Installing the hardware
Installing the PNA in the vehicle
Attention: The mounted holder must not interfere with the
driver’s attention to traffic. In case this is not possible, use the
provided adhesion plate to mount the holder somewhere else so
that safe driving is granted.
Note: You need not execute steps 1 and 2 if you want to mount
the holder on your windscreen.
Mounting the
holder...
1. Remove the lamination sheet from the adhesion plate.
2. Stick the adhesion plate at a convenient place on the
dashboard. Make sure that the surface of the dashboard is
clean and dry and press the plate forcefully on its place.
Note: Do not charge the plate for the first 24 hours in order
to grant its hold.
3. Attach the cradle of the device to the swan-neck mount.
Note: Take notice of the inscription on the swan-neck mount.
The arrow with the inscription close must show in snap-on
direction. The connection must snap on audibly.
4. Place the suction cup on the adhesion plate (or directly on the
windscreen) and press the lever on the suction cup down. The
suction cup adheres to the plate (or to the windscreen).
5. Insert the device into its holder. First place the bottom of the
device correctly, then push it backwards until it snaps into the

2.3
The basic principle of navigation
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.
Navigation with 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.
Traffic information
with TMC)
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) provides the navigation
system with the latest traffic information. An external TMC
receiver, which is connected to your PNA receives these signals
broadcasted by radio stations.
TMC Operating mode
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is based on a news
system. Traffic information is recorded continually this is done
automatically by sensors on the motorways and by the police.
This information is then forwarded to the radio stations without
delay. It is digitally coded, differentiated according to routes and
driving directions and transmitted inaudibly.
The TMC-receiver extracts the TMC data from the RDS signal and
provides the navigation software with them. Current traffic
obstructions may then be displayed.
The reported obstructions may be considered for route
calculation. In case of obstructions on the computed itinerary,
they may be used for computing an alternative route, which
evades the obstruction.
MEDION-Navigator features dynamic navigation, which is well
adapted to the current traffic situation.

Note
Important safety information
In your own interest, read the following notices and safety
information carefully before starting up your navigation system.
2.4.1 Safety information on navigation
Use of MEDION-Navigator is executed at your own risk.
Caution: To protect yourself and others from accidents please do
not operate the navigation system while driving!
Caution: You must not look at the display except when it is
absolutely safe to do so!
Caution: The road layout and the traffic signs are absolutely
prior to the instructions of the navigation system.
Caution: You must not follow the instructions of MEDIONNavigator except when the circumstances and the road traffic
regulations allow doing so. MEDION-Navigator will guide you to
your destination even when you have left your planned itinerary.
Note: We recommend effecting route planning before beginning
the journey. If you are on the road and you want to establish a
new itinerary, please drive to the next parking site!
Note: If you have not understood the instructions or if you are
not sure about what to do next you may quickly refer to the map
or arrow view of your navigation system.

Important safety information
User's manual MEDION-Navigator 5
2.4.2
Safety information on handling the PNA
Caution: As it is neither splash proof nor waterproof, do not
expose your navigation device to water! For example, protect it
from rain, snow or hail when you are on your way by bike or on
foot.
Caution: Disconnect the navigation device from the power
supply when you are leaving the car parked for a long period of
time. Failure to do so might result in a dead battery since the
internal GPS receiver constantly consumes electricity.
Note: Do not use any harsh solvents for cleaning the PNA. A
damp, lint-free cloth is sufficient!
Note: Do not unplug by pulling the cable. This might damage the
cable!
2.4.3
Safety information on the installation in the vehicle
Caution: Do not fix the holder within the deployment zone of
airbags.
Caution: When you install the holder, please check that it may
not constitute any safety risk, even in case of an accident.

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.
POI
Point of Interest (POI). See ÎSpecial destination.
RDS
Radio Data Signal (RDS) is a service offered by broadcasting
stations. TMC information is broadcasted via RDS.
Special destination
Special destinations, also called POI (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 special destinations. You may determine
special destinations as itinerary points for navigation purposes.
TMC
Traffic Message Channel (TMC) supplies your navigation system
with the latest traffic information. A TMC module which is
available as accessory receives the signals which are broadcasted
by radio stations.
