The Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 software is mapping at its best - with upgraded maps of the United States and Canada, 150,000 new miles of roads, more than 2.5 million points of interest, and customer ratings and reviews of businesses along the way to take the guesswork out of deciding which is the best stop to make along the way, this software package does everything but the driving itself.
The software also includes features that import Microsoft Outlook contacts into maps (to easier locate key contacts when on the road), spoken street names and directions, and customization of start and stop times, driving speeds, and road types. Add point of interest modifiers that are unique - big-rig friendly gas stations for your RV, or low clearance warnings - to help you take the safest and most enjoyable route to your destination. You can also connect your GPS locator (sold separately) and track your location on the map.
Personalize the maps to add notes for planned stops, reservation details, and key phone numbers. Worried about surprises and delays along the way? You can download free construction updates and easily drag-and-drop your route to bypass delays. Streets & Trips 2013 is the perfect travel companion.
