Thumbs up Mapquest - NICE

I've got the Garmin 2820, was just playing around with Mapquest and discovered how easy it is to plan a route and then download it to the 2820. It was amazingly easier that Mapsourse. Maybe I'm missing something, but in the time it takes to just log on the Mapsours, plan a route with all of it's idiosyncrasies, I planned a simple route and BAM, it was done and quickly downloaded. I was amazed at how simple it is to plan, MAKE QUICK CHANGES and then down load it.

I first had to download a small file to my 2820, but it was VERY user friendly and for me simple. Just curious if anyone else is using Mapquest instead of Mapquest.

Re: Mapquest - NICE

I haven't done a entire route, but I've down loaded POI from Google Maps. Yes it does seem easier.
