I already have a PDA and so i decided to buy this software with the GPS receiver. I have only used it for a few outings, but so far it hasn't missed a beat. The map is very clear with very clear directions. It also keeps up with the pace of the car relatively well, so the screen isn't 50yards or so behind the cars location.

It has some good features, such as you can program your home address, so you can simply click 'navigate to home' no matter where you are. There is also a favourites list, so comment destinations can be easily pulled up without having to re-enter the postcode. Also, in the bottom right of the screen it gives the estimated time of arrival, how many more miles is left of the journey, and how long the remainder of the journey will take. Also, and by far the best feature, if you take a wrong turn, instead of just stubbornly telling you this, the software will recalculate a new route from your current location within seconds.

Additional features include looking at your journey by text or by map before beginning, and you can select the shortest or quickest route, with stop offs along the way, and you can select roads to avoid.

If you buy this software i suggest that you run it on a PDA or a decent phone, as a slow processor can mess up the map, and it often thinks you have taken a wrong turning when you havent.
