destination. The driver should enter data or program the unit only when the vehicle is stopped.
Only a vehicle passenger should enter data or program the unit while the vehicle is moving.
•
It is your responsibility to comply with all traffic laws.
•
Every attempt is made to ensure that the database is accurate. However, roadways, points of
interest (POIs), and business and service locations may change over time. The database does not
include, analyze, process, consider, or reflect any of the following: legal restrictions (such as
vehicular type, weight, height, width, load and speed restrictions); road slope or grade; bridge
height, width, weight, or other limits; population density; neighborhood quality or safety;
availability or proximity of law enforcement, emergency rescue, medical, or other assistance;
construction work zones or hazards; road or lane closures; road, traffic, or traffic facilities’ safety
or condition; weather conditions; pavement characteristics or conditions; special events; traffic
congestion. It is your responsibility to disregard any unsafe, hazardous, or illegal route
suggestions.
•
Keep the Magellan RoadMate safe from extreme temperature conditions. For example, do not
leave it exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time.
•
Take care when mounting the unit in your vehicle, whether using the windshield mount or other
mount or accessories, that it does not obstruct the driver's view of the road, interfere with the
operation of the vehicle's safety devices such as air bags, or present a hazard to occupants of the
vehicle should the unit be dislodged while driving. You assume the risks associated with damage
to your vehicle or vehicle occupants as the result of your choices in mounting the unit.

About Satellite Navigation
Global satellite navigation is an exciting technology, providing enhanced productivity and accuracy in a vast number of
industries. It adds a new level of enjoyment and safety to a wide range of navigation, sports, and recreational activities.
A Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is a network of satellites that transmit high-frequency radio signals containing
time and distance data that can be picked up by a receiver, allowing users to pinpoint their precise locations anywhere
around the globe.
There are two Global Navigation Satellite Systems in operation: the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian
GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS). These systems are constantly being upgraded to meet higher standards of
reliability. A third GNSS named GALILEO, after the Italian astronomer of the early 1600s, is being developed in Europe
specifically to provide a higher standard of integrity and reliability, required to ensure the safety of lives during transport by
air, land and sea, without the use of additional augmentation systems.
While the GPS and GLONASS satellite networks are being developed to achieve maximum performance, Satellite-Based
Augmentation Systems (SBAS) have been established to provide improved accuracy. SBAS provides differential signal
corrections for GPS and GLONASS transmissions with the use of ground stations and geostationary satellites in specific
regions. This is GNSS-1, the first phase in establishing the required integrity for high-precision satellite navigation.
GNSS-2 requires the launching of new satellites into orbit and a complete upgrade of the existing satellite systems. This
second phase is already well underway. GALILEO, scheduled to begin service in 2008, is being developed to meet the
standards of GNSS-2 for rapid and reliable, certified precision positioning.
How Satellite Navigation Works
Global navigation satellites continuously transmit time and distance information as they orbit Earth in a precise formation.
Navigation satellite receivers use this information to calculate an exact location through triangulation. Every point on Earth is
identified by two sets of numbers called coordinates. These coordinates represent the exact point where a horizontal line,
known as latitude, crosses a vertical line, known as longitude. The receiver locks on to at least three satellites and uses the
information received to determine the coordinates of the receiving device.
By comparing the time the signals were transmitted from the satellites and the time they were recorded, the receiver
calculates how far away each satellite is. The distance of the receiver from three or more satellites reveals its position on the
surface of the planet. With these distance measurements, the receiver might also calculate speed, bearing, trip time,
distance to destination, altitude, and more.
The satellite-navigation device may display its position as longitude/latitude, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), Military
Grid (MG), or simply as a point on an electronic map. Many Thales Navigation receivers provide comprehensive mapping
data, making satellite navigation an easy tool to enhance your recreational and industrial activities.
Line of Sight
Satellite-navigation receivers operate by line of sight with global-positioning satellites. This means that at least three
satellites must be in “view” of a receiver in order to calculate longitude and latitude. A fourth satellite must also be within
line of sight to calculate altitude. On average, eight satellites are continuously within line of sight of every position on Earth;
the more satellites in view, the more accurate the positioning.
Though the radio signals of navigation satellites will pass through clouds, glass, plastic, and other lightweight materials,
satellite-navigation receivers will not work underground or in other enclosed spaces.
Precision
On average, a satellite-navigation receiver is accurate to within 15 meters. Thales Navigation employs several technologies to
increase the accuracy of their professional and Magellan®-branded receivers. An accuracy of 3 meters or better is achieved
using correction signals from satellite navigation-augmentation systems. In the U.S., an accuracy of 3 meters is achieved
1
Information
using signal corrections from a network of ground stations and fixed-position satellites known as WAAS (Wide-Area
Augmentation System). Throughout Europe a similar system, EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System),
provides the same accuracy. In Asia, satellite navigation-signal correction is provided by MSAS (Multi-functional Transport
Satellite-Based Augmentation System). Other ways to increase the accuracy of satellite navigation include the use of DGPS
(Differential Global-Positioning System); ground relay stations, set at known positions, transmit corrected satellite-navigation
signals. Various methods and applications of DGPS can increase satellite-navigation accuracy from a few meters to within a
few millimeters. Using DGPS requires a differential-beacon receiver and antennae in addition to a satellite-navigation
device. Accuracy can also be increased using an RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) satellite-navigation system. This is a receiver
capable of transmitting a phase-corrected signal from a known position to one or more rover receivers.
A number of positioning errors can occur, limiting accuracy to within 15 to 25 meters. These errors are monitored and
compensated for in a number of ways:
Orbiting errors -- Occasionally, a satellite's reported position does not match its actual trajectory. In the U.S., the
Department of Defense continuously monitors each satellite, making orbital corrections with on-board booster rockets.
Poor geometry -- If all of the satellites within line of sight of a receiver are clustered closely together, or lined up relative to
the position of the receiver, the geometric calculations necessary for triangulating a position become difficult and less
reliable. The use of differential-correction signals from satellite-based augmentation systems or DGPS can compensate for
both orbital errors and poor geometry.
Multipath signals -- Signals may be reflected off tall buildings or other obstructions before reaching the receiver, increasing
the distance a signal travels and reducing accuracy.
Thales Navigation receivers make a number of complex mathematical calculations to effectively compensate for other
potential errors in positioning:
Atmospheric delay -- Satellite-navigation signals slow as they pass through Earth's atmosphere. Thales Navigation receivers
calculate the average delay in nanoseconds to compensate.
Clock errors -- The clock built into a receiver is not as accurate as the atomic clock on a navigation satellite, which is
accurate to one second every million years. Each Thales Navigation receiver compensates for time differentials by comparing
the time signals of several satellites and adjusting its calculations and its clock to match.
A Word on the Safe Usage of GPS Maps
Just like paper maps, maps on GPS devices vary greatly in terms of information included and visual presentation. Whether
topographical maps, roadmaps or marine charts, each map and the data it presents is designed for a specific purpose. For
example, marine charts will often present only a minimal representation of roadways and are not a substitute for street maps.
Topographic maps usually provide minimal detail about bodies of water and do not contain marine navigational markers.
Maps also vary widely in scale: the smaller the scale, the more detailed the map. Therefore, when using GPS maps (just as
with paper maps) it is important to consider what type of map you are using in your explorations and to use common sense.
From Source to Destination
Thales Navigation, maker of Magellan GPS products, is not a cartography company. We do not create the maps that are used
on our GPS devices. We seek to acquire map data from the best public and private sources available at the time of
publication. Thales Navigation licenses* topographical maps, roadmaps, marine charts and points of interest (POI) data
from commercial and governmental cartographic sources that provide raw map data. Thales Navigation processes and
compresses the raw data into a format that makes it presentable and manageable to work on our GPS devices. And to ensure
that our map data is as robust as possible, data from multiple sources are often combined to provide a better user experience
for our customers. This processing does not alter the landforms, coordinates or other spatial data that comes in the raw data.
The accuracy of the maps is fundamentally dependent on the source data used to create them. Map data changes frequently
due to both natural and man-made causes. As a result, governmental and commercial cartography companies must
2
Information
continuously review, correct, and improve upon their map data. We release new versions of our maps on a regular basis to
reflect these changes.
After processing the data, we test the compatibility of the map with our GPS devices to ensure that the products we release
work properly on our GPS devices. We also beta-test our products to get customer feedback prior to release.
GPS Maps and Your Safety
Remember, your GPS device is an aid to navigation. It must be used with common sense, and it is important that users
interpret GPS map data with a critical eye. Landscapes and roads change or may be impassable, trees and tall buildings can
obscure GPS signals, and your GPS device may not always reflect the complete picture. When using GPS, you must combine
the information provided by your GPS map with your relevant local knowledge, road signage, buoys, depth soundings and
changing local conditions to generate a complete understanding of your situation.
It is your responsibility to ensure compliance to all traffic laws, including pedestrian observance of crosswalks, and to use
good judgment while operating the Magellan GPS receiver. Safety must be your primary concern. The Magellan GPS receiver
must not be used while engaged in any activity requiring the user's full attention to the environment. For instance, the
Magellan GPS receiver should be operated only by vehicle passengers or by the driver when the vehicle has come to a
complete stop. The driver must not attempt to view the display while driving. A climber must not attempt to view the display
while negotiating treacherous terrain. Disregard any unsafe, hazardous or illegal route suggestions.
Magellan maps do not include, analyze, process, consider or reflect any of the following: legal restrictions (such as weight,
height, width, load and speed restrictions); road slope or grade; bridge height, width, weight or other limits; population
density; neighborhood quality or safety; availability or proximity of law enforcement, emergency rescue, medical or other
assistance; construction work zones or hazards; road, sidewalk, or waterway closures or conditions; weather conditions;
pavement characteristics or conditions; special events; traffic congestion; time of day.
*Thales Navigation licenses map data from governmental sources such as, but not limited to, U.S. Geological Survey
(USGS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA-NOS) and the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS).
Thales Navigation also licenses map data from commercial cartography companies such as Navigation Technologies,
Navionics, DMTI and C-Map.

POI Manager
Overview
The Magellan RoadMate 760 comes with Magellan RoadMate POI Manager Software. This allows you to add custom POIs to
your Magellan RoadMate. You can add things such as friends’ houses and other favorite places that are not in the installed
database. POIs are easier to search for than street addresses and show up on the Map screen. The POI Manager adds POIs
based on Latitude, Longitude, and a name. Other information such as altitude and a description are optional.
Latitude
Latitude can be expressed by dividing Earth into horizontal segments totalling 180 degrees. Starting at the Equator, or zero
degrees Latitude, lines (or Parallels) are drawn in 10-degree increments 90 degrees to the north and 90 degrees to the
south. If your location is below the Equator, you are at a South Latitude.

Longitude
Conversely, longitude lines can be expressed by dividing Earth into vertical segments totalling 360 degrees. Starting at the
Prime Meridian (which is The Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England), or zero degrees Longitude, lines are drawn in 10degree increments 180 degrees to the West and 180 degrees to the East. If your location is on the western hemisphere, you
are at a West Longitude.

East Longitude
Additionally, to narrow down your location further, each 10-degree segment is divided into 60 smaller segments called
minutes and, still further, each minute is divided into 60 segments called seconds.
To express this in coordinates, the city of Los Angeles is located at 34° (degrees) 03’ (minutes) and 08 (seconds) North of
the Equator, and 118° (degrees) 14’ (minutes) and 42 (seconds) West of the Prime Meridian.
10
POI Manager
Altitude
Each location also must have an Altitude. Altitude is expressed by how far the point is above or below the level of the ocean,
or Sea Level. For example, Los Angeles, California is about 300 feet above sea level. Death Valley, California is about 270
feet below sea level.

What Is QuickSpell?
The Magellan RoadMate uses QuickSpell technology to provide you with the fastest method possible to enter characters.
QuickSpell eliminates the possibility of a misspelled word or looking for a city or street that is not in the loaded database. As
you begin entering characters, the QuickSpell feature of the Magellan RoadMate dims out those characters which that are
not available, thereby speeding up the process of entering data.
Example:
Suppose that you need to input the name of a city--in this case, San Francisco.
Select “S”.
Select “A”.
Select “N”.
21
Basic Operation
Select the spacebar.
When enough characters have been entered, the Magellan RoadMate will automatically
display the list of cities; or, if you feel that enough characters have been entered, select OK.
Use the Navigation key to scroll the list up or down and select “San Francisco, CA” from
the list.
If the list is still too long, press Cancel to return to the keyboard and continue entering
characters. The list of items found in the database is limited to 100 items. When over 100
items have been found, “Matches: > 100” will be displayed shown in the bottom right

using speed limits and other information in the database. Other factors, such as traffic
conditions, cannot be used in the calculation of shortest time.
Shortest Distance: This option calculates the route using the most direct route to the
destination. This route may not be the fastest due to lower speed limits, left turns or other
factors.
