INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this manual is to serve as a teaching guide for students who want to learn
Oziexplorer.
This is not a complete guide to OZI. The student is expected to take the fundamentals
acquired and to go on, on their own to learn the program more in depth.
OZI is being continually upgraded so any manual produced is quickly out dated.
There seems to be no end to what OZI can do, moving map on Palm Pilots, OZI 3D, OZI
used for Automatic Radio Position Systems, OZI linked with digital cameras, and the list
grows day by day.

OZI
Down Loading Ozi from a disk.
Initial loading step
Down load as per instructions on CD case.. You should end up with a file on the C drive
called Oziexplorer and an Icon on the desk top.
At some point you will be asked to “enter registration code”. If you are not prompted to
then go to OZI menu bar and click on “HELP”.
Go to the last entry and click on
“enter registration code”.
3
Enter Registration Key – enter User Name and Key code from the
package the OZI CD came in.
Click “Save”
Note: Some other boxes may come up prompting you to enter the User Name and Key
Code. There is one box you can check off saying “don’t show this again”
CONGRATULATIONS, you have now installed and have a working OZI program.

Configuring Ozi
The next thing to do is to “configure” OZI , or establish where maps are stored, what units of
measure will be used and other settings. But before we do that let us set up the files OZI will
need.
Find Oziexplorer in the C: drive and go in and create some files and name them Waypoints,
Routes, Tracks, Maps, Data, Photos, Events
Go to the OZI menu bar and click on “File” and near the bottom of the drop down box click
on “Configuration”
5
The following setting are just to get you started. You will change them
later as required
Notice all the tabs in the box. We will go through each one and set our “Configuration”
to all the same settings for now.
