    Bad street data for S Florida introduced in MP2006

    Prior to MP 2006, street names were displayed correctly, but in MP 2006, all major streets in Ft Lauderdale area omit street names & use numbers, i.e. "NE 24th Street" instead of the correct street name.

    Is there a way to find out if this is being corrected in future versions, or some kind of fix. I've had to re-install MP 2004 to find my way around.

    Doug, you could find out if it has already been corrected by checking other Microsoft mapping products: Microsoft Streets & Trips 2008 or Live Local Search. However, the online product may not be a reliable indicator of what may come in a future version of MapPoint, because the online product uses map data from sources not used for MapPoint.

    Thanks, Marvin. Live local search has the same errors. It just amazed me they could have it right in one edition, and then screw it up in a later one, to the degree than it's almost unusable for the Ft Lauderdale area.
    Obviously, I need to find out if it will be fixed before I buy the next edition.
    Doug
