What is the behavior of the current version of SeeYou (PC app) if/when the subscription expires? Does it still run? Does it keep the map data it already downloaded stored on the PC? Do maps for new areas still load? Does that differ between "terrain view" and "satellite view"? Where (which server) do the maps load from? Do any other features stop working (other than the use of SeeYou Cloud)?

Same questions about the "Navigator" cell phone app?

This says you can turn off updates before your subscription expires, and
continue to run as befo

And what happens if you forget to turn off updates, or if it behaves like most software these days, where "updates" are shoved down your throat no matter what you choose? Anyway I'd love to hear from a normal customer who has actually done this (let the SeeYou subscription expire).

It still runs, even after years. You do have to keep it updated to receive new features (SkySight integration, etc).

I don't think I say in the video that you can turn off automatic updates. I think what I said is that you have to ignore all the future update notifications and not upgrade once you are beyond the end date of your annual subscription.

If you don't purchase an annual subscription then the Version of SeeYou currently installed on your PC will continue to run for ever. The only limitation of which I am aware after the expiry of a subscription is that Skysight and topmeteo weather layers will not work.

The annual subscription also gives you access to the phone app SeeYou Navigator and the ability to use SeeYou on Ios.

Actually at 4:10 you said to make sure your updates are turned off, if
you want to keep running the existing version. Sounded like you were
using the terms updates and upgrades interchangeably.

As far as I know, there is no ability to turn off the updates, but they are not installed Automatically. They are installed only when you click on the pop-up that appears in the lower right corner when a new version is available.

So, if your subscription is expired - don't click on it, or if you do, let me know and I'll sell you a new subscription : )
