    Does this still stand ?

    i havent yet tried this in the car, but just wondering does car icon and the screen move along smoothly as it would in a factory navi, or will it be the same 1hz refresh that you get in a regular navi like iguidance or destinator? i would really like it to be nice and smooth, and i remember one demo video i saw looking like that....?

    In my setup it seems to jump in 50m+/- steps, depending upon your speed.

    one major problem ive noticed is that when stopped at an intersection, the gps loses track of exactly which direction i am pointed. i am presuming this is just a natural side effect of gps position jumping around 10 feet in any direction. i assume that mapping software takes this into account and prevents the car icon from jumping around and changing directions when it knows the car is stopped. can goops be updated with any such feature?

    GooPs already has that feature (min rotation speed in the cfg).

    RREarth does not.

    I just use RREarth to embed and kill popups. I use GE_GPSOFF to turn off all the GPS stuff and let GooPs take care of that in the background instead. This also allows me to make buttons that copy differen GooPs cfg files over so I can switch views (chase, street, freeway, etc.).

    I just installed and CPU load with Celeron 1.8 gig is at 95%-100% making it pretty much unusable.
