I like the program too. Saved my *** multiple times last summer living in ohio. I think it lacks a LOT of features it should have avg speed, total drive time and similar. But 50 bucks vs the cost of a GPS unit...unbeatable.

I have 2006, one of the few programs I didn't "get"

hah, I bought the first GPS one in 2005 and just keep the GPS and upgrade the software versions. All I have to do is install the hardware driver from the 2005 CD and then install the new software and it doesn't know the difference! I gotta get 2007 soon. But I have a feeling they're gonna figure it out sometime, go back to being ******* microsoft and make the GPS and regular versions different so you can't use the GPS unless you buy a new one every year. Jees I hope they don't do that. But I think I might buy the 2008 GPS reciever. Probably recieves faster. I haven't read up on GPS recievers but I probably should.

Good deal tho on the buy!!! I bought my GPS conbo for $125

hmm, not to scare everyone off, but I just sold a Nuvi 350 to a guy that'* had three of these in a 6 month period. Says they keep breaking if being used in a car/truck

I prefer DeLorme over MS.
DeLorme does automatically recalculate if you go off route, no clicking. I have not done it, but you can set up voice commands with DeLorme. I have not used MS a whole lot, but I think DeLorme has more features. $50 is a good price for the MS though.
