<div>I had been wondering about Delorme - they ask users to send in map updates and corrections as if they were using them. You say Delorme had the new exit numbers - is this on Street Atlas? OR the Delorme paper maps? I've never fully understood why Delorme doesn't just hire a bunch of programmers to enter their "paper" date into electronic format for GPS mapping - their paper maps are a LOT more accurate and uptodate than any of the GPS data.
