When my SmartST Desktop is connected to my ICN 530, the FIND CITY command (under the MAP command) is grayed out. Is there a way to see what the FIND CITY command will do? I've go the latest software and patch.

Another question: is there an easy way to import a POI file, to say Google Earth or another mapping program, to show me the individual POIs? Everytime I try it the programs connect all the POI with lines/routes, just showing me a mess.

'Find City' depends on you having a amap CD in the drive, I think. You can import POIs into Autoroute and view them individually.

Well you were right about needing a CD in the drive to use Find City. Funny though, I thought the feature might let me DO something other than put an icon on a city.

As for Autoroute, it appears that is just for the UK, and I'm in the US. Oh well. THanks

No, the 'Find City' just shows you which CD the city is on, I think. As you're in the US, swap 'Autoroute' for ' Streets and Trips'. That is the US equivalent.

Streets and Trips looks very interesting, thanks. But at $129.00 USD, that's a bit much. I see older versions at $20, though. You would think there was an online app that I could paste my PO longitude/latitude data into and see plot points, without connecting them.
