Frequently-Asked Questions About GoMaps
The new GoMaps has many improvements over the old site, most notably that it works on all devices and requires no special software or add-ons. Changing to a new GoMaps system has also become a necessity, due to various changes in technology. Firstly, the old GoMaps used Adobe Flash, a common website technology that is being phased out from the internet. Support for Flash is declining, and sooner or later it will no longer be supported by the major browsers. Secondly, the old GoMaps only worked on the desktop / laptop versions of browsers, not on tablets, smartphones, or other mobile devices. This is a major concern, since according to Google Analytics more than 30% of visitors to Henderson County's website are using a mobile device to view the site.

In some browsers, an 'information bar' comes up indicating that a pop-up has been blocked. In other browsers, a tiny icon in the right side of the address bar is what indicates that a pop-up has been blocked. Click on one of these prompts to allow pop-ups on the GoMaps site.
