    Speaking as someone who has used Delorme software for a few years now, and think it far better than most of the other LAPTOP-oriented offerings.....

    Yeah, it is useless on a small screen.
    Mine is 8.4" and this is still far too small.
    A 10 inch MIGHT be ok.

    Routing engine and all the other stuff does work quite well, and is not all that difficult while being fairly full of features.
    But for UMPC/mobile/carpc use with a small screen- skip it.

    I'm using 2008 and was thinking about upgrading to 2009. The image in the first pic looks more GPS-ie to me.

    I like the 2008, and on my 7" screen it's very usable. I hacked the registry to lose the 2 side menus and the top bars. So all that shows is the bottom strip with turns and directions and stuff, and even that can be minimzed.

    Even got it to embed into RR.

    Curious? Does the Delorme 2009 require an activation license key like IGuidance?

    That's all i needed to hear! Long as I can transfer it from my two machines without nags and lockout modes it will suffice. I can hack that registry with no problem for the menu displays. Ain't like I can"t use another registry hack to add to all the others .

    Thanks brotha blk

    I see you can download aerial imagery for map overlays? Have you tried this?
    Looks very cool...

    Hi there... I have 2009... use it on a t-mobile wave with the bt-40. Thinking of a dell mini 9 for the car - could you tell me how you changed the side menus and top bars? Forum posting link or otherwise?

    Thanks in advance
