Hello folks,

I've got an Asus A636N with destinator 6.1 and north american maps (I'm in Canada), it works reasonably well but it's custom POI support and graphics are only "ok", and no TTS.

I'm planning a trip to the UK later in the year and will want UK maps. I can buy euro maps (Navteq 06q1) for $100 for DN6 (DN7 isn't available here).

Or I can buy Dest7 overseas (06Q4) for ~$200? and maybe loose access to my north american maps, and certainly be in a funky support position.

Or I can wait until Tomtom brings their ver7 functionality to the PDA platform and pay ~$150? + whatever they charge to download extra maps thru their "home" site.

Or I can buy Copilot7 now (price for software and both sets of maps unknown).

Or I could leave my PDA at home and buy a cheap PNA when I arrive and adapt to it sight unseen.

Or something I hadn't thought of.

I guess I could buy UK only software and maps from one of the above but I'd sort of like to have some time to test drive it before the trip if I'm switching.

Are Tomtom and/or Copilot worth the switch?
