With a WindowsCE operating system, you would need OziExplorerCE to run on the device. A fairly cheap addition if you already own OziExplorer. The cost is $38 for OziExplorerCE through the ExplorOz shop and you need OziExplorer installed on a PC or Laptop to import maps, etc.
The problem may be in the installation of OziExplorerCE and the digital mapping software if you are a novice on computer technology.

Another very good in dash Navigation/Audio system is the VMS Touring Series, however it comes with Mud Map as the preinstalled off-road navigation software plus iTopo 4x4 topographic maps.
This unit will accept OziExplorerCE and digital maps such as NatMap Premium and/or Hema Maps can be installed , but again would require some knowledge of computer technology in the installation process.

Hi Sand Man
I have access to a friend of my daughter, he is a Geek so for a few beers he said he can do computer side for me.

Had a look ad VMS, very impressive but also cost heaps. I was looking for something on the cheaper side. Or at least on the minus side of $1000.

One of my sons got a system from the net and put Ozi on it. Ozi works fine but he cannot listen to music or the radio etc at the same time as having Ozi displayed.

Keep this in mind.

Hi Wayne

I have used the portable version from this mob and have had no troubles at all. They sell in-dash units as well but I have no experience with those. No affiliation etc etc just a happy customer.

i went a samsung galaxy note with androzic and hema maps downloaded from festy.

get a car mount kit and you have the map side licked,

for audio load all your music on a microSD card and plug it.
