Driving Directions on the Zaurus SL-5500
« on: December 26, 2003, 06:41:33 am »
Hello,
    Does anyone know of a program that will generate a map and driving directions for the Zaurus? zRoadmap is good, but it won\'t creat driving directions, are there any other applications?
Thanks.

I recenty received a Magellen Meridian Gold GPS for Christmas. It comes with 2 Software Packages MapSend Direct RouteI\'ve been working on how to get the maps into the Zaurus and also how to get the Zaurus to interact with the GPS (seems to be a cabling connection issue between 2).

http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/search.php?q...q=GPS&x=13&y=13

The above site is the search for GPS for the Zaurus and lists 15 GPS packages (some links don\'t work).

I checked out the above link from Mapquest, intersting but I don\'t know if it is workable. I\'ll check it out...You need to have a wireless connection to the internet for your Zaurus...

Quick FYI!

http://maps.nationalgeographic.com/topo/pocket.cfm

This has just been released, Jan. 2004, as of now compatible with Pocket PC and Palm OS. You also need to have the State version of the software (providing you live in the U.S.)

 Not much information regarding the format the files are saved in...Main State series files saved as *.tpo & *.tpg formats. At this time I\'m not sure what file format the Z will be able to read or if they can be converted to a jpeg file with notes....will work on it....

Anyone know if there\'s any software like the www.tomtom.com navigation software (currently for the Ipaq) available for the Zaurus?

I have a C760, I live in England and I\'d love some software like this or like MS AutoRoute for my Z

PS. I\'m pretty sure if a Ipaq with Bluetooth can talk to a TomTom Bluetooth GPS Receiver, a Zaurus should be able to as well. When I had the opportunity to scan for my friends TomTom it picked it up, but obviously I didn\'t have the software to use it.
