Introduction

You have chosen a cutting-edgenavigation system. Congratulations! Please enjoy using it. This navigation system leads you straight to your destination, whether you are travelling by car or on foot. You can navigate and plan your route with an easy-to-useand intuitive interface, just by using your finger. You can also use this application to plan your trip to suit your personal preferences and interests and to save interesting destinations before your set off on your journey.

This manual leads you through the main features of the system.

GPS connection

Your navigation device uses GPS technology for navigation. The device receives signals from a number of GPS satellites in order to determine your current position.

Place your navigation device in a location with an unobstructed view to the sky to set up your first satellite connection. In the car this will usually mean mounting the unit on the lower part of the windscreen.

Note; It may take up to 10 minutes to establish the first connection. Subsequent connections will be faster (30 seconds to 1 minute), but if you have not used the unit for several days or are far away from the last location where you used the unit, it may take up to 10 minutes again to find a strong signal.

NAVIGATION MENU

Show Trace Record

The unit is capable of logging all positioning information received from the GPS satellites during navigation. It then uses this information to draw a track of the route on the map. This enables you to review the route information at a later time.

If you have previously recorded any trace records then these will be shown in the list, use the Up/Down keys to scroll through the list.

If there are no trace records you will have to record a trace first.

Recording a trace record: use the Record Off/Record On button to activate and deactivate this feature. The button will always show the option which is currently not selected example display shows Record Off, but the actual recording feature is on and visa versa for Record On. It is recommended that you start recording after your route has been planned or you are in map tracking mode and that you stop recording once you have reached your destination. This will prevent the unit from continually recording while you are not driving, it will also divide each journey into a separate trace record.

Each recording will be logged with the following information.

Viewing the Trace Record on the map: Select the Trace record you want to view, the currently selected trace record will be highlighted orange, then select the option

Show it. The screen will change to the View Map screen (see page 23) and the trace will be shown as an orange line with green arrows. To remove the trace from the map, re-enterthe Trace Record feature again, but this time select Hide it.

To delete a trace record highlight the trace to delete and then tap the X located in between the Up/Down arrows.

To Exit from the Trace Record screen tap Close.
