Microsoft Streets & Trips, known in other countries as Microsoft AutoRoute, is a discontinued[2][3] mapping program developed and distributed by Microsoft. Functionally, the latest version is a subset of Microsoft MapPoint targeted at the average consumer to do a variety of map related tasks in the North American region including the United States, Canada, and Mexico, such as route planning.

The European version is marketed as Microsoft AutoRoute and covers all of Europe, including European Russia, as well as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Cyprus and all of Turkey. AutoRoute is also produced in several European languages besides English.

Streets & Trips 2006 and later versions install the new text-to-speech voice, 'Microsoft Anna', which is part of Windows Vista, onto Windows XP computers for the voice-prompt direction feature. Version 2006 of both Streets & Trips as well as AutoRoute is the last version for Windows 98 / Me and version 2007 is the last version for Windows 2000.

Version 2008 (and older) included 336 pushpin symbols. The new version 2009 replaced these symbols with a new set of 46 pushpins. The Streets and Trips user community thus created a default map template[4] wihich has the 2008 pin set in order to re-add them to the program. The former pushpins were restored in the 2010 version with updated visual styling.

Streets & Trips 2009[5] adds pronunciation of street names, as part of the voice directions prompts. The map of Mexico now includes street level data of even small towns, but the address-find feature still has not been enabled for there.

Version 2010 [6] adds hide/show pushpinsets, hide/show information balloons, import/export GPX files, export to GPS navigation device, export to mobile phone, and 348 new pushpin symbols were added, the majority restored former pins as mentioned above.


Version 2011 [7] is mainly a database update adding 88,000 miles of new mapping to the program and the removal of support for the ending MSN Direct service and coupon data, while allowing direct map correction feedback to maps provider Navteq and the addition of cardinal direction guidance and alternate road names to direction data. This version came out in February rather than the traditional August/September release date. No reasons were given.

Version 2013 has been released as of July 1, 2012.[8]

A version of the product was sold with a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver to allow users to use the product as a satellite navigation system. Since version 2008,[9] Microsoft started requiring Product Activation for Streets & Trips.[10]

On July 7, 2014, Microsoft announced the discontinuation of Streets & Trips. Although Microsoft continues to provide mapping solutions as apps for its Windows operating system, Microsoft will provide online support for current users until July 14, 2015.[11]

All versions of Windows 10 include a free GPS-ready mapping app similar to Streets & Trips. This can be used offline, though the map data must be initially downloaded before use on a state by state, province by province basis. In the U.S. and Canada, actual (not calculated) residential and commercial street addresses are included. Voice navigation is provided to GPS-enabled devices. The drawing tools from Streets & Trips have been removed, however.


Originally released by NextBase Ltd in the 1988,[12] a UK company, under the name 'Autoroute', it was sold for DOS based PCs and later for the Apple Macintosh, Atari ST and Psion PDA. In the early 1990s it was ported to the Microsoft Windows operating system. The company created a version for the United States called Automap Road Atlas which it sold through its American subsidiary Automap Inc. in Bellevue, WA. In 1994 the product was sold to Microsoft. Microsoft combined the Encarta World Atlas Mapping Technology with new routing technology derived from Autoroute to create Automap Streets/Streets Plus and Automap Road Atlas/Automap Trip Planner products. These were produced under the Microsoft Home division and were later branded for a few releases as Expedia Streets and Expedia Trip Planner. After Microsoft spun off Expedia, they were merged into a single product called Microsoft Streets & Trips 2000, newer versions of which continue to be produced today in the USA. In Europe the Autoroute brand was retained. In 2000, Microsoft also developed Microsoft MapPoint as a business mapping program based on this technology. The technology was also used in MSN Maps which later became Bing Maps.

Streets And Trips


Despite previous reports that the 2013 version did not accept data from older versions, the 2013 version converts the old files for usage and the user can save them in that format.
