Hi Techman, and welcome to the forums. How do you like the new PC Navigator 10? Have you used a previous version? Any important improvements? What are the specs of your CarPC? In the video I notice you are using the Microsoft's USB GPS-500 from AutoRoute.
TECHMAN
Hi, I was using PC Navigator 8 in the past. The biggest improvement on PC Navigator 10 was point selection option, save time going through the menu or opening the menu on the bottom right.

Second was the TMC has been improved giving you an option auto-route or on-off. Apart from that, it's just the same as nav-8, nav-9, just some new add on.

When you say "point selection option", do you mean you can now click or tap a point on the map, and then select it as your destination? This seems like a must feature. Was this feature not included in earlier versions?
TECHMAN
Yes
Marvin Hlavac
That's a good improvement indeed. Quite often I use that feature in other software, too. In some situations, that may be the only way (or the fastest way) of entering a point of destination into the program.

Great looking set-up, Techman.

Looking at the website for the head unit (Lilliput 7" In-Dash Motorized Touchscreen GL701-NP/C/T), there are some unflattering user comments. I presume your experience has been better.

Any reason not to use a UMPC with a built-in GPS receiver rather than all that gear down-stream from the head unit?

(revision 1) was a mess, they didn't install any ground loop in the system, or any manual to over come the issues. To run the device you need a clean 12v (regulator) and ground loop for the audio and aerial.

(revision 2) has overcome the issues and they made the screen brighter from 180 nits to 250 nits, but still have a slight problem with sun glare.

The new Lilliput screen will have anti-glare and also led backlight 400 nits.

I had mine since May 2008 when revision 2 came out, no problem.
