    Almost all have nav capabilities, most use either Iguidance, or destinator maps for it. None offer the maps included for free because of issues about theft. There are several free options for nav but they do not integrate into most frontends as far as I know. Your best bet is either try all the frontends and find one that you like then buy the nav software to go with it or use one of the stand alone nav programs availavble seperate.

    Eh?
    StreetDeck includes maps for the US, as well as the rest of North America. One of the upper echelons of Centrafuse will include map data as well, I believe.

    There is your problem. Map data isn't free.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    the problem with that is that street deck still is not released yet and the maps do not come with it, at least the trial version.
    I want to tryo out the version with maps for my area before I spend 300 bones..

    StreetDeck is released. There's an entire support forum for it. Where are you seeing that it's not released yet?

    It's been released for around a year now.

    It's also not $300. It's $200 and includes map data from Map Point.

    If you want to download a demo of Map Point, you should be able to do so.

    We cannot include nav data in the demo because of copy right issues and theft issues.

    If you don't want the map data and would rather use another mapping program, you can pay only $119.99 for the rest of the program minus map data and a few other minor things.

    Please post on the forums! Chances are, someone else has or will have the same questions as you!
