Cool! I’ll place an order when I get home (at work right now)[:D]
This is the program that is required for a future Roadfood.com add-in. Roadfood.com gets 5% on all purchases made with the links provided on the site[:)]
I noticed that the Roadfood homepage now has Microsoft’s Streets and Trips 2004. Is this related to the software in the works that we talked about earlier? Does Roadfood get a percentage of this? (I would hope you would)[?]
Stephen, if I remember correctly DeLorme has an office/outlet in Freeport,ME on the right just after you exit the highway.
I believe near/across from the tourist bureau.
Big Globe inside building.
I would be interested as well.
Sounds like an excellent revenue generating source.
Imagine a corporation, like a Krispy Kreme, or a Dunkin Donuts being part of the update. It would save me time and effort to know locations of certain chain establishments, not the McDonald’s of the world, but ones such as Peet’s,or Dairy Queen, that are commonly referred to in the forums.
Congratulations on your wedding.
Mine is April 2004 in Kennebunkport,ME
"We did have a program for MAC users, but we weren’t able to sell enough to pay for it. We continue to monitor MAC sales volume to determine whether it would be cost effective to develop our new programs for MAC compatibility. There are currently no plans to do so."
Sorry ’bout that. And that is probably the same reason other developers don’t have MAC versions. I, too, prefer the MAC OS but have caved in to PC for software availability and to be compatible with my clients’ systems.
Yup, I’m a Mac person, too. I don’t know about mapping software, I have always just used the available web-based programs, like MapQuest. Streets and Trips sounds like it would be better, but unfortunately not for all of us.
Hillbilly, how about posting for us Mac users any further info you come up with re Deloreme mapping programs for the Mac. I went back to the Delorme website but was unable to navigate to any additional information beyond that which got at my first visit. Thanks.
Delorme’s web site lists a Mac mapping program but doesn’t show it as the 2003 version. It also shows this version as currently "SOLD OUT".
Their "Street Atlas 2003 PLUS" seems to have the flexibility to easily add in your favorite locations (like Roadfood stops). I’m going to have to check it out.
The regular "SA 2003" shows a $45 price, the "SA2003PLUS" shows $95.
Hillbilly, years ago I had some Delorme programs for an old Mac, so I just assumed Delorme offered a current Mac version of "Street Atlas 2003". When checked its website earlier, tho, if I was reading correctly, it stated "Street Atlas 2003" supports only the Windows platform. At another spot I found wording to effect that not all Delorme programs support the Mac platform; to check specifically for those which do; yet I could never find any info as to which of its programs are Mac compatible. So I just don’t know which of its programs fit that category, but don’t believe "Street Atlas 2003" does. Know I’m surely far from the world’s best (more like the world’s worst) when it comes to anything computer and internet related, but also don’t believe Delorme has the world’s best (or most user friendly) website.
I think that Delorme has a Mac version of it’s "Street Atlas 2003" program. The total Delorme system, including the GPS receiver, costs less than $200. I don’t know the cost of the "Street Atlas" by itself.
There must be a way you can be included. Is there a mapping program in particular that Mac users use?
Sounds like a GREAT idea, but there are probably many Mac users out there (me included). Is there some way to include us in this general plan?
Stephen, my only connection with Delorme is one with a long time usage. I visited there the week after 9/11 on a bird watching trip. They gave me a great tour. I have used their mapping program for several years.
I have requested another tour on this birding trip and with your permission, I will discuss your venture.
I have their GPS connected with my laptop and it is a neat program as it talks to you. If you goof up, it will kidnly suggest you make a safe U turn and then give you directions.
I use their restaurant and hotel directions very frequently and they are very accurate.

Ohh, you have a connection with Delorme? I would love to hear your findings.
Stephen, I do have questions. I currently use Delorme mapping and one of their features is a listing of restaurants. I am not sure how many but they claim many. Many of the restaurants featured here are on Delorme.
For instance: Stern told me about Becky’s in Portland and it was on Delorme. I have noticed many others that are there. They show the location, address and phone number and if they have a e-mail address, they indicate it.
I wish you well on your suggestions and I for one will subscribe for no other reason but to be a loyal roadfooder, but I think you have some minor competition.
I will be in Portland, ME this next week and I will visit with Delorme and investigate how you can add or improve their program.
