Welcome to the CDX Technologies September 2020 Newsletter



We cover the release of CDXZipStream Version 5 with new geocoding and routing functions that work with the HERE API. 


Here is a link to our latest Blog postings:



CDXZipStream Version 5 with Here API Support     


We have just released CDXZipStream version 5. This now includes support for worldwide location data from the technology company Here (www.here.com). Two new CDXZipStream functions have been added, CDXLocateHere for geocoding and CDXRouteHere for distance calculations. They will be active in the CDXZipStream Bing version or better.


Here offers a "Freemium" Plan that allows up to 250,000 free requests per month. No credit card is required to sign up at developer.here.com and receive an API key. Additional requests can be purchased at 1000/$1. This is a significant benefit when compared to the 125,000 requests per year for Bing Maps and pricing for Bing enterprise keys. Higher usage accounts are also available from Here.


For more information on the update please check out the following video.

For existing users of CDXZipStream the new HERE features will be available to anyone who has purchased in the last year or anyone with an active data maintenance subscription.   You will need to download and install the latest CDXZipStream version 5 and reactivate your software using the "Account" button in the CDXZipStream menu. If you don't reactivate you will not have access to the new features. This will not affect the number of computers that you can install CDXZipStream on.


CDXZipStream customers without an active data maintenance plan will be able to try out the new Here functions but will be limited in the number of requests they can make during a single excel session.   Your online account at cdxtech.com can be used to purchase a maintenance plan and get full access.
