Hey guys,

I have a Garmin GPSMap60C and also an IPAQ.

I can use the GPS to map tracks and save to computer etc., but am looking for a set of maps for travel directions etc.

What is the best way to set these two up so I can have the best solution...

Basically I want to enter an address and it show 'Turn Left here' etc.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Nick.

Destinator sounds like it will do what you want ..

ExplorOz.com/Shop/DisplayItems.asp?CategoryID=12&ClassID=24" target="EOF" class="lbg">Destinator

No idea if there are cheaper options (considering you already have the hardware).

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

I would have though that the best(cheapest??) option for autorouting for your GPSMap60C would be a copy of the City Navigator??

I don't know excactly how much a copy of the Garmin City Navigator mapping software costs....

The larger screen of the PDA would be an advantage, but as the GPSMap is autorouting capable!!!

I would have set the Garmin up as the 'navigator', and use OziCE to view a larger map of the current position area!!

cheers.

G'day Nick

Two products CoPilot Live and Destinator for the PDA. You will need to check you PDA specs against the product requirement. Add a GPS cable from your GPS to your PDA ( does your GPS have this capability?) purchase some RAM mounts. USB charging cable for the PDA ( 12/24volt adapter)

Destinator Australia and CoPilot Live Site and RAM mounts at Johnny Appleseed GPS

Volume from the PDA speaker may be a problem. Use a FM transmitter to overcome this or a powered RAM mount.

Regards

Paul

Just buy a copy of city naviagator 6. I use it my 60cs and it works a treat. No need to cart a pda around.

One question... I love the voice commands.... I assume the GSP MAP60 alone doesn't provide voice, but does Destinator PN?

Thanks

Destinator does but I found them annoying, City Navigator has a beep for the initial notice of a turn and two beeps when you get closer its much more aurally pleasing.
