    Question Is there a way to open coordinates in google maps from igo or show sattelite image ?

    Hi. Is there any way to open coordinates from igo directly without having to type them in google maps.
    Or some way to show a sattelite image next to the coordinates ?
    For example when I search for a Truck Stop i need to see if that stop has place for parking the truck, because not all of them have,
    some are not suitable for making the rest pause. And i can't do this for 20 places in a row.

    to show satellite image, you can use raster maps
    only available for some cities

    Hi,
    I don't know about IGO GPS being able or not, But when I use my GPS it contains the similar waypoints as my PC version and I export a KML file then double click on that and Google earth opens up and there you go, I have a very full google map.
    So maybe there may be and export function when PC connected.

    I have an old Garmin Etrex and I can import from it direct into Oziexplorer on the PC, have been using the Etrex "not original have replace a few times" for 17Yrs now, before google earth came out.
    But some IGO Expert may be able to answer you question M8.
    There around here some where.

    Hello..... @irennn

    Yes you can open directly coordinates in iGO...

    Menu -> New Route -> Coordinates

    little attention needed about: (west - east and north - south) depending on the destination... and you must have maps also...

    raster maps is hard to find for all countries - places...
    so you need to build own..... but for good resolution it is more bigger than *.fbl of the same map...

    i think best way is google maps or google earth with 3G 4G connection...
    but again you can have only one view of the place... because it's not in real time...
    the screen you will see in google map or google earth is an image (foto) updated before some months or year..

    for example: i can see on "street view" my old car in the same place.... thats sell two years ago....
