We put a short video together describing the basic features of Overland Navigator. Hope it is helpful in answering some of the questions I've received.

MSRP of Microsoft Streets and Trips is $39.95, and it is often sold for a lot less. The same goes for DeLorme Street Atlas. I think that is quite reasonable price. Some users are mistakenly under the impression that they need to buy a new software/hardware bundle each year - yeah, that indeed would become costly - but if you already own a GPS receiver that works with your laptop, all that you need is the new software version.

There are other PC GPS software programs that work well with your Dell Mini: List of Netbook GPS Software
