Technical Library on Android or iPhone
Got a new android phone. I installed a 64 gigabyte MicroSD card today, ($52 on Amazon, free shipping) then transferred my entire Enhanced Technical Library onto the card. Now I can
1) read all the accumulated PDFs for vehicle & system servicing direct on the phone.
2) transfer files by choosing the file & emailing it, bluetoothing it, etc. to another RV'er or to a service outfit, direct from the phone.
I choose: MyFiles app>extSdCard> and up comes a series of folders. Choose the folder you want to explore, down to the individual file. I'm sure iPhones have a similar approach. I copied about 2gb of files that I now have with me anytime I have the phone.
So anybody who has my Enhanced Technical Library on CD can do the same. All of HWH's service PDFs load perfectly, as does my 11 page Parts & Service Info Word doc. I actually did the copying using the SD card adapter that came w/the MicroSD card, plugged the Micro into the adapter, plugged adapter into my laptop's SD card slot, then Copy & Pasted the whole library in one batch; removed the adapter then the Micro, put the Micro into the phone, and Voila! Only glitch was that the android phone won't read email files of the type *.eml, so I eliminated those for clarity. There were only two out of the hundreds of data files, other files transferred & appear to be coming up flawlessly.
