Global Show/Hide Pushpin Information & Pocket Streets
Baja Boojum
It would be nice to have a toolbar button that toggles all the pushpin text bubbles on and off, instead of having to go to each pushpin and right-clicking.

I also agree that Pocket Streets was a great feature- bring it back!

Over the years I've heard many users of Streets & Trips, and also MapPoint, wishing for an easy way to turn on/off pushpin info balloons. There is an add-on for this available for MapPoint (PushpinTool), but that's not an option for S&T users. So, for what it's worth, I add my one vote for this feature suggestion.

I don't think there is a chance MSFT will resurrect Pocket Streets. Since the product discontinued, I've read a lot of good feedback on Pocket Streets, but while the product existed I heard very little positive talk about it. There was always a lot of negative online discussions about Microsoft not adding new features to Pocket Streets, and how it paled in comparison to other PPC PDA GPS software, etc. There was so much of the negative talk that I was actually glad Pocket Streets was discontinued, since the negativism reflected badly on the main S&T product.
I would like to see this same feature. I've got it using AutoHotKey but it's a pretty manual thing and not pretty.

The new S&T 2010 can toggle hide/show pushpin sets and it can also toggle hide/show all pushpin balloons: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/2380-review-microsoft-streets-trips
