Getting started with Content Manager

Content Manager is a PC based application that has a number of important features to help you manage the content of your HP iPAQ 310 Series Travel Companion. With Content Manager you can:

Backup the content stored on your device to your PC and restore it back to your device at a later date.
Connect to the Content Manager server to download updates or additional navigation content on your device.
Synchronize Outlook contacts to your device.
Transfer trip plans created on www.ipaq.com to your device.

There are several types of navigation content that are loaded on your device and that can be used with Content Manager. The content that is available depends upon the device you originally purchased and the country you purchased it from.

Content is broken down into smaller, more manageable pieces for each region or country. The various types of content that might be available are given below.

Maps are the road networks used by the navigation system to route your trips.
Landmarks are 3D artistic or block representations of prominent or well-known objects. 3D landmarks are only available in selected cities and countries.
3D Cities are full 3D city building data that represents actual building size and position on the map. 3D cities building data is limited to the city center of major cities in the US and Europe.
POIs are Points of Interest, which are specific reference points that can be searched and navigated to. They are sorted into different categories like hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, business, banks, and many other locations that users may want to find while they travel.
Phonemes are used by the text to speech navigation engine to speak the road names to you while navigating. Text to speech voices are not available for all languages and can be selected in navigation settings, regional, voice by selecting any voice with (TTS) in the name.
Relief is the 3D terrain map data that shows changes in terrain, elevations, or depressions in the land when you view the map and use it to plot the route map in 3D when you navigate.
Voice language is either pre-recorded voices or Text to Speech (TTS) voices. Text to speech voices are indicated by (TTS) and use artificial intelligence to speak road names while navigating. Non TTS voices are recorded in the identified language and just tell the user to turn left or right and at what distance.
Menu language is the languages that are available for the device software to display text to the user.
Application is the application and navigation software that is running your Travel Companion.
