THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) NETWORK
GPS is a world-wide radio navigation system based on a group of about 26 satellites and their
associated ground stations. A GPS receiver uses signals from the sateJlites to calculate its position
and attitude. The basis of GPS operation is triangulation, and the receiver uses the travel time of
radio signals from the satellites to calculate its distance from each one using a technique called
"pseudoranging". It can then create lines of position.
The satellites transmit two types of signals called "CIA~ (coarse/acquisition) and·PO (precision) . The
latter are encrypted and can only be used by military GPS receivers. As with all other GPS units
available to the public, the GMA-GPS makes use of the CIA signals to establish position and
altitude. The accuracy of a displayed position vanes with a number of factors including time.
4
Generally, the position displayed by a GPS receiver using the CIA signals should by accurate to
within 100 feet, and for 50% of the time it shoUld be accurate to within about 40 feet. It is normal for
the displayed position to "wander" slightly over time. For the same reason, the altitude displayed by
a GPS receiver will also vary slightly.
II is important to understand that such variations are inherent in GPS and do not indicate a fault in
the receiver. Remember also, that GPS is operated by the DOD and is subject to military requirements. There is no guarantee that signals will always be available, or that any displayed poSition or
altitude will be accurate.
THE GPS RECEIVER
A GPS receiver such as the GMR-GPS uses the CIA signals from the satellites to determine its
position on earth. Signals from three satellites are needed to provide an unambiguous position fix,
with reliable attitude indications requiring a fourth. In most circumstances, a GPS receiver will be
able to receive signals from more than four satellites and can decide which it will use to give the best
position.
Signals from GPS satellites are relatively weak and are easily blocked by obstacles or local screen·
ing. GPS receivers may bot work well indoors, in vehicles or underneath trees or foliage. For best
results, the receiver should be able to "see" as much of the sky as possible.
THE GMR-GPS UNIT
The Audiovox GMR-GPS provides you with the features of a precise hand-held GPS unit designed
for general purpose locating and navigation. Not only can it determine your actual position. it can
also guide you to a destination by establishing and storing waypoints to mark the trail or route, and
allow you to return to your original starting point.
But what makes this unit unique, is the incorporation of GMRS capability, whereby your position
can be transmitted to another GMR-GPS unit, thereby allowing another party to know your exact
position, your intended route, and how long it will take you to arrive at that position.
By including three modes of operation, your GMA-GPS can act as a mobile radio transceiver only,
as a GPS unit only or as a combination of the two technologies for navigation and communication
purposes. The GMR-GPS incorporates the following features and capabilities:
•
•
•
•
•
WAYPOINTS: The unit provides 150 waypoints with user-selected names and graphic
symbols.
ROUTE: Lets you navigate up to 10 routes with 20 way points in each route.
TRACKS: Provides an automatic track log using live saved tracks; these tracks allow
the user to locate the beginning and end point of each track.
MARK: Allows the user to save and transmit his/her location to other GMR-GPS units
tuned to the same channel (up to a distance of approximately 5 miles).
GP LOCATOR: Allows the user to receive and store position coordinates of other
GMR-GPS users.

a. DATUMS - Since maps and charts are created using a starting reference point called a
datum, this starting point will differ from map-to-map. The most common mathematical
ellipsoid used is WGS.a4 (World Geodetic System 1984). In addition to the WGS-84
standard, a great many other datums are available for entry depending on user location.
If you use maps or charts specifying a datum other than WGS-84, you should change

PAGING THROUGH GPS FUNCTIONS
INITIALIZING THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM MODE
Before using the GPS mode of your GMR-GPS unit for the first time, the GPS receiver needs to
automatically determine its location. To initialize the GPS receiver, proceed as follows:
WATCHING SATELLITE ACQUISITION ON THE GPS STANDBY!STATUS PAGES
Your GMR-GPS unit operates on positional data acquired from NAVSTAR satellites. To introduce
your unit to this information:
1. Find a large, relatively open area that provides a clear view of the sky, with a minimum of
2.
3.
obstructions, such as buildin9s, radio towers, etc.
Press and hold the Power (C) )/Mark (M) button on the left side of the unit for at least 2
seconds.
A beep and melody will sound and the standby screen will appear on the LCD. If the unit is
being turned on for the first time, the standby screen will default to the RADIO + GPS mode,
or it will reflect the standby screen for the mode previously used.
The GMR-GPS unit needs to receive at least three strong satellite signals to find your location.
The standby page graphically shows the unit acquiring satellites as the satellite icons around the
globe circumference become animated and darken. SEARCHING appears under the 10 bar at the top
of the display. When you see NAVIGATION appear, your GMR-GPS has found your location and you
are ready to use all of its GPS capabilities.
4.
If the unit is ready for NAVIGATION, each of the satellites providing
current GPS user location should be highlighted, and should equal or
exceed 3 as shown around the circumference of the globe icon (4 or more
is preferable). If the unit is SEARCHING, wait approximately 5 minutes
for the satellite(s) to find your position. The NAVIGATION indication should
appear. Thereafter, during subsequent GPS operation, acquisition time
should only take from 5 to 45 seconds. If satellite acquisition does not
occur within approximately 7 minutes, a message appears indicating the
signal has been lost and asking whether or not you wish to initialize the
unit again. It NO is your option, the unit will indicate SLEEP MODE on the
GPS + RADIO and GPS ONLY standby page. Press the PIT button to
re-enter the SEARCHING mode. It YES is your option, the unit will re-enter

the SEARCHING mode.
SELECTING PAGES
As described earlier, the information needed to operate your GMR-GPS is contained on six main
pages; namely, the Standby page, Navigation page, Map page, Pointer page, GPS Menu page and
Setup page. To scroll through the pages, simply press the PAGE button. Depending upon the Mode
selected, as explained previously, there can be three different Standby pages. The following discussion describes the three types of standby pages, plus the other five pages.
STANDBY PAGES
There can be three different Standby pages, each dependent on the Mode selected using the Setup
page.
21
GPS + RtJdlo Standby Page
The GPS + RADIO Standby page automatically appears as the default page if the unit is being
turned on for the first time, or if it ls selected as the operational mode using the SETUP page. In
additoo to depicting satellite acquisition (SEARCHINGlNAVIGATION), this page also displays the
foJlowing Information:
1. A user identification (I D) code consisting of eight characters maximum. If no user ID
code appears, refer to basic setup mode.
2. The number of acquired satellites. (This could fluctuate depending on clear-sky conditions
or the relative position of the unit's GPS antenna as it is carried or transported.)
3. The volume level bar graph relative to radio (GMRS) operation. (See Adjusting the
Volume.)
4. The current time, either on a 12..tlour or 24-hour basis (refer to SETUP mode) .
5. The primary GMRS channel number.
6. The GMRS CTCSS sub-code assoclated with the primary channel number (if one was
previously selected).

nr. Gateway Pllge
To simplify the transition between GPS-related page displays, a Gateway page Is provided which
allows you to jump between main pages in the GPS modes (GPS + RADIO and GPS ONLY), rather
than have to scroll through unrelated pages to acquire a desired page. When operating in a GPS
mode, the Gateway page can be acquired from any display. To accomplish Gateway page
acquisition:
1. From any display in either GPS mode, press and hold the PAGE button for at least 2
seconds; the Gateway display will appear, offering anyone of six page selections to go to.
2. The title at the top of the Gateway display will differ according to the mode display it was
accessed from; e.g., if the GPS MENU page was in use, a jump to the Gateway page will
resutt in the Menu page icon being highlighted. and the page title will change to MENU.
3. To access any of the six GPS menu pages from the Gateway page, use the UpIDown wheet
key to highlight the desired page icon; then press Enter to access the page.
4. To return to the Gateway page, simply press and hold the PAGE button for at least 2
seconds.
NOTE: Remember that a momentary press of the PAGE button, whether from the Gateway

EXPLANATION OF HOT KEY MENU USE
The HOT KEY menu provides an easy and fast method of accessing and enabling the primary radio
functions when operating in the GPS + RADIO and RADIO ONLY modes.
Priority Channel Selection
In order to communicate with other GMRS units, both transmitting and receiving party must be on
the same frequency.
The radio function of the GMR-GPS has 15 channels (frequencies 1-15) as indicated on the HOT
Key page to the right altha CH item, and also on the standby page. Channels 1 through 7 are the
same frequency as FRS channels 1 through 7. Communication with Audiovox FRS and compatible

number wilt appear on the Standby page.
CTCSS Mode (Sub·Channel) Select/on
Coded Tone Controlled Squelch System (CTCSS) with 38 Sub-Frequencies. This feature allows you
to utilize the coded squelch tones (01-38) within a main channel. You can then communicate with
another party on the same main channel using the same subcode. (This filters out unwanted
transmissions without the same coded squelch tone). One of 38 different CTCSS subcodes may
be selected for each of the 15 channels.
To change the CTCSS Sub-channel:
From GPS + RADIO or RADIO ONLY standby mode, press the Enter switch to access the
HOT KEY screen; the channel number to the right of the CODE item will be highlighted.

Press Enter to confirm the subcode in memory. The subcode will appear on the standby
Page with the main channel frequency number.
IMPORTANT:
To communicate with other GMRS units, they must be switched to the same
channel and CTCSS subcode. To communicate with other GMRS units that do not
have subcodes, switch your unit to the same channel with the subcode set to 00.
The CTCSS subcodes do not prevent others from hearing your transmission. This
will only allow you to ignore all traffic on a given chanflel not using the same subcode.
All Channel SCitn Operation
This feature allows you to monitor all channels automatically for valid signals. While scanning, you
can transmit and receive. When a signal is received, the scan is interrupted and will return to scan
mode 5 seconds after reception is terminated.

rechargeable batteries is not recommended, as battery charging times will vary with different
brands of batteries. Reier to the manufacturer's instructions for charging other brands of
batteries.
NOTES FOR GOOD COMMUNICATION
1 . The 15 channels of the GMR-GPS are shared on a 'take tums' basis. This means other groups
may be talking on any of the channels. A common code of ethics/courtesy is to switch to
another vacant channel and not to attempt to talk over someone who is already using the
channel you first selected.
2. The GMR-GPS has been designed to maximize performance and improve transmission range
in the field. To avoid interference, it is recommended that you do not use the units closer than
5 feet apart.
3. For best transmission results, always keep your mouth about 2-3 inches from the microphone
(4) and speak slowly in a normal voice.
4. To increase battery life, avoid features such as LCD backlighting for prolonged periods of
time. Features such as this will reduce operating time considerably.
