MapPoint 2010 - How to update the ZIP Code file... RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do we get an updated zip code file?  I have 38 good addresses that won't post properly to maps because the zips don't exist. 

    And anyone know if a new version is coming out soon?  MP 2010 came out in Jan., 2009, so we're about ready, right?

    Thanks, all!

  • There has not been a solid release schedule, sometimes it's been almost three years (MapPoint 2004 to MapPoint 2006 to MapPoint 2009) then almost less than a year between MapPoint 2009 and MapPoint 2010. Speaking of which, MapPoint 2010 was definitely the most substantial new release in terms of new features since at least MapPoint 2002!

    I'd imagine it has to depend as much on politics and strains of thought within Microsoft's management hierarchy as it does the economics of the product. And maybe even more so on the Product Management Team or contractors who might a case to them to get the GO light. (Just my two cents :-)
