Quickmap vs Prover

Wondering what the difference between Quickmap and Prover is? This article puts Quickmap and Prover head-to-head to showcase what each can do for you.

Firstly, what is Prover? Prover is a website that can be accessed from any internet enabled device. It requires no installation, you just go to the Prover website, login, and you’re away. It works on any browser (MS Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). You can access it from your laptop, PC, Mac, smartphone, etc.

By contrast, Quickmap is a program that is installed on your PC. Unless you’re doing title ordering or accessing other data from Quickmap (such as title preview or downloading new data to store on your computer for later use), all data is stored on your computer, so no internet connection is required.

Here’s a table showing some of the differences in features of Quickmap and Prover.
