While I've been using the free Garmin MapSource software for awhile, and it works great, MapPoint has some extra features like linking to excel that could be really handy. However, I have a couple features I can't figure out how to do in MapPoint that are critical to what I do - any help?
You can see in the image on the left, Garmin MapSource has a pane on the left showing all waypoints with corresponding info - you can select one or several items, and it highlights them on the map and displays the waypoint name. MapSource has a similar pane, but I couldn't find a pane that lists all pushpins with corresponding data attached to that pin.
2nd, when you select waypoints in Garmin MapSource, either by clicking items in the waypoint pane or creating a selection directly on the map, whatever items you select it automatically displays the waypoint names for all selected items - again, very intuitive. If you zoom in close enough to a certain level, it will automatically show all names at that point as well.
Can I get MapPoint 2011 to do these things? Or does the FREE Garmin MapSource have a leg up over Microsoft on this stuff?
