Microsoft Autoroute 2011 Available


Wow!  After waiting over 3 years for MS to update 2007 to 2010 version, they have released the 2011 version already.  OK we know the maps aren’t as up to date as your satnav, but for laptop based planning purposes the laptop software is great.  Judging by how many download my Autoroute POIs then I’m not alone!

Autoroute is Europe and Beyond for detailed road maps, you can also upload our GPS databases to plan route for aires, ACSI etc - see our database download pages. Use for offline maps or full GPS tracking/routing

One of my friends (Adam – http://www.europebycamper.com/ ) has the 2011 version already, and says “The 2011 version is the difference is night and day for Romania – there are roads connecting the dots (villages)!”

So especially if you are planning Eastern Europe, get the new version. 

If you don’t have Autoroute – GET IT – it is superb for looking at POIS on your laptop. 

If you have Autoroute 2010, I’d only recommend an upgrade to 2011 if you use it for GPS navigation, or indeed you are going to go to “new Europe”.  For typical western Europe, and simple map viewing with POIs, then the 2010 version is still okay to use.
