Additional Coverage Areas
The first ever MP2KMag reader poll asked readers to vote for the next coverage area for MapPoint. So far the votes are highly slanted towards South America and not Asia as I might have suspected, it may be because a majority of our readers are in North America. Haven't voted yet?
