Re: microsoft map

I used that before I got my GPS. I used to plan the trips then print out maps to stick on my RKA tank bag. I liked it.

Re: microsoft map

I find it much more user friendly than Mapsource.

I use S&T to plan out my route. When I'm done, I use the push pin feature to mark all of my waypoints. I then use a piece of freeware titled GPSBabel and convert the file to Mapsource.

Works great!
