MapFactor Navigator FREE 10 has been published by MapFactor, a company that provides professional software for car and truck navigation. The free version is identical to commercial version, but it is using maps converted from openstreetmap.org. This application is an intuitive door to door voice navigation
solution for PC, Laptop, CarPC, Netbook or Windows Mobile/CE device
with seamless OSM vector maps.
Setup Utility works without problem, in some cases download stops at 100%, which could be also problem under windows.
Installation of PC Navigator is without problem.
PC Navigator works fine if you create link for GPS (in our case of USB GPS (which mounts on /dev/ttyACMO) it was necessary to create link: ~/.wine/dosdevices$ ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 com1, tested on Ubuntu 10.04)
What does not
Semitransparent icons during navigation (maneuver direction and distance) are not visible with true color display. (I see that there is the same report for version 8 - for 16bit color resolution it should work.)
What was not tested
Setup Utility features for installation to PDA/PND devices.
