Is there a mac equivalent to streets and trips?

the only thing I know of is route 66 but it seems awfully slow/old compared to streets a trips...

Good question. However, what exactly do these apps do? If you give a detailed description, this may help prompt someone's memory.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

It is a bit annoying for people to ask about specific Windows software titles rather the task they want to accomplish on their Macs. Route 66 and Streets and Maps are both GPS navigation applications. To the OP, you may find several GPS titles for MacOS X here.

Would Google Earth fit the bill?

Ah, yes, Mr Me, but what if you only want mapping, not GPS? Do any of those products contain just a searchable, customizable map? Delorme used to support macs, but no longer does. Their product is excellent, much better than the MS product.

k2nv -- you would have to be on the internet to use Google Earth or Google Maps, what is needed is a software product

AFAIK, Route 66 is the only product available. And yes.... it does suck.

maybe someone can help me..

about a while ago, back when i had pc, i bought a street and tips w/ GPS, and i was wondering if i can use USB GPS that came with that software on my iBook G4, but i obviosly need some other maps software for mac.. so this is what i'm looking..

also, i've tryed google earth it seems that it'd work fine, the only thing is you need to have a internet access, so i dont see how i can use it on the road, plus it doesn't support PHAROS chipset that used by Microsoft GPS .
