    Re: Maps for the world !

    1. Mappoint 2008 really needs to cover more of the world. It does not even cover Europe (despite the name) Europe stretches to the Urals and it is a major limitation to using it in business not to have the route maps stretching all the way.
    2. At the same time extension into Australia, Asia, South America and at least South Africa would give a real value. If the detailed maps don't exist then high level ones covering the main trunk roads would be a start (like Greece is anyway).
    3. Activitating Mappoint for GPS in Mappoint 2006 did not make sense to me. I don't think people are buying MP as a journey monitoring tool - there are way better solutions available. Mappoint 2008 would ideally be seen as part of the Office suite; the equivalent of Excel for geography.
