For those of you who like to keep up to date, a new version of OziExplorer (for Windows PC) is available updating to version 3.95.5s.

Now supports internet maps such as Open Street Map , Google Maps and USA Terraserver Maps within OziExplorer.

Hello Bill

Thanks for heads up.

Specific changes/bug fixes for each version are detailed in the History of changes link on the Ozi website. In this case (version 3.95.5s) "changes" are:
______________________________________________________________________
Added support for Windows 8 internal GPS using the API (experimental support was in the previous version).

Windows 8 GPS API does not provide speed or heading. These are calculated from position data and time so may not be as accurate. Windows 8 GPS API does not provide satellite info. You must turn on the GNSS Device (the GPS) in windows settings.
You must turn on the "Windows Location platform" in Control Panel Location Settings.

Fixed issue with BSB kap files converted with img2ozf.

Fixed issue with importing mapinfo raster maps with tab file and geographic (lat/lon) projection.
_____________________________________________________________________

Internet maps have not been updated at all. Been as is (except for some bug fixes) for a few years now (~2010)..not sure why they promote it as "NEW".

Cheers
Greg

Hi Greg,

It is usually yourself that alerts us to updates, etc. but in this particular case, I was actually using Ozi to research some map detail and I received an alert via the application that an update was available.

Very clever I thought.
