iGuidance GPS on a laptop is cool... 
Friday, May 5, 2006, 03:58 AM - General Info, Upgrades
Yep, I admit it, I'm hooked. For the last few years I've use Microsoft Streets and trips with my USB GPS adapter ($60 off ebay) on my work laptop. It's saved my bacon several times by getting me from A to B and sometimes even to F when I'm in a hurry and don't know where I'm going.

Tell you what though, I installed iGuidance and it makes life so much easier...on the road.

Streets (called Autoroute in the Ukay excelled at providing written instructions on how to get there from here. Also with times/miles/rest stops it made it easy to find an address anywhere and route to it.

iGuidance doesn't do routing or print directions or maps or nothing, it just tells you where to go, step by step, just like an Urtz AlwaysLost if you've ever rented a car with one. Only better.

Okay, so this is the deal. Get a laptop with a USB input. Get a USB GPS unit on a cable, preferably long enough to get from your laptop on the passenger side to the top of the dash at the very front (or out the window to the roof, they're magnetic as well) and get iGuidance. Fire it up, it'll find your GPS and in a minute or so will show you where you are on a full 3d display (or 2d map if you prefer) Type in the destination (kinda like Neverklutz, you can put in characters from the screen on a tablet or touchscreen) and this cute sounding babe in the laptop tells you where to go. Simple as that, and free forever once you've bought the gear....

Still use my Streets sometimes to get a printout or find out how many miles/how long it's going to take me, but this thing rocks on the road.

These should be mandatory for all sales reps, delivery drivers and service personnel. Save you lots of gas money and calls every year, not to mention being late for appointments you thought were somewhere else. And all those close calls when you had to go across four lanes to get to an exit on the other side of the road...

Now if only I can find a cure for cellphones attached to blondeheads in dodgy caravans I'd be made....
