    it does support the gps but it has to be a serial type not a usb for some reason, but it will support a bluetooth gps aslong as you set up the emulator for a gps handheld

    It supports USB GPS' with com port emulators, which is pretty much every USB GPS out there!

    I don't know what is your problem guys,but it take 30-40 sec to calculate a long route on a celeron d 2.4 ghz and about 10 sec for a short route.
    That is with tom tom 5.

    Yeah, is that normal? If you're used to MapPoint's 3-4 seconds and Destinator's near instant makes it feel like an age, especially if you auto-re-route.

    OK, you miss a turn by accident or decide you don't want to go that was as it looks congested.. You don't want to wait 30 seconds for it to re-route..

    Either way, I'm not gonna sit there for 30 seconds waiting for it just to generate a new route when I could be doing something better!

    Folder maps

    Hello guys,

    You may have already answer to this question (perhaps) ? But i didn't found any information about placing the maps for TomTom. When i open the program on the emulator everything works fine but at the end he tells me he didn't found the maps. So i would like to know where i should place those maps. Can somebody tell me how to do it.
