7700 PRO
QUICK MANUAL
Thank you for purchasing the 7700 Pro.
The 7700 Pro has been designed to route your vehicle safely and legally, avoiding hazards
and legal restrictions such as low bridges and roads that are unsuitable for use by larger
vehicles. The 7700 Pro will create safe routes for you based on the attributes of your
vehicle and will alert you to any hazards if you should accidentally turn off that route for
any reason. In addition, The 7700 Pro will alert you to hazards if it is used without a route
programmed to ensure your chosen route is a safe one.
IMPORTANT!
It is the user’s responsibility to account for vehicle’s height , width, length, HAZMAT and
other restrictions when driving. Alaways follow all posted road signs and be aware of road
conditions when making driving decisions.
Please read the “Important Safety Information” section of this manual (pages 4-7) for
further safety information.

Important Safety Information
Before installing and using the Cobra 7700 Pro system, please read these general
warnings and precautions. Without reading this important safety information, the user
may be placed in a dangerous situation or may damage the unit before having any
practical use from it. It is strongly recommended to read this entire manual to be familiar
with the system’s features, and to know how to operate it.
WARNING SYMBOLS AND STATEMENTS
Please pay special attention to the WARNING symbols and statements in this manual.
WARNING Statements identify conditions that could result in personal injury or
loss of life.
WARNINGS:
• 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 think this 7700 Pro is a substitute 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
7700 Pro 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 if they suggest an
unsafe or illegal maneuver, would place the vehicle in an unsafe situation or would
route the vehicle into an area that could be unsafe.
• DO NOT depend on this 7700 Pro 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.
• DO NOT position the unit in a location that obstructs the driver’sview of the road,
instruments or controls to operate the vehicle.
• 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.
• DO NOT disassemble or modify the system; personal injury or damage could result. If
a problem occurs, stop using the system immediately and contact Cobra. Changes or
modifications to the system may void its compliance with FCC rules and make it illegal
to use.
• DO position the unit so the screen can be viewed with just a quick glance.
• DO set the volume at a level that will allow the hearing of outside traffic and
emergency services.
• DO NOT program this 7700 Pro 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.
• ONLY glance at the screen when necessary and safe to do so. Listen to the computer
voice guidance. If prolonged viewing is necessary, pull off the road to a safe location.

switchonthetoprightsideoftheunitfor2secondstoswitchonthedevice.
Power switch
1. Charging the internal battery
To begin, make sure the battery ON/OFF switch on the rear
of the unit is switched to “ON”. Although the 7700 Pro can
be charged using the cigarette lighter in your vehicle, a
complete charge is more easily achieved by using the AC
charger included. When new, you must fully charge the
battery in your 7700 Pro before use.
Plug the charger cable into the power
To charge the unit fully, connect the AC charger as
socket on the back of the 7700 Pro
indicated in the picture on the right. The battery light on
the 7700 Pro will illuminate and will take approximately
3 hours to charge. When the internal battery is fully
charged, the red LED will turn green. Once fully charged
thebatterywilllastapproximately2hoursduring
normal use.
Note: The new battery’s full performance is only
achieved after two or three complete charges and
discharges.
Plug the charger
into an AC outlet
CAUTION
THERE IS A RISK OF EXPLOSION IF THE BATTERY IS REPLACED WITH AN
UNAPPROVED TYPE. USING THE WRONG TYPE BATTERY MAY DAMAGE YOUR UNIT
AND INVALIDATE YOUR WARANTY. ONLY COBRA AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL SHOULD
REPLACE THE BATTERY. PLEASE DISPOSE OF USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO

3. Installing the 7700 Pro using the Windshield Suction Cup bracket
You can mount your 7700 Pro to the inside of your vehicles windshield using the
windshield bracket provided.
●
●
●
●
●
Clean the area where you wish to position the bracket
thoroughly with a high quality glass cleaner. This
allows a more secure seal on the windshield.
Assemble the suction cup bracket. Slide the mount
clip onto the end of the suction cup arm and tighten
both plastic nuts.
Place the suction cup and bracket on the windshield
and push the locking lever towards the
windshield to secure the bracket.
Adjust the angle of the bracket so that when the
unit is attached to it you can view the display and
operate the controls safely.
Position the 7700 Pro onto the bracket, by clipping
it on it as indicated. Remove the 7700 Pro by pulling
the tab and sliding the unit upwards and off
the bracket.

1. Starting Up
Once the battery is fully charged, it is time to perform the first Start Up.
●
Locking
lever
NOTE: Only use the cigarette lighter power cable provided with the 7700 Pro.
Using any other cigarette lighter power cable could damage your device and void
the warranty.
●
●
●
First make sure your vehicle is parked in as open a space as possible, clear of tall
trees and buildings so that the built in GPS antenna has a clear view of the sky above.
Next, make sure the Battery ON/OFF switch located on the back of the unit to the ‘ON’
position. Press and hold the standby power switch on the top right side of the unit for
2seconds.
While the 7700 Pro software is loading, a start-up display will be shown for just a
few seconds and then an ‘Information Screen’ will be displayed. Press the ‘I Agree’
button and the screen will display a section of a map.
The 7700 Pro needs to acquire a minimum of four satellites in order to work. Once this
has been achieved, the unit will ascertain your position and display a green arrow icon
on the on-screen map. The GPS signal strength will be shown to the bottom right hand
corner of the display. Your 7700 Pro is now ready to navigate.
As the GPS engine and antenna have never been used before, the first ‘Cold’ start
could take anywhere from 15 – 50 minutes to establish a satellite connection. Once
initialized, subsequent start ups will take less time and eventually should take only
a matter of minutes.
NOTE: Mounting your 7700 Pro in close proximity to a CB radio may interfere with
GPS reception. Should you encounter such interference, position your 7700 Pro as
far away from your CB radio as possible.
