    Running

    Hi there,


    So I now have PC Navigator 7 Europe...
    I ordered previous Monday, received it on Thursday.

    It works under Wine, although I still have an issue with sound, but I hope I can solve it soon.

    I have a Navilock TMC capable GPS receiver and it is fully supported.
    I had TMC running in my test setup, but yesterday evening I installed the carPC in my car and can't get it to work anymore. :-(
    It must be something stupid I'm missing.

    Anyway, I did a quick testdrive and it works as advertised. ;-)

    Maps from 2007, navigation accross Europe, fast route calculation, recalculate as you go, etc...


    I'm not really into skinning and so on, so I can't comment on that.
    I use it full screen, but you can minimize it from the menu.


    Cheers,

    Johan.

    For PC Navigator 6 and 7 there is currently only a Windows version available, no Linux version.
    They say they will release one, but it always takes very long.
    You have to realize Linux versions, or even PC versions, are not a priority for them.

    The Linux version of PC Navigator 6 was going to be released in June 2006, but their schedules always slip... As to date, nothing released yet...

    As Version 7 was released now and I need a functional navigationsystem in less than 2 weeks, I decided to go with the Windows version and run it under Wine...

    It's not what I wanted, but you can't always get what you want...

    By the time a Linux version is available (if ever), there will be new maps, etc...
    And in the mean time, I have navigation capability in Linux... (Which is my main reason for a carpc.)


    Cheers,

    Johan.

    There is still the possibility to download maps updates from the support even if a late release is made
