    After using PC Navigator 6 for a bit I have found some niggling points with it:

    - The voice is REALLY annoying (UK female, sounds like a slight Aussie accent)
    - Guidance voice speaks too much (tells me at 800yds, 500yds, 200yds, at the corner! - seems overkill)
    - Has routed me down some strange places, it even TOLD me to go straight when on the map it showed my destination was down the next right turn!
    - Tracks the vehicle on the map about 2 lanes left of where I actually am.. (works fine using Navigon with same GPS)
    - Doesn't appear to support pre route planning (ie. Point A to Point B so I can see how far it is, what route it will take etc..)

    on the plus side;

    + Nice easy to see buttons when using touchscreen
    + Built in OSK
    + Maps seems pretty accurate so far

    I am interested in purchasing a copy of the above software, however I have been told that it can't be windowed which means I can't embed it
    into my carpc software (Road Runner). I have been told that you intend to release a fix for this, do you have any idea when this fix will be released, and when it is whether it will be a free upgrade.

    Thankyou for the information.
    Will that be PC Navigator 7 (ie I would need to pay for an upgrade) or a patch to v6 (essentially a free patch)

    Helpful and informative - never mind I've got NavigatoR unlocked and its fantastic - watch out on the live on my previous post on DC where I'll be doing a review plus I'm taking questions... eg things you want me to looks at.

    Oh - and for our US chums there is US version called http://www.oncoursenavigator.com/ so it may just be a D3 killer

    ok i tried pc navigator 6, and what can i say.. it is very promising.. if we can embed this into RR and have the music volume lowered, i think it will be a D3 replacement..

    As for Navigon Navigator 2.. sad it only has Athens not entire Greece supported!!!

    I can’t believe that they can charge for what is essentially an "FIX". I’ve only just (3 weeks ago) purchased ver 6 and having to pay for ver 7 is an outrage. Talk about looking after your customers…

    I can't believe that either. All their stock, advertising material, etc for v6 would also become immediately useless. I would imagine a product would have a lifetime of at least a year.

    dear sir,
    i am interested in pc navigator 6 for pc.
    i have a few questions to ask you which will determine my decision to buy it
    1 - I live in athens greece, and since i have seen your software supports greek, it does not support greek keyboard..it recognizes some characters which are close to the english, but when i need some special greek charachters i have to use "greeklish"?? do you plan to have a better greek support in version 7
    2 - ver 6 can not be run in "window" mode can it?? (this is important for Car PC).
    3 - will ver 7 have an SDK?? ver 6 does not.
    4 - how do I know the date of the maps, and how to update. Greek maps are TELEATLAS right??

    thank you
    George M.
    from what i understand they might have "windowed mode" support for ver 6

    B,000,250,200,050,"LOAD;pcnavigator.skin;GPS;C:\Pr ogram Files\PC_Navigator6\PC_Navigator.exe;Navigator 6",""
    What is the "main skin file"? skin_browser?

    C01,204,42,596,516,192
    As far as I understand you made a file "pcnavigator.skin" and those two lines are the only ones in it?

    Could you please explain to me what to do exactly, step-by-step to embed Navigator v4?
    TIA
