    VOICE + MS Streets & Trips 2006, MS AutoRoute 2006

    I know that most people on this forum would not use MS Streets & Trips or MS AutoRoute for navigation. The software is not good on a small carputer screen, it is not touch screen friendly, and there are more appropriate alternatives.

    Yet S&T and AR have been excellent trip planners and Microsoft added a lot of important GPS related features to the program last year. This year MS is going to do the same.

    VOICE has been number 1 requested feature since the release of 2005 version, and now it is finally confirmed this needed feature is going to make it into the 2006 version due very soon.

    Woohoo!!!! S&T has superior geoprocessing features when compared with iG, which is what I use at the moment. The lack of a touchscreen friendly S&T made me put it at the bottom of a very short list. Still, I rely on it for finding things, like movie theaters, that I wouldn't be able to find in iG.

    When st2006 comes around, you can bet I will start on making STmod. Because that looks easier to tear appart and integrate into a frontend than iguidance infact :P

    Oh yes! I don't think this version will have it yet, but 3D will definitely be my #1 requested feature (along with "normal" voice, because I'm afraid v.2006 will only have the ugly text-to-speech).
