Warning
Warranty
This
device complies with Part 15 of the FCC interference limits for Class B digital devices FOR HOME OR OFFICE USE. These limits
are designed to provide more reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation and are more stringent
than “outdoor” requirements. Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions: 1) This device may not cause harmful
interference and 2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
WARNING
Statements identify
conditions that could
result in personal
injury or loss of life.
Before installing and using the Cobra NAV ONE system, please read these general precautions and warnings. It is strongly recommended
to read this entire manual to be familiar with the system’s features, and know how to operate it.
Warning
WARNINGS
n DO NOT think this NAV ONE is a substitute for personal judgment. The route suggestions should never supersede
any local traffic regulation or personal judgment and/or knowledge of safe driving practices. Before making any
maneuvers suggested by the NAV ONE system (for example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that the maneuver
can be legally and safely completed. Do not follow route suggestions if they suggest an unsafe or illegal maneuver,
would place the vehicle in an unsafe situation or would route the vehicle into an area that could be unsafe.
n DO NOT program this NAV ONE while driving. Only a passenger should operate controls or program the unit while
the vehicle is in motion. The driver should not program the system unless the vehicle is parked in a safe location.
n ONLY glance at the screen when necessary and safe to do so. Listen to the computer voice guidance. If prolonged
viewing is necessary, pull off the road to a safe location.
n DO NOT use this NAV ONE system to locate emergency services (such as police, fire stations, hospitals and clinics). The
database may not include all emergency service providers. Use best judgment and ask for directions in these situations.
n DO NOT position the unit in a location that obstructs the driver’s view of the road, instruments or controls to operate the vehicle.
n DO NOT drive the vehicle unless the unit is securely attached to the windshield with the supplied bracket and suction cup or is fastened
by other reliable means to keep it from becoming a projectile hazard inside the vehicle in the event of a violent maneuver or collision.
n DO NOT mount the unit over airbag panels or within airbag expansion spaces. The force of an expanding airbag
can thrust objects in its path toward the driver or passengers with injurious result.
n DO position the unit so the screen can be viewed with just a quick glance.
n DO set the volume at a level that will allow the hearing of outside traffic and emergency services.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cobra recommends
that the system be
used for a while with
the default settings;
then users may
make changes.

Address/intersection
Where do you want to go?
Starting with zip code
When selecting an address or intersection, the best starting point is the zip code for the desired destination.
By entering the zip code as the first element of the address, the NAV ONE system will zoom in and look
at only that area. It will always return an associated state and either a single city or a short list to choose
from if more than one city shares the zip code. It allows the quickest destination address selection.
At the 2 Address menu, scroll
or
to zip and press ENTER.
56
Starting with state
If the zip code is not known, the state in which the destination is located must be the first address element
to be entered. This also allows the system to zoom in on a segment of its database for efficient searching.
At the 2 Address menu, scroll
or
to [State] and press ENTER.
56
56
Completing the address or intersection
After the state has been selected, scroll
or
to the next blank elements — city, street, and number or
cross-street — in turn. Press ENTER and select the element using spell or list modes.
Once the address or intersection is completely filled in, the GO function button will become active. Pressing
ENTER or the GO function button will proceed to the 2 Select Route Criteria menu.
Street or intersection
The INTERSECTION function button toggles the system from the 2 Address menu to the 2 Intersection menu.
The address element entry process is the same for both methods until the last step at which either the street
number or the cross street is entered. It is possible to toggle between these modes after the state, city and
street have been entered. Instructions for the 2 Address menu apply to the 2 Intersection menu as well.
Clear function
When using the address/intersection method to select a destination, the CLEAR function will clear the highlighted entry
as well as any sub-fields. For instance, clearing the city field will also clear the street and number or cross-street fields.

Point of interest
Point of interest
Selecting a POI as a destination allows a public place to be found without necessarily
knowing the address. The NAV ONE database includes thousands of points of interest
in over 40 categories from airports to museums to restaurants. This mode can also be
used as a means of finding the address and telephone number of any location in the
POI database — the data is shown in the final screen of each selection process.

Select by phone number
Allows the telephone number of the destination to be entered. Then narrows the choice to one location if there are multiple
locations with the same telephone number, such as an 800 number for a hotel chain. At the [By Phone Number] bar of the
2 Select POI Search Method menu, press ENTER to proceed to a series of menus that allow completion of the selection.
Search limits
When the [Sort by Distance] preference is chosen during the POI selection process, the system will return a list of locations
with the nearest one first. Some of those may be across the border of a nearby state. When the STATE function icon is shown,
the system will search only in that state. In that case, change the state to find points in other states.

Off route events
Off route events
During a trip, the
NAV ONE system
offers help if a turn
is missed or a side
trip is taken from a
calculated route. It
also allows changes
to be made enroute
— including detours,
changing route criteria
and trip plans, and
canceling navigation.
Leaving a calculated route
Within a short distance of the vehicle leaving a calculated route, the NAV ONE system will recognize the deviation and provide helpful
information. In the case of a missed turn or similar situation, the system will provide voice prompts, such as, “Please make a legal
U-turn,” to return to the calculated route while the system remains in the active navigation screen.
If a longer deviation is made and the prompts to return to the route are ignored, the system will calculate a new route to the destination
— often a mini-route to intercept the original route at a later point — provided the auto reroute option is turned on. The new route will
be displayed in the active navigation screen and the voice prompts will adjust accordingly. If auto reroute is turned off, the system will
suspend guidance until the user takes some action such as [Detour] or [Cancel].

Trip data
The NAV ONE system keeps
track of information about each
trip and the 2 Trip Data screen
can be viewed at any time to
retrieve it for the current or
most recent trip. Users can
select two of the data items.
Trail mode
This feature can be used to record
vehicle movements. Instead of
guiding the vehicle on a route
calculated in advance, it captures
the route actually taken. Once a
trail is recorded and saved, it can
be used to retrace the route or
to repeat it in the future.

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.
