I have used Tranmission for years. Has been a great piece of software. But now finding that it is less reliable than before, and slower. I have used version 1.42, the new bet 4 and beta 5. I am finding that speed is right down and that for some torrents, it just stalls. Restarting Transmission gets it going again (and hundreds of seeders/peers magically reappear) but, basically, I have lost the ability to just leave it going.

So I tried uTorrent. I prefer the Transmission GUI and features, but uTorrent is steadily working on the torrents that Transmission stalled on. And speed seems comparable.

Hope the next stable version of Transmission restores reliability.

Have used Pando for a number of years. Has become increasingly unreliable and troublesome. Giving up on it, despite being a current Pro paying member. Have had many exchanges with Peter in support over the years, who does a fine job. Shame about the programme.

I have recently complained about the lack of a V2 software for the Mac to use with my TomTom Go 720. I was therefore pleased to see this appear.

While others have encountered problems, I have to report that the Mac version appears now to be quasi on par with the Windows version at least for a TomTom Go 720.

I have been using the Windows version until now under VMware, which worked well enough. On my quick revire, the Mac version now does all that the Windows one including (a) working with the latest maps, (2) working for Mapshare and (3) ability to operate my TomTom Go 720 from the computer.

The last functionality does not apparently work for another poster here. Perhaps he has a different TomTom machine to me. I should say that using this function in the Mac version seems possibly a little buggier than the Windows version. I got error messages before getting it to work and I have the impression that clicking on things sometimes does not react properly.

That said, all up, a good upgrade for me. I have run a backup and hope not to have to fire up VMWare to update my TomTom in the future (but keeping my Windows backup, just in case)

Trying to play a 2.7GB avi video. VLC and Quicktime would not do it, nor would MPEG Streamclip. XinePlayer played it no problem. Great work. How about a universal binary?
