FreeSCAN 2.16 Available

Quote:
Whats New:
==================
-New: Support for BC346XTC (needs testing)
-New: You can now abort a download
-New:CSV Export now exports more fields including NAC and number tags
-Fixed: Google Maps function & Geocoding
-Change: No longer case sensitive when uploading systems and deciding which ones to replace
-New: "REC" indicator will no longer appear in virtual control if recording is disabled
-EZ Grab now recognizes digital & analog TGIDs
-EZ Grab for TGID has an improved algorithm
-Change: Simple View is now set to off by default
-Change: If you have too many errors during an upload, they are now dealt with more gracefully
-Other improvements

I didn't get everything done that I wanted to do with this version but have to release it in the interm at least to support the 346XTC. The System Plotter is down for the count until I rewrite it to use Google's newer APIs, and remote control still isn't available but its getting close Anyways stay tuned for more.

Tested the new version with a display 346XTC. Programmed without a hitch.

Thanks!

I would like for FreeScan to be more simplistic with the Easy-Grab feature. Such as an Asterisk as to which columns it might grab from say Excel to import for upload.

just an fyi

Turns out there was a glitch with EZ-Grab in the 2.16 version so a quick patch was done.

Not sure what you mean by this?? It tells you which columns will end up going where right above the grid.

No... if you read it all, my question was for the 2.16 'A' version not the 2.16 which I already had posted. Cpuerror did answer my question.

Thumbs up

Any chance you'll be reincorporating the blue shading circle to display the radius/coverage of sites? That was really handy to have.

Good work on this latest release; glad to see you're still perfecting an already excellent program.

If I didn't read this thread I wouldn't have known there was an A version, I upgraded to 216 and the Zip file is still named 216, maybe it should be renamed 216A.ZIP for those that already installed 216 and they will notice the A next time they visit the site.

You should have had a window popup when you ran 2.16 that their is a new version.

As mentioned in the release notes - Google maps recently redid all their APIs for mapping, so it's going to take some time for him to redo these features. I'm pretty sure this is what you're referring to...Mike

That's only true if you have the 'check for update on startup' box checked in the Edit / Preferences form

Don't know about anyone else, I got no popup window. I upgraded to A only because of this thread.

Thanks

any plans for freescan to work on the BCD 436/536 series scanners? Has always been the best software for the 396/996xt units.
