Time to upgrade the GPS

Hi All,

My 7 year love affair with my Magellan Gold has come to an end, as the Magellan has chucked a wobbly.
I found it a good GPS with the PC software good for planning and down loading trips, bad point was small screen and not a particularly easy unit to use.

I have been given a 7” GPS running ce and ozzy explorer already loaded. Looks good but I don’t really know how to use it and I don’t know if you can pre plan a trip on a PC and download it to the GPS (although I suspect you would).

My questions, is there anywhere that provides training on using ozzy explorer, and best place to buy an original copy of the software.

Any thoughts on the suitability of this software and is there another preferred GPS out there

Maybe I should update the Magellan

All thoughts greatly accepted

Hello

Best place to download the original software is from.....wait for it.....

The OziExplorer Website :) ...

For starters read the help file that comes with the software (both the PC version and the CE version).

Here are some handy tutorials - OziExplorer Tutorials

and here are some video tutorials on using OziCE on the Hema Navigator - Video Tutorials - HEMA Navigator (4.3") ...a different unit to yours but OziCe and basic concepts all the same.

Lots of OziExplorer users on this forum so if you have any questions someone out there will know the answer.

Cheers
Greg

Thanks Greg, videos were good, tutorials made me think the $100 for the training course would be worth while

- It also has turn by turn road navigation with latest NAVTEQ street data

Thanks Ian, Just got back from a week in Melbourne.
Looks good and will consider if the 7" unit I have goes wheels up. I have recently purchased Ozi Exp and the ce application. Not spent much time with it yet.

Thanks for the link
