Brand new from Staples but already outdated !!!??? How to upgrade ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    Just purchased S&T at Staples.  (99$ + taxes)

    Thanks Microsoft for not showing the version on the box !!!!!

    I didn't get the 2011 but the 2010 and the upgrade function is greyedout so i'am stuck.

    I got S&T because a third-party software product i was hopping to use is made to work with S&T but only with latest version 2011... So i paid 110$ for nothing !!!  Should have hacked the damn thing !

    Help says i have version

    Now what should do ????... btw i lost the bill for that purchase !

    Also, if i finally find a way to upgrade the software online, is there a difference between the GPS receiver in version 2010 and 2011 ?

  • Hi Tuthmosis,

    The differences between 2010 and 2011 are minimal as far as features (read this review), but you are missing out on the 12 months newer map data. You could try to go back to the store to exchange it, but it may not be easy without the bill of purchase.

    Which 3rd party software are you planning to use it with? Is 2010 really not going to be compatible?
