    Making MapPoint talk / Driver-friendly MP?

    I'm using MapPoint with a GPS receiver in a custom car computer application. I frequently use it to help me get to unfamiliar places. A few issues though...

    ..First, the map doesn't rotate. This can be a little irritating when I don't want to pay all that much attention to my screen and just make a "right or left" decision. Instead, I have to think of my heading and how that's relative to the current map view and figure out what's what. I'd like to find a way to make the map rotate with my direction.

    ..Second, is there a way to make it talk? (i.e. following a route.. "Turn Left on to blah..")

    I'd also like to do this for really cheap / free. Any input appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Dan
