    Newbie...Question on MP and Best compatible navigation system

    My customers work in the service industy and I would like to help them improve their efficiency by using MP to route their stops and then download the routes to a "car navigator" ie Magellen, Garmin etc. and was wondering 1)which car nav systems were compatible with MP, (able to down load from excell) and 2) which were relativley easy to work with

    You can use MapPoint as a car Navigator via a laptop.. I'm not sure there is any good solution for making a car navigator and MapPoint talk to each other though you can certainly import/export points.

    I know these guys are experts at MapPoint and navigation, you might see what they recommend --

    Thanks, I will check them out and see if they can help...not sure I could talk my customers into buying each of their techs a laptop. My customers have their client data base in MP already... and we do not want to duplicate work and have to re-enter data into something like Mapsource
