Product Description

Combining the power of GPS location technology and powerful, easy-to-use Microsoft mapping software, Streets and Trips 2005 GPS Locator is a back seat driver you'll always want along for the ride. This complete navigation package consists of two parts. First, the software-- which is compatible with your PC, Pocket PC device, or Smartphone-- puts essential driving information right at your fingertips.

Meanwhile, the included GPS receiver lets you turn your laptop or Pocket PC into a powerful GPS route-finding tool. The GPS unit pinpoints your exact location within the mapping software, offering an unprecedented level of control over your route, while giving you the real-time guidance you need to make your journey smooth and safe. The unit comes with a USB cable, so you can simply plug it into any USB-capable PC laptop and go.

Streets and Trips 2005
With Microsoft's advanced mapping software, you can easily find the route to that new restaurant across town, or to a vacation spot on the other side of the country. The software is designed to make planning and customizing your trips easy and fast.

the software comes packed with 5.4 million miles of local, city and highway roads across the United States and Canada, plus 1.8 million points of interest such as hotels, ATMs and restaurants, and other services. And because road conditions change frequently, you can avoid lengthy detours and delays by downloading current road construction information before your trip-- for free, of course.

While Streets and Trips has great basic mapping capabilities, a number of additional features make it really stand out. Easily customize your trip planning by specifying how many stops you want to take and when, or use "snap-routing" to make quick routing adjustments right on the map screen with a few clicks of the mouse. Plus, the software can show you how far you can travel in a given amount of time from anywhere on the map-- a great feature for planning side trips along your route. You can also optimize your route to find the most efficient ways to reach multiple destinations, while the fuel cost calculator predicts how much you'll spend based on your driving habits and the current cost of fuel. Lastly, drawing and annotation tools offer simple ways to add information to your maps for quick reference. Dress up your maps to your heart's content with arrows, text, highlighting, freehand drawing, and more.

Streets and Trips isn't just for your PC. The package includes Pocket Streets for both Pocket PCs and Smartphones. Now you can have access to your maps on all your devices, without any need for an internet connection.

GPS Locator
When combined with the Streets and Trips software, the GPS Locator brings your maps to life by displaying your exact current position and direction in an integrated "GPS pane" that is part of the Streets and Trips interface. The GPS unit also features GPS tracking and routing capabilities, which are especially useful when you get off track from your pre-planned route.

The GPS Locator comes with a USB cable for quick, easy connection to your PC laptop.
Should you make a wrong turn, the GPS unit's "GPS trail" feature leaves behind a virtual breadcrumb trail that shows you where you've been on your map, and makes it easy to get back on track. You can also use the handy "Re-route from here" command to quickly revise your directions and get back on your way to your destination-- a great feature for folks who like to take unexpected side trips.

The GPS Locator is designed to be easy to use with your laptop computer. Simply plug the included GPS hardware receiver into your laptop's USB port and you're set. If you already own a GPS receiver and want to use it with Streets and Trips 2005, the software's configuration wizard can help you quickly configure many third-party receivers. Because the GPS Locator has a modular design, the unit is also designed to be compatible with other portable devices. For instance, with proper accessories you can turn the unit into a wireless Bluetooth receiver or a CompactFlash/PCMCIA connected receiver. This gives you the flexibility to connect the GPS Locator to other mobile devices such as Pocket PCs.
