There are a number of different version of WorldMate and to findthe one that's best for you take a look at the company Web site. Onevery cool feature is Global Weather Forecasts that can give youthe 5-day forecast in a huge number of cities. My wife and I use it whenwe're traveling to see what's in store. You can also get the latestsatellite imagery so you can see weather patterns for a particularregion or country.
Another very cool feature in WorldMate 2006 for Smartphones isthe ability to get flight information in real time. Find out if yourflight is on time, if your connecting flight is late, what gate you'rearriving at, and more.
For traveling, you get World Clocks that will show you the timein five different time zones and also takes Daylight Savings Time intoaccount. The World Day - Night Map is cool because it shows you aprojection of the world and depicts exactly where it's day and whereit's night. You can see the "terminator" and even do searches for citiesof interest.
WorldMate 2006 for Smartphones also has some neat extras that youmight not think about otherwise. For example, a currency converter thatlets you check up to three (3) currencies at one time. There's also amodule for converting measurements like weights, temperatures, lengths,and so on. Really great for finding out what that gift is going toweight in pounds instead of kilos. You can also convert clothing sizesso the jacket you buy for a friend in the UK will fit your friend inthe US. Slick!
