I familiar with navigation systems (CoPilot, iGuidance, Sygic, nRoute) but new to S&T
So I downloaded the trail version of S&T 2011.
I quickly built a route using the Route Planner, saved it, started navigation (using the Franson GPSGate simulator) , and received the first spoken direction.
But I noticed that there doesn't seem to be a "route preview" facility. Is there one hiding somewhere? Every system I mentioned above has such a facility.
I then did File->Save and File->Exit.
When I restarted S&T, it went to GPS as I had requested in Tools->Options.
However, it did not resume navigation.
Instead I got the message about using the route planner or get directions before starting navigation.
Is S&T incapable of resuming navigation on a program restart?
If so, this makes S&T useless for my purposes and unlike every nav system I have used.
Could someone tell me what I am missing? I could find nothing in the help under the obvious keywords.
Just for the record, the discussion of the above has been split to two topics:
Is Streets & Trips missing a "Route Preview" facility?
How to resume navigation when Streets & Trips opens?
