    Yeah, it's not the best but I don't think the map is that tiny. Here's a screenshot:

    i'll post a screengrab of it at 800x480 when I get to my desktop, but it works fine. Just turn off the dock.

    Cool thanks, I'd appreciate it. I've attached the pic they had in the magazine that sparked my question/concern (not sure what resolution it's at). But you can see that the map looks smaller in proportion than the one Bugbyte posted. My other beef is that it's the only gps/nav software for the mac and it only 3 mice.

    Here's what they said:

    Route USA 2004 3.6
    Rating:
    Pros: Extensive, detailed maps; works well with a GPS unit; loaded with reference points for route planning; estimates travel time and costs.
    Cons: Sluggish performance; dosen't always choose the best routes; somewhat unintuitive interface; must load all data to your hard drive.

    Well just because it's the only for the Mac doesn't mean they should score it higher. Although from what they are saying in the Cons I don't know how they justify 3 mice due to the fact they are basically describing almost all GPS software out there. There are very few that are developed enough to pick great routes, and that doesn't have "somewhat unintuitive interface".

    Here's a quick screengrab at a bit larger than 800x480. You will probably wind up with something a bit smaller. I changed the toolbar to small icons for this. Looks pretty usable.

    I didn't post the entire article, but he did have other issues.

    Thanks thecapitalizt, that screenshot helps.
