Hi. I tried to upload files from Oziexplorer off my Hema Navigator to my PC and while they seemed to upload ok, when I try to open them it says "cannot open plt. file" Can someone advise me of what software I need so that I can upload files(saved tracks,etc.) to the PC? Do I need to buy this or can it be downloaded online? I tried that search where it says Windows will search for required software online but it comes up with nothing.
Thanks for any help.

I don't think plt files are ozie compatible. I have shifted this thread into the "Hema Navigator" thread; please choose the right thread to help others find answers.

plt is the extention used by OziExplorer/OziExplorerCe for its plot (track) files.

With respect to the orginal question you will need the PC version of OziExplorer (or some other program that allows the import of OziExplorer format files eg Compegps Land) to view the track overlain on a map.

You can download free trial/demo version of OziExplorer from

Dont think it was in wrong section of the forum myself, but thats just my opinion - either way wouldnt worry about it too much.

I stand corrected.

As for correct thread I also stand corrected but consider the facet of the software on the hardware being the element rather than the end location being the subject. :soapbox

George - not sure if you are aware but Hema have a few help files and video tutorials on their website which you may find of some use.

Yeah, I did view those tutorials when I first purchased it but mainly just the video ones. Will check them out again though as well as the text ones in case they've been updated.
Thanks.
