I purchased the EOTopo on the micro SD card and it arrived today.
So far so good.

Now I have the card, and the unit, but no instructions are supplied to put the 2 together.

Anything I've found in search is to and from 'geeks' who understand stuff like:
'This is in the folder \OZF and the two files you need are EOTopo_AUS.ozf4 & - copy these and put them into a sub folder of the" \SDMMC\OziExplorer Maps" folder on the HN6. In the "\SDMMC\OziExplorer Maps" folder create a new folder called EOTopo and put the two files in there.'

So what are the simple steps for one of the uneducated to marry the two items?

Hi Paul,

Using Windows Explorer, copy the files from the SD card to somewhere on your PC/Laptop. (I only selected the EOTopo_AUS.ecw or .ozf files which are for all of Australia in the one seamless map)
If you have no way of inserting the SD card, you will need a card reader which will complicate matters a little. The flash drive version plugs directly into the USB port.

Connect the Hema to your PC/Laptop and again with Windows Explorer, open the Hema directories. The Hema will show as an additional drive on the PC/Laptop.
You will see a Data Sub-directory under the OziExplorer directory and this is where you copy the files to.
You need both the .ecw and .map file, or the .ozf4 and its corresponding file.

Then you load the map in the normal manner.

Thanks Sandman,

Your reply probably makes sense to some but I'm a bunny when it comes to the inner workings of a computer but I appreciate your reply.

Trouper, I think your on the money, thanks.
