    turning my Macbook into a gps
    I do a lot of long and short distance train travel. Quite often I wonder where the heck am I. So the question is what is the best and or least expensive way to turn my Macbook running 10.6 into a GPS unit.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    There are two applications out there that are considered the better of the lot,
    RouteBuddy Maps for Your World
    MacGPS Pro Mac OS X Navigation Software - Home

    With both you also need to buy maps (These are almost always application specific so forget using MacGPS Pro maps in RouteBuddy) for your region and a compatible USB/Bluetooth GPS unit which are usually listed on the developers website.
