    The SDK for 6.x is not out yet, so no i have not tried it.
    As you may have seen the screen resize has been brought to directions attention a few times now, and they promise that this is being worked on. Personally i don't care about speed cameras, as they are not stationary where i live.

    It wasn't just speed cams that I was thinking about, it would also be useful to be able to add your own custom poi's for wireless hotspots etc... I've looked at the poi files and the only one that you can add is cat999.mef, as the existing poi catagories only go up to about 040 there might be others, but I havent found any.

    I've tried all sorts to get the window to behave in the way I want it to, I can send it to my touch screen with ati hydravision, but the menu's still appear on the primary monitor which is a pain. It does embed into roadrunner ok, but it resizes to your desktop display depth before it embeds, giving you a larger than ideal window area.

    I'm also not all that sure how new the maps are, the D6 maps seem newer to me, they have a few changes on them locally to me that N6 doesn't

    Please see below a mail exchange that I've had with Directions. I'm not sure what the "it" is that will be released after CEBIT but it's good to know that they're still developing this product.

    it will be released just after CeBIT, in approx 3 weeks time

    Thank you for your reply to my email. Has there been any any progress since then? So far as I'm aware version 6.4.38 which was released in January doesn't offer the possibility to run the program in a resizable window.

    Best Regards

    Subject: PC Navigator 6


    I recently purchased PC Navigator 6 as an upgrade to Navigator 4.4 which I have used since early last year. I used Navigator 4.4 on a PC permanently installed in my car as part of Road Runner a software suite that enables me to play music, control my radio and mobile phone etc. This was possible because Navigator 4.4 runs inside a window.

    PC Navigator 6 on the other hand appears to run only as a full screen application thus making it impossible to to use within Road Runner. Do you have any plans to remove this restriction on PC Navigator 6? To me this would seem a very desirable improvement for you to offer since the current interface is effectively the same as you can get with a hand held device. I would have thought that most people buying a PC version of a programme would expect it to offer PC like characteristics, such as multiple resizable windows otherwise there is no point in using a PC to navigate instead of a hand held device.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards

    Graham Diacon

    I agree and I don't understand their answer. They say "it" will be available after CEBIT but don't explain what "it" is.

    A new version, an SDK or an ocx?

    I've since had this info from Directions. I don't understand "....TCP commend to send destination" but at least we'll have a resizeable window

    I've also asked about the improvements mentioned here in this thread, had this answer;

    "Version 7 after CeBIT, end of March/April."

    If it's Version 7 rather than 6.nn will they try to charge us in order to get what we should have had in the begining?
