1. Welcome
TeleNav 3 exploits the integration of GPS position determination technology, the Java programming environment,
and access to Nextel’s packet data network that are all built-in to the Motorola i860 mobile phone. TeleNav 3 offers
basic free services, and one level of enhanced paid subscription services.
The free services (GPS Tools) include:
1.
A compass-like indicator presenting your direction of travel, location, and speed.
2.
The ability to mark your current location as a waypoint that you can label.
3.
A viewer that allows you to see your current location relative to a selected waypoint, and to navigate
relative to that selected waypoint.
None of these basic GPS services require you to have Nextel packet data service. They all operate solely within
the mobile phone itself.
The paid TeleNav GPS services include:
1. GPS navigation than punctually guides you turn-by-turn to any destination address in the Continental
US. If you miss a turn or get off-track, TeleNav will calculate a new route for you. You can enter one or
more destination addresses by calling an automatic voice recognition system, entering them on the
TeleNav website, or keying them directly into the phone. Optionally, the user can input a remote origin
and receive Driving Directions from that origin address to a selected destination address.
2. A Biz finder look up feature that allows you to find businesses or points of interest near your current
location, around a waypoint, around an entered address, or around an airport.
3. Maps of the area around your current location; a marked waypoint; or an address you enter manually,
or have previously entered. You can pan (adjust left/right or up/down) the map, or zoom in or out.
4. A suite of Locator functions that allow you to: a) see your current location as an approximate street
address rather than latitude and longitude; b) send your location to a friend; c) request and receive the
locations of one or more friends and d) send your location to the TeleNav website so someone with
the access control PIN you provide can find you.
TeleNav’s servers support each of these services via the Nextel packet data network.
New in This Release
This release of TeleNav is based upon v2.2.05, the April, 2004 upgrade release for the i730. Most of the features
are the same, but a few have been added, and a few removed. The satellites-in-view, and track recording and
replay features have been removed. The Locator has been enriched to include a friend list and group location
feature. The i860’s larger display allowed expanding the GPS Navigation and driving directions presentations to
optionally include maps overlaid with the desired route and current location. Preferences have been added to
manage this optional feature, and allow selection of routing type. The Preference option to select latitude and
longitude display format has been removed, and the display is always DD°MM’SS”.

2. Safety and Legal Notices
Please read this section carefully before using TeleNav
TeleNav will not accept any responsibility whatsoever for accidents resulting from failure to observe common sense
precautions. Your personal judgment, traffic regulations, and common sense must always take precedence over
any driving direction produced by TeleNav.
WARNING: Keep your eyes on the road.
It is your responsibility as the vehicle operator to keep your eyes on the road and be an alert driver at all times,
ESPECIALLY when the vehicle is moving. The vehicle operator should not be distracted by the application
displays, audible cues, or manually interacting with the controls. When you need to enter data on your phone using
the keypad or study the display, please do so while the vehicle is parked, not while in motion. Should your ability to
drive responsibly be decreased, please turn off the device.
WARNING: Install the equipment safely.
If you are using a phone mounting kit, make sure that it does not obscure your vision. You may wish to charge the
phone while using TeleNav. If so, make sure the charging cable does not interfere with any of the vehicle controls.
WARNING: Drive safely and use common sense.
The vehicle operator’s personal judgment, traffic regulations, and common sense must always take precedence
over the instructions provided by TeleNav.
It is your responsibility as the vehicle operator to drive safely, observe all traffic rules and above all use your own
personal judgment while driving. If you feel that a route suggested by the navigation software instructs you to
perform an unsafe or illegal maneuver, places you in an unsafe situation, or routes you into an area which you
consider unsafe, do not follow the instructions.
3. Getting Started with TeleNav
There are 4 steps you will need to follow before your TeleNav service can become active:
STEP 1: Set-up your TeleNav account at http://www.telenav.com
Before you can begin using your TeleNav system, you will first need to establish your TeleNav account by signing
up directly with Nextel or by going to www.telenav.com and clicking on the “SIGNUP” button. Proceed through the
sign-up instructions as displayed on the website.
STEP 2: Contact Nextel to activate a packet data service plan.
Unless you are just using the GPS basic services described below, the TeleNav application that resides within your
phone communicates with the TeleNav servers using Nextel’s Total Connect packet data service. Contact your
dealer or Nextel’s Customer Service Dept. on a phone other than your Nextel phone at 1-866-265-8305. Ask the
service representative to add the Total Connect plan with a private IP address (not public) of your choice. The
following table is provided for your use in determining whether you will need the 1 megabyte, 5 megabyte, or 10
megabyte Total Connect plan.

TeleNav Function and Demand 1
Expected Usage
120 Maps per month using a new keypad entered
reference address (only 1 zoom or pan)
1 megabyte per month
60 Non-GPS Driving Directions per month using 2 new
keypad entered endpoint addresses for trips less than 60
miles
1 megabyte per month
50-80 GPS Navigation routes per month using a new
keypad entered destination addresses for trips less than
60 miles without street name announcement, and without
intersection maps
1 megabyte per month
50-80 GPS Navigation routes per month using a new
keypad entered destination addresses for trips less than
60 miles WITH street name announcement, but without
intersection maps
5 megabytes per month
20-30 GPS Navigation routes per month using a new
keypad entered destination addresses for trips less than
60 miles without street name announcement, but WITH
intersection maps
1 megabyte per month
140 TeleNav Biz Finder look ups per month using a new
keypad entered search point address (look ups only, no
navigation, no directions, no maps)
1 megabyte per month
NOTE: Using voice address input or the TeleNav website to enter addresses instead of phone keypad entry will
reduce network usage by about 20%, but will incur voice minute usage or Internet charges. Our usage data shows
that, on average, only 70 seconds is required to dictate an address.
STEP 3: Configure the GPS privacy settings in your phone so that the TeleNav Java application can obtain position
fixes from the internal receiver.
STEP 4: Place the phone so it can receive the GPS satellite signals from space. These signals are very faint, and
come from virtually every direction in the sky as the satellites move through their orbits. We recommend placing
the phone in a mount above the dashboard of your vehicle for best results.

4. The i860 Controls
Left Option Key
Right Option Key
4-way Navigation Key
Menu Key
OK Key
End/Home Key
Send Key
NOTE: In this guide, boldfaced upper-case words like SELECT refer to labels that appear in the lower left or
lower right corner of the phone’s display directly above an Option Key. If this guide asks you to press
SELECT, it means you should find the Option Key below the SELECT label on the display, and press it.
TeleNav 3 is operated using the Option Keys. If you are to press the OK key shown above, it will be expressly
called the OK key.
5. Installing TeleNav on Your Phone
NOTE: TeleNav comes preloaded on the Motorola i860. These instructions are provided in case TeleNav is
removed from your phone and you would like to reload it.
NOTE: You need at least 356 kilobytes (KB) of program memory and 32 kilobytes of data space to install and
use TeleNav on your phone. In compressed form the JAR that is downloaded containing TeleNav 3 is 225
kilobytes in size. Follow these steps to install the program to your phone:
To install TeleNav:
a.) Press the Menu key on your phone and using the 4-way Navigation Key, highlight Java Apps (or the Java
Apps icon), and press the OK key. Then highlight Download and press the OK key. This will start the
downloader.
b.) The downloader will then contact Nextel’s server to obtain the top-level catalog for your phone. In this toplevel catalog, highlight Free/Demo, and press SELECT.
c.) After the Free/Demo catalog has loaded, highlight TeleNav 3 in the list of applications, and press
SELECT. Next, the TeleNav application details are presented. After reading the product description,
press GET IT.
d.) Wait while TeleNav downloads to your phone. This may take 1 to 2 minutes.
e.) Once TeleNav is downloaded, you will see a screen with further instructions. Please read the
instructions carefully. When you’re done, press EXIT.
f.) Highlight TeleNav 3 and press the OK key to start software installation. As the TeleNav software installs,
a check mark appears to the left of each row on the display. When installation is complete, press DONE
and you will be taken back to the main MENU.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 9 OF 34
If during the installation process the phone reports that it does not have enough space to install TeleNav, you
may have to remove one of the other Java programs to create space for TeleNav. You can remove any
program except Java System and Download. If you accidentally remove either of these, you must take your
phone to a Nextel service center to have the software reinstalled!
To remove a program, highlight the program you want to delete, press the Menu key, highlight Deinstall and
press SELECT to remove the program. Follow the steps on the screen until the program has been removed
then perform the above steps.
6. Access Permissions
GPS Privacy
Your phone restricts access to its GPS location data. The phone’s GPS receiver can be in one of three modes: 1)
Restricted, 2) Unrestricted or 3) By Permission. To allow TeleNav to access the GPS data may require changing
the Privacy Settings.
First, press the Menu key, highlight GPS (or the satellite icon) and press the OK key. (If you do not find it in the first
page of Menu items, press MORE.) From the GPS menu, select Privacy, and press the OK key. In the Privacy
menu, scroll down until Unrestricted or By Permission is highlighted, and press the OK key. Then, press BACK
twice to return to the main screen. Unrestricted means that any application can access GPS data, and By
Permission means that only those applications you allow to do so can access GPS data. We recommend setting
the control to By Permission.
Second, if you set the Privacy control to By Permission, you have to grant the TeleNav application access to the
GPS data. This activity only occurs the first time you use TeleNav after changing the privacy setting to By
Permission.
1. To do this press the Menu key and then select Java Apps, and press the OK key.
2. Once in the Java Apps menu highlight TeleNav 3 and press the OK key.
3. Because the phone has not tested the Privacy Settings for TeleNav before, it will challenge this action, and
ask if you want to grant permission. You should press GRANT. Then, it will ask you to chose from three
options, highlight ALWAYS, and press the OK key.
4. TeleNav will then auto-resume so that the handset system can present its request for Auto Invocation
permissions.
Future invocations of the TeleNav application only require you to press the Menu key, select Java Apps, highlight
TeleNav, and press the OK key. You may wish to use the Personalize feature of your phone to promote TeleNav
to one of the option keys or one of the 4-way key actions.
Auto Invocation Permissions
As explained above, TeleNav resumes after you deal with the GPS privacy issues, and will then ask you about
Auto Invocation permission. This feature allows TeleNav’s servers to awaken TeleNav even though it is turned off
so that it can report your location to a requestor to whom you have granted location access. If you want this
capability to work, you should GRANT this permission ALWAYS.

7. Using TeleNav
Launching the Application
To launch TeleNav on your phone, press the Menu key, highlight Java Apps (or the Java Apps icon) and press the
OK key. In the Java Apps menu, highlight TeleNav (or the TeleNav icon), and press the OK key. From this point
on in this guide, key presses refer to the Option Keys below the screen labels bearing the key functional names.
After starting TeleNav, the banner screen will appear for a few seconds. If this is the first time you use TeleNav, the
next screens will explain what it is, and how to get signed up for TeleNav service.
Logging In
If you choose to use any of the paid services, you will be asked if you have a TeleNav account and Nextel Total
Connect packet data service. If you have already created a TeleNav account and ordered Total Connect, press
YES, but if not, click NO; and
1. Go to www.telenav.com using a PC-based Web browser to create an account, or
2. Call 1-88-TeleNav-4 for customer service.
Next you must agree to the TeleNav software license and terms of use by pressing YES.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 11 OF 34
The next screen will collect your TeleNav account number and the PIN you provided when
registering for TeleNav services at www.telenav.com. Your account number MUST be the
same as your Nextel phone number with area code so that when you call the Voice
Address Input System you will not need to type in the account number. After you have
entered the account number, use the 4-way Navigation Key to move the cursor down to the
PIN entry field. When you have finished entering your PIN, press the OK soft key to
proceed.
NOTE: If after you press OK, the TeleNav application indicates that it cannot reach the TeleNav servers, the most
likely reason is that your Nextel Total Connect packet data service plan is not yet active. If the application reaches
the TeleNav servers, the server will cause your phone to remember the account information so that you will not
need to enter it again.
NOTE: If your TeleNav account is expired, you will be notified at this point, and will be directed to go to
www.telenav.com to extend your service agreement. You will not be able to progress beyond this point until your
account is returned to current status. You may also see an important message from TeleNav regarding upgrades,
scheduled downtime, pending account expiration, etc.
Initial Content Loading
During your first time use of TeleNav subscription services, it will be necessary for
the handset to obtain the audible and graphical content needed to build the
displays and produce the audible messages you will hear. The following Alert
screen will advise you this is about to take place.
Press Done to start the content download and installation process.
From time to time, TeleNav may update this content, and will advise you
accordingly.
TeleNav Main Menu
After the application launches, you will be taken to the TeleNav main menu.
This menu packages the free basic services under GPS Tools. Except for
Preferences, the rest of the services require a TeleNav subscription, and Nextel
Total Connect packet data service. Highlight your choice, and press OK.2
NOTE: You can only EXIT TeleNav from this menu screen. If you are
elsewhere in the TeleNav application, press BACK until you see this screen, or
press MENU, and select TeleNav Home to return to this screen. To avoid
inadvertently leaving TeleNav, you must confirm your desire to exit by pressing
YES on the exit confirmation screen.

The drawings of the phone screens in this document are not proportional to the actual screens on the i860. Instead, they were captured from
an i730 emulator with different screen proportions ore were drawn taller or shorter to allow the presented content to be shown completely.

PAGE 12 OF 34
GPS Tools
None of the GPS Tools require Nextel packet data service or a TeleNav
subscription. If you select GPS Tools from the main menu, you will be taken to
the GPS Tools submenu. You can make a choice by highlighting the item, and
pressing OK. Otherwise, press BACK to return to the main menu.
Compass
If you choose Compass, you will see a display similar to a nautical compass, but
more correctly it actually displays course over ground, the direction you are traveling
if you are moving. The screen also provides current latitude, longitude, and speed.
Using the main menu Preferences, you can select the format of the speed as miles
per hour or kilometers per hour. Press BACK to return to the GPS basic submenu.
If no GPS data is available, “No GPS” appears instead of latitude and longitude.
Otherwise, a GPS satellite count indicator occupies the area below the speed value.
Add three (3) to the number of bars shown to determine the number of satellites
being tracked by the GPS receiver. When the indicator shows that 7 satellites are
being tracked (which is good), the receiver may actually be tracking even more
(which is even better).
Marking a Waypoint. The left MARK Option Key allows you to mark a waypoint (as described below) directly from
the Compass view.
Mark waypoint
This menu option (also available from Compass view) allows you to mark and label
your current location for future reference. If you choose Mark waypoint, there will
be brief activity to determine the GPS position, and then you will need to enter a
label of at least 3 characters length, or you can accept the default label based on the
current date.
View waypoint
Selecting View waypoint allows you to see the spatial relationship of a selected waypoint relative to your current
location. If you have not marked any waypoints, you will simply get a message “No waypoints” and you should
press OK to return to the submenu. Otherwise, you will see a list of waypoint labels to pick from. After you pick
one, you will see the waypoint’s latitude and longitude. The next display teaches you the key functions that allow
you to manipulate the following screen that shows you the relationship of your current position to the waypoint. The
Smiley Face is your location, and the other end of the vector is the waypoint icon. The view is North oriented, and
the approximate distance to the waypoint is shown, along with your current speed and the GPS signal quality
indicator.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 13 OF 34
In the last display above, the waypoint is southwest of your current location. To see
its position relative to your current direction of travel (provided you are moving at
least 5 MPH), press NAV to produce the view to the right.
This example view shows that you are traveling toward the northeast, and the
selected waypoint (indicated by the green circle) is almost directly behind you in the
southwest direction. The display also shows your speed, and the distance to the
waypoint. The Navigate view updates as you move. Press View to return to the
prior screen. Press BACK to return to the submenu.
Maps
If you are a subscriber, you will get the map location menu shown to the right.
If you choose Here (your current location), there will be brief activity while TeleNav
employs GPS to determine your location, followed by a transaction with the TeleNav
server to retrieve the data needed to draw the map.
If you choose Enter address, you will be presented with a screen labeled Map
location that allows you to enter a new address, refresh the list, or pick a recently
used address from the list. Address entry is described in a later section of this
guide. After you have entered an address and the TeleNav server validates it, the
TeleNav server prepares the data needed for your phone to draw the map.
Map location
Here
Enter address
Waypoints
OK
BACK
If you choose Waypoints, you will be provided with a list of waypoints you have previously marked, if there are any.
You select the one you want, and the coordinates are sent to the TeleNav server to that it can prepare the data
needed for your phone to draw the map.
Map View
Before the map is drawn, a helper screen is shown that describes how to move (pan) the map, and how to zoom in
and out. The current zoom level is shown as a fraction in the upper right corner of the map (shown as 4/9 in the
figure below). Here are the key functions –
•
4-way navigation key – moves the map up and down, and left and right (panning)
•
4 key – zooms in (this key is also the letter “I’, as in “In”)
•
6 key – zooms out (this key is also the letter “O’, as in “Out”)
•
The 2, 5, and 8 keys rapidly change the zoom level (the range is 1 through 9). To rapidly go between
levels, press 2, 5, or 8, and then one key press of 4 or 6 will take you exactly to the level you desire. For
example, to go to level 3 from level 7, press 2 and then 6 (Out).
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 14 OF 34
The map is always oriented with North towards the top. Every time you move (pan)
or zoom, there will be brief server activity to fetch the updated map depicted by
animation in the upper right corner of the map replacing the zoom level indicator.
Give TeleNav 15 seconds to complete your request for a change.
You can press MARK to create a new waypoint based on the current position of the
map cursor. You can change the zoom level, and move the map around using the
4-way key prior to pushing the MARK Option Key.
Locator
The Locator allows you to share your location, and ask your friends for their locations. You can:
a) Request the location of another TeleNav subscriber (who may or may not agree to send it to you).
b) Ask the TeleNav server to convert the latitude and longitude you see on the Compass view to a more
conventional approximate street address.
c) Send your location to someone else via e-mail or the short messaging service (SMS). This transmission
may also be within the TeleNav service allowing the recipient to drive to the sent address.
d) Post your location to the TeleNav servers so that someone else can go to the TeleNav website to see
where you are located.
e) Edit the list of friends you wish to locate.
f)
Block Requests for your location.
g) Refresh Requests to pull in any location requests that occurred while TeleNav was not running.
h) Review the Requests History of TeleNav’s response to location requests from others.
i)
See some Helpful information about these services.
Find Friend(s)
You can find one or more “friends” who are also TeleNav subscribers, and have been listed in your local Friends
list. After selecting Find Friend, a coaching screen is presented. To select friends, highlight their names, and
press the OK key. Each time you press the OK key, the selection checkmark to the left of the name will change
state. Use the up/down Navigation key to scroll through the friends list. When done selecting a single or group of
friends, press FIND. After you press FIND, a timer screen appears allowing for up to 120 seconds for the request
to be honored, denied, or ignored. If your friends reply promptly, the transaction typically takes less than a minute.
If they are not responding, the transaction may take 2 minutes.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 15 OF 34
When a TeleNav subscriber attempts to determine the location of another subscriber using the Find Friend feature,
the recipient behavior depends upon whether or not the recipient has TeleNav, and if he has TeleNav which
version he has. This issue is resolved by the TeleNav servers’ knowledge of the installed product type. There is
brief transaction activity before one of the following will appear, unless the recipient has TeleNav 3.0 in which case
there is no qualifying message.3
TeleNav 2.2
TeleNav 2.1 and 2.0
Expired TeleNav
No TeleNav
A TeleNav 2.2 recipient may either DENY or GRANT the request. If the request is granted, the requestor will
receive a reply. Similarly, a TeleNav 3.0 user may selectively Grant Always, Grant Once, or Deny a location
request while the application is running. This selection is recorded within an access control list that is part of the
Friends List described below. In addition, TeleNav can also be set to block all location requests as discussed
below.
Since TeleNav 3.0 registers itself with the handset’s push registry, location requests sent via UDP/IP can awaken it
to process the request. If the local access control settings for the requesting party were previously set to Grant
Always, TeleNav 3 awakens, gets a location fix, sends it to the requestor, and then terminates. If the access
control status is unknown or Grant Once, the awakened TeleNav 3 will wait for the user to select an access control
list option for 90 seconds, and then terminate itself. If the user allows the location request, a GPS fix will be taken
and sent to the requestor. If the user interacts with TeleNav in any fashion, the access control list selection is sent
to the TeleNav servers. If the requestor was previously denied or all requestors are blocked, the TeleNav server
does not bother to interrogate the handset.
The access control list for a TeleNav 3 account can be managed by logging into the TeleNav.net website.
When the TeleNav server has accumulated the responses, or lack thereof, from all requested TeleNav accounts, it
sends a status report back to the requestor This status report includes: a) the name of the requested party, b) the
type of response (GPS, cell site, none), and c) the time of the response. The user can then highlight a response to
get more details such as: a) the latitude and longitude, b) the approximate street address, and c) the relative
temporal age of the location fix of the located party.
3
The content of these server-generated messages may change at TeleNav’s discretion.

most recently used recipient addresses are retained for easy reference. The format
of the location message is described below under Message Format.
To an E-mail - If you choose to send to an e-mail address, you can pick a domain name from one of the major
domains like AOL or MSN, but otherwise, you should select “Enter e-mail in full”. After you make a domain choice,
you enter only that part of the e-mail that precedes the “@” symbol when asked to provide the e-mail account
name. If the recipient’s domain name is not in the list, you will need to enter the complete e-mail address. To
change between alpha, numeric, and symbol input modes, press the Menu key, make a mode selection, and then
key in the characters. You may have to change modes several times to handle numbers, letters, special
characters, and punctuation symbols.
To a Phone – If you choose to use SMS to send your location, first you must select the recipient’s wireless carrier
from a list. Then you provide the phone number. Note that the first carrier listed is TeleNav! If you send your
location to a TeleNav subscriber, the receiving subscriber can use the address you send by saving it as a labeled
waypoint.
To a Friend – If you choose to send your location to a friend who is also a TeleNav subscriber, you simply select
the name of the friend from the local friends list, and press OK.
After you select a routing method for the location report, TeleNav attempts to determine your GPS location for
about 40 seconds. If this fails due to weak GPS signal strength, TeleNav will attempt to use cell site reference
information to determine your approximate location.
Transmission Confirmation – After the address has been input and you press OK, a message stating, “TeleNav
sent your GPS (cell cite) location to <address>. Thanks!”, will appear. Here <address> is either an e-mail or an
SMS address; or a friend’s name. Note that this confirmation does not imply that the recipient has received the
message.
Message Format – The messages sent via SMS or e-mail have the same content:
From: TeleNav_Admin
Subj: Alert
[FR:] <name> @ <m_address>
[MSG:] [GPS] <p_address>

lat: <latitude> lon: <longitude>
<time> <date>
Here, <name> is the first name of the TeleNav account holder (if available), and <m_address> is his phone
number. The <p_address> is the approximate address of the sender determined by looking up the street address
closest to the latitude and longitude produced by the [GPS receiver] or using [Cell site] information. The latitude
and longitude are the values produced by the [GPS receiver] or using [Cell site] information.
Send GPS->Website
This feature allows you to send your current GPS location to the TeleNav.net
website so that another person can use the website to determine where you are.
After you select this feature, you key in a one-time use, 4 digit access control PIN.
After you enter the PIN and press OK, you will see the server confirmation that
includes the street address you’re near.
You tell your assisting party to go to www.telenav.com/sos on the Internet, and enter
your Nextel mobile phone number and the PIN you have just created. They will see
the information presented on the right.
Note: Your prior location is overwritten each time you use this function.
Your current
location is:
<street address>

Block Requests
Block Requests applies to ALL requests for your location. After selecting this option,
you decide to answer Yes or No.
Refresh Requests
When another TeleNav user requests your location, you will receive a location request message via SMS. This
way, even though TeleNav is not running, you will be aware that someone else would like to know where you are.
You then invoke the TeleNav application on your phone, go to Locator, select Refresh, and press OK. TeleNav
will then query the TeleNav servers to get the details of the location requests

Edit Friend List
Before you can can Find Friend, you must add the friend’s name and phone number to the local friend list. You
can type in a friend’s name and phone number or get the information from your handset’s Contacts list of mobile
phone numbers.4
The Update Friend feature allows the user to employ the editor for correcting the spelling of the friend’s name, or
updating his phone number. Delete Friend presents the local list of friends so they can be selectively deleted.
Locator Help
Invoking the Help screen will provide a brief description of the services described above. To see the whole
description, use the 4-way Navigation Key up and down keys.
GPS Navigation
The GPS Navigation feature allows to get real-time navigation guidance from your
current GPS location (origin) to a destination address you select from the list of
existing destination addresses on your handset, or a newly input address. You can
also use this feature to get Driving Directions from a different origin to a selected
destination.
You pick New Address to enter a new destination (or origin if you are using the
Driving Directions feature). The options for address entry are a) voice call, b)
entering a city/state and the remainder of the address from the keypad, c) entering a
Zip code and the remainder of the address from the keypad, d) selecting an airport
by its 3-letter code or location, e) or using the Biz Finder to look up an address. This
is described more completely in a later section of this guide.
If you have defined your home or work address, they will be shown prefixed with “H:” and “W:” respectively. Log
into the TeleNav.net website to set or change these addresses, or use the Voice Address Input system as
discussed later in this guide. Below your home and work addresses is a list of the (up to) 10 most recently entered
or used addresses.
Use Refresh List to get addresses entered telephonically or via the TeleNav.net website. Only the website can be
used to remove addresses from this list. Newer addresses replace older addresses during normal use.
You can also use a previously marked Waypoint as a destination address.
4
TeleNav only looks for mobile numbers in the Contacts list. If there are none, an advisory screen is presented.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 19 OF 34
After you input or select your destination address, you will see an address
confirmation screen showing the destination address and routing type that allows
you to BACK up if you picked the wrong address.
Driving Directions from a Different Origin
After you select or enter a destination address, TeleNav attempts to determine your location using the GPS
receiver. During the brief period of GPS acquisition, you can press the lower left NONGPS Option Key to enter the
Driving Directions submode. After you press NONGPS, you enter the Origin address for the Driving Directions
using the same options as were available to you while entering or picking the destination address.
GPS Origin Refinement
If are using GPS Navigation and you are in a parking lot or similar area where your
location does not exactly map to a specific street, you may see a screen that says:
If you are not on the suggested street, press CHNGE and pick the street you are on from
the displayed list. Otherwise, press OK, or just wait for the timer to count down.
I found you on Cooper Drive
< 5 secs >
OK
CHNGE
NOTE: If you are not sure of the street you’re on, simply select the first street in the list, and start driving. TeleNav
will revise its estimate of your location, and provide you with a new route if needed.
GPS Guidance
Within a few seconds, TeleNav will contact the TeleNav server, obtain an optimal route to your destination, and
display the first instruction telling you how to start your trip from your current location.
NOTE: Unless you are moving, TeleNav will not be aware of your direction of travel. If this is the case, the first few
guidance instructions may be incorrect. However, once you start moving, TeleNav will learn your direction of travel
and provide a corrected set of guidance instructions.
Next you will see the first of the guidance displays that will direct you to your destination. These displays are
described below under Guidance Displays.
Audible Messages
TeleNav delivers one or two audible guidance messages as you approach a turn or junction. The preparatory
message will be heard no less than 30 seconds before you reach the turn, and the action message will be heard no
less than 10 seconds before you reach the turn. The preparatory message may not be heard if the distance to go
only allows time for the action message. The lead-time for these messages is increased proportionally to your
driving speed to allow more time for changing lanes on freeways than on surface streets. Visit the TeleNav website
to turn audible street names on or off.
What’s Next
If you wish to hear the action message for the current route segment without waiting, simply press the Green Send
Key. We call this the “what’s next” feature.

Miss a turn?
Whenever you miss a turn, turn the wrong way, turn too early or too late, or otherwise get off the planned route to
your destination, TeleNav will automatically create a new route to your desired destination, audibly announce, “New
Route”, and give you a new set of instructions. If you realize you have gotten off the route, just keeping going.
TeleNav will detect your “departure” and calculate a new route to get you back on track.
Please note that it takes about 15 seconds for TeleNav to update your route. If during this process you also make
adjustments, TeleNav will probably have to contact its servers for another new route. Rerouting uses substantial
network bandwidth, so it is advisable for you to try to stay on the route. Since TeleNav GPS Navigation requires
the Nextel network, if you are off route and outside of Nextel coverage, you must return to Nextel coverage for GPS
Navigation to work again. In the mean time, press BACK to suspend its operation.
Biz Finder
If you select Biz finder, the first thing you must do is to help TeleNav determine where you want to look for the
business or point of interest. Once you have picked a point or an area, you can search topically by Category
name, or by entering the first few letters of the Business Name.
Search Point
You can search around where you are (Here), around an address you recently used
or entered (a recent stop), within a named city or ZIP code, around an airport, or
around a waypoint you previously marked. You can also enter a new address, and
search around it.
Selecting Here causes the GPS receiver to determine your current location as the
search point.
If you select A recent stop, you will get a list of recently used addresses, but may
need to use Refresh list to update the list with addresses recently entered using the
Voice Address Input System or the TeleNav web site. Once the list is updated, simply
highlight the address you want, and press OK.
If you select to search Within a city by name, you can either use one of the cities
you have used previously, or enter a new one. The state and city name entry
process is described below under Keypad Address Entry, but the entry process
ends before collecting the street name and number.

If you select to search an area Within a ZIP code, you just enter the 5 digits of the
code, and press OK.
Hint – Entering a ZIP code is quicker than entering a new state and city name.
If you select to search around a New Address, you enter either the ZIP code, or the
state abbreviation and city name; and then the street address (street name and
number, or street name and crossing street name). See Keypad Address Entry
below for the details.
If you select to search around an Airport, you enter the 3-letter airport code, the first
three letters of the city or market name where the airport is located, or the first three
letters of the airport’s given name. For example, to find John F. Kennedy International
Airport, you can enter “JFK”, the airport code; “NEW”, the first three letters of New
York City, the market it serves; or “KEN”, the prefix of its given name. After you have
entered your search key, press OK. If you enter the prefix of a city name, you may
find multiple matches. For example, entering “NEW” will produce a list of airports in
New York City, Newark, New Orleans, etc. Similarly, if you enter “DUL” in the name
field, you will be able to locate Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, DC.

After you have specified the search point or area, you are offered the choice to search the Categories that TeleNav
uses to group businesses, or using the first few letters of the Business name.
Category Search
If you select categories, TeleNav will contact its servers to get the current category list.
The category list spans several displayed pages. To move to the next page, find the
MORE entry, and press OK.
Some categories, particularly Restaurants, will have many subcategories that are
displayed similarly, and will require you to select MORE and press OK to continue
through the subcategory list. The list of categories and subcategories may change as
TeleNav updates the directory. After you have drilled down through the category tree,
you will be presented a list of matching business names.

After you highlight and pick a specific business, you will see a screen that shows: a)
the name of the business, b) the street address, and c) the phone number.
The OPTIONs are: 1) drive to the address, 2) save the business address for later, 3)
obtain a map around the business location, or 4) call it using your Nextel phone
(requires a calling plan). If you Save for later, the address is sent to the TeleNav
servers so that it will appear in the recent addresses list, but first you will need to use
the Refresh list feature.
NOTE: If you enter Biz Finder from another function such as GPS Navigation, or
Maps, the OPTION key shown above is replaced with OK allowing you to employ
the business address for the function you are using. So, if you need to use Biz
Finder to make a call, enter it directly from the TeleNav menu.
The Call it feature is only present in the options list if the prior display shows a phone
number. If you choose Call it, the phone number will appear on your phone’s calling
screen, and you will have to press the Green Send key to place the call. When the
call is completed, press Menu, select Java Apps to return to TeleNav, and press
RESUME.

Preferences
If you select Preferences, you can change; 1) the Route Type to fastest or shortest, or using or avoiding
highways; 2) adjust the speaker audio volume; 3) turn the Backlight on or off; 4) turn the maps at intersections on
or off; 5) pick the number dialed when using Voice Call to set an address; 6) set the displayed distance units to
either feet and miles or kilometers and meters; and 7) find out how to reach TeleNav customer support.

PAGE 23 OF 34
If you select Volume control you will be instructed to press the volume up or down key
on the side of the phone. When you do this, the deviation sound will play allowing you
to hear the current level.
Selecting Backlight allows you to turn the backlight ON, or to turn it OFF. Selecting
Support (listed last, and not shown above) provides you with TeleNav’s web site URL
and customer service phone number. Distance Units changes apply across the entire
TeleNav application.
There are two Address Input phone numbers to choose from under Voice Number (#). In some cases, calls
placed to the 877 number do not carry your Caller ID. When this happens you will be asked to enter your Nextel
phone number followed by pressing the “#” key, and then enter your TeleNav PIN followed by pressing the “#” key
so that TeleNav can assign the address you dictate to your account. If the automated attendant asks for account
number in the geographical area where you most frequently use TeleNav, you should try the 408 number. Ease of
using the Voice Address Input system is probably a more important consideration than the minor change in your
Nextel billing.
You can set preferences for other TeleNav features using the TeleNav website as described below.
Address Entry
Addresses can be entered several different ways:
1. Call the Voice Address Input System and dictate the address. This can be done before launching the
TeleNav Java application, or from within the TeleNav application.
2. Use the TeleNav website.
3. Type in the address in the address fields in the Java application on your phone using the keypad
4. Transfer an address from the Biz finder Save for later feature as explained above, or
5. Use a marked Waypoint as an address (provided that it is close enough to street or road to have a valid
address.)
After you use method 1 or 2, be sure to use the Refresh list feature to update the list of addresses appearing on
TeleNav on your phone.
Voice Address Input
Before starting TeleNav, call the Voice Address Input System at 408-523-1429 or 877-886-9762, and dictate your
address as prompted. Below is a sample of what you will hear and say:
TeleNav prompt> Welcome to TeleNav! Powered by TeleNav. Say the city and state you want like San Francisco,
California.
Your response> Arlington, Texas
TeleNav prompt> I heard Arlington, Texas. To change this say GO BACK. Say the street you want like WILSON
AVENUE, or say Highway and the route number like Highway 405.
Your response> Oak Street
TeleNav prompt> I heard Oak Street. To change this say GO BACK. Say the street number or say INTERSECTION
to name a cross street.
© TELENAV 2003-5
PAGE 24 OF 34
Your response> 1620
TeleNav prompt> I heard 1620. To change this say GO BACK.
<pause>
TeleNav prompt> Address entered. Please launch TeleNav on your phone
<call is terminated>
The Voice Address Input System may ask you for account number and PIN if caller ID is not working. Simply
dictate the numbers as prompted, or key in your Nextel phone number followed by pressing “#”, and your TeleNav
PIN followed by pressing “#. If this happens, consider using Preferences, Voice Number to change to the other
dialed number.
The recognition system may reply back with an incorrectly recognized input. When this happens, simply say, “Go
Back”, and repeat the data entry. The voice system may advise you that a street number is out of range and
provide the proper range of numbers for you to use. Provide a number that is within the range or nearest the end of
the range that you are sure is valid. If you say Intersection and then provide a crossing street name, the voice
system may advise you that the streets you provided do not actually cross and allow you to change either street
name, or both street names. Select the name you want to change by saying it, and then provide the correct name.
You can also say my Home or my Work to program these addresses for use on the handset. If you want to
change one of these addresses, say my Home or my Work, wait for the current address to be repeated back to
you, and then say Update. You can also say Airport, and then give the name of the airport, its location city or its
market city name.
After the Voice Address Input System has completed its dialog with you, it will advise you to launch the TeleNav
application, and then it will hang up. If TeleNav is running, you should press MENU, RUN Java Apps, press
RESUME, and choose the Refresh list option when you see the list of addresses so that recently dictated
addresses will appear in the list.
Web address entry
Go to the TeleNav website, and log in using your account number and PIN. Then select I have TeleNav and
Preplan my trip. Type in the address you want to go to and click on the submit link. The address will be validated
and appear in the list of addresses further down the web page that will appear in your phone’s TeleNav address list
the next time you use TeleNav and select Refresh list.
Address entry from the phone
To enter a new address you need to first select New address. Next you can select
one of the recently entered cities, or an airport; and you can also enter the new
address using a City/State combination, or a ZIP code followed by entering the
numbered street address or the crossing street names.
Voice Call
If you select Voice call, your phone will go into voice call mode with the Voice Address Input System number
displayed on the screen. Press the green button to dial the number, and dictate your address as described above.

PAGE 25 OF 34
When you are done with the call, press BACK, the Menu key, highlight Java Apps, press OK, highlight
Suspended Apps, press the OK key, highlight TeleNav 3, and press the OK key again. At this point, TeleNav will
resume, and automatically Refresh list so that the called in address appears on your phone. Highlight the newly
entered address, and press OK.
New City/State
If you select New city/state, you will be taken to the State entry page. Here you first
enter the US Postal Service state abbreviation e.g., “CA” for California. First, you will
have to press Menu, highlight Alpha mode, and press Select because it is hard to
enter USPS prefixes in Word mode.
After you enter the state USPS code, you will be asked to enter the city name. You
may want to change from Word to Alpha mode first if the name you are trying to enter
is not likely to be part of a commonly used word5.
Only the first three (or more) characters are needed to enter the city name. For
example if you were trying to enter “Sunnyvale” as the destination city, you would
enter sun using Alpha mode. Using Word mode will result in run if you press 786.
On the other hand, if you wanted “Santa Clara”, Word mode does produce santa if
you press 72682.

Hint: Use the “*←” key at the lower left corner of the keypad to backspace and remove incorrectly entered letters.
Also note that some keys are marked with alternative characters that they will produce after several key presses.
Pressing the 1 key in alpha or Word mode produces a spectrum of punctuation, most of which is not needed for
address input.
After you enter a city prefix, you will be presented a list of city names to choose from, unless there is only one
unique match. If there are too many matching names, you may be asked to enter more letters. Highlight the city
name you are looking for using the up/down 4-way Navigation Key, and press the OK key. After you pick a name
from the list, or if the name is uniquely matched, you are taken to Street Name Input, see below.
Zip Code
To enter a ZIP code, select New ZIP, enter a valid ZIP code, and press OK. Once
you’ve entered a valid zip code, the TeleNav servers will find the matching city and
state name for the Zip code, and then you will be asked to enter the street name.

As in the city name case above, after you enter part of the street name, you will see: a) the street name list, b) an
advisory that too many matches were found and you should enter more letters, or c) an advisory that no matching
name was found.
Next you will be asked to enter either the address number or intersecting street name. Use the 4-way Navigation
Key to select between address number and intersecting street name input rows.
To enter an intersecting street, navigate down; enter the first few characters of the intersecting street name. For
streets that are numbers, use the number abbreviation input method described above. To enter a street number,
simply key in the number. When you have input the name or number, press OK.
If you enter a cross street name prefix, you may be presented with a list of street names to choose from. Highlight
the one you want, and press OK.
If you are entering a highway number, use the bottom field, and enter only the numeric part without any alphabetic
prefixes. For example, to enter US-99, simply type in 99.
Address input checking
Once you have entered the street address or selected the crossing street name,
TeleNav will check to see if the address you entered can be found. This checking
makes sure that: a.) the address (door) number you entered is within the range of
assigned numbers for the named street and b.) when crossing street names are
provided, the streets do actually cross. If either condition is false, or the address is too
new to be found in the mapping database, the server will send a message to your
phone requesting you to correct the provided information. For example:

Using a Waypoint as an address
If you choose to use a Waypoint as an address, you will be presented with a list of waypoints you have previously
marked and labeled as shown above under View Waypoints. Highlight the one you want, and press OK. At this
point, your phone will contact the TeleNav servers to convert the latitude and longitude of the waypoint to an
approximate street address.
Guidance Instructions
The guidance instruction screens you will see have the following content, but will have different proportions than
those shown below. GPS navigation and Non-GPS directions screens have slightly different content explained
below. When TeleNav is communicating with the TeleNav servers, a network activity indicator replaces the GPS

If you will be traveling on the same roadway for a mile or more, the Upcoming and Current Street names will be the
name of the street you are on, and the turn type icon will be a vertical arrow. As you approach the turn, the
Upcoming Street name will change, and the icon will portray the actual type of turn you should make. As you
move, the distance to turn and the remaining distance will decrease. Visit the TeleNav website to alter this
behavior as described below under Personalization.
Eventually, you will see the destination arrival screen. This screen will show you how far it is to your destination
and whether it is on the left or right side of the street or road.
For TeleNav to work, the GPS receiver must be tracking four or more satellites. When 3 or less are being tracked,
the satellite indicator will be blank. When four satellites are being tracked, one bar will appear. As more satellites
are tracked, more bars appear. If the indicator is blank, you should more to an area with a clearer view of the sky.
When you arrive at your destination, press MENU. The available options will allow you to go back to the TeleNav
menu. You can also press MENU and select a whole route map.

Intersection Maps
If you use Preferences to Enable Maps in Nav, at the origin, each intersection, and
near the destination, TeleNav will present a map of the locale inserted below the
upcoming turn type icon shown in the diagram above. The map is oriented along one
of the cardinal directions (NSWE) so that your direction of travel approaching the turn
is toward the top of the display. The route you should follow is overlaid in green on the
map, and your position is plotted as an automobile icon. Your initial position may be
below the map, but as you approach the intersection, the automobile icon will appear.
Non-GPS mode or Driving Directions
Using a GPS-based origin for real-time GPS navigaiton, once all of the routing information is delivered to your
phone, you can press the PREVU key to switch to Non-GPS Driving Directions to PREVU the remainder of the
route. This PREVU key is not present if you enter the origin using a newly input or stored address.
Rocking the 4-way Navigation key to the right goes to the next page of directions, and rocking it to the left goes to
the previous page of directions. In this mode, the Direction of Travel indicator is replaced by an indicator reading,
“m/n”, showing that you are viewing page m of a total of n pages. When n and m are the same, you have scrolled
to the end of the route.
The GPS indicator is not relevant or shown when operating in this mode.
Activity Messages
Whenever the TeleNav application on your phone needs server assistance, it uses Nextel packet data service.
While it is using packet data service, other services such as DirectConnect (walkie-talkie), SMS 2-way messaging,
and conventional cellular will not be available. Typically this interruption of other services will last no more than 20
seconds. When TeleNav is using packet data service to contact the TeleNav servers, it will present a message
like: a) Reading GPS…, b) Waiting …, c) Sending …, d) Receiving…, e) Logging in…, f) Personalizing …, g)
Loading icons…, h) Loading audio, and i) Storing audio. You will also notice a small network activity indicator in the
upper right corner of the map display after you press a key to pan or zoom the map.

When your phone receives an incoming call ring, it will ring, and display a screen that allows you to take or ignore
the call. If you take the call, TeleNav will be operating but “suspended”. After the call, press the RED End/Home
Key to end the call, and then press the MENU key. Highlight Java Apps, and press the OK key. The presented
menu will include a “suspended apps” folder. Highlight this folder, and press the OK key. Then, highlight TeleNav
3, and press the OK key again to “awaken” TeleNav. If TeleNav has been suspended for a while from GPS
Navigation, it may ask you to confirm that you are continuing to the same destination.
You can also press the RED End/Home Key while TeleNav is running to force it to suspend. Use the steps
described immediately above to awaken TeleNav.
8. Error Conditions
Unable to reach server
If you see an activity screen for 45 seconds followed by a message that says, “Unable to reach server”, and it is
your first attempt at using TeleNav, you should contact Nextel customer care to resolve this issue. Most likely, your
Total Connect packet data service is not provisioned correctly.

If you drive into an area where there is intermittent or no ability to connect to the Nextel wireless network, or there is
a problem within the wire line network between Nextel wireless gateways and the TeleNav servers, and this
problem has persisted for 30 seconds or more, you will get a message stating, “Unable to reach server”. The
TeleNav application on your phone will attempt to reconnect within 7 seconds.
TeleNav not available
If you get an advisory message that TeleNav is not available, you should EXIT the TeleNav application, and then
restart it. If the problem recurs, it may be due to a temporary TeleNav server outage.
GPS Access Restricted
If you get a message stating that TeleNav cannot access the GPS receiver data, you will need to change the
privacy setting. First, EXIT TeleNav, and then follow the directions provided above in the GPS Privacy section.
GPS Signal Weak
If GPS signal reception is weak due to shadowing within the vehicle or due to buildings, trees, overpasses, etc.,
validation will fail, producing a screen that will advise you that the GPS signal is weak and you should move to an
open area. It is suggested that you move to an area with a clear view of the sky, and then click “RETRY”. If you’re
still having problems you can still driving directions by pressing the NONGPS key while the GPS receiver is trying to
determine your current location as the origin point.
Low battery
The GPS will not start if the phone’s battery is very low. This is because the GPS receiver needs the phone battery
to be at least half charged. The phone should be charging using the GPS otherwise the phone battery depletes
very quickly. If you get a low battery warning, connect a charging cable as soon as possible.
9. Exiting TeleNav
If at anytime you wish to exit TeleNav, press the BACK key until you reach the main TeleNav menu, and then
press EXIT. You will be asked to confirm that you truly do want to exit TeleNav.
10. The TeleNav Web Site
Using the features describe below requires you to log into the website using your Nextel phone number (TeleNav

Account Management
Within Account Management, you will find links that allow you to change your e-mail address and PIN, and to set or
change your home and work addresses.
Personalization

11. FAQ’s
My phone is not producing audible output during GPS Navigation
The most common cause of this problem is that setting the audio level to VibeAll has defeated the phone speaker.
To change this, with the phone cover closed, adjust the audio volume louder until the level is set at 4 or 5. Press
the MENU key and look for RING TONES. You may find it on the next screen after pressing MORE. Highlight
RING TONES, and press the OK key. The first line is the VibeAll entry. Make sure it is set to OFF.
How do I increase or decrease the voice prompt volume and control the backlighting?
The backlight and speaker volume levels can be controlled from within TeleNav. Just follow the instructions above
under Preferences.
Why do I need the Nextel packet data service?
The Total Connect, or PacketStream plans allow you to access nationwide maps from the TeleNav server for
accurate turn-by-turn directions using the data communication features of your Java phone. These services are
different from your cellular airtime, and not the same as Nextel Web Online.
How long after I apply for the Nextel packet data service until I can use my TeleNav system?
Generally, it takes until the following business morning before Total Connect is fully provisioned.
How much packet data have I used?
Your Nextel phone tracks this usage. Press MENU, and then scroll down to MORE. After selecting MORE, or if
you do not find MORE, select CALL TIMERS. Then, select KBYTES RESET. The next display will show you
approximately how many kilobytes you have used. Divide this number by 1000 to convert it to megabytes, and
compare this with your Total Connect, PowerApps or PacketStream plan limit. When you are finished looking,
press DONE. If you want your usage report to correlate with your Nextel bill, press RESET once monthly on the
day Nextel closes your billing cycle.
Does TeleNav use up my voice plan minutes?
TeleNav uses packet data to provide the navigation function. Using packet data does not use any of your voice
minutes. However, calling the Voice Address Input System does use about 70 seconds per address entered, and
this includes the Voice Call feature internal to the TeleNav application.

How accurate is the GPS?
GPS accuracy can range from 20m to 100m, however most of the time the GPS is accurate to less than 50 meters.
Our external GPS receiver also uses WAAS technology to further reduce the error.
What is ideal GPS environment?
The GPS requires an open, clear view of the sky. Buildings, covered parking areas, tunnels and dense foliage can
cause the GPS receiver to either be unable to locate itself (fix) or have extended initialization time (start-up fix).
If you are parked in a covered parking lot or near a tall building, it is recommended that you move away till you have
a clear view of the sky and then begin to use the TeleNav service.
You may need to give the GPS a few minutes to find its location.
How do I know that the GPS has a signal?
The TeleNav application on your phone will alert you if the GPS does not have a valid signal. If this happens, drive
to an area where there is a clear view of the sky so the GPS can find itself. You can also invoke the GPS
application by pressing MENU, highlight GPS or the satellite icon and pressing the OK key. Then, highlight
position, and REFRESH if necessary. If the screen shows SCANNING for more than 60 seconds, you are
probably in a poor GPS reception area.
Why does the GPS not work near buildings and other tall objects?
The GPS uses satellite signals from space to find out where it is. Therefore it needs a clear view of the sky. Tall
buildings and other objects that block the receiver’s view to the sky make it infeasible to determine your location.
Sometimes the satellites are not overhead but near the horizon; in these cases the GPS must have a clear view of
the horizon.
How do I enter my destination?
Your destination can be entered in three ways. The first way is to call 877-886-9762 or 408-523-1429 and “dictate”
your destination address to the Voice Address Input System. Then you launch the TeleNav application on your
Java phone and this address automatically shows up in the recent destinations list.
The second way to enter your destination is to type it in using the keypad. Details are provided above.
The third way is to go to www.telenav.com, log in, and then enter your destination address, or multiple destination
addresses (up to 10 since this is all the phone can display at once).
Why do I have to call in a phone number to enter an address?
There are multiple ways to enter an address: a) Call the Voice Address Input system and dictate the address, b)
preplan it by logging into www.telenav.com, and c) entering directly on the phone keypad.
