The Rand McNally Motor Carrier Atlas, especially the laminated one, is an extremely valuable helper. And you can lay it down open, and it will stay open.

We may be old-fashioned but we use books in addition to the GPS. We just found the GPS was not enough...and certain places it wouldn't route us properly.
So, we have a mountain directory, "the next exit" guide as well as an RV atlas.

Co Pilot has a new v8 that supports win 7 and 64 bit...it is available as a down loadable update and you will need to get a new gps receiver but all can be done for around $100

I usually do not depend solely on the GPS as it can be WRONG. I usually supplement it with a paper map.

Yesterday, while coming down from Tulsa, to the Menolia or Canton, TX area, the map was not on the seat where it normally rides and I took the direction from my GPS...know as "EB" or "BB". we wound up going down some really narrow and tree lined county roads in East Texas. We were expecting to see the locals sitting on the porch playing Dueling Banjos

Streets and Trips with the GPS and a netbook work much better that the GPS since it has construction updates.
