From: David Cantrell Date: 19:28 on 17 Oct 2003 Subject: Mapping Hate One of the most important applications for me on my Palm is Tomtom Citymaps. For pretty much any town of any consequence in the whole of western Europe, it helps me find pubs and other important places. It works really well and I don't have any complaints about the current version at all. But I do have a big complaint about the next version. You see, the current version doesn't work on Palm OS 5 devices, like the shiny shiny Tungstens which magpie-me so desperately wants. Palm no longer sell Palm OS 4 devices. Tomtom have no plans to release an updated version of their software, and so I hate them. I've looked around for an alternative map application. There are none. Garmin have released a combined Palm and GPS device, which looks very nice indeed. And they have European maps! Hooray! Oh, but what's this red text on their webshite? Maps of Europe are only for sale in the US. So let me get this straight. They'll sell me maps of irrelevant places thousands of miles away, but won't sell me maps of London or Paris. So I hate them too. Suggestions for less hateful suppliers off-list please.
