Psion GPS Software

In no particular order, here's some Psion GPS software. I don't actually own a Psion, so I can't provide reviews.  If you'd like to provide brief reviews, I'd be happy to include (or link to) them here or perhaps you would like to take over maintenance of this site. Contact Dale DePriest.

New features (thanks, Ruud): 
GaRoute 2.0 can now read and interpret a Route that you plan on your Psion 5 in RoutePlanner and transfer that route as route or track to your Garmin GPS. It  now no longer depends on Macros: it works on it's own making it easier to install.  Data for routes and waypoints are stored in Psion's standard data application format and no longer in proprietary format.  It can now also create Overlay files (for Street Planner and Routeplanner) from these standard data files.
