Comes with a usb plug in gps locator, and through that, the program tells you where you are and where you have to go to get to the diesired location.

My question is, is there a mac equivilant application, as i am going on a roadtrip and myself and lady have no sense of direction or any idea where we are going/how to get there.

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated as i am leaving next week.

Thanks in advance!

Google Earth is probably your closest bet. I am not sure if they have GPS support for Mac, and you will have to buy the sensor, but that is probably your best bet.

I have used that, and thought of it, but havent got around to checking.
Is it possible to download a specific area, so i can search it on the computer without being connected to the internet. If so, how big is it?
Also, what is this sensor you are talking about?
