After a while... Version 2.2.78 got updated on August 11, 2003
A filter option is added, to remove points that are close to each other or points that are in line.
GaRoute will integrate with Kevin Millican's RealMaps! Both reading points and reading/writing waypoint (.TXT) files.
Note that you need v5.11 of RealMaps or newer, so get the latest version from Kevin's website
Now you can grab coordinates for GaRoute from ANY map you can lay your hands on (and scan or convert). This opens up sources of information beyond Street / City Maps and Route Planner of TomTom. Eg. you can use maps of countries not covered or with details not covered, like your local detailed maps, or your maritime maps.
Thanks Kevin, for the help getting the integration done.

Travelling a lot...
Try to find an address in a town you've never visited before....
I've put together a solution to this problem.... read on
Now I can type an address I want to find in my Psion 5 organizer....
....and have an real time arrow in front of me in the car on the Garmin GPS.
This will show both direction and distance toward my target address.
The solution involves StreetPlanner 99 and/or Route Planner from Palmtop, and a program I wrote myself: GaRoute.
