Safety note
• If you attach the vacuum disk on the glass for a long period of
time, the pressure in the disk slowly reduces and the vacuum disk
may fall off.
• The Navigator holder may fall off at a sudden stop, thus causing a
dangerous situation. We recommend it should be installed close to
the dashboard so it can be supported properly.
• Applying too much force to adjust while the connecting arm is
tightly fixed, may deform the rubber disk connecting all the
components.
• If the holder falls off, please follow the instructions again to
reinstall and use it.
• Please note that if the product is damaged due to user negligence,
it cannot be returned or refunded.
Winter precaution
• The vacuum disk can easily come off the glass due to
differences in temperature between inside and outside the
windscreen.
Caution : Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
Summer precautions
• The vacuum disk can easily come off the glass due to
difference in temperature between inside and outside of the
windscreen.
• Remove the vacuum disk and store it separately when parking for
a long period of time.
• The built-in battery may be damaged when kept under direct
sunlight in the car for a long period of time due to internal
temperature rise.
Separate the unit and store it in a cool place.
A temperature rise can reduce the battery life span or cause an
explosion.

Safety note
• Never leave your unit/accessories (including windshield mount, car
charger etc) visible in an unattended vehicle, since it’s an easy
target for thieves.
• Back up your data using our provided software in the CD.
• In order to protect the screen and the unit, always store it in the
carry case.
• Do not use the memory card (SD card) with any other devices
since the memory card could be damaged.
• The unit has to be outdoors to locate the current position from
satellite. It could take few minutes to locate your position when you
start it for the first time.
If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure there aren’t any tall
trees or buildings around you.
• When installing the unit, make sure that it does not block the view
on the windscreen.
Make sure that unit does not interfere with the safety operations of
the vehicle when installed. Eg. Deployment of air bags or other
safety equipments.
• The unit could require the external antenna kit if the vehicle has
the heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield which may
prevent the unit from locating the current position.
The external antenna kit is available as an optional accessory.
• The instructions are not 100% correct, so only use it to aid you
finding the destination.
Map data is updated annually, so it can be different to the actual
road if there are changes during that period.
• The unit is designed to provide you with route suggestions, so it
does not reflect road conditions, traffic congestion, weather
conditions or other factors that may affect safety or timing while
driving.

Connecting devices
When Installing the antenna inside the vehicle
(on the dashboard or shelf)
Affix the external GPS antenna on as level a surface
as possible where the external GPS antenna faces
outside the window. (The GPS antenna is fastened
with double-sided tape.)
• Make sure the surface is free of moisture, dust,
grime, oil, etc., before affixing the sheet.
• The double-sided tape contains a strong adhesive
and may leave a mark on the dashboard if
removed.
• Some vehicles use window glass that does not
allow signals from GPS satellites to pass through.
On such vehicles, install the GPS antenna on the
outside of the vehicle.
When installing the antenna outside the
vehicle (on the body)
Place the external GPS antenna in a position as level
as possible, such as on the roof or trunk lid.
(The GPS antenna is fastened with a magnet.)
When routing the lead in from the top of the door
Make a U-shaped loop in the lead on the outside to
prevent rainwater from flowing along the lead into the
interior of the vehicle.
(The GPS antenna is fastened with a magnet.)

(It contains important data for navigation. Deleting this data will prevent the
Navigator from operating correctly.)
Picture format
• JPG: Image file size should be less than 1600 MP (megapixels).
• BMP: Image file size should be less than 500 MP (megapixels).
Cannot identify the current location. (GPS not receiving)
GPS cannot be used indoors and must be connected to the power with ACC to
a vehicle in a location where the sky can be seen well.
When initially connecting the GPS, it usually takes about 10 minutes to operate
normally, but the connection speed can differ depending on the weather
condition, and surrounding obstacles.
If the GPS connection is unstable for a long period of time, try the following.
• Check if the power is connected to the product.
• Check if the back of the GPS product is in a location where the sky can be
seen well.
• If there are high buildings or if you are under a tree, move to a location where
there aren’t any obstacles.
• Check the GPS receiving condition from the GPS menu.

Troubleshooting
Cannot hear the voice guide.
You can hear the voice guide when you select “Guidance” in “Setup”.
But during actual driving, the voice guide is not heard.
If the volume is too low, adjust the volume on the right unit.
Cannot see the map.
This is when you cannot see the map even when you have executed the
navigation menu.
This happens when the data within the memory is damaged. Delete all the
data within the memory and reinstall the data.
If the problem persists after the installation, contact the Customer Service
Centre.
Map data and dangerous area information are not updated.
You must periodically update the map data.
Refer to the homepage for details on how to update the data.
The path guide can be different from the actual path.

When the road is closely parallel.
When the splitting road angle is very small.
When there is an adjacent road when turning.
When driving on a road that is narrowing fast.
When driving through the mountain or where the road is too curvy.
When the starting, passing and arriving locations are too close within 10 km.
When you have set the starting, passing or arriving location more than 1 km
away from the road.
• When driving through a tunnel.
• When driving between high buildings.
There is a difference between the driving road and the road
on the map in the product.
Even though GPS is usually very accurate, it has an error range.
When GPS receiver is installed, there can be an error of about 5 to 15m. But
for newly constructed roads, the problem could be from the data update to the
map.

Troubleshooting
What is GPS?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system
made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S.
Department of Defence. GPS was originally intended for military applications,
but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.
GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.

Map matching
The GPS used by this Mobile Navigation System is susceptible to certain
errors. Their calculations may on occasion place you in a location on the map
where no road exists. In this situation, the processing system
understands that vehicles travel only on roads, and is able to correct your
position by adjusting it to a near road. This is called map matching.
With map matching.
With no map matching.
