STREETS AND TRIPS

streets-tripsWhy would anyone buy “Microsoft Streets and Trips” when they can get navigation aid from their cell phone or GPS device? It turns out users still like it for trip planning and route optimization.  This is especially true if you’re planning a route with lots of stops and don’t mind having a laptop in your car to run the program. Since you don’t need an Internet connection, the searches are lightning fast.

New features in Streets and Trips 2010 let you share the details and itinerary with friends. The program is $40 and you can add their GPS device for an extra $30.  Lots more information can be found at Microsoft.com/streets.
