Can GPS DO????

  Madpad_001 16:57 20 Jan 2006

I am a keen rambler and was wandering if any of the GPS units out there on sale will do the following:

1) I know that some GPS units (garmin etrex) show your route on a map, but can you transfer that route to computer?

2) Then once on PC, put the map with route on into a power piont Display?

3) If yes to the above questions,then what model/Make do I buy?

Thanks for your help in advance

You can certainly do what you suggest with AutoRoute Express click here

Does autoRoute express do only roads or does it also do x country?

If you take a look at some of the (free ) GPS software here it might help.
Some of the software you can place your own maps / ariel photos etc ....

AutoRoute 2006 provides detailed street-level maps and address find capability for a number of countries across Western Europe. These include:
• Austria
• Belgium
• Denmark
• Finland (south-central only)
• Germany
• Greece (Athens only)
• Luxembourg
• Netherlands
• Norway
• Sweden
• Switzerland
• United Kingdom (England, Scotland, and Wales)
• Urban areas of France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and United Kingdom (Northern Ireland).

In addition, AutoRoute 2006 also provides some street-level coverage, but does not support address find for Channel Islands, Czech Republic, Ireland, Isle of Man, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Slovakia, and Vatican City.

On the links I gave I thought GPS Dash might be of interest as if you visit the web site it (seems) you can go ' off road ' from the look & description of the maps

GPSdash2 is delivered with no maps beside a world map but the software is especially designed to make it easy for you to import and use nearly any map you can think of - also satellite photos.
