Rancho Cordova, California, March 20, 2018
Sendero GPS 22 is thus named to celebrate 22 releases since we introduced accessible maps and GPS. Over the lifetime of Sendero GPS we have had many adventures – some of you might remember Sendero’s WayFun trips and various scavenger hunts at conferences. If you are interested in taking a trip down memory lane, please visit our travel blog to revisit those adventures.
All great adventures are also bound to have at least one challenge, and the journey of Sendero GPS is no different. Over this time we have had to convince many of the value of accessible GPS, negotiate low cost map contracts and even in the very early days there was the threat of the government reinstating selective availability.
Over the years we have experienced no compatibility issues with the map conversion software, which has been discontinued for years. However, in 2017, even though we added new features we also experienced some map compatibility issues where maps are unable to create routes through certain areas and in some places hundreds of duplicate POIs. The Sendero GPS 22 release fixes all those compatibility issues on all the Sendero GPS products, Sendero PC Maps and GPS, BrailleNote and BrailleSense.
Customers who are experiencing map or POI issues with the 2017 release can contact Sendero Group directly at to request a free upgrade to the current release. All other upgrades, no matter which version you have, will be only $22, a fraction of previous upgrade pricing.
Note that 2016 maps for KeyMaps are the last available maps as HumanWare will not be updating KeySoft.
Updates to all products are best managed from your Sendero Maps software on the Windows PC, which comes free with new BrailleNote GPS or Sense Nav GPS purchases. This is by far the easiest way to upgrade as well as an excellent tool to use in conjunction with your PDA or mobile device such as Seeing Eye GPS for the iPhone.
