Canbus file in SmartScope

I have a DBC file I want to use in SmartScope.  At the top of the CAN setup menu, there is a "Open Database".  How do I get my DBC file selected there?

Plug your Tablet into the USB of your computer.  You will get a message about being able to view the contents of the tablet. Allow this.

 

Then thru Microsoft Windows, navigate to the following directory and store the DBC file in it:

 

[computer name]\Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact\Internal storage\DCIM\Siemens\Dbc

 

This directory could be a little different depending on the tablet you use.

 

Also make sure to turn on the 'CAN Visualization' for the desire channels in the CAN setup.  More details here:
