My copy arrived today - looks liek Alk are quick with shipping which is good. The installation went very well. Co Pilot 6 has to be uninstalled first and then the device given a soft rest.

After doing that the installation went without a hitch.

I like the changes to the user interface a lot. It makes navigation through the system easier.

I haven't taken it on a trip yet, however one of the new options is to 'play' back a trip you plan to make and this seems to imply that the Text to speech option is no longer there, with WAV files as the only option. Thus road numbers/names don't appear to be spoken any longer which is a shame. However I'll update this if I find thats different on a live trip.

Despite my earlier concerns about running version 7 on a Compaq branded iPAQ 3970 runnign Windows CE 4.2 it works just fine. Windows CE 4.2 is in fact Windows Mobile 2003 which ALK do support. Quite WHY microsft have to use differing names/versions of the same software is a mystery to me.

First impressions are good, but I will miss the extra info from text to speech if it's been taken out.
