The SonarWave Lite software automatically scans and checks the selected XTF file for available data channels. If more than 2 channels (port and starboard sidescan) are detected, the user is prompted to select the channels to load.
The options from the XTF Channels dialog are:
- Port and Starboard low frequency sidescan.
- Port and Starboard high frequency sidescan.
Only the available channels are enabled in the dialog.
The user can open an XTF file from the File->Open… menu in the GUI. SonarWave Lite installs a file association for XTF files. With the file association, the user can double click on a file in the File Explorer to automatically open an XTF file.
