Is there a calculator to show the savings from prepaying my mortgage?

Prepaying your mortgage can be a great way to save a bundle of extra cash over time. Doing so not only saves in interest cost but builds equity faster and also shortens the term of your loan, so you'll own your home free and clear much sooner.
