Welcome
Introduction
Thank you for choosing the GARMIN StreetPilot III. The StreetPilot III offers true turn-by-turn
navigation with its auto-routing feature. At the touch of a button, you now have access to the shortest
and fastest routes, turn directions, and estimated time of arrival at your intended destination. Along the
way, the StreetPilot III provides automated voice prompts, alerting you to necessary turns, distance to
upcoming turns, route deviation, and distance to the final destination.
The StreetPilot III is compact and portable. This dash-mounted unit can be operated by your
vehicle’s battery using the included 12-volt power adapter, or by six AA batteries. Voice commands
are clearly heard through a speaker which is built into the power adapter cable. The StreetPilot III
can easily be viewed in any lighting condition, due to its 4-inch, high resolution, 16-color display.
The unit’s built-in basemap provides detail for interstates, interstate exit data, highways, rivers and
lakes in the United States, Canada and Mexico (no exit data for Mexico), plus commonly used streets
in metropolitan areas. With the press of a button, the built-in basemap will provide turn-by-turn
guidance to a destination via interstates and highways. With downloaded maps from the MapSource
City Navigator CD-ROM, StreetPilot III provides turn-by-turn guidance down to residential street-level
detail.
About This Manual
Make sure you take the time to read the Quick Start Guide first to get acquainted with all of the
basic features of the StreetPilot III. After you have read the Quick Start Guide, you can read through this
owner’s manual in order to understand the operating features of the StreetPilot III in detail. This manual
is organized into three sections for your convenience. The Introduction Section provides FCC and
safety information and the table of contents. The Reference Section provides details about all of the
features of the StreetPilot III, organized by topic. The Appendices contain information on items such as
accessories, specifications, and an index organized by subject.
Welcome
The StreetPilot III uses GPS technology in order to
find your precise location. GPS stands for Global
Positioning System, a group of 24 satellites, circling the earth twice a day, at an altitude of
about 12,000 miles. The satellites transmit very
low power radio signals containing position
and time information, allowing anyone with
a GPS receiver to determine their location
on the earth within 100 meters or better.
For more detailed information regarding GPS,
we have prepared a booklet called “GPS
Guide for Beginners” which is available
to you from our web site at www.garmin.com.

Safety Warnings and Cautions—Read This First!
Introduction
Warnings and Cautions
Your StreetPilot III is equipped with a ‘Safe Mode’
feature to improve driver safety. By default, this
feature is enabled, but can be turned off to
allow a passenger to operate the unit. When
your vehicle is moving, Safe Mode disables
certain StreetPilot III functions which require
significant operator attention and may become a
distraction to use while driving. See page 46 for details.
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the owner/operator of the
StreetPilot III to place and secure the GPS unit so that it will not interfere with the vehicle operating
controls and safety devices, obstruct the driver’s view of driving conditions, or cause damage or
personal injury in the event of an accident. Do not mount the StreetPilot III over airbag panels or
in the field of airbag deployment. Airbags expand with a rapid force that can propel objects in their
path towards the vehicle driver or passengers causing possible injury. Refer to airbag safety precautions
contained in the vehicle owner’s manual. Do not mount the StreetPilot III in a place where the driver
or passengers are likely to impact it in an accident or collision. The mounting hardware provided by
GARMIN is not warranted against collision damage or the consequences thereof.
WARNING: When used in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the driver of the vehicle to
operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain full surveillance of all driving conditions at all times,
and not become distracted by the StreetPilot III to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is unsafe
to operate the controls of the StreetPilot III while you are driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle
equipped with a StreetPilot III to pay full attention to operation of the vehicle and road conditions
while the vehicle is in motion could result in an accident or collision with property damage and
personal injury.
Do Not Mount Where Driver’s Field
of Vision is Blocked

CAUTION: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the government of the United
States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes
that could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. Although the StreetPilot III is
a precision NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
Introduction
Map Data
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of GARMIN is to provide customers with the
most complete and accurate cartography that is available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private data sources, which we identify as required in product literature
and copyright messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or
incomplete data to some degree. This is particularly true outside the United States, where complete and
accurate digital data is either not available or prohibitively expensive.
CAUTION: IT IS THE USER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THIS PRODUCT PRUDENTLY. THIS
PRODUCT IS INTENDED TO BE USED ONLY AS A TRAVEL AID AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR
ANY PURPOSE REQUIRING PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF DIRECTION, DISTANCE, LOCATION,
OR TOPOGRAPHY. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT BE USED TO DETERMINE GROUND PROXIMITY FOR AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION.
Because the map data may not be perfect, it will help
at times to cross-check the unit’s map with your actual
surroundings to confirm that you are arriving at the exact
destination.

Map Scale
The Map Page is the main operating page of the StreetPilot III. It graphically shows you map details,
your current location, and marks your route to a destination with a magenta colored route line. It tells
you what direction to go or the direction you are traveling. It tells you your speed, the distance you
have traveled, or the distance to the next turn, and the time remaining before reaching the next turn. If
the StreetPilot III has yet to calculate your location, there is a flashing question mark over the vehicle
pointer and the status text displays, ‘Acquiring Satellites’.
The map can be displayed in a ‘square’ or
‘wide’ configuration for custom viewing. The square
configuration is shown to the left, the wide
configuration is shown above. Both show Navigation
Information. For maximum map display, you can select
‘Full Screen Map’. This section of the manual discusses
how to select between the displays.
The map display shows your present position and direction of movement as a triangular ‘Position
Icon’ in the center of the map. The map display also shows the map scale and geographic details
such as lakes, rivers, highways, and towns. You can use the IN and OUT keys to change the map
scale to show more map area with less detail, or less map area with more detail. Press and hold to
zoom the map scale rapidly.

Reference
When you are not driving on roads that are present in the maps, you may see a circle drawn
around the position pointer. This is an ‘accuracy circle’. The StreetPilot III uses both map resolution
and GPS accuracy in defining your location to a point within this “accuracy circle”. The smaller the
circle, the more accurate your location. More detailed map features as well as information about those
features can be displayed using a data card containing map data transferred from a GARMIN MapSource
CD-ROM. When you zoom into smaller map scales, “MapSource” will appear directly below the map
scale indicating that MapSource data is being used to draw a more detailed map.
The Map Page
Map Page Navigation Information
The following navigation information can be displayed on the Map Page:
Clear driving instructions are displayed when you are
navigating a route.
Current Direction (N, S, E, or W) - Cardinal letters indicate the direction you are traveling when
not navigating a route. This is not displayed when you are navigating.
Direction To Go (Arrow) - An arrow that points to the next turn in the route when moving
on an active route.
Speed - Your rate of travel which can be displayed in miles per hour or kilometers per hour.
Distance To Go - When navigating a Route, the distance remaining to reach the next turn will be
displayed. When not navigating a Route, this field is not displayed.
Time To Go - When navigating a Route, the time to go before reaching the next turn is displayed.
When not navigating a Route, the time for the current time zone is displayed in either 12 or 24
hour format.
Your vehicle speed can be displayed in miles per hour or
kilometers per hour.
Driving Instructions - Given in text format only when you are navigating a route. When you are
not navigating, the next intersection is displayed.

Zooming, Panning and Pointing
There are three main actions you can perform on the Map Page: zooming, panning, and pointing.
The map display has 24 map scales (from 120 feet to 800 miles) which are selected by pressing
the IN and OUT zoom keys. The current map scale is indicated in the bottom left corner of the
map display.
Reference
The Map Page
To change the map scale:
1. Press the IN zoom key to see a smaller area with more detail.
2. Press the OUT zoom key to see a larger area with less detail.
When zoomed in to smaller map areas, ‘overzoom’ appears directly below the map scale. This
indicates the current scale exceeds the optimum resolution of available map detail. Extra caution should
be used in ‘overzoom’ since some detail, such as roads, are drawn using widely spaced points and the
actual layout of these details may differ from the map presentation.
The Map Page showing the panning arrow and a
highlighted map feature or point of interest.
Panning allows you to move the map in order to view areas beyond the current map area.
This provides a ‘look ahead’ capability which is particularly useful with smaller map areas.
To pan, use the ROCKER KEYPAD to move the map in any direction, including diagonally.
Once you are finished with panning, you can quickly remove the panning arrow and re-center
the map on your present position by pressing the QUIT key.
As you begin to pan the map, a pointer appears. This map pointer will serve as a target marker
for the map. If you change the scale, the map is redrawn with the pointer at the center. When the
pointer is placed on an object, the name of that object will be highlighted. (If the name wasn’t originally
displayed, it will appear when the pointer is placed on the object.) This feature applies to everything
displayed on the map except route lines and track log data. When a waypoint name is highlighted, you
can review information about the waypoint, list waypoint options, or execute a ‘Route to It’ directly
from the Map Page.

To select an on-screen location with the panning pointer:
1. Use the ROCKER KEYPAD to highlight the desired item.
The Map Page
2. To view information for the selected item, press ENTER.
3. To exit the information pages, press QUIT.
The ‘Route to It’ function can be used anywhere on the map. If nothing currently exists at the
map pointer position, a new waypoint will be created at the pointer’s location before the ‘Route to
It’ is started. You can also create a waypoint on the Map Page without selecting it as a ‘Route to It’
destination.
To create a new waypoint from the Map Page:
Once the ‘Waypoint Created’ Page appears, the waypoint
is stored in memory.
1. Use the ROCKER KEYPAD to point to the desired location on the map and press ENTER briefly.
A ‘Waypoint Created Page’ will appear, with an auto-assigned name (3-digit number) for the
waypoint.
2. You can delete the waypoint, show it on the map, or Route to It. Select the desired option and
press ENTER.
Once you are finished with panning, you can quickly remove the panning arrow and re-center
the map on your present position by pressing the QUIT key.
The ‘Waypoint Created’ Page appears with a default
three digit number for its name which can be changed to
something a little more meaningful (up to 10 characters

Trip Information Page
The third main page is the Trip Information Page. If you are making a long trip, you will find the
Trip Information Page very useful. It indicates your current speed and many helpful statistics about
your trip. The following are useful suggestions to aid in maximizing the use of the Trip Information
Page:
Be certain to reset the Trip Computer before beginning the trip. Instructions on resetting will follow.
If you make frequent stops, leave the StreetPilot III powered on and receiving satellites. This will allow
the unit to accurately measure elapsed time during the trip. However, some vehicles disconnect power
to the cigarette lighter when the ignition is turned off. In order to continue receiving satellites, use batteries and the cigarette lighter adapter for your trip. When external power is removed, the unit will then
ask, with a screen prompt, if it can use the batteries when vehicle power is not available.
The Trip Information Page.
The following trip information is displayed on the Trip Information Page:
Driving Status Information - Displayed at the top of the page. Shows the next intersection (the
crossroad name) or exit (if you are on an interstate) if one is approaching. Otherwise it tells you
what road you are on.
Speed - This is the current vehicle speed.
Odometer - A running total of distance traveled, based upon the distance between second-by-second
location readings, since the Trip Computer was last reset.
Current Direction - Displayed to the right of the speed.
Battery power is shown in the upper left corner of the
Trip Information Page. When it turns red, its time to
replace the batteries.
Power/Battery - Displayed to the left of the odometer. If the StreetPilot III is using internal AA
batteries, a battery strength bar is shown (above the bar is a label, Battery Power). Notice the shaded
area of the bar. The farther right the shading extends, the more battery power remaining. When
operating on batteries, the bar and the label turn red when power is low (20% or less). When operating
from an external power source, a power plug symbol is shown along with the label, External Power.

Marking Your Location as a Waypoint
Marking Waypoints
It is useful to mark a location, so that you can drive to it again later. These locations are called
‘Waypoints’. The StreetPilot III can hold up to 500 Waypoints.
To mark your location as a Waypoint:
1. Press and hold ENTER. The ‘Waypoint Marked’ page appears, with a default three-digit name for the
new Waypoint in the upper-left portion of the page. The StreetPilot III captures the location from the
instant at which you pressed ENTER, so you do not need to be concerned about moving around or
losing satellite reception, your Waypoint is safely stored.
To rename the Waypoint:
1. Use the ROCKER KEYPAD to select the name and press ENTER.
A waypoint is stored in memory as soon as the
‘Waypoint Marked’ Page appears.
2. Enter the new waypoint name using the ROCKER KEYPAD, and press ENTER.
Each waypoint may also be assigned a custom waypoint symbol for easy recognition on the Map
Page.
To change the Waypoint symbol:

GPS Information Page
The GPS Information Page provides a visual reference of GPS receiver functions, including current
satellite coverage, receiver status, and position accuracy. As the StreetPilot III locks onto satellites, a
signal strength bar will appear for each satellite in view, with the appropriate satellite number (from
01-32) underneath each bar. The progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
GPS Information Page
• No Signal Strength Bar- the receiver is looking for the satellite(s) indicated. The corresponding
number(s) on the sky view is not highlighted.
• Hollow Signal Strength Bar- the receiver has found the satellite and is collecting data.
• Solid Signal Strength Bar- the receiver has collected the necessary data and the satellite(s) is ready
for use. The corresponding number(s) on the sky view is highlighted.
Each satellite has a 30-second data transmission that must be collected (hollow signal strength bar,
as described above) before that satellite may be used for navigation (solid signal strength bar). Once
a fix has been calculated, the StreetPilot III will then update your position, ground track, and ground
speed by selecting and using the best satellites in view.
A hollow bar (number 17) indicates the receiver has
found the satellite and is collecting data.
Sky View and Signal Strength Bars
The sky view and signal strength bars give you an indication of what satellites are currently visible,
which satellites are being used to calculate a position fix, and the signal quality. The sky view shows
a “bird’s eye” view of each satellite’s position relative to the unit’s last known position. The outer circle
represents the horizon in all directions (with cardinal heading references). The inner circle represents
an elevation of 45° above the horizon. Any satellite depicted near the center is directly overhead. You
can use the sky view to help determine if any satellites are being blocked, and whether you have a
current position fix (indicated by ‘2D Navigation’ or ‘3D Navigation’ in the status field). You can also
set the sky view to a ‘Track Up’ configuration (instead of ‘North Up’), causing the top of the sky view
to align to your current track heading.
Solid bars indicate the receiver has collected the
necessary information and the satellite is ready for use.

at the top left corner of the page. The status will be shown as one of the following conditions:
Searching Sky- the StreetPilot III is looking for any available satellites in view.
AutoLocate- the StreetPilot III is initializing and collecting new almanac data. This process can take up
to five minutes, depending on the satellites currently in view.
Acquiring- the receiver is collecting data from available satellites, but has not collected enough data
to calculate a position fix.
‘Acquiring Sats’ means the receiver is collecting data
from available satellites but has not collected enough
data to calculate a position fix.
2D Navigation- at least three satellites with good geometry have been locked onto and a twodimensional position fix (latitude and longitude) is being calculated. ‘2D Diff’ will appear when you are
receiving DGPS corrections with a two-dimensional position.
3D Navigation- at least four satellites with good geometry have been locked onto, and your position is
now being calculated in latitude, longitude and elevation. ‘3D Diff’ will appear when you are receiving
DGPS corrections with a three-dimensional position.
Poor GPS Coverage- the receiver isn’t tracking enough satellites for a 2D or 3D fix due to bad satellite
geometry or due to a shaded antenna (driving between buildings, etc.)
Not Usable- the receiver is unusable, possibly due to incorrect initialization or abnormal satellite
conditions. Turn the unit off and back on to reset, and reinitialize the receiver if necessary.
GPS is Off- the unit is being used indoors and cannot be used for navigation. When the unit is being
used indoors, battery life is saved since the GPS receiver is turned off.
‘GPS Is Off’ tells you the unit is being used indoors and
cannot be used for navigation.

‘Poor Satellite Reception’ Menu
If no satellites are received for several minutes (or an insufficient number of satellites are received
to determine a position fix) a message will appear, prompting you to update your approximate location
or turn off the GPS for indoor use. Updating your approximate location will ensure the StreetPilot III is
searching for the correct satellites, and is useful if you have traveled over 500 miles with the unit turned
off. If the unit has been stored without batteries and the displayed date is incorrect, the StreetPilot III
will not know the current positions of the GPS satellites. Selecting ‘Stored w/o Batteries’ will tell the
unit to search for any satellites that it can find.
Reference
GPS Information Page
The ‘Poor Satellite Reception’ prompt may appear when you first use your StreetPilot III. The
prompt may also appear during normal use if the antenna is shaded or when the unit is used indoors.
Accuracy
The GPS Information Page indicates the accuracy of the position fix. See Appendix E for the
StreetPilot III performance specifications which include accuracy.
The ‘Poor Satellite Reception’ Menu gives you several
options when an insufficient number of satellites are
received to determine a position fix.
The sun and moon icons on the satellite skyview are
for reference (notice that the icons are grayed if the
sun/moon is below the horizon). You can see the sunrise
and sunset times for your current location and date on
the Time Setup Page.

displayed). The following Options are available:
• Track Up
• New Elevation
• New Location
Track Up- changes the sky view display from ‘North Up’ orientation to align to current direction of
travel (ground track). If ‘Track Up’ is selected, ‘North Up’ will appear as an option instead.
To change the sky view orientation:
Selecting ‘North Up’ will display the sky view with
North at the top.
1. Use the ROCKER KEYPAD to highlight ‘Track Up’ (or ‘North Up’) and press ENTER.
New Location- forces the StreetPilot III to search for any available satellite to determine its position.
This option is useful if you’ve relocated a long distance (greater than 500 miles) from the last location
the StreetPilot III was used. In such instances, without initialization, the StreetPilot III may otherwise
be looking for the wrong group of satellites.
To select New Location, highlight ‘New Location’ and press ENTER.
New Elevation- allows you to designate your approximate elevation, when the StreetPilot III is
acquiring satellites or navigating within a two-dimensional position. By default, 2D navigation will
attempt to use the last known elevation. If the elevation shown is off by several hundred feet (or more),
manually entering your approximate elevation will enable the receiver to more accurately determine
a position fix.
Selecting ‘Track Up’ will automatically rotate the sky
view to keep your current direction of travel at the top
of the display.
To enter an elevation:
1. Use the ROCKER KEYPAD to Highlight ‘New Elevation’ and press ENTER.

Routing File Tab
Reference
The Routing Tab allows you to customize the routing features of the StreetPilot III.
System Setup
Route Preference—Determines what criteria are used for finding the route to your destination. The
following options are available:
• Faster Time: This setting causes time to be used as the criteria for calculating your route. The routes
calculated with this setting will be faster to drive but may be longer in distance.
• Shorter Distance: This setting causes distance to be used as the criteria for calculating your route. The
routes calculated with this setting will be shorter in distance but may take more time to drive.
• Off Road: This setting causes your route to be a direct line from you to your destination. This may be
useful outside of detailed map coverage areas.
The ‘Ask Me My Preference’ setting can also be changed
from the Routing File Tab.
Calculation Method—Allows you to control how thoroughly the StreetPilot III searches for the perfect
route. There is a trade-off here between the length of time it takes to find a route and the quality
of that route (or how close to the ideal route as determined by your Route Preference setting). The
following options are available:
•Quickest Calculation: This will give you the fastest results, minimizing the time you have to wait.
•Best Route: This will cause route calculations to take somewhat longer, but you will get the best
route.
Using the ‘Calculate Routes For’ option allows you to
take full advantage of the routing information contained
in the City Navigator Maps for planning the most efficient route for your type of vehicle.
43
OM REV B.indd
43
6/28/01, 9:43 AM
Reference
Ask Me My Preference—Determines whether or not you will be prompted before route calculations to allow you to change your current Route Preference (Faster, Shorter, or Off Road). This
setting can also be changed from Yes to No from the Route Preference page. The following options
are available:
System Setup
• Yes: This setting results in the Route Preference page being displayed before route calculations. If
you frequently have a different preference for your routes, this is the setting you want.
• No: This setting skips the Route Preference page before route calculations. The StreetPilot III will
use your current Route Preference for all route calculations. If you usually have the same preference
for your routes, this is the setting you want.
U-Turns can be avoided when planning your route.
Calculate Routes For—Lets you take full advantage of the routing information built into the City
Navigator maps. Some roads have vehicle-based restrictions associated with them. For example, a
street or gate may be accessible by emergency vehicles only. Or a residential street may not allow
commercial trucking traffic. By specifying what vehicle type you are driving, you can avoid getting
routed somewhere that you cannot legally go. Likewise, it may give you access to roads or turns that
wouldn’t be available to normal traffic. The following options are available:
Routes can be calculated for emergency-type vehicles.
• Car/Motorcycle: Self-explanatory.
• Truck: Large semi-tractor/trailer.
• Bus: Self-Explanatory.
• Emergency: Ambulance, Fire, Police, etc.
• Taxi: Self-Explanatory.
• Delivery: Delivery Vehicles
• Bicycle: This will restrict you from taking interstates and major highways.
• Pedestrian: Self-Explanatory.

System Setup
Toll roads: If checked, the StreetPilot III will avoid entering toll roads, but will do so if the
alternatives take you too far out of your way.
Highways: If checked, the StreetPilot III will avoid interstates and major highways, but will do so if
the alternatives take you too far out of your way.
Time File Tab
Time Format - Allows you to choose from a 12 or 24 hour time format. When you select the 12
hour time format, the clock will read like a standard clock with 12 hour AM and PM cycles. The 24
hour option sets the clock to display a 24 hour cycle (Military Time).
Toll Roads can be avoided when planning your route.
Time Zone - Can be set to one of the U.S. Time Zones, or by selecting ‘Other’ you can enter the
UTC Time Offset for any other time zone. Refer to the instructions for setting UTC Time Offset and
the Time Offset Chart on page 55.
Daylight Savings Time - Can be turned On or Off or set to Automatic.
Current Date and Current Time Are determined by the satellites being received and can not be
changed.
Remember that current date and time are determined by
the satellites and cannot be changed.
