There are two types of licenses for the 2012 OS maps. You can purchase on CD which gives you the full map and allows use on up to five devices. The other option is the download version which is purchased by square kilometer. This activation is limited to the activation of a total amount of area. If you have, for example, 25,000 sqkm of activation and activate 5,000 sqkm on five different devices, this uses you allotment (regardless of duplication of an area on more than one device). This is per the license agreement with the producer of the map.
Thats not wat it says on the page here http://shop.memory-map.co.uk/acatalog/m ... lorer.html
It says "Choose your own maps", "Buy credit", "Use on up to 5 devices"
It doesn't say anywhere use on 5 devices if you buy it on a CD.....
As you pointed out in your previous post, the standard features give you five activations (hence, five devices). This is, in fact, no true from the standpoint of all licenses now five you "resources" vice a full license on a single computer. As such, if you don't need printing (or GPS, etc.) on this computer, you can save that feature for another computer. In that way, if I use GPS on my laptop, but don't plan to print from the laptop, you have that feature to use on a desktop (where you are less likely to use the GPS feature).
