    MapPoint 2004 - simple question

    Did Microsoft finally include a way to get updated map data more often than buying the new version every 2 years For example can you get update info like you get construction info.

    They did not with MapPoint 2004 and I doubt they will -- except: MSN MapPoint and Streets & Trips have lately been updated more frequently. It is not clear whether there will be a MapPoint 2005 or if you would have to wait two years for MapPoint 2006.

    Note that they way the data is highly compressed and packaged, I gather it's a big undertaking to "compile" a new release of the data, I doubt it would be as simple as the construction updates.
