    May I suggest the links are checked for any referer ID's and try and have links to a number of sources if possible, rather than just one.

    I think one link is good enough to go to a page that has detailed information for the software. Preferably the manufacturers site. Then you can compare features and such. If you then decide on one, you can easily google different stores that carry the software and shop around.

    The other option is to have multiple links for each one, and then try to decide what links to include or not include...

    For instance, if you like I can give you probably 100 links where you can buy Map Point, Streets & Trips or iGuidance easily

    I think a chart to compare GPS programs easily would be extremely handy. Such as listing features that each has, such as Text to speech, 3D View, Voice Activated ect ect... (GPS Programs across the top, and features down the left, and X's in the columns for features for each one.

    Just not sure how to do that in the forums, as some sort of table would be needed.

    Here are a couple that were overlooked, and probably for good reason, as they are not really touch screen friendly, though Map Point is supported at the heart of RR, and has many skins to make it much more usable in the car.

    MapPoint
    Product Home Page: http://www.microsoft.com/mappoint/pr...6/default.mspx

    Embedding Details:
    GPS Path:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Mappoint\Mappoint.exe
    GPS Window Name: Mappoint

    ;Map - Microsoft Streets & Trips"

    Streets & Trips

    Product Home Page: http://www.microsoft.com/streets/Pro...s.aspx?pid=004

    Embedding Details:
    GPS Path:C:\Program Files\Microsoft Streets and Trips\Streets.exe
    GPS Window Name: Map - Microsoft Streets & Trips
    NOTE: Some version use the window title of: (The AND spelled out) Map - Microsoft Streets and Trips
    Front End of Choice: Ride Runner (Is there anything else??? ) & Powered by the DFX5.1 Skin Available in the Mobile App Mart
