  • SEEKING RECOMMENDATIONS/ANSWERS REGARDING UPGRADING EXISTING 2003 ISSUE OF STREETS AND MAPPS.

    HAVE JUST PURCHASED THE 2010 ISSUE OFF E-BAY AND BEFORE EXECUTING ITS INSTALLATION WONDERING

    IF SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS WILL BE NEEDED OR WILL THE 2010 ISSUE AUTOMATICALLY INCORPORATE PREVIOUS FILES FROM 2003 EDITION INTO DATABASE OF NEW EDITION?

  • Streets and Trips 2010 has all new maps. It does not use any files delivered with Streets and Trips 2003. If you customized the NEWNORTHAMERICANMAP file (or whatever it is called) you will have to do it again.

    The 2010 version will be able to read the *.STT (trip) files you created with 2003, BUT IT WILL MODIFY THEM so that they are no longer usable by 2003. Files created by Streets and Trips 2010 CANNOT BE OPENED BY Streets and Trips 2003. If you need to continue to use both version of Streets and Trips you will need to take care to maintain a 2003 version and a 2010 version of each trip file.
