The USFS has renewed the Avenza Pro License for 2018-2019!
Attention Avenza Maps Pro Users:
Information about the new Avenza license keys will be released soon, along with guidance on how to update your Avenza Maps Pro account using the new license information.
11/15/2018 –New (2018-2019) Avenza Pro license keys will be issued.
11/30/2018 –All existing 2017-2018 Avenza license keys (both permanent and temporary) WILL EXPIRE.
Users who do NOT update the Avenza application with the new license key by 11/30/2018, will no longer be licensed or have the Avenza Pro functionality for use.
The dates listed above, will allow users an adequate transition period to update their Avenza Maps Pro account with their new license information before current license keys expire. New guidance will be posted to the Field Data Automation – Mobile Computing SharePoint site.
In the meantime, users who have not done an “account update” within the Avenza application, may be losing access to Avenza Pro license functionality. Some users may experience their loaded maps becoming “inactive” for the “recreational only version” due to the transition with the renewed contract. This can occur if Avenza hasn’t been used while connected to Wi-Fi since the expiration date was changed.
To correct or avoid the issue:
Connect mobile device to Wi-Fi
Go to Settings à Account Details, and confirm that the Expires Date = Nov. 30, 2018.
