I am looking for a reliable, yet affordable program that will allow me to geocode from excel files containing customer names and addresses. I want to load them to my GPS so I can quickly and easily find customers in my vicinity, and use as a tool to find new customers. Any help you pros can provide would be great. I've tried a couple of free services on the web, and though they appear to work well, about half the time I end up in a field, or a neighborhood. Not at a customer's facility.

Welcome to the forum! I think MapPoint 2010 will work quite nicely. I would recommend to download the trial of MapPoint 2010. You can import your address list using the Import Data Wizard and then Export to a GPX file - which ought to be able to be imported easily into your GPS device.

Let us know how it goes and if you have any specific questions!

Thanks,
Eric
