Navman 5500 PC software

Does anyone know of any pc software that allows waypoint management/entering routes that communicates with a Navman 5500?

Its just so annoying entering names having to go through the whole alphabet for each letter using the plotter!

The C-Map PC planner software does just what you are looking for - in May Redcar were doing a great deal on it for 49 (which includes the USB multimedia reader needed to read and write to C-cards), but I'm not sure if they still have it at this price.
You would also need a user card (29 inc delivery from PRS comms) to get the data into your Navman 5500, although this can also be used to get track data out of your plotter to look at on a PC or for analysing the course actually taken from a cruise.
Hope this helps.
