Review: Garmin Mobile PC

I was wrong about the Show Map feature. I just hadn't waited long enough for it to read the information on the device. It's there now.

Ah yes. With Basecamp you will learn patience, Grasshopper.

I was able to test it by moving the shortcut for CNNANT 2011.1 so BaseCamp could not see it on the computer. I had to reconnect the Nuvi but BaseCamp did show the detailed map from it. You learn something almost useful every day.

Too bad it can't send to Mobile PC as well.

Thanks Marvin,

Someplace much earlier in this thread there was mention of a free trial, but like I said I couldn't find it on Garmins website. Your reply clears things up.

Terry, so you think I could use Streets & Trips to plan a trip and export it out to a gpx. Then use Mapsource to import it into Mobile PC? If that's correct, I would only need to buy Garmin Mobile PC. I may just try it.

thanks, jerry

I tried it with a route I already had in S&T 2010. I exported to a GPX file and opened that in MapSource with no map. I then sent the route to Mobile PC and checked under Tools-Manage My Data-Routes and there it was. Of course, Mobile PC will recalculate the route so it may not look exactly as the S&T original but that is a common situation.

Thanks Terry,

That gets me one step closer to making a decision. Jerry

Does anyone know when Garmin Mobile PC will have lane assistance picture?
Thanks

Garmin never lets out any information about future releases of Mobile PC. Not even when, or whether, there will be a new version.

It doesn't surprise me at all, especially after the fact that, what, 1 year after the update it still crashes and no one in Garmin tech support can give any answers (or even acknowledge the problem).

I stopped using GMPC the day I put CoPilot 8 on my laptop.

That is too bad. Thank you for the notification.

Not only is it discontinued, they've shut down the activation servers as well. . . so you cannot activate a legitimate copy even with the activation key.

I have 6 copies (work trucks use it). I'm furious. One of our laptops lost a HD so it got a fresh Windows install. Went to load up GMPC and a pop-up appears saying "unable to reach Garmin servers". Call to tech support and they said "sorry, we've shut down the activation servers a while back. Nothing we can do."

Anyone know of a GMPC crack? I find it absolutely disgusting I can no longer install software I legitimately paid for.
