    "no good to me"

    July 14, 2011  |   By tanner9595

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    when working the trial seemed ok even though it did not work for the entire 60 day free trial.

    Cons

    trial stopped working the first few days, paid for the full version and it would not load after entering the key. after hours of reinstalling, and configurations I called for refund.

    same issues with map point stopped working after a few days

    Summary

    for me i like this software when its working. i would blame my system, but if this software wont work right and others something needs more attention and i am running a new computer.

    "Nice interface, my wife is able to run it to navigate."

    March 25, 2011  |   By waynebittle

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    Will recalculate trip if you must go off route while traveling.

    Cons

    Is not up to date on several roads we travel although I don't think this is a fault of S&T but a database deficiency.

    Summary

    Does a pretty good job of route planning and navigation with a gps.

    "Bogus download"

    February 20, 2011  |   By Bedfordbiker

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    Simple to use

    Cons

    The 60 day trial is a farce-if you close the program and open it again it demands the product key. I have spent a lot of time trying to deal wtih MS-they are basically unresponsive-hard to evaluate software that only runs once and can't be reopened.

    Summary

    Might be worth the $40 SRP if, and only if, the eval copy actually worked. It takes over 30 minutes to uninstall and reinstall it each time you want to open it. Microsoft won't deal with the non-working issue. I downloaded it both from CNET and from MS - neither copy will run more than once. Maybe if there was a way to let it actually run for 60 days I might buy it. Another program I downloaded from MS (MapPoint) actually does intall and run correctly using the eval version. Someone at MS (programmer???) forgot to tweak the code and as ususal, MS is acting totally irresponsible and like they don't understand simple English. I guess I'll stay with my older program. It's funny, the amount of time/dollars MS has spent on sending me stupid emails with non-working suggestions is costing them more than just giving me a product key. I don't mind paying for the software if I want to keep it - that's only fair.

    "Good product, easy to handle"

    November 29, 2010  |   By doublejf

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    I like all the informations given but ... see below

    Cons

    They have removed the rubber band search in the 2010 version which was very useful for me.

    Summary

    I still like the product I simply have to work with my 2005 version and also with the 2010 version. If there was a way to make my 2005 version work combining the 2010 version, please let me know.
    Question: If a buy the 2010 version from you, will I get the CD's also?
    Thank you for your answer.

    "It is nice to have maps when you're NOT connected."

    August 3, 2010  |   By davidcford

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    Accurate maps. Self contained.

    Cons

    Activation is a pain because if often fails. New interface is more cluttered and for me harder to use. Earlier, simpler versions were better. Wish there were more options for highlighting businesses/places.

    Summary

    I own all the previous "Streets" but 2009 which is installed on my computer keeps saying activation required even though I've done it twice. this usually happens when I'm on the road in desparate need of a map. Argh. If Microsoft fixed this problem I would have bought 2010. Now I'll look for something else.

    "I still have Streets 2006"

    July 7, 2010  |   By DanSeery

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    did not need it

    Cons

    streets 2006 still great

    Summary

    My 2006 was still good, did not need to spend the money for 2010. However, if there were an update for 2006 making it 2010, I would consider it

    "Unable to install on Windows Vista"

    April 17, 2010  |   By msecour

    Version: Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

    Pros

    Since I have been unable to successfully install I have nothing good to say.

    Cons

    I've given up trying to install. The first download produced "unexpected errors." 2nd download "installed" but the program will not open. Error message: "Registry settings were not copied correctly. Reinstallation yielded same results. Have given up.

    Summary

    Would love to hear from others who have been successful with installation.
