I haven't used it much yet, but 4.5 does appear to be a bit better than some of the previous versions, I found many after v4.25 had a lot of bugs .

After more use I've uninstalled it and gone back to 4.2.5, my main use for the program is the way it easily lets you convert a track to a route and play about with the positioning of route points. The new version along with all others after 4.2.5 no longer supports that feature.

Epic fail!
