    USGlobalSat GPS/Route 66 w/Mac mini

    Here is the setup and software install write-up on RainyDayGarage.

    http://www.rainydaymagazine.com/RDM2...erGPSSetup.htm

    We'll be doing the road test using the G3 laptop in the next few days...once we figure out this Route66 software.

    Seems to work fine with the Mac mini.

    Im running Route 66 in my 350z setup too. One question for you. I see in your screenshots you got the street window to maximize. How did you do that? I can't seem to get rid of the left hand side window and bottom window. Any insight would be great.

    The upper left most icon...clicking on that expands the app window to show just the map. Then we just expanded the app's window to max using the normal Mac OS (green +) window button.

    Thanks i'll give it a wirl on my drive home.. The instructions manual/user manual was great. Im just kidding - it's non existent. I cannot believe they include NO users manual with this software. What kind of company is this!.

    I noticed that Route66 doesn't support Tiger. Anyone try to install it anyway?

    Been working just fine

    I installed Route 66 before I upgraded...did the upgrade to Tiger....still works fine as far as I can tell. Not the greatest program in the world but I'm being patient.

    I have Route 66 running on tiger. It lags like a mofo though. Dosen't show my exact position till I sit there for like 5 seconds. Say I am driving down a road and stop and a cross street. It takes a good 5 seconds for it to catch up. Anyway to fix this? Also is there any way to get the map to rotate when you turn the vehicle so there is not always a static north?
