Before I go configuring all these emulators etc etc, is this likely to run so that it is "usable" on our car PCs? By usable I mean:
1. able to run within a front end software (e.g. RR)
2. able to run with music playing
3. able to run smoothly graphics-wise
4. be responive in menus etc
...all within reason
I don't mind about (re)routing calculation time etc. Just want to be able to use it.
I have an EPIA SP13000 512 RAM etc. for e.g.
IS IT GOING TO WORK? If so, is using tomtom 3 a better idea than tomtom 5?
(regardless of the answers to this I'm going to try it anyway but just wanted to know )
I have been playing around with emulating TomTom Navigator 5 with a PocketPC emulator. I can confirm - Although it does functionally work fine, it is no where near fast enough to be "usable". It has almost 100% CPU usage on my desktop PC and is really sluggish - so I dread to think of the speed of it on my car PC! The PocketPC version is nowhere near as smooth (the graphics refresh rate) as the stand-alone version from TomTom (e.g. TomTom Go) anyway, so it wouldnt look as nice even it did work fine. This is such a shame as TomTom is easily the best nav software. Make us a PC SDK TomTom!!
Now waiting to get hold of TomTom 3 to give that a try. If youre right ispartacus75 this could still work yet! I will let you know the results...
