    try garmin.com and check out their gps units for truckers. Some have multi stop routing and may do what you want.

    I used Delorme street maps. It has a gps antenna and the software is on your laptop. It automatically records and saves your driving activities throughout the day. It also is on a map where you can type in an address or a GPS location in case you are having a hard time finding the address. It worked well for me for years.

    It is a good way to cover your butt.

    This man is on to something. My prints show zero HH and I use it to mark on my map where a HH is and how my fiber actually runs. That way when it comes time for screening if im not sure I just type the address into Delorme and it shows my fiber. Of course you have to manual draw a line that represents my fiber. And then in the winter it makes it a breeze to find my HH with snow on top

    As for mapping software, depends on what type of maps you are looking at. ArcPad or Bluebeam. Take a gander and see what you think.
