Well first you need a GPSr that can Autoroute! Do you have one?

Garmins come with a base map that will allow you to autoroute on major highways without any additional software. You can then buy additional more detailed software called MapSource and one of the following:

City Select
City Navigator
Topo USA

My 60cs would not autoroute with the base map or Topo USA. It didn't work until I bought City Select.

Mine will but it sucks and if you don't know the area you do a bit more driving then you need too.
