I'm not familiar with SalesLogix, but if it can export its data to one
of the formats supported by MapPoint (e.g. comma separated values,
Excel, Access), chances are MapPoint can import and use them.

C++ Builder 6.0 I know that they can and work together. I need any possible help with connecting them. Please tell me how to make MapPoint react to commands from Builder. Is it possible to embed (Borland). Please let me know how to show specific location (area) on the map of running MapPoint and how to connect Borland to a specific map. TomekTomek, I'm not familiar with BC++ Builder unfortunately so I can only provide general advice on the MapPoint API. The ActiveX is known to be finicky to use from anything else than Visual Basic, so my COM automation if your application permits it.

I am wanting to deploy multiple laptops in the field using a cellular network, MapPoint and Garmin GPSs. I am looking for a way to get the lat/long data from the [MVP]. (Please reply to the group, not via email)Gilles- Thanks for the reply. I want mapPoint on the clients and I can probably figure out how to parse the NEMA sentances (I have a very extensive background in serial coms). I figured since mappoint could communicate with the GPS that the ActiveX would be able you don't need to, right. The GPS functionality is not exposed programmatically (neither in the MapPoint ActiveX control, nor via the automation server), so you'll need to either roll your own

HI Can somebody tell me (or referme to) the difference between MapPoint and Street and Tips? It looks to me that they are very similar KarelKarel, MapPoint is positioned as a business mapping application while Streets and Trips is a consumer-oriented tip planner. The maps are the same and the UI very similar - MapPoint has more demographic and statistical data and functionality, supports territories and COM add-ins, and last but not least, can be automated via custom programming as it has an object model.
