    Curiously, Here apparently no longer creates fjv files for the USA and Europe (except for Russia).
    These files do not work on Nextgen, only on Primo.
    New fds files also only run on Nextgen.
    They would be discontinuing the updates for Primo, what would be the reason ?

    Really, which is "better" depends on what device it's running on. To me, Primo is better suited for older WinCE devices since they are lower resolution and have less processing power. Currently, I don't use a GPS app on any Android devices, so I have no interest in NextGen, but NextGen is probably better for modern, higher-resolution Android devices. I tried NextGen on my cars WinCE system and really disliked it (slow, buttons were too small for car use, etc).

    So they each have their place (in my opinion)...

    Huh? Last I checked .fjv works on NextGen. Why would you want to use .fjv when you can use the better .fjw on NextGen? You mean the opposite, .fjw require license to work on Primo? Currently, the .fds only run on ONE Nextgen version that I know of and no chance of having it on Primo/iGO. You don't need proggy update from Primo since it's mature enough not to need any update. Skins as well.

    I wouldn't put NextGen on a 400Mhz WinCE device, but it should run ok on any "modern" WinCE device including any car DIN which has sufficient memory. As for the "small" buttons, use a skin that allow you to change the size or messes with parameters in sys.txt

    Sorry, i think wasn't clear. I had the information that fjv only work with Primo and fjw only with Nextgen. I like it a lot and i've been using Nextgen with fjw. Don't have an interest in change it to fjv.
    I only wanted to mention that i had an impression that Here has been giving more attention to Nextgen.

    If proggy has license to use .fjw it will work; unfortunately most Primo doesn't. When NNG decided to create .fjw from "tracing" .fjv images, obviously they have to add engine code to handle it. And yes, you're correct about NNG not going to update/add any new tech to Primo.

    A little off-topic, but I'm kind of curious, where does the term "proggy" come from? I understand that it means "program", but I'm just curious if it's an actual slang term that is "normal" somewhere (some country) or if it's just the way that you personally say it? I've never heard that term anywhere else before. Like I said, just curious... :-)

    I made up that term to test people common sense. It means program, software, code, etc... I also like to use terms like "kludge" and "stack" which are also commonly used in industry.
