Terrain Navigator and Windows Vista

DISCUSSION

We have done some testing with Microsoft's new operating system, Windows Vista, and found that Maptech Terrain Navigator seems to function properly. However, because it was designed long before the introduction of Windows Vista, it may require to be run "as administrator" or in "XP compatibility mode." Terrain Navigator is also not able to take advantage of the proper locations for program files, and other items that are now obligated in order to be fully Vista compliant.

We have updated Maptech Terrain Navigator Pro to be fully Vista compatible. It does not require to be run "as administrator" and is fully compliant with locations for file storage.

While we are not planning on making these changes to Terrain Navigator (standard) at this time, we can offer special upgrade pricing to customers who require these Vista-compatible features. Any customer with Terrain Navigator (standard) who wishes to upgrade to Terrain Navigator Pro 7.5 for Vista may do so for $199.95 (per state or CD region.) To receive this discount, please call us at 888-839-5551.
