Software

 

The detailed mapping software is provided by NAVTEQ and Netropa. The detailed mapping software is as accurate and detailed as possible. Whenever maps are digitized, there is still a possibility that some inaccurate or incomplete data can be found. It is because of these inaccuracies that the WGPX is a travel aid and is not intended for precise measurement in navigation or aircraft use.

Differences between manufactured and shipped versions of the software may be present; this software may be updated frequently. If the descriptions in this manual are different from your software version, please follow the software version currently on hand.

Software Use Terms

Copyright laws protect the WGPX’s operating system and internal mapping software. Whistler’s wMap mapping software is copyrighted by their respective owners. Please carefully review the software agreement information enclosed in the Whistler’s wMap Mapping Software User’s Guide.

Note: By opening the DVD package you accept the terms and conditions listed in the agreement. Once opened, the DVD package cannot be returned to the place of purchase.
