depends what you want the GPS for. If it is for fully fledged Driving and sat nav for directions, tomtom 6 works fine, and is certainly cheaper than tomtom5 used to be.
Co-pilot theoretically should work fine.
Map4PDA seems to be working fine on mine, although Google maps doesn't.
I should imagine the others like route 66, destinator and Navigon etc should work fine. Although I have heard that there may be problems with I-go.
for stuff like orienteering and geocahcing (maybe this thing is a little large for taking on that sort of trip) Fugawi and ozi should be ok i suppose.
I personally use tomtom and Map4PDA and both works superbly. Although tomtom is horrendously slow to pick up a fix, whereas Map4PDA picks up in under 30 seconds.
Map4PDA is free by the way.
Map4PDA looks good but puts me in the middle of san francisco, which is somewhere i would love to be, but am no where near.
Does Tom Tom do a version that doesnt require a windows pc to use? I only have osx.
HTC Tytn II (Kaiser) / OS: WM6 5.2.1620 / ROM: 1.56.405.5 / Radio: 126.96.36.199
Map 4 PDA defaults to the centre of San Francisco when it hasn't got a fix.
Press Menu and then GPS
Tap Search GPS and when that finishes, tap Start GPS.
menu location will tell you when you have a good fix when the long/latt appears at the top.
Then tap menu map and you'll see it zooming in to where you are.
TomTom is good i agree, but i wouldn't say it is the best. Going up to a business meeting it told us to bear right, when actually it meant take this slip road, go round the roundabout and turn onto the fourth exit. Co Pilot is not as easy to use but it seems to pick up a bit quicker. And besides, TomTom isn't exactly quick in Landscape VGA....
