4.0 out of 5 stars Great for netbooks, and NO problem with Windows 7 November 1, 2010
By Y. H.
Verified Purchase
First, a comment on Tom's review that his receiver did not work with W7: mine works great on my little Toshiba netbook running Windows 7 Basic. It worked before i upgraded memory to 2GB, but a bit slow. it works flawlessly on 2GB. i also tried it with (a trial version of) Streets and Trips 2010, didn't see any problem. actually i believe 2010 version uses the same receiver. So it seems Tom simply got a defective one.

As for the future version of the software, i don't see any reason why the receiver would not work. gps receivers are standardized these days.

Let's go back to the product itself. i saw some negative comments about the receiver's reception. i used in a Jeep Liberty in mountains (if it matters). i brought a long extension usb cable with me just in case i would need to hand it on the rear view mirror. it turned out to be unnecessary. i got good reception throughout the trip in the mountains in Zion, Glen and Grand Canyon National Parks.

One good thing i like it especially is that it shows the elevation. you would really appreciate it when you travel in mountains. i think only very expensive car gps's do that.

I should admit that i also have a car gps in the vehicle mostly for urban areas. i bought the software for travels on foot, like when i fly to another city for a meeting, and to Europe (there is a Europe version of the software). i don't have a 4G mobile phone and don't want to pay the monthly data fee. i will always have my netbook with me, and feel this is the best solution. It would work well as a car gps if you can somehow put it on your dashboard (i can't do it on my dashboard), or perfectly well if you have a navigator sitting in the passenger seat.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2009 version gps will not work with Windows 7 August 16, 2010
By Tom

I purchased the 2009 maps & streets w/gps & the gps would not work. I called Microsoft & was told they would send me a newer gps that will work with windows 7. The gps unit works fine with my old 2005 version of maps & streets.

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so application April 1, 2010
By SJS
Verified Purchase
Overall, the quality of the maps in this version (2009) is fairly good.

I bought this version to get the GPS dongle, for a trip across Mexico. The Mexican maps and turn-by-turn directions are unexpectedly good. (There are several "use local road for..." instructions, but when one arrives there, it's self-evident.)

The problem with this application is that the lawyers had the last vote in the interface. Because of the prompts and "I Agree...." screens this application is truly dangerous to use in the car. For example, when the laptop goes to sleep, simply waking it up will not resume the application. One must "fiddle" with the controls to re-awaken the GPS function. So one must pull over, fiddle, wait and resume travel.

It's not a bad program, and I got it for very little money, so I suppose the lesson here is one gets what one pays for.

If I had to do it over, I'd go with a Garmin (for the Mexican maps) and be done with it. For travel / route planning, this application is decent. For enroute travel, not so much....

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows Streets & Maps June 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love this program. I use it to plan my trips to So. Calif. for snowbirding
and all the stops along the way. The price was great. I wanted to put it on
my desktop and my laptop. The 2010 version evidently does not allow you to do
that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased May 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
I purchased this product after the most recent 2010 version was out to save a buck. I was very pleased but almost didn't bother with a review since it is unlikely that stock will be available for others to purchase.

The newer GPS devices are very good and any PC or tablet is going to be less convenient in a car. Certainly, it would be reasonable to use a GPS for travel and an online service for larger desktop views. Streets and Trips does not depend on an internet connection (after installation), which can be an advantage. Planning features are at least comparable to the best on the net. I've used it when either I or my GPS or both are confused on the road. The large screen view makes it more likely that you can quickly regain a feel for the area or overall sanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streets and Trips March 28, 2010
By Mike
Verified Purchase
I love Streets and Trips. I have used S&T since it came out. You use to be able to buy it CostCo for $14.00, but now it is a bit more money, but still worth it. I use to tour with Rock shows and we would ride around the country in Buses. One night we left a show in St Louis, headed for Dallas on IH-44. We blew an inside rear tire on the bus and could only drive at about 40mph. I got on S&T, and set the view to look for gas stations and repair shops. It was 3:00 am so nothing was opened. So I set S&T to view all Hotels, and the software also lists phone numbers. I started calling Hotels and asking if they knew of any tire repair shops. One Hotel, the fellow said his brother could do it and gave me a home number. We met him at his shop at 4:00am, and repaired the tire and we beat the other buses to Dallas. The show or hide places is really great, I wish it would show Cigar Stores also....
