Which is the best way and software to program (european) routes in a windows Mobile Device (version 6.x) and in a Winforms application?

I have already found someting about Mappoint (webservices).. is it good ? Howto use?
Which software to use on the Mobile itself ? (psion?)

1) I need to locate all cars on a Winform application and calculate the routes there
2) i need to upload those routes live to the Mobiles
3) On the Mobile itself should also be navigation software (which best?)

Kindly regards

PS I mostly use VB but C# is also ok? Is everything to do with the GPS intermediate driver? with all software? ... thx !!!

thats already a little information, but i need a good solution for uploading the routes (with waypoints) to a gps (which is best?) software for mobile phones (like psion ikon ... ) .

In which protocol?
Is garmin ok? SDK?

Are there any code examples of doing this all? anywhere?

I got tracking examples enough to get position, but not to download/upload complete routes to a gps device on a handheld

every gps brand has its own software to load the routes.

Idd jaime, you are right, what Garmin considers, there is a very good SDK available ... but on the site of route calculations on PC itself, there is not much software except Mappoint right?

talking about Microsoft, Mappoint is the unique product with routing capabilities, Pocket Streets (discontinued) had not. Also there are lots of 3rd party products with mapping/routing capabilities.

Google Map API:
You can find an "old" version also.
They have much more with AJAX for JAVA and non JAVA environment.
