Important information for road traffic safety
Operation while driving
As a driver you are solely responsible for your road safety.
Use this equipment only in situations where you keep complete control of your vehicle at all times!
Remember that, at a speed of 50 kph, you travel a distance of almost 14 m within one second.
Route guidance
The route guidance system provides you with driving recommendations only. It is always up to you to take another route.
When leaving the recommended route, the system will automatically calculate a new one leading to the desired destination.
This can either be done immediately or after the system has prompted you twice „Make a U-turn, if possible“. The route
guidance function only provides information for the individual vehicle. The system does not include possible limitations for
trucks or coaches (e.g. with respect to max. permissible height or weight). The TravelPilot provides assistance regarding oneway streets, pedestrian areas and turning regulations. It is your responsibility to pay attention to the current traffic
situation at all times!

Product information
Scope of delivery
The TravelPilot RG 05 is an active route guidance system.
After having inserted the corresponding navigation CD containing the
area of the current vehicle position and the destination area, you can
use this system in order to be guided to your destination. Discs for
other countries or Merian Scout travel guides are under preparation
or already available.
TravelPilot RG 05 (for the Berlin system)
The navigation system comprises a high-performance processing
unit including a CD-ROM disc drive, a magnetic field sensor, two
wheel sensors, a shunt for the rear window defogger, a GPS receiver
and the current CD-ROM.
Quick reference
The travel recommendations for route guidance are output acoustically and visually.
Using a separate loudspeaker the system provides you with precise
information, for example when having to make a turn.
The volume and tone of the voice output can be controlled or switched
off completely.
On the display you can find the same information offered in a visual
form. In addition, the system shows you the name of the currently used
road as well as the current distance to the destination.
If you have missed a turn, the TravelPilot navigator will re-calculate a
new route within a few seconds. Therefore, it is no problem if you
decide to „take to the back roads“ although the navigator first gives you
another route recommendation.
The system „knows“ one-way streets, pedestrian areas, play streets,
turning regulations etc. and takes them into consideration when
calculating the individual vehicle route.
Basically, to start the route guidance function, the following five steps
are required:
1. Switch on the Berlin.
2. Activate the navigation function by pressing the AUX toggle switch.
3. Enter your destination via:
CITY and
CENTRE or
STREET/JUNCTION or
OTHER LOCAL.
4. START GUIDANCE
5. Start to travel following the direction of the arrow.
After the system has completed the route calculation, follow the
driving recommendations provided.

Autonomous route guidance
After entering the destination and activating the route guidance
function, the system begins to calculate the route leading to your
destination. You can now start to drive.
The system provides you with an acoustic and visual message saying
“the route (to destination) is being calculated”.
To determine the most favourable route, the system gives priority to
motor and expressways. After a few seconds you will hear the
information “The route is calculated” or the first driving recommendation.
When the voice output function is switched on, you will hear all
important route guidance information via a separate loudspeaker.
Day/night mode
You can switch the monitor from full colour representation to a dimmed
red picture.
This is particularly advisable when travelling at night or every time the
bright, full-colour representation is found to be disturbing.
To change over,
• Hold down the radio volume knob for approximately 2 seconds
until the monitor picture has changed.

CD-ROM
The data required for the route guidance function is digitally stored on
the CD-ROM. For more information on the contents please refer to the
CD booklet.
Calibration
Caution: A faulty calibration can lead to a complete failure of the
system. In case of doubt, please contact your TravelPilot dealer!
For example, a re-calibration of the system will become necessary if
the message “OFF ROAD” is frequently displayed although you are
driving on a digitised road.
Iron or other ferrous materials close to the compass can lead to faulty
navigation results.
This can be something placed on the rear shelf but also a roof rack.
If you cannot eliminate the cause leading to the error, the system
needs to be re-calibrated. For this purpose, drive through a circle of
at least 100 m in length and make sure that you reach exactly the point
from which you started out (max. permissible tolerance one vehicle
length).
For the drive you should choose a free area away from large buildings
which would distort the calibration.
If you have found an appropriate place, you can start the calibration.
For this, follow the instructions displayed on the monitor.

Changing the CD
^
=
The CD-ROM can only be changed if the vehicle is stationary. The
system must be switched on. Open the flap on the navigation
computer and
• press the
button.
The cartridge ejects. You can now put a different disc into the cartridge
(label side facing up, cartridge in the direction of the arrow) and slowly
insert it into the CD slot. The cartridge will be automatically transported
to the operating position and the navigation computer will start reading
the information.
Note:
After having changed the CD the language will be re-booted.
The booting of a language can take up to 20 minutes. During this
period the voice output function is unavailable and the input functions
are delayed.
Change of tyres
When changing the tyres or wheel rims make sure that the wheel
sensors remain intact. If the vehicle is to be equipped with new wheel
rims, the latter have to be fitted with magnetic strips. The system must
be re-calibrated each time the tyres are changed (e.g. summer/winter
tyres). For this purpose, please contact your TravelPilot dealer.
Normal wear and tear of the tyres is automatically taken into consideration by the system.
