The Navigation software is not a substitute for your personal judgment. The
route suggestions should never supersede any local traffic regulation or your
personal judgment and /or knowledge of safe driving practices. Prior to
completing any maneuvers suggested by your Navigation software (for example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that you can legally and safely complete the
maneuver. Do not follow route suggestions if they direct you to perform an
unsafe or illegal maneuver, would place you in an unsafe situation, or would
route you into an area that you consider unsafe.
Glance at the screen only when necessary and safe to do so. Let the computer
voice guide you. If prolonged viewing is necessary, pull off the road to a safe

road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions, etc.), temporary
traffic congestion, weather conditions, and similar factors.

California, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions.
Navigation software provides turn-by-turn visual and voice assistance to direct
you to your selected destination. The software quickly calculates step-by-step
directions to any destination available on the included navigation map.
The Navigation software uses Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites, and
a digital roadway map database to calculate and display travel directions. The
system’s GPS antenna receives signals from a constellation of 24 satellites
orbiting the earth and uses the strongest of signals, to determine your position
to within meters.
Vehicle Position
The Navigation software’s computer considers vehicle speed and heading
changes, together with longitude and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on a digital map.
Signals from GPS satellites are used to determine the vehicle location. Three
(good) or four (best) satellites must be received to accurately determine
location. The GPS reception status is indicated by the GPS symbol on the map.
Map and Information Database
The map database used by your Navigation software was created using
high-resolution aerial and land based data collection.
Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While the database was judged to
be as accurate as possible at the time of its release, a map database can never
be 100% accurate. Road information that is maintained in the map databases,
such as turn restrictions or road names may change over time.
Quick Start
Follow these four easy steps and you are on your way.
NOTE: Before operating your Navigation software, please carefully read

Some POI categories may not be available in some areas and not all possible
POI’s may be listed for all categories. For example, although the “Restaurant”
category is very extensive, it is only as current as the map database information.
Several categories restrict the search radius as well to minimize the search time.
Since businesses change over time, so will the accuracy of the points of interest
in your navigation map. To have the most accurate map database, annual map
database updating is recommended.
