I spoke with an MS representative recently at an Office Depot and asked him about Streets and Trips. He told me that the sales department was more interested (at this time) in getting ready for the Windows 7 "Three Licenses for One Price" sale that they will be putting on soon and that Streets and Trips would come later, probably after the New Year.

Of course, perhaps he really didn't know what was happening? Or maybe he decided not to tell me the truth for some reason? But that is what he said.

MS Streets and Trips 2011 sometime after January 1 ...

Thanks Ken. I'll give it a go then. Cheers, Bit

Sorry to pop the bubble, but I found a S&T 2011 Construction Update on September 7, 2010.
Marvin Hlavac
The construction is available each year well before the release date of the product. The product group very likely makes the construction update available so early not for the public, but rather for their own testing of the new version.

I wouldn't try to predict the ETA of a new version based on the availability of the construction data. But the construction data at least tells us the MSFT guys are likely working on the new version.

But it's been a while, so lets see if any update appears on S&T Facebook page one of these days.

We should start a pool to guess when it will be released. A dime a date, closest pick wins the pot. I'll take the March 15th.

And I'll bet the delay is due to contractual/financial issues with NavTeq, nothing to do with marketing or development.

Larry, congrats! And thanks for breaking the tradition of silence, and letting the world know the ETA in advance. The following is from the S&T Facebook page, a post by Anne Quaranta:

It's hard to keep a secret. Actually, for several years we had pretty much the same release date but this year we ran a bit long. Thank you to everyone for being so patient. It won't be much longer now.

Can you tell us what's new and exciting in the 2011 version or do we have to just wait and see?
