I just got mine today, since Friday when I placed the order.
And I got this bit of "news" as well:
Apparently you can only use full sized maps for development with the $50 SDK, and even then the DLL will expire eventually. No word on whether or not there will be an extension or if this is the way it's supposed to be.Attached you will find the file. It is used by developers to enable them to use full sized maps during development. It allows them to test applications in their local area. It does expire in August.
Not knocking them because it's their business model, but they make it really hard for people to stay legit with this thing if that's the way they're doing business.
