I am still trying to determine the best aviation/moving map software that
fit my need. I still use paper chart, pen and clock for cross country. I am
not looking for anything fancy or top-line software. A simple moving map
will do just fine. Here is what I have seen so far:

Simple and straightforward. I can get sectional and TAF scanned and loaded
it to this software. Price: 30 bucks. Anyone experience using this software?
Good or bad?

Looks like a complete mapping software included PPC version. Price: 99
bucks. More expensive than oziexplorer. Any comment on this one?

Still under Beta version. According the website, version 1.0 expected to
come out early this year. It is a freeware version. Features for this
software exceed my basic need. The Picture is poor, but donation of 60 bucks
will give you a key that allow you to view better pictures. Anyone
experience using this one?

The real aviation software comparing to others. Price 249 bucks.

Also, I looked into several other software (subscription) like AnywhereMap,
NavGPS, etc. These are perfect software to use. Since I am currently a
graduate student and I don't fly as much as most of you guys do, I thought
it would be unwise for me to buy these software.

Any others that I should be looking at?

Any Suggestion?
