    Upgrading from 2003 to 2006

    Hi,

    I'm about to upgrade from 2003 to 2006 and am wondering what's changed for the ActiveX version? What new features are there? Does the new version handle road closures? Does it give me the speed limit for a given road or segment of road?

    Are there any coding changes I'll be forced to make? Or are they optional?


    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi,

    Added are a method to get location object from UK Ordnance Survey Grid reference, also exporting for pocket streets was introduced. In 2006 the location object has also lat/long properties, and there is a night map style.

    That's it more or less for programming point of view. Speed limits, no, and as for your other question, I dont know. I hear no complains from customars so I think it is ok.

    Hi Bob,

    It is with green/blue colors to view the map in dark places.

    See attached.

    It is designed for safe driving at night, the colors that way to minimize the adjustment your eyes must make glancing down at the screen and back to the road.
