Unless the pmapOCX has been upgraded to work with the new version of 
PMap v7.0 from Undertow Software, it probably will not work with WinAPRS.

When Undertow upgraded from V6 to V7 they changed their formats.  The 
reason I say this is because, UI-View32 uses PMapServer to work with 
PMap.  A new PMapServer V7 had to be written in order for it to be 
compatible with PMap V7.  Undertow Software no longer sells the V6 of Pmap.

If WinAPRS is not compatible with PMap V7 then don't waste your money, 
unless you use UI-View32.
