Maybe I should highlight it, that for lot of traveling, nothing beats laptop based software/antenna. The screen shows the maps in 3 different scales, in 3 different windows, you can insert stops and vias by clicking touchpad and easy scrolling with touchpad or mouse.
Too many times GPS was leading me via residential streets with 10 turns, when the highway going around was only 100 feet farther, so I like to check the route on the map before accepting. Also on long trip I can see not only 2000 miles till destination, but 487 miles to the hotel I am planning to stay tonight. Can't do that on any other small screen.
And again, we are talking $19 expense added to your laptop.
