This is unacceptable. If they pulled the new version because it had bugs, why not put the old one back?
This is the problem with all these apps forcing an update. It removes your option to keep running the old version if it works better for you.
If I'd paid $50 for a program, I'd expect to be able to run it for as long as I want, and update ONLY when I want to and when I can be sure the new version is not only stable, but is an improvement. Oh, and, for $50 I'd expect it to work flawlessly the first time and every time.
It boggles the mind that, of all things, a navigation
program (!) can just up and fail because the vendor screwed up, and that they haven't immediately remedied it.
For a program made to be used out on the water
, on a portable device, to expect a full-time, high-bandwidth network connection for it to work right is absurd.
