    Hi,
    We have to use a windows based laptop in our vehicles, and would like to also use the laptop for routing instead of purchasing and mounting another device. Ideally we're looking for GPS software with the following features:
    1 - Can use without cellular service. A GPS antenna is fine.
    2 - Can upload destination points. We may have 200 or more points, so manually entering them isn't an option. XML, CSV, or KML is fine.
    3 - Ideally it would be great if we can either delete a point after we've visited it, or better yet just change the color. This will be an easy way to recognize where we've already visited.
    4 - Voice navigation. This is probably standard, but I wanted to list it just in case.

    Are there any Windows based software packages that do all of this? If not, do you have any recommendations for another device that can do all of this? Thanks!

    Todd

    Thanks for the reply, but I don't think Navmii will accept the import of destination points. :(

    It looks like you can download a POI file in *.db (sqlite 3) format, so not very usable, you could try :-

    I guess there is not much demand for satnav programs on a platform that does not have built-in GPS and is primarily used in a stationary location, e.g. at home, for about double the cost of a plug-in USB GPS receiver, you can buy a stand alone satnav unit
