Welcome to the CDX Technologies July
The new CDXZipStream Version 3 adds new Bing Maps
features for routing and mapping. The maximum number of stops
on a route is now increased from 25 to 100, and users now have the
ability to specify map size up to 10 times larger (and including more
detail) than the current standard map.
There is also now a free suite of apps on the Microsoft
Store that provide the same capabilities as our online website tools
for address and ZIP+4 lookup, and ZIP Code and demographic reporting.
Here are our latest blog postings:
Version 3 Release
The number of stops that CDXZipStream supports in a
route calculation has been increased from 25 to 100. This new
limit applies to both route distance calculations and optimization.
Bing Maps itself only supports 25 stops per route and does not optimize
stops. CDXZipStream now has the ability to overcome this
limitation by making multiple requests to Bing. We've also
updated our routing optimization and mapping to support this
increased number of stops.
Mapping has also been improved to allow the option of
adjusting the embedded map sizes in Excel and support the largest map
size that Bing Maps provides. This is over 10 times larger than
the current standard map. To adjust the map size, use the
CDXZipStream settings menu and select "Bing Maps Settings".
We've also taken steps to avoid label overlaps when a large number of
stop or points appear on a map.
These new features make our product competitive with
online solutions costing anywhere from 30 to $100 per month for route
optimization alone. Registered users of our latest product
version can get the new version free by downloading and installing
the CDXZipStream trial.
