    "Version 4.1 was IMHO Superior."

    March 24, 2013  |   By bones58gdi

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    It gets the job done. Will auto save if you CHECK save to subfolder with current date. PREVENTS LOSING DATA.

    Cons

    Tries to automate the process so you are either at one end of the spectrum or the other.
    Adding more middle ground would be appreciated.

    Summary

    It is functional with heavy emphasis on funk!
    Need a backward revisions to MP TOOLBOX 4.1
    Here you could pick image dpi from list 75 - 150 - 200 - 300 - 400
    Greyscale or B&W
    Selecting image dpi produced smaller files.
    I could see how that setting may have been confusing for some.

    "Confusing software for scanning"

    January 4, 2013  |   By simplylisa

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    I cannot find any.

    Cons

    MP Navigator's default "save to" file is evidently linked to the software's interface "live". Software interface window is too small and new files list a the end rather than the beginning. User has to scroll endlessly to arrive at newly scanned items. If user deletes already saved documents from Navigator interface window user is deleting files from the default "save to" file. If user hasn't resaved items to personal folders before closing software the user will lose all scanned documents.

    Summary

    The software is rudimentary at best. The interface is complicated to understand and discern how to use, and there are very little instructions. Interface "preview pane" is tiny and the newly scanned files appear at the end of a list rather than the beginning, thus the user has to scroll through a sea of documents to arrive at the new ones in order to save. RECOMMENDATION: If you simply have no other choice of software and must use the MP Navigator for scanning and saving documents, take the time to click through the File Tree and save the document in your own file not the default "save to" file. If you have to close the software window before complete (such as to recycle the computer) user will lose any data scanned into MP Navigator. No where in my instructions does it give this information. What a waste of a day!

    "User Unfriendly!"

    June 26, 2012  |   By Green-Machine

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    1. Cannot switch between my Canon MP5100 and MP6100 printer/scanner.
    2. Difficult to obtain support from Canon.
    3, Interface is "clunky" (technical term). It forces user through many unintuitive screens to manually adjust scanner settings.

    Summary

    I am going to be looking for ANY other scanner interface software. Let me know if you have any suggestions,,,please!

    ""Just OK" is being too kind"

    December 26, 2011  |   By SteveWilson46

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    Free with Canon scanner. Some useful features.

    Cons

    Program is badly written. No way to change most preferences. Manual is simplistic and mostly useless unless you are a computer illiterate.

    Summary

    There are many better written, more useful free programs that do the same thing, and more! Full of "little" bugs. Example: "options" are pre-checked (and can be unchecked) with no way of changing the "default" setting. Appears to have been written specifically to force an upgrade. My experience in trying to upgrade resulted in a barrage of adware warnings. Recommendation: Look for another program that does the things YOU want it to do, then dump MP Navigator EX. My opinion of Canon has been lowered by this software and it's attendant adware.

    "Does Not Work With My Canon Scanner"

    December 19, 2011  |   By glorym

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    There aren't any.

    Cons

    Wrong file.

    Summary

    MP Navigator EX came with my Canon CanoScan Lide 100 Scanner. Your download disabled my scanner. I had to uninstall this so called update and reinstall the program from my scanner disc. Your automatic update checker made a serious mistake. Fortunately, I was able to correct it.

    "Works for me."

    October 26, 2011  |   By jimdilling

    Version: MP Navigator EX for Windows 2.1

    Pros

    Like the 1 click multi-page docs saved as a pdf.
    Can drag a document to several folders while the original stays put.

    Cons

    I haven't found documentation for all the functions.
    Changing the default save location has been a challenge.
    Didn't like all the ads on the download page. Confusing to know what you are downloading.

    Summary

    A good scan program for saving pdf files (either individual or multiple page documents).
