... AND EYE-IN-THE-SKY
Map'n'Go from DeLorme (800 452-5931), a more traditional trip planner, might not get you door-to-door but has snazzy features. The $39 2.0 version includes the American Automobile Assn.'s database of 57,000 restaurants and lodging places. Its best feature: an ability to produce detailed strip maps of a route that look particularly good when printed on a color inkjet. The program can work with a Global Positioning System satellite receiver to track your car's position on a map shown on a laptop.
