Hi all,

Does anyone know if there is a GPS navigation map format that is common to a few brands of navigation programs ??

By this, I mean; are there maps that can be used in one system (say Garmin) that can be used in (Tomtom) ??

or

If I have Navman running on my PDA, can I use Destinator maps on it.

Hope you understand question.

Cheers :)

The makers make it incompatible to protect their market.
Basically the thing that differentiates is the delivery system (the software).
The geography has to be the same.
They would not want youto buy their rival's product (GPS maps of various countries)and use in their system.
