Thanks Nedra, for the info on Truckstops as POI, which was really a big loss to me. Back in the old days, I used to hit ctrl-J and it would bring up all truckstops coming up, kinda like along the way I guess.
What somebody should do is publish an Xdata base with truckstop and service info. RV could have one also. They have a lot of common needs, but separate ones as well.
As far as truck ROUTING goes, well some experience and common sense and diligence....

Cat scale and LOVES doesn't provide Lat-Longs and I don't have time to convert Hwy Exits to Lat-Longs.
Warning: NOT ALL LOCATIONS ARE ACCURATE, ONLY WHAT I CORRECTED OR VERIFIED. SOME LOCATIONS ARE MILES OFF (Blame the truck Stops who don't seem to know the Lat-Longs of their fuel stops !!)
