The Benefits of GPS

The GPS device allows you to track your route in real-time in an easy-to-read full screen display with simple, easy to locate navigation buttons.

All New Software Features
Meanwhile, new features in the Streets and Trips 2007 software make your planning more productive and your trip more enjoyable. The new Live Search feature lets you find current business listings when you're online, then take them with you.

Whether you're running errands or planning a cross-country road trip, Streets and Trips 2007 offers customizable maps and information on more than 1.2 million points of interest (POIs), such as restaurants, ATMs, museums, campgrounds and more. Online or off, Streets and Trips 2007 provides updated maps that give you accurate, detailed door to door directions and puts 5.9 million miles of routable roads and highways throughout the US and Canada at your fingertips. While you're driving, verbal turn-by-turn directions let you concentrate on the road while the software guides you. Customizable trip planning features allow you to plan multiple stops, find nearby places to visit, calculate drive time, and more.

Taking advantage of the enhanced trip planning software is easy. To create a route and generate directions, you simply type in the starting and ending locations and click on "Get Directions." It's that simple. Your trips can include multiple segments, and you can instruct the software to customize your route by telling it what types of roads you want to travel, how much gas your car has, and the general area where you want to stop to gas up. Streets and Trips 2007 will do the rest, giving you your optimal itinerary, down to the precise gas station. Overall you'll have access to over 1.2 million local POIs such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations and ATMs, and by planning ahead, Streets and Trips 2007 will help you avoid delays with construction updates and other recent changes to your route.



Track yourself in real-time with an easy-to-read full-screen night display.
Microsoft's "Locate Me" technology uses Wi-Fi hotspots to pinpoint your location, so you'll know precisely where you are as you're traveling. If you drive past your planned exit, a single click will get you back on track. The "Re-route from Here" feature quickly recalculates directions if you miss a turn.

To find a certain POI, such as a restaurant or gas station, you simply select from 35 POI types to display on the map. You have the option of searching within a certain radius of an address that you choose, your current location, a specific direction within a planned route, or all of the POIs along the entire route. Your results are displayed in a directory-tree listing. When you click on a POI, a balloon box pops up on the map with detailed information, including an address and phone number, and if you right-click on the POI icon, you can add it to your route list. Personalize your maps with drawings, notes, and pushpins to mark important information. You can also import your contacts directly from Microsoft Office Outlook and Microsoft Office Excel.

Support You Can Count on
And best of all, once you register your software, you can access a full year of email and toll-free customer support, and you'll also have access to an online knowledge base dedicated to Streets and Trips 2007. So no matter where you're travels are taking you, you can drive with the confidence that you'll have Microsoft's extensive support and software behind you every click of your odometer.
