    For me D3 or MapMonkey, with a slight preference for MM.

    I would say it depends for what. If you plan to add D3 to NMS I would suggest you to code very simple support yourself directly. Thus you would not have to care about possible bugs/incompatibilities/design issues between NMC and FreeDrive/MapMonkey.
    I do not think most of users require more then simple navigation from A to B. I mean speed, ETA/ETR info, POI's and such stuff is nice but... so I do not think it will be hard to code. At least CDR has learned VB6 on FreeDrive and it works

    The best advantage using FreeDrive or MapMonkey: that's a big bunch of functions that i don't have to recode, and this is more time to begin and complete other functions.

    Advantage of coding directly: better integration, perhaps more features, but LOT of time to code

    I think i'll start with MapMonkey or FreeDrive, but i cant decide...

    Mapmonkey has the speed cameras already.

    Freedrive actually looks diferent and I quite like what he is try to do.

    Why not have both and give the user the option. And then code your own later.

    Just setup special GPS pointer for the external programs and have a option of selecting which gps you want.

    I like just having the MM or freedrive embeded maybe what you can do is have different support for the GPS so it has diff buttons on the GPS screen and has the option to hide and not quit the app.

    just a thought no use making it yourself cause ppl will use MM or freedrive if there is basic d3 support in NMC.

    well I've nearly finished FreeDrives SDK, just got a couple more things to do.. couple of days and it should be done. It uses the same SDK format as RoadRunner..

    I find MM has more functionality as Freedrive (sorry CDR, no offence). Must say I only threw a quick eye at Freedrive. When finding time I'll try it out more in depth ( but finding time these days ...)

    Hey no offence taken m8.. I agree with you ! The one thing FreeDrive can offer is the ablilty to be alittle more skinable and touchscreen friendly, but I havent added speed cams yet, thats really the last thing left to do. I do have afew other idea.. but we shall see. I would wait till version 0.5 is released its far better than the current public 0.4 version.
