    I already tried iGuidance in Fusion, next step is to try it with UNITY. Unity is the feature from VMFusion that can run apps embeded in MAC.

    I use Garmin Mobile PC in Fusion fullscreen. I have Spaces set up with ICE3 in Space 1 and Fusion/Mobile PC in Space 2. I switch between them with a Griffin PowerMate. I find Mobile PC to be much friendlier than iGuidance.
    Any day is a good day for golf.

    I may be going back a step but, LOL. There is a "GPS" option on ICE3. are we able to link any GPS systems to this option in ICE3?

    yes it is grayed out but I thought that was only the case because I do not have any GPS linked to it to make it a useable option

    just curious but with the iphone app change back in september a bunch of navigation apps showed up for the iphone - port these aps to leopard

    or maybe the solution is to port the iphone OS or itouch OS - which are shrunk operating systems to a mac. Really what we are trying to do is create a hardwired iphone with a bigger screen into the car

    When you guys say you are running Mobile PC in "fusion" , what does that mean?
    Also I see on ebay they are selling the mobile pc but it does not list that it is compatable for macs?
    Sorry for the beginer questions.

    MobilePC is not compatible with Mac OS X, you have to run it in Windows, which is why you need a virtual machine environment. AFAIK, there is not a satisfactory mobile navigation app for Mac OS X.

    Fusion is VMWare Fusion, a "virtual machine" that you load Windows into on a Mac. I have Windows XP running inside the Fusion virtual machine which runs the Garmin MobilePC app in fullscreen mode for me.

    I also have two virtual desktops, called Spaces on Mac OS X. I switch between Spaces using a Griffin PowerMate knob. In Space 1 I have ICE3 for my music jukebox and in Space 2 I have MobilePC navigation running.
