Mapping Programs

I just noticed that Streets and Trips has been discontinued. I have been using an older version and got a new computer. I found one such program but thought it was a bit expensive. Anybody know of any?

thanks
ed

ed, sorry to LOL at you, but your message cracked me up. Someone asked same question couple days ago and a bunch of people replied use Streets & Trips or Delorme. I LOL because there is a bunch of FREE programs, that cost NOTHING to use, and yet people were posting up they spent $60 for one program or the other, or they spent couple hundred on some GPS deal.

I use Roadtrippers and it works pretty well, the price of FREE is really hard to beat. I can also use it on my phone, tablet, office computer, home computer, or friends computer, and all I have to type in is a URL to use it. Can click one button and automatically email my trip to anyone.

I have used Streets & Trips a lot, back in the 90's that was the premier program to have. There are several other FREE programs that are out there, just google around a bit, but everything is cloud based now, with the built in GPS in everyone's phone, hard to make money selling a programs that Google has perfected and gives away for FREE, just ask Apple.

It appears that one must have an internet connection to use Roadtrippers. I'm looking for a stand alone program that requires not internet connection with the exception of downloading it.

Ed,

Delorme is the only program I could find and they no longer support XP. If you want to stay away from the "cloud" garbage, and have a newer operating system, buy it while you can.

If you find or found something else, please post it. As my 2007 Streets and Trips becomes less usable I'll go back to paper maps.

I found a Delorme on Amazon last night that is a stand alone product not internet required. I ordered it. It was around $45 with taxes

I for one still use Streets & Trips 2013 version and to top it off, I also have this 2013 MEGA FILE, the size of that file is just 29,000 KB that includes any sorts of POI, the only one missing is the "kitchen sink" !

Here is the link for these MEGA FILE for 2010-2011 & 2013 versions

If yoy have a smart phone or tablet, look at coPilot Live. It stores all of the maps and does not require any kind of connection to operate.

You do need Internet to download it and from there you are on your own; it is a great app.

In days of old when I was not bold and worked 3-11 daily.

We used both S&T and Rand McNally I liked the latter better

So today I use S&T,,, I think my version is 2013 NOTE: there is a diffrence between fixed and mobile

R-M (The version I had on my computer) had some nice features but never got the speed right.. (Speed displayed on Computer NOT speed on Garmin GPS feeding it)

S&T never disagreed.

Way back un 1998, I bought my first GPS, a TOMTOM for just over $150. CAN taxes included; in 2010, I bought this mh and it included a navigation system docked on the same 7" screen as for my backup and side cameras which is also my radio tuner screen and would you beleive it, the GPS is a TOMTOM, so I'm most then familiar with my navigation system.
Today, I still have both of them, one for each vehicule and both of them just are keeping the job done, working perfectly and are updated with free downloads.
