Have been using Delorme Streetatlas 6.0. They said I could not use their USB. They sent me a serial gps, had to buy a keyspan converter and their 12v power cord, so I would not have to keep buying AAA batterys. The problem is that Delorme has quit supporting Macs. I am still looking to get something for a friend. So far I have found several sites for USB drivers and receivers by using Google ( mac gps software). My friend hasn't done any thing yet so I can't help you there. You might look at Route 66 map software. I am not sure it is as smooth as this streetatlas is. I tryed to get my son in Mobile to buy the window version of Street Atlas so I could try their USB with those drivers. i will keep this post and if I find out any thing I will let you know.
