So why not use XPort3?
I'll go with this nav system when the SDK is available.
One question/request to pass on to Directions maybe (wilgartw?)
- Could it include GPS Gate (http://www.franson.com/gpsgate/) functionality so that additional sw could be added without buying a GPSGate licens?
I want to use GPS data to my GooPs tracker, and that added feature would save me 30USD.
I have now tried XPort out.
It is a very easy application to run and it does the job. One thing though...
It connects to internet by dialing up internet on my BT phone! Why? Spyware?
I've sent a question to curioustech (telling name?) and I think I will wait using it until I got an explanation.
I have now got message from Curioustech that when pressing "service" the ports are scanned. No data transfer
The Navigator maps is quite unusable in Central-East Europe (Hungary,Croatia)
they won't update this....
look at Croatia in this """"navigation software"""""
the D3 map is better than this
Greek map also don't have very good coverage...except athens..D3 maps are better too
EDIT: ok contacted directions again..
Q: thank you for your reply
one more question.. does Pc navigator use standard Teleatlas maps? upgrade is via Teleatlas or you? on your site there is nothing about map upgrading!!
A:standard TA map in OUR format, so you can only upgrade from us
map upgrades are discounted to registered users

I just got a mail from directions that says 2-3 weeks until release of version 7.
A week ago I wrote 'em a letter asking why the road on the screen is at a slight 20 degree angle when I'm driving down a straight way and weather it's gonna be the same in the next, 7th, version. Still havn't got any freaking answers.
So, if they can't even answer a simple question then I don't think they gonna do any "extras" in terms of demo versions and whatnot.
Well, there was no demo versions of ver.4 or 6, so i don't think there will be any of ver7....but thats all speculation.
