A GPS navigator
is usually a small device that we place on the dashboard of a car or motorbike, even on a bike's handlebar, or simply a gadget that allows us to know the exact coordinates of where we are. Nevertheless, the same functionality on a computer can be equally useful, both for the copilot to have more information, as well as to register our movements directly on the computer
without any need for middlemen. What's more, with the small portable computers that are being used nowadays, thanks to Roadnav
we can save a gadget in the car.
This program allows us to perform exactly the same functions that a TomTom or Garmin GPS device would offer us
, including a view that simulates the driver's point of view and it shows the map in 3D
Furthermore, the interface of Roadnav
is prepared to work day and night
with tones that are different so they aren't irritating. The same interface allows us to download maps from the OpenStreeMap service or load maps in GPX format
, so it shouldn't be difficult at all to get the maps of the area that we may require.
