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. POWER 1 XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM 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. 2 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. 3 XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM Package Contents XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM QUICK START GUIDE XNAV3550 12VDC Adapter 1GB SD Memory Card Stylus XNAV3550 VERSION 1.0 Carry Bag 4 Map Database DVD-ROM Quick Start Guide Windshield Mount XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM Control Locations Front View Rear View 1 1 4 2 2 3 5 2 2 4 1 2 3 4 5 Main Menu Button Left/Right Turn Indicators Display On/Off Zoom In Zoom Out 1 2 3 4 Left View Stylus Slot Speakers Docking Mount SD Card Slot Right View 1 2 3 1 GPS Antenna 2 Audio Out 3 Power On/Off 3 1 2 1 Volume 2 12VDC Input 5 XNAV3550 PORTABLE GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEM Getting Started Inserting an SD Card Your device has an SD card slot located in the bottom of the unit.
