Two, just like Dr. Depth and many other PC programs.

I have a similar issue. I loaded it on a pc that i use for all my recordings and and it was so slow that i could not use it and no world map.  i loaded it on my wife's laptop (windows 7) and it works fine. Went in and deactivated the license on the pc that it would not run on and it popped up a message telling me i could not put it back on this computer and i clicked ok since it would not run it anyway. the pc i deactivated it on was online when i did it. Went to put it on another faster xp pc i have and got message saying it is on too many pc and would not activate. i called tech support and was pretty much told i was out of luck the license says 2 pc's. Every thing i have read says that if you deactivate a license on a pc the program it will let you load it on another one. Why in the world would they put a deactivate license tab in a program if all it will do is not let you put it back on your pc. I have sent several emails to Johnson outdoors along with my receipt and activation key as I was told and have gotten no response in 3 days. Very aggravated about it. I was so excited about the program and have been waiting months for it to hit the shelves and now i am kinda scared to use it because i am afraid it will crash and i will have a $300 coaster for a soft drink ($50 shipping overnight).

That sounds fair to me.  I have intentions of using it on a new Notepad (laptop gaming machine in the boat) and a desktop at home in the Air Conditioning. :)

I'm still doing research on this product.

Someone said that there was a manual on the CD that comes with the program. Is that available online anywhere were I could read the manual to learn how to work the program before buying it? ??

Just to let you know i got my activation key right after sending Humminbird Greg an email and found out the lady over that had been out of town. i am running it on a laptop and my home pc and love it. I use it to live map and i am amazed by the 3d part!! So far it is right on the money as far as accuracy.  i live on a lake and have several of my fishing spots mapped and had no idea what they looked like until i mapped it. (been over it a hundred times with side imaging but not sure of all the depth changes until now).There is a manual on the humminbird website under support then manuals. i can run over a spot watching it on my laptop and my 898 and create a contour map in seconds while in the boat. When i bought it their tech support was lacking experience with it because it is a new product and i got a little frustrated but that is water under the bridge.
