XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM
Preface
The XNAV3550 combines state-of-the-art turn-by-turn navigation with a built-in multimedia
player. Before operating, take a few minutes to review the safety and operating instructions in this Quick Start Guide so you can quickly and safely become familiar with its many features.
This Quick Start Guide explains the system functions, and provides details on:
• Safety information
• Control locations
• Setting up the unit
• Multimedia functions • Basic navigation functions
• System preferences
For detailed navigation functions and operation, please visit our website at www.dualav.com.
IMPORTANT NOTES
This unit includes an internal lithium-polymer battery, and should be fully charged prior to
first operation. Refer to page 6 to charge the unit for first time use.
Illustrations used throughout this manual may differ from the actual device.
When turned on for the first time (or if the unit has been idle for several days, or been moved
more than 250 miles while turned off), it can take several minutes to acquire a GPS signal.
If no GPS signals are received after several minutes, please reset the GPS in the SETTINGS
menu. Refer to page 11 for more details.

Safety Information and Precautions
WARNING! PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. FAILURE
TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW MAY INCREASE YOUR RISK OF COLLISION,
PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
The warning screen is displayed each time the Navi Icon is selected as a reminder to make
use of the system’s navigational aids in a safe manner. Before using the XNAV3550, read this
entire Quick Start Guide. Make sure that you are familiar with the features and know how to
operate the system.
Proper use of the XNAV3550 includes the following guidelines: The navigation system is not
a substitute for your personal judgment. The route suggestions should never supersede any
local traffic regulation or your personal judgment and /or knowledge of safe driving practices.
Prior to completing any maneuvers suggested by your navigation system (for example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that you can legally and safely complete the maneuver. Do not
follow route suggestions if they direct you to perform an unsafe or illegal maneuver, would
place you in an unsafe situation, or would route you into an area that you consider unsafe.
Glance at the screen only when necessary and safe to do so. Let the voice guide you. If
prolonged viewing is necessary, pull off the road to a safe location.
The database may not include all emergency service providers. Use your own best judgment
and ask for directions in these situations. If the vehicle is in motion, only a passenger should
program the unit. The driver should not program the unit unless the vehicle is parked in a
safe location. The map database provides information on suggested routes without regard
to factors that may affect your driving experience or the time required to arrive at your
destination. For example, the system does not reflect road detours, closures or construction,
some road characteristics (e.g., road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions,
etc.), temporary traffic congestion, weather conditions, and similar factors.

XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM
Introduction to your Navigation System
As you travel, your navigation system functions as your copilot, providing turn-by-turn visual
and voice assistance to direct you to your selected destination. Because the system knows
where you are and where you want to go, it can quickly calculate step-by-step directions that
provide a route to any destination available on the included navigation map. The map includes
millions of roadway and mapping destinations, and pre-programmed point of interest (POI)
locations in several different categories. Simply enter your desired destination into your
navigation system, and its advanced intelligence does the rest.
With your navigation system, if you deviate from the planned route, the navigation system will
automatically recalculate the route to determine a new one from your current location.
The navigation system uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway
map database to calculate and display travel directions. The system’s GPS antenna receives
signals from a constellation of 24 satellites orbiting the earth and uses the strongest of
signals to determine your position within 10 ~ 200 meters (depending on circumstances). The
navigation system’s sophisticated software provides the highly accurate positioning necessary
to provide real-time, accurate, turn-by-turn route guidance.
Vehicle Position
The navigation system’s computer considers vehicle speed and heading changes, together
with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and
position on a digital map. This information is relayed to you as you proceed to your selected
destination through audible suggestions, turn symbols, and the on-screen map.
Signals from GPS satellites are used to determine the vehicle location. Three (good) or four
(best) satellites must be received to accurately determine location. The GPS reception status is
indicated by the GPS satellite indicator on the map. See the GPS indicator section on page 17
for more information.
Map and Information Database
The map database used by your navigation system was created using high-resolution aerial
and land based data collection and is stored on a memory card. This data is enhanced with
useful travel information and approximately two million points of interest locations in several
different categories, such as tourist attractions, gas stations, airports, and restaurants.
While the database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a
map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map
databases, such as turn restrictions or road names, may change over time. In addition,
points of interests, such as restaurants, hotels, and gas stations, also change over time. The
complexity of keeping this directory current means that some information may be missing or
out-of-date at times.

2. Multi function
buttons
These buttons can be used to select one of two functions. Normally, the
current function is indicated by the caption of the button.
When you tap one of these buttons, the caption switches to the other
function . This change must be confirmed by tapping another button
(normally OK or Save) before the current screen closes.
3. Data entry buttons These buttons will be referred to as entry fields. They caption either

When you tap an entry field, another screen with a software keyboard, a list, or both appear, allowing data input. Data entry must be confirmed
by tapping another button (normally OK or Save) before the screen
closes.
Lists
There are many cases where you will need to select an entry from a
list. If, for example, you have not completely entered the name of a city
before tapping OK, a list appears which contains all cities beginning
with your entry or having it in their names. The zip code of the cities
will also be indicated to allow you to choose the correct one if there is
more than one city with the same name.
One of the entries may be highlighted. This entry will be written in bold
and is placed a little more at the left than the other entries of the list.
There is often additional information associated with that entry.
At the right side of lists, there are three icons:
