Hi,

Any of you have experiemce of this as I am thinking of buying the DVD.

Is the GPS data accurate?

Now I already know this is a daft question - but seeing as it's offline does it display any kind of map info for the site, as this usually uses Google maps which I am sure cannat be used on the DVD?

Thanks in advance

On my disk (now 3 years old) t's virtually like navigating the site when you go to 'Recherchez une aire'.

The DVD version does not display the Google map, but the GPS data has been fine when I have used it. (It is the same as the website, so if that is wrong, the DVD will be too.) I bought the DVD last July so it may have changed a bit since then. I have no plans for buying an update at the moment.

Below I have put images for info for the same Aire. Pic 1 is from the DVD and pic 2 is from the website (n.b. the pictures and detail are missing from the foot of the website pic).

To make the DVD easier to access, I copied the relevant files to the hard drive of my MacBook, so I don't have to use the DVD - that is now my archive copy. By going to the CC Infos folder I created and clicking Index.htm it launches the browser just as if you were on-line. From the DVD you can also copy a POI file to the computer and upload it into a SatNav. Then you have the maps readily at hand without having to get on-line for Google Maps.

I think the CC Infos system is a great system and a tribute to the hard work of Bruno, the owner.

Edit: I have just checked and it says the DVD is updated every January and July - I may as well wait until the new one comes out.

My French translation is not good at all. But it looks as though there is now a preloaded dongle as well as the DVD. It may be of interest to those travelling with a netbook without CD/DVD drive. A bit pricey at €16.50. though.

Seems to be the same price.

The USB flash drive has residual value after it goes out of date but the DVD has none.
No, the USB key is priced at €16.50 for 'étranger' (see link below) I guess that is quite fair as he has to pay more for them than discs.

On the point of ease of use and lack of CD/DVD drive whilst on the move, I would strongly recommend copying the files from USB / DVD to the hard disk of the computer. Apart from retaining the purchased copy as an archive, the CC Infos system works much faster from the hard drive than it does from the DVD. I have attached a screen shot of the folder / sub-folders showing what I copied onto the hard drive. You might not need to copy so much, but this works fine for me. As mentioned before, just click index.htm to launch the system.

As is the DVD or is there something wrong with my link?

Humble apologies. He has put the price up since I bought a copy. Sorry, I did not bother to check the price of the DVD.

:oops:

No apologies needed, Philip.

Just wanted to be sure as it seems to me that the 2GB flash drive is better value as presumably it can be 'cleaned off' when the data is out of date and the USB drive used for something else.
