CDXZipStream is now faster than ever when you update
your databases, so if you currently own 64-bit CDXZipStream, get the
latest version by just downloading the free trial available from the
website or from this newsletter's list of links. We also review
the one-year maintenance subscription available for both basic and

more efficient whenever you update your databases. If you
currently use the 64-bit, Bing-compatible CDXZipStream, you can get
the latest version by simply downloading the free trial available

If you are still using the classic 32-bit CDXZipStream,
you can obtain the latest version free with purchase of a one-year
maintenance subscription, which includes 12 monthly ZIP Code updates.
After signing into your CDXTech.com account, select "Buy
Data Update" from the account area, and once the purchase is
complete, you can activate the new version by downloading the trial.
Maintenance subscriptions are $39.95 for the basic ZIP Code
database and $129.95 for premium ZIP Code data; the premium data is
provided with premium demographic versions of CDXZipStream.
Maintenance Subscriptions for CDXZipStream
With the introduction of the 64-bit Bing-compatible
version of CDXZipStream late last year, we now provide a one-year,

It's also very fast and easy to install the monthly

Maps to Get Route Data
CDXRouteBing function of CDXZipStream uses Bing Maps as the source of
mapping data in order to calculate travel time and distance, and get
route directions. Route maps can also be created using this
function. For our current clients who use MapPoint as the data
source, this functions works very similarly to CDXRouteMP.
However, while CDXRouteMP performs calculations for driving
routes only, Bing Maps can provide time, distance, and directions for
walking and transit routes as well. CDXRouteBing also has an
autocopy feature that automatically provides data for an entire list
of locations. Here is a short tutorial describing how to use

subscription included with your purchase. If you would like to
