This section describes how to install maps to your CompactFlash® card installed in your PAC Mate Omni.
Before you install one or more maps, make certain that you have:
Tip: If you have a card reader connected to your computer, you can use this instead of ActiveSync to copy maps to your CompactFlash card. Many of these maps are quite large and you will find that copying them using a reader is much faster.
Note: You must have at least one map installed and available to StreetTalk VIP before starting the program. If no map can be loaded by StreetTalk VIP, a dialog box appears telling you to insert a CompactFlash card containing maps before starting StreetTalk VIP. The use of combination storage and wireless cards is not recommended. In addition, do not attempt to remove the CompactFlash card containing the maps from the PAC Mate Omni while StreetTalk VIP is running.
You can install maps using the included disc, or by logging into your account on the Sendero Web site and downloading the maps you want to install.
Whether you choose to download maps from Sendero or use the included disc, each map is compressed using the ZIP format. Extract the map and POI data files to a folder on your computer you can easily remember.
Note: As map files are quite large, only download maps from the Sendero Web site using your computer. Do not download maps using your PAC Mate Omni.
To install maps to your storage card, do the following:
Important note: All map files must be loaded directly into the Maps folder. Do not create any subfolders for storing maps otherwise, StreetTalk VIP will not be able to find them.
Tip: If you have a large enough storage card, you can load all of the maps so they all will be instantly available to you on your PAC Mate Omni. For example, the entire United States will fit on a 16 GB storage card.
