NAVMAN SmartPath Trips and City (TomTom) for Palm PDA's

With SmartPath there are two kinds of software.  To try and stay close to the paper maps and to keep disk usage to a minimum, two mapping programs were created.  One that gives you an atlas style maps where you might want to go the length or breadth of the country, and one that gives you A-Z style street maps for a specific city.  The two mapping programs are called Trips (Atlast) and City (A-Z). 


Having the two types of maps split out, sometimes is quite nice, but does hinder you.  Why does it hinder you ?  Okay, let me try to explain.  SmartPath Trips is one complete map of the whole of the UK, so you can load the whole map onto your CF card and you've got the whole country in Atlas form.  If you are travelling from the south to the north, then in most cases you would want an atlas style map, which Trips gives you.  However, if you are also travelling through town centres then you will also want a street atlas.  Unfortunately the way SmartPath City is configured is that you load the maps for a particular town or city and cannot plot journeys between maps.  If you were travelling from south to north and you wanted to jump to a higher zoom level so you see more than A or B roads on the City software, then you would have to turn off the GPS Receiver, close Trips, load City, power on the GPS Receiver, and then load the city map you are at, find your position and continue on your way.  As you can probably understand, this is a nightmare to navigate through!  Other GPS software are now coming with a single map, but again because of the detail level.



SmartPath Trip is the application of choice when you need to travel from town to town or city to city.

Because of this, the selection of maps supplied with SmartPath Trip, cover whole countries. Simply install the desired country on your handheld and you are fully equipped to navigate to and from any town or city across the entire country.

Countries covered by SmartPath Trip currently include - Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic & Slovakia, Denmark, Eire, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Scandinavia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Mainland U.K.




Most maps are supplied in varying degrees of detail. In this way you are able to carry just the right amount of detail suitable for your journey, leaving the maximum amount of memory available in your handheld for your other important data.

SmartPath Trip also supports multiple maps. If you are touring Europe, simply install additional maps to cover all of the countries you plan on visiting.
