Spades Flush:
Thanks for the reply. I did not know that. You learn something every day -
Can you explain how and where I should try to import it to ?
Thanks,

I believe Garmin makes devices that can receive imported GPX files and there are probably others.

Thanks again. I think I'll just go back to what I have always done to get the waypoints into MapSource so I can download to my GPS.

Streets and Trips 2013 is now available in the Microsoft Store: www.microsoft.com/streets/en-us/how-to-buy.aspx

Download a freeware program named RouteConverter and try opening the GPX file with it. It will be able to figure out the file and will show you where you drove on the map as well if you have an open internet connection.

It looks like all the 2013 changes are for the better.

But does the EULA still restrict installations to two? That's a problem for me as I would want to be able to install on a desktop, a laptop, and a UMPC (3 installations) which would require 2 licenses and I would have difficulty valuing these enhancements at $100.

MapSource can open gpx files directly. Possibly there is something wrong with the one you have created, Flannigan. Maybe you could attach it here.

SpadesFlush, Here's the portion of the license agreement that relates to your question:

Quote:
a. Licensed Device. The licensed device is the device on which you use the software. You may install and use one copy of the software on the licensed device.

b. Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.

Still not touchscreen friendly... Until it is, I'll stick with the 2009 version I currently use.

Thanks, Marvin. That still only adds up to two. As I use two "portable" devices, it would seem I need two licenses.

Malaki, perhaps touchscreen-friendly in Win 8? Or on different hardware? I use S&T on a UMPC and it is touch-sensitive.

Thanks. I'm going to try that tomorrow.

Bing map areal image on the right. I've never seen this type of detail in S&T before; these are not roads, these are just lanes within a public parking lot
Marvin, this detail is available in the 2011 Version and I think even before that. It's not necessarily available everywhere though. Since I'm an RVer I regularly investigate and create trip files to RV Parks, and have found a lot of the RV Parks showing up with the detail you referenced in my 2011 product. Also true with many parking lots as mentioned. Hopefully 2013 has enhanced the map to show even more of this.

So did RouteConverter work for you? It should have given you a read of the file and the ability to output to the unit you wanted it exported into...
