    Hi jting69

    That's pretty amazing not to have a clue what MapPoint is and have 9 posts on this forum. Here's the most basic link, and you can get a free trial version.

    Microsoft MapPoint Home

    You can download a 60-day trial - it's huge but it's free and you can't go wrong with that. I think Microsoft made a good decision to put it out in the open in the Microsoft Download Center where you don't even need to register.

    Check it out: Download details: Microsoft MapPoint 2006 North American Maps

    No - the closest competitor is probably DeLorme's XMap/GIS products or maybe ESRI's BusinessMap. The closest software product is probably actually Microsoft's own Streets & Trips / AutoRoute except that you can't program those.
