    FAQ: What is the best GPS software?

    This poll is another popularity poll for newbies to see what GPS software options are out there.

    I like iGuidance and MapPoint2006 as it's integrated into StreetDeck.

    Microsoft streets and trips 2006,

    I used it when we where lost in DFW and it saved me alot of time, somehow we missed our exit, and went for a 30min joy ride lol, but all i had to do was enter where i want to go and set it as the end, and the gps would find me and reroute us, we should have been using it before OOPs

    I love mappoint, specially with the night mode. It's just a well populated map.

    I still use MM & FD for destinator maps with rotation. And to double check directions against Mappoint.

    I have TomTom on my PocketPC and it is incredible. Really cool.. Just don't think it's suitable for PC use with the emulator. But I'd pay some $$$ to get it on the PC if made available as a native windows application.

    Cool

    MS Streets & Trips 2006 for me. I haven't tried any other GPS software yet, but I've been satisfied with the results this one give. It even tells you the speed you're going too! :rofl

    I prefer iGuidance because it provides both PC and pocket PC applications. it was a BIRTCH trying to get TOMTOM to use my bluetooth, and I can at least TELL iGuidance what port it is connected on.

    using Delorme Street Atlas USA 2006

    Find it works great on a car pc setup as it has voice commands ( meaning you can talk to it ) as well as decent-sized buttons for a car monitor.
