Review of some FAQ Questions
• Does Navigator require a deployment?
• Yes, because of the complexity of the services
installations and the difficulty in diagnosing
problems that may occur, Navigator requires a 3
day, on-site deployment (AVL requires a 2 day,
remote deployment)
This is an accurate statement, I for one am always looking to self
deploy, but in my opinion deployment needs to be done by
someone knowledgeable in the product.
Review of some FAQ Questions
 Can I run NOMAD and Navigator at the
same time?
 Yes, you can have separate installations of
NOMAD and Navigator running against the
same Dispatch system. (Note: you can not install the
Navigator services or databases on the same server you are running
NOMAD server)
 This is an accurate statement, I am successfully running
both applications in my environment with no issues.
Review of some FAQ Questions
 How do my NOMAD licenses translate to
Navigator licenses?
 They are one to one. For example, if you own
10 client licenses for NOMAD, you will be
receive 10 client licences of Navigator
Review of some FAQ Questions
 How do I receive the Navigator Upgrade?
 If you are a current NOMAD customer, the
software upgrade is FREE! Please contact
your sales representative to schedule your
Navigator upgrade deployment.
Note : even though the license Upgrade is free there is a
deployment cost, you should keep this in mind when
developing a budget for the project.
Review of some FAQ Questions
 What version of RescueNet Dispatch or
RescueNet CommCAD does Navigator
work with?
 Navigator 1.0requires RescueNet Dispatch
v4.2 SP1 or CommCAD v2.1 and Navigator
1.1 requires 4.3
This is important to know because sometimes upgrading your CAD version has
effects on or creates the need to upgrade other applications please give yourself
ample time to perform your CAD upgrade and resolve any issues before deployment
of navigator
