Once again Microsoft has released new versions of MapPoint and Streets & Trips on the first of September. And yes, again the map data format has remained unchanged -- meaning the data from this version can be used to update older versions of MapPoint or Streets & Trips. Users of APRSpoint or UIview (via the UI-Point plug-in) may be interested in the free "trial" download of MapPoint 2010, which can be used to update data in older versions of these programs.

Excellent work as ever Stephen, thanks for the updated tutorial. 73, Mike
In the three hours (before midnight Eastern Time when my web stats reset) since I posted the page at 6 PM Pacific, there have been 24 hits on the page.
I expect many more by midnight Friday 4 Sept EDT, when the full impact of simultaneous posts on the APRSpoint list, the UIview list and the TAPR APRSsig list late today start having full effect (including the second half of the evening 3 Sept Pacific time which misses the midnight EST cutoff).
- Your process work fine.
However, I have a file in the data directory "USAARTS.ITS".. any idea what that is for, and if it can be deleted.
It might be interesting to see what files you should end up with in the data directory.
Thanks for your excellent work on these updates.
