#4 Problem with install

PalmOS 4 (1)

To whom it may concern:

This is probably very elementary. But I love your
software and would like to get it installed
correctly. Right now, I can't access any of the star
databases on my Palm Zire. OS 4.5.1? I have
downloaded them and installed them to my device. But
I can't access them from the actual program. They do
show up in my iSilo DOC reader, but it's all

What can I do to access this data from Astro Info?

Thanks so much ahead of time,

Please email to jimlaudie@hotmail.com

    The star catalogs are not in a standard format and only
    accessible within astroinfo. You may need to install them
    into the palm internal memory, not on an external memory
    card. Then open astroinfo, choose "Catalogs" from the menu,
    then click on the select button. You should see the
    installed catalogs listed. Select one of the catalogs and
    you get the list of the stars it contains. After that, the
    sky map should also show the stars from the catalog.

    I hope to have this more intuitive in the next version.

    Thanks so much, Jochen. That has done it. This is
    great! The one other thing I'm experiencing right now is
    the night mode doesn't appear to change the display to
    red/black. I just get the same color display. Do you
    know what might be causing that?

    Thanks so much again,

    The night mode does not work for 16 bit color devices. I
    think only a small change is necessary to get this working,
    however, I have not find the time to look into this.

    Hopefully this will be in a later version, but until then
    night mode works only for the older 8 bit-only devices.
