1.0 out of 5 stars Limited functionality and hard to use October 23, 2012
By R.W.S.
Verified Purchase
For the price I expected a feature rich mapping product. What I got was a product that is hard to use, does not imbed easily into other MSFT products, and didn't do what I thought should be basic functions. Plus, the map quality is primitive at best. Save your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mappoint - an in-depth review on good and the bad October 10, 2014
By Jake B.
There are things that are awesome and things that are could use some work with MapPoint. Because my career is in Sales, and to cover my territory efficiently, I have to do a ton of mapping, and I spend a lot of time mapping out my business. I use MapPoint for territory design (splitting up the territories between reps in the first place). Streets and Trips (Also by Microsoft) is my tool of choice to get around when I'm offline and need to design a route. And I use the Badger Map for mapping on my iPad and phone as well as building my daily route and schedule. I've been using MapPoint for years, so here is my experience with the good and the bad of MapPoint.

First, the best part about MapPoint is that the functionality for building the territories in the first place is awesome. Figuring out how to split up our customers into 50 equal territories across the country would be a nightmare without MapPoint. Highly recommend Mappoint for this use case.

MapPoint is also very strong in creating custom tailored maps that you can export for showing in presentations and websites. You can show territory lines, colorize by performance or sales, etc. Great for this type of territory level analysis. I'll put the outputs into photoshop if I want to get extra fancy. Its also impressively fast at doing this heavyweight numbercrunching

Its also worth mentioning that MapPoint does work offline, so if you are out in the field in rural Montana etc where AT&T hasn't bothered to put up towers, you still get access to your maps.

As far as the not-so-good parts of MapPoint:

First and most importantly: The routing basically doesn't work when you have more than 3 points or so. The routes it creates will have you criss-crossing and zig-zagging around town.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, Classic Microsoft February 6, 2013
How pathetic! I am a MapPoint user and upgraded to the 2013 edition. It is not an upgrade. I feel like one of the original Windows Millennium purchasers. It claims to use updated information but the 2013, yes, I said 2013, edition does not even have 2010 census data in it. This alone makes it only usable by people who havn't figured out that map routes are free. Bye bye, Microsoft. Great job losing another customer. I just wish I didn't purchase volume licenses.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Intuitive, Not Accurate! November 4, 2013
This software is definitely NOT easy to use. Nor is it accurate. When I import addresses and tell the software to create a route, it creates routes that are not logical, nor efficient. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason as to the stop order it creates. It will criss-cross between areas of the city.

If you wish to manually change the order, you must click on each stop and hit the up or down button to move it ONE position above or below. So in order to move a stop from position #42 to position #12, you must hit the "move" button 30 times to put it where you want.

You can not move multiple stops either. If you have a group of stops you wish to move to a different section of the route, you have to do the same thing FOR EACH STOP.

You need to purchase add-ins to do simple things like export the stop list without directions.

I have been frustrated to no end with this software

I tried to do a big project with it and loaded 27,529 current 5 digit zip codes and it could not find 3,715 of them (good zips) or by city name 3,525 - it does no comparison of it's own. The interface and the data reek of Windows 98. It does a few things nicely, it can locate using the first three digits of a zip (it still missed 776), create territories and allows multiple data sets. If, however, you want to display or print more than a small region, you will get almost no detail. If you want a full US Map, you will get something that looks like it was drawn in crayon even on a 1600 x 900 monitor. Normally an MS fan, I'd not put my name on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother August 5, 2013
Microsoft Mappoint has been a disappointment since the 2009 edition. The marketing sales pitch is way overblown. Functionality is hardly up to par. Maps are not detailed. You don't get an upgrade price (wow - that was a surprise).

Don't know what else is out there, but if you have a serious need for a mapping program, I suggest you look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very useful but MISSING tons of Streets January 30, 2013
Having used every version of MapPoint ever released, I have constantly run into problems where a certain street exists and DOES SHOW UP in Google maps . . . but is simply not there in MapPoint.

You can click on "Update Construction Information" and it does update - but that never fixes the problem. It is always missing tens of thousands of streets.

However, it is much faster to use than Google Maps, MapQuest, etc.
And it allows you to quickly load up numerous sites - have them labeled, and draw lines before exporting the map. I just hit Alt-PrintScreen and then paste it into Photoshop to finalize it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old bugs fixed, but new, less serious bugs show up. August 20, 2014
By Gym
Verified Purchase
Great. Fixes bug in 2006 and older versions. When updating multiple data sets at once with SHIFT-F9, on a PC with multi-thread CPU, errors were generated, BUT NOT anymore with this version 2013!

HOWEVER, new bug, when using DataSet Properties Dialog, after 2 to 5 "Balloon" Tab settings changes [that is, in 2 to 5 different dataset properties dialogs] (selecting new fields to show in "Show Info" Balloons on Data Points), MapPoint 2013 hangs indefinitely, and needs to be restarted. In other words, after making changes in 2,3,4, or 5 different dataset property dialogs on the balloon tab, the next change will cause MapPoint 2013 to freeze!

Microsoft, please fix your software.
