    Has anyone used mapping software, such as Aquanet?
    I want to use it mainly for offroad bike routes but also for walking routes as well.
    Don't know off any other makes but theirs does seem quite good.

    There is some competition for Anquet Maps in the form of Memory-Map Navigator. Both basically provide 1:50,000 mapping of mainland GB (inc Scottish islands) based on the OS Landranger series. With MM you have to buy the software separately at £100 (each CD at £25 comes with a viewer only) and has a version that also runs on a Pocket PC. For Full GB coverage it's £250. The AM software comes with each mapping CD at £35 per CD or £130 for half GB coverage.
    Memory Map has full GPS functionality whilst Anquet Maps only has upload to the GPS functionality. Both only support Garmin GPSs. MM allows you to import scanned maps, AM does not. However AM does have one unique function, height data, so a route drawn using AM will include a height profile and will work out timings for the walk using Naismith's Rule.
    Or as an alternative try GPS Utility. A shareware program with load of features and supports almost any GPS, but you do have to supply your own scanned maps.
