View Full Version : mappoint 2004 new version 2006?

Mappoint 2004 maps are not very useful in Italy.
Route 66 and/or car navigation sistems are better.

Can we hope about a new version ? (mappoint 2006 ?)

Yes, I think you will start hearing news in the next few months.

MapPoint 2006 is suppose to be release November 7, 2005.

Is that date published on the MS website?

No, it isn't on their website. I could be wrong, which is why I said supposed, however I probably should rephrase it. Personally, I don't think it'll be out on November 7th, but that is just what I was told by a person who sells mappoint software. I can't be 100 percent sure. I'm hoping it will be out in less than a month, but something tells me that it is going to be delayed.

My guess is early next year... in the past I received beta's and RTM copies before the release, nothing yet with this release although the product manager has changed.

How do you get on a Beta list for that?

Actually I heard there's no public beta this release.. I'm not actually sure there was a public beta last time either but I think I remember being sent one for MapPoint 2004.
