Why Completely FREE Software?

This site was born in May 1996 from frustration – frustration that many of the so-called ‘free software’ sites were not offering freeware but shareware, time-limited, or demo software which cost money to use or are not really functional. Only the download was ‘free’.

Even when genuinely free software was offered (usually mixed with shareware), many times there was no indication of its quality, download size, or even which of the listed programs were shareware and which were freeware.

The CFS site is designed to cater to those requirements – good quality, genuinely free software (freeware) which has been checked and rated – programs I use and ones which you will want to use too. While descriptions are brief, there is usually much more information in the CFS Program Review and on the program’s homepage (where the link will usually take you).

For more information about why this site was created, and about a pirate computer club which started my freeware collecting, please check out Confessions Of A Software Pirate.

Mio C520T Satellite Navigator

The wide screened Mio C520T Satellite Navigator, promises to give accurate guidance on road, with some of the latest technologies built into it. Finding your way through the city, and reaching your destination is made easy with this portable co-pilot.

The handheld allows you to type in the post code of the location you want to reach and guides you along the way, with audio and visual signals. With the TMC feature, that comes integrated in its cradle, you can navigate around traffic jams and other obstructions, and reach your destination faster. A unique feature that the navigator offers, is its split screen, that allows you to watch a small section on the side of the screen, apart from the main navigation view. You can choose to view your next four manoeuvres or local Points of Interest or route/timing data or speed camera locations in this side view. Attending phone calls while driving is made easier as well, with the bluetooth hands-free technology. This allows linking of a blue tooth enabled mobile phone to the navigator, which switches from navigation mode to phone mode. Also, deceive speed cameras while driving, with the prior warning about their locations, given by the navigator. This service comes for free for a year after purchase. A good set of Points of Interest have been built into the device as well, which makes it easy to locate petrol bunks, cash machines, parking lots, hotels and more. The powerful SiRFstar III GPS receiver along with the MioMap v3.3 software, are employed by the device, to do a good job of picking up signals from the satellite, holding them, even amidst the city or countryside and doing necessary calculations for route guidance.

Apart from navigation, a built-in SD/MMC memory card slot, lets you listen to music, or view your pictures from an SD card as well. A USB 2.0 port is available too, to transfer data to and from a PC. Mio C520T GPS’s 1GB ROM holds Tele Atlas maps of 22 countries, which include Great Britain, Ireland and other west European countries. Multi-lingual instructions are available too, to help you with the operations of the device. The touch sensitive, 4.3” colour transflective LCD wide screen, makes viewing and operating the device very easy. The screen resolution offered is 480 x 272 pixels.

Display wise, the Mio C520T navigator, definitely seems to have made a big leap ahead. However, certain external controls like volume and mute buttons that were present in the predecessor models, have not been included here. But on the whole, the light, handy and accurate, Mio C520T Global Positioning System, might really excite the adventure spirits in you and surely make you want to “Explore More”.
