The new version of S&T will be hitting the shelves in time for XMAS. In addition to updated data, the new version breaks new ground for trip planning and navigation software by tightly integrating online local search results with mapping and navigation capabilities. It also significantly enhances the navigation feature set with several improvements such as a “full screen mode” to enhance the driving experience, a better performing and sleeker hardware puck (featuring the latest SIRFIII technology), improvements to rerouting and additional navigation improvements such as drive times and reverse routing.  Lastly, we made the first significant investments in tailoring the application for ultra-mobile PCs, so that as that platform begins to emerge in CY07 we have a winning offering to attach to UMPC sales.

You can preorder on Amazon or pick it up in stores on October 12. And, yes Autoroute 2007 has the same features and will most likely be available a week later.
