General advice
Safety advice and important information
Before you start to install and use this navigation system, please familiarise yourself with its
various components and functions. Please also read through the safety instructions carefully
to avoid personal injury to yourself and others.
Do not expose the navigation system to high temperatures or extreme sunlight.
Temperatures over 50°C can severely damage the navigation system, especially the
lithium ion battery. The lithium ion battery can only be charged within a temperature
range of 0-45°C. Please note the safety instructions when operating the battery!
The device is not splashproof and must therefore not be exposed to moisture, as this
may result in damage.
GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based system that supports geographical
and time-related information all around the world. The system is operated and controlled by the United States of America. The USA is also responsible for the availability
and accuracy of this system. All changes to the GPS availability and accuracy as well as
other factors from the surrounding environment can influence the operation of the
navigation system. The supplier of this system does not accept any liability whatsoever
for the availability and accuracy of GPS data.
When fixing the screen onto its mount in your vehicle, please note the following: Never adjust the screen by moving the navigation system itself; instead you should adjust
the mount. Position the screen so that you are able to glance at the display quickly and
easily. The device should also be positioned in a way that prevents reflections and
glare from the screen. The screen should not be positioned so that it obstructs your
view of things that are necessary for driving the vehicle (e.g. the view of the road or
the vehicle's instruments) or the safety systems in your vehicle.
The navigation system does not take the relative safety of the suggested routes into
consideration. Road closures, roadworks, height and weight restrictions, traffic and
weather conditions or other factors that can influence the safety and the journey time
of the route are not taken into consideration for the suggested routes. Use your own
judgement to check the suitability of the suggested routes. If required, use the
“Change Route” function to calculate alternatives to the original route. Alternatively
take the road you prefer and the software will automatically perform a re-routing
(i.e. calculate a new route based on your new position).
In certain areas, one-way streets, turning restrictions and no entry signs (e.g. pedestrian zones) cannot be accounted for. In such situations, pay particular attention to road
signs and applicable road traffic regulations.
If you need the help of the emergency services (police, fire, ambulance, etc.), do not
rely exclusively on the navigation system. Act at your own discretion and possibilities
in order to find help in such situations.
Please ensure that every person intending to use the navigation system reads this safety information and the recommendations for operating the system beforehand.

Setup and installation
Getting started
Before you can switch on the navigation
system for the first time, you must insert
the battery. This is carried out with the following steps:
• Open the battery compartment.
• Push the battery into the battery compartment with the contacts facing
downwards. You can now close the battery compartment.
• Connect the navigation system to the
12 V power supply in your vehicle. The
battery will now start to charge. It takes
approx. 8 hours to fully charge the battery.
The battery life without external power
supply is approx. 5 hours for navigation
and approx. 2 hours for DVB-T with the
PN 4000 (approx. 6 hours for navigation
and approx. 4 hours for DVB-T with the
PN 6000). The battery life also depends
on the display brightness you have selected.
• Insert the supplied SD card containing
the maps into the SD card slot.
With an active cradle you can use the
car battery/keyswitch connection in combination with the optional car connectivity
cable. The navigation device will automatically switch on or off by turning the car key
in the ignition. Once the navigation device is inserted in the active cradle and the
ignition is switched on, the battery is automatically charged.
When using a passive cradle:
• You must turn the device on and off using the power button.
• You can charge the battery by using the cigarette lighter cable
The battery must only be charged if someone is monitoring the device. Do not open
the battery by force as this may release corrosive acid. Damaged batteries or batteries
that are past their expiry date must no longer be used and should be disposed of in a
safe and suitable way.
Setup and installation

Installation
•
•
•
Before attaching the cradle to the windscreen, clean the relevant windscreen area as
well as the cradle's suction pad, and ensure they are free from grease and dust.
Differences between daytime and nighttime temperatures and/or humidity and moisture may cause the vacuum under the suction cup to disintegrate. Therefore you should
attach the navigation system so that it will not sustain damage if it falls off the windscreen. As a precautionary measure, you should detach the navigation system at night.
Please do not use any cleaning agents or detergents to clean the screen and case of the
device. The best method is to use a soft, damp cloth.
The device must not be attached in a position that obscures the view. Nor should the
device be attached within the area in which the airbags open or within reach of the
head or knees in the event of a collision.
Secure the device so that it will not slide around in the event of emergency braking or
a collision.
To install the device in the vehicle, proceed as follows:
• Find a suitable place in the vehicle for attaching
the cradle. The screen should be clearly visible from
the driver's seat (with a clear view of the sky) but
the device should not obscure the driver's view.
• Press the suction cup against the windscreen and
push the lever towards the windscreen until it locks
into place.
• Attach the navigation system to the cradle.
Dismounting: To detach the device, move the
lever in the opposite direction and carefully pull
the transparent rubber end of the suction cup to
remove it from the window.
For safety reasons you should install the device and enter the required information in
the system before you start your journey or when your vehicle is stationary.
The use of the navigation system does not under any circumstances release the driver
from his/her personal responsibility. The applicable road traffic regulations and
current traffic conditions always have priority. The information provided by the device
is for orientation purposes only and is not binding.
Always check the information provided by the device (speed, remaining travelling
time, distance, recommended route).
Only look at the screen when it is safe to do so. If you need to look at the screen for a
longer period of time, stop the vehicle at an appropriate and safe place.
The touchscreen must not be operated with sharp or rough-edged objects as these can
damage it.
Furthermore, if you plan to leave the vehicle unattended for a long period of time, you
should remove the navigation system from the vehicle in order to avoid theft.

Power supply
The Bluetooth cradle can be powered via the navigation system's internal battery to maximise the user's mobility. When Bluetooth is activated, the operating time of the navigation
system is reduced due to Bluetooth power consumption. We recommend that you power the
Bluetooth cradle with an external power supply.
Microphone position
The microphone should be positioned as closely as possible to the user, but the user should
not speak directly into the microphone (the microphone should ideally be pointing away).
For the best audio quality (with less echo), it may be necessary to change the position of the
navigation system or the microphone.

DVB-T television
DVB-T digital television
You can use your PN 4000/6000 to receive television programmes via DVB-T (Digital Video
Broadcasting Terrestrial).
There may not be as many channels available as there are on your home set, and the
DVB-T standard is not available in all countries. The reception quality also depends on
a number of factors, e.g.:
• The number of transmitters, their distance and their power
• The speed and direction in which your vehicle is moving.
Other factors that may impair reception quality include:
• Operation while the vehicle is moving, e.g. through built-up areas
• Weak signal when overshadowed by other vehicles, travelling through underpasses etc.
For DVB-T reception, connect at least one (for
a better reception connect both) of the
DVB-T aerials supplied with the PN 4000/
6000. Remove the rubber cover on the rear of
the device at the top right and plug in the

GPS and TMC

GPS status and quality
When you switch on the device for the first time, it may take several minutes for the GPS
reception to reach a sufficient level and to determine your current position. If you are unable
to obtain a sufficient GPS signal, please read the "Troubleshooting" chapter for suggestions
on solving the problem.
The GPS aerial is located below the top side of the device. For this reason, try to hold
the navigation device in an upright position for the best possible GPS reception.
If you are using the navigation system in an inner-city area, it may take longer to refresh the map items on screen. This is due to the large number of roads and additional
information (e.g. hotels, restaurants) as well as the high density of buildings. Furthermore it may take longer to establish the GPS reception if you have just driven out of
an underground car park or another type of building where GPS signals are blocked.
The GPS reception can be checked by doing the following
Check the GPS status in the status bar.
If the status bar does not show the GPS status: Tap
on a status bar element and select GPS status from
the list.
The number of tracked GPS satellites is shown. The
quality of the GPS signal is indicated by the shape
and colour of the tick:
Red
Yellow
Yellow
Green
No reception
Initialising or insufficient signal quality,
fewer than 3 satellites have been found
Sufficient signal quality, but not very accurate position
Good signal quality, precise position, guidance possible
GPS and TMC

TMC status and quality (only active TMC cradle)
The TMC device offers you the
additional function of dynamically
avoiding traffic jams. During
navigation, the system regularly
accesses the latest TMC traffic
information, provided this information
is available in the country you are in.
TMC information is displayed in the status
bar.
Tap Settings, then TMC to switch TMC
reception on or off.
Traffic information depends on several
conditions, e.g. the TMC device is switched
on, traffic information must be available and
broadcast by the provider. The quality and
accuracy of the messages depends on the
provider. The navigation device has no
influence over the available data.
If the TMC is switched on but there is no reception, a yellow tick is displayed. During TMC
reception, the name of the provider or a green tick is displayed in the status bar. If the TMC
is switched off, a red cross is displayed instead of a tick or a provider.
If the TMC is switched on and you are receiving travel information, expected delays
are displayed in the status bar (e.g. due to a traffic jam or road works). The delay is
indicated by the colour of the hourglass:
Red
TMC reception OK; delay on selected route
Green TMC reception OK; no delays
Grey TMC unavailable or switched off
If the TMC is switched on and there is a traffic jam on your route, a corresponding icon
appears on the left in the map display screen. Tap this icon and a list of detailed information appears.
