    I'm very interested in this. My maps for Destinator are well out of date. I have Navigator 4 but it's not very car friendly, and would love to upgrade to this.

    Has anyone started using it yet in their systems??

    I ended up ordering this yesterday anyway, it just looked too good to leave alone. Received it today and installed it on the carPC. I've only been able to test it in my lunch hour so far, but first impressions are pretty good.

    The GUI is very nice! So I set to work connecting the GPS mouse (com port 5), this didn't show up in the navigator settings for some reason, so I set the com port to 9 and I was connected. I also looked at some of the other setting options and changed them to what I thought I might need.

    Plotting my first destination was simple using the postcode, but couldn't find anywhere to input a house number (that might be something I'm doing wrong though). Then I set off, voice prompts are clear and precise and the display is excellent. My only niggle is that when driving down a straight road the direction of the road on screen is at a slight angle. That is actually quite hard to explain, with Destinator if it was a straight road then the road would point to 12 o'clock, with navigator it points to 1 o'clock?? I have played about with auto zoom and snap to GPS and this doesn't seem to make a difference. Like I said it's more of a niggle.

    The odometer is a nice touch, and a few of the other features may come in handy in the future. I have yet to find out how to import speed cameras, so if anyone know please tell me, if I find out before that I will post.

    I'm going to need some help trying to embedd this into road runner, as I wouldn't know where to start, or even know if it's possible.

    I'll edit this post as I go. Hope this helps.

    Navigator 4.n was the same. I assumed - without any evidence at all - that it was due to the difference between true North and Magnetic North.

    I too haven't worked out yet how to use the camera feature.

    Just received it in the mail today, had a quick look on my laptop, and it looks very nice, menu buttons are big, generally a good impression compared to destinator based gps as i am running now. I will make screencaps when i get it running with a gps attached.

    At first glance one problem i am seeing is that there is no settings for fullscreen/resolution/size of the GPS window, and Roadrunner can't resize the window, this is probably going to cause some problems with embedding.
