    Worse than useless, will get you lost

    The common places i.e campgrounds are more often than not shown to be miles from their actual location, ( up to 45 miles away) causing you to get hopelessly lost. You pretty well have to find the nearby place you are looking for then do a search on the address that nearby place search gave you and map that location as a pushpin and add the pushpin to your route. This problem did not exist in the 2005 or 2006 version however appeared in the 2007 version. I sent dozens of e-mails explaining and documenting the problem with the 2007 version. They said it would be corrected in 2008 and they have not been. I returned the 2008 version withing 24 hours and Best Buy refused to refund my money despite the fact that the product does not work. They would only issue a gift card in the amount of the purchase.

    Good, but not perfect

    I purchased this edition to upgrade from the 2006 edition. As is typical, "up-to-date" means the data is about two years old. My subdivision, created in the summer of 2006, is not indicated in any way. Several new portions of interstate 40 near Greensboro were opened last year - under construction for four years - and are not included, while a segment of I-73 that has not even been started is shown as complete. I don't use GPS, so I can't comment on it. The thre D maps are interesting and can be useful.

    Can't manage without it

    I work in trucking and use this program daily to give directions to drivers. For my personal use as well, I would not think of traveling without it and my laptop. No internet program can top it for speed and ease of use.

    Got my first Streets and Trip back in 2000 and I upgrade every year or two and this is the best so far. I just wish MS would include 18 wheeler rounting, other then that a great maping software.
