me as a customer. At least they refunded my purchase since I bought through their online store. I promptly ordered the Garmin Mobile PC and was very pleased with the easy installation and great software. If iGuidance still has the activation system from hell, there's no way I'd even consider it. Just my $.02
