I've purchased the latest S&T for the last 4 maybe 5 years and have become somewhat dependent on it for accurate routing whenever I thought we needed directions. In the past, one attribute of the program always annoyed me, namely, the strange text directions. I still read them a couple times, print them, grab a yellow highlighter and select the text that made sense. Then I augment the directions with my own notes in the margin. I could never figure out why msoft needed 5 instructions to tell me to stay on the same route. If you've ever used the product, you know what I mean. With this latest version, that problem/issue still persists but there's something new: errors and wrong directions!! I usually compare "fastest" to "shortest" routes. I have seen numerous cases where I had to trick the software to show me the most correct route. An example would be selecting the wrong direction off an exit of an interstate or even better, routing you in the oppposite direction to get to a road when there is a more direct route. I always update the traffic/highway info everytime. The GPS interface works fine; would be nice to have voices but I really don't miss that feature. Biggest impression: my wife and I have learned to not blindly trust it but rather we challenge every turn and pay very close to what it is telling us as we approach decision points. This year I almost went to Delorme but its reviews were even more disappointing.
