    Hi all, does anyone know where to look for a layout of your city and streets so you can list or mark your properties all over the city. I am sure there is something you can print and then be able to view all your service properties in your area(s). I have seen them in bigger maps hanging on Office walls with buttons marking the locations of work. Does Mapquest do something like this?

    Where do you do it on Rand MaNally? I don't need driving directions, only markers. Thx for your help.

    Check out the 'custom wall map' link on the left...that would work for me, I work in 2 counties but sort of straddle the border of both of them mostly.

    Most pizza shops have 'em.
    Maybe they can send you in the right direction.

    I picked up Garmin GPS18 Navigation Software for my laptop. I am in the process of inputting all of my properties as Known Points (Way Points) so that I can see them on a map. I will also be able to put them into categories. Using catagories as a service day, I can pull up the waypoints for a certain day and let the software route me the easiest way from one point to the next without any backtracking.

    i just went to www.randmcnally.com and the first thing that caught my eye was "free shipping on custom wall maps." Personally, I use Google earth.
