User Comments
Testing Magellan DirectRoute in Calgary
"The software installation was easy and straightforward, with the only annoyance being the need to have the data CD in the computer for runtime usage regardless of the installation option chosen. This is an attempt to eliminate illegal copies of the software product. Additional licensing issues include the notice that this product is to be used supporting a single GPS unit. Set up and use of the software on the GPS device is straightforward as well. The routes chosen are sometimes mystifying especially if you already have knowledge of the area being navigated. The route is apparently based on distances, road speeds and a little magic. The ability to quickly reroute using a double 'GOTO' makes the product very useful. I generally create a route and ignore the driving directions until I am out of familiar territory then I resort to the rerouting feature to map directions from my current position to my selected destination. This approach is necessary because the street destination function only allows a start and an end point with no additional staging points to help encourage routing the way you prefer. There are additional work arounds to this problem such as creating driving directions from stored waypoint routes; so you could store multiple waypoint routes to create directions for each leg of the trip."

COMPATIBILITY: Works with Meridian Color, Meridian Platinum, Meridian Gold, Meridian Marine, SporTrak Color, SporTrak Pro, SporTrak Pro Marine, eXplorist 400, eXplorist 500, eXplorist 600, eXplorist XL. Direct Route is not supported by Magellan on the SporTrak Map or basic Meridian because the memory needed is not sufficient. A GPS firmware upgrade may be required for compatibility. The latest upgrade can be downloaded from Magellan's website. Click here to visit Magellan's Firmware Upgrade page. [Note: As a result of Magellan's ongoing firmware update program, some updates on the Magellan site are more recent than those on the GPS Firmware Upgrade CD supplied with MapSend Direct Route; the most recent upgrade should be used for optimal compatibility.]
