    Need help to access web maps

    I down loaded MapQuest (Driving Directions and Maps): http://www.freewarepalm.com/internetpqa/mapquest.shtml. The program ran great until the actual map was accessed. Unfortunately no map appeared but only 'garbage' on the screen.

    Does anyone run a similar program for the 7135?

    Thanks,

    I use Mapopolis, which can be downloaded from http://www.mapopolis.com. The program is free. It's the maps that cost money. How much depends on the level of detail you choose.

    I have the MapQuest pqa, and it works on my 7135. I believe I did d/l it from freewarepalm. I have my prefs set to: Graphics: Fastest; Accept Cookies checked; History 400KB. Sysprefs are: Cookie jar: 50 KB; Type Ahead checked.

    I looked at that and, FWIW, I liked Quo Vadis better. It's the reverse: the program costs money, but the maps are free. I think the scrolling is way better. They're a bit more anal about copy protection and tie the software the the hardware ID rather than just the HoySync user name, but they will move the ID if asked.

    The maps are hierarchical: you can have state, county, and city maps and they nest. Also, if you have maps that are adjacent, when you are scolling and you cross a city boundary, you automatically go into the adjacent map file seamlessly.

    You can also try Vindigo. It has a trial mode. You select the areas and download the content to the 7135 when you sync. No live web-connection is necessary to view the maps.

    I'm kinda ticked off that there's not many of these map-type programs (except for mapquest) for Canadian cities, and in particular Montreal for me...*sigh*

    Without getting into a huge argument. Blame your government.

    The reason there are so many choices in mapping software in the US is that the US government gives away vector street map data to anyone who asks. It is not incredibly accurate (it is from the US Census, not the USGS, although you can get free Topographic data from them too). Some of the electronic map companies then enhance this data from their own field surveys, but others just package it directly so their only cost is developing the user interface.

    All of the map data sources in Canada have some cost associated with them, so you will never get free software.
