Well, I honestly thought I'd like the whole Road Shapefile thing in GR3 the best, but it turns out, I don't. With the convenience of the touch screen I can easily swipe back in forth between GR3 and either Map Pro or Street Atlas (which I’d like to also run). Plus when you're in GPS mode, your position shows up anyway... I too have a CD/license for Streets & Trips, but it’s installed on my laptop, and I don’t have an external drive to try and remove it and load unto my tablet. Oh well.For those of you running Windows 8.1, I found an interesting app in the Store called "Maps Pro"
They're touting it as the replacement for S&T.
Reviews are mixed. But, for the little I've played with it, it may become a viable option. Especially those
considering a tablet, If I can work it with my fat fingers, It has possibilities.
I did run into the issue that Nick Nolte talks about here (http://www.nicknoltewx.com/blog/2013/03/15/gps-devices-in-windows-8-apps/) with the driver for the Metro Maps (Maps Pro) on the Surface Pro 3. You absolutely have to run this software found here: http://www.turboirc.com/gps7/ in order for it to work with GPSGate. Nick said when he got it, it was free. It’s now $10.99 for the download payable by Paypal.
It took me a few minutes to tinker with the set up (and a few texts back and forth with Nick), but ultimately this solution fixes the issues for them and I believe for Street Atlas as well. I’ll let y’all know what I find out. I thank Nick for this post on his blog. Check it out, or for the sake of time, if anyone needs to be walked through it, feel free to give me a shout.
