SAFETY GUIDELINES
Ensure that all persons read this manual carefully before using the navigation system. It contains instructions on how to
use the system in a safe and effective manner.
Warning: Please read and follow the following safety
precautions. Failure to do so may result in injury or
property damage.
•
Do not operate the product while driving. Always stop the
vehicle in a safe location before using the system.
•
Do not use the navigation system to route you to emergency services such as police and fire stations or hospitals
and clinics. Not all emergency service locations are contained in the database. Please use your own judgment and
ask for directions in such situations.
•
Glance at the screen only when necessary and safe to do
so. If prolonged viewing of the screen is necessary, pull
over at a safe location.
•
Road conditions and regulations take precedence over
information contained on the map display. Observe actual
traffic restrictions and circumstances while driving.
•
Stop use immediately if a problem occurs. Failure to do
so may cause injury or damage to the product. Return it to
your authorized DaimlerChrysler dealer for repair.
•
Do not place fingers or foreign objects into the CD/DVDROM insertion slot. Doing so may result in injury or

•
Always check the CD player for discs before inserting
another disc. Failure to do so may cause damage to the
system.
•
There may be situations where the navigation system
erroneously displays the vehicle's location. Use your own
driving judgment in this situation, taking into account
current driving conditions. Please be aware that in this
situation the navigation system should automatically correct the vehicle's position within a few minutes.
•
Take care when removing a disc from the CD player. The
disc might be hot.
1
SAFETY GUIDELINES
•
Make certain that the volume level of the monitor is set to
a level that still allows you to hear outside traffic and
emergency vehicles.
•
The map database is designed to provide you with route
suggestions and does not take into account the relative
safety of a suggested route or of factors that may affect
the time required to reach your destination. The system
does not reflect road closures or construction, road characteristics (i.e. type of road surface, slope or grade,
weight or height restrictions, etc.), traffic congestion,
weather conditions, or any other factors that may affect
the safety or timing of your driving experience. Use your
own personal judgment if the navigation system is unable
to provide you with an alternate route.
If you have any questions about the operation of the navigation system, please contact a local DaimlerChrysler
dealer or Alpine Customer Service at 1-866-733-5492.

SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
Welcome to your new Navigation System. The information in
this Owner’s Manual is designed to help you begin using
your system quickly and safely. It contains the following
information to help you become familiar with the system:
•
•
•
•
Safety guidelines
System features
System limitations
Detailed descriptions of system menus and controls
Before using the system, please take some time to familiarize
yourself with the information included in this manual.
System Overview
Your navigation system receives GPS signals from up to 8
satellites to display the position and direction of your vehicle.
Map and database information is supplied through a DVDROM. A gyroscope and the vehicle’s speed sensor enable the
system to display the present vehicle position even in locations where GPS signals may be blocked.
When you input a destination, the navigation system uses
map data from the DVD-ROM to quickly calculate a route.
As you drive along your chosen route, you are guided with
pictorial displays and voice prompts.
System Features
Multiple Mode Destination Selection
Destinations can be selected from these 8 categories:
• an address
• an intersection
• a point of interest (POI)
• a recent destination
• your personal address book
• a special feature called Trip Itinerary
• a location selected directly from the map display
• a phone number
Street Name Input
This allows you to input your destination's street name (via
Address or Intersection search) if you don't know your destination's city name.
3
SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
Next Maneuver Guidance
When an upcoming turn is approaching, the system will give maneuver instructions via arrow guides and simple voice prompts.
Voice Guidance
Using voice prompts, the system will notify you of upcoming
turns and highway entrances.
Map Zoom
The map display has 9 different zoom scales to allow you to
increase or decrease map magnification.
Recent Route
Up to 10 previous destinations can be stored in the Recent
Route list.
Faster Input Using Smart Key Filtering
When you use the digital keyboard to input information, the system makes educated guesses based on previously entered letter
combinations and displays only the characters necessary to input
your destination.
4
GPS Clock
The clock will automatically adjust according to GPS time.
This time is also displayed directly on the map along with
your estimated time of arrival (ETA) or estimated drive time
remaining (TO GO).
Trails
You can display a "bread crumb" trail that appears on the
Map screen as you drive along your route. This feature helps to
log where you have traveled and is also useful for "off-roading".
Different Languages
The navigation system can guide you in three different languages: English, Spanish, and French. The text and guidance
are in your language of choice.
Address Book
Up to 100 personal locations and phone numbers can be
stored in the system’s memory. Up to 10 custom Address
Book folders can be created.
Popular Points of Interest (POI)
The navigation system’s database contains thousands of
SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
points of interest in many different categories. Seven different
POI icons can be programmed to appear on the map. These
icons indicate the locations and names of the nearest ATMs,
Banks, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Hotels, Parking Garages,
and Grocery Stores. Three of the 7 categories of icons can be
displayed on the map screen at one time.
Routing Options
You can program the system to minimize the use of toll roads
and freeways or to provide the quickest route. If you go off
course at any time, the system can automatically recalculate a
route to the destination from your present location.
System Limitations
The DVD-ROM that is included with your system contains
the most recent map data available at the time of production.
Because of changes in streets, neighborhoods, and business
locations, there may be situations where the navigation system is not able to route you to your desired destination by the
entry method you have chosen. If this occurs, choose another
entry method.
For example, if the system doesn’t recognize the street address you are searching for, try to find your destination by
inputting the closest cross street names (see “Intersection” on
page 23).
Software upgrades are available to keep your system current.
To obtain information about upgraded map data, please call
Alpine Customer Service at 1-866-733-5492 (Monday
through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Standard Time).
Vehicle Position
While the system uses multiple inputs to determine vehicle
position, there are factors that may cause the position to be
displayed incorrectly:
• Weak GPS reception caused by the obstruction of satellite
signals (tall buildings, tunnels, indoor parking lots).
• Road mismatch. If there is an adjacent road within approximately 35-100 feet (10-30 meters) of your current
position, the system may display your vehicle on the adjacent road.
• Non-use of navigation disc for several days. If the naviga-
5
SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
tion disc is removed from the navigation system and reinserted at a later date, the navigation system may temporarily display an incorrect vehicle position.
Driving the vehicle in an area of good GPS reception should
correct these errors so that the vehicle position is correctly
displayed. (Please note, it may take several minutes for the
system to correct the vehicle position.)
In-Motion Operation
Your navigation system is equipped with a safety feature that
limits the availability of certain navigation tasks while the
vehicle is in motion. Programmable options such as editing
the personal address book or inputting a destination will be
unavailable and grayed out until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Point of Interest selection is limited: you can
choose from a list of the last 5 POIs that were entered.
NOTE: If you try to input information while the vehicle is in-motion, the
system will display a message prompting you to press CANCEL or NAV.
Please note that pressing either of these buttons will cause your input
information to be deleted. To prevent this information from being lost, do
6
not press CANCEL or NAV and wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before inputting any further information.
