Hi Bob,

The easiest way to get maps via Google and Map Point is by using AGWTrack
(http://www.elcom.gr/sv2agw/inst.htm ) This will work well if you have
Broadband access and don't want the extra functions of UI-View (IGate,
WX-Radar etc). If you want to go portable with APRS and mapping the best
is UI-View. There are a few maps floating around for NSW and if you really
get stuck it's not too hard to make your own.

UI-View has a great help file full of good easy to understand
that I would highly recommend any new comer to read. Just hit the 'F1' key
when running UI-View to get help.
