    Hi,

    Okay - maybe I'm not quite as GEEKy as I thought I was.

    I've seen the TV commercials for TomTom and others and have also become aware of Mapopolis Navigator and something called NavCard.

    What I can't seem to find is a primer - or "Dummies" site that will take me from cradle to grave on this stuff.

    I am a self admitted directionally challenged member of the male gender and could really use a good tool to help me on my frequent road trips rather than seeking out Mapquest or Google Maps all the time.

    I was unable to find another thread like this but if one exists - please point me in the right direction. If not - can you help turn this into our TreoCentral "Navigation for Dummies" thread??

    Oh yes - and I've seen cool Bluetooth tools called Parrot that look like they interact with the software..

    Any and all information is received graciously!!!

    Thanks!
    Regards - Randy

    Hii, Randy,

    Mapopolis is saying on GPSPassion.com that they have both the NavCard (contact support for the .prc) and the downloadable Navigator viewer in this release working on the Treo 700p.

    Go to their website and click on Support. Then look at the Navcard quick start guide. It's about as easy as a personal navigation system gets, althought I have NOT seen it running on a Treo 700p. I see they also have a new GPS in their Palm bundle.

    Look in Palm OS Apps section....2nd sticky for the install.

    Read these:

    I believe Seidio has a 700p equivalent for the 4850 is updated for the 700p but not the 2360 as yet.

    I posted a comparison review of the two products a while back:

    I just wanted to mention that I did ready your review, I found it informative.

    I have beenusing the mapopolis map packs for a few days now I realy do like the way these work, that is of course the way i like to do the mapping routing, others may find it a bit cumbersom, I have no proglem generating routs or having the program do a re-route when I do drive to some place it was not expecting, I have used stand alone GPS programs, and GPS/mapping programs on a lap top, when you miss a turn on those you just missed a turn. no re-routing, at least not on the ones that I have, I like Mapopolis.

    Don't forget Garmin GPS 10. This seems to work pretty well on the Treo 700p. I've posted a review, but in general the maps and points of interest are better on the Garmin then TomTom.
