Why are the products being phased out? 


The PTV maps and products are constantly being enhanced. Many new and improved functions have been integrated at the request of our customers. In addition, you will have noticed that a maintenance contract on the current versions pays off, as it integrates extended functions. It also guarantees that you remain up-to-date – a basic prerequisite for day-to-day operations. PTV Group is therefore meeting the growing requirements of its clients.
