    Will there ever be SD for Australia???

    Hi all,

    As per the title, will SD ever be supported for Australia? I know the only thing stopping its release here is the lack of navigation software but wouldn't it be commonsense for SD to use a Navcor that is compatible for all countries around the world? I mean sales would go through the roof.
    Iguidance and mappoint are hardly orientated for global sales but other software is e.g.

    - Destinator (I know I know)

    - Tomtom 7 would be by far the best solution if the guys at SD could convince them to release a SD only version (I don’t think it would cost that much - but then again I’m no programmer)

    - Garmin also has some great nav software.

    - Co pilot.

    - I’m sure there’s more but the above list is what I know and have tried.

    I for one would be willing to purchase SD in a flash if I new there was an integrated nav solution for Oz. But at the moment Centrafuse is looking more and more likely but I know the potential of my G4 is not fully harnessed with CF.

    It would be great if even a plug in (or digi mod) was released that allowed some of the above nav software to be installed.

    My thoughts only

    That would be fantastic!!!

    Just to get me prepared, what version of destinator should I have, thereís a great guide over at digital car UK (http://www.digital-car.co.uk/forum/s...ead.php?t=7114) thatís shows how to install Destinator on your PC. Is this what you followed?
    As I have all the files necessary for the above guide, and its seems to work quite well on my stand alone PC, but I have no clue on how to integrate it with SD.

    I had a play with the DEV. Environment tools last night, and managed to change the 'Navigation' menu to 'Destinator' and also got it to link to 'external apps'; from where I could launch Destinator. Only problem is that it doesnít launch in its own window, and SD minimises. I know thereís a guide around here showing how to embed a window within SD, but I like you donít have much time to experiment as Iím no programmer; I have never looked at VB, C++, Delphi or even the programming tools that come with SD before. So experimentation is the key, but will lose interest very quick as Iím away with work 3 days a week.

    Anyways, waiting patiently for your Digi-Mod, actually, I canít wait!!

    Cheers

    Yep.
    It is in testing at the moment. I should get time to walk though the install and make sure everything works this week.
