ABOUT THE NAV ONE SYSTEM
Menu S Settings S System S Reset Factory Defaults
SMARTPOWER
Your unit is complete with a map of the entire United States
and Canada as well as a database of millions of points
of interest to help you navigate your vehicle.
With the SmartPower feature turned on, a NAV ONE unit plugged
into a power port that does not turn off with the ignition, will not
drain the vehicle’s battery. The factory setting is on.
Except for the Power and Custom function buttons, all the
controls are available with a few touches of the screen.
SmartPower shuts the system down when there is a combination
of no vehicle motion and no button press for 15 minutes.
However, do not rely entirely on the unit while driving and
keep in mind the accompanying Important Information.
With SmartPower off, the system continues to operate until it is
turned off with the Power button (or with the ignition if the power
port is connected to it).
MORE INFORMATION
These Operating Instructions combined with the intuitive
nature of the controls should have you up and running quickly.

Important Information
3
Your safety is important. Please read all warnings
and cautions before installing and using the Cobra
NAV ONE system.
WARNING
Avoid the following hazardous situations that could result in a
collision causing severe injury or death.
The user is responsible for operating this product
wisely. This NAV ONE unit is intended for use only
as a navigational aid and should not be relied upon
to the exclusion of other information. Be aware of
conditions around the vehicle and compare them to
the information provided by the NAV ONE system.
DO
NOT substitute this NAV ONE for personal judgment. The route
suggestions should never supersede any local traffic regulation,
personal judgment or knowledge of safe driving practices. Before
making any maneuvers suggested by the NAV ONE system (for
example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that the maneuver can be
legally and safely completed. Do not follow route suggestions that
would take the vehicle into an unsafe situation or locality.
DO
CAUTION
NOT program this NAV ONE while driving. Only a passenger
should operate controls or program the unit while the vehicle is
in motion. The driver should not program the system unless
the vehicle is parked in a safe location.
Observe the following precautions to avoid damage to the unit
or personal inconvenience.
This unit is not waterproof. Do not allow liquids to splash on
it nor expose it to rain during operation or transfer from vehicle
to vehicle.
DO
NOT depend on this NAV ONE system to locate emergency
services (such as police, fire stations, hospitals and clinics).
The database may not include all emergency service providers. Use
judgment and ask for directions in these situations.
The Global Positioning System is provided and operated by the
U.S. government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. That system is subject to changes, which could
affect the accuracy and performance of this NAV ONE unit.
DO
NOT disassemble or modify the system. If a problem occurs,
stop using the system immediately and contact Cobra.
The NAV ONE’s map database provides information on suggested
routes without regard to some factors that may affect the user’s
driving experience. For example, the system does not reflect all
road detours, closures or construction, some road characteristics
(such as road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions,
etc.), weather conditions and similar factors. Use personal
judgment or the navigation system’s detour function to
develop an alternate route if necessary.
DO
NOT be distracted by the NAV ONE. DO position the unit so it
can be seen at a glance when safe to do so. DO listen to the voice
guidance. DO set the volume so you can hear outside traffic and
emergency services alarms.
Installation

INSTALLATION
WARNING
Observe the following measures to prevent a collision or other
condition that could cause serious injury or death.
The NAV ONE can be easily mounted to the vehicle’s
windshield with the included bracket and suction cup.
Or, an alternative secure mounting can be used.
DO
NOT position the unit in a location that obstructs the driver’s
view of the road or vehicle instruments or controls.
DO
NOT mount the unit over airbag panels or within airbag
expansion spaces. The force of an expanding airbag can thrust
objects in its path toward the driver or passengers with
injurious result.
DO
NOT drive the vehicle unless the unit is securely attached to
the windshield with the supplied bracket and suction cup or is
fastened by other reliable means to keep it from becoming a
projectile hazard inside the vehicle in the event of a violent
maneuver or collision.
Put the unit where it is visible
at a glance.
Let the antenna “see” the sky.
NOTE
It is important that the NAV ONE antenna in the top of the unit can
“see” the sky. Radio signals from the GPS satellites are weak and
cannot penetrate solid portions of a vehicle’s structure.
Some states / provinces prohibit attachment of any articles to
windshields or side or rear windows. Drivers in these areas should
use the dash mounting disk or another secure mount.
When the NAV ONE has been unused for several days, or has been
moved more than 500 miles, it can take 15 minutes to acquire
satellites. Leaving the unit on for 20 minutes in this case will allow
faster acquisitions after that.
Users should determine if restrictions apply to jurisdictions where
they drive.
IMPORTANT: Check www.cobra.com for software updates.
To secure and connect the NAV ONE:
1. Clean the mounting area using window
cleaner or rubbing alcohol.
2. Separate the mounting bracket from
the unit.
3. Firmly press the suction cup against the
windshield by applying pressure to
the suction cup base.
4. Pull the lock lever back until it “clicks”.
Maintain firm pressure on the suction
cup base and then push the lock lever
down toward the base.
6. Attach the unit to the bracket by sliding
the slot in the bottom of the unit over
the bracket until the locking tab clicks.
To Remove Nav One:
Depress the locking tab and slide the
unit toward you to temporarily remove
the unit when the vehicle is parked to
prevent theft or heat damage.
7. Adjust the unit position using the knobs
and tighten securely.
The bracket can be left attached to
the windshield for quick reinstallation
of the unit.
8. If the unit will rest on the dash or might
contact it, apply the foam strip to the
bottom of the unit to protect the dash.
9. Plug the power cord into the unit and
the vehicle’s 12-volt power port.
5. Test the suction cup adhesion by pulling
firmly on the bracket. It should not wiggle.
