1.0 out of 5 stars GPS Device not compatable with 64 bit systems December 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
After wasting hours, loading and reloading the device driver I went to Microsoft Help where there are many posts from other people with 64 bit operating systems with the same problem. If Microsoft is not going to fix a well known problem, the least they should do is mention it will only work with 32bit OS in the system requirements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maps badly out of date. October 31, 2012
By AWL III
Verified Purchase
I just got Streets & Trips 2013 to replace the 2010 version. I expected to get revised maps but there is a lot that is still missing, it's not much better than my 2010 version. Software is updated and good but without three years of mapping revisions it's no better (Map wise) than the older versions. If you can get along without the software upgrades stay with what you have.

Oh, I have two Garmins & both have current maps, both are far superior to the maps in Streets & Trips.

Rating reflects good software & poor maps.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag September 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
S&T is inherently easier to work with for trip planning than a stand-alone GPS because PCs have larger screens and because you can pan and zoom the map with a mouse. A PC also makes it easier to scroll through the turn-by-turn list of directions.

Entering destinations is easier because typing on a keyboard beats tapping individual characters on a GPS screen, and creating a multi-destination route with S&T requires nothing more than inserting another destination in a list.

S&T could replace a portfolio of AAA maps, if you have your computer handy and turned on, but those old 2' by 3' sheets of paper still allow you to view more at a glance -- and they don't require batteries.

Travel routes are highlighted with the equivalent of a fat, blue magic marker. Something a little less gross would be an improvement.

S&T's absolute worst feature is the font used for street names. It is ugly and hard to read.

Even though the map data supposedly was updated in 2012, it still is not fully up-to-date. In my subdivision, streets existing for five years are not shown. S&T has the same incomplete data as Bing maps and MapQuest. It's odd that the streets are missing, since the Bing aerial photos show the paved streets, and Google maps has shown the streets correctly for a long time. Also, Places fails to show some gas stations that have been operating for at least a year.

The GPS sensor included with the combination package seems quite sensitive. For example, it will create a clear track for a walk around my back yard.

Streets & Trips could serve as a substitute for a standalone GPS, but it really is more of a companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for OTR truck drivers. December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
I use this as an OTR truck driver. It's great for route planning. It's really nice seeing an overview of your route as well as planning stops and 10 hour breaks with ease. ( I also use Truck Stops Plus add-on, so I know where all the truck stops/ weigh stations Wal-Marts etc are and can easily add them to my route).

I use the GPS feature. Obviously you must still verify the route with your road atlas, as this product is designed for cars (Truck Stop Plus really helps here) but it's nice seeing and hearing about upcoming turns as well as keeping a running tab of your progress. Speaking of hearing the turns, I turn the "pause Windows media player" option off, because every time the software says "out of route" (road construction, pulling in to fuel, etc) it starts and stops the media player over and over.

Overall, I really love this product. It just makes life a lot easier. I would highly recommend it to any trucker. I also highly advise getting the Truck Stop Plus add-on. ( [...] )

4.0 out of 5 stars Streets and Trips 2013 July 26, 2012
The new Streets and Trips 2013 installed and ran without a problem on my laptop and on my desktop. The program seems to be a little quicker in calculating a route. There are more points of interest. It was a worthwhile upgrade for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars travel planner September 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
generally okay for planning. has some good tools like finding what's near here and estimating the trip. I found it awkward at times with some panes disappearing and trying to figure out how to get them back. the software also routed me the long way around in multiple instances, adding about 200 miles at one point to my vacation. I also didn't like the way it broke up a road that changed its name, making it difficult to calculate how far to drive on that part of the route. It did let me add new points so i could try 'what if' scenarios. Haven't yet found the magic button to pick the most efficient route based on the stops I wanted.

3.0 out of 5 stars The "updated" maps are not as up to date as implied September 26, 2012
Newer isn't necessarily better. I purchased the Streets & Trips 2013 specifically because I had read that the maps had been updated for the first time in 3 or 4 years. Yet, the maps do not have the corrections that the maps on a cheap GPS I bought two years ago from a China Vendor. In fact, my previous two year old TomTom had corrections that are not on the Streets & Trips 2013 (nor on my newer Garmin for that matter). Besided, the maps don't seem to be any better than the Streets & Trips 2009 maps that I also own. Of course, that is only a superficial speculation from appearances.

Other than the outdated map issue, the Streets & Trips 2013 loaded into my netbook (IBM Lenovo) without glitch and I was able to activate the maps over the Internet. (I haven't tried to activate the product on several computers as one reviewer says to have done in his review. And I'm a bit skeptical of such a claim.)

The important thing is I was able to load the maps on a unit with only a 1024 X 5?? screen resolution. (DeLorme Mapping software refused to install because of the screen size of my netbook). And the netbook with Streets & Trips 2013 has more functionality than any standalone GPS unit that I know of.

There you have it. Don't buy the Streets & Trips 2013 for what you think will be updated maps. You are likely to be sadly disappointed. Buy the Streets & Trips 2013 because you want to install the software on a computer for whatever reason. And Streets & Trips 2013 is about as inexpensive as the most recent previous version.
