Doug, I just joined the list. Though it seems there's not much going on here, this particular thread is exactly what I need. Have you tried using their USB cable in OS 9? Maybe the drivers I'm using would be helpful. I have a G3 Wallstreet Powerbook, running OS 9.2.2, Belkin UBS adapter card and Earthmate receiver with deLorme's serial-to-USB adapter and Street Atlas 6.0, no difficulty. That's a good set-up. Problem is, I've lost the data CD. I still have the install disc. You seem to have the data disc. Is there any way I could persuade you to burn me a copy? I've tried to get one from deLorme and they were not only unhelpful, they were downright arrogant about it - "It's not worth our time to support Mac, we dumped all our Mac files when we updated our servers, etc." They even tossed all their copies of 6.0 in the trash. Please let me know if you can help. I'll pay for any costs involved, including overnight shipping! I'm getting ready for some long-distance travels. Thanks, phil at bluegrasstime.com BTW, I've read some very bad reviews of Route 66, so be warned!!! ******************************************************* John Collins wrote: > Jeff--There is virtually no activity on this list--I don't know that > you will get any info.

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.
