4.0 out of 5 stars Using Route Planner in the UK

1.0 out of 5 stars No Good If Using Palm OS5
Tried to load this on my Tungsten T The system crashed and I have not been able to get it to work. I emailed the company and they say they do not support Palm OS5 and have no plans to do so in the near future. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE A PALM USING OS5

4.0 out of 5 stars Using Route Planner in the UK, 2 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: TomTom Europe Route Planner (CD-ROM)
Having experienced route planning software for the PC (e.g. AutoRoute), TomTom's Europe Route Planner shares many features with its more established rivals.
Planning a route is a simple process, you enter the starting point and destination and the planning software calculates the quickest and shortest routes for you. These can be displayed as a visual map (with zoom capabilities) and as a set of written instructions.
Link your PDA to a GPS system and you have a satellite navigation system (but no voice instructions)! This works extremely well.
Why haven't I given it top marks? Well, I've found a major shortfall in that motorway junctions aren't identified. Instead of 'Exit J10, taking the A23 towards Anytown' (or whatever), you get (something like) 'after 5 miles exit North towards Anytown on the A23'. When you're navigating across the motorways around North London where there are many exits signposted to 'Anytown' this proves incredibly difficult!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tom Tom City Maps, 12 Nov 2002
This review is from: TomTom Europe Route Planner (CD-ROM)
I downloaded the trial version from the website first. It took about 30 seconds before I decided to buy the full one - its really that good.
Maps are broken into small chunks, and you decide which ones you want to store on the PDA i.e. you get to control the trade-off between PDA memory use and number of maps available. Very, very useful.
Like autoroute, you can put custom marks on the map e.g. your favourite pub !
You get most of the EU/EEC on the CD, so just copy the ones you need. I found it great on holiday in Brugges - enter the name of the street you're on and then display it on the map. If you're at an intersection, the second input box is a drop-down list of only the roads that cross the first one you selected - incredibly easy to use. You can plan routes and there is GPS support too, however I have not used that.
You don't get a manual, but you don't need it. Pocket PC, Palm and EPOC versions are all on the one CD.
Well worth the money - download the trial version if you don't believe me. Its full functionality except for GPS support, but only a very limited number of maps (4 cities).
