OziExplorerCE is moving map software for PocketPC's and Window CE PND Navigators which use the WinCE core operating system. It uses raster map images which are either scanned or purchased in digital format. It allows you to track your position received from a GPS on a map (moving map).

OziExplorerCE is not automatic route planning software, you cannot request the best way to get from point A to point B, the types of maps OziExplorerCE uses do not allow this. However OziExplorerCE will allow you to create your own routes on the map and navigate along those.

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 PDA for use by OziExplorerCE.

OziExplorerCE runs on PocketPC and Windows CE GPS / PND's but it relies on map calibrations etc to be provided by the full PC version of OziExplorer, in this 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.

The unregistered OziExplorerCE will work with the unregistered OziExplorer but the limitations of both packages will apply.

To get the full use of OziExplorerCE you must have a full purchased copy of OziExplorerCE and a full purchased copy of PC OziExplorer.
