    Streets & Trips 2007

    Hi, I was watching tv the other night...and saw a laptop on QVC that was running Streets & Trips...I noticed that the whole map area pretty much blinked, and had a somewhat long refresh rate when updating the location of the receiver...what I mean is...the map would display...then turn grey for like .5 seconds...then display again....etc etc...is this really what this software does? Or was something messed up with their demo?

    Could it also be strobe effect between the refresh rate of the screen and the camera? It might look ok to the naked eye but bad on a TV when filmed by a camera. Kinda like car wheels in movies can look like their going backwards sometimes.

    Though I could see a strobe effect on the laptop...this was a very noticable lag (not like that of the strobe effect). It was like Frame1....gray...Frame2...gray...Frame3....gray... .Frame4

    Alright, I just picked up this software and it's cool...I have a few more questions. I noticed that there are some local restaurants that are spelled wrong (i.e. Thovys instead of Chovys....and Comadaro instead of Compadres)...is it possible to rename restaurants/locations? Also, I noticed some restaurants are way off on their locations...for example if you pull out of my driveway...and turn right...go a few miles...theres a red lobster...but on the map...it has you going left out of my restaurant to red lobster...is there a way to fix this?

    No, users cannot edit the database in S&T 07. You could let Microsoft and/or its map data provider know about the error, though.

    Is the address in the information balloon incorrect, or just the placement of the icon on the map is wrong? Are you talking about a restaurant you found through 'Find Nearby Places' feature, or via the new Windows Live Search feature integrated in S&T 07? I did notice some geocoding errors in the new WLS feature (especially here in Canada), but at least the address in the info balloon is correct.
