The Pocket Navigator 5.1.2 requires: Pocket PC OS 2002 to Mobile 5; 4MB of free memory; Active Sync 3.0 (or higher); and additional storage for charts, maps and photos. Desktop software requires: Windows 2000 or XP; Pentium processor; 32 MB of RAM; 8 MB free on hard drive for installation; and a mouse or drawing equivalent. (Maptech, Amesbury, Mass.)
