Birds eye view in Streets and Trips 2010
ArcticCat
First Merry Christmas,

I have been playing with my Streets & Trips 2010 for about 24 hrs now. Took a nice 80 mile round trip to the in-laws last night. I have a few questions.

Is it possible to view the map as a birds eye view instead of from directly above?

Also, when you go full screen view, can you bring up the speed and direction without bringing up the side window?

Also, I have yet to get my waypoints (push pins) to save for the next time I open the program.


Thanks,

Ken

Streets & Trips 2010, Navigation view vs. Map view

Yes, Streets & Trips 2010 does have "Birds eye view". Microsoft calls it "Navigation view". In earlier versions it was called "Perspective view". In most other navigation products it is called "3D view".

Awesome, thanks, I planned on doing some more playing tomorrow, now I know where to start.

Just for the record, guys, "bird's-eye view" is normally used to mean the 2D overhead view (map view in Streets&Trips). E.g. this is how it would look if you were a bird flying above of this part of the map.

I suppose the 3D perspective could be assumed to be a bird's-eye view if the bird was perched on the hood of your car ... or dive-bombing some poor pedestrian.

Yes, Ken, those kinds of birds we had in mind.

My wife had a close encounter with one of those kinds of birds when we took our daughter to SeaWorld in San Diego many years ago. It added some yucky white-ish highlights to her hair as it swooped past.
