Route Software for Macs

Does anyone know of any routing software similar to Streets from MS and the Garmin software?

Iím a Mac user also. We are kind of left out in the cold when it comes to mapping programs. My current solution is to run Streets and Trips (Windoze version) on my Mac (Intel Core processor) via Boot Camp and Vista. Probably not the answer you were looking for.

Have you looked at Maps.google.com?

Don't know if that is what you are asking for but it does a decent job of directions.

Thanks. I have the duo processor with parallel loaded with vista. I will give it a shot as I already have Streets and Maps.

I just hope that I can download the routes to my garmin. If not, I will just do my routing on my windoze (love that) and download them to the garmin as I know that works - I just prefer to work in the Mac format.

Thanks again.

Boot camp does not help those of us with powerpc macs.

There is routebuddy, but I have never used it.
