Garmin CityNavigator vs Metroguide?

A coworker is considering some software for his GPS, and I'm not saavy on these. Can anyone recommend one versus the other, or point out some highlights of them?

Thanks!

I've always turned the engine off and then taken my helmet off and remained on the bike.

Decent Ride around Lexington, VA?

I've been tasked with putting together a day-ride for some of our alumni in September. All kinds of bikes, so no adventure stuff unfortunately.

Can any of you locals tell me if this sounds good?...
