Hello to all Members of the Board

I'm from Switzerland working in a Telco company

Why I'm here..I use Mappoint since 2004 quite often for business, but also for my hobby Geocaching and diving.

Hi Betty,

Welcome! Look forward to seeing our visitor from Switzerland. What city are you in?

Just curious how do you use MapPoint. Any issues or recommendations for the Wish List? Did you see any copies of MapPoint 2009 Europe before they pulled it?

Hi Eric thank you for your reply</PRE>
I'm from Bern, the capital</PRE>
Im using Mappoint to mark caches from Geocaching and divesites </PRE>
arround the world.</PRE>
My Geocache SW is gsak (www.gsak.net (http://www.gsak.net)) from there </PRE>
I do several queries (to find, found, archive,..)</PRE>
put them in the street&trips format and link the csv files</PRE>
to pushpin groups in Mappoint.</PRE>
Its good to know on which side of the river the cache </PRE>
is located before you starting for the hunt :yes:</PRE>
What I'm missing most are accurate maps. </PRE>
Lot of maps within Switzerland are outdated since 5 years </PRE>
or more. Australia on the other side has hardly any details</PRE>
nor road's. Even Microsoft Encharta showes more details</PRE>
I'll ad more wishes on the wishlist, but I'm wondering</PRE>
do you get any information back from Microsoft or are you </PRE>
in touch with the developers or program manager from Mappoint?</PRE>
Kind Regards,</PRE>
Betty Bossi</PRE>

I know the MapPoint Product Managers visit here frequently and do view the Wish List specifically, but I was just more curious about how you view the MapPoint product in general and what if any limitations you find for you work and hobby...

Yes, of course I think it's probably worthless in Australia. Have you tried the Virtual Earth / maps.live.com for that?
