The Scroll buttons let you move up or down the list of address items, such as
town or street names.
The Hide/Display Keyboard toggle button lets you extend or shorten the address
list by hiding or displaying the keyboard. Note: When the number of address
search results fit on a single screen, the keyboard is automatically hidden,
displaying the address list only. If the search results do not display the desired

You can change your address search method by tapping the Mode button to select from a
variety of address formats, as described in Address Modes.
Note: If the entered characters are not found at the beginning of the name in the Address list,
the Smart Search System automatically searches for the entered characters throughout the
entire list, for example, in the middle or the end of the name. Destinator lets you search for
city and street names without having special characters, such as umlauts or accent marks,
which are used in many European languages.

historical sites, or other locations.
Search Radius
Enter the location distance to search for a designated place. For
example, if you enter 5 km, Destinator only searches within a five
kilometre radius.
When you select a large search radius, you risk the chance of
finding too many locations, which makes it harder to find the place
that you are searching for. It is best to start with a small search
radius size, and then increase the radius size if necessary.
Note: if you don’t specify a search radius, Destinator searches the

Traffic Information (Optional)
What is the Traffic Message Channel?
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System
(RDS) used for broadcasting real-time traffic and weather information. Data messages are
received silently, decoded, and delivered to a TMC-enabled navigation system that can
offer dynamic route guidance – alerting the driver to a problem on the planned route and
calculating an alternative route to avoid the incident.
Coverage of the Service
TMC Services cover nearly all of Western Europe. Each service is transmitted by a national,
regional, or local broadcaster. TMC Service provides traffic information for monitored roads
only, motorways and main roads. TMC radio transmissions reception can change from area
to area, depending on weather conditions, static electricity, power lines, and other natural or
man-made conditions.
Disclaimer
Destinator Technologies is not responsible for any damage caused by an accident due
to unreliable TMC radio transmissions by national, regional, or local broadcasters caused
by TMC service restrictions, or by natural and man-made conditions that prevent real-time
traffic and weather information from being delivered to the TMC-enabled navigation system.
Destinator Technologies is not responsible for the quality or accuracy of the events
broadcast and the method by which they are displayed.
TMC Antenna Installation
Installing the TMC Antenna:
57
1. Place the wired antennas horizontally in the car using the rubber stickers provided.
It is recommended that the antenna be attached to the windscreen. Please note
that some car models (especially French) use coated windscreen glass and placing
the radio antenna on other windows is therefore recommended on these cars.
2. The TMC system automatically locates the frequency of the closest radio station
and recommends an alternate route when traffic events (such as congestion or an
accident) are detected. For more information, please refer to the user manual.
3. Other traffic events – such as General Information, Roadworks and Weather – are
also monitored to let the user avoid these events manually.
Destinator Traffic Service
Destinator provides the following traffic service:
1. The Destinator Traffic Engine monitors the events relevant to your route only.
2. Destinator automatically calculates the best alternative route.
3. Every 5 minutes, Destinator re-evaluates the traffic conditions and route
accordingly.
4. For a list of supported receivers, please see the user manual.
5. Destinator TrafficSam lets you access the best traffic services in Europe with one
simple licence. You can enjoy the following professional services:
58
• In Germany, TMC Pro powered by T-Systems Traffic in Germany.
• In France, the nationwide coverage of Michelin Traffic services.
• In the United Kingdom, Destinator traffic service powered by TrafficMaster.
6. No additional registration or activation is required. Simply use your device in the way
you are used to.
Traffic Info Alert
Traffic (TMC) messages are national and regional FM radio broadcasts that are used to inform
drivers of traffic, weather, and other driving conditions, as shown below.
The Traffic Alert icon appears each time a traffic event is encountered. The alert description is
displayed in the TMC Inbox screen, which can be opened by tapping on the Traffic Alert icon.
Note: Some car models (especially French)
use coated windscreen glass, and placing
the radio antenna on other windows is
therefore recommended on these cars. An
alternative solution is to install an Antenna
Splitter that lets you use your usual radio
antenna. For more information about the
Antenna Splitter, please go to http://www.
gns-gmbh.com
TMC information is received by your TMCenabled GPS receiver and monitored by
your software. Destinator can automatically
reroute your travel to avoid areas that TMC
indicates are troublesome to drivers. For
instance, if there is a storm or accident
in your vicinity, your route would be
recalculated to avoid the problem.
59
Note: Please go to http://www.tmcforum.com for information about European countries that
provide TMC service. A TMC receiver is required to receive TMC broadcasts.
From the Options menu, select the Traffic Info button, which opens the TMC inbox, and
displays traffic reports. You can select a traffic report and click Next to show a map of the
affected road. If you click the Avoid button, Destinator recalculates your route. Note that if
the event was avoided, the Show Map screen displays the Allow button to recalculate to that
previously avoided route section.
All TMC messages are delivered to the TMC Inbox, but only messages relating the direct
route and a 200 metre radius are displayed. The radius is set to 160 kilometres when no
route has been selected.
Note: It is strongly recommended that you let Destinator automatically scan and lock onto
the TMC stations and do not manually search for a TMC station.
You can use the following buttons to go to a different radio frequency:
60
You can use the following buttons to go to a different radio frequency:
Lets you search for a traffic channel at a lower frequency. When a station
is located, Destinator checks for TMC data. If there is no TMC data for this
station, Destinator continues to scan until a radio station with TMC data is
located.
Lets you make minimal (0.1) steps toward a lower frequency to bring in the
channel.
Lets you make minimal (0.1) steps toward a higher frequency to bring in the
channel.
Lets you scan for a traffic channel with TMC data at a higher frequency.
TMC Options
You can tap the Options button The Traffic Information Options dialogue box is displayed, as
shown below.
61
You must configure the Traffic Message Channel (TMC) be defining the following settings:
When an
event occurs:
Search for
TMC Stations:
Test TMC
You can select either: Automatically - Destinator automatically
recalculates the route to avoid a road with adverse traffic conditions
– traffic jam or accident only. Manual - You can manually select the
TMC event from the inbox and tap the Avoid button from the Show
Map screen.
Automatically - Destinator automatically scans the FM radio
frequencies until a TMC station is found. Should you lose the station
frequency, Destinator will automatically scan for a new TMC station.
Manual - You can use the frequency keys to scan for a TMC station
[Not advised].
When you tap this button, Destinator expands the search radius for
to the “Whole Map” for one minute, switches automatically to the
TMC Inbox screen and displays a test message called “Testing TMC
Service”. After one minute, Destinator reverts to the route and the 200
metre radius.”
If you do not receive a message after tapping this button, please
check in the following sequence: The TMC receiver is locked on to
a TMC station. If not, reconnect your TMC receiver. If you see the
tuner scanning but not locking on to a TMC station, try to change your
position and check that your antenna is vertical. Depending on your
location, you might not have TMC coverage. Check that you are using
the map of the country that you are currently travelling in.
TMC Pro
62
For Destinator use in Germany only - It is highly recommended to
keep the TMC Pro checkbox selected. TMC Pro provides highly
accurate TMC data over a broad area.
