Major bridge not in Microsoft Streets and Trips 2008

Is there a free update to include the Golden Ears bridge in BC, Canada? It just opened last year.

Version 2008 released in the summer/fall of 2007, which was at least a couple of years before the bridge opened. It may be included in the upcoming Streets and Trips 2011, if it's not in the current v2010 already.

It is not possible to update the map of your current version. The only way to gain access to fresher map data is to purchase a newer version.

It is not in S&T 2010 but will likely be in S&T 2011. It first shows with Garmin in CNNANT 2011.1 which also uses NavTeq data.

You would think that Microsoft would take into consideration major changes in roadway changes such as a brand new bridge. Smaller stuff like new subdivisions can wait and that's okay. Kind of hard to get accurate total millage for billing customer.

They can not add information like that until it is in the database of the company that provides the mapping data. Then it must be massaged to fit their own requirements. Whether it is a subdivision or a bridge does not enter into the equation.

If mileage billing is an important part of your business, maybe you are using the wrong product.

Microsoft has made the best possible choice for the consumer by staying away from the map data collection business completelly, and instead licensing the data from Navteq, a supplier of the (IMHO) most reliable navigable maps. It's not perfect, as this thread shows, but it's the best there is at the moment.
