The last version, Streets & Trips 2013 was released on July 1, 2012 with a new online custom ratings and reviews feature and Metro UI-style icons.  Despite previous reports that the 2013 version did not accept data from older versions, the 2013 version converts the old files for usage and the user can save them in that format.
Because of its accessible price point, both consumers and businesses used Streets & Trips as a navigation solution. Commuters used it to avoid traffic on their way to work, and families would plan long road trips, plotting out ATMs, hotels, gas stations, and points of interest in advance. On the business side, both delivery teams and sales teams used Streets & Trips to plan their routes to customers. Field sales reps used it for territory mapping and planning out sales routes when visiting new customers. Delivery companies would plan the fastest routes to drop off their packages.

I've got Mappoint 2004 and S&T 2010. S&T 2011 wasn't anything to make worthwhile to upgrade from the reviews so I'll see what is said about the 2013 version. What's on the web now are just regurgitation of the press releases with some screen shots in a few cases.
for the maps alone. It really is a pretty good piece of software for trip planning though it does have its warts. One I would like to see corrected is being able to start each day with a full tank of gas rather than it estimating the range from day 1. I know you can do a series of one day trips, but I may want the full route taht takes a few days to complete.
I agree, I'd like to be able to use S&T that way as well. Although I don't really use the fuel calculator at all, I do use the start day and end day times which results in needing to do a number of one day trips instead of one trip that covers multiple days.
I plan all my trips with M&S and just put in the start and finish, then I add stops in between and use the 8am to 2 pm driving time. It shows the end of each day and the start of the nest day for the while trip.

It shows the end of each day and the start of the nest day for the while trip. I agree that if you use a constant start and stop time that may work. It becomes a lot more difficult if you start one day at 8:00 am and want to finish at 2:00 pm, then the next day at 7:00am and finish at 5:00pm, and then on the third day start at 9:00am and want to be off the road 3:00pm. This is often the way we travel.
It's not a major problem as I've got used to creating one single trip and from there creating daily trips based on the projected daily stops S&T has calculated, adjusted to my actual known start and stop preferences for each day. It's just that there is no easy way to take all the individual, fully customized daily trips and merging them all back into a single continuous trip.
I don't understand your comment. "One day trips instead of one trip that covers multiple days."If you use the fuel estimator to guesstimate the amount and cost of fuel for a trip it calculates only from the start of the trip and doesn't take into account you probably refuel every evening to start the day with a full tank.
I always travel with one, and sometimes with a backup laptop. I do family & genealogy research on the road and occasionally do presentations using my laptop. I usually have no passenger, so leaving it in the front seat has not been a problem. Securing it in the front seat & angling the screen so I can see it has been a problem. I have run S&T and Street Atlas on short & long trips and have regularly had my laptops crash for no known reason, usually when I most need the navigation guidance. I have been using a new TomTom 1435 the last 6 weeks & have found it more reliable (strictly as a navigation aid) than my laptop, but the TomTom let me down last week in a crowded urban neighborhood I was visiting for the first time -- when I needed it most. My laptop & S&T got me out of there faster than the TomTom could come to its senses. I agree that S&T is great for trip planning. The TomTom doesn't come close.
Is this still up to date? Last time I bought Streets and Trips was in 2007 and I found the maps to be very outdated compared with Garmin Nuvis which were much better.I assume you are referring to the POIs listed under Show and Hide Places, rather than the actual roadways. I use S&T a lot when planning long trips, but don't rely on the accuracy of their POI locations.
Yea, I guess S&T is good for trip planning purposes but not so much while on the go / in the car. Good points.I like if for planning trips and used it in the motorhome all the time until I got my 660. Liked the biger screen but the 660 works great and the wife doesn't complain about the taable between us.
Not impressed. The main intersection between my town's main drag has some unusual on ramps southbound to the 4 lane limited access going through town - which has been the case for 30 years. I use this almost daily. S&T 2013 still will not route correctly through this interchange. The diagrams of the on ramps are correct, but S&T will not route using those ramps. Makes me wonder what other defects there are in places I haven't been to yet. I'll be taking it on a long road trip soon.

If I set up a route to take me to Detroit, about 20 miles from home S&T 2011 has me exit the highway and take a number of local roads and then takes me right back onto the highway that was left a little while before. I can add all the via points I want it does not change a thing. In fact it does the same on a highway in Mexico where again it has made up its mind and adding via points will not change that!STUPID!
Regardless how much MS will drop the price I will never buy MS S&T it again!Check to see which box you have checked on referenceses. (Shortest or quickest) it makes a difference. Mine will try to takde me on different streets but by putting in one or two via It always takes me the way I want.
Amazon is offering 2013 S&T for $25.99 shipping included, best price I've seen so far.Looks like Amazon has a sale on again. The version that comes with a GPS receiver is $44 with free shipping. Pretty good price if you ask me.
During your trial period, check the transfer of files to your unit...I have used several versions of S&T (that I like _)and have the 2013 version as well. I am not happy with.Since my Zumo is a Garmin based unit, there are issues with transfer of route files to the Unit...having to do with Time Zones. 041b061a72
