Please help GPSCity.com reach the target of 5000 names on their online petition to increase support for the Mac platform among manufacturers of GPS equipment. Before Friday, August 8 they had only received 500 signatures in six months, then they got a whopping 2300 in one day after news of their campaign hit a couple of Mac news sites.

As you browse through the GPS products and software we carry on our Web site, you will note that the vast majority of the products are all PC based, with no support for Apple products. Delorme currently is the only manufacturer selling mapping software that is Mac based.
We have talked in the past with the manufacturer’s of the GPS products about providing Apple compatibility. We even offered to assist them by allocating our own resources to get the job done. But to no avail. They always cite ‘lack of development resources’ and ‘not enough market share’ to make it worthwhile. “

Current count is 5380 at press time. -Ed
