[8:30 AM] And Then Street Atlas Shrugged
by Staff

DeLorme has released new Mac-compatible versions of the atlas software, Street Atlas USA 6.0, and their GPS receiver, Earthmate. The new version adds enhanced GPS compatibility, updated maps, one-way road listing, and a host of other new features. According to DeLorme:

With new features like address-to-address routing, one-way roads in major cities, the Via routing tool and updated road data, Street Atlas USA 6.0 for Macintosh combines with the Earthmate GPS Receiver to provide powerful mapping and navigation tools for both business travelers and vacation planners.

Macintosh users will be able to type in street addresses and the program will provide directions between them, as well as a highlighted route on the map. And, with the new Via function, users can easily select and include individual road segments in the routing process. Street Atlas USA 6.0 for Macintosh includes all the great features found in the previous version, including 15 levels of map detail that can be customized and printed, distance and area measurement tools, and the ability to import an address book.

New and Improved Features:

  • Door-to-door routing (quickest, shortest, preferred or most scenic)
  • Via routing function
  • Earthmate(tm) GPS Receiver support
  • Updated road information
  • One-way roads for major cities
  • Print detailed maps, route directions and statistics

Street Atlas USA is available for US$44.95, or in a package with the Earthmate GPS for US$159.95. You can find more information at the DeLorme web site.
