fundamentals
This section describes basic hardware procedures in using your Acer v200 Series Travel Companion. Information
on the device's command interface is also discussed.
Hardware interface
Using the SD/MMC slot
Your Acer v200 Series Travel Companion has an SD/MMC slot compatible with a range of SD and MMC storage
cards that you can use to back up or transfer files and data.

program requires that users load the digital maps available in the Map SD card included with the device.
To insert a storage card:
Hold the device securely; then push the card into the slot until you hear an audible system sound; this will signal
that the card is already properly seated within the slot. The card is secure when it is not protruding from the
slot.
Correct SD card usage
Do not remove the SD card while the device is turned on. Only remove the SD card when the device is turned
off.
Back-up your SD card
Remember to back-up your SD card. All the information and data needed to run the software for the device are
inside your SD card. One way is to back-up your data to a PC.
14
EN
EN
To remove a storage card:
Hold the device securely; then push against the top of the card, as if you were pushing it further into the slot,
letting the card spring out. An audible system sound will signal that the card has been released. Gently remove
the card from the slot.

18
Some countries prohibit the mounting of any electronic device in any location on the vehicle dashboard. Be
sure to check your local laws for applicable mounting before installing the Car mount kit.
Some newer vehicle models may have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield. This may in
some cases obstruct the GPS signal reception. If you encounter this problem in your vehicle, you need to
purchase an external GPS antenna. For more information, contact your local Acer dealer.
The heating and cooling cycle of a vehicle's interior will in some cases loosen the adhesion of the suction
cup. Check the vacuum seal of the Car mount kit for adequate adhesion each time you use the unit, and
reinstall it if necessary.
If the Car mount kit has problems staying on, clean the plastic suction cup with alcohol, then reinstall.
Moistening the suction cup may help adhesion in some cases.
To avoid extreme temperature from damaging the Car mount kit, remove the unit if the temperature inside
your vehicle exceeds 60°C.
The dip in humidity and temperature at night may loosen the adhesion of the suction cup. For this reason,
as well as for security, it is recommended that you remove both the Car mount kit and the Acer v200 Series
Travel Companion when leaving your vehicle overnight.
EN
EN
Storage precautions
•
•
Do not store your device anywhere it may be exposed to water or in conditions of high humidity.
When the device is not in use for an extended period of time, bring it indoors and store it in some location
with a temperature range of -10 to 60°C.
Accessories and repair precautions
•
•
Only Acer authorized accessories should be use with the device. The use of incompatible accessories could
result in bodily injury and/or damage to the device. The use of unauthorized accessories will also void your
warranty.
Never attempt to disassemble, repair or make any modification to your device. Refer all repair needs to your
local Acer dealer.
Cleaning your Acer v200 Series Travel Companion
•
•
Use a damp soft dry cloth to wipe the device's casing (not the display screen). Never use organic solvents
such as benzene or paint thinner to clean your device. Use of these solvents can cause deformation or
discoloration.
Use a soft, clean, lint-free cloth to clean the display screen. Moistened LCD screen wipes could also be used
as required.

Troubleshooting your Acer v200 Series Travel
Companion
Resetting your Acer v200 Series
You may have to perform a reset if your Acer v200 Series no longer responds to the buttons on the screen.
Performing a soft reset
A soft reset allows your Acer v200 Series to get a fresh start, similar to rebooting a computer. All records and
entries are retained after a soft reset.
To perform a soft reset:
1
Make sure that your device is turn on.
2
On the rear panel of you device, use a pen or the tip of the paper clip and press on the reset button to
execute a soft reset.
20
EN
EN
Performing a hard reset
A hard reset will erase the time and date in your Acer v200 Series. The device will take a little longer to reboot
when you do a hard reset. The device will then sync with the GPS time after receiving the GPS signal. Never
perform a hard reset unless a soft reset does not correct your problem. To perform a hard reset follow the
instructions below:
On the rear panel of you device, slide the battery switch down and up again to hard reset your device. See
illustration below.

FAQs
This section lists down frequently asked questions that may arise during the use of your Acer v200 Series Travel
Companion, and gives easy answer and solutions to these questions.
Why is there no sound coming from the device?
•
•
If the earphone is plugged into the device, the speaker is automatically shut off. Disconnect the earphone.
Check that the device’s volume is not set too low. Turn up the volume.
Why is it that sometimes my device takes longer than 5 minutes to get a GPS fix?
If the previous GPS fix position was more than 500 km or 12 hours apart from your current position and time, it
will take significantly longer than the standard TTFF time to get a GPS fix. This is due to the nature of the GPS
algorithm and rotational velocity between the satellites and planet Earth, and deemed normal and is not the
fault of your Acer v200 Series Travel Companion device.
How do I restore the system back to its default factory settings?
Performing a restore to factory default settings requires you to access the Navigation software settings. See your
Navigation software manual for more details.
Does performing a factory reset means a GPS reset as well?
Yes, it will reset the GPS settings.
What should I do if the system stops functioning normally?
Perform a soft reset on the device. Go to "Performing a soft reset" on page 20 for instructions.
I couldn’t turn on the device.
The battery power may be depleted. Recharge the device. Go to "Charging using the car adapter" on page 16
for instructions.
