    why roll your own? Are you a programming student doing this as a project or something?

    But popular GPS programs would be iGuidance, Mappoint, Destinator, and the new Garmin program.

    Anything specific you are looking for in a gps program?

    I was actually running into this problem in the development of my frontend. I would think it would be QUITE the task to develop gps software, even if you could use already-made mappacks, so integrating another program into the frontend may be the wiser choice.

    All good GPS programs use Navteq maps. Those are not free, therefore every program has a cost.

    You could always try to put in GoogleEarth with a cache program.
