v1.0 is here!
3 weeks ago, we publicly announced TMS FNC Maps (https://tmssoftware.com/site/blog.asp?post=638), followed by a BETA release to all of our TMS ALL Access customers. Today, we are proud to announce the first release of TMS FNC Maps!
Cross-framework, cross-platform, cross-service
We wanted to create a component where you are not tied to a fixed mapping service provider but make it as easy as changing a property to switch to another provider. When a provider raises prices, reduces functionality or when another provider starts providing better routing, change one property setting in your application and you are up & running with another mapping service provider. On top of that, TMS FNC Maps targets the FNC framework, which offers a cross-framework, cross-platform solution for your projects. You all know how the saying goes: “A picture says more than a thousand words”
Below is a video video that shows a quick overview of what TMS FNC Maps has to offer and which features are supported.

Please remember, TMS FNC Maps is a part of the FNC family and FNC is a cross-platform / cross-framework component library. Write your code once and target multiple operating systems!
To get the best out of TMS FNC Maps and make all of this work together we've introduced breaking changes and moved the TMSFNCCloudBase unit from TMS FNC Cloud Pack to TMS FNC Core. This means that each FNC product will have access to this unit and this allows you to consume your own REST service, download/upload files without the need for TMS FNC Cloud Pack.

TMS FNC Maps is using the Edge Chromium browser on Windows (FMX, VCL and LCL). To install this browser, please follow the steps at https://www.tmssoftware.com/site/edgechromium.asp
