Using Netbook w/ Topology Map when wheeling

Got tired of using small screen of iPaq and all the work involved in importing topo maps, so I got me a Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook and a Minimount. The Minimount held well on Moab trails, to include 7 Mile Rim, Hell's Revenge, Fins n Things, Long Canyon, etc.

Looks good. What sort of software are you running?

I have a hp netbook. I am running windows 7, Garmin Mobile PC and ibicus topo (for canada only). It works but I wish there were a few more features. Stuff like... there is no route tracing.
