1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE to a directory on your hard drive.

2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to unpack the ROM update files to a directory.

(NOTE: This directory should not contain any file or folder from any previous ROM upgrade.)

3. Establish an ActiveSync connection between the iPAQ Business Navigator and the host PC using a USB connection.

4. The ROM Update Utility (hpRUU.exe) starts automatically. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the ROM upgrade.

(NOTE: Once the update is complete, the .EXE file downloaded in Step 1 can be deleted, if desired.)
