    Pocket PC and Laptop GPS Software

    Are there any GPS software packages that work with both Pocket PCs and Laptops? Right now I using my laptop with Mappoint 2004 which works fine for now. I was going to buy the Copilot 7 but I might get myself a PDA in the near future. I just would like to use the same software package for both my laptop and PDA.


    Thanks in Advance

    I have a Delorme USB Earthmate, Delou's website says it doesn't work with Routis 2004. I know that some guys have gotten this to work but I just want to make sure before I buy.

    I bought a serial cable for my USB Earthmate from Delorme and it works perfectly. It's not free, but it did solve my problem.

    I'm using Teletype GPS. This software works on certain PDA's and laptops. There site is "www.teletype.com/pages/gps.html" They also offer a software developers kit. It's working well for me at the time.

    Hmmmm... a little expensive. $139.00 plus $95.00 just for the US Street maps?

    I bought mine in 2002. It came with a USB GPS mouse and the software with US maps, I paid 195.75 then. I still use this over StreetFinder, although I have both loaded on the system
