Microsoft Streets & Trips 2008 with Connected Services is available today for an estimated retail price of US $179.95 with a one year MSN Direct subscription. Subscription renewal is available for a one time payment of $59.95 or one additional year subscription at $39.95. The version without the MSN receiver (with GPS) is available for US $99.95 and the software only version for US $39.95.
Microsoft asks a premium price for the GPS version of this software. In comparison Street Atlas USA 2008 from DeLorme costs US $69.99 (read our article here) and offers the spoken name of road or exit in its voice guidances. DeLorme embeds a STMicro chipset instead of a SiRF StarIII for Microsoft which probably makes for a part of the price difference.
