If your AutoVu™ Genetec Patroller™ license supports mapping, you can use Patroller's default mapping solution BeNomad to provide map and reverse geocoding information.

Before you begin

  • (Law Enforcement only) Make sure that you installed the “Maps Engine” during Genetec Patroller™ installation in the Map Configuration Selection page.
  • When your AutoVu™ license is created, you receive an auto-generated email with a zip file containing the BeNomad maps for your geographic location, and a unique .glic file that contains your license information. You'll need both these files to install BeNomad.


  1. Unzip the contents of the BeNomad zip file to your computer.

    A folder called BeNomad is created.

  2. Copy the BeNomad folder to the Patroller's MobileClient folder on the in-vehicle computer.
    The MobileClient folder is the main program folder that includes the Patroller.exe and PatrollerConfigTool.exe files. In a default Genetec Patroller™ installation, this folder is created on the in-vehicle computer at C:\Program Files\Genetec AutoVu X.Y\MobileClient.
  3. Copy the .glic AutoVu™ license file from the auto-generated email to the BeNomad folder on the in-vehicle computer.
  4. Go to Navigation > Maps.
  5. From the Mapping type list, select BeNomad.
  6. Click Apply.
    NOTE: The Windows user account accessing the mobile client folder should have read and write permissions, other wise the map will always load zoomed out.


BeNomad maps are enabled when you start Genetec Patroller™.
