Default Mapping software for a netbook

Just curious as to what folks use out there. Mainly DeLorme vs. Microsoft. I have a small TomTom that is ok but want something a bit more robust for trip planning and on the road use. I am usually the one navigating as my DW likes to drive.

Default Re: Mapping software for a netbook

I like the Delorme and update it every year. They usually send me a discount offer in email. There Topo USA topographical software also works with the GPS but the old laptop I dedicate to GPS is to slow for that. I am using an IBM X32 laptop and the small 12" screen is huge compared to the GPS units. I built a small shelf on top of the dog box in my RT 190P and attach the laptop with Velcro so I can move it back and forth to my SUV.

Sorry I misread netbook for notebook... I would still suggest the Delorme. I have the same issue with my X32 of no CD drive so I just map it to the drive in my desktop and load the software in from there. As long as you have a USB port, the GPS unit should work.

Picked up Street Atlas 2010 with the LT-40 puck today. I did use their software years ago so I am pretty used to it.

That should work good for you. Register it with Delorme and they will email you discount offers for when you upgrade to 2011.
