1 Warnings and Safety information
The navigation system helps you find your way to your destination with the built-in
GPS receiver. The software does not transmit your GPS position; others cannot track
you.
If you accept it when first using the application, the software collects usage information
and GPS logs that may be used for improving the application and the quality and
coverage of maps. The data is processed anonymously; no one will be able to
track any personal information. If you change your mind later, you can enable or disable
the log collection in Settings (page 235).
It is important that you look at the display only when it is safe to do so. If you are the
driver of the vehicle, we recommend that you operate the software before you start your
journey. Plan the route before your departure and stop if you need to change the route.
You must obey the traffic signs and follow the road geometry. If you deviate from the
recommended route, the software changes the instructions accordingly.
Never place the product where it obstructs the driver’s view, where it is in the deployment
zone of an airbag or where it might cause injuries in an accident.
128
GB
2 Getting started

1. Select the written language of the application interface. Later you can change it
in Regional settings (page 234).
2. Read the End User Licence Agreement. Tap
to continue.
3. You are now asked whether you allow the software to collect usage information
and coverage of maps. Tap
to allow the anonymous
statistics or disable this function. Later you can turn them on or off individually
in Log collection settings (page 235).
4. The Configuration wizard starts. Tap

5. Select the language and speaker used for voice guidance messages. Later you
can change it in Sound and Warnings settings (page 234).
6. If needed, modify the time format and unit settings. Later you can change them

2.2 Buttons and other controls on the screen
When you are using the software, you usually tap buttons on the touch screen.
You only need to confirm selections or changes if the application needs to restart, it
needs to perform a major reconfiguration, or you are about to lose some of your data
or settings. Otherwise, the software saves your selections and applies the new settings
without confirmation as soon as you use the controls.

This map shows the current position (the Vehimarker, a blue arrow by default), the
recommended route (an orange line), and the surrounding map area.
When there is no GPS position, the Vehimarker is transparent. It shows your last known
position.
You see coloured dots circling around a satellite symbol in the top left corner. The more
green dots you see, the closer you are to get the valid GPS position

2.3.2 Position markers
2.3.2.1 Vehimarker and Lock-on-Road
When your GPS position is available, the software marks your current position with the
Vehimarker. By default, this marker is a blue arrow, but you can change this icon in
Settings.
The exact location of the Vehimarker depends on the vehicle type used for route
calculation and the navigation mode. Both can be set in Route settings (page 224).
•
If you choose pedestrian and/or off-road navigation: The Vehimarker is at your
exact GPS position. The direction of the icon shows your current heading.
•
In all other cases: The Vehimarker may not show your exact GPS position and
heading. If roads are near, it is aligned to the nearest road to suppress GPS
position errors, and the direction of the icon is aligned to the direction of the
road.
2.3.2.2 Selected map location (Cursor) and selected map object
You can mark a map location in the following ways:
•
Tap the map when navigating,
•
Tap the map when you are asked to confirm the destination at the end of a

) to make it visible at all zoom
The location of the Cursor can be used as the destination of the route, a new alert
point, you can search for Places around it, or you can save this location as one of your
Favourite destinations.
You can also select some of the objects on the map. If you tap the map at the icon of
a Place of Interest or an alert point, the object will be selected (you see a red circling
border around the object), and you can get information about this object or use it as a
route point.

GB
2.3.3 Objects on the map
2.3.3.1 Streets and roads
The software shows the streets in a way that is similar to how the paper road maps
show them. Their width and colours correspond to their importance: you can easily tell a
motorway from a small street.
2.3.3.2 Turn preview and Next street
When navigating a route, the top section of the Map screen shows information about
the next route event (manoeuvre) and the next street or the next city/town.
There is a field in the top left corner that displays the next manoeuvre. Both the type of
the event (turn, roundabout, exiting motorway, etc.) and its distance from the current
position are displayed.
Most of these icons are very intuitive. The following table lists some of the frequently
shown route events.

2.3.3.3 Lane information and Signposts
When navigating on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order
to follow the recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, the
software displays the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the
map. Highlighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
Where additional information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are
displayed at the top of the map. The colour and style of the signposts are similar to
the real ones you can see above road or by the roadside. They show the available
destinations and the number of the road the lane leads to.
All signposts look similar when cruising (when there is no recommended route). When
navigating a route, only the signpost that points to the lane(s) to be taken is displayed in
vivid colours; all others are darker.
If you want to hide the currently displayed signposts, tap any of them and the normal
Map screen returns until new signpost information is received.
2.3.3.4 Junction view
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and the needed
information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the junction. The lanes you
need to take are displayed with arrows. Signposts can also be present if information is
available.
If you want to hide the currently displayed junction, tap the picture and the Map screen
returns.
142
GB
2.3.3.5 Motorway exit services
You may need a petrol station or a restaurant during your journey. This feature displays
a new button on the map when you are driving on motorways.
Tap this button to open a panel with the details of the next few exits or service stations.
Tap any of them to display the exit area on the map. You can now easily add this exit as
a waypoint to your route if needed.
If you want to display other types of Places for the exits, you can change the icons in
Visual Guidance settings (page 232).
2.3.3.6 3D object types
The software supports the following 3D object types:
Elevated roads
3D landmarks
3D buildings
Description
3D terrain map data shows changes in terrain, elevations or depressions
in the land when you view the map in 2D, and use it to plot the route
map in 3D when you navigate. Hills and mountains are shown in the
background of the 3D map, and illustrated by colour and shading on the
2D map.
Complex intersections and vertically isolated roads (such as overpasses or
bridges) are displayed in 3D.
Landmarks are 3D artistic or block representations of prominent or wellknown objects.
3D block representation of full city building data containing actual building
size and position on the map.

In pedestrian mode it is the exact GPS
position.
If a vehicle is selected for route calculation
and roads are near, the symbol is snapped

Waypoint (intermediate
destination)
Normally if GPS position is available, the route starts
from the current position. If there is no valid GPS
position, the software uses the last known position as
the start point.
An intermediate destination of the route before
reaching the final destination.
Destination (end point)
The final destination of the route.
Route colour
The route always stands out with its colour on the
map, both in daytime and in night colour mode.
You can choose whether you want to use or avoid
certain road types (page 224). However, when the
software cannot avoid such roads, the route will
include them and it will show them in a colour that is
different from the route colour.
Streets and roads that
are excluded from the
navigation
2.3.4 Manipulating the map

3 On-road navigation
When first started, the software calculates routes using the road network of the high
quality vector maps provided with the product.
You can set up your route in different ways:
•
If you need a route for immediate navigation, you can select the destination and
start navigating to it right away (normal navigation).
•
You can also plan a route independently of your current GPS position or even
without GPS reception. To achieve this you need to set a new starting point in
My Route / Edit Route by tapping the flag icon at the current position. This will
also turn off the GPS receiver so that the route is not recalculated when a new
position is received.
You can plan routes with multiple destinations. Select the first destination. Then select a
second destination and add it to your route to create a multi-point route. You can add as
many destinations to your route as you like.
You can also use the software for off-road navigation. For details, see page 1467.
3.1 Selecting the destination of a route
•
Enter a full address or a part of an address, for example a street name without
a house number or the names of two intersecting streets (page 151).
•
Enter an address with postal code (page 162). This way you do not need to
select the name of the city/town and the search for street names might be faster
as well.
•
Use a built-in Place of Interest as your destination (page 165).
•
Select a location on the map with the Find on Map feature (page 181).
•
Use a previously saved Favourite destination (page 182).
•
Select a location from the History of previously used destinations (page 185).

3.1.1.6 Tips on entering addresses quickly
•
When you are entering the name of a city/town or a street:

•
As you are typing, the most likely result is always displayed in the input
field. If the guess is correct, tap
•
•
to select it.
After entering a couple of letters, tap
items that contain the specified letters.
to list the
You can speed up finding an intersection:
•
Search first for the street with a less common or less usual name; fewer
letters are enough to find it.
•
If one of the streets is shorter, search for that one first. You can then find
the second one faster.
•
You can search for both the type and the name of a road. If the same word
appears in several names, for example in the name of streets, roads and
avenues, you can obtain the result faster if you enter the first letter of the street
type: For example, enter ‚PI A’ to obtain Pine Avenue and skip all Pine Streets
and Pickwick Roads.
•
You can also search in postal codes. As postal codes consist of only a few
characters, this is usually faster than entering the name of the city/town.
You can select your destination from the Places of Interest included with the software.
Using the same screen, you can find a Place in different ways:

•
- Charge roads are pay roads where you can
purchase a pass or vignette to use the road for a longer period of time.
They can be enabled or disabled separately from toll roads.
•
- The software includes toll roads (pay roads
where there is a per-use charge) in the routes by default. If you disable
toll roads, the software plans the best toll-free route.
•
- The software includes ferries in a planned route
by default. However, a map does not necessarily contain information
about the accessibility of temporary ferries. You might also need to pay
a fare on ferries.
•
- The software excludes unpaved roads by
default: unpaved roads can be in a bad condition and usually you
cannot reach the speed limit on them.

4 Off-road navigation
When first started, the software calculates routes using the road network of the high
quality vector maps provided with the product. You can switch the application to off-road
mode in Navigation settings in one of the following ways:
•
From the Main menu, tap
and then
•
,
,
.
From the Map screen, tap
,
and then
.
Most of the procedures described for on-road navigation also apply to off-road navigation.
However, there are some that are not available in this navigation mode (for example you
cannot open the itinerary as you have no manoeuvres just route points and straight lines
between them).
4.1 Selecting the destination of the route
4.2 Navigating in off-road mode
The real difference between the on-road and off-road modes is the navigation itself.
When you are on the Map screen with an off-road route:
•
your position and heading is not aligned with the nearest road and
•
there is no turn by turn navigation just a recommended direction.
207
Technical changes and errors excepted.
Selecting the start point or a destination (waypoint or final destination) is the same as
described at on-road navigation. The only difference is that route points are linked to
form a route with straight lines regardless of the road network and traffic regulations.
GB
You see a orange line drawn between your current position and the next destination to
reach. The Turn Preview field in the top left corner shows a compass with your bearing
and the distance of the next destination.
When you reach a waypoint, the orange line will show the direction to the next destination.
(Future legs of the route are shown with orange lines.)
When you reach the final destination, navigation ends.

GB
5 Reference Guide
On the following pages you will find the description of the different concepts and menu
screens of the software.
5.1 Concepts
5.1.1 Smart Zoom
Smart Zoom provides much more than just a usual automatic zoom feature:
•
While following a route: when approaching a turn, it will zoom in and raise
the view angle to let you easily recognise your manoeuvre at the next junction.
If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be
flat so you can see the road in front of you.
•
While driving without an active route: Smart Zoom will zoom in if you
drive slowly and zoom out when you drive at high speed.
5.1.2 Daytime and night colour themes
•
Daytime colours are similar to paper road maps, and the menus are bright.
•
The night colour themes use dark colours for large objects to keep the
average brightness of the screen low.
The software offers different daytime and night colour profiles. It can also switch
automatically between the daytime and the night schemes based on the current time
and GPS position a few minutes before sunrise, when the sky has already turned
bright, and a few minutes after sunset, before it becomes dark.
209
Technical changes and errors excepted.
The software uses different colour themes during the day and during the night for both
the map and the menu screens.
GB
5.1.3 Tunnel view
When entering a tunnel, the map is replaced with a generic tunnel image so that surface
roads and buildings cannot distract you.
The top-down overview of the tunnel helps you orientate yourself. The remaining distance
in the tunnel is also displayed.
After leaving the tunnel, the original map view returns.
This feature can be turned off in Settings (page 232).
5.1.4 Route calculation and recalculation
The software calculates the route based on your preferences:
•
Route planning methods:
•
: Gives a quick route if you can travel at or near
the speed limit on all roads. Usually the best selection for fast and
normal cars.
•
: Gives a route that has the smallest total distance
of all possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles.
•
: Gives a quick but fuel efficient route based on
the fuel consumption data given in Route settings (page 224). Travel
cost and CO2 emission calculations are estimations only. They cannot
take elevations, curves and traffic conditions into account.
210
GB
: For vehicle types where Green routing is not
available, this method combines the benefits of Fast and Short: The
software calculates as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes
other roads as well to save fuel.
•
: Results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult
manoeuvres. With this option, you can make the software to take, for
example, the motorway instead of a series of smaller roads or streets.
Vehicle types:
When creating a new vehicle profile, select one of the below vehicle types.
Besides the below mentioned conditions, dimension, weight and freight
hazard restrictions can also be taken into account when planning a route.
•
:
•
Manoeuvre restrictions and directional constraints are taken into
account when planning a route.
•
Roads are used only if access for cars is allowed.
•
Private roads and resident-only roads are used only if they are
inevitable to reach the destination.

Walkways are excluded from routes.
•
:
•
Neither manoeuvre restrictions nor directional constraints are
taken into account when planning a route.
•
Roads are used only if access for pedestrians is allowed.
•
Controlled-access roads are excluded from routes.
•
A private road is used only if the destination is there.
•
Speed limits are not used in route calculation and an average

GB
Whenever data exist, route calculation takes into account statistical traffic data for the
given day of week and time of day (page 128).
The software automatically recalculates the route if you deviate from the proposed
itinerary.
For further information about Route settings, see page 224.
5.1.5 Green routing
Route calculation is not only about finding the quickest or shortest route. For some of the
vehicle types, you can also check the fuel consumption and CO2 emission when planning
a route, and you can create cost effective routes with less effect on the environment.
In Route settings, you can edit the parameters of the selected vehicle. Enter the fuel
consumption values and the price of the fuel. You can also select whether you want to
see the difference between your route and the green route even if the selected routing
method is not Green.
After the above parameters are set, select
as route planning
method to get a fast but also fuel efficient route. Note that travel cost and CO2 emission
calculations are estimations only. They cannot take elevations, turns, curves and
traffic conditions into account. Also, this routing is not meant to give you the „greenest”
route of all. It is still important to travel quickly so the result is a fast route with low fuel
consumption and CO2 emission.
With a vehicle type where green routing is selectable, whichever route planning method
is selected, the Green details are also shown when you confirm the route:
214
GB
If the selected route planning method is not Green, and you have allowed the application
to show the green alternative, the price, fuel consumption and CO2 emission differences
between your selected route and the Green route are also shown on this screen:
Tap the field with these details to switch the route to Green immediately.
5.1.6 Road safety cameras and other proximity alert points
There is a special proximity warning for road safety cameras (like speed or red light
cameras) and other proximity alert points (like schools or railroad crossings). These alert
points are preloaded in the software. You can download more from www.naviextras.com
or you can upload points in a specific text file if needed.
You can also add your own alert points or edit the preloaded or uploaded points. See
page 203 for details.
The application can warn you when you approach road safety cameras like speed
cameras or dangerous areas like school zones or railroad crossings. You can set up the
different alert types individually in Sound and Warning settings (page 221). •
Audio warning: beeps can be played (natural voice) or the type of the alert can
be announced (TTS) while you are approaching one of these points, and an
extra alert can warn you if you exceed the given speed limit while approaching.
•
Visual warning: the type of the alert point, its distance and the related speed
limit appear on the Map screen while you are approaching one of these
cameras.
For some of the alert points, the enforced or expected speed limit is available. For these
points, the audio alert can be different if you are below or above the given speed limit.
215
Technical changes and errors excepted.
The following alert types are available:
GB
•
Only when speeding: The audio alert is only played when you exceed the given
speed limit.
•
When approaching: The audio alert is always played when approaching one of
these alert points. In order to draw your attention, the alert can is different when
you exceed the speed limit.
The warning for road safety cameras is disabled when you are in a country
where road safety camera warning is prohibited. However, you must ensure on
your own liability that using this feature is legal in the country where you intend
to use it.
Note!
5.1.7 Speed limit warning
Maps may contain information about the speed limits of the road segments. The software
is able to warn you if you exceed the current limit. This information may not be available
for your region (ask your local dealer), or may not be fully correct for all roads in the map.
The maximum speed set in the vehicle profile is also used for this warning. The software
alerts you if you exceed the preset value even if the legal speed limit is higher.
Speed warning can be fine-tuned in Sound and Warning settings (page 221).
You can set the relative speed above which the application initiates the warning.
The following alert types are available: •
Audio warning: you receive a verbal warning when you exceed the speed limit
with the given percentage.
•
Visual warning: the current speed limit is shown on the map when you exceed it
(for example:
).
You can also choose to see the speed limit sign on the map all the time.

5.1.8 Battery and GPS position quality indicators
You can find useful information in the top corners of menu screens.
In the top right corner, the GPS reception quality icon shows the current accuracy of the
position information.
Icon
Description
The software has no connection to the GPS receiver: GPS navigation
is not possible.
Devices with a built-in GPS receiver are permanently connected. On
such devices, the icon does not appear in normal circumstances.
The software is connected to the GPS receiver, but the signal is too
weak and the receiver cannot determine the GPS position.
GPS navigation is not possible.
Only a few satellites are received. Position information is available, but
elevation (altitude) cannot be calculated.
GPS navigation is possible, but the position error may be significant.
Altitude information is available, the position is a 3D position.
GPS navigation is possible.
5.1.9 Traffic information in route planning
The recommended route is not always the same between two points. Offline statistical
traffic information (historical speed information or traffic patterns) can be taken into
account in the route calculation based on the time of day and the day of week whenever
suitable data exists. The function is subject to data availability.
Technical changes and errors excepted.
You can display the historical traffic information on the map if you browse the map
and select this option from the More menu. A 2D map is displayed with road segments
coloured by the density of the traffic in the given period. The current information is shown
when you open the screen. Modify the day of week and the time of day to see the desired
period.
217
GB
5.1.9.1 Historical traffic
If statistical traffic information is stored with the map data, the software can take them
into account when planning a route. In normal cases, these statistics help you avoid
usual traffic jams on the given day of week in the given hour but in some cases like on
public holidays that fall on normal weekdays, they can be misleading. You can disable
this feature in Traffic settings (page 128).
You can display statistical traffic information on the map if you browse the map and
select this option from the More menu.

Button
Description
You can set the type of vehicle you will use to navigate the route. Based
upon this setting, some of the road types can be excluded from the route, or
some of the restrictions may not be taken into account in route calculation.
You can edit the parameters of the selected vehicle profile, or you can even
create new vehicle profiles if you tap More.
On-road navigation creates a turn by turn itinerary using the road network
on the map. Switch to off-road navigation to navigate between destinations
in a straight line.
The route calculation can be optimised for different situations and vehicle
types by changing the planning method. See below for details.
If the selected routing method is not Green, you can have your route
compared to the best green alternative on the screen when confirming the
route. If this alternative is much better than the selected method, you can
quickly switch to Green mode.
To let the route fit your needs, you can also set which road types are to be considered for
or to be excluded from the route if possible.
Excluding a road type is a preference. It does not necessarily mean total prohibition.
If your destination can only be accessed using some of the excluded road types, they
will be used but only as much as necessary. In this case a warning icon will be shown
on the My Route screen, and the part of the route not matching your preference will be
displayed in a different colour on the map.
In the list of road types you can see in how many segments and what total length of the
road type is used in the current route.

Charge roads are pay roads where you can purchase a pass or vignette to
use the road for a longer period of time. They can be enabled or disabled
separately from toll roads.
The software includes toll roads (pay roads where there is a per-use
charge) in the routes by default. If you disable toll roads, the software
plans the best toll-free route.
The software includes ferries in a planned route by default. However, a
map does not necessarily contain information about the accessibility of
temporary ferries. You might also need to pay a fare on ferries.
The software excludes unpaved roads by default: unpaved roads can be

Route Planning Method types:
Button
Description
Gives a quick route if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all roads.
Usually the best selection for fast and normal cars.
Gives a short route to minimise the distance to travel. Usually practical for
pedestrians, cyclists or slow vehicles. Searching for a short route regardless
of the speed, this route type is rarely practical for normal vehicles.
Gives a quick but fuel efficient route based on the fuel consumption
data given in Route settings (page 224). Travel cost and CO2 emission
calculations are estimations only. They cannot take elevations, curves and
traffic conditions into account.
For vehicle types where Green routing is not available, this method
combines the benefits of Fast and Short: the software calculates as if it
were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other roads as well to save fuel.
Results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult manoeuvres. With this
option, you can make the software to take, for example, the motorway
instead of a series of smaller roads or streets.
5.3.4 User profiles
If more drivers use the software for navigating, their settings can be remembered by
using one of the user profiles. Rename the profiles after tapping the edit button on the

map. You can turn this feature on or off.
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and
the needed information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the
junction. You can turn this feature on or let the map be displayed for the
whole route.
When entering tunnels, the surface roads and buildings can be disturbing.
This feature shows a generic picture of a tunnel instead of the map. A topdown overview of the tunnel and remaining distance are also displayed.
Turn on the route progress bar to see your route as a straight line on the
left side of the map. The blue arrow represents your current position and
moves up as you travel. Waypoints and Traffic events are also displayed
on the line.
When you slow down while driving on a motorway, there is a chance
that you are in a traffic jam so the software offers you a detour using the
next exit. The message shows you distance of the exit and the difference
in distance and estimated time compared to the original route. You can

6 Glossary
2D/3D GPS reception
The GPS receiver uses satellite signals to calculate its (your) position and needs at
least four signals to give a three-dimensional position, including elevation. Because the
satellites are moving and because objects can block the signals, your GPS device might
not receive four signals. If three satellites are available, the receiver can calculate the
horizontal GPS position but the accuracy is lower and the GPS device does not give
you elevation data: only 2D reception is possible.
Active route
The currently navigated route. Whenever the destination is set, the route is active until
you delete it, reach your destination or you quit the software. See also: Route.
City Centre
The city/town centre is not the geometric centre of the city/town but an arbitrary point
the map creators have chosen. In towns and villages, it is usually the most important
intersection; in larger cities, it is one of the important intersections.
Colour theme
The software comes with different colour themes for daytime or night use of the map
and menu screens. Themes are custom graphic settings and they can have different
colours for streets, blocks or surface waters in 2D and 3D modes, and they display
shades or shadows in different ways in 3D mode.
One daytime scheme and one night scheme is always selected for the map and for the
menus. the software uses them when it switches from day to night and back.
236
GB
GPS accuracy
Several factors have impact on the deviation between your real position and the one
given by the GPS device. For example, signal delay in the ionosphere or reflecting
objects near the GPS device have a different and varying impact on how accurately the
GPS device can calculate your position.
Map
The software works with digital maps which are not simply the computerised versions of
traditional paper maps. Similarly to the paper road maps, the 2D mode of digital maps
show you streets, roads, and elevation is also shown by colours.
In 3D mode, you can see the altitude differences, for example valleys and mountains,
elevated roads, and in selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also
displayed.
You can use digital maps interactively: you can zoom in and out (increase or decrease
the scale), you can tilt them up and down, and rotate them left and right. In GPSsupported navigation, digital maps facilitate route planning.
North-up map orientation
In North-up mode the map is rotated so its top always faces North. This is the orientation
for example in Find on Map.
Special alert points for speed, red light or bus lane cameras. Different data sources are
available. You can configure the software to warn you when you approach one of these
cameras.
Detecting the location of Road Safety Cameras is prohibited in certain countries. It is
the sole responsibility of the driver to check whether this feature can be used during the
trip.
The software is capable of showing and warning for more than just cameras. Various
other types of proximity alert points like school zones and railway crossings are also
available.
237
Technical changes and errors excepted.
Road Safety Camera
GB
Route
A sequence of route events, i.e. manoeuvres (for example, turns and roundabouts) to
reach the destination. The route contains one start point and one or more destinations.
The start point is the current (or last known) position by default. If you need to see a
future route, the start point can be replaced with any other given point.
Track-up map orientation
In Track-up mode the map is rotated so its top always points in the current driving
direction. This is the default orientation in 3D map view mode.
Vehimarker
The current position is shown with a blue arrow on the map by default. The direction
of the blue arrow shows the current heading. This position marker can be replaced with
different 3D vehicle symbols. You can even specify different Vehimarkers for different
route types (depending on which vehicle type is selected for route calculation).
