Microsoft is releasing its 2009 version of MapPoint with European maps. the last version of AutoRoute 2007 was released in the fall of 2006, and the map data is getting a bit dated. MapPoint may be a suitable alternative for some old AR users.
I downloaded my copy from MSDN downloads, but MP09EU should be appearing in stores soon, if it is not in stores already. I thing the original ETA was January 2009, but it may be in stores earlier.
I just posted my first impressions of MapPoint 2009 Europe
. Perhaps my only disappointment is that no new countries were added to the European coverage, and to the functionality of the Find feature.
