GPS Solutions For Mac OS X

Route 2004 Mac CD - Route USA 2004

Finally, after a whole lot of half- and sorta- solutions, there's a single solution for people who want to use a GPS to do road mapping and tracking.

See, for at least the last 6 months that I've been checking, there had been no Mac OS X solution per se for doing road mapping and tracking for a GPS, without building your own maps. Several solutions were out there -- using Virtual PC and MS Streets & Maps, using a ton of really nice, but someone incomplete, shareware solutions, using GPSy, which was Mac OS 9 only and didn't work with some of the newer GPSs, etc. You get the idea.

Well, about a month ago, National Geographic updated TOPO! for mac, so you can get good topographical maps, and now Route 66 came out with the above product.

Now all I need is a GPS. :)
