2.8Installing the hardware in a vehicle

We recommend using a special cradle for your PDA in order to ensure the safe operation of the navigation system in a vehicle. This will ensure that the display is always easy to read and that the driving instructions from the system are well understood.

You can purchase a special cradle for your mobile phone in specialist stores.

2.9Power supply for the PDA and GPS receiver

It is recommended to connect the PDA and GPS receiver to an external power supply, especially for long trips.

Charging cables for connection to the cigar lighter socket are available for almost all devices in specialist stores. These cables are often also available online from the PDA manufacturer or GPS receiver manufacturer.

If you want to power several devices from your vehicle's cigar lighter socket, you will need a multiple adapter which you can obtain from a specialist dealer.

2.10Navigating with GPS

GPS is based on a total of at least 24 satellites orbiting the Earth and continuously transmitting signals of their position and time. The GPS

- 12 -

Before you begin

User’s manual MN7 PDA

receiver receives this data and calculates its own geographical position on the basis of the information transmitted by the various satellites.

Data from at least three satellites is required for positioning with an acceptable degree of accuracy. With data from four or more satellites it is possible in addition to determine the position's altitude above sea level. Positioning is accurate to within three metres.

Once the navigation device has determined your position, this position can be used as a starting point for calculating a route.

The map data on your navigation device includes the geographical coordinates of all digitally recorded points of interest, streets and places. This enables the device to calculate a route between a starting point and a destination.

Calculation of the current position and its representation on the map takes place once every second. In other words, your current position is always shown on the map.

2.11Important safety information

In your own interest, read the following notices and safety information carefully before starting up your navigation system.

2.11.1Navigation safety information

Use the navigation system at your own risk.

Caution! To prevent accidents, do not operate the navigation system while driving.

Caution! Do not look at the display unless it is absolutely safe to do so!

Caution! Traffic regulations have priority over any instructions from the navigation system.

Caution! Follow the instructions of the navigation system only when the circumstances and the road traffic regulations allow you to do so! The navigation system will still guide you to your destination even if you deviate from the calculated route.

Caution! Check that the cradle is secured and adjusted properly before each journey.

Note: If you have not understood the spoken instructions or are unsure about what to do next, you can refer briefly to the map or schematic view of your navigation system.

Before you begin

2.11.2Safety information for external GPS receivers

Caution!Do not lay the cable directly next to safety-relevant devices and supply lines.

Caution! After installation, check all safety-relevant equipment in the car.

Caution!Remove the plug from the power supply of the GPS receiver when you park the car, as the receiver consumes electricity and could discharge the car's battery.

Caution!Ensure that the GPS receiver is installed in such a way as not to impede the safe operation of the vehicle.

2.11.3Safety guidelines when installing the device in your car

Caution! Fasten the cradle so that the navigation device is easy to see and operate by the driver. Make sure that the driver's view of the traffic is not impeded.

Caution! Do not attach the cradle within the working zone of any airbags.

Caution! Do not fasten the cradle too close to the steering wheel or other controls. The driver must not be obstructed in operating any car functions.

Caution! When installing the cradle, make sure that it will not pose a risk in the event of an accident.

Caution! Do not run cables directly next to safety-relevant devices and power supplies.

Caution! Check that the cradle is secured and adjusted properly before each journey. The suction cup may become loose after a while.
