    GPS Software

    Hi,

    i'm attempting to try RR, but I am finding problems before even running the installer. The instructions say to install your GPS software first, well CF has this included, so I have searched for posts advising for good, integrated, UK GPS. And after readign a million posts, I have concluded that most posts are from 2008, and no-one mentions up to date UK maps.

    I have looked, and so far I can only find Mappoint that is up to date and with relatively up to date UK maps.

    Can anyone suggest suitable software?

    I wont hold my breath......And how long before this ends in a section I didnt post to?

    There's a few that i us here in the UK ,, sygic and Garmin,igo8,, a few skins support these app's , but you still need to install the app yourself,,

    Welcome to RR


    Gps dose not have to be installed 1st ,,, don't know why it states that ,, you can run RR without GPS app, or add later when you have settled on a app to use.

    but i would say ,, install the player you wish to use 1st ,,, codecs if needed ,, latest flash player , then install rr ,,, don't jump in the deep end and install a none default skin
    from the skin release section of this forum,, select the default carwings skin from within the RR installer ,, get use to what RR dose and set up..
    RR team and others have , made the default skin very useable , for a 1st timer ..


    theres a few selections through the installer , that may still confuse you, but research will help you

    I know Garmin have stopped supporting Pc version,, and sygic have brought out a new version ,, i have 2010 maps on both ,,

    the downfall of Garmin is that it dose not have its own OSK,, so a hack plugin by (el camino) is needed...
    sygic i have had no issues with as of yet , its simple and effective
    igo8 is very graphical ,, don't know about map updates don't use it anymore...

    all sat nav app's apart from ig and Mappoint are hacks , they are not truly supported by RR..

    Good luck

    For the GPS application, Sygic FLEET is a good idea !!!

    Thanks for your help. Do you mind me askign which version of Sygic Drive you are running, I again cant seem to see any reference to this software running on a 'normal' windows OS since 2008?

    I assume the software is called Sygic Drive XP?
