Can anyone recommend a 2005 route planner?

I currently use AutoRoute 98 (AR98) - and am considering upgrading to the 21st Century but looking at the poor user reviews for AutoRoute 2005 (AR 2005)on Amazon's site now wonder if there's something better.

I understand that (AR 2005) doesn't include the M6 toll road and other recent developments as MS can't agree to Ordnance Survey's charges for the data.

AR 98 shows the Newbury by-pass but won't use it and if I include a motorway service station [Watford Gap] as a way point (stop) the recommended route diverts from the motorway to local roads then comes back on from the other direction.

So if someone knows of a good current application to recommend I'd be pleased to hear of it.

Also the AA and RAC websites have good route planners.

Why would someone what to buy a route planner?

Or to work a GPS system on their PDA to give satnav?

But wouldn't a decent laptop or mobile phone provide internet access anyway?

But I thought topgear was always saying that satnavs don't work.

Top Gear have got it wrong. My Satnav works perfectly.
