i work in a little company where we need to use mappoint2011 but here we get the evaluation version of 2011 but we found that the response time in 2006 is better than this version i try to find why, to decide if we buy the new version or no...

Hi and welcome to the site!

What do you mean by response time? The time to launch the application? The time for looking up addresses?

The main reason to upgrade would be all the new features introduced with MapPoint 2010, in particular the Map Settings pane, but there are also lots of new API methods between 2006 and 2011.

no it's the time for looking up for adresses in 2006 version we put 1 mn to find an itenerar but in 2011 we need more then 3 mn to calculate the some itenerary

I forgot this is European. I am installing MapPoint Europe 2006 now.

To calculate the route, on my 3 year old Sony laptop, this took

-- 6.8 seconds with MapPoint 2006, and

-- 31 seconds with MapPoint 2011 Europe.

Note that it's a little fewer kilometers with MapPoint 2011

-- 1,247 km with MapPoint 2006

-- 1,186 km with MapPoint 2011

Probably not a big deal, but it does suggest that the road networks are a bit different which implies another consideration -- the road network in MapPoint 2011 is newer. That is probably a bigger factor than the speed of the route calculation if you want to have an actual good route and directions.

thank you for your reply.a particular setting on your
I was surprised by your result that you send because our calculation time is much larger tahn 31 sec so i want to know if you use a particular setting on your laptop .
if we have 31 sec this perfect for us and our client will buy it but in 3 mn of calculation time our client is bothering us to resolve the problem , so do yu have an idea what's could be the problem ??

Probably the speed of the computer, I don't think mine is particularly new or fast (it cost $900 in Jan. 2010), but it calculated the route in just under 7 seconds with MapPoint 2006, and you said with MapPoint 2006 on your computer it took 60 seconds?
