I am in the process of developing a number of CRM 3.0 customisations and integrations for demonstration purposes, including integration with the Microsoft MapPoint Web Services. I will be posting code samples in the near future, and for those of you who want to start using MapPoint for test and development purposes you can sign up for a free developer account here:
