    My wife and I will be taking a bit of a road trip from Arizona over to Missouri at the end of the week and I intend to invest in some Map software so that we can view routes and get directions from my Powerbook while we drive.

    Before I started to do this on my own I wanted to see if any of you have been in a similar situation and have already bought software that you are happy with.

    Suggestions based on personal experience are welcome.

    I haven't had any personal experiences with anything like this, but I found this website which might be useful. http://www.gpsy.com/

    Two things I can think of...

    1) Mapquest / Yahoo Maps / Google Maps at Wifi hot spots.

    2) Google Earth at Wifi hotspots.

    I think asking locals is better. They know more.

    i used route 66 route 2004 on a roadtrip from ma to fl. that plus a tripnav usb gps and my old ibook, and we were set. It was pretty cool. Realtime updates, helped find the highway a few times on pit stops, it also has a library of hotels, motels, airports, restaurants, tons of stuff. It is also good for planning trips. I'd recommend it.
