      its not horrible. it is just not very complete. I know some of the guys over in linux land are using in there front ends. It just is not nearly as polished as some of the windows offerings. It def is not bad for free though that is for sure. Download it try it and find out how well it works for you

        roadnav hasn't had an update in 3 years. I don't know anyone on the Linux end who uses it.

          ... also keep in mind it uses free map data, and the quality of the map data and routing may not be as good as navigation products based on maps licensed from Navteq.

                Also, use the search function for this forum: "Google Earth" turns up two pages of results. This is the one you may be interested in.

                      The program can download the maps from OpenMaps (you have to create an account), I haven't tried yet!

                            The wiki says it works on OS X. Ther's a page on how to do it. Take a shot.

                            Most Mac folks run GPS under Windows because those solutions are better.
