    Here is a link to my page that has the Streets and Trips refresh rate hack link. It says it only works with S&T 2001, 2002, and 2003. Can't verify if it works on 2004 or not as I only have 2003.

    streets and trips is pretty horrible and was designed as a desktop program for reference use, NOT as a navigation software although it has a lot of those type of features. I say routis is a pretty good program. Street Atlas is good and all but it has significant system requirements and it is definitely not touch screen friendly

    So, would you have to say Routis is the best you have seen as for touch screen compatability? You are right, Street Atlas is dismal at best... I have not tried Routis yet.

    I would say Routis is decent for touch screens. There's a few threads about Routis. The POI database isn't the best, but the update is supposed to fix that. Also the maps don't have geographical data (bodies of water, forests, etc.) but once again, the update coming out soon is supposed to.

    If you look for screen shots of Routis, you'll see the buttons are fairly easy to use with a touchscreen and pretty much everything will work without a mouse or keyboard.

    Used trips this weekend

    I had trips 2004, routis, and destinator running all at the same time for a trip to orlando. They all worked good. Love the POIs of trips 2004, the navigation of routis and the voice and POIs of destinator. Used GPSgate to run all three. Was easy to with routis while having trips running side by side so I can see POIs.
