    Question Navtech maps for Canada

    Hey guys, I've been using mapquest.com to find canadian address' and so far I'm extremely impressed. All the other gps software I've seen has no where near the detail these maps offer. I'm just wondering what, if any, software I could get that would include these Canadian maps with the detail I've seen off mapquest.com. Thanks.

    I think Microsoft Streets and Trips uses NavTech maps, but the drawbacks are that it doesn't have voice navigation and it doesn't actively change your route (ie. if you make a wrong turn it doesn't change the route so that you can now still reach your destination taking the road that you are now on).

    I purchased Microsoft Map Point 2004 and I am using it with AGPS (for voice directions): http://www.techgt.com/agps/default.htm

    Great Canadian' coverage of major cities (rural is another story), the maps are a mix of Navtech and another company (don't recall who).
