    That is correct, these maps are specially compiled for integration within Centrafuse XLE, and any retail Desintator maps will not work in the commercial version of Centrafuse.

    Upon checkout, if you select Centrafuse XLE, an option appear to choose the maps for your region.

    Not that I've seen.

    David has said that D 4 & 5 maps won't work and has stated a couple of times that some sort of concession will be made for those people that already have Destinator 6 maps. Reagan's statement clearly implies that you will have to buy specially compiled maps for CF - there's no hint of any rebate/discount for current owners.

    Also, (like I said in the Flux Media thread) a couple of people just this week have gone out and bought Destinator 6 retail with the intent of running the maps in CF.

    WHAAT ?

    Did I missed something ??? - Microsoft Office and many other programms reveal their internal functionality as a COM component to other programms - So If I sell "my programm(which accesses COM)" my users also have to buy Office (a normal license!!!) - so its in interest of Microsoft to offer a COM Interface !



    I start to hate this crap Navigation-programm market... but MS comes and will wipe those crap out I am sure - Its not a real wonder that Billy is sooo rich !!! HE has the right concepts !


    David:
    do you have to pay something for the COM Object (per Client which uses it) ?
    (anything additional to the normal GUI Destinator License)
    If yes I will let the guys at Destinator what my opinion about that is .
    (expect the 50 Euros for the SDK Docs and registration)

    hmm so this will mean if you have already bought destinator 6 with maps, u will have to buy it again for CentraFuse?

    That would be a shame!

    FYI:
    The Destinator SDK that Centrafuse utilizes for navigation was specially developed hand-in-hand with Destinator engineers, and is much more than just a glorified COM object. For this reason, the cost of the SDK licenses are actually higher than the normal 'retail' (or GUI) version of Destinator. The maps are incompatible because the Destinator retail version is not the same product as the SDK. Destinator does not offer a solution that encompasses navigation and entertainment, that's where we come in.

    Raygun - another developer at fluxmedia... okay...
    How much are you ?

    SDK:
    What is this then ? http://www.destinatortechnologies.ne...ducts/sdk.html

    With Destinator3 or 5 or something - I manged to create the COM-Object on my machine... I also looked into the SDK Documentation of this... and noticed that it offers the complete business logic of Destinator... It offers an objectual representation of the current calculated route for example. Just like any other COM-object like Word or Excel. An Object for representation of the current TMC messages was missing I noticed...

    (What else more does CF need from Destinator than an ActiveX Object ? I will not develop my own frontend although I am able to do it - I think we have enough Frontends which are usefull more or less)

    Raygun:
    May be you were kidded by Destinator ?
    Developing changed since the time of the Commodore64 so every good program should be componentized and should offer its business logic component as COM object to other programms. (This component should be planned and used from the beginning of every programm)

    Do you mean the "x86 compiled" version of Destinator ?
    I had looked at the .NET framework for mobile devices and its integration in Visual Studio and this looks pretty easy for a dual version. (PDA and x86)
    I think the x86 version is also needed to compete vs. Travelbook and such.

    If you (Fluxmedia) want sell maps with CF then this is 100% okay (and I would everyone encourage to do it so) ! Or If you fear gurantee topics with it (users using own maps getting problems)
    than just state: "We don't gurantee anything if you copy your own maps into it".

    The benefits from Fluxmedia (viewed from Destinator) is just a sell of more licenses ?

    (BTW: thanks for your answer!)
