    People should note this should, in theory, only work under Win2k and WinXP, shouldn't do anything bad on another OS, just will not work. If there is any interest I'll make the settings configurable externaly in an INI file or something.

    Nice to see that feature working with a skin designed to use it. Kinda looks like you've got a Pocket PC embedded into your screen

    The advantage to using routis. routis is made for to work with a pocket pc as well so, I figured this would work well.

    Does Routis allow cross-map routing or only within the loaded map?

    What do you mean, you can load map data for the whole US on your PC.

    In Destinator on the IPAQ, and I believe the PC is the same, the maps are segmented to save space so you can pick and choose which ones to load (ideal for low capacity devices). You cannot route across maps, for example I drove from Boston to New York which spans two maps, I could not have my IPAW navigate me all the way there because ot spanned two maps, you have to switch maps and reroute.

    I believe Destinator 3 still has this limitation as it was originally designed for the PocketPC. I just wanted to make sure this isn't the case with other packages I consider.

    So in short... of you were of a mind to... you could create a route from Boston to LA using Routis...?

    Not totally true. Yes the maps are split on Destinator, so for example the UK is split into 5-6 different maps. You can route to anywhere else in the country though. When you load a map, it loads the minor roads for that area, but still has major roads for the whole country. So eg if I lived northwest UK and wanted to trael somewhere southeast, I'd load southeast map to get exact destination, then it'd take me via major roads (i don't wanna take country back-roads cross country!) and then minor roads to my destination.

    D3 will be better though apparently. They just have to releas the damn software! grrr..

    I suppose the issue I had (with US maps) was that I was trying to get to a street address at the other end which it didn't recognise and hence could not be set as a destination. Probably my refusal to read manuals, but hey, I expect this stuff to be obvious!
