They're also on sale from RV Bookstore. They had a much more detailed definition of the computer capabilities required, as follows:
System Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 compatible. NOT Mac compatible. CPU 2GHz or greater, 1 GB RAM Minimum is recommended, Hard drive with 3.3 GB of available space, DVD Drive. Internet features require a compatible browser and Internet Service Provider (ISP) and GPS feature requires a laptop computer and a NMEA-compliant GPS receiver.
If I can get the netbook out of DW's hands for long enough, I'll check it. I suspect that the processor speed might be a tad low.
My concern about the DVD being required was whether the oprating program went out to the DVD for data while searching. Gary posted that the DVD stays in the cabinet, so that's obviously not an issue.
we do have a home network with a shared DVD/CD drive, so I will load it that way if the netbook can hadle the program.
