Greetings from Sendero!
This 2014 version is Sendero's 18th release and
we have yet another surprise for you. After 14
years, blind users of Sendero products have asked
for and gotten improvements that make the
BrailleNote and Braille Sense products flexible
and powerfulearning them the title of the
Cadillac of GPS, functionality that is also available on the Windows PC.
To encourage you to keep your Cadillac of GPS up
to date, all upgrades, no matter which version
you have, will be a fraction of previous upgrade
pricing. Purchase by the end of April for only $49.
Whats new in 2014? There are a few important bug
fixes under the hood. The main improvement is in
the 2014 map data and POIs. If you have Sendero
Maps, 2014 maps and POIs are available. Updates
to all products are best managed from your
Sendero Maps software on the Windows PC, which
comes free with new BrailleNote GPS or Sense Nav GPS purchases.
The BrailleNote classic was the first electronic
portable braille device which served as the
launching pad for Sendero's GPS software in
2001. Sendero and HumanWare have a very special
update for BrailleNote Apex users in 2014. The
next release of the BrailleNote's interface,
KeySoft 9.4.1 for the BrailleNote Apex, will
include KeyMaps. KeyMaps is a free virtual
navigation tool which allows you to:
* Download your country's maps
directly to the BrailleNote Apex using its
internet connection. No need to use a PC,
KeyMaps guides you through the simple process to
download the map directly to the BrailleNote Apex.
* Search for an address and explore
the area around it. Traveling to a hotel next
week? Search for it in KeyMaps and virtually
learn the area and what is around the hotel before you even arrive.
* Walking to a grocery store you
haven't been to yet? Search for its address or
name in KeyMaps and learn the best route to take before you head out.
* Use KeyMaps as a phonebook: Want
the phone number to make a reservation at that
new restaurant people can't stop talking about?
Search for it in KeyMaps and instantly see the
phone number, address, and distance from you, and so much more.
If you would like to upgrade from Keymaps to the
full BrailleNote GPS including Bluetooth GPS
receiver for outdoor usage, it will now be $599,
nearly half its previous price. Stay tuned for a
HumanWare announcement about the KeySoft release.
Current BrailleNote GPS customers can upgrade
today* for only $49 at
(*limited time offer valid through the end of April 2014).
Sense Navigation customers go to:
We encourage using Sendero PC Maps to upgrade
your PDA GPS versions. It is by far the easiest
way to upgrade as well as an excellent tool to
use in conjunction with your PDA or mobile device
such as Seeing Eye GPS for the iPhone. For more
