Check out Microsoft Streets and Trips with GPS. Works great on my truck at work.

KEVBRU,

I want to get a good program for my dell laptop that i can take on my bike or in my car.
I understand how it can work in a cage -- but on the motor? Where do you plan on mounting a laptop computer on the motor?

Can anyone recomend one that works good and doesnt cost an arm or a leg?
You might consider purchasing the Garmin GPS-18 USB Deluxe package

http://www.gpsnow.com/gm18.htm

which includes the excellent GPS-18USB GPS, nROUTE software for using the GPS with the laptop and a full copy of City Navigator NA 8 (DVD) software. This will allow you get familar with the Garmin mapping software -- you will be comfortable switching to the ZUMO on the motor...!

And you'll still have the GPS-18USB, nROUTE and City Navigator NA 8 for the auto and for creating waypoints and routes on the computer and uploading them to either the ZUMO.

WIN - WIN...!

I have a Delorme LT-20 that I used when I got stuck. I could take it out and find out where I was and where I needed to go. Had it about a year.

I have a Zumo coming tuesday so I no longer need it. Make me any reasonable offer for it and it's yours.
