Which Navigation map software is the best out there to use???
      #15265 - 09/09/04 03:03 AM

Hi,

I bought Mitac Mio 168 which came with Destinator map software, but I was wondering which map software is really the best out there? Pocket Map Navigator, Destinator, etc?? Your opinion is appreciated.


Thanks!

Actually none of the navigation software developers (such as Destinator, Navman, SpaceMachine...) make their own map software. They all license them from map makers such as NAVTEQ, TeleAtlas, etc.. Read our evaluation guide for more on this: http://www.pdabuyersguide.com/tips/GPS/GPS_eval.htm

The best thing to do when you are choosing a package is to "sample" the map data when you can. We always mention whose map a certain GPS package is licensing in our reviews so that you know what you end up getting.
