    Navison with Windows Live

    How do you get Navison to work with Windows Live Beta? My Navison works ok so far, but no abilty to set a destination address that I can find so far.... so I'd love to use the assisted GPS with Windows Live!

    Anybody tried Mapquest w/GPS

    This looks like an easy way to simply get a map of where I am.
    I don't need the voice activated turn by turn directions.

    GPS Mapping

    Are you talking about using real GPS or aGPS? Using a real GPS receiver, any of the online map applications should work (Google Maps, Windows Live, etc.). Using the aGPS in the Q, I don't know what will work.

    Navizon is a work in progress, and it is far from accurate. What they want people to do is to use their gps with navizon, which will help to make their application more accurate by reporting your actual position, and the relative distance to their servers (which I assume is measured by ping times). So if enough people do this, some day navizon may be accurate enough to use as a very basic positioning system.

    It isn't very accurate in Pittsburgh. I work in Shadyside, and it is telling me I am in Gibsonia, which is about 15 miles to the north of my actual location.
