- Yes, we gave up Mac ibook for a cheap PC notebook. We tired of long waiting for Garmin to provide the software support for Mac. We are not impressed with MacCaching.

We too are a Mac family. VMware Fusion + Windows + GSAK = win,
especially with USB pass through to talk to your GPSr.
I prefer Fusion to Parallels. While Fusion is newer to the game, its
come a long way.
I remember when I first met the Deafdillos in ~2005, who were big Mac

My $0.02. Cheers.
