    Hey, brazillian too, yes there are maps for Brazil. I've been using Destinator in my PocketPC since 2004, with Brazil map. Recently I downloaded the Brazil 2007 Q2 map that has more than 150 cities, and also the 4Rodas map with all the POIs (points of interest).

    I am using Destinator 6 for PCs in the CarPC.

    But the CarPC is not installed in the car yet (its in my table), so meanwhile I am still using my PocketPC, but with another application, iGo 2006, with brazillian maps too. Its better if you will use GPS on PocketPC (another car, etc...).

    PM me if more info is needed.
