Viewing your GPS Position
As soon as you enter Map mode the GPS will begin acquiring a GPS lock. When a lock has been acquired the
Padlock icon will turn solid. When the button is solid, tap the button and your location will be displayed on the
map with the Position icon. As you move, the position icon will stay in the centre of the screen and the map
will scroll underneath automatically.
To check the current strength of your GPS signal tap the Extended Menu icon followed by the Settings &
Overlay icon to display the drop-down menu. From the menu select GPS > Satellites to display current signal
information. At least three green bars are required for a GPS lock, with more bars providing a more accurate
fix.
In normal use the Adventurer 3500 should be able to obtain a GPS lock within a couple of minutes. If the GPS
is being used for the first time, or has not been used for some time then it may take a little longer to acquire
your position.
Viewing additional GPS information
The Adventurer 3500 also allows you to view additional GPS information such as your current positional
coordinates (in OS grid format or Lat/Lon), your speed, heading, average speed, average heading and altitude.
To display this information tap the Extended Menu icon, follwed by Overlay & Settings and then from the
drop-down menu select GPS > Position.
This window can be moved by tapping and holding on the top blue bar and dragging to the required location,
or resized by tapping and holding in the bottom right-hand corner and dragging to the required size. You
can also customize the data displayed in this window, as well as the units used (mph, kph etc). Please see
Additional Memory-Map Settings on page 9 for details.
Working with routes, marks and tracks
When using the Adventurer 3500 there are three unique forms of navigational data (called Overlays) you can
work with – Routes, Marks and Tracks.
Routes are a sequence of connected waypoints of where you intend to go, for example a walk or ride that
you have created or downloaded and wish to follow.
Creating Routes
Routes can be created in the Memory-Map software on your PC, or downloaded from popular route sharing
websites such as TrailZilla (www.trailzilla.com), and then trasferred to your Adventurer 3500. Please refer
to the help file in the Memory-Map PC software for details on how to create routes in the PC software.
Instructions on how to transfer routes from the Memory-Map PC software to your Adventurer 3500 can be
found on page 11 of this manual.
Although you will find it easier to create routes on your PC and download them to the Adventurer 3500, you
can also create routes on the GPS itself. To do this first position the map where you want the route to begin.
Tap the Extended Menu icon followed by Overlay & Settings. Select Overlay > Create > Route from the
drop-down menu.
Tap on the map where you want the route to begin and then tap the map again where you want the next
waypoint to be, and so on. The GPS will automatically connect the waypoints together to form a route and
join them with a line. When you have finished adding waypoints double tap the screen when placing the last
waypoint and the device will exit route creation mode.
If you have reached the edge of the map and wish to add more waypoints, end the route as described
above and then scroll the map so that you can still see your last waypoint and the map area you wish to add
more waypoints into. Tap and hold on the last waypoint and then from the menu select Add WP After and
continue adding waypoints as required.
You can access more information about the route, view a hill profile, add more waypoints or delete the route
by tapping and holding on any one of the lines between the waypoints to access the Route menu (think of
tapping and holding the same as right-clicking the mouse button on a PC).
Following a Route
When you are following a route the GPS will direct you to each waypoint and provide detailed route
information, such as distance, bearing and time to next waypoint, estimated time of arrival at the end of the
route, distance to the end of the route and more.
To begin following a route, locate the route on screen and then tap and hold on one of the lines between the
waypoints. From the menu that appears, select Follow Route and the two navigation windows will appear.
Provided you have a GPS position, the window on the left will show the direction you need to head to reach
the next waypoint, and the box on the right will show the route information.
As you progress through the route the GPS will automatically select the next waypoint, ensuring you are
always on course and heading in the right direction.
To stop following a route, simply close both of the navigation windows.
Marks are single waypoints that are not part of a route, for example a mark identifying a meeting point, or
the location of a geocache.
Creating Marks
Like routes, marks can either be created on your PC and downloaded to the Adventurer 3500, or created
on the GPS itself. Please refer to the help file in the Memory-Map PC software for details on how to create
marks in the software. Instructions on how to download marks from the Memory-Map PC software to your
Adventurer 3500 can be found on page 11 of this manual.
Creating marks on the GPS itself is easy. Simply move the map to where you would like to drop the mark. Tap
the Extended Menu option followed by the Mark icon (shown above). Now tap on the screen where you
would like the mark and you will see a flag added to the map.
You can edit the properties of the mark, such as changing its name, or fine tuning its grid reference by
tapping and holding on the mark and selecting Properties from the menu. When in the Mark Properties
window you can change the name of the mark by tapping inside the Name box and then tapping the Kbd
button to access the keyboard. You can use the same method to fine tune the position of the mark, or add
notes for the mark, such as the telephone number of a pub. When you are finished editing the mark, tap OK
to save the changes and return to the map.
Goto a Mark
The Adventurer 3500 can direct you to a mark, giving you the direction to head towards and how far you are
from the mark. To use the Goto Mark feature, either locate the mark you would like to head toward, tap and
hold on the mark and select Goto Mark, or tap the Mark button and select the mark you would like to head
to.
Two navigation windows will appear, with the window on the left showing the direction you need to head to
reach the mark, and the box on the right showing navigation information.
To stop navigating to the mark simply close both of the navigation windows.
To delete the mark tap and hold on the mark and select Delete from the menu.
Tracks are essentially a breadcrumb trail of where you have been, as recorded by the GPS. As you move, the
Adventurer 3500 will automatically record the track, showing where you have been.
Tracks are automatically recorded by the GPS when you are moving and are represented by a solid line that will
appear behind your GPS position. The track will automatically record details on how far you have gone, how
long you have been moving, your maximum speed and your average speed.
Tracks can be saved to your PC to review and keep. Please see details on how to do this on page 11.
Viewing track / trip information
To view details on your trip, such as distance covered, maximum speed and total time moving, tap and hold on
the track and select Properties from the menu. You can do this as the track is being recorded to see up-tothe-second details, or once you have finished your journey to get an overview of the trip as a whole.
You can also view trip distance information by pressing the button on the front of the unit. Total distance
travelled will be displayed on the screen, along with brightness controls and options to put the unit into sleep
mode or exit Memory-Map and return to the main menu.
Finding a location by name
If you know the name of a location you can jump straight to it by using the Find Place feature. Enter the
Extended Menu then Overlay & Settings and select Find Place from the drop-down menu.
The Find Place search works on a filter, so the more letters of the place you search for the less results there
will be to look through. For example if you typed “Bir” then the search would return hundreds of places all with
“Bir” in the name. If you searched for “Birmingham”, however, then fewer results will be returned allowing you
to quickly locate the place you were searching for.
To search for a place tap in the Find box and then tap the Kbd button in the bottom corner to bring up the
onscreen keyboard. Now, type in your search and then press the - -> button to perform the search. The results
will be displayed below.
To display the location on the map simply double tap its name in the list. If you want to automatically drop a
mark at the location as well make sure the Create Mark box is ticked first.
Finding a location by grid reference
If you know the grid reference (or Latitude / Longitude) of a location then you can display it using the Find
Place feature. Follow the steps above to enter the Find Place menu and tap in the Coordinates box. Bring up
the keyboard and type in the grid reference you want to locate, e.g. SU 62392 51191. Press the Enter key on
the keyboard and the location will be displayed on the map. If you want to place a mark at the chosen location
make sure the Create Mark box is ticked first.
Additional Memory-Map Options
Tapping the Extended Menu followed by Overlay & Settings brings up the drop-down menu providing
access to additional options and settings.
Map – View all maps installed on the Adventurer 3500 and open the one of your choice. Whenever you send a
new map to the Adventurer 3500, access the map list first and tap Refresh to ensure the map list is updated.
Overlay – Manage the overlays (routes, marks and tracks) on your device. Options include the overlay
manager, which allows you to work with your overlays, creating and deleting overlays and showing and
hiding overlays. You can also open overlays sent from your PC, or save overlays ready for transfer to
your PC. Please see page 11 for more details.
Find Place – Search for a location or grid reference. Please see page 9 for more details.
Settings – change settings for the device, including units of measure (mph, kph) and position format (British
National Grid, Lat / Lon etc). The Settings options also lets you customise the navigation data displayed when
following a route or a mark, and when viewing GPS position information.
GPS – view satellite signal strength and additional GPS information. You can also drop a mark at your current
GPS position from here.
License – allows you to check the status of the map licences on your microSD card.
Help – provides a quick refresher about the information in this manual. Perfect for when you are out and
about.
Exit – saves all overlay data and then exits map mode, returning you to the main menu. Always use this (or
the Exit icon) to exit Memory-Map before turning off the device.
Additional Device Options
Additional options for the Adventurer 3500 can be
accessed from the Settings button on the main screen
when you turn on the GPS. These settings include:
Brightness –Adjust the brightness of the backlight. The
brighter the backlight the easier the unit will be able to be
seen in daylight. A bright backlight setting will consume
more power, however.
Volume –Change the volume level from the internal
speaker. You can also turn off the sound made when
tapping the screen by setting Touch Tone to off.
Language – Change the language of the main menu. The language in Memory-Map itself can be changed
separately, if required.
Touch Calibration – Recalibrate the touch screen if you are finding screen taps have become inaccurate. The
screen will be calibrated for you initially, so you do not need to do this unless required.
Power Save – Allows you to control whether the backlight or the device turns off after a period of inactivity.
Due to the way Memory-Map records your tracklog when running we strongly recommend setting the Power
Down Time to Always On when using Memory-Map on the device. This feature can be used with other
applications available for the device, such as the Golf software. The Backlight feature can only be used in
other Apps available for the device.
Information – Provides information on the hardware and allows you to update the device as updates are
available.
Charging the device and getting the most from the battery
The Adventurer 3500’s battery can be charged using the included mains charger, car charger or USB charger
when connected to your PC. For the quickest charge we recommend using the mains charger. The light on the
front of the unit will turn red when charging and then turn green when the unit is fully charged.
When using the GPS you can quickly put the unit to sleep by pressing the button on the front of the unit and
then selecting Sleep from the menu. When in Sleep mode the Adventurer 3500 will go into a low power state,
preserving the battery. When you press the button on the front of the unit the 3500 will go straight into map
mode.

7) Digital Map Shop maps need to be activated on your Adventurer 3500 SD card as well as your PC. The
following screen tells you much credit you have left to activate on a Mobile Device / SD Card and how much
credit the map you are sending to the SD card will use.
If you are happy that this the area you want to send and you have sufficient credit then click Activate and
the map will transfer to your GPS and unlock.
If the Activate button does not appear this will mean that the area you are trying to send exceeds the

Setting up a new SD card to use in the Adventurer 3500
If you wish you can use a larger SD card, up to 16GB, in the 3500 to install your existing disc based maps onto.
Please note that you cannot copy the included full OS 1:50k Great Britain map onto a new SD card, as this map
is locked to the original card for security reasons.
To setup the new SD card with the Adventurer you will need to do the following:
1) Copy the following folders from the original SD card to the new SD card.
2577
ASIMAP
Pictures
Userdata
The best way to do this is to copy the files from the original SD card to a folder on your computer and then
copy the contents of this folder to the new SD card.
2) Licence the new SD card to work with the GPS. To licence the SD card please do the following:
• Insert the new SD card in to the Adventurer 3500 and start Memory-Map on the device. A message will
appear stating “The license for resource GPS Features has not been activated”. Tap OK and then exit the
program by tapping the Extended Menu button and then the Exit button.
• Connect the 3500 to your PC and then tap the Press to Connect button. Open Memory-Map on your PC
and then click Help > Licence Management and then the SD Card… option.
• In the window that appears click GPS Features in the list so that is highlighted and then click Activate. If
you are asked to log in enter your user name and password. You may be asked to give the SD card a name
so that you can recognise it later, so fill in a unique name for the card if prompted.
If you are asked to Register A Serial Number enter the one from the Software Installation Guide in the
Adventurer 3500. Once activated, the status of GPS Features should change to Full, No Expiration.
Your card is now ready to use with your Adventurer 3500!
Please be aware that the serial number included with the Adventurer 3500 will allow you to activate the GPS
functionality on up to two SD cards. If you wish to move the licence from one SD card to another you can do
so by logging into the website below and clicking the Migrate Licence button.

Important - If your Adventurer included an SD card with mapping on, or you have purchased an SD card
with mapping on, then this mapping data cannot be transferred to a new SD card. The map copyright holders
require mapping to be encrypted and locked to the SD card it was purchased on, meaning the map cannot be
moved or copied to a new SD card.
Additional ready-to-use SD cards, which are pre-licensed are available to buy direct from Memory-Map from
