    For those that are interested: 8-)

    Updated on 3-Lib in the last two weeks:
    The 3-Lib library CD updated for April 2004 - the definitive compilation
    of all Psion freeware, shareware and archived bits from days gone by
    My guide to GPS moving-map/navigation on all Psion and Symbian
    platforms.
    Updated my PsiFind page again, with more orphaned Psion programs
    Updated TimeLog for the P800/P900 to v1.6, with more timers and better
    battery efficiency.
    Added a journal through the years of my own mobile computing history -
    what did I use, when and why?
    Updated the Team Psion and Pitstop databases for the 2004 Formula 1
    teams. Psion and Nokia 9210 versions available. Play with the current
    team/driver set!

    Thanks for these updates. I agree with your assessment of TomTom City
    Maps - the CD is a bargain!
    There is at least one other programme that you might have included -
    "RealMaps" by Kevin Millican.
    This allows user to create maps on Psion from scans of paper maps, or from
    any other graphical image of a map. GPS moving map works with this
    perfectly, although without (of course) route planning.

    Yep, know it well. Great as a home-brew moving map solution, though not
    quite what I was focussing on in the article, i.e. full-blown navigation
    solutions. Hey, I didn't even mention my (very old) Mapper 8-)

    OK. If you were only targeting route planning systems I'll forgive you.
    And your modesty on Mapper does you great credit :-)
    But for off-road moving map applications, I am not aware of any Psion
    options other than RealMaps. Do you know of any others?

    Thanks. Steve Litchfield's site mentions those, which are excellent. But I
    was asking specifically about options for off-road use. I only know of
    RealMaps (also excellent) and I was asking if Steve L knew of others. You
    might want to go back and read the full thread, then this would make more
    sense....

    No. 8-) Again though, I was focussing on route-planning, GPS-aware road
    navigation systems. I wanted to show people that there's more to this
    field than Palm OS and Pocket PC 8-))

    I have no idea whether Steve L ever encountered it but there was, for Series
    3, also TDCGPS. I exchanged source with the author, Simon Taylor, for a
    while. It lacks some of the irritating idiosyncrasies of RealMaps, and keeps
    more closely to the standard GUI, but of course has a few peculiarities of
    its own. So far as I know it was never ported to Series 5.

    Mike.
