    How to show current position symbol?

    I am a nub who just started programming using the MP2006 ocx, and have been successful at some of the more fundamental operations. For this, I'm using Delphi, but code in VB and C++ as well.

    When I set a location (using the ActiveMap.Location), I would have hoped that I could place a symbol (car icon, even just a dot) at that location, and then update that position as I submit new locations.

    A bit of insight about what I'm doing. I have a video file that is synchronized with a GPS coordinate data file, and would like to display the current position as defined by that data (essentially a moving representation of a vehicle) during playback of the video file.

    One other question: Is there a way to avoid displaying the directions grid when calculating a route?

    Thanks for any help!
