PocketGPSWorld GPS Software/Archive Menu


Every year the SatNav software systems increase in power and complexity. There are still some people using software that is over two years old, but they are few and far between.

This section is where we retire our older reviews to so we can look back and long for that extended period waiting for the satellite fix, with your friends all hanging around impatiently…

destinator2review.php Destinator 2 Review
New and improved, the new Destinator 2 distances itself in many ways from the previous version we reviewed (v1.72). The menu system is re-designed, bigger buttons allowing for finger pressing and a new 3D drive view is added as just a few of the new features.
destinator3.php Destinator 3 European Review
Looking at Destinator 3, it really is a new product. It looks nothing like Destinator 2, and in-fact it actually makes Destinator 2 in terms of mapping support look quite an old dinosaur! Destinator has finally come of age, the product really looks well rounded and attractive.

tomtomnavigatorsw.php Pocket GPS TomTom Navigator Software Review for the Pocket PC
TomTom (also known as Palmtop.nl) were the original Pocket PC GPS mapping company. They created Route Planner, TomTom CityMaps and also the re-badged versions of NAVMAN software (SmartPath City & Trips). Well, TomTom have gone one step further to keep themselves at the top of the GPS software category by not only providing their award winning maps, but added some features that other GPS software now have as standard.

tomtommia.php TomTom Navigator MIA (Missing In Action)
There have been lots of messages on the forums and in personal emails to me regarding TomTom Navigator where people have found errors in the maps. TomTom have been providing fixes via TeleAtlas for the maps since TomTom was released, but there are still quite a number of outstanding map errors that people are noticing. TomTom have said theyare investigating all of these matters that are reported to their support department and are fixing these with map updates as soon as possible! We thought it might be better to collate the problems and show comparison screenshots so it also gives TomTom more information to go on, as it is always easier to see the problem if you can see it rather than having it described to you.
