As a special service to purchasers of Discovery Walking Guides' digital maps, the first conversion of each of these maps does not require registration.
Registration is 15 British Pounds. Registration is valid for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The price includes Email support and all future versions. Registration is personal : you can use it on any machine. Please email if you need licences for multiple use.
In Britain and countries outside the European Union you should receive a key immediately. Issue of keys for EU customers is a manual process and may take up to 24 hours - but is usually much quicker.
My liability is limited to the price paid.
