    Re: Can MapPoint 2009 read maps from 2006 and the opposite?

    2009 can read earlier maps, but earlier versions can't read 2009 maps. How can it? 2009 didn't exist when 2006 was released. Also the map data changes tend to be one direction - more roads are added and few are removed between versions.

    The "auto load" when you double click on a map from an earlier version of MapPoint is a bit broken with MapPoint 2006 & 2009. It is much more reliable to start MapPoint, then open the file.
