Help is available within the PPC application but is limited to short descriptions of the main features available.
Figure 19: Help function within Global Navigator. A little light, but it covers the basics to get you going.
Better documentation is available in the PC application but there is definitely an assumption that you understand the basics of mapping such as scale, waypoints and layers.
For those looking to trek off the roadways, the PDA version of Global Navigator provides the basic functionality needed to navigate terrain. While other programs, such as GPSTuner can work with generally available maps such as Google Earth, Global Navigator is one of the few products which provides topographic and marine products for Canada. With the addition of some trip computer functionality to the PDA version and more modern topographic and street overlays, this could become the ultimate off-road companion.
