I e-mailed SatMap last week to ask about the Sync software and any future planning software, and (I hope Lewis from Satmap doesn't mind) I thought I'd share his reply with you...

"You can use satsync on a pc that already has active sync installed, but the satsync software will only run side by side with the active 10, no other devices. We most definitely do plan on having a pc based route planner which will be downloadable free of charge from our website, this will give you full access to the whole of GB at 1:50k plus high res Arial photography, we are also in talks with Ordnance survey at the moment to see if they will allow us to but the 1:25k mapping on route planner as well. As a result of the route planner and online maps you will not need to be able to read the map card you have purchase as all the mapping will be online for you to access as and when you like. I hope this answered your question."

I wrote to Satmap because I was concerned that ActiveSync would no longer work on my PC if I also installed the forthcoming SatSync software - this reply puts my mind at ease (I couldn't live without my PDA/Outlook synchronization!)
Also, that PC route-planning software sound potentially brilliant - provided you have a broadband connection - run as a local application on your PC, but accessing the map data FREE over an internet connection - so no need to buy any more maps in other formats. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that OS will grant permission for the 1:25 000 maps to be used in this way...
