Upgrading SMART
You can upgrade to SMART 3.3.1 from SMART 1.1.2 or later. For versions prior to 1.1.2 see prior version upgrade instructions.

To upgrade to SMART 3.3.1:

  • Backup your existing SMART database using the ‘File -> Backup System’ menu option.
  • Install SMART 3.3.1. If you are going to install it in the same location as your previous version, you must delete the previous version first. Do not merge directories.
  • On the login screen, select the ‘Advanced’ option, then the ‘Restore a Backup’ option. Follow the wizard, and when asked to select a backup file to restore, pick the file created in step 1 above.
  • A prompt will appear, warning that the backup file is not compatible with the current software version. You will be asked if you want to upgrade (and restore) – select ‘Yes’. At this point the backup will be upgraded and restored.

NOTE: Upgrading a large database may take a while (10-15 minutes for a database with ~800,000 waypoints).
