1 Warnings and Safety information
The navigation system helps you find your way to your destination with the built-in GPS
receiver. Zenec navigation does not transmit your GPS position; others cannot track you.
It is important that you look at the display only when it is safe to do so. If you are the driver of
the vehicle, we recommend that you operate Zenec navigation before you start your journey.
Plan the route before your departure and stop if you need to change the route.
You must obey the traffic signs and follow the road geometry. If you deviate from the
recommended route, Zenec navigation changes the instructions accordingly.
6
2 Getting started
Zenec navigation is optimised for in-car use. You can use it easily by tapping the screen
buttons and the map with your fingertips.
When using the navigation software for the first time, an initial setup process starts
automatically. Do as follows:
1.
Select the written language of the application interface. Later you can change it in
Regional settings (page 102).
2.
Read the road safety warning message and tap

2.2 Buttons and other controls on the screen
When you are using Zenec navigation, you usually tap buttons on the touch screen.
You only need to confirm selections or changes if the application needs to restart, it needs to
perform a major reconfiguration, or you are about to lose some of your data or settings.
Otherwise, Zenec navigation saves your selections and applies the new settings without
confirmation as soon as you use the controls.

2.3 Map screen
2.3.1 Navigating on the map
The Map screen is the most frequently used screen of Zenec navigation.
This screen is the first screen to appear whenever you start the navigation with a route
already planned.
A small live map is displayed on the Navigation menu, as a part of the
button.
To enlarge this small map and open the Map screen, tap
.
This map shows the current position (the Vehimarker, a blue arrow by default), the
recommended route (an orange line), and the surrounding map area.
When there is no GPS position, the Vehimarker is transparent. It shows your last known
position.
You see coloured dots circling around a satellite symbol in the top left corner. The more green
dots you see, the closer you are to get the valid GPS position.
When GPS position is available, the Vehimarker is displayed in full colour, now showing your
current position.
There are screen buttons and data fields on the screen to help you navigate. During
navigation, the screen shows route information.
button gives quick access to frequently used functions. You can change the
The
available functions in Settings.
12
By default, only one data field is displayed in the bottom right corner. Tap this field to see all
route data fields. Tap any of the data fields to suppress others and display only the selected
one.
The data fields are different when you are navigating an active route and when you have no
specified destination (the orange line is not displayed).
Default data fields when cruising without a destination (tap and hold any of the fields to
change its value):
Field
Description
Shows your current speed given by the GPS receiver.
Shows the speed limit of the current road if the map contains it.
Shows the current time corrected with time zone offset. The accurate
time comes from the GPS satellites, and the time zone information
comes from the map or it can be set manually in Regional settings.
(The current time is always displayed in the top left corner of menu
screens.)
Default data fields when navigating a route (tap and hold any of the fields to change its value):

Description
Shows the distance you need to travel on the route before reaching
your final destination.
Shows the time needed to reach the final destination of the route
based on information available for the remaining segments of the
route.
If your device is capable of receiving live traffic information, the
calculation takes into account traffic delays affecting your route if they
are received. However, this calculation is rarely accurate.
Shows the estimated arrival time at the final destination of the route
based on information available for the remaining segments of the
route.
If your device is capable of receiving live traffic information, the
calculation takes into account traffic delays affecting your route if they
are received. However, this calculation is rarely accurate.
13
2.3.2 Position markers
2.3.2.1 Vehimarker and Lock-on-Road
When your GPS position is available, Zenec navigation marks your current position with the
Vehimarker. By default, this marker is a blue arrow, but you can change this icon in Settings.
When on-road navigation is selected, the Vehimarker may not show your exact GPS position
and heading. If roads are near, it is aligned to the nearest road to suppress GPS position
errors, and the direction of the icon is aligned to the direction of the road.
If you select off-road navigation: The Vehimarker is at your exact GPS position. The direction
of the icon shows your current heading.
2.3.2.2 Selected map location (Cursor) and selected map object
You can mark a map location in the following ways:
•
Tap the map when navigating,
•
Tap the map when you are asked to confirm the destination at the end of a search, or
•
Tap the map in Find on Map (page 56)
When a map location is selected, the Cursor appears at the selected point on the map. The
Cursor is displayed with a radiating red dot (
) to make it visible at all zoom levels.
The location of the Cursor can be used as the destination of the route, a new alert point, you
can search for Places around it, or you can save this location as one of your Favourite
destinations.
You can also select some of the objects on the map. If you tap the map at the icon of a Place
of Interest or an alert point, the object will be selected (you see a red circling border around
the object), and you can get information about this object or use it as a route point.
2.3.3 Objects on the map
2.3.3.1 Streets and roads
Zenec navigation shows the streets in a way that is similar to how the paper road maps show
them. Their width and colours correspond to their importance: you can easily tell a motorway
from a small street.
14
2.3.3.2 Turn preview and Next street
When navigating a route, the top section of the Map screen shows information about the next
route event (manoeuvre) and the next street or the next city/town.
There is a field in the top left corner that displays the next manoeuvre. Both the type of the
event (turn, roundabout, exiting motorway, etc.) and its distance from the current position are
displayed.
A smaller icon shows the type of the second next manoeuvre if it is near the first one.
Otherwise, only the next manoeuvre is displayed.
Most of these icons are very intuitive. The following table lists some of the frequently shown
route events. The same symbols are used in both fields:
Icon
Description
Turn left.
Turn right.
Turn back.
Bear right.
Turn sharp left.
Keep left.
Continue straight in the intersection.
Go left on the roundabout, 3rd exit (next
manoeuvre).
Enter roundabout (second next manoeuvre).
15
Enter motorway.
Exit motorway.
Board ferry.
Leave ferry.
Approaching a waypoint.
Approaching the destination.
2.3.3.3 Lane information and Signposts
When navigating on multilane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to
follow the recommended route. If lane information is available in the map data, Zenec
navigation displays the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map.
Highlighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
Where additional information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are
displayed at the top of the map. The colour and style of the signposts are similar to the real
ones you can see above road or by the roadside. They show the available destinations and
the number of the road the lane leads to.
All signposts look similar when cruising (when there is no recommended route). When
navigating a route, only the signpost that points to the lane(s) to be taken is displayed in vivid
colours; all others are darker.
If you want to hide the currently displayed signposts, tap any of them and the normal Map
screen returns until new signpost information is received.
16
2.3.3.4 Junction view
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and the needed information
exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the junction. The lanes you need to take are
displayed with arrows. Signposts can also be present if information is available.
If you want to hide the currently displayed junction, tap the picture and the Map screen
returns.
2.3.3.5 Motorway exit services
You may need a petrol station or a restaurant during your journey. This feature displays a
new button on the map when you are driving on motorways.
Tap this button to open a panel with the details of the next few exits or service stations.
Tap any of them to display the exit area on the map. You can now easily add this exit as a
waypoint to your route if needed.
If you want to display other types of Places for the exits, you can change the icons in Visual
Guidance settings (page 100).
17
2.3.3.6 3D object types
Zenec navigation supports the following 3D object types:
Type
Description
3D terrain
3D terrain map data shows changes in terrain, elevations or depressions
in the land when you view the map in 2D, and use it to plot the route map
in 3D when you navigate. Hills and mountains are shown in the
background of the 3D map, and illustrated by colour and shading on the
2D map.
Elevated roads
3D landmarks
3D buildings
Complex intersections and vertically isolated roads (such as overpasses
or bridges) are displayed in 3D.
Landmarks are 3D artistic or block representations of prominent or wellknown objects.
3D block representation of full city building data containing actual
building size and position on the map.
2.3.3.7 Elements of the active route
Zenec navigation shows the route in the following way:
Symbol
Name
Description
Current GPS position
and Start point
Your current position displayed on the map. If roads are
near, it is aligned to the nearest road.
Normally if GPS position is available, the route starts from
the current position. If there is no valid GPS position,
Zenec navigation uses the last known position as the start
point.
Waypoint
(intermediate
destination)
Destination
point)
An intermediate destination of the route before reaching
the final destination.
(end
Route colour
The final destination of the route.
The route always stands out with its colour on the map,
both in daytime and in night colour mode.
Streets and roads
that are excluded
from the navigation
You can choose whether you want to use or avoid certain
road types (page 95). However, when Zenec navigation
cannot avoid such roads, the route will include them and it
will show them in a colour that is different from the route
colour.
Streets and roads
that are affected by
traffic events
Road segments may be affected by traffic events
received. These streets and roads are displayed in an
alternate colour, and small symbols displayed along the
route show the type of the traffic event.

3 On-road navigation
When first started, Zenec navigation calculates routes using the road network of the high
quality vector maps provided with the product.
You can set up your route in different ways:
•
If you need a route for immediate navigation, you can select the destination and start
navigating to it right away (normal navigation).
•
You can also plan a route independently of your current GPS position or even without
GPS reception. To achieve this you need to set a new starting point in My Route / Edit
Route by tapping the flag icon at the current position. This will also turn off the GPS
receiver so that the route is not recalculated when a new position is received.
You can plan routes with multiple destinations. Select the first destination. Then select a
second destination and add it to your route to create a multi-point route. You can add as
many destinations to your route as you like.
You can also use Zenec navigation for off-road navigation. For details, see page 79.
3.1 Selecting the destination of a route
Zenec navigation offers you several ways of choosing your destination:
•
Enter a full address or a part of an address, for example a street name without a house
number or the names of two intersecting streets (page 35).
•
Enter an address with postal code (page 43). This way you do not need to select the
name of the city/town and the search for street names might be faster as well.
•
Use a built-in Place of Interest as your destination (page 45).
•
Select a location on the map with the Find on Map feature (page 56).
•
Use a previously saved Favourite destination (page 57).
•
Select a location from the History of previously used destinations (page 59).
•
Enter the coordinate of the destination (page 60).
3.1.1 Smart Search
There are several ways to select the destination of the route. You can find buttons in the Find
menu that initiate a separate search for addresses, Places, Favourite or recent destinations.
The fastest way to search for any of these is to use the Smart Search. In this section you can
find the full description of how this feature works. The below process shows how to carry out
the search and the following subsections will help you find specific kinds of results.

In the Navigation menu, tap

First you see hints on the screen showing how you can use the function. These hints
are only displayed the first time you use this screen.
3.
Tap anywhere and the hints disappear. Once you get through this screen to the search
results, the hint will not appear again when you open this window later but you can see
them again if you tap the information button on the right side of the input field.
4.
You can see the input field at the top of the screen. Right below that you see the
search area, the city/town around which the search is carried out. The default search
area is the area where you are located. For a local search, skip the next step.
5.
(optional) To search in a different area, do as follows:

2.
Tap anywhere and the hint disappears. If you successfully select a new search
area, the hint will not appear again when you open this window later but you can
see it again if you tap the information button on the right side of the input field.
3.
Start entering the centre of the new search area using the screen keyboard. You
only need to enter a few letters to get a result. If the new search area is in a
different country, you can narrow the search results if you enter one space and
then a few letters of the country of the search area.

The most likely result appears below the input field as you enter new letters.

6.
With the proper search area displayed, you can start entering the name, address or
category of the destination you are looking for. The number shown in the
button shows how many results match the entered text. The
background search is carried out while you enter letters so this number may keep on
increasing if you wait a few seconds. Keep on entering new letters while this number is
high.
7.
Once the number of results is acceptable after a few seconds of searching, you can
tap
to switch to the result screen.
8.
The result screen also opens with hints. Tap anywhere to suppress them. Once you
select a destination, they will not appear again.
9.
You see all results in the list, regardless of their type. Addresses, Places, Place
categories, Favourite and recent destinations are mixed within one list.
10.
11.
You have the following options:
•
Tap the result you want to use as your destination. Scroll the list if necessary.
•
To narrow the search for only one type of result (for example for Places only)
you can tap the related button at the top of the screen. See the next sections for
details.

3.1.1.3 Smart Search - Navigating to an intersection
To find an intersection in Smart Search, carry out the search as described earlier but use the
'&' sign to separate the two intersecting streets. You do not need to use spaces before and
after the separator character. For example you can use any of the following input texts to find
the intersections of Collins Street and Douglas Avenue (the more precise the input string the
fewer false results are expected):
•
Collins St & Douglas Ave
•
Collins & Douglas
•
Coll St & Dou Av

You can speed up finding an intersection:
•
Search first for the street with a less common or less usual name; fewer letters
are enough to find it.
•
If one of the streets is shorter, search for that one first. You can then find the
second one faster.
•
You can search for both the type and the name of a road. If the same word appears in
several names, for example in the name of streets, roads and avenues, you can obtain
the result faster if you enter the first letter of the street type: For example, enter 'PI A' to
obtain Pine Avenue and skip all Pine Streets and Pickwick Roads.

You can also search in postal codes. As postal codes consist of only a few characters,
this is usually faster than entering the name of the city/town.

4 Off-road navigation
When first started, Zenec navigation calculates routes using the road network of the high
quality vector maps provided with the product. You can switch the application to off-road
mode in Navigation settings in one of the following ways:
•
,
From the Main menu, tap
,
and then
.
•
From the Map screen, tap
,
and then
.
Most of the procedures described for on-road navigation also apply to off-road navigation.
However, there are some that are not available in this navigation mode (for example you
cannot open the itinerary as you have no manoeuvres just route points and straight lines
between them).
4.1 Selecting the destination of the route
Selecting the start point or a destination (waypoint or final destination) is the same as
described at on-road navigation. The only difference is that route points are linked to form a
route with straight lines regardless of the road network and traffic regulations.
4.2 Navigating in off-road mode
The real difference between the on-road and off-road modes is the navigation itself. When
you are on the Map screen with an off-road route:
•
your position and heading is not aligned with the nearest road and
•
there is no turn by turn navigation just a recommended direction.
You see a orange line drawn between your current position and the next destination to reach.
The Turn Preview field in the top left corner shows a compass with your bearing and the
distance of the next destination.
When you reach a waypoint, the orange line will show the direction to the next destination.
(Future legs of the route are shown with orange lines.)
When you reach the final destination, navigation ends.
79
5 Lorry navigation
The navigation software gives more options for lorry drivers:
5.1 Setting up vehicle parameters
When you use Zenec navigation with a lorry, you need to select a lorry type vehicle profile in
Route settings and enter the parameters of your vehicle. These parameters are used in route
calculation to bypass roads that are restricted for your lorry. Do as follows:

button at the Default Lorry profile or
The list of vehicle profile parameters appear. Scroll the list and tap any of the lines to
change the parameters. The parameters are intuitive. In addition, you have the
following options:
•
: When enabled, the list of vehicle parameters always
appears before route calculation. This helps you quickly adjust the parameters
when some of them (the actual weight for instance) often change.
80
7.
When finished with the vehicle parameters:
•
tap
if you have modified an existing vehicle profile or
•
tap
if you have created a new profile.
While this profile is selected, the parameters of your vehicle are taken into account when
planning routes. Note that this leads to a safe route for your lorry only if map data contains the
weight, height, etc. restrictions of the road network in your area.
Speed limits for lorries may not be available for all roads. It is advised to enter the
Tip! maximum allowed speed in your area for your vehicle instead of the maximum speed
your lorry is capable of.
When you often use your vehicle with typical configurations of parameters (for
example with or without a trailer that also affects the length, the height, the number of
Tip! axles and the weight), it is better to create different vehicle profiles for the typical
setups and change between the profiles instead of always modifying parameters.
81
6 Reference Guide
On the following pages you will find the description of the different concepts and menu
screens of Zenec navigation.
6.1 Concepts
6.1.1 Smart Zoom
Smart Zoom provides much more than just a usual automatic zoom feature:
•
While following a route: when approaching a turn, it will zoom in and raise the view
angle to let you easily recognise your manoeuvre at the next junction. If the next turn is
at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see the
road in front of you.
•
While driving without an active route: Smart Zoom will zoom in if you drive slowly
and zoom out when you drive at high speed.
6.1.2 Daytime and night colour themes
Zenec navigation uses different colour themes during the day and during the night for both the
map and the menu screens.
•
Daytime colours are similar to paper road maps, and the menus are bright.
•
The night colour themes use dark colours for large objects to keep the average
brightness of the screen low.
6.1.3 Tunnel view
When entering a tunnel, the map is replaced with a generic tunnel image so that surface
roads and buildings cannot distract you.
The top-down overview of the tunnel helps you orientate yourself. The remaining distance in
the tunnel is also displayed.
After leaving the tunnel, the original map view returns.
This feature can be turned off in Settings (page 100).
82
6.1.4 Route calculation and recalculation
Zenec navigation calculates the route based on your preferences:
•
•
Route planning methods:
•
: Gives a quick route if you can travel at or near the speed
limit on all roads. Usually the best selection for fast and normal cars.
•
: Gives a route that has the smallest total distance of all
possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles.
•
: Gives a quick but fuel efficient route based on the fuel
consumption data given in Route settings (page 95). Travel cost and CO2
emission calculations are estimations only. They cannot take elevations, curves
and traffic conditions into account.
•
: For vehicle types where Green routing is not available,
this method combines the benefits of Fast and Short: Zenec navigation
calculates as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other roads as well
to save fuel.
•
: Results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult
manoeuvres. With this option, you can make Zenec navigation to take, for
example, the motorway instead of a series of smaller roads or streets.
Vehicle types:
When creating a new vehicle profile, select one of the below vehicle types. Besides the
below mentioned conditions, dimension, weight and freight hazard restrictions can also
be taken into account when planning a route.

Real-time Traffic events are also taken into account and sometimes greatly modify the route.
Zenec navigation automatically recalculates the route if you deviate from the proposed
itinerary or if a newly received Traffic event concerns a part of the recommended route.
For further information about Route settings, see page 95.
6.1.5 Green routing
Route calculation is not only about finding the quickest or shortest route. For some of the
vehicle types, you can also check the fuel consumption and CO2 emission when planning a
route, and you can create cost effective routes with less effect on the environment.
In Route settings, you can edit the parameters of the selected vehicle. Enter the fuel
consumption values and the price of the fuel. You can also select whether you want to see
the difference between your route and the green route even if the selected routing method is
not Green.
as route planning method to
After the above parameters are set, select
get a fast but also fuel efficient route. Note that travel cost and CO2 emission calculations are
estimations only. They cannot take elevations, turns, curves and traffic conditions into
account. Also, this routing is not meant to give you the "greenest" route of all. It is still
important to travel quickly so the result is a fast route with low fuel consumption and CO2
emission.
With a vehicle type where green routing is selectable, whichever route planning method is
selected, the Green details are also shown when you confirm the route:
85
If the selected route planning method is not Green, and you have allowed the application to
show the green alternative, the price, fuel consumption and CO2 emission differences
between your selected route and the Green route are also shown on this screen:
Tap the field with these details to switch the route to Green immediately.
6.1.6 Road safety cameras and other proximity alert points
There is a special proximity warning for road safety cameras (like speed or red light cameras)
and other proximity alert points (like schools or railroad crossings). These alert points are not
part of Zenec navigation. You can download them from zenec.naviextras.com or you can
upload points in a specific text file if needed.
You can also add your own alert points or edit the previously uploaded points. See page 75
for details.
The application can warn you when you approach road safety cameras like speed cameras or
dangerous areas like school zones or railroad crossings. You can set up the different alert
types individually in Sound and Warning settings (page 92).
The following alert types are available:
•
Audio warning: beeps can be played (natural voice) or the type of the alert can be
announced (TTS) while you are approaching one of these points, and an extra alert
can warn you if you exceed the given speed limit while approaching.
•
Visual warning: the type of the alert point, its distance and the related speed limit
appear on the Map screen while you are approaching one of these cameras.
For some of the alert points, the enforced or expected speed limit is available. For these
points, the audio alert can be different if you are below or above the given speed limit.
•
Only when speeding: The audio alert is only played when you exceed the given speed
limit.
•
When approaching: The audio alert is always played when approaching one of these
alert points. In order to draw your attention, the alert can is different when you exceed
the speed limit.
The warning for road safety cameras is disabled when you are in a country where
Note! road safety camera warning is prohibited. However, you must ensure on your own
liability that using this feature is legal in the country where you intend to use it.
86
6.1.7 Speed limit warning
Maps may contain information about the speed limits of the road segments. Zenec navigation
is able to warn you if you exceed the current limit. This information may not be available for
your region (ask your local dealer), or may not be fully correct for all roads in the map.
The maximum speed set in the vehicle profile is also used for this warning. Zenec navigation
alerts you if you exceed the preset value even if the legal speed limit is higher.
Speed warning can be fine-tuned in Sound and Warning settings (page 92).
You can set the relative speed above which the application initiates the warning.
The following alert types are available:
•
Audio warning: you receive a verbal warning when you exceed the speed limit with the
given percentage.
•
Visual warning: the current speed limit is shown on the map when you exceed it (for
example:
).
You can also choose to see the speed limit sign on the map all the time.
6.1.8 GPS position quality indicator and current time
You can find useful information in the top corners of menu screens.
The current time is displayed in the top left corner.
In the top right corner, the GPS reception quality icon shows the current accuracy of the
position information.
Icon
Description
Zenec navigation has no connection to the GPS receiver: GPS
navigation is not possible.
Devices with a built-in GPS receiver are permanently connected. On
such devices, the icon does not appear in normal circumstances.
Zenec navigation is connected to the GPS receiver, but the signal is
too weak and the receiver cannot determine the GPS position.
GPS navigation is not possible.
Only a few satellites are received. Position information is available, but
elevation (altitude) cannot be calculated.
GPS navigation is possible, but the position error may be significant.
Altitude information is available, the position is a 3D position.
GPS navigation is possible.
87
6.1.9 Traffic information in route planning
The recommended route is not always the same between two points. Real-time traffic
information can help you avoid current traffic events like temporary road closures or a traffic
jam caused by an accident. The function is subject to data availability.
You can display the live traffic information on the map if you browse the map and select this
option from the More menu. A 2D map is displayed with road segments coloured by the
severity of traffic events. Tap the event type icon at the road segment and then tap the
button to get information about the traffic event.
6.1.9.1 Real-time traffic information (TMC)
TMC (Traffic Message Channel) can provide you with the real-time status of the traffic. Route
calculation can avoid road blocks or unexpected traffic jams caused by an accident.
TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System (RDS) used for broadcasting realtime traffic and weather information.
Using traffic information is enabled by default in Zenec navigation.
Note!
TMC is not a global service. It may not be available in your country or region. Ask
your local dealer for coverage details.
Zenec navigation contains the TMC receiver that is needed to receive Traffic events.
If public Traffic data is broadcast at your location, Zenec navigation automatically takes into
account the traffic events received. You do not need to set anything in the program. The
receiver will automatically search the FM radio stations for TMC data, and the decoded
information will immediately be used in route planning. When Zenec navigation receives traffic
information that may affect your route, the program will warn you that it is recalculating the
route, and navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal considering the most up-todate traffic conditions.
To fine-tune this recalculation, you can set the minimum delay that can trigger a route
recalculation, or you can instruct Zenec navigation to have you confirm the new
recommended route before it takes effect. You can do these in Traffic settings (page 94).

Different voice profiles are capable of different levels of service:
•
Natural Voice: These prerecorded sounds can only tell you
basic information about turns and distances.
•
TTS Voice: These computed voices can tell you complex
instructions, they can tell you the street names or read out the
system messages for you.
Tap this button to adjust the enhanced TTS features. The following
settings are available:
•
You can set the feature to read out traffic messages.
•
Whenever a route is calculated, the software can read out the
quick summary of the route.
•

•
announces the manoeuvre only.
You can also decide whether you want an announcement for distance
manoeuvres or it is enough to receive the information when the turn is
near.
Tap this button to set the verbosity of the voice instructions: how much
they tell and how often they speak.
92
Maps may contain information about the speed limits of the road
segments. Zenec navigation is able to warn you if you exceed the
current limit. This information may not be available for your region (ask
your local dealer), or may not be fully correct for all roads in the map.
The maximum speed set in the vehicle profile is also used for this
warning. Zenec navigation alerts you if you exceed the preset value
even if the legal speed limit is higher.
This setting lets you decide whether you wish to receive visible and/or
audible warnings.
Adjust the slider to set the relative speed above which the application
initiates the warning.
The following alert types are available:
•
Audio warning: you receive a verbal warning when you exceed
the speed limit with the given percentage.
•
Visual warning: the current speed limit is shown on the map
when you exceed it.
If you prefer to see the speed limit sign on the map all the time
(normally it is shown only if your speed exceeds it), you can set it here.
This feature allows you to receive a warning when approaching a
Road Safety Camera or other alert points like school zones or railroad
crossings. You must ensure on your own liability that using this feature
is legal in the country where you intend to use it.
You can set the alert for the different alert point categories individually.
The following alert types are available:
•
Audio warning: beeps can be played (natural voice) or the type
of the alert can be announced (TTS) while you are approaching
one of these points, and an extra alert can warn you if you
exceed the given speed limit while approaching.
•
Visual warning: the type of the alert point, its distance and the
related speed limit appear on the Map screen while you are
approaching one of these cameras.
For some of the alert points, the enforced or expected speed limit is
available. For these points, the audio alert can be different if you are
below or above the given speed limit.
•
Only when speeding: The audio alert is only played when you
exceed the given speed limit.
•
When approaching: The audio alert is always played when
approaching one of these alert points. In order to draw your
attention, the alert is different when you exceed the speed limit.
Maps may contain driver alert information. Tap this button to turn on or
off these warnings and to set the distance from the hazard to receive
the warning at. These can be set individually for the different warning
types.

change, and select its new function from the list.
The list of available functions and their descriptions are on page 21.
6.3.3 Traffic settings
The recommended route is not always the same between two points. Whenever suitable data
exists, traffic information can be taken into account in the route calculation.
Button
Description
Use this switch to enable or disable the TMC receiver that can receive
real-time traffic information. The rest of the buttons below are all
related to the TMC function and are available only if the receiver is
enabled.
Normally you do not need to tune to a station with TMC data. The
tuner automatically sweeps through the FM frequency range to find the
appropriate stations broadcasting traffic information. Turn this switch
off and set the frequency manually if needed.
With this switch on, Zenec navigation receives traffic information from
the more reliable paid sources only. Turn this switch off to receive
traffic information from both paid and free to public sources.
This setting determines how Zenec navigation uses the received realtime traffic information in route calculation. When calculating a new
route, or when recalculation becomes necessary based on the
received Traffic events, Zenec navigation avoids traffic events if it
makes sense.
You can also set the minimum delay that triggers route recalculation,
and you can instruct the application if you want to confirm every
recalculation.
Tap this button to open the list of traffic event types, and select which
events to take into account in route calculation.
94
6.3.4 Route settings
These settings determine how routes will be calculated.
Button
Description
You can set the type of vehicle you will use to navigate the route.
Based upon this setting, some of the road types can be excluded from
the route, or some of the restrictions may not be taken into account in
route calculation.
You can edit the parameters of the selected vehicle profile, or you can
even create new vehicle profiles if you tap More.
On-road navigation creates a turn by turn itinerary using the road
network on the map. Switch to off-road navigation to navigate between
destinations in a straight line.
The route calculation can be optimised for different situations and
vehicle types by changing the planning method. See below for details.
To let the route fit your needs, you can also set which road types are to be considered for or
to be excluded from the route if possible.
Excluding a road type is a preference. It does not necessarily mean total prohibition. If your
destination can only be accessed using some of the excluded road types, they will be used
but only as much as necessary. In this case a warning icon will be shown on the My Route
screen, and the part of the route not matching your preference will be displayed in a different
colour on the map.
In the list of road types you can see in how many segments and what total length of the road
type is used in the current route.
Button
Description
You might need to avoid motorways when you are driving a slow car or
you are towing another vehicle.
Charge roads are pay roads where you can purchase a pass or
vignette to use the road for a longer period of time. They can be
enabled or disabled separately from toll roads.
Zenec navigation includes toll roads (pay roads where there is a peruse charge) in the routes by default. If you disable toll roads, Zenec
navigation plans the best toll-free route.
Zenec navigation includes ferries in a planned route by default.
However, a map does not necessarily contain information about the
accessibility of temporary ferries. You might also need to pay a fare on
ferries.
Zenec navigation excludes unpaved roads by default: unpaved roads
can be in a bad condition and usually you cannot reach the speed limit
on them.
95
If the selected routing method is not Green, you can have your route
compared to the best green alternative on the screen when confirming
the route. If this alternative is much better than the selected method,
you can quickly switch to Green mode.

Route Planning Method types:
Button
Description
Gives a quick route if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all
roads. Usually the best selection for fast and normal cars.
Gives a short route to minimise the distance to travel. It can be
practical for slow vehicles. Searching for a short route regardless of
the speed, this route type is rarely practical for normal vehicles.
Gives a quick but fuel efficient route based on the fuel consumption
data given in Route settings (page 95). Travel cost and CO2 emission
calculations are estimations only. They cannot take elevations, curves
and traffic conditions into account.
For vehicle types where Green routing is not available, this method
combines the benefits of Fast and Short: Zenec navigation calculates
as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other roads as well
to save fuel.
Results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult manoeuvres. With
this option, you can make Zenec navigation to take, for example, the
motorway instead of a series of smaller roads or streets.
6.3.5 User profiles
If more drivers use Zenec navigationfor navigating, their settings can be remembered by
using one of the user profiles. Rename the profiles after tapping the edit button on the right so
that all users know which profile to use and switch between profiles by tapping its name. If
you select a new profile, the application restarts so that the new settings can take effect.
98
6.3.6 Map settings
You can fine-tune the appearance of the Map screen. Adjust the map view to your needs,
choose suitable colour themes from the list for both daytime and night use, change the blue
arrow to a 3D car model, show or hide 3D buildings, turn track logging on or off, and manage
you Place visibility sets (which Places to show on the map).
The map is always shown on the screen so that you can see the effect when you change a
setting.
Button
Description
Switch the map view between a 3D perspective view and a 2D topdown view.
Adjust the basic zoom and tilt levels to your needs. Three levels are
available.
When selected, the map zooms out to show an overview of the
surrounding area if the next route event (manoeuvre) is far. When you
get close to the event, the normal map view returns.
Switch between daytime and night colour modes or let the software
switch between the two modes automatically a few minutes before
sunrise and a few minutes after sunset.
Select the colour scheme used in daytime mode.
Select the colour scheme used in night mode.
Replace the default position marker to one of the 3D vehicle models.
You can select separate icons for different vehicle types selected for
route planning. Separate icons can be used for car, pedestrian and the
other vehicles.
Show or suppress 3D landmarks, 3D artistic or block representations
of prominent or well-known objects.
Show or suppress 3D city models, 3D artistic or block representation
of full city building data containing actual building size and position on
the map.
99
Show or suppress the 3D elevation of the surrounding terrain.
Turn on or off track log saving, that is, saving the sequence of the
locations your journeys go through.
Select which Places to show on the map while navigating. Too many
Places make the map crowded so it is a good idea too keep as few of
them on the map as possible. For this, you have the possibility to save
different Place visibility sets. You have the following possibilities:
•
Tap the checkbox to show or hide the Place category.
•
Tap the name of the Place category to open the list of its
subcategories.
•
to save the current Place visibility set
Tap
or to load a previously saved one. Here you can also revert to
the default visibility settings.
6.3.7 Visual guidance settings
Adjust how the software helps you navigate with different kinds of route related information on
the Map screen.
The data fields in the corner of the Map screen can be customised.
Tap this button and select the values you want to see. The values can
be different when you navigate a route from when you are just cruising
without a given destination. You can select general trip data like your
current speed or the altitude, or route data related to your final
destination or the next waypoint on your route.
You may need a petrol station or a restaurant during your journey. This
feature displays a new button on the map when you are driving on
motorways. Tap this button to open a panel with the details of the next
few exits or service stations. Tap any of them to display it on the map
and add it as a waypoint to your route if needed.
Select the service types displayed for the motorway exists. Choose
from the POI categories.
Whenever adequate information is available, lane information similar
to the real ones on road signs above the road is displayed at the top of
the map. You can turn this feature on or off.
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and
the needed information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of
the junction. You can turn this feature on or let the map be displayed
for the whole route.
100
When entering tunnels, the surface roads and buildings can be
disturbing. This feature shows a generic picture of a tunnel instead of
the map. A top-down overview of the tunnel and remaining distance
are also displayed.
Turn on the route progress bar to see your route ahead as a straight
line on the left side of the map. The blue arrow represents your current
position and moves up as you travel to the next route event
(manoeuvre or destination). Traffic events are also displayed on the
line.
When you slow down while driving on a motorway, there is a chance
that you are in a traffic jam so Zenec navigation offers you a detour
using the next exit. The message shows you distance of the exit and
the difference in distance and estimated time compared to the original
route. You can choose from one of the following options:
•
Tap Dismiss or just ignore the message if you want to keep the
original route.
•
Tap Preview to see the overview of the original route and the
detour to make the decision. You can accept the detour as
offered or increase the bypassed motorway segment before
accepting.
•
Turn to the suggested new direction and the route will be
automatically recalculated.
Similar to the above possibility, alternative routes can be suggested
when driving on normal roads. Zenec navigationwill select a different
turn in the upcoming intersection and offers you a different route for
the next section of the route.
Your options are the similar as above but you cannot modify the
offered detour.
Parking at the destination may not be easy in city areas. As you
approach the destination, Zenec navigation can offer parking category
Places near your destination. Tap the "P" button to open a top-down
map with the destination and the offered parking Places. Select one
and modify the route accordingly.
If you leave the recommended route and suddenly exit the motorway,
the application offers different alternatives near the exit like petrol
stations or restaurants. Also, if there are avoidable parts of the original
route ahead (like a tunnel, a toll road or a ferry), you will find them in
the list in case you want to bypass them with the help of Zenec
navigation.
101
6.3.8 Display settings
Display related settings include menu animations, separate skins for daytime and night use
and the brightness of the display.
When animation is turned on, buttons on menus and keyboard screens
appear in an animated way. Screen transitions are also animated.
Select the style and colours of the application used in daytime mode.
Select the style and colours of the application used in night mode.
6.3.9 Regional settings
These settings allow you to customise the application for your local language, measurement
units, time and date settings and formats, as well as to choose the time zone.
Button
Description
This button displays the current written language of the user interface.
By tapping the button, you can select a new language from the list of
available languages. The application will restart if you change this
setting; you are asked to confirm this.
You can set the distance units to be used by the program. Zenec
navigation may not support all the listed units in some voice guidance
languages.
Select between 12 and 24 hours time display and the various
international date display formats.
You can also set other country specific units used to display different
values in the application.
By default, time zone is taken from the map information and adjusted
by your current location. Here you can set time zone and daylight
saving manually.
102
6.3.10 Trip monitor settings
Trip logs contain useful information about your trips. Trip logs can be saved manually when
you reach your destination or you can turn on the automatic saving here. You can access
these logs in the Trip monitor. Trip monitor is available from the More menu.
Trip monitor can record statistical data of your trips. If you need these
logs later, you can let the application save them automatically for you.
This is not a button. This line shows the current size of the trip
database, the sum of all trip and track logs saved.
Track logs, the sequence of the positions given by the GPS receiver,
can be saved together with trip logs. They can later be displayed on
the map. You can let the application save the track log whenever it
saves a trip.

7 Glossary
2D/3D GPS reception
The GPS receiver uses satellite signals to calculate its (your) position and needs at least four
signals to give a three-dimensional position, including elevation. Because the satellites are
moving and because objects can block the signals, your GPS device might not receive four
signals. If three satellites are available, the receiver can calculate the horizontal GPS position
but the accuracy is lower and the GPS device does not give you elevation data: only 2D
reception is possible.
Active route
The currently navigated route. Whenever the destination is set, the route is active until you
delete it, reach your destination or you quit Zenec navigation. See also: Route.
City Centre
The city/town centre is not the geometric centre of the city/town but an arbitrary point the map
creators have chosen. In towns and villages, it is usually the most important intersection; in
larger cities, it is one of the important intersections.
Colour theme
Zenec navigation comes with different colour themes for daytime or night use of the map and
menu screens. Themes are custom graphic settings and they can have different colours for
streets, blocks or surface waters in 2D and 3D modes, and they display shades or shadows in
different ways in 3D mode.
One daytime scheme and one night scheme is always selected for the map and for the
menus. Zenec navigation uses them when it switches from day to night and back.
GPS accuracy
Several factors have impact on the deviation between your real position and the one given by
the GPS device. For example, signal delay in the ionosphere or reflecting objects near the
GPS device have a different and varying impact on how accurately the GPS device can
calculate your position.
Map
Zenec navigation works with digital maps which are not simply the computerised versions of
traditional paper maps. Similarly to the paper road maps, the 2D mode of digital maps show
you streets, roads, and elevation is also shown by colours.
In 3D mode, you can see the altitude differences, for example valleys and mountains,
elevated roads, and in selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed.
You can use digital maps interactively: you can zoom in and out (increase or decrease the
scale), you can tilt them up and down, and rotate them left and right. In GPS-supported
navigation, digital maps facilitate route planning.
104
North-up map orientation
In North-up mode the map is rotated so its top always faces North. This is the orientation for
example in Find on Map.
Road Safety Camera
Special alert points for speed, red light or bus lane cameras. Different data sources are
available. You can configure Zenec navigation to warn you when you approach one of these
cameras.
Detecting the location of Road Safety Cameras is prohibited in certain countries. It is the sole
responsibility of the driver to check whether this feature can be used during the trip.
The software is capable of showing and warning for more than just cameras. Various other
types of proximity alert points like school zones and railway crossings are also available.
Route
A sequence of route events, i.e. manoeuvres (for example, turns and roundabouts) to reach
the destination. The route contains one start point and one or more destinations. The start
point is the current (or last known) position by default. If you need to see a future route, the
start point can be replaced with any other given point.
Track-up map orientation
In Track-up mode the map is rotated so its top always points in the current driving direction.
This is the default orientation in 3D map view mode.
Vehimarker
The current position is shown with a blue arrow on the map by default. The direction of the
blue arrow shows the current heading. This position marker can be replaced with different 3D
vehicle symbols. You can even specify different Vehimarkers for different route types
(depending on which vehicle type is selected for route calculation).
