TOPIC

This will walk you through the process of installing Pocket Contour and Sending a Contour Chart to your PDA.


DISCUSSION

First make sure the Pocket PC is in the Cradle and make sure you are connected through active sync.

To load Pocket Contour you will need to first open the Chart or Offshore Navigator program.

Go to View > Options > Contour Tab > In here on the Bottom right choose
Install Pocket Contour.

After this is complete close out of the options area.

Next bring up a local area NOAA chart that you also wish to see the bottom Contour. After this NOAA chart is up on screen go to Charts then Link to Contour.

This will now split your screen so the NOAA chart is on one side and the Contour chart is on the other side.

Next highlight the title bar on the Contour side. Next go up to Charts > Send Contour Chart to PDA.

This will now transfer the Contour chart to the PDA so the Pocket Contour can read them when you are at that GPS position.
