I plan to put my existing PCBs of the Jupiter GPS into a rather slim
case and fit it just underneath the Newton. Even w/o GPS a digitized map
is very helpful with all of its features like NAV points and so on. And
as old boy-scout: nothing can go wrong ;-)

My UKmap was made from a digitized map, called Helveticus. As this name
suggests: The main purpose of this CD is Switzerland maps and air
photographs as well as town maps. But my UKmap contains Eire too and the
program could create LAT/LON lines which made the map making sh??? easy.
Didn't I wrote you privately about it? The pkg is 5MB which prevents
that I e-mail it to anyone. You'll have to pick it up on a website or
ftp server. There's something in our company but at this moment it's not
settled up.
