[FRONTEND] MMC R&D Question - GPS
I want to create my own integrated GPS solution for MMC. I have 3 options right now that I have been thinking about and wanted to get some thoughts from you guys.
Option 1 - Destinator:
I can sign a deal and pay for the Destinator SDK. This would allow me to
integrate the latest Destinator stuff into MMC.
Option 2 - MapPoint
Microsoft MapPoint has a nice SDK and OEM deal. I can resell the maps
with MMC (similar to StreetDeck). I have heard that MapPoint sucks, but I
can not back this claim up since I have never used it. Is it really that bad?
Option 3 - Garmin
Sign a deal with Garmin to use there devices and Map data. This would
allow for a more abstract solution. I can build the interfaces that would
work on both Windows and Mac OS X. This would also be the most
complex and time consuming though...
The first two options can be done some what quickly, but tie me down to Windows. The last option would take longer but would allow a very nice seamless transition between Windows and Mac OS X.
What are your thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance guys!
