WebDT 366 and navigation

Postby iPanini » Sat Jul 10, 2010 12:22 pm

Hi all,

Let me introduce first:
I ended up buying a couple of WebDT 366 as I'm (quite a fervent) user of LinuxMCE. For this platform, a ubuntu based image is available to use the WebDT 366 as a sort of 'golden' remote control. Very nice actually.
I'm also having a sight problem, this means I'm generally looking for 'big' screens.
This lead me to thinking about using the WebDT 366 as an in-car navigation device. This would give me more screen real estate compared to my Tungsten T3 running TomTom or my wife's TomTom Go 630.

Now my question:
Taking into account the fact that TomTom Go is running on ARM using Linux, and that TT seems to be able to run on Win CE devices, can anyone give me some advise as to what is the best way to run navigation software on WebDT 366.

I'm open to ALL suggestions, so even if you have linux navigation running, please let me know.

Thanks for your help!

I ran iGuidance 3.0 on mine for a while, before I tanked it trying to load on some other windows based carputer software. I forget the name offhand, but my device refused to boot, even in safe mode. I wiped it and loaded puppy linux.

The problem with iGuidance 3.0 is it is now somewhat out of date, although it's still kick ass if you are only navigating the major roads. The screen is awesome. I used a Microsoft USB gps that came with Microsoft Streets and Trips.

This dude http://www.timekiller.org/carpc/index.php has a sweet setup. I've followed his site for a couple of years, but never did get around to making a carputer. My car is approaching end of life, and I am now waiting until I get a different one and then make one for my car.

He used Linux, and ran crossoveroffice and created a 'bottle' and ran iGuidance in the bottle. It looked pretty awesome.

At the very least, this might give you some ideas for your device.

Automapa 5.3 is perfect for Europe. Uses gps-mouse. Runs from external CF, probably USB also (?) Very fast, reliable, large buttons, multilang.

puppy linux with Tango GPS works and lets you use cache google road and sat maps or open map.
no auto routing but fast stable lots of detail..
