Features are extremely lacking. Basically, it's points are GPS locator, street map, and Interest mapper. However, the ability to use templates, overlays, waypoints, custom databases, partial maps, custom labeling, etc. (stuff that used to be in StreetAtlas and are now incorporated into Google's system) are completely missing. Almost all functionality is directed to very clumsy buttons and a few key equivalents. Most of these functions are not present in the menubar, and therefore most automation functioning is not possible -- and if there are alternatives, they aren't mentioned. It's easy to understand and use, but then again there are no significant functions to confuse you. Stability is fairly good, I only had it crash out a few times when using it to confirm positioning for a major NYC location pamphlet for a convention. It always restarted cleanly. However, it has two two drawbacks (three considering the fact that it is now late 2006). It is extremely slow and clunky (and could use a major interface remake) -- StreetAtlas PC works Significantly faster under Virtual PC (at least 3-5x). It's freakin' huge! Rather staggeringly so. Make me wonder what database form they used for all the information, and whether it would work faster without all the points of interest (or at least major parts of it). And now that it's late 2006, the company hasn't done anything with the database (streets or POI) in 3 years... and from their website, doesn't look like they will anytime soon. If they had supported templates and overlays, they could have been a major 3rd-party supported software -- Anybody notice how many people are plugging into Google's map system with extras, like subway maps, timetables, and the like?

This was the only route planner on the Mac and now there are none that I know of. No longer supported. No new updates. This link to this update is DEAD .

Kind of clunky. Interface isn't very good. Not real fast on a older 450 tower. Not nearly as good as StreetAtlas on OS9 which I'll go back to using for now. Not a total waste of money but I was expecting a better program.

i think it runs ok on my pb17. the only thing i'm missing is voice output, and that might be coming up in the next update... they just released a pda version, which is supposed to be really good... give us voice output and tracking of gps data, and import of waypoints...

You have to buy an original CD and they do n't offer a demo version Here is a qoute from the company when I emailed them: "Unfortunately, I have to inform you that ROUTE 66 does not have any demo or shareware version of its software." This tells me they don't stand behind there product.

Software has lots of great data (points of interests, address, business, ect) but the interface it horrible! GPS "support" is lackluster as it can only receive the current position from the GPS. No tansfering of waypoints or routs. The software is also extreamly slow (G4 867, 1gb ram) Driving directions generated by this program also leave much to be desired. Just use mapquest.com

It can be a bit frustraiting to figure out at first, the button icons could look better, but in the good news department, it does have alot of info (includes Canada), you can save "bookmarks" or pin's as the program calls them, and on this old Pizmo, though it's very very slow at 400mhz it has never crashed. (not much slower than the good old delorme street atlas it replaced). If you really really need a map program for os X, it's worth it's $50 as the only current choice.

This program is the worst I have ever owned. If you can get it to install trying to plan a trip is frustrating. You can't search by state or city or country. The support is terrible. Don't waste your money.

I just bought Route 66 a few days ago, and was excited as it looked like a Mac OS X interface, and I expected it to work well. Trouble is, I cannot even get the app to start ... before even getting a splash screen (or an opportunity to enter the registration code), I get the dreaded "The application has unexpectedly quit." Aargh! Route 66 v3.6.0 build 4 '01 iBook (5oo MHz) 384M RAM

The user interface is absolutely terrible; it's obvious they never actually tried to use this program before shipping it. Sure, the buttons all do what they're supposed to, but the interface is so poorly designed that it's frustrating to use. The map data, or the use of it, leaves much to be desired. Missing roads, incorrect roads, routes that go the wrong way on one-way streets, routes that do strange things. I love how they release updates, but there is no way to actually tell which "build" of 3.6.0 you're running, so you just download the update and hope it's a newer version than what you've got. That's really cool. Unfortunately, this rather poor program is the only option available for OS X.
