Conflicts with older Versions:

- You can run PathAway 3 and PathAway 4 at the same time with the following exceptions:

- Projlib.prc is not compatible between V3 and V4. If you install PathAway 4 and want to run PathAway 3, you will need to copy the appropriate Projlib.prc for each. Its best to just run the install program for whatever version you are running. Thie issue does not apply if you are not using Datums other than WGS84 or Projected maps.

- Deleting the PathAway3 Application from the device will delete all of your data as well. We'll be providing a proper PathAway 3 remover utility soon.
