Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 - Download
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Better coverage - dropped features 03/22/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 - Download

Pros: The 2013 version of S&T has more Points of Interest (POI) than previous versions and much more coverage of streets. Mexico streets and highway inclusions are vastly improved - to the point of including small coastal towns and campsites.

I use a Dell XPS Win 7 Pro laptop and connect to a wireless bluetooth GPS device with S&T 2013.

Next remote travel trip will be to Alaska and the Yukon territories.

GPX files - imports GPX files correctly.

Cons: Microsoft dropped the "return to previous" screen button. So if one clicks a button by mistake it is no longer easy to return to the previous screen. Loss of a nice feature, that.

Microsoft also dropped the ability to draw a zoom box to zoom down into an area. . .now you have to repeatedly click the magnifying button and hope that you have the screen properly centered.

Other Thoughts: Saved files are not compatible with older versions of S&T
If you have S&T 2013 on your desktop and S&T 2011 on your laptop - you will not be able to use 2013 map files on the 2011 version.
2013 will import older S&T map files.
