    Yeah,
    That looks like a sweet deal if you live in the US.
    Useless to canadians though.
    No maps.

    Cool

    If anyone is interested in Microsoft Streets and Trips 2001, you will find information about it on both www.microsoft.com and www.microsoft.ca (canada). However, the US site has a mail-in rebate for $20USD/$30CDN available to US and Canadian Citizens!

    I just ordered the software package from www.chapters.ca who has the software package on sale for $44.00 CDN. Taking into account the $30.00 CDN I will get back, that works out to a really sweet price (I'll let you do the math). Not to mention, my conscience won't suffer a blow having actually purchased a ligit piece of software (hehe).
    Chapters charges approximately $5.00 xpresspost in Canada (1-3 day delivery). They also ship to the USA.

    All I need to do now is order my Delorme GPS unit and warm up my soldering iron.

    If you have any questions, email me.

    Ya, wow. I just got MS Streets and Trips 2001 and I was amazed at how good the Canadian content is. I can just type in an address (like mine =) ) and boom your in... or a school or anything.

    Definately recommended. Especially for around 20 bux after a $30 rebate. (cad)

    The Delorme products have ZERO Canadian coverage...which is kind of funny when planning a trip to Alaska.

    With the Delorme Tripmate, after you do those tweaks to convert it to a generic NMEA (or whatever) receiver are you able to upload to the receiver?

    I know there is a lot of software out there that you can just scan maps and then input them into the GPS receiver. Are you able to do this?

    No,
    This is a one-way reciever. It only sends information out. It doesn't have a screen or anything so it would be pointless to upload anything to it.

    Its a vegetable if its not connected to a PC.
    Thats why its so cheap.

    Update on purchasing MS Streets and Trips from www.chapters.ca

    CHAPTERS SUCKS! DO not order from them whatever you do. My order was confirmed shipped on the 24th of November. I should have received it within 1-2 days. NOTHING.

    I tried calling them for 4 days. Only busy signals. I know it is X-mas but come on. Finally got them tonight...Here was their answer , "Must have gotten lost in the mail...sorry"

    Ok, fine, send me another one...answer "Sorry, we do not carry the product anymore, we'll reimburse your credit card"

    Gee Thanks. E-commerce...not in Canada eH...

    I never have this problem ordering stuff in the USA...Hey Canada, wake up on client service...

    My Tripmate ($50.00) from Delorme has already arrived from the USA having gone via USPS, then Canadian Customs, then Canada Post and to my door. I ordered it the same day as MS Streets and Trips... That says something about US service.

    To the Americans...I Salute YOU!

    Yes it does.
    You have to buy a $20 USD cable from Delorme though. Its on their site.
