    I found RoadNav to be very very slow (unusable) on an older system I had, but that system ran Roadmap just fine. I haven't looked into why; I know Roadmap I could compile using the exact libraries I wanted, and I'm not sure what RoadNav uses.

    he knows that, it's just that many consider IG to be the nav choice for windows and he was saying will this be the nav choice for linux.

    Downloaded Roadnav and kept getting error messages when it attempted to download map files. The URL is correct anybody play with it? I like the look of the program, very clean and simple, some of us don't need all sorts of crazy POI databases and what not.

    Looks interesting, I'm thinking of gentoo on a mac mini (duo) with mythbox (with my own custom skin) and roadster as a carpc.

    Has anyone done any further testing with iGuidance and wine? It would be great to have this working with the upcoming SW2. I think I'm going to go ahead and get it anyway but I was just curious if anyone had any long(ish)-term experience with v3.0 emulated on Linux.

    Take a look in this thread: iGuidance on Linux

    Sounds like iGuidance 2.1 worked fairly well in Wine, but no experiences with 3.0 posted.
    System status: in progress

    I downloaded and installed RoadNav under Ubuntu to test on my laptop (Dell D800). It worked fine with Amarok playing and netstumbler running. I only tested it on a drive to work, but it seemed to do just fine. I didn't try searching or 3D views, etc, just tracking my drive. I will test further in the coming weeks.

    I hope that RoadNav runs faster on Linux than it does on Windows, because it was excruciatingly slow on my computer. Then again, Roadster does look much better. Maybe I'll download it onto my linux computer to see how fast they run.

    Well I'll be getting it in the coming few weeks so I'll post my results then.

    Why are we still talking about RoadNav here? Roadster is where it's at!
