    can do with our search engine, A2B:

    – Basic idea being you can search for websites associated with a location – either the position you get from GPS or by clicking on a map.
    – The software works on Windows, Pocket PC and Windows Mobile 2003/2005
    – You can find some free maps here – http://forum.a2b.cc/viewforum.php?f=7
    – There’s also a free piece of GPS software without the maps at http://www.a2b.cc/software.a2b
