    The data is updated. That is probably the most important difference.

    Here's a summary of new features

    • Completely Refreshed Data
    Use updated geographic and demographic data sets in MapPoint to display trends and illustrate key points on maps.

    • New Advanced GPS Features
    The new GPS task pane uses information from your connected, compatible GPS device to display your current location, speed and traveling direction.

    • Voice and Text Directions for Windows XP Users
    New Driving Guidance finds your location from a connected GPS device and combines it with a route you have created to give you voice-prompted driving directions.

    • 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.

    MP2006 missing Census Tracts for Broomfield County, CO

    Eric

    If the data for MapPoint 2006 was refreshed why doesn't it contain the Census Tracts for Broomfield County, Colorado? If you could verify this it would be appreciated.

    Background: Effective Nov. 15, 2001, Broomfield County, CO (FIPS Code 08014) was created from parts of Adams, Boulder, Jefferson & Weld counties in Colorado. The Census Tracts from the "old" counties that were moved to make the new Broomfield County should have had their "county code" changed to 08014.

    It is known that GDT did not release an updated Census Tract file until January 2004 so this is the most likely reason it was not in MapPoint 2004. That however is no excuse for MapPoint 2006.

    Regards
    Jamie

    I don't think they are using GDT anymore, that may explain part of it?

    You might try using the Send Map Feedback for specific issues like this.

    Suffice it to say that in general the data in MapPoint 2006 is a lot better.
