    Was looking to find a cheap way to tell me which order i should do my routes in to be fastest and closets to where i am at one current time. I thought Rand McNally had something but not sure? Any help would be great!!

    gps. use google maps or mapquest and put in all the address then route them in the fastest way possible through there.

    Well what i wanted to do was put in all the address at once and have the software tell me which one to start and which one was the closets to farthest away...................maybe that's the same thing you are saying, not sure!

    Go to Google maps. Type in all your addresses as destinations, and then save the map. Google will then give you the best route between your destinations depending on the parameters you pick.

    Microsoft streets and trips works well. Have that on my laptop and kep it with me when im plowing. Real nice for blowing snow to keep me on the road, it can tell which lane you are in on a street.
