    I am looking at Microsoft streets & trips for $40. I have a GPS, but it does not allow me to enter multiple addresses and plan the shortest route. I was wondering if & what everyone else was using? Thanks!

    I have Street & Trips 2006 and like it for some things, but it does not have all the advanced features I would like it to have.

    A couple things that really bug me about the program are
    - It is difficult (but possible) to import addresses from excell
    - it always builds the route with a preference of left turns over right.
    - maps are not up-datable, and not that recently updated to begin with
    - requires much faster computer than what it says on box

    Overall it works pretty well, but I will look for something better before buying again.
