Not quite - well not verbally anyway as it's designed to be usable anywhere without tracks or roads.

But if you plan a route carefully with waypoints, you can elect to follow that route so it will always show an arrow pointing to the next waypoint.
The trick is placing the waypoints on track junctions etc or featureless areas where you need direction.

For roads, if you can use an OS map it's useable but really no replacement for a street based satnav.

i agree with Tim, but for plotting, finding green lanes, sorting your route and printing off maps of the route it is great, you can also email overlays of your route to mates so they can see what your planning :)

also, although the map itself can be quite small, you can run MM on most windows based mobile phones with either integral or external gps systems.

i used it on my MDAIII and now have it on my omnia.

this is handy if you want portability.

and another great thing is you can use the TOR road books to plot routes on to your memory map and take your lappy with you :)

Can you do any sort of route planning with it or is it just for plotting and mapping, it would be great to be able to ask it to take me home via as many lanes as possible.
