How to open your previously saved file...
After inputting the pertinent data into your Night Force Ballistic Targeting Software, you must save the file so that you can utilize it on your next shooting session.
To Save your file, go to the bottom left hand corner of the pocket pc screen and choose "File." A small pop-up window will appear. Next, pick "Save As..." and a large window will present itself.
Within this window, you will see the following:
Here is an example of what should be inputted:
Name: .308 175 grn Federal Match
Folder: NIGHT FORCE
Type: Bullet Data (*.Bul)
Location: Main Memory or Storage Card; I save my files to my storage card which frees up the main unit's memory.
Once this information is inputted, click on "SAVE."
Now the next time that you turn on your pocket pc, go to the bottom left hand corner of the screen and click on "File,"
--> then "Open,"
-->then click on the name of the file that you have saved.
However, you may encounter a problem depending on which Pocket PC you are using and if your batteries have died.
IF you are using a business type of Pocket PC such as a Dell Axim 30 or similar, and its batteries have died on you; the software will automatically be deleted and you will not be able to find it.
To prevent this from happening, you will need to either load the software directly onto your storage card, or back up the software onto your storage card so that you can restore it once the batteries have been recharged.
This problem will not occur with a TDS Recon or Nomad Pocket PC as the software is safely stored in the units main memory, not in flash memory.
