    i'm not sure when it'll be ready. Since i built the core I know there needed to be some fine tuning done. The problem with going GPS is you gotta take some time to test your code on the road. So it makes it a bit more time consuming. More so since we are doing real time routing and turn by turn directions.

    Most apps that use mappoint you actually have to type in your start location and your destination. With this you just enter your destination and at any time you can hit a button and it'll find where you are and create a route for you. If you get off track you simply hit the button again and it'll re-route for you.

    I played with the beta w/Earthmate USB...it takes a lot to get it to work nicely, but I suspect its more of the shoddy Earthmate serial drivers...the virtual port KEEPS dissappearing on me, forcing reboot/reinstall of the virtual com port...any solutions?

    there isn't a public one yet. Carcomp took my code and is in the process of merging it in. I'm not even sure about a release date but i think it might be getting close. he has begun to release some betas
