Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 Review

microsoft streets & trips 2013

About a month ago, Alan and I took a trip by car to Michigan to visit his family. I haven’t visited Michigan often, let alone drive there so I am not very familiar with the roads and what not in that area. Thankfully, I had the trusted Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 program by my side to help guide me and provide safe travels.

Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 is the newest edition of America’s #1 best-selling map and travel planning software. It is specifically designed to help you and your family plan the perfect business or pleasure road-trip from start to finish. The program generates maps and directions that can be customized with start and stop times as well as an area to add notes for things such as reservation numbers or operating hours. What is great about Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 is that it works without an Internet connection as the information for over 2.5 million points of interest are loaded directly into the program! When using Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013, you’re bound to get the most efficient route for your trip which helps you save on fuel consumption as gasoline prices are through the roof these days. And in case you get lost, the program also helps you find necessities such as ATMs, hotels, auto services, restaurants and more.

Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 got me safely to Michigan without incident and I plan on using it for my upcoming (possible) trip to Arizona in a few weeks to visit Alan’s best friend. Microsoft Streets & Trips 2013 is available for purchase online at the Microsoft Store for an estimated retail price of $39.99 with GPS locator available for $69.99.

    Nice review. There is so much for consumers and business in this low cost yet powerful mapping and navigation tool!

    For business users – uploading your own account data (thousands of pushpins), Search a radius or along a route for prospects, Optimized Routing and birds-eye aerial imagery when connected to the web just scratch the surface to the benefits of Streets and Trips.
