Hi, folks,

Please go here:

And get this:


Release Notes:

Version 4.71.04 - "Single Track"

* Fixes bug with using the Irish major roads map to open county maps
This applies to any region where they use the form "County X" instead of "X County" in naming their counties.

Version 4.71.03 - "Sea Train" - 27 April 2006

* Fixes cosmetic bug in Color Settings window which failed to consider DST when showing the times of dawn/dusk
* Fixes bug which prevented the satellite display from updating while waiting for a fix
* Fixes bug setting the default value of the "Use GAPI" option which had been incorrectly turned off by default for most users
* Fixes cosmetic bug where the text “GPS Not Responding (COMn:)” would not fit entirely on the display. This has been shortened to “Not Responding COMn:” and the font size has been reduced.
* Fixes tab order on GPS Options window

Version 4.71.02 - "Laika" - 25 April 2006

Some of these may apply to Smartphones...

* Adds new option to "[X] Use GAPI for Video Performance" in order to turn off GAPI if undesired. It is not possible to turn on GAPI if it is off by default.
* Fixes incompatibility with the WM5 GPS applet control panel so that virtual ports now work in Mapopolis, including GPD1
* Fixes bugs in the data validation for GGA sentences in GPS data
* Fixes GPS dead zones along 1 degree south latitude, and 1 degree east longitude (no longer uses -1 as an error code)
* Fixes bug which caused the PPC title bar to appear at the same time as a Proximity Alert message box
* Improves error handling for GPS "zero" data
* Shows "GPS Not Responding (COMn:)" over the navigation pane, instead of "Not Responding"
* Improves speed of data validation used for setting the clock from GPS data
* Increases diagnostic build life from 14 days to 30 days from when they are built.
* Changes "[X] Blink LED at Index [list]" to "Select LED or vibrator [list]" with the added list option "NONE" to disable the feature in the absence of the removed checkbox
* Changes the Set Clock from GPS Data feature to allow the clock to be out of sync by up to 2 seconds from the GPS (to improve performance/speed issues).
* Fixes incorrect window title on the Sounds Settings window

But these definitely apply to Smartphones...

* Fixes bug which caused the language selection box to become broken when using left/right D-Pad keys to change the selected language
* Fixes cosmetic bug in the Edit Landmark window which drew the icon slightly outside the allocated box

VERSION 4.71.01 - "Learning to Fly" - 6 April 2006

Some of these may apply to Smartphones...


* Restructures backend of Landmark and Street/Address searching (search result data management)
* Enhances Find Contacts
- searches by zip code when possible
- searches by city when possible (fixes bugs)
- automatically searches unopened maps for the address, if not found among open maps
* Enhances alphabetical sorting to sort by distance when names match in Find Address, Find Intersection, Find Place or Business.
* Enhances Text-To-Speech to recognize "Ext" as an abbreviation for "Extension"
* Enhances the speed of Finding Contiguous Maps (from >20 minutes to <4 seconds with 1GB of maps), and replaced the related status window with the standard animated wait cursor.


* Changes default option for "Set Clock from GPS" This is now OFF by default.
* Moves the Map Colors Settings window contents to the left (cosmetic change)
* Changes the Set Clock from GPS Data feature to do nothing at all if asked to change the current year

* Fixes bug with mismatched "On or Near Street" text showing incorrect information in Find Place or Business
* Fixes bug that allowed the last-entered Find Address search to affect the Find Contacts search results and default data shown when Find Contacts fails and opens Find Address
* Fixes bug with horizontal scroll bars not scroll list-view contents
* Fixes cosmetic bug in the display of Dawn/Dusk times to include padding zeros, as is the usual tradition when writing the time
* Fixes truncated text "Show Automatically requires GPS" which should now fit entirely on the display
* Fixes truncated text in the warning message about duplicate map files
* Fixes bug in error message which would incorrectly say that a voice file did not exist when the real problem was something else, such as a lack of memory
* Fixes bug that showed "x/y/z" in the status box window
* Adds data validation for GPS time stamps, to avoid using wildly incorrect time values to set the clock such as all-zeroes, or day 32 of a month, etc
* Fixes potential buffer overrun error in the Set Clock from GPS Data feature
* Fixes cosmetic issues with the size of the list boxes in Hardware Settings and Find Place or Business/Landmark windows
* Fixes bug when starting GPS, either manually or automatically, which failed to honor the option to Retry Failed Connections forever
* Fixes bug which would show the GPS Diagnostic message when tapping on the menubar - it now checks for the upper AND LOWER bound of the Not Responding strip for this screen tap response

But these definitely apply to Smartphones...

Great - another beta cycle already

Nothing much new for me to check, I wasn't affected by any of the bugs fixed.

But I hope there's a mistake in the change list: "Krouw" is NOT female in Danish, it's not a Danish word. Probably, this is a fix needed for Dutch, so I hope that's where you fixed, otherwise you will need to fix it back again for Danish.

Best regards

Hi, Allan,

I voted for "Vrouw," but what is it really? I'm going to mangle this, but is it "kvigen?" (This is in the voice selector.)

With 4.62 beta1 using PPC (Mapopolis_Pocket_PC_v4.62_Setup.exe), I got mapcopy.exe crashing on WinXP during installation.

Putting the files on SD card, it installs to '\Storage Card\Program Files\Mapopolis' instead of '\Storage Card\Mapoppolis'

Hi, mr_ding,

We'll be discussing Pocket PC in the thread in the News section, and we'll be doing Smartphone discussion here.

If you'll run the installer again and manually point it at the folder on the card, it will install without crashing further.

You're right - it was DUTCH, not Danish.

Hi, I am using mapopolis version 4.62. Every time when I tried to find an address or an intersection, there is a popup window 'Should not occur error. Code=1-183'.

Anyone has any suggestions?

Hi all, one very minor problem I have been experiencing ever since upgrading to the C550 is a misplaced Mapopolis icon...

Not earth shattering but as you are into a new beta I thought it would be worthwhile pointing this out.

On my old E200 the icon is dead centre.

Hey guys, I have found a problem that comes up practically everyday. I have tried to replicate it after the problem occurs but I cant.

I am using the 4.64 beta SmartPhone version. I switch on in the morning, start Mapopolis, this connects to the GPS and the map is always north up. If I press Menu, Settings, GPS Options the Centre view Forward box is ticked so I untick the box then re-tick the box and press Done and hey presto the map is now track up.

I have tried to replicate this many times but without joy but when I start first thing in the morning the map starts moving north up.

I had this problem with my PDA, exact same thing and what it was was me changing some settings on the GPS itself with Sirfdemo. Once I reset the GPS back to factory defaults Mapopolis went back to "direction travelled" up rather than North up all the time.

Specifically I turned on the WAAS setting on the GPS which is a Holux SlimGps236 unit.

Thanks rp1790, I just have the plain old TomTom BT GPS and I haven't changed my GPS settings (don't think you can on these units anyway) but if I run the 4.6 (official release version) it always reverts to track up its only on the 4.64 this problems happens.

Hi, guys,

Just a note - the Palm Treo 700w was announced yesterday and Verizon is offering it for sale today. Palm has gone all out on their website to promote it, too. Coolest feature? Looks like the revised Today screen is the biggie.


I know the voices aren't real, but what they say ~does~ make a lot of sense.

Not wanting to sound like I am blowing my own trumpet

But this is what you call a fully loaded Today Screen or Home Screen

Hey, no fair! You have a big screen model. The Treo 700w has a 240x240 screen like the HPs. I like the look of Palm's version - enter a number or part of a name for the dialer at the top. Appointments, email notification, SMS, etc in the middle, and Google search at the bottom. Want to talk about uninspiring? You should see my MPX200. (Yes, I still ave it, and yes, it's still ticking... on the original battery, too.)

if I say so myself, me to.

Everything I need in one place, Date and time, a decent and free calendar plugin, next 5 days weather for 6 cities, GPRS usage (daily/Monthly) and system information.

It took ages to get it all on one page but I am proud of it
