    Hi cowanjohn,

    What do you do to create maps, import and export information for Puerto Rico? I been trying to extract Demographic info and it is not possible also i tried to import addresses for PR and they are not recognized but the address information are there when to click down at the street level.

    Do you use other software for PR.? I been looking around and the ones i have found are complicated to use and extremely expensive.

    Also, do you know how to extract demographic info for o0ne section of a Zip code and not for the entire Zip code?

    I have called Microsoft several time for these and other concerns and no one knows as unfortunately they are not very familiar with the Mappoint.

    Any advice?

    my email is maps@ndg-usa.com

    I went ahead and purchased 2011 anyway and came away very unhappy.

    There is no update whatsoever to the Census data. No updating from the 2007 estimates much less incorporating the 2010 data. Nor was there any change in the zip code database. To me, this lack of new data is inexcusabe in a newly released product. That's the reason I bought it.

    I tested a few files for matching at zip only level, and found exacty the same missing zips. Some are older zips, like 60484 that they don't have at all. The program also won't find any 00*** zip codes in a search, although I doubt too many people try to search or match addresses in Puerto Rico. The Zips do exist on the map, you just can't search or match them when importing.

    I also tested an address file of some 27,000 addresses delivery-point-verified by the USPS with all PO Boxes removed. The results were more addresses were not matched in the 2011 version than 2010. When the unmatched addresses were spot checked, it appears the reason is the address database contains duplicates. When the addess is located in the program's database it gets confused and won't select either address unless manually prompted to do so. Should be easy to fix, but they let it slip through.

    I woudn't want any reader to mistake my comments. I truly do like the simpliciy of MapPoint and I strongly endorse the program. However, Microsoft needs to apprecite loyal users like me in pricing and not insult us with updates like this one.

    Arrow Re: MapPoint 2012 Information

    Hello to anyone.

    I am new to this Forum. My job within the State Dept. has me traveling domestically 50-60% of the time, so I need a really good mapping tool. I bought a very good Garmin (nuvi 3790 LMT) and the Microsoft Streets and Trips.

    Although streets and trips is OK, I need a better map planning tool. I believe MapPoint is a good tool for that purpose (please comment and convince me). But do I wait for the 2012 version and when is it's planned release?

    I welcome all comments on this.

    Thank you.

    Steve

    Hello Steve and Welcome to the Forums!

    If you can, download and install the trial version of MapPoint 2011. It is fully functional and works for 60 days, should be plenty of time for you to evaluate it.

    Use MapPoint instead of Streets & Trips during that time. The basic mapping and routing functionality is the same, so you should have zero learning to do.

    I am actually thinking it's possible, unless you want to write macros and do programming with MapPoint, you might not see many new features regarding Navigation. But please test it out and let us know!

    That said, if you do want to write macros to automate things such as keeping in sync an Excel spreadsheet and your work in MapPoint, or automatically generating a route based on various parameters in the Excel spreadsheet using macro's, this is something MapPoint is very powerful at doing, and which is not possible with S&T.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Hello Steve,

    Test the MapPoint - IC-RouteManager - .
    You can download the AddIn. The Lightversion is freeware.

    Re: MapPoint 2011 Information

    our company bought 4 5 user pack editions of MapPoint 2011. Installed it on as many PCs. Now have replaced the hardware underneath an installation of Windows / MapPoint. This PC is replace - the old one no longer in use. How do I re-activate Map Point 2011. Do I really need to buy more licenses?

    You should not have to buy new licenses. Did you copies of MapPoint require activation? I think I've been told that you can usually activate up to 2 or 3 computers before Microsoft's Activation process actually makes you call in, so I would just try installing and activating as usual. If it doesn't let you activate, then the solution would just be to call in to Microsoft and explain things.

    Let us know how it goes!

    I don't think MapPoint 2011 comes with any built-in demographic data for Canada.

    Do you have demographic data from another source to import into MapPoint?

    Sorry I don't really know.

    How detailed do you need the demographic to be?

    https://www.google.com/search?&q=Fre...mographic+data

    I don't know if it get expensive if you drill down to say postal codes, but maybe the three-character postal codes are less expensive.
