PMD-B200P Version 2.0 Owner’s Manual
1 Important Information
Please Read Carefully Before Using This Product
This product is intended to safely provide turn by turn instruction to get you to a desired destination.
Please read the following precautions to ensure that you use your navigation system correctly.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
This product is not a substitute for your personal judgment. Any route suggestions made by
the navigation system may never supersede any local traffic regulations or your personal
judgment and/or knowledge of safe driving practices. Do not follow route suggestions if the
navigation system instructs you to perform an unsafe or illegal manoeuvre, places you in an
unsafe situation, or routes you into an area which you consider unsafe.
Glance at the monitor screen only when necessary and safe to do so. If prolonged viewing of
the screen is necessary, stop the vehicle in a safe and legal manner and location.
Do not input destinations, change settings, or access any functions requiring prolonged
viewing of the monitor and/or remote control while you are driving. Stop the vehicle in safe
and legal manner and location before attempting to access the system.
Do not use the navigation system to route you to emergency services. Not all locations of
emergency service providers such as police and fire stations, hospitals and clinics are
contained in the database. Please use your own judgment and your ability to ask for
directions in these situations.
The map database contained within the media in which it is stored is the most recent map
data available at the time of production. Because of changes in streets and neighbourhoods,
there may be situations where the navigation system may not be able to route you to your
desired destination. In these cases, use your own personal judgment.
The map database is designed to provide you with route suggestions. It does not take
account of the relative safety of a suggested route, or of factors which may affect the time
required to reach your destination. The database does not reflect road closures or
construction, road characteristics (i.e. type of road surface, slope or grade, weight or height
restrictions, etc.), traffic congestion, weather conditions, or any other factors which may affect
the safety or timing of your driving experience. Use your personal judgment if the navigation
system is unable to provide you with an alternate route.
There may be situations where the navigation system may display the vehicle’s location
erroneously. Use your own driving judgment in this situation, taking into account current
driving conditions. Please be aware that in this situation the navigation system should correct
the vehicle’s position automatically; however, there may be times when you may have to
correct the position yourself. If this is the case, stop the vehicle in safe and legal manner and
location before attempting operation.
Make certain that the volume level of the monitor is set to a level which still allows you to hear
outside traffic and emergency vehicles. Driving while unable to hear outside sounds could
cause an accident.
Please make certain that any other person who intends on using the navigation system reads
these precautions and the following instructions carefully.
If there is anything in the manual which you do not understand, or are uncertain about the
operation of the navigation system, please contact an authorised ALPINE representative
before using the navigation system.

Characteristics of LCD Panel
•
After turning the system off, a slight ghost of the image will remain temporarily. This is an
effect peculiar to LCD technology and is normal.
•
Under cold temperature conditions, the screen may lose contrast temporarily. After a short
warmup period, it will return to normal.
•
The LCD panel is manufactured using an extremely high precision manufacturing technology.
Its effective pixel ratio is over 99.99%. This means that 0.01% of the pixels could be either
always ON or OFF.
Using Headphones
If ACC or the monitor's power source is turned off, a loud noise may be produced through the
headphone jack. Be sure to remove the headphones from your ears before you turn the monitor off.

6 Getting started with Alpine Navigation Software
Alpine Navigation Software is optimised for in-car use. You can use it easily by tapping the screen
buttons and the map with your fingertips.
Alpine Navigation Software can plan routes throughout the whole installed map set; you do not need
to change maps or switch to a poorly detailed general map to navigate between map segments or
countries.
Tasks
Double tapping the
screen
Tapping and holding
the screen
Instructions
You do not need to tap the screen twice for any action. With buttons and
controls, a single tap is enough.
You do not need this to access the basic navigation functions. Tap and keep
pressing the following buttons to reach extra functions:

You do not need gestures to access the basic navigation features. You need
to drag and drop the screen only in cases like:
•
Moving the handle on a slider.
•
Moving the map: grab the map, and move it in the desired direction.
•
Shortcut to open the Map screen: slide your finger from the bottom
right corner to the bottom left corner on any screen.
•
Shortcut to open the Navigation menu: slide your finger from the top
left corner to the bottom left corner on any screen.
Start using Alpine Navigation Software
The Blackbird can be used in several hardware configurations (see page 13), but when you first turn
on the device, you need to do the following:
1.
Select the written language of the application interface. Later you can change it in Settings
(page 66).
2.
Select the language and speaker used for voice guidance messages. Later you can change it
in Settings (page 66).
3.
Read and accept the End User Licence Agreement (page 5).
After this, the Navigation menu appears and you can start using Alpine Navigation Software.

The typical way of using Alpine Navigation Software is to select a destination, and start navigating.
You can select your destination in the following ways:
•
Use the selected location on the map (the Cursor) (page 31).
•
Enter a full address or a part of an address, for example a street name without a house number
or the names of two intersecting streets (page 32).
•
Enter an address with postal code (page 37). This way you do not need to select the name of
the settlement and the search for street names might be faster as well.

6.1 Operating modes
Although your Blackbird is a handheld navigation device, it can be used in several hardware
configurations for both pedestrian and in-vehicle use. The functionality of the software is the same for
all navigation functions, and only a few extra features appear when not used as a handheld device.
See below for details.
Handheld mode
Use your Blackbird as a portable navigation device. The built-in battery will provide you with several
hours of operation time after fully charged. The full functionality of the navigation software and the
multimedia applications are available in this operating mode.
The only navigation feature you cannot access in Handheld mode is the Traffic service. TMC
messages can only be received when the Blackbird is inserted into the cradle or the docking adapter.
Cradle mode
Mount the cradle to the windscreen or on the dashboard of your car as explained in the Quick
Reference Guide. Insert the Blackbird into the cradle, and use it as in Handheld mode (the touch
screen and hardware buttons work normally).
In Cradle mode you can access the public Traffic messages received through FM RDS. A Traffic
button appears on the Map screen, and you can select from FM radio stations in TMC Settings
(page 69).
13
Autogood products internet store http://130.com.ua
PMD-B200P Version 2.0 Owner’s Manual
In Cradle mode you can also access the FM transmitter of the Blackbird. Select a suitable frequency
in Settings, and tune your car stereo to the same frequency. You can hear the voice prompts of Alpine
Navigation Software as well as the music played with the multimedia application of your Blackbird
through your car speakers.
Docking mode
Open the front panel of your Alpine Mobile Media Station and insert the Blackbird into its docking slot,
or use the optional docking adapter to connect your Blackbird to an Alpine multimedia head unit.
In this mode you cannot access the touch screen or hardware buttons of the Blackbird, but you can
use the touch display of the multimedia station, or you can use the IR remote control unit to instruct
the navigation software.
In Docking mode you can access the public Traffic messages received through FM RDS. A Traffic
button appears on the Map screen, and you can select from FM radio stations in TMC Settings (page
69).

6.2 Hardware buttons
You can use Alpine Navigation Software mostly by tapping the touch screen. The device has only a
few hardware buttons.
You can turn Blackbird on or off at any time with the button on the top of the device. When Blackbird
is switched off, Alpine Navigation Software does not calculate your GPS position and it does not
update the route or the driving instructions.
When you turn Blackbird on again, Alpine Navigation Software continues navigating as soon as the
GPS receiver has determined your position.

6.3 Buttons and other controls on the screen
When you are using Alpine Navigation Software, you usually tap buttons on the touch screen.
You only need to confirm selections or changes in Alpine Navigation Software if the application needs
to restart, it needs to perform a major reconfiguration, or you are about to lose some of your data or
settings. Otherwise, Alpine Navigation Software saves your selections and applies the new settings
without confirmation as soon as you use the controls.

6.4.2 Lane information and Signposts
When navigating on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to follow the
recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, Alpine Navigation Software
displays the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map. Arrows in yellow
represent the lanes you need to take.
Where there is additional information available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are always
displayed at the top of the map. The colour and style of the signposts are similar to the real ones you
can see above road or by the roadside. They show the available destinations and the number of the
road the lane leads to.
All signposts look similar when cruising (when there is no recommended route). When navigating a
route, only that signpost is displayed in vivid colours that points to the lane(s) to be taken; all others
are darkened out.

6.5 Alpine Navigation Software concepts
6.5.1 Auto Zoom
Auto Zoom provides much more than just a usual automatic zoom feature:
•
While following a route calculated by Alpine Navigation Software: when approaching a
turn, it will zoom in and raise the view angle to let you easily recognise your manoeuvre at the
next junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat
so you can see the road in front of you.
•
While driving without an active route in Alpine Navigation Software: Auto Zoom will zoom
in if you drive slowly and zoom out when you drive at high speed.

The exact location of the position marker depends on the vehicle type used for route calculation. The
vehicle type can be selected in Route settings (page 64).

6.5.3 Daytime and night colour profiles
Alpine Navigation Software uses different colour profiles during the day and during the night.
•
Daytime colours are similar to paper road maps.
•
The night colour profiles use dark colours for large objects to keep the average brightness of
the screen low.
3

Alpine Navigation Software offers different daytime and night colour profiles. It can also switch
automatically between the daytime and the night schemes based on the current time and GPS
position a few minutes before sunrise, when the sky has already turned bright, and a few minutes
after sunset, before it becomes dark.
6.5.4 Colour scheme in tunnels
When entering a tunnel, the colours of the map change. All buildings disappear, large objects (such
as surface waters or forests) and empty areas between roads become black.
However, roads and streets keep their original colours from the daytime or night colour scheme
currently used.
After leaving the tunnel, the original colours return.

Alpine Navigation Software automatically recalculates the route if you deviate from the proposed
itinerary.
Depending on the type of the TMC event, Alpine Navigation Software also recalculates the route if a
TMC event concerns a part of the recommended route.

6.5.7 Track Logs
Alpine Navigation Software can log the track that you drive (page 42).
A Track Log is a recording of how your GPS position changed and it is independent of the route
Alpine Navigation Software calculated.
Track Logs can be recorded, renamed, replayed, shown on the map, exported to a memory card in
GPX format, and deleted. See page 61.
Independently of the normal track log, you can instruct Alpine Navigation Software to record the
native GPS data received from the GPS device. These logs are saved as separate text files on an
inserted memory card, and they cannot be shown or replayed in Alpine Navigation Software.

6.5.9 POI (Points of Interest)
,
,
.
A point of interest (POI) is a location that someone might find useful or interesting. Alpine Navigation
Software is delivered with thousands of POIs and you can also create your own POIs in the
application.
POI locations are marked on the map with special icons. POI icons are quite large so you can easily
recognise the symbol. The icons are semi-transparent: they do not cover the streets and intersections
behind them.
POIs are grouped into several levels of categories and subcategories. The icon of a POI that comes
with the map shows the symbol of the POI category. If you save your own POI, you can select an icon
for it independently of the POI category you have put it in.

6.5.10.1 Camera types
There are different types of Road Safety Cameras.
Icon
Type
Fixed
Description
Some speed cameras stand by the roadside, looking in one direction,
measuring one or both directions of the traffic. They measure your
current speed. For these speed cameras you can specify the
controlled traffic direction and the speed limit. Alpine Navigation
Software warns you when you approach these speed cameras in the
measured direction. If your speed exceeds the speed limit near the
speed camera, Alpine Navigation Software plays a special warning
sound.
Some speed cameras are operated from vehicles. They do not always
work and they are not set to check a preset speed limit. The warning is
similar to fixed speed cameras, but as there is no speed limit given,
only the proximity is announced.
Mobile
Built-in
Some speed cameras are built into traffic lights. They work like fixed
speed cameras, but they are difficult to spot. The warning for proximity
and speeding is the same as for the fixed speed cameras.

These speed cameras work in pairs, and do not measure your current
speed but your average speed between the two speed cameras. Both
identify your car and record the exact time you pass them. They use
the difference between the two points in time to calculate your average
speed.
Alpine Navigation Software warns you when you approach one of
these speed cameras, but as you pass by, the warning stays on, and
your average speed is measured until you reach another speed
camera of this type. If your average speed exceeds the speed limit
between the two speed cameras, you receive the same special
warning sound as with the other speed camera types.

In the rare case Alpine Navigation Software cannot register the
moment you pass the second speed camera (for example, it is placed
at the exit of a tunnel where GPS position is not yet available) the
warning continues. Just tap the speed camera symbol displayed on
the screen to stop the warning.
Tap again to display the second route event with the possibility to open
the Itinerary.
Red light
These cameras check if you obey traffic lights. The warning is similar
to mobile speed cameras: as there is no speed limit given, only the
proximity is announced.
6.5.10.2 Camera directions
A speed camera can measure the speed of one direction of the traffic, both directions, or even several
directions in an intersection, when they are mounted on a rotating base. The same directions apply to
red light cameras. Alpine Navigation Software warns you only if you drive in a measured or possibly
measured direction. The measured direction of the camera appears with the following symbols:

6.5.11 Speed limit warning
Maps sometimes contain information about the speed limits of the road segments. This information
may not be available for your region (ask your local dealer) or may not be fully correct for all roads on
the map.

6.5.12 TMC (Traffic Message Channel) - available in Cradle mode and Docking mode
Alpine Navigation Software can provide you with even better routes if Traffic Message Channel (TMC)
information is available. TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System (RDS) used for
broadcasting real-time traffic and weather information.
TMC is enabled by default in Alpine Navigation Software.
Note!
TMC is not a global service. It may not be available in your country or region. Ask your
local dealer for coverage details.
Your device contains the TMC receiver device that is needed to receive TMC data. To receive the
signal, you also need a TMC antenna, that is why this function works only in Cradle mode and
Docking mode.
If public TMC data is broadcast at your location, Alpine Navigation Software automatically takes into
account the TMC data received. You do not need to set anything in the program. The receiver will
automatically search the FM radio stations for TMC data, and the decoded information will
immediately be used in route planning. The moment Alpine Navigation Software receives traffic
information that may affect your route, the program will warn you that it is recalculating the route, and
navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal considering the most up-to-date traffic
conditions.
You can access the list of TMC events, change TMC related settings, and select or ignore specific
radio stations in the list of TMC events. On the Map screen, tap

7 Navigating with Alpine Navigation Software
You can set up your route in Alpine Navigation Software in several ways:
•
if you need a simple route (a route with only one destination, without any intermediate
waypoints), you can select the destination and start navigating to it right away
•
you can plan a multi-point route
•
you can also plan a route independently of your current GPS position or even without GPS
reception
7.1 Selecting the destination of a route
Alpine Navigation Software offers you several ways of choosing your destination and waypoints
(intermediate destinations):
•
Use the selected location on the map (the Cursor) (page 31).
•
Enter a full address or a part of an address, for example a street name without a house number
or the names of two intersecting streets (page 32).
•
Enter an address with postal code (page 37). This way you do not need to select the name of
the settlement and the search for street names might be faster as well.
•
Use a coordinate (page 40)
•
Use a saved location:

7.1.2.7 Tips on entering addresses quickly
•
When you are entering the name of a settlement or a street, Alpine Navigation Software only
displays those characters that appear in possible search results. The other characters are
greyed out.
•
When entering the settlement name or the street name, tap the
button after a
couple of letters; Alpine Navigation Software lists the items that contain the specified letters.
•
You can speed up finding an intersection:
•
Search first for the street with a less common or less usual name; fewer letters are
enough to find it.
•
If one of the streets is shorter, search for that one first. You can then find the second
one faster.
37
Autogood products internet store http://130.com.ua
PMD-B200P Version 2.0 Owner’s Manual
•
You can search for both the type and the name of a road. If the same word appears in several
names, for example in the name of streets, roads and avenues, you can obtain the result faster
if you enter the first letter of the street type: For example, enter PI A to obtain Pine Avenue and
skip all Pine Streets and Pickwick Roads.
•
You can also search in postal codes. This is useful when a street name is common and it is
used in several districts of a city.

7.2 Creating a multi-point route (inserting a waypoint)
Multi-point routes are created from simple routes, so a route must be active first with your final
destination. The way of expanding the route is to keep the destination, and to add waypoints
(intermediate destinations).

you enter the screen, the new waypoint is placed as the first waypoint to be reached. The new point is
the highlighted point in the list.
You have the following options:

The selected point moves up in the list (becomes a waypoint to be reached earlier). Tap
this button repeatedly, and the point becomes the start point of the route (when routing
from a given location) or the first waypoint to reach (when routing from the GPS
position).
The selected point moves down in the list (becomes a waypoint to be reached later).
Tap this button repeatedly, and the point becomes the final destination of the route.
Tap this button to optimise the route. The start point and the destination remain at their
position, but the waypoints are reordered to make the shortest possible route.
Tap this button to remove the selected point from the route. The route remains as it was
before adding the new point.

When you save a route, Alpine Navigation Software not only saves the route points but the whole
itinerary:

The saved route might have been influenced by TMC information. When you later use the
route, it appears as it was saved. But if it needs to be recalculated, the current TMC
information will be used in the new route.
•
If you updated your map since you first saved the route, Alpine Navigation Software recognises
the change, and recalculates the driving instructions according to the latest available map
information.
•
If you want to save the route, you need to save it before you start navigating. During
navigation, Alpine Navigation Software deletes any waypoints that you already left behind
together with the road segments used to reach it.

Alpine Navigation Software is primarily intended for land navigation. That is why maps in Alpine
Navigation Software look similar to paper road maps. However, Alpine Navigation Software provides
much more than regular paper maps: you can customise the look and the content of the map.
The most important and most often used screen of Alpine Navigation Software is the Map screen.
During navigation, the screen shows route information and trip data (left screenshot), but when you
tap the map, additional buttons and controls appear for a few seconds (right screenshot). Most parts
of the screen behave as buttons.

Cursor (selected map location)
The location selected in the Destination menu, or a
map point selected by tapping the map.
Start point
The first point of the route.

You can also modify the start point in the Cursor
menu. If you do so, automatic off-route recalculation
needs to be turned off to keep the selected point as
the start point.
If automatic off-route recalculation is disabled for any
of the above, tapping the
icon in the Turn
Preview field not only initiates route recalculation from
the current GPS position, but it will re-enable the
automatic off-route recalculation as well.
Waypoint
A waypoint is an intermediate destination. You can
place as many waypoints as you want.
Destination (end point)
The last point of the route, the final destination.
Route colour
The route always stands out with its colour on the
map, both in daytime and in night colour mode. The
active leg of the route is always displayed in a brighter
shade than the inactive (upcoming) legs.
Active leg of the route
The section of the route on which you are driving.
If you have not added any waypoints (only a
destination), the entire route is the active leg. If you
have added waypoints, the active leg is the part of the
route from your current location to the next route point
(the next waypoint, or the destination if there are no
more waypoints to reach).
Inactive legs of the route

Excluding a road type is a preference. It does not necessarily mean
total prohibition. If your destination can only be accessed using some

necessary. In this case a warning icon will be shown on the Route
Information screen, and the part of the route not matching your

10 Glossary
2D/3D GPS reception
The GPS receiver uses satellite signals to calculate its (your) position and needs at least four signals
to give a three-dimensional position, including elevation. Because the satellites are moving and
because objects can block the signals, your GPS device might not receive four signals. If three
satellites are available, the receiver can calculate the horizontal GPS position but the accuracy is
lower and the GPS device does not give you elevation data: only 2D reception is possible.
Active route
The currently navigated route. You can save and load routes in Alpine Navigation Software, but only
one route can be active at any given time, and it is always active until you delete it, reach your
destination or you quit Alpine Navigation Software. See also: Route.

City Centre
The City Centre is not the geometric centre of the settlement but an arbitrary point the map creators
have chosen. In towns and villages, it is usually the most important intersection; in larger cities, it is an
important intersection.
GPS accuracy
Several factors have impact on the deviation between your real position and the one given by the
GPS device. For example, signal delay in the ionosphere or reflecting objects near the GPS device
have a different and varying impact on how accurately the GPS device can calculate your position.
Map
3
1
Alpine Navigation Software works with digital maps which are not simply the computerised versions of
traditional paper maps. Similarly to the paper road maps, the 2D mode of digital maps show you
streets, roads, and elevation is also shown by colours.
In 3D mode, you can see the altitude differences, for example valleys and mountains, elevated roads,
and in selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed.
You can use digital maps interactively: you can zoom in and out (increase or decrease the scale), you
can tilt them up and down, and rotate them left and right. In GPS-supported navigation, digital maps
facilitate route planning.
North-up map orientation
In North-up mode the map is rotated so its top always faces North. This is the orientation in 2D Northup view mode. See also: Track-up map orientation.
76
Autogood products internet store http://130.com.ua
PMD-B200P Version 2.0 Owner’s Manual
Route
A series of destinations to be reached one after the other. A simple route contains one start point and
only one destination. Multi-point routes contain one or more waypoints (intermediate destinations).
The last route point is the final destination and the route is cut into different legs (from one destination
to the next).
Scheme
Alpine Navigation Software comes with different colour schemes for the map for daytime or night use.
Schemes are custom graphic settings for the map and they can have different colours for streets,
blocks or surface waters in 2D and 3D modes, and they display shades or shadows in different ways
in 3D mode.
One daytime scheme and one night scheme is always selected. Alpine Navigation Software uses
them when it switches from day to night and back.

Track-up map orientation
In Track-up mode the map is rotated so its top always points in the current driving direction. This is
the default orientation in 3D map view mode. See also: North-up map orientation.
Road Safety Camera
A special POI type for speed cameras and red light cameras. Different data sources are available,
and you can also mark the position of a Road Safety Camera on the map.

You can configure Alpine Navigation Software to warn you when you approach one of these cameras.
Detecting the location of Road Safety Cameras is prohibited in certain countries. It is the sole
responsibility of the driver to check whether this feature can be used during the trip.

Blown fuse ➔ Replace with a fuse of the prescribed rating (2A glass-type fuse located in the head of
the cigarette lighter adapter).
Unit does not work after removing from cradle or dock
Make sure the battery is fully charged. Unit does not charge in cradle or dock while the ignition is
turned off.
Low RDS-TMC signal
In order to improve the RDS Traffic signal strength, you may need to separate the RDS antenna away
from the power cord on the Cradle. Carefully follow these instructions:
➔
➔
➔
➔
➔
Power off the unit and unplug the Cigarette Lighter Charger.
Identify the RDS antenna. It is the thin, black, insulated wire that runs the full length of the
thicker power cord.
Carefully cut the thin RDS antenna at the point where it enters the connector that attaches it to
the Cigarette Lighter Charger. Be careful ONLY to cut the antenna, not the larger main
power cable.
Slowly peel the antenna away from the power cord to leave about 130 cm of the antenna
separated and hanging free.
Place antenna on the vehicle dashboard or for best results, mount the antenna to the
windshield.
