There's a point when all good things must come to an end.
MapPoint is being discontinued on 31/12/2014.
Across the United States and Europe, MapPoint has been a trusty companion.
But it's time, and we're sad to see MapPoint go. MapPoint is 15 years old, having been first released in 1999. The product grew out of a 1988 blockbuster designed by four UK developers who bootstrapped it with other jobs. They released the beta to a few journalists in 1988 and it spread like wildfire. The original consumer product, MapPoints was a hit and went on to be the #1 consumer product for many years both in Europe and the U.S. Click here to read the full backstory.
You can buy MapPoint until 31/12/14.
