I hope so too. But as long there are no maps on the market, I'll use the eXmod and iGO with nearly world-wide coverage.

The car navigation looks great, but I live in Canada so it won't work for me right away. I should have waited for the Canadian version to come out before I ordered the 710. I am not sure when the 710 was going to come available so I didn't wait. I only picked the 710 because it had more internal memory and the cost was not that much more with my trade in ($40). Thanks for the preview.

If you are getting a 710 you won't need a mod for car navigation.
I've been using my 710 for over a week now and the Magellan navigation has worked perfectly, it usually calculates a route in less than 15 seconds, will recalculate on the fly if you leave the route in a few seconds.
Auto zoom, warns about coming turns at 2, 1, .5 and .1 miles. Pings when the turn is close (300 feet).
Set it for track up and see the streets as they appear in front of you.
The voice is load enough to hear over the radio & talking.
here's a few screen shots;

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Hi all,

I had to change the whole architecture of the mod. It is now only one single executable, which needs to be placed on the SD card.

Everything works fine now. The sattelite aquisition takes about 40sec - one minute, after the usage of the car navigation, but I think this is something we can all live with.

At the moment I am implementing some flexibility, especially on the automatic integration of iGO or other programs and safety checks, especially regarding possible changes in future firmware upgrades.

If anybody wants to support with beta testing, please send me a PM and I will supply a download link.

Hi,

it now works...

..but the Navigation Software iGO8 somehow influences the SirfIII Chipset. After car navigation and going into "Magellan mode" the reciever only has partial GPS conectivity. This can only be fixed with a reset of the Sirf Chipset, which is not an option for a convenient mod.

I am working on a solution, but it will take some time.
