Nav N Go’s iGo – Light years ahead of competition

 iGO_My_way_8_Cockpit_n I first started using Nav N Go’s iGo software when it came packaged with the Mio c310s. The software runs on Windows mobile OS. The graphics were clean and clear. The interface simple and yet highly customizable. There were many websites dedicated to hacking the iGo software. The list of features that I liked are endless (smart zoom, quick overview of route, easy customization of route parameters, etc.) I loved the software very much.

Unfortunately, this year, not many of the low-end devices came packaged with the iGo 8. This new version is vastly improved (even better graphics, more options, 3D land-marks, etc) and I wish I could get my hands on a device that was cheap (under $200 or at least one to review). With none available and my c310 aging out, this year I begrudgingly, settled on a Garmin Nuvi 260.

But if you have the $ then check out this list of devices that run the iGo 8. The iGo8 will definitely not disappoint you.
