Track hire cars by Mike[_7_]
Looking for a solution - in the past year we have had a couple of people hire cars, but for whatever reason, they have been unable to return them or they wanted to drive them from our base to a different location and continue with another means of transport, and have us collect the vehicle which we are happy to do for an extra charge. This is rare, but does happen. We have sometimes had...

TomTom map update by The Wanderer
I have been thinking for some time about updating the map on my TT 910 Go. It appears that there have been 10 updates since I last did it. Having read previous posts about "new" maps being out of date upon release, is it really worth the cost?

Latest Tomtom maps by Scott
I see the latest so-called 'updated' UK & Ireland map has been published. I see the same errors that I have been reporting for over two years are still present, with a number of streets wrongly named. These are street names that have been in existence since I believe the 1920s. They are not just spelling mistakes or minor irregularities, but names that are just totally incorrect. I have...

What is the latest software known to work with Navigo ( Ebuyer ) sat navs? by clonet
I've had a 4.3 inch Navigo satnav for a couple of years or so courtesy Ebuyer. I ditched the Tubodog 5 default software quite soon after buying and have run Mio Maps 3.3 with full European maps dated ( I think 2008 ) since. Found it easy to change the software using a spare SD card. It works well, no complaints, and has speed camera warnings. I wondered what was the latest software(s) known to...

Garmin 550 by TheOwl1
I hate the way Garmin have their preferences. I use my sat nav in a Car and on a Motorcycle. When on the Motorcycle I usually want to go the most scenic route - no option for that you just have to figure the most scenic route yourself by using POI's or looking on the map before your trip. Say I wanted to get from Point A to Point B in a Car if you pick shortest distance it can take you through...

Which PC navigation software for OZ? by JoeJoe
I have a generic BT GSP dongle, and I would ike to use it with a laptop whilst in OZ shortly to prepare routes, etc. I am looking to invest in something similar to AutoRoute that will cover OZ, but cannot seem to find anything... I am not looking for something free and with limited functionality, but prefer something with good and "official" maps (whatever that meens). TIA.

Online survey for satnav users. Have your say and help a charity. by littlejon
What do you think about your satnav? Would you like to take part in exciting new research by the University of Nottingham and help a UK registered charity? We are looking for volunteers to complete a short online survey about how they use their satnav. The survey should only take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous. Our only requirement is that you are a driver over...

Garmin maps by Scott
Does anyone know if it is possible to look at Garmin maps online, in the way that you can look at Tomtom (Tele Atlas) via Tomtom HOME? I would like to be able to check for myself how up to date they are, as there are certainly 'issues' with Tomtom's maps. Thanks Scott

ND-100 GPS Dongle by John Smith[_2_]
Got an ND-100 GPS dongle and can't figure out how to get the information off it and into any applications. Don't have a CD-drive so downloaded the driver and GPS utility from the website. Installed the drivers, plugged it in and it seems to be detected on all my USB ports, ranging from COM 6 to COM 8, although no light comes on like it is supposed to. Some reviews say that the light is hard...

Erratic GPS recording by Terry Pinnell
My recorded walk yesterday (Sunday 27th March, Sussex, UK, spells of rain) on my pocket computer (HPC Touch Pro 2 under Windows Mobile 6.1) was the worst I've seen. An 8 mile walk became about 11 miles, due to several bursts of erratic signals that went way outside the immediate vicinity. Like most of my walks, this included a proportion of lightly wooded track, but in the past that has just...

TomTom PDA questions by Alex Holden[_2_]
My satnav device of choice right now is a 3 year old Mio PDA with Tomtom installed. I'm relatively happy with the device, but I think it's time to upgrade. I'd rather a Windows Mobile based application, so I can simply install it on my phone (an HTC Touch HD,) but after trying out a recent standalone version of TomTom, I noticed that the instructions given were completely different to the...
