Opening old versions of Streets and Trips maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had an old version of S&T that I saved some maps in. The new S&T 2011 won't open them and the info says it will only go back to the 2004 versions. I think mine is a 2001 version map. Is there anyway to get the new program to open up the older version maps?

  • You may have to find someone with a copy of an intermediate version, or better, try and source one yourself. Eg. it sounds like S&T 2004 or 2005 might work. Load the file in that, save it in the intermediate version, and then open it with 2011.

    Where to find old versions? I've found eBay a good start, but you have to be very careful about legitimate versions. Only buy sealed/unopened versions. Third party sellers on Amazon may be another place to look.

  • Sadly I have this exact same problem.  I went to Europe and used 2011, I just tried to convert to GPX with 2011.

    Thank you, Microsoft, for not providing a way to even keep your "standard" file type able to read the exact same file type ten years later.

    I'm glad to see you offer the opportunity to export to GPS now.
