Here's a list of some of the new features for PathAway GPS 5 Professional Edition:

- WebMaps: Support for downloadable seamless maps.
- New Transparent Dashboard. See the entire map even with a loaded set of Dashboard items.
- New "Finger Touch" UI. Uses icon based drill down menus. Main navigation screen is always live while the transparent menu options are displayed. This is to allow the user to choose menu options while on the move and still see where they are going.
- Profile View: Elevation and Speed Profile of current Route.
Increased performance and better responsiveiness- Fast screen refresh with background data processing. No need to wait for screen refreshes.
Scale Zoom In and Out: More responsive Zoom In and Out. More zoom increment levels.
- Dashboard; Item Hide/Show now just hides the item (doesn't remove it completely, so you can simply "Show" it when you need to)
Dashboard XXL Font.
- More Dashboard stats like Time/Dist (useful for timing sports and training activities, ie. 5 min per km).
- Trip Management. Keep your Tracks, Points and Routes together for a specific Trip. Especially useful for Importing and Exporting GPX or KML files. Create Trips, Drag and drop Routes, Tracks, Point databases into a Trip file.

Favorites Options for "Finger Touch" UI. Can Add any item to Favorites menu.
- Point Info is now Html based. Basic info is implemented now. Richer formats will be added including imported html from GPX files.

The language option is also displayed on first-time startup. Included languages are English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Czech, Portuguese, Chinese Simplified and Traditional

Thank You for this terrific new version of PathAway! In a few days I will be using this on a cruise from Singapore to San Diego to chart my progress while sailing aboard the Holland America Line flagship ms Amsterdam.

One question: I understand the upgrade from PathAway PRO v4 to v5 is free if we purchased v4 after May 1, 2008. I bought my copy of v4 later in, my question: will the v4 UNLOCK code be the same for v5? Or do we need to request a new unlock code to ensure our v5 copy is unlocked? Just wanted to make sure before I get out into the middle of the ocean!

If we need to request an new unlock code, what procedure do you recommend?




Ooooppppsss. I just figured it out......I need to just enter my v4 reg code at the purchase point and the rest is automatic. Embarassed



FREE Upgrade to v5 worked like a champ! Another VERY HAPPY PathAway user here!
Very Happy
