    MS Streets & Trips 2003 and 2004

    Hi!

    Does anybody know if MS Streets and Trips ties into a GPS recevier in any way. I'm currently looking into the 2003 & 2004 versions. I also was wondering if anybody is currently using any of those versions? How they like it?

    Streets and Trips came with my Dell PC. I haven't tried running it with my GPS connected yet. I'll go try it tonight and let you know. If I remember right, it does have GPS capability. I just don't like it as a mapping program as well as Street Atlas.

    OK, the version I have is 2002. It has a GPS option but my Earthmate is USB and S&T is only looking for a com port. So it won't recognize it. I would think the newer 2003/2004 version should handle it.

    There was another post discussing the new version.

    OK,

    I bought the 2004 version and my GPS is a door to door ver 2.0. It is com port and ps2. We'll see what happens when I get it.
    It would be funny if mine only works with USB.

    Take Care,
    Peter

    Hi!

    Well, I tried it and it sure works well. The read me that came with the software says it will work with any NMEA compliant GPS. I guess the Co-Pilot 2.0 is compliant. I have to say that after about a half hour of trying it out, I didn't like it as much as the software that came with the Co-Pilot but it does have a nice listing of restaraunts (sp). And you can increase the font size of the maps and driving directions. I'll probably use both in time.

    Take Care,
    Peter

    Streets and Trips.... My experience:

    GPS works great with my On$tar Hack. Refresh rate is kind of slow, but there is a Software patch/hack to change it. Exact address matching on map overlay is not so hot. Shows my house about 200 yards from actual location. Delorme Street Atlas Shows right on.

    Map always shows north up. Can get a little tricky trying to navigate by map while driving. There are no navigational prompts like Delorme.

    Streets and Trips is very easy to use for searching addresses and directions. You can easily import data from Excel spreadsheets, etxt files, and even your Outlook Contacts list. You can make different pushpin data files and show or hide at will. Much easier interface than Delorme Street Atlas.

    No voice prompts, nor Voice control.

    Hope some of this info helps.

    Where can I find this patch/hack to upgrade the refresh? That's my biggest pet peeve
