Ü and statements Please pay special attention Notice Customer Assistance to the CAUTION symbols and statements in this manual. Customer Assistance Caution Secondary Icons Warranty CAUTION Statements identify conditions that could Warning cause damage to the system or other equipment. Caution CAUTIONS n The user is responsible for operating this product wisely. This NAV ONE system is intended for use only as a navigational Warning aid and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of other information. Be aware of conditions around the vehicle and compare them to the information provided by the NAV ONE system. n The Global Positioning System is provided and operated by the U.S. government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes, which could affect the accuracy and performance of this NAV ONE system. n This NAV ONE is not waterproof. Do not allow liquids to splash on it nor expose it to rain during operation or transfer from vehicle to vehicle. n Do not disassemble or modify the unit as this may lead to damage. If a problem occurs, stop using the system immediately and contact a Cobra dealer. Changes or modifications to the unit may void its compliance with FCC rules and make it illegal to use. n The NAV ONE system’s map database provides information on suggested routes without regard to factors that may affect the user’s driving experience or the time required to arrive at the desired destination. For example, the system does not reflect road detours, closures or construction, some road characteristics (e.g., road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions, etc.), temporary traffic congestion, weather conditions and similar factors. Use personal judgment or the NAV ONE system’s detour mode to develop an alternate route if necessary. n Do not remove the unit from the windshield or quick release bracket while the unit is turned on. The NAV ONE contains a hard drive, which spins at high speed while the unit is turned on. Handling the unit while the drive is spinning could damage it. When the unit is off, the hard drive is parked in a more secure condition. n Dismount the unit when parked. This will not only minimize the chance of theft but will also reduce the unit’s exposure to heat and strong sunlight which can shorten the life of the internal components. n Do read the Important safety information sections on pages 4 and 5 of this manual before using this NAV ONE system. Nothing Comes Close to a Cobra® 5 6 Installation Installation The unit can be mounted to the vehicle’s windshield with the included bracket and suction cup, or an alternative mounting can be devised. THE UNIT MUST BE FIRMLY ATTACHED TO THE VEHICLE. If it is not, it can become a projectile hazard to vehicle occupants and possibly cause serious injury during a violent maneuver or crash. View From the Top Do not let the mount block the view of the sky. Position the unit where it is visible at a glance but will not obstruct the driver’s view of the road or interfere with the use of vehicle instruments and controls. Do not put the unit over airbag panels or within airbag deployment envelopes. Position the unit so the antenna can “see” the sky. Alternative mounting recommended for high-pitched windshields. The unit should be as close to vertical as possible and not tilted front-to-back or side-to-side. To secure and connect the NAV ONE: First, select a suitable location where the unit can be mounted vertically and clean the mounting area. Then, separate the suction cup and mounting bracket assembly from the unit. 3 3 CAUTION All air must be removed. 1. FIRMLY press the suction cup against the windshield by applying pressure to the central PRESS button. Be sure the button is pressed all the way in to make sure ALL the air is out of the suction cup. 2. While maintaining FIRM pressure on the button, rotate the lock lever over the button. Test suction cup adhesion by pulling on the bracket. THE ASSEMBLY SHOULD NOT WIGGLE. If it does, unlock the lever and repeat steps 1 and 2. 3. Attach the unit to the mounting bracket by means of the quick release feature. 4. Plug the power cord into the unit and the vehicle’s 12 volt power socket. Use the quick release lever to temporarily remove the unit from the mounting bracket when the vehicle is parked to prevent theft or heat damage. Be sure to turn off the power before moving the unit to avoid damage to the hard drive where the database is stored. The suction cup portion of the bracket can be left attached to the windshield for quick reinstallation. If the vehicle has a metallic coated or integrally heated windshield, you may need to use the optional external antenna. Nothing Comes Close to a Cobra® 7 8 Basic operation, start-up and Preferences Basic operation and start-up Be sure to read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION on pages 4 and 5 before the first use of the NAV ONE system. Power on/off After installation is complete and the vehicle is in an open area, turn on the unit (press and hold the POWER button on the side of the unit). Each time the unit is turned on, a start-up screen appears on the LCD followed by a safety reminder and an opportunity to select a language. Then, pressing ENTER will bring up either the 2 Main menu or the 2 Continue route guidance menu. Each time the system is turned off (press the POWER button again), the system will retain all information to be recalled when it is turned on again. When the GPS Navigation System is new (or has been idle for more than seven days or has moved more than 500 miles while off), it can take up to five minutes for the system to lock onto the GPS satellites. After such a start-up, the system should be left turned on for at least 20 minutes to download GPS satellite data. Having updated satellite data will allow much faster satellite acquisition and lock — typically less than a minute — when the unit is turned on again. Preference menu Preferences Users can select settings from the 2 Preferences menu as shown to the right. To reach this menu, press the OPTION function button at the 2 Main menu, then ENTER at the [Preferences] bar on the 2 Option menu. ì NOTE Cobra recommends that the system be used for a while with the default settings; then users may make changes.

Ü system specifications The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radionavigation system. It consists of 24 satellites (which orbit the Earth at an altitude of approximately 11,000 miles) and ground stations. GPS provides users with accurate information on position, velocity and time. This is available anywhere in the world and in most weather conditions. GPS was initiated by The United States Department of Defense in 1973 to reduce the proliferation of navigation aids. By creating a robust system that overcame the limitations of many previously existing navigation systems, GPS became attractive to a broader spectrum of users. GPS has been successful in classic applications such as aviation and marine navigation since it was first developed. Since then, it has become useful for a wide range of people because its capabilities are accessible using small, affordable equipment. The GPS satellite network transmits radio signals to earth from high earth orbit. GPS service provides users with extremely accurate positioning information anywhere on or near the surface of the earth. To accomplish this, each of the 24 satellites emits signals to receivers below. GPS determines location by computing the difference between the time that a signal is sent and the time it is received. GPS satellites carry atomic clocks that provide extremely accurate time information. The time information is placed in the codes broadcast by the satellite so that a receiver can continuously determine the time the signal was broadcast. The signal contains data that the NAV ONE system uses to compute the locations of the satellites and to make other adjustments needed for accurate positioning. The NAV ONE system uses the time difference between the time of signal reception and the broadcast time to compute the distance from the receiver to the satellite. With information about the distance to four satellites and the location of each satellite when the signal was sent, the NAV ONE system can compute its own position: latitude and longitude.

Warranty Warranty . . . . . . . . . . Ü Cobra Electronics Corporation warrants that its Cobra NAV ONE, and the component parts thereof, will be free of defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year from the date of first consumer purchase. This warranty may be enforced by the first consumer purchaser, provided that the product is utilized within the U.S.A. Caution: Cobra makes no warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the map data in the NAV ONE and disclaims any and all express, implied or statutory warranties, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. It is the user’s responsibility to use this product prudently. This product is intended to be used only as a travel aid and must not be used for any purpose requiring precise measurement of direction, distance, location or topography. Cobra will, without charge, repair or replace, at its option, defective NAV ONE products or component parts upon delivery to the Cobra Factory Service Department, accompanied by proof of the date of first consumer purchase, such as a duplicated copy of a sales receipt. The consumer must pay any initial shipping charges required to ship the product for warranty service, but the return charges will be at Cobra’s expense, if the product is repaired or replaced under warranty. This warranty gives the consumer specific rights, and he or she may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Exclusions: This limited warranty does not apply: 1) to any product damaged by accident; 2) in the event of misuse or abuse of the product or as a result of unauthorized alterations or repairs; 3) if the serial number has been altered, defaced or removed; 4) if the owner of the product resides outside the U.S.A. All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are limited in duration to the length of this warranty. Cobra shall not be liable for any incidental, consequential or other damages; including, without limitation, damages resulting from loss of use or cost of installation. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and/or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to some consumers.
