It’s been a long time since I have used CoPilot that came preinstalled on a Windows mobile device several years ago. I had been using the Windows Mobile platform along with various GPS applications that included TomTom, Destinator, IGO8 and others for nearly a decade that all started with the introduction of the HTC XDA.
Today, we are reviewing the latest navigation software from CoPilot: the Live Premium edition, courtesy of the folks at ALK, the creators of CoPilot.

QSTARZ CR-Q1100P GPS Tracking Recorder - Reviewed

Read more: QSTARZ CR-Q1100P GPS Tracking Recorder - ReviewedOver the years we have been reviewing quite a few GPS units from Qstarz. Often they were of the Bluetooth variety, necessary in the age before every smart phone had a built-in GPS. However, there is a good market for GPS tracking recorders and the CR-Q1100P is touted by Qstarz as the world's first commercial unit of that kind. I am not quite sure if that is correct and much depends on your definition of "commercial", I suppose, but this model has certainly all the features to be a good commercial unit.

Let's go for a drive.

Know which way you are going: taking the Navigon 2410 and 2510 for a ride!

Read more: Know which way you are going: taking the Navigon 2410 and 2510 for a ride!When I was offered the opportunity to review the Navigon 2410/2510 I had mixed feelings about this modern technology. When I was young I had been taught a simple method to find my way. And my intuition has never failed me, otherwise I wouldn't now be sitting at home typing this story! To be honest: often I had to ask someone, look at maps... it's not only intuition that got me home...

After taking these little tools for some thorough test drives, bicycle rides, and walks I am convinced that this new technology can be an excellent addition to my own intuition in finding my way. Especially when driving, it helps me concentrate on the traffic. I don't have the added stress of looking for the right direction... It also saves me money in the gas bill, because it keeps telling me which way to go to reach my destination.

The ease of use, it's size just right, multimode - and despite the glitches I came across - I can recommend you to put this Navigon 2410/2510 on your list when you want to choose a new gps navigation set. It may well turn out to be your choice, because of its value for money.

Read more: miniHomer Key-Chain GPS Position Finder - ReviewedThe Navin miniHomer Key-Chain GPS position finder found its way to my desk promising me that I would never have to worry about where my car was parked, finding my way back to a hotel, and returning to a camping ground again. With claims like that, and with me being one that is far too famous for her own good for getting lost – i thought i should test it in at least two environments.

So how did it fare?

So how does the ProNav PNN-300, which comes in at a hefty AUD 799, fare in the heavyweight league?

Read more: Qref Quick Reference Guide for Garmin GNS 430 - ReviewedAll of today's high tech equipment comes with a user manual and the more complicated a piece of equipment is the thicker the manual.  And the fewer people that will actually read that… As a result most people will not know how to properly work with their equipment --  even if their lives depended on it. And when it comes, for instance, to vital navigational equipment in an aircraft lack of knowledge can be fatal!

Today we are looking at a reference manual that addresses this problem.

Enter Qref, a company that specializes in making high quality reference material for the aviation and maritime sectors.

Today we will look at the Quick Reference for the Garmin GNS 430, arguably the most popular avionics set.

Staying up to speed with the GlobalTop SC-200 Speed Camera Advisor

Written by Martin van Zanten on . Posted in Navigation

Read more: Staying up to speed with the GlobalTop SC-200 Speed Camera AdvisorWhen I heard that I had the opportunity to review this small marvel of electronics, I wondered what would be the use to me. I have to go back a long time to explain my feelings to you on the subject of speed limits... and of course keeping within those limits. It's now some thirty five years ago, that I was trained to become a civil engineer. We had many lectures on road design, and it's like yesterday to me listening to one of the lecturers admonishing us: "When you drive keep within the speed limits: roads are designed to a specific maximum speed. It's for your own safety to stay within those limits!"

That stern warning has been in the back of my mind ever since, so I keep to speed limits. So why would I need an instrument that warns me of speed cameras? It's with a bit of scepticism I plugged it into the cigarette lighter, and took the GlobalTop SC-200 for a road test.

In this review I'll give you a first hand witness account of how I changed my mind, once I had the experience of going through an hour of heavy rush hour traffic in the city of the Hague, in the western part of the Netherlands.
