    How to find out issue date of installed maps? Was easy on 8.06 but gone on 8.14

    How to find out the version (issue date) of installed maps on 8.14?

    I have my personal collection of maps on my mobile. As they are from different regions, they have different issue dates. E.g. I am running now the Sygic Maps 2010.09 TeleAtlas, plus the Russian map I got the link from this forum plus some 2009er Asian maps.

    With SMM10 v.8.06:
    finding out the details of each installed map was easy: Go to “settings” and then at the end take the sub-menu “about Sygic Mobile Maps 10”. On the info screen that appears now just clicking/press the button "Copyright" and you get a list of all installed maps with details such as version number, version date etc.
    Today I upgraded to v 8.14 and

    With SMM10 v.814:
    after going to that menue and clicking on "Copyright" I no longer see a list of all map – details. Thats gone, it just shows a long legal text Bla Bla.
    Note: Everything else is working fine also with v8.14: I am using TA maps with different issue dates and from different regions of the world, with the simple standard malwee-world mlm. The only thing is: Now I can no longer see on my mobile, which map version I have installed.

    Has anybody noticed that and knows where to find that info now on 8.14?

    Always remember this - it is the maps that tells the stories - not the version.
    Do not simply update - cos there is a newer version.
    Have to check whether the maps works with newer one.
    Choose what is the reliable for you. No errors and pains.

    Vendors are seeking opportunities to protect their software and maps.
    So it is best to find the reliable working version for the maps.
    And not have a version that has to find maps.

    Till now I am still using v7.71
    reason - it can be edited to your requirements easily

    There is some confusion with map versions.
    Sygic must buy data from map provider and spend some time to compile maps. Thus we have two timestamps - date of map release from Sygic which is stored in mlm-file, and database version which is kept inside pak-files. Sygic made latter information visible in 8.06, but immediately people start wondering why date in Copyright screen is older than map release date, so Sygic has removed this info from 8.14+.
    If it is important to you then use 8.06 to browse real map provider date, but you won't see it in newer versions.

    Thx chnav for this explanation!
    Clear.
    Purpose for using that info was to keep myself up to date which map version I have in use on the mobil. Might simply go back to 8.06

    Differences in versions is graphics properties.
    Better graphics in higher version
    But if your device cannot support - will be lack in everything

    Maps tells the stories not versions.
