Hi Shirley, Thanks! I'll give that 'earl' a try. ;-) There seems to be quite a bit of hardware out there that isn't too horribly priced. However, all of the reviews I've read so far seem to be of the "The hardware is fine. But Dang! 'so-and-so' is awfully proud of their mapping software." So now I'm looking into the software costs ... trying to get a handle on that TCO thang. Thanks! RonL.
