TomTom5 and Mac

No Gravatar

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 Smile
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 Smile 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 Smile. France, Benelux, Germany and Scandinavia is still to come…
