5.0 out of 5 stars Preliminary Review July 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Updated from the 2009 version. All recently new and modified local roads/intersections have been updated. (The most recent local road modification was done about 18 months ago.) The only other modification to the software that I see is that MS has changed the menu icons from multicolor and eye appealing to very flat, basic two-tone blank and white. This obviously doesn't impact the functionality of the software but it just looks like a step backward.

I also have a Tom-Tom which my wife and I use for short trips and to get directions from point A to point B within the state. Local travel is what the Tom-Tom and Garmin units are designed for. But where S&T beats the small units hands down is when planning long distance trips. There are many congested areas of the country I refuse to drive through (I-95 through the CT-NY-NJ area.) With S&T all I have to do is tell it to avoid this area by dragging the mouse over the map and the planned route is instantly modified. S&T also beats the small units when manually re-routing a trip. All you have to do is click on the route and drag the route marker where you want to go. S&T also provides a much greater overall map view of your trip as you are driving (you can see your progress on the entire trip rather than just a quarter mile ahead of you.) This is great with the kids/grandkids in the back seat watching the progress of the trip and seeing how far they have gone and how far they still have to go.

The little units have their place but my preference for long distance travel planning and GPS tracking is still with S&T. I was planning to upgrade to the 2012 edition but had to wait for 2013. Again, no major software upgrades that I have seen (other than the maps and POIs), but for the price I don't think you can beat it. The upgrade was worth it for the maps alone.

As seems to be the pattern with new editions of Streets and Trips, there is nothing revolutionary about this upgrade, though it was almost two years in the making. While I find it a useful program, it is still quite limiting in ways I wish would be addressed.

I use Streets and Trips almost daily. In addition to maintaining several thousand points, I receive addresses several times a day from people whereby I find their location and give them directions to the closest point in my database. And, like most people, I use Streets and Trips to plan my road trips. What has forced me to upgrade from 2007 is the new map data so I can match newer addresses.

Here is a summary of different features, the good and the bad.

Searches: The address search still needs improvement. When an address does not match anything in their database, the suggested alternatives are often far off. For example, I typed in an address and town containing "Penn Rod Rd." The search returned a Penn Wood Dr and a Penn Roberts Ln in two places across the state from the town I included with the road. Manually scanning the roads around the town I entered in, I found it: "Pennrod Rd." The search is unable to handle many of these petty errors.

Data import: The program allows you to import locations from Excel, Access, or another database. I match by GPS coordinates because the same errors and bad alternative suggestions come up here when I match by addresses, and there is no way to go into the map to find the right info without cancelling the matching procedure. Once the data is in, you have to manually check all the attributes you want to display that did not match their list of predetermined attributes.

1.0 out of 5 stars FAIL November 8, 2012
I have used Microsoft Streets an Trips since version 1. My company is a Microsoft Partner; I am a Microsoft Certified Application Developer. So I know what I am doing with a computer. This time Microsoft has produced a product that can't open older S&T map versions. After S&T recognizes the need to upgrade a previous map file, it displays the error: "Failed to open document." Other people are having this problem, but there is no support article from Microsoft. It is the year 2012, and by now Microsoft should be able to produce a consumer software product that just works. Besides that, there is no compelling feature in this version that warrants upgrading. Save your money.

While I have been a big fan of Streets and Trips over the past decade, Microsoft failed 64 bit users with a flawed DVD. The online free trial download followed by an activation works.

The benefits to using software versus ad-supported online maps are many. In particular, the user has more control over how the information is displayed. Moreover, maps can be saved and annotated. Yet, with Google Maps getting better by the day, Microsoft has really let its user base down.

Frequent users of Google Maps notice that it provides driving, public transportation, walking and bicycling directions. Streets and Trips 2013 *still* only has driving directions. What Microsoft needs to do is offer more sophisticated real-time data inputs such as those from public transit and traffic congestion sources. It surprises me that Microsoft has not made a bigger investment in this software. The product is not much different from the previous six versions. It is especially irritating as users had to wait so long for the nonexistent 2012 version to come out only to here nothing from Microsoft until the 2013 was released July 2012.

Despite the lack of investment, the benefits of standalone map software warrant purchasing Streets and Trips 2013. However, given the power of online alternatives, users may find themselves using both Google Maps and Streets and Trips 2013.

Ability to annotate and save maps
Rapid pan and zoom
No Internet access require
Powerful search nearby locations
No advertisements

No bicycle, walking or public transit directions
Little connectivity with third-party data sources
No traffic
Problems installing from DVD for 64 Bit users

I find streets & trips very useful on my laptop 15" screen than a 4" gps garwin screen. A lot easier on the eyes and you also want to purchase a mobile laptop mount.
