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 uses Adobe Flash, a common website technology that is nonetheless 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 works 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.
As long as you have an up-to-date operating system and browser, GoMaps 4 will work. Support for Windows XP and Vista is limited. The following browsers have been successfully tested with GoMaps 4: Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 10 and 11), Opera, and Safari.
