As of FTD Mercury X6, the Microsoft MapPoint software is no longer used. The MapPoint replacement solution does not support the free construction update functionality.

Mercury Delivery uses Microsoft MapPoint software. Microsoft offers free Highway Construction downloads on the Microsoft Web site. You can check to see if you have the latest highway construction update using your MapPoint software. If you do not have the latest update downloaded, the program asks you if you want to download the latest information.

To check that you have the latest MapPoint update:

  1. Open the MapPoint software by clicking the Windows Start menu, pointing to All Programs, and then clicking Microsoft MapPoint North America.
  2. On the Route menu, click Update Construction Information.
  3. If you do not have the latest information, you are asked if you want to download the free update. Click Yes.
  4. When the download completes, you are alerted that it was successful. Click OK.

The construction updates only update highway construction information in your area. To receive a full MapPoint update, you will have to keep current with the MapPoint software by purchasing upgrades when they are available from Microsoft.

For more information about the free construction updates or new releases of the MapPoint software, see the MapPoint online help (click Help in the menu bar, then click Microsoft MapPoint Help) or see the Microsoft Web site.
