    I've been using TripPilot for the past 4 months. Initially it worked great with my Sprint T600. About 3 weeks later it started to have network timeouts when downloading routes. Subsequently I replaced by T600 for the dreaded network searching problem, still having issues with TripPilot.

    Funny thing, I've used the program with my GSM T600 (yep, have two of them!), using T-Zones, no problems, downloads everything quickly.

    Is anyone else using TripPilot with Sprint T600 and if so, are you having problems?

    Thanks

    Hi BoeingPilot, I use it here in Europe.
    Sometimes thesame happens to me, but it start by itselve again.
    From 8.-15.8.2004 I will use it with a rent car in Italy, specially in the toscana.
    I hope it works well.
    I will inform here after that.

    I just looked into their website. I am very interested in this product. What GPS are you using with it and the Treo 600 in the US please?

    I'm using it with a Radio Shack digitraveler, a serial sync cable and homemade adapter cable.

    Works great when I can download routes!

    Based on this thread, I downloaded the demo. Can anyone tell me how to configure it to use the native internet connection instead of looking for an external modem?

    The problems I've had has been using the sprint network in PA, NJ & NY. On vacation in Charleston SC, it works with no problem.

    Overall Vision appears to be quicker here. I would conclude that something is screwy with the Sprint network up north.

    Oh well...

    OK, I played with it. Beautiful graphics, but I'll probably stick with Mapopolis since it supports on-the-fly rerouting if you deviate from the route. It also is easy to use the current GPS position as the starting point of a new route. It isn't pretty, but it does the job. TripPilot seems to download the best route and expect you to follow it.

    True, it's not the most flexible (as Mapopolis). However having to download the correct maps for Mapopolis is a pain. Additionally, not all Mapopolis maps support GPS. (For example, Lancaster PA)

    The biggest advantage for TripPilot is that you can get maps for all of the US and much of Europe on the fly. For someone who travels as much as I do, this is great. For example, was in Boston the other day, and even though I didn't have my GPS, I at least could get directions while walking through town. Same thing last week in Charleston. The good thing is that you don't have to plan ahead to use the service.

    Just my 2 cents
