SPV M600 = QTEK S200 so pretty much any software discussed here would do the trick. There are trial versions of PolNav, ZorroGPS or MN|7 so you can try before you buy.

I have got a Locosys BGT-31 for speed sailing on windsurfers. Trouble with shoulder means I have only used to record cycle tracks and some ski runs.
I would like to pair it with my SPV M600 PDA and get some navigation software for the PDA so I can use it as a Sat Nav device.
I have been surfing forums for hours but still no wiser.
Would you be able to give me some advice?

How about the new HTC Touch Pro?

Just the Diamond and Diamond Pro, keep us posted on getting the software via TTH and buying US maps.

I'm sorry it wasn't clear, but I meant TomTom Navigator 6, not 7. I agree V7 would likely be a pirated version. I've clarified my post now.
I'll have to try with TomTom Home again. I haven't been online with it for a while. It would be great news if I can now get Version 7 and new maps. Are you saying that V7 is available for all phones or just the Diamond?

Don't buy $25 TomTom 7 versions on eBay, they can only be pirated versions, the software having never been sold separately unlike TomTom 6. The good news is that with the latest version of TomTom HOME (downloadable from the TomTom site) you now get offered the option to download the latest v7 software and you ca then buy the maps on the TomTom site. It works in Europe for sure.
CoPilot also have a Diamond version and Navigon are offering a free trial, but only with European maps possibly.

I use TomTom Navigator on my AT&T Tilt/8925 (HTC TyTN) and I like it. Unfortunately they seem to have discontinued support for generic Windows Mobile devices. I thought there was a Version 7 for the HTC Diamond but perhaps it is only through a specific carrier. I did read recently that you can find TomTom Navigator 6 on eBay for about $25.00 so that would be a cheap interim solution until something better comes along. The maps are only a couple of years old so should be usable for a while.TomTom doesn't require an SD card and you can download specific regions so you don't take up all the memory of the phone.

I bought an HTC Diamond a few months ago and figured I should make use of the built in GPS chip. Might as well since I have my phone with me always, and don't want to have to carry an extra GPS device around. I am looking for software that doesn't require an extra SD card because my Diamond doesn't have an SD card slot.
I've been looking around the web and found there's quite a few softwares out there that will run on my phone (Windows Mobile Professional). I found that some softwares offer free trials, which I found to be quite useful because you can never tell how well something works from screenshots or even videos. Plus, I can make sure it functions properly on my phone before I pull out my wallet.
I tried out this trial by 3DVU www.3dvu.com called navi2go. Their screen shots look pretty cool with 3D terrain and airphoto, so I downloaded their trial to my phone. However, I found the trial to be quite limited. It only allows me to go along a preset route. Other features such as address/poi search are locked out, and I couldn't fly around to other places. The graphics look great, but I can't actually test it as a gps navigation system unless I pay for a subscription.
Another one I came across is Urban Horizon by Novlum www.novlummobile.com. They offer a 14-day trial. So, I loaded this on my phone and found it was a fully functional trial. Although this navi doesn't have airphoto like the other one, it has landmark building models, building footprints and 3D terrain. The data streams from the server but I can also choose to download it to my phone. This way I don't have to keep using my dataplan. The UI is appealing and quite intuitive and the software runs fast and smooth on my device.
Anyone have any other suggestions of software I should try? Thanks!

What are the current recommendations for navigation software to run on a PDA/smartphone ?
I'm looking for something that:
- Has accurate maps (preferably regular updates) and quick+optimal route calculations in Canada & USA
- Has TTS
- Good utilization of screen real estate (upcoming devices will have 3"-4" WVGA)
By the way, does any nav software support traffic updates on devices with an FM receiver?

WTF, I've been a faithful iGuidance user since beta 1.0 and they can stuff themselves for locking to a freaking card. I too use the largest cards possible (currently 16G) and don't and won't be swapping cards in the field. Guess I'll stick with v4 till I can find a replacement, MFs!

I just bought Garmin Mobile XT very recently and one of the nice things for me is that it is compatible with files that I already had for my Garmin StreetPilot 2730 automobile unit. I like to visit http://www.poi-factory.com/ and I already had a number of POI files on my computers. I also have MapSource with Favorites and was a able to download those to my phone with Garmin Mobile XT very quickly. POI Factory has POI files in either .CSV or .GPX formats. OCN8 looks very nice, also. I miss not having TTS on Garmin Mobile XT, but perhaps they will offer it in a future edition. I must say that the Garmin Online feature is also handy. I am not sure if others have something similar to that or not.

I would second to what gpspassion suggested in another tread, that they (iGuidance) should consider putting new releases/updates on DVD but requiring activations online.. It may not be as "anti-pirating" as locking to a stock SD, but it will attract many customers who have either bigger SDs or internal drives. Would IG consider this approach more seriously while most of heavy players/competitors are locking their releases to stock SDs?

I have to agree with you BK. If I were in your shoes I'd hope they'd be willing to work with me! I'm not really happy with the price to upgrade since I purchased just a year ago...

Actually, I have asked them about sending in my 16GB card and they won't handle it. Most of the newer hardware today will support cards over 8gb so should owners of those devices be reduced to using a smaller sdcard with the IGuidance program on it just to please people whose hardware can't handle it?
Also - notice that it's either a 4Gig or 8Gig card, is that figure before the program is preloaded or after. IGuidance 4.0.2 reduced an 8Gb card down to about 6 when I got done adding it.
I'm not trying to start any flame wars or anything since I will admit IGuidance is a great program and the customer service is top notch but there should be an option available for people to be able to either send in a 16gb card or offer the program on 4,8 or 16gb with price points to match. I'd pay more for IGuidance 2009 on 16gb card.

Have you inquired of Inav if they would accomodate you? I'm sure many of their customers are like me and don't have hardware that will address more than 4gb(nor do most currently have the need). Why should they add $30+ to the cost for everyone for 16gb just to please you?
