I have a Navman PiN 570 and have found out that Navman are not providing map upgrades.

Is possible therefore to install and run Tom Tom mapping on the Navman PiN 570.

Can anyone advise if this is possible and if the GPS system works better than the standard Navman software

This is a standard PPC, so any PPC SOFTWARE will work fine. Many people happily run TomTom on their Navman PIN's

With the 570 there have been a number of posts re getting the GPS to go. Have a search for posts and answers on this, but the key points are

1) The serial Port is on the PIN570 9600Baud, many GPS serial ports are 4800.

2) The PIN 570 has a software setting to turn the GPS off and on. Some people have reported a bug where it reports the GPS is on when it's off.
The workaround is to turn it off, then back on, if you suspect a problem.

3) Install the (free) Winfast Navigator software, it's invaluable if the navigator software is not picking up the GPS for any reason.
