3.0 out of 5 stars Same as 2010 version? April 8, 2011
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I have been buying each version of this program for many years. This time, I really think that Microsoft simply did a text replace operation 2010 --> 2011 and shipped the thing out. The 2011 program seems to be bug-for-bug identical to the 2010 iteration.

Were any maps updated for 2011? Maybe. I don't have the resources to check this. Here is one data point. Over a year ago, a new freeway entrance was added near my home. A few months ago, the maps on my TomTom GPS were updated to include this. Finally. But Microsoft Streets & Trips 2011 does not include the new freeway entrance.

At this point, I could copy and paste my review for Microsoft Streets 2010 right here. Nothing has changed! The maps are still very good, although perhaps becoming old. The user interface is great, except for Microsoft's treatment of "bookmarks." Searching, editing, and organizing saved locations is primitive and inconvenient.

As in previous versions, maps will not print out at 1200 DPI (dots per inch). I can print them at 600 DPI though. I have tested this on three different printers.

I use this program from Windows 7 and it installed cleanly. However, I cannot launch it in the normal fashion. Windows complains that the program was not installed properly. The solution to this problem is to always launch the program with administrative privilege. This is slightly inconvenient.

If anyone finds a difference between this program and the 2010 version, please post your findings.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Streets & Trips" is a good product. June 6, 2011
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
This is a product continuation for me. I have used the original program (two versions) over 10 years and this new version is worth the price. They have added GPS interface and made other improvements. I recommend it.

YES... I am aware of free programs like Google maps, etc. They may be ok for a single trip to a nearby place, BUT Streets & Trips allows me to develop serious travel plans for local travel or extensive road trips. It's easy to change a route, add stop overs, include RV parks and attractions. PLUS, I get estimated travel times, fuel usage and cost estimates. It also includes updated info on road construction and potential delays. I have an RV and I travel in the U.S. for about two months every year and also take a few mini-vacations. It is a very useful and versatile program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tired of the user and or install issues May 1, 2011
By trmindy
Format:Software
Long ago I started with Streets & Trips 98 and have bought every upgrade since, now owning two separate retail copes of MS S&T 2011. Once installed you are not all set. After a period of time suddenly, one day you launch the program and you have a licensing issue or registry error requiring reinstall. Reinstalling, cleaning registry before and after is to no avail. MS has a work around in their KB articles but after years of publishing this software I have had enough of fixing their stuff and having a clumsy work around.

Imagine being in a new city and you open your laptop and suddenly the prepared maps you made for your work trip are not available. Having no software is better than bad software.

I have had this problem on both Vista Desktop & laptops. I highly recommend anything else but Streets & Trips 2011. I am going to back to Delorme and try their 2011 Street Atlas and see if it is easier to use than their prior versions. At least it'll load up and run I 'll bet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Piece of Trash April 24, 2011
Format:Software
I looked forward to Streets and Trips 2011. Boy, was I disappointed. As mentioned in another review, if you have an existing map with push pins, Streets and Trips will simply discard most or all of them - without even a warning. There appear to be few if any new features. And for some reason, I am unable to check for updates rendering the product worthless. I will never upgrade Streets and Trips again. I will stick with Delorme's products from now on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Software! April 7, 2011
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I recently replaced my laptop with a new HP with i7/6 GB/1 TB disk drive and Win 7. My old S&T 2009 won't work, so I ordered S&T 2011 figuring that the new version ought to work with Windows 7.

It doesn't. I tried all of the suggestions that people have posted in various forums to work around problems. All yield the same result - software says that it has installed and goes thru the registration steps. It then freezes when I try to start it. Trying to run it in compatibility mode gives the same result.

My advice - don't buy this program.

3.0 out of 5 stars New version isn't much different than older versions April 10, 2011
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I got this upgrade because my old version was 2005 and I need more recent maps. It works about the same as previous versions with little additional capability. It has a different skin than my old version but that is no big deal. Unfortunately, the maps are out of date for having just been released. A new road where I live that has been there a year is not on the map. I had no problem installing it or running it on my Windows 7 computers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much changed April 2, 2011
By Andrea
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I buy ever year. This year appears to have little to no map updates from last year. The program itself appears to have no viable changes. If you have last years, save your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Streets & Trips 2011 May 31, 2011
Format:Software|Verified Purchase
I am happy with my purchase. Price was good, received it quickly and installed without a hitch.

Being an x-programmer I was kind of disappointed that it wasn't as intuitive as it could have been. I would have programed it... If you have a road like I have that no longer comes out on 441 the old way because the traffic was better served if it had a new extended road... the program should be programed to auto install the new end by repeated use of the new road... yes it can be programed to do this! The other thing is the programmers didn't stand in the shoes of the user and anticipate some useful and needed functions. This program is supposed to serve you not you it. So, how about setting up your route putting your computer in hibernation... the next day you get in your vehicle plug in the GPS and bring your computer out of hibernation with one click your ready. Need to make a POI change... no problem hit f7 or whatever and it goes into follow mode until you hit f7 again which will route you back to your original trip plan. I could go on but you get the idea. Every new road could be detected and recorded and sent to the home computer. All users could then download it.

I would recommend this software to others but it could be a lot better!
