Default RoadNav Free GPS Mapping Software

So, I had a Delphi NAV200 for about a week and really liked the ability to type in an address and just go. Unfortunatly it didn't allow for Geocahcing. So, I Sold it. I then Baught a Magallen Explorist 210 and have been looking for Free mapping software that I could use on my laptop with my 210. After about a week of searching, I found this site It's called RoadNav (hence the Title of the thread). I downloaded it and have been impressed with it. I have yet to get the 210 in the mail, but I can't wait to see how it does with onstreet navigation. It uses Free map sources that can be downloaded to a laptop and then used indpendently of the internet. I'm currently working on Downloading all the Counties of Michigan on to my Laptop.
Not only is this just like the software of my previous Nav unit, But I can also close out of Roadnav and then bring up another GPS utility that can map off road tracks, waypoints, and all that. So...I'm happy. I'll let you know how it works when I get the 210 in the mail. It also helps that I have an extra (old) laptop lying around waiting for a purpose. What do you guys think?
