TomTom 7 / iGo 8 Where's the receiver?
Right, not mentioning the dark side of the force but let's say that suddenly I found in my laptop's harddrive the TomTom Navigator 7 and the iGo 8 for PPC.
I just love TomTom... it's so full of little things to customize here and there, but the interface is ugly as hell (compared to my Navman S50 3D satnav UI) and it's just working fabulous. I have one issue solved but still one little doubt. The issue was that it doesn't rotate the screen, there's no option in the program to do that but... thanks to Schaps and his amazing Advanced Config I re-enabled screen rotating. My question is - and I didn't find it anywhere - where is the GPS hardware in it? It's vital to know that if I want to rotate the screen I have to make sure I'm keeping the receiver on the top. Does anyone know whether it's on the left-hand side (HTC logo) or the right-hand side (videocall camera).
Now, about the iGo which seems to have another quite cute interface, everytime I load it, it will come up with a message saying no language files found... no idea what's happening.
For those who are questioning why I want so much to use my phone as a satnav is because Navman tried to charge me £70 for the Western European maps when I only need Iberia, UK and Ireland (UK & IE came with it). Bloody mercenaries!
I have changed.
