Quick Start Guide
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Make sure you observe the following safety instructions in order to prevent accidents
or serious injuries:
• This navigation device for outdoor use is merely an orientation and navigation
aid that cannot be a substitute for making a sensible assessment of the situation
you are in. Please note the particular characteristics of the terrain and the
routes you are using. Do not follow any routes or suggested routes which would
entail a dangerous or illegal form of hiking or riding or would place you in a
dangerous situation.
• Road traffic regulations must be complied with at all times, for example when
cycling, and have priority over the routes of the navigation device.
• Never operate the navigation device while riding and do not allow yourself to be
distracted by the device while riding.
• The map data which is used may include inaccurate or incomplete data. You should
therefore check the calculated route to see if it makes sense and choose your own
alternative route if necessary.
CAUTION: The navigation device is intended for hiking, biking, and other outdoor
recreational uses and, as such, is not suitable for use as a vehicle navigation system.
1
installing batteries
Insert the batteries: To open the battery cover, lift
the silver fastener, turn it 90° counterclockwise
and pull it up so that the cover of the battery
1
compartment is removed.
2
battery
compartment
Insert the batteries as indicated in the
battery compartment. Place the battery
cover back on and close it by turning
the silver fastener clockwise.
3
Now switch on your navigation device.
Depending on which type of battery you
are using, you must select the battery type
under Settings > System/General > Battery type.
This is important to adapt the device optimally to the battery
type and thus to achieve the maximum run time from the battery.
Battery notes:
• Do not use any sharp objects to remove the batteries.
• Do not attempt to open the batteries.
• Note the regulations governing the disposal of the batteries.
• Operating temperature: The operating temperature range is 15° to 140°F.
Use AA alkaline, lithium batteries or rechargeable NiMH batteries. Please note that
batteries cannot be recharged while in the device. High brightness of the display
(e.g. over 50%) will reduce the run time of the batteries. Batteries are very sensitive
to temperature.
In cold conditions, the run time of the batteries is greatly curtailed. Optimum results
are achieved at around 70°F. If the battery is weak, the screen is dimmed and the
loudspeaker output is reduced.
To ensure the longest possible battery run time, beep output is recommended. When
using rechargeable batteries, please follow the manufacturer‘s instructions on use to
ensure the maximum capacity of the rechargeable batteries.

GEOCACHING
Your device is equipped with comprehensive
functionality for paperless geocaching.
To transfer geocaches to your device, register
on a geocaching site on the Internet

to your device via the Trailhead software.
From the main menu, tap Geocaching and select

which to search—for example, your current
location or a point of interest.
If you have transferred geocaches around your
current search point to the device, they are
displayed in a list sorted according to distance.
Briefly tap twice on the geocache or tap the
“i” for detailed information about the cache
and its description.
You can display the geocache location on the map,
or under Options add waypoints or comments or
display the hints. Select the cache by clicking OK.
Once you arrive at the cache, additional buttons
under Options allow you to log the cache and
record notes. You can find further information
about geocaching and operation in the detailed
user manual, which is available in the
Trailhead software.
Note: For geocaching, it is essential that under
Settings > Map Display you disable the function
Position On Street so that you can reach
the precise location of the geocache on all terrain.
For cycling or hiking, make sure you reactivate
the function Position On Street.
