In car Navigation for Lap Top

Post by Biggles Bear » 20 October 03 6:54 pm

Is there any software out there that will let your GPS/Laptop combination perform the same function as a dedicated in car SatNav system, i.e. audible directions?

Oziexplorer installed on the laptop connected to your gps and use the moving map function, works very very well, if you have street level maps you can watch on the screen where you are going.

Ozi can't figure out the route for you though. i.e. It can't figure out the best way to get from A to B, but if you tell it a route (either by drawing it on a map in Ozi or by uploading it from a file or GPSr) it can navigate you through it.

If you have any of the Garmin software that allows for auto routing eg City Nav ver 4 or 5, a gps, laptop and cabling then you can d/l this programme from Garmin website called nRoute. This will emulate all the functions of the Street Pilot 3 GPS except for the touchscreen.

I have been using this programme for a while now and it is fantastic ... 0-00321-00

Destinator 3 does this, but has a price tag to match. I am still to test it out, as i only just got my laptop and GPS mouse is in the mail off ebay, but all reports that i have read from are good. It does all the voice stuff, as well as rerouting on the fly.

will let you know how it goes.
