Why PathAway on the iQue?

Postby Scott » Wed May 11, 2005 10:55 pm

I have a Garmin iQue 3600, and it comes standard with software and maps. What benefits does PathAway have over the standard Garmin offering?
The iQue comes with maps and software targeted mainly towards driving and points of interest. While the maps that come with the iQue are top notch, they do not cover all purposes. For example, it does not come with topo maps or nautical maps. Some 3rd party application may provide less expensive or better maps in these areas and in parts of the world not covered by Garmin.

One of the key points of Pathway is to allow you to use your own maps. It doesn't matter whether you've scanned paper maps, downloaded maps off the internet, or have digital maps on CD-ROM. PathAway provides tools to convert maps and calibrate them to the proper geographical coordinates. In fact, PathAway has a conversion SDK for PC Mapping applications to seamlessly convert to PathAway format from within the PC app. Touratech-QV is an example of this implementation.

PathAway also provides more In-Hand database management of your personal points, routes and recorded track logs. There are also tools for converting data to and from PathAway format. So the software is open to PC apps to further utilize the captured location data.

In addition some users may prefer a particular feature or user interface of PathAway not present in the Garmin offering. I encourage you to try PathAway for yourself.

We believe PathAway is an ideal complement for the Garmin iQue. With the Garmin software, maps, and points of interest, you have a great driving and POI companion. With PathAway, you can do everything else, manage and capture your own points and tracks. Use any PC software to convert and analyze your data.

I'd like some links to maps online I could use with that, before I'd purchase.
2012 now and I still want to make the iQue 3600 a useful gps. Since Garmin doesn't want to support this device anymore, nor bring out new maps, this seems like a solution.

Thanks,
from Belgium ;)
