    Hi Guys and Gals,

    I have had my IVD for a few days and can't believe I waited this long to get one of these incredible machines. I have decided I never want to ask for directions again. I want to download a good map program, that will provide city maps as well as road maps. I am not looking for gps, just something that will give me directions if I type in the address I am at, and the address I am traveling to. I would also like for it to pinpoint were I am at if I am lost, say if I type in a cross street.

    Does program exist? Thanks for your help.

    Check out MapBlast. Using AvantGo software you can do exactly what you want. See http://www.mapblast.com/mblast/index.mb

    Hope that helps.

    Try Quo Vadis by Marcosoft at http://www.marcosoft.com/quovadis/default.stm I like it. No need to connect to internet for maps, but you must have the ones installed for the area you'll be in. Also no need to use a GPS. Try the demo and see if its what your looking for. Reference this thread also http://discussion.visorcentral.com/F...ML/000161.html

    My vote is for Map Blast - It seems to me that the directions I have received from mapblast have been more accurate and logical then some of the others ( ie. mapngo, mapquest, etc) I also like the integration into the handheld and the return directions feature. Not sure if it is compatible with the new GPS card for the visor - does anyone know ??

    do a search at http://www.palmcentral.com for "Handmap". It's a program that lets you download selective city maps. You can check out the website to see a list of what they have.

    this may be a dumb question for you guys, but:

    i set up Mapblast on my AvantGo and then went to the mapblast website. I drew up a map and at the bottom it has a form field where it asks:

    Save AvantGo subscription as:

    So i typed in a name and hit save. A couple of windows popped up on the screen and then it said the 'files were transfered successfully' or something to that effect.

    where do i go from there??? i sync'd my visor and there's nothing on it with the map....

    signed:
    confused.

    Anyone found a good, free or cheap *browsable* map of Los Angeles?

    The HandMap free version is so coarse as to be worthless (freeways only) and the three chunks into which the city is divided cost $16 each! (I could get an entire Thomas Bros. map book for just $16!)

    If I'm reading it correctly, the MapBlast product is just a static, non-browsable map you configure and download once.

    Does anyone anywhere have the REAL THING?

    Hey Hoser, I have the same questions with Mapblast....from what I gather, you get a map only when you punch in directions to and from...not very useful when you're out on the road and want directions.

    And the Handmaps are expensive...I'm still looking for a good map of LA for a good price (read FREE!). Even those Quovadis maps are expensive $65!

    The only good thing about my former WinCE device was Pocketstreets. A full street map of LA searchable, and you could put little pins on areas of interest...and it only cost like $20. We need something like this!

    I love Street Finder Deluxe 2000.

    (Tried the deLorme product-Street Atlas but did not like that one-had to have an add-on pack to load more than one map at a time.)

    yes.... they are also offering $20 rebate now.. $30 is not a bad deal at all.
