This is the "killer" feature that I'd pay extra for

Garmin Mobile PC should work great on your HP laptop. It has all the features and a complete set of North America maps.

I don't know the product, but I still have the original GPS receiver for the first version of S&T that had it available, so a newer and better version would be nice to have and as a pensioner, I hate paying :-) so I hope I win

When I go to the Weather tab, There's a line of text saying something along the lines of "Weather isn't available because they're changing providers." Not exact, but that's the idea of what it says.

Hi IK what is centralfuse? Are there add ons that i mite like to add?

Mojowy, Centrafuse is a "front end" software used by some "CarPC" enthusiasts to control frequently used programs, such as navigation, music, etc. Have a look at this Centrafuse thread.

In the old thread if the subject is very relevant. If it's not really close, start a new thread.

For the best response it's always best to use a thread with a subject that is very close or identical to what you want to know. Continue an existing one or start a new one. That way, people with knowledge can spot it easily and jump in to help. In a thread like this one, it will be buried and lost in no time, especially with the contest going on.

There is no software program, including Centrafuse, that can enable touch screen capabilities on a laptop that doesn't already have such a feature. Centrafuse is just an overlay to make it easy to see and select programs the laptop is running. One of these may be GPS navigation software. It is often used with small screen touch screen displays to make selecting programs with a finger easier than using the basic Windows layout. No magic at all and little advantage on a larger screen.

Feel free to pm me any questions about Centrafuse. I've been using it for a year or so now. Also, check their website: Centrafuse | A Whole New Way

If you go to the forums, you can see all the plugins available for it.

Doug,

No information on a new release yet. If anyone hears something I hope they'll post it here.
