    What are you guys running or heard that is good?

    I just want something that works as similar to classic google maps as possible and allows me to manipulate the plotted route.

    I use a Garmin on my Wing other than the in-dash unit. It is a 2595LM but I use a program called Tyre to develop my routes and then the can be quickly saved to the Garmin through the application.

    They have a free edition that bworks really well you can upgrade if desired. The app is developed in The Netherlands but is available in all languages and I have really enjoyed it. It has many options, one of which is the "Avoid" option. I have mine set to avoid highways, toll roads and unpaved roads.

    It also works with Tom Tom.
