    I loaded up Mapopolis. Great free program. I think it might be sucking down a lot of batter power. It seems like a noticable change in the indicator level after using the program for a while (3-5minutes). The level indicator does come back up a little, but it seems my half life batteries went fast in week when it took a month to get them to half. Does anyone think its the map software, or does battery life drop after half use?

    Just wanted to put in another good word for Mapopolis. I sent them an email (filled out their survery on their site) and they wrote back within 24 hours and mentioned that they are working on a new version that will:

    1) Allow you to search for items by matching any part of the word (right now, it only matches the beginning of a word).

    2) inlude the addition of "bookmarks" allowing you to save your own items.

    Pretty cool!

    Mapopolis is a great freebie, but I still prefer StreetFinder most of the time because of a couple of features:
    1) Links to your address book
    2) Has street numbers
    3) Better interface

    But I like Mapopolis because the maps are much smaller, and the county divisions work just fine for me here in the Bay Area. I'd like to see them add a Select/Zoom like StreetFinder, which lets you draw a selection box and then zooms to that area.

    I asked them about the street numbers and they said that they felt that would simply make the database too large. I suggested that perhaps they just do "rough" addresses (ie the "600 block" etc...)

    Maybe if they get enough requests (hint, hint)
