Darren. Thanks for reply - I'd be very interested in your views on the "Apple protocol BT" devices, when you've had chance to look into this. In particular, I assume they would be more sensitive and a ...

I'm trying to get my mind around what the options are for adding a good external GPS capability to an iPhone or iTouch (I have one of each). Until recently I thought that the only options were:

I've bought the TT carkit for my iPod Touch and it is working fine with TT Europe (and Memory Map and CityMaps2Go, etc). BUT I am trying to see how to use it with Memory Map when out walking. I've g ...

Success! Thanks for the help on this. All is now clear(er). If you don't get a CD with your device, it seems that the way to get Mapsource on your PC is to download the latest version of the map wh ...

Thanks for reply and link to Mapsource manual. No, the Nuvi did not come with CD or DVD. I've just checked both Garmin and Amazon web sites and there is no indication on either that the Nuvi should h ...

Paul, thanks for your help on this. Just to be clear, all the route planning I was talking about was with the GPS Simulator switched on, so that the signal strength is not an issue. And yes, I do hav ...

I have searched this forum, honest, but still can't find out some basic info about Mapsource. I've just bought a Nuvi250, successfully registered it with Garmin and installed updated software (5.00) a ...
