About Usage Modes
There are two usage modes:
Automobile and Pedestrian. In
Automobile mode, your nüvifone
calculates routes for automobiles.
These routes obey traffic laws, such
as one-way streets. Your nüvifone
uses typical automobile speeds when
estimating your arrival time.
In Pedestrian mode, your nüvifone
calculates routes for walking. These
routes avoid highways in favor
of smaller streets. Your nüvifone
uses typical walking speeds when
estimating your arrival time.
• If you are not navigating a route,
and the nüvifone is in the cradle,
it is in Automobile mode.
• If you are not navigating a route,
and the nüvifone is not in the
cradle, it is in Pedestrian mode.
• If you are navigating a route, the
nüvifone remains in the mode in
which the route was created.
• If you create a route that is longer
than 5 miles, the nüvifone uses
Automobile mode.
There are separate route preferences
for each usage mode. For more
information, see page 71.
Your nüvifone automatically
changes between Automobile mode
and Pedestrian mode based on the
following criteria:

About Traffic
This service is available as a paid
subscription. A data connection is
required for this feature.
When you are receiving traffic
information, the traffic icon
appears in the upper-left corner of
the Map page. The icon changes
color to indicate the severity of
traffic conditions on your route or on
the road you are currently traveling.
—traffic is flowing freely.
—moderate traffic congestion.
—very slow or stop-and-go
traffic.
NOTE: Traffic information and
delay times are not available in all
areas. For more information,

go to www.garmin.com/nulink
/trafficcoverage.
Understand Traffic on
Your Route
When calculating your route, the
nüvifone examines the current
traffic and automatically optimizes
the route for the shortest time. If a
severe traffic delay occurs on your
route while you are navigating, the
nüvifone automatically recalculates
the route. You might still be routed
through traffic if no better alternative
routes exist.
If a non-severe traffic delay occurs
on your route, the traffic icon
shows how much time the delay has
added to your route. This time is
already included in your estimated
arrival time.

About GPS Satellite
Signals
Your nüvifone must acquire GPS
(Global Positioning System) satellite
signals to navigate. The nüvifone
automatically attempts to acquire
satellite signals.
If you are indoors, near tall buildings
or trees, or in a parking garage, your
nüvifone might not acquire satellites.
To acquire satellite signals more
quickly, take your nüvifone outside,
78
to an area free from tall obstructions.
About the Battery
The
battery icon in the status
bar indicates the status of the internal
battery. To increase the accuracy of
the battery gauge, fully discharge
the battery and then fully charge it;
do not unplug the nüvifone until it is
totally charged.
Maximize the Battery Life
• Turn down the backlight from
the Home screen at Settings >
Display. Touch the button under
Brightness.
• Lock your nüvifone if you are not
using it. See page 9 and page 69
for more information.
• Do not leave your nüvifone in
direct sunlight. Avoid prolonged
exposure to excessive heat.�

Troubleshooting
Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
My nüvifone will not
acquire satellites.
• Ensure that the GPS simulator is turned off.
From the Home screen, touch Settings > System
> General > GPS Simulator > Off.
• Ensure that you are receiving satellite signals.
From the Home screen, touch View Map.
Touch the vehicle icon.
Touch
> Satellite Info.
• Verify that the GPS antenna is unobstructed. You
must be outdoors or in a vehicle and have a clear
view of the sky. Solid materials (except untinted
glass), buildings, and dense trees can block
satellite signals.
• Ensure that the GPS has enough time to initialize.
When the GPS is turned on for the first time, it
may take a few minutes to initialize.
My nüvifone will not
turn on.
• Charge the battery.
• Replace the battery. See page 79 for more
information.

my nüvifone, but I
receive a message
that battery charging
was suspended.
The battery might have exceeded the maximum
charging temperature. If the nüvifone is mounted,
remove it from the mount and place it somewhere out
of direct sunlight.
