OziExplorerCE is moving map software for
Window CE devices, it uses raster map images which are either scanned or
purchased in digital format.
not automatic route planning software,
you cannot request the best way to get from point A to point B, if you
require this type of software then OziExplorerCE is not for you.
OziExplorerCE will not be available for Palm Pilots or any other operating
The design philosophy is you plan your trip
using the full PC OziExplorer on you PC and then transfer your waypoints
and other data to your CE device for use by OziExplorerCE.
OziExplorerCE runs on a Windows CE device but it relies on map
calibrations etc to be provided by the full PC version of OziExplorer, in
the respect OziExplorerCE can be considered an add-on to the full
Oziexplorer software, you also need the full OziExplorer to calibrate
maps, plan trips by adding waypoints etc.
These are the types of devices supported.

(CE Versions 2.11,2.12) and HPC 2000 (CE version 3.0+)

converted to the ozf or ozf2 format, a
conversion utility will be supplied. The ozf / ozf2
