Darren I like your idea. Makes sense. That said it would probaly turn into a self-verication system for users who pay in the hope that the map providers might keep their side of the bargain.

That's working on the basis that maps are streamed in real-time (yes I did use that phrase so I asked for this!) more of a locally cached map updated when connection is ready. The ideal setup ...

I tested this theory out recently. I've also been a PDA (TT navigator 6) user migrating to a PND (TT720). I recently went back to the one device concept by trying Orange Maps (and the trial of the c ...
