Getting started
Congratulations on your purchase of the AUDIOVOX NVX226 system.
Your AUDIOVOX NVX226 system can guide you to the destination of your
choice using signals from Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) orbiting the
earth.
There are 24 GPS satellites orbiting the earth. A GPS device can calculate
your position on the earth if it can receive signals from at least three of
these satellites. When it receives at least four signals, a GPS device can
also calculate your altitude (height above sea level).
To use the AUDIOVOX NVX226 system for the first time you need to
charge the battery, and install the map loader into your computer. You can
install the map loader while the battery is charging.
Charging the battery
To charge the battery, plug the power cable into the AUDIOVOX NVX226
system and into a power outlet. Let the battery fully charge (approximately
4 hours).

Acquiring a GPS signal
To use the AUDIOVOX NVX226 system to guide you to a destination, the
system’s GPS antenna must be receiving GPS signals. These signals can
be obstructed by ceilings, trees, and nearby tall buildings. The roof of your
vehicle can also obstruct signals. For best results, position your
AUDIOVOX NVX226 system where a clear view of the sky is available.
Receiving an initial GPS signal may take several minutes. In addition, the
further away the unit is from the last location of use, the longer it will take to
obtain a GPS signal for your current location.
You can quickly view the GPS Info screen by pressing the right side of the
wheel button.
The GPS info screen appears
If you continue to tap the right button, the following screens appear in
succession: map screen →GPS Info → Almanac → Location Information →

The AUDIOVOX NVX226 system presents many ways of looking at the map.
You can view your current position, you can view any of the maneuvers on a
route, and you can pan the map to view other areas. You can also zoom in
and out, and you can find information about specific locations.
Map view
If you have acquired a GPS signal, the map view on the AUDIOVOX
NVX226 system shows you your current location, indicated by a green arrow.
If the arrow is red, no GPS signal is being received, and if the arrow is yellow
the GPS signal is weak.
The bottom of the map presents a scale indicating your current zoom level.
Maneuver detail

navigate to a destination, the top of the map displays the name of the next
street, the direction of your next turn, and the distance to that turn.

Planning your route
You can set a destination with the AUDIOVOX NVX226 system many
different ways. Once you have set a destination, you can add a detour or a
stopover.
The AUDIOVOX NVX226 system also offers an Itinerary feature, where you
can enter up to 50 destinations and use the Itinerary screen to arrange the
addresses in any order you prefer.
Setting a single destination
You can set your destination the following ways:
• Address
• Intersection
• Point of Interest (POI)
• Favorites
• Recent
• City Center
When you have found your destination, you have several options:
• Nav
• Fav
• Map
Calculate the route from your current location (or the location you set
as a starting point) to the destination.

to which you can add destinations. You can also enter a name for a
destination and delete destinations from the list.
Display the location on the panning map without calculating a route.
Using an address as a destination

Using a Point of Interest (POI) as a destination
There are many points of interest that you can select as a destination.
Generally, you choose a category and then choose one of four methods of
selecting the specific point of interest. Sometimes you must first select a
subcategory (such as Museum within the category of Attractions) before
you can choose a selection method.
Because there are so many different types of restaurants, choosing a
subcategory of restaurant is more like selecting a street.
The four methods of selecting a specific point of interest include two for
nearby POIs and two for all POIs in a region.

determine if you need to mark one or more as unavailable. If you mark a
section as unavailable, the AUDIOVOX NVX226 system will calculate a

version of your color scheme soon after sunset, to reduce the glare in the
vehicle. You can instead choose to use either the day or night setting at all
times.
There are three options for displaying POI icons. If you choose default, the
most commonly displayed categories of POI icons will appear on the map at
zoom levels of 1000 ft and closer. If you choose off, no POI icons are
