8.1) It says “Some of the roads on this route are not on the National Network”
What this means is that part of the route is on secondary (local) roads. This is common when
making pickups and deliveries.
For information about the National Network, please click <HERE>.
<back to menu>
8.2) Poor routing
Problem – “I know a better way”
As a general rule, a navigation product will usually not take the same route that you would
choose on your own. For example if you drive the same route every day, then you have learned
the best way to go based on traffic patterns. The nav unit will get you there, but it will probably
choose a different way.
Navigation units are not designed to show you the way to familiar destinations. If you always
know the best way to go, then you do not need a nav unit! Navigation units are very handy to
guide you to unfamiliar destinations. If you follow the turn-by-turn instructions, you will arrive
at your destination.
Problem – “I don’t like the route”
The 7750 PLT offers flexibility in calculating a route. You can change the routing options, and
you can also choose to avoid a particular road by choosing a “detour”.
For info on changing routing options, click <HERE>.
For info on doing a detour, click <HERE>.
Problem – “Route Calculate Failure”
Please click <HERE> for info.
<back to menu>
8.3) “Route Calculate Failure”
This error means that the nav unit cannot find a legal route based on the parameters of your
truck. Here is an example:
EXAMPLE
In West Virginia, the maximum legal truck length is 70 feet (due to the winding mountain roads).
If the you enter a length greater than 70 feet, the nav unit will not route anything into, out of, or
through West Virginia. You will get a Route Calculate Failure.
Recommendations
1. Double-check your truck settings.
a. Tap anywhere on the map screen.
b. Tap on CONFIGURE (in the upper-right).
c. Tap on TRUCK.
Make sure that you did not make a mistake when entering the length, width, or weight. For
info on these settings, please click <HERE>.
2. Try setting up a new truck, and just use the default settings. If the nav unit now routes, then
you know that one of your settings was causing the problem.
3. Drive a little towards the destination and try again. This will only work if the restriction is
near your current location. If the restriction is near the destination, then you will continue
to get a Route Calculate Failure.
4. If you chose to travel to a city without entering a complete address, the nav unit may have
arbitrarily chosen an address that is inaccessible by truck. Try entering an actual address.
5. If you call Cobra Customer Service at 773-889-3087, we can double-check the route for
you. Please be prepared to provide the following information:
a. Your truck info (the truck type, weights, lengths, and load type).
b. The starting address (or at least the starting city).
c. The destination address.
<back to menu>
8.4) My unit will not turn on
1. Check the power switch on the back of the unit. Make sure it is switched ON.
2. Try plugging the AC adapter into the nav unit. If the nav unit turns on, then you know that it
is good. If it does not turn on then there is a problem with the nav unit.
3. The cigarette socket may not have power. Try firmly pushing the cigarette plug into the
socket and twist it a little.
4. The power cord may be faulty. Try a replacement power cord.
<back to menu>
8.5) Observing satellite lock status
1. Tap anywhere on the map screen.
2. Tap on CONFIGURE.
3. Scroll to the next page and choose GPS STATUS.
Take notice of the HEALTH status as shown above. It will tell you how many satellites are
locked.
At the bottom of the screen it will show individual satellite locks as follows:
White bar: The nav unit has locked onto that satellite.
Gray Bar: The nav unit is in the process of locking onto that satellite.
No Bar:
There is no satellite reception on that channel.
The nav unit must lock onto at least 4 satellites before it will be ready to navigate.
The RESET button will reset the satellite receiver. You will immediately lose all satellite
reception. It may take 5 to 10 minutes to re-acquire satellites. Do not press RESET unless you
really want to reset the satellite receiver!
<back to menu>
8.6) Auto-brightness is not working properly
The 7750 PLT will adjust the display brightness based on the time of day.
Your unit will not know the local time until it locks onto satellites, therefore the auto-brightness
will not function until satellite lock is achieved.
You can also manually adjust the brightness as follows:
STEP 1 – Tap on the speaker icon in the lower-right
STEP 2 – Adjust the brightness
<back to menu>
8.7) I do not see POI icons on the map screen
By default, the 7750 PLT will show all POI icons on the map screen. This makes for a very
cluttered screen.
1. Tap anywhere on the map screen.
2. Tap on CONFIGURE (in the upper-right).
3. Tap on SHOW POI.
You may now select which categories (if any) to show on the map screen.
In order to see POI icons, you must be zoomed-in far enough.
If you do not see any icons, try zooming in.
<back to menu>
8.8) Trouble locking onto satellites
There are several issues to check for:
1. When you purchased your nav unit, there was no satellite data stored inside. Your unit will
be slow to acquire satellites until it has an opportunity to store satellite data. To let it store
satellite data, simply let it run for at least 15 minutes AFTER it has locked onto satellites.
After that, it should find satellites much faster.
2. Although your nav unit is very sensitive, your installation may not allow enough of the
satellite signal to reach the unit. This can occur if the unit is not installed at the windshield.
For best satellite reception, mount your unit at the windshield. You can also order the
optional external antenna, part number EXT GPS ANT. Click <HERE> for info.
3. The antenna is located at the top of your nav unit. During installation, please arrange the
mounting bracket so that it does not block the top of your unit.
To view satellite lock status in your unit, click <HERE>.
<back to menu>
8.9) Master Reset
A master reset will clear everything in your nav unit.
All settings will be set to factory defaults.
All saved addresses will be erased.
The mileage log will be cleared.

9.1) STAA National Network
In 1982, the U.S. Congress passed the Surface Transportation Assistance Act, which allows
large trucks to operate on the Interstate highways and certain primary routes. This road system is
called the “National Network”.
When driving on the National Network, you can be reasonably assured of trouble-free road
access. But to make local deliveries, you will probably need to leave the National Network and
drive on secondary (local) roads. You must be careful to follow local regulations.
Any nav unit can guide you on the National Network (the Interstate highway system). It is when
you get onto secondary roads that the 7750 PLT will really come in handy. The 7750 PLT will
calculate a legal route for you to follow.
