This review is from: Rand McNally StreetFinder & TripMaker Deluxe (CD-ROM)
I am so frustrated about having this program I felt I needed to write a review to warn potential buyers.
I've used 3 softwares: Garmins' MapSource USA, AAA/Delorme's Map & Go 4.0 (1998). This is by far the WORST program.
Looks good with nice package and appealing interface, but works poorly.
1. It's very slow - takes a long time to load and refresh. For each zoom in/out action, it takes about 2 to 3 seconds to refresh. I use a P4 top of line laptop by the way and have the whole program installed on my harddisk.
2. The TripMaker has lots of fancy functions like expense tracking, daily schedule etc. It's all too cumbersome to use and impractical.
3. GPS function does not provide voice commands (ie PC tell you which direction to go).
I intended to replace my 1998 version of Delorme's Map&Go from AAA with this program. But the former is still much more superior than this!
