2.1
Operating mode of your navigation system
MEDION-Navigator
The time of complicated and frustrating inquiries on the right way
in folded maps is over. From now on MEDION-Navigator, your
navigation system, will guide you, based on satellite information,
quickly and safely to your destination.
GPS-based
navigation
The Global Positioning System (GPS) has originally been
developed in the 70ies, as a weapon guidance system for the
American forces.
The GPS is based on 24 satellites, which are in orbit round the
earth and which are permanently emitting signals. The GPS
receiver receives these signals and calculates, based on the
runtime of the signals, his distance from the respective satellites.
This information serves for calculation your current geographic
position.
The signals of at least three satellites are needed to determine
the longitude and the latitude. With the signals of at least four
satellites the elevation may be calculated, too. The determination
has an accuracy of about 3 yards.
Operating mode of
the GPS
The delivered maps contain the geographic coordinates of the
points of interest, streets and towns they represent. Thus the
navigation system can calculate a route from a given start point
to a given destination point.
In case your navigation system receives the signals of at least
three satellites it may determine your current position and
represent it on the map. This position may then serve as start
point for navigation purposes. As the determination and
representation of your position is carried out once a second, you
may watch your movements on the map.

Indicating destinations
Basic principle of
navigation
The indication of destinations is the basis of navigation
respectively of itinerary planning. In this chapter, you will learn
about the possibilities to indicate and manage destinations in
MEDION-Navigator.
For details on destination management, please refer to
“Navigation and Itinerary planning”, page 57.
Indicating a
destination
In MEDION-Navigator there are several possibilities to enter or
to select destinations:
Via a manual address entry, see page 33.
Via the Points of Interest function, see page 35.
By indication on the map, see page 39.
By selection from the Saved destinations list, see page 41.
By selection from the Recent destinations list, see page 43.
Via the Home icon, see page 45.
Destination screen

"She" or "she".
You may then select the correct entry or enter more letters to
shorten the results list.
Entries
You may carry out all entries with your finger on the mobile
phone software keyboard.
You need not enter special characters when entering a

4.4.3
Blocking a route section
Blocking a route
section manually
You may block a route section manually in order to evade it.
Manual blocking forces a recalculation of the route.
Presume that you are driving on a motorway and a radio
message announces a traffic jam of 4 miles near your current
position. With the “Block route sections” function you may
instruct the navigation system to evade the announced traffic
jam.
A manual blocking is only valid for the current navigation
process. The respective route section will be unblocked for the
next navigation or when you restart the software.
Blocking a route
section…

the map is being displayed.
1. Tap the Additional functions icon.
2. Tap Block road.
The BLOCKING screen opens.
3. Enter how many miles (from your current position on) you
want to block.
4. Tap OK.
This forces a recalculation of the route. The indicated route
section will be evaded. On the map, it will be highlighted on
red.
Unblocking a route
section
1. Tap the Additional functions icon.
2. Tap Unblock.
The route section is now unblocked. The navigation system
uses the route, which had been calculated originally.

Glossary
COM-port
A COM port is a connector to a communications interface, usually
the serial port. The ports are numbered by a number behind
“COM”. A communications interface is designed to connect
hardware like a mouse or a GPS receiver.
GMT
GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is the mean solar time at the Royal
Greenwich Observatory in Greenwich near London, England,
which by convention is at 0 degrees geographic longitude.
Theoretically, noon Greenwich Mean Time is the moment when
the Sun crosses the Greenwich meridian (and reaches its highest
point in the sky in Greenwich). Up to 1972, GMT was the global
time standard. Because of the Earth's uneven speed in its elliptic
orbit, GMT has been replaced by UTC (Universal Time
Coordinated) which is an ultra stable time standard based on
atomic clocks.
GPS
The GPS (Global Positioning System) is based on 24 satellites,
which are in orbit round the earth. They are permanently
emitting the time and their current position. The GPS receiver
receives this information and calculates the longitude and the
latitude of its own current position.
The signals of at least three satellites are needed to determine
the longitude and the latitude. With the signals of at least four
satellites the elevation may be calculated, too. The determination
has an accuracy of about 3 yards.
HDOP
The Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) indicates the quality
of position determination. Theoretically any value from 0 to 50 is
possible. The smaller the value is, the more accurate is the
position determination (value 0 = no deviation from the actual
position). Values up to 8 are convenient for street navigation.
Points of Interest
Points of Interest are covered by the map and may be displayed
on it. Harbours, airports, restaurants, hotels, petrol stations,
public buildings, and others belong to the Point of Interest. You
may determine Point of Interest as itinerary points for navigation
purposes.
