Route66 software DVD and updates

Ok, so the software is dire. Actually dire doesnt even begin to explain it.

Ive got the Route66 Sync software running, and it can see I have the UK maps unlocked.

Now I have a problem however. First, is that there is absoloutly no way to check if theres any updates to the maps. And it more or less has to be done by this software, as the version on the 6110 navigator is different from other route66 products. You cannot buy generic route66 maps from their store.

Next problem, sort of the same, how do you update (or check for any updates) to the actual route66 software on the phone? Or is that part of a firmware update?

Next problem - how on earth do you buy anything from the sync manager??

Ive tried double clicking on things, dragging (nothing drags though), looked in all the menus, nothing. I cant even buy safety cameras, as I cannot get anything into the cart.

Route 66 on 6110

Agree with most of your comments - sort of - but the speed cams are a doddle to download. Whether you'd want to or not is a different matter....5,000 cameras (UK) plays the PGPSW portfolio of 17,000. Like the maps, you also don't know whether or not they've been updated, regardless of what you set the update interval to be.

Hey, it's great to have satnav on a phone, with all the limitations of R66 on the 6110, but this package could have been sooooooo much better, maybe even a real alternative to TT Route recalc is pretty quick, tho'
