Garmin Mobile PC & Computer Speed

What is the minimum computer speed (MHZ) that Garmin Mobile PC requires to run reasonably?
I am using a Samsung Q1U 800Mhz & currently run MS Streets & Trips OK (has it's draw backs), but would like to run Garmin Mobile PC.

Thanks

I have a Asus R2h UMPC usin a Celeron 900 and a Benq S6 MID equipped with an 800MHz Atom. Both run Mobile PC just fine. Start up is good but shut down locks the computer for a couple of seconds. Other than that, I haven't seen any issues. I do find that Mobile PC wastes screen real estate at 800x480. S&T is worse though.

I see you've got your desk up to 3.3kph!! Not bad for an old guy.

You should see what it can do with the 10x!

Thanks Gets.

I agree about MS Streets & Trips on the real-estate issue. I have also tried Delorme Street Atlas but found that there maps were useless in Alberta, although it had some good features.

Thanks again.
