Just a question folks,

Does anyone know if there is a MAP which I can load into my GPS (TomTom on an Xda II) which will show green lanes etc?? as opposed to the usual tomtom maps.

I don't particularly want to buy all new software and then have TWO GPS programs running on the same machine (I do like TomTom and the way it works and don't know of any other GPS proggy which is quite the same in the way it presents things and works when driving normal roads).

Suggestions welcome.. :)
