    Happy ( MapPoint ) 2006 !!!

    Hi,


    I paste this from another forum !


    MapPoint 2006 - New Features

    I just got the inside scoop on MapPoint 2006 new features:

    * New Advanced GPS Features - The new GPS task pane takes information about your current location as determined from your connected, compatible GPS device and displays your current location and the speed at which you are traveling.
    * Voice and Text Directions for Windows XP Users - New Driving Guidance takes your location from a connected GPS device and combines it with a route you have created to give you voice-prompted driving directions.
    * Updated Geographic and Demographic Data - Use updated geographic and demographic data sets in MapPoint to display trends and illustrate key points on maps.
    * Pocket Streets - Microsoft Pocket Streets makes it easy for you to create custom maps in MapPoint and then export them for use on your Microsoft Windows Mobile™–based Smartphone or Pocket PC.
    * Microsoft Location Finder - New Location Finder uses your computer’s wireless network capability and a database of known Wi-Fi access points to display your location on maps, even if you do not have a GPS device.
    * New Map Style for Low-light Conditions - New Map style for low-light conditions makes it easier to view maps on your laptop computer.
    * Virtual Earth Integration - Link off to MSN Virtual Earth online

    Don't confuse MapPoint 2006 with Streets and Trips 2006: http://blogs.msdn.com/mappoint_b2b/a...17/452410.aspx

    MapPoint 2006 is set to release in Q1 calendar year 2006.
    Ciao

    I was hesitant to post this because I have an NDA with Microsoft, but you're right it is public information now that an MS employee has posted it on a public blog

    Hi,

    I've just bought Autoroute 2006 and I was surprised to read in the license
    that Autoroute 2006 and Mappoint 2006 are Microsoft Trade Marks.
    Then, I made a simple google search and I've found the information
    shared here with MP2KMAG forum visitors. I've also seen the Mappoint 2006 price in some websites !!!! So, It is not a secret anymore . A lot of people here is impatient to have mp2006.

    Ciao

    What and where are you seeing for MP2006 pricing? Of course Eric knows but can't say.

    I've heard some fairly significant changes in pricing including a subscription based software update fee.

    Updated Geographic and Demographic Data - Use updated geographic and demographic data sets in MapPoint to display trends and illustrate key points on maps.
    Any idea what new regions will be available with 2006? (Like Australia and SE Asia, maybe) !

    You can order from me I'll try to match any price. I do know that if you happen to see a date "somewhere" :P of late Feb. it won't be true... it will be a couple months later. As I am a dedicated retailer for this product you know you will get it the soonest date possible.

    The guy who sold me MapPoint 2004 software was way off when he told me it would be released back in November. When you say it will be "a couple of months from that date"...do you mean a couple of months from when you posted this (Jan 2nd) or a couple of months from the end of February. Because that means four months away if you mean the end of February, so either you mean the first half of March or the end of April.

    Hi,

    I was present yesterday in a Microsoft Parteners seminar relating to
    Mappoint, close to th Eiffel Tower, in Paris. I had a good breakfast and saw interesting things. I believe that Mappoint 2006 will be ready in June 2006 (3 or 4 weeks before for the certified partners). You will have the summer holidays to play with that "joujou"!!!

    Ciao
