About GPS
GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite navigation system developed by the U.S.
Department of Defense. GPS consists of 32 satellites orbiting around 11,000 miles above
the surface of the Earth. These satellites travel at speeds that allow them to orbit the planet
twice a day and emit a low-powered radio signal. These signals are received and recorded
using five ground stations with extremely accurate clocks. By using these extremely
accurate clocks, the ground stations can determine with great precision the position of
every satellite in their orbit. Your GPS receiver is capable of "reading" the signals
transmitted by these satellites. By knowing the position and distance of al least 4 satellites,
it's possible to accurately calculate the receiver's current latitude, longitude and elevation.
WAAS enhances the accuracy of your GPS. WAAS stands for Wide Area Augmentation
System and was developed by the Federal Aviation Administration to augment the
accuracy of GPS for aviation use. It consists of additional ground stations that are placed at
specific locations where the exact coordinates are known. When used with a master station,
the accuracy of satellite positioning signals can be improved to almost three meters.
The MERCURY 100 must scan and detect signals from at least 3 such satellites in order to
calculate your current location and movement. The MERCURY 100 is designed for
recreational use only. Please do not use this product for industrial or professional
surveying.

Thank You for Choosing the MERCURY 100
The lightness, compactness and user-friendly interface make the Mercury 100 an excellent
auxiliary navigation aid when cycling. It can not only give you a better understanding of your
cycling activities but also effectively manage cycling routes.
The MERCURY 100 provides only the information you need and nothing else. It is suitable
for use by all cyclists and is designed to be the easiest to use cycling GPS in the world. Its
satellite receiver works all around the world and will provide you with many years of useful
service. This manual will introduce you to the use and features of the MERCURY 100 so
you can optimize performance and take care of the device as well. To ensure that you
achieve the best performance and service life from the MERCURY 100, please read
carefully through these instructions before use.
Conditions for Use:
The MERCURY 100 is not designed for indoor or underwater use. The device uses GPS
satellites to calculate distances and is designed to serve as an auxiliary navigation aid for
bicycles between the temperatures 0°C to +50°C. Using the MERCURY 100 for cycling
activities therefore allows the device to deliver optimum performance.
If you find that any of the standard accessories listed in this manual are missing or
damaged, please contact your local distributor or retailer.

speed as ---.
6.2 Bike Mode
This is the default mode upon startup. There are three main modes, these being Bike
Waypoint
and Route
,
. Pressing on the "Power/Mode" button cycles
between Bike, WayPoint and Route modes.
1.
By default, the device starts in
mode. The first page shows the following items:
(1) Current riding time, shown as Time.
(2) Total cumulative distance ridden, shown as ODO in
MI or KM.
(3) Current speed, shown as mi/h or km/h.
(4) Arrow pointing north.
32
2.
After pressing the Select button, the displayed items become:
(1) Current riding time, shown as Time.
(2) Distance ridden so far, shown as DST in MI or KM.
(3) Current speed, shown as mi/h or km/h.
(4) Arrow pointing north.
3.
After pressing the Select button a second time, the displayed items become:
(1) Current riding time, shown as Time.
(2) Distance ridden so far, shown as DST in MI or KM.
(3) Maximum speed, shown as mi/h or km/h.
(4) Arrow pointing north.
4.
After pressing the Select button a third time, the displayed items become:
(1) Current riding time, shown as Time.
(2) Distance ridden so far, shown as DST in MI or KM.
(3) Average speed, shown as mi/h or km/h.
(4) Arrow pointing north.

(2) Current temperature, shown as TMP in °C or °F.
(3) Current calories, shown as cal if under 1Kcal and
as Kcal otherwise.
(4) Arrow pointing north.
34
6.3 Waypoint Mode
In Bike mode, press the "Power" button switches to Waypoint mode. At startup, waypoint A
is displayed. Press the Select button to cycle through waypoints A~D. When the "Power"
button is pressed to exit or access this mode, it will remember which waypoint (A~D) was
last displayed.
(1) Estimated time of arrival shown as TOA.
(2) Estimated direct line distance shown as DTG in MI
or KM.
(3) Current speed, shown as mi/h or km/h.
(4) Arrow pointing towards the destination.
Set Waypoint
Holding down the "Select" button for 3 seconds, opens the
display and makes the
current waypoint blink. For example, if waypoint B is currently displayed, waypoint B along
distance display will start blinking. Pressing the
with DTG and
"Reset/Mark" button (i.e. "Start/Stop" button) resets the waypoint. The DTG for the newly
marked waypoint should be 0.00. Now hold down the "Select" button for 3 seconds to close
the Setup mode and
display. The waypoint has now been set and the next time you
wish to ride to waypoint B, it will direct you to the marked waypoint. Marking a new waypoint
will override the previously marked waypoint.
When the rider is within 50m of waypoint A, B, C or D, a buzzer will sound 5 times (lasting 1
second each time at 0.5 second intervals). The arrow will also blink each time the buzzer
sounds. The user can press any button to stop the buzzer or wait for it to finish and the
arrow will continue blinking. When within 10m of the waypoint, all eight points of the
compass icon will start blinking and only revert to normal when the rider is more than 10m
away from the waypoint.
This item can only be calculated or displayed when GPS coordinates are available. When
GPS fix has not been acquired, time is shown as --:--:--, distance as ---- and speed as ---. If
speed is less than 5km/hr, time is shown as --:--:--.
35
6.4 Route Mode:
Pressing the "Select" button cycles between route destination ID from 1 through to 50.
When the rider approaches within 50m of the current destination ID, a buzzer will sound 5
times (lasting 1 second each time at 0.5 second intervals). The arrow will also blink each
time the buzzer sounds. The user can press any button to stop the buzzer or wait for it to
finish and the arrow will continue blinking. When within 10m of the destination, all eight
points of the compass icon will start blinking and the device will automatically move to the
next destination ID. If destination ID is 50, it will continue blinking just like Waypoint mode.
When leaving or entering Route mode, the device will remember the last destination ID
displayed.
If separate routes were created by the user (e.g. points 1~20 are for route 1, 22~30 are for
route 2), the device will guide the user to point 20 of route 1 and then stop. The user must
then press the Select button and skip to point 22 to enable navigation for route 2.
When GPS fix has not been acquired, time is shown as --:--:-- and distance as ----. If speed
is less than 5km/hr, time is shown as --:--:--
(1) Estimated time of arrival shown as TOA.
(2) Estimated direct line distance shown as DTG in MI
or KM.
(3) Current waypoint ID between 01~50.
(4) Arrow pointing towards the destination.
Mark Route
In Route mode (destinations 01~50), hold down the "Select" button for 3 seconds opens the
display. The current destination (01~50) will also start blinking. For example, if currently
set to destination ID 21, the number 21 will flash during Setup mode. The blinking items
include
, DTG and
distance reading. Pressing the "Reset/Mark" button
(i.e. "Start/Stop" button) the destination will be reset and its coordinates marked. The
calculated DTG should be 0.00. Use this method to mark all 50 waypoints.
