Will Streets & Trips work with the built-in GPS receiver in my netbook?
I downloaded the huge trial version of MS Streets & Trips and before actually installing it I would like to make sure of the following:

1) Would this software work with the inner GPS receiver of my Toshiba NB200-122 netbook?
2) I understand that more than 30 European countries are covered. Is Turkey included?

Many thanks in advance for any comments.

Streets & Trips does not include any European countries. The European version of S&T is called Autoroute. Turkey is not included: Get The Most From AutoRoute

The best way to check if a specific GPS receiver works with Autoroute is to download the 60-day trial and see. Try AutoRoute for Free

It should. If the receiver records at 4800 bps, you should be alright. AutoRoute works with other built-in GPSs.
Many thanks for the info Taoyue and SpadesFlush. I'll give Autoroute a try.

Mertol, welcome to the forums. If AutoRoute (or any other mapping software) is unable to communicate with the built-in GPS receiver, try Gpsgate software. It usually helps in these situations.
Many thanks Marvin.

No, Autoroute does not work with the internal GPS. I'll try GPS gate. I just hope it covers Turkey.

Oh I see. It's an application enabling the use of the internal GPS. I thought it was another GPS navigation program. Anyway, it works well.

Many thanks again.

You mean that using gpsgate, you are able to use autoroute now correctly?
It seems it will but I haven't tried it yet. The Autoroute has huge installation files and Turkey is not covered. And my netbook is tiny with a weak processor (single core 1.66 GH). The HDD is 160 GB. I'm concerned that the NB will slow down. Still considering if it's worth it.
Mr Moonlight,

Out of curiosity I reinstalled Autoroute. This time it found the internal GPS without using GPSGate and working wonderfully. If only Turkey were covered, I would definitely purchase MS Autoroute 2010.
