I have finally settled for a GPS system for the car – and for the city trip etc. First choice was TomTom. They offer both a “device” solution and a PDA solution. Not that I really need a PDA, but it makes the whole system more mobile, i.e. I can use not only with the car, but also on the bike and/or for walking.
One big annoyance was the fact that the CD’s did not come with a Mac installer! I searched on TomTom’s web site to no avail. Their support pages are very poor to say the least. Anyway, I finally found out, that they have do have a Mac installer.
Pick it up here.
This is the version 1.0.4. TomTom might provide you with something better in the future
I am currently putting the maps onto the PDA (T5). It takes ages to upload the maps. I managed to get Italy on it, but as I am not living in nor currently in Italy it is a bit difficult to test the setup with that map. Now the Alps are hotsyncing, and so far it has taken several hours to hotsync the 185 MB to the PDA . France, Benelux, Germany and Scandinavia is still to come…
