Making Travel Easier
GPS Basics
Your GPS 100 S receiver makes travel easier through three major ways:
GoTo a Waypoint – The GPS 100 S guides you in a straight line
to a single point. (See 1 and 2 )
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based radionavigation system. It consists of 24 satellites, which orbit the
Earth at an altitude of approximately 11,000 miles, and
ground stations. GPS provides users with accurate information
on position, velocity and time. This is available anywhere in
the world and in most weather conditions.
Navigate a Route – The GPS 100 gives you the opportunity to
select two or more waypoints to create a route. You can then use
your GPS 100 S to guide you in a straight line from point to point
through your stored route. (See 3 and 4 )

Route On
Map Page
4 Navigate
Route on
Gauges Page
Navigate a Track – The GPS 100 S automatically keeps a record
of your progress as you travel and gives you a graphic representation or
“track log” of the path or track you have taken. You can use the track
log to create a track that you can recall for navigation. The track can be
navigated in the forward or the reverse direction of the original travel.
(See 5 and 6 )
This manual is designed to help you take advantage of these and our
many other features. We suggest that you begin by reading the “General
Information” and “System Sections” first. If you are not familiar with the
satellite navigation technology, these will help you understand the basics.
Then, take your GPS receiver outside and practice while you read the
sections on how to operate it.

G P S G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
GPS was initiated in 1973 to reduce the proliferation of
navigation aids by the United States Department of Defense.
By creating a robust system that overcame the limitations of
many previously existing navigation systems, GPS became
attractive to a broader spectrum of users. GPS has been
successful in classic applications such as aviation and marine
navigation since it was first developed. Since then, it has
become useful for a wide range of people because its
capabilities are accessible using small, affordable equipment.
What was once available only in very expensive equipment,
Cobra Electronics Corporation™ brings to you with our highquality line of affordable handheld GPS receivers
How GPS Works
GPS uses a global network of 24 satellites that transmit radio
signals to earth from high earth orbit. Thankfully for users,
the United States has offered free use of the system to the
international community. Many international user groups have
accepted GPS as the core for an international civil satellite
navigation capability.
GPS service provides users with extremely accurate
positioning information anywhere on or near the surface of
the earth. To accomplish this, each of the 24 satellites emits
signals to receivers below. GPS determines location by
computing the difference between the time that a signal is
sent and the time it is received. GPS satellites carry atomic
clocks that provide extremely accurate time information. The
time information is placed in the codes broadcast by the
1
satellite so that a receiver can continuously determine the
time the signal was broadcast. The signal contains data
that your GPS receiver uses to compute the locations of the
satellites and to make other adjustments needed for accurate
positioning. Your GPS receiver uses the time difference
between the time of signal reception and the broadcast time
to compute the distance, or range, from the receiver to the
satellite. With information about the ranges to four satellites
and the location of each satellite when the signal was sent,
your receiver can compute its own three-dimensional position:
latitude, longitude, and altitude. People think of GPS as
having three segments: the control, space and user
segments. What follows is a little information about
each segment.
Control Segment
The Control Segment of GPS consists of the Master Control
Station, Monitor Stations and Ground Antennas.
The one master control station, located at Falcon Air Force
Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA is responsible for
overall management of the remote monitoring and
transmission sites. As the center for support operations, it
calculates any position or clock errors for each individual
satellite, based on information received from the monitor
stations. Then it "orders" the appropriate ground antennas to
relay the corrective information back to that satellite.
Five monitor stations are located at Falcon Air Force Base in
Colorado, Hawaii, Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean,
Diego Garcia Atoll in the Indian Ocean and Kwajalein Island in
the South Pacific Ocean. Each of the monitor stations checks
the exact altitude, position, speed and overall health of the
orbiting satellites. The control segment uses measurements
collected by the monitor stations to predict each satellite's
orbit and clock. The prediction data is up-linked, or
transmitted, to the satellites for transmission back to the
continued
2
G P S G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
users. The control segment also ensures that the
GPS satellite orbits and clocks remain as designed. A
station can track up to 11 satellites at a time. Each station
performs this "check-up" twice a day, as the satellites
complete their journeys around the earth. Noted variations,
such as those caused by the gravity of the moon and sun and
the pressure of solar radiation, are passed along to the
master control station.
The last of the three pieces of the control segment of GPS
are the ground antennas. Ground antennas monitor and track
the satellites from horizon to horizon. They also transmit
correction information to individual satellites.
Space Segment
The space segment includes the satellites and the Delta
rockets that launch the satellites from Cape Canaveral in
Florida. GPS satellites fly in circular orbits at an altitude of
10,900 miles (17,500 km) and with a period of 12 hours.
The orbits are tilted to the earth's equator by 55 degrees to
ensure coverage of the polar regions. Powered by solar cells,
the satellites continuously orient themselves to point their
solar panels toward the sun and their antenna toward the
earth. Each of the 24 satellites, positioned in 6 orbital
planes, circles the earth twice a day.
The satellites are composed of three major subsystems: Solar
Panels, Internal Components and External Components.
Solar Panels
Each satellite is equipped with solar array panels. These
panels capture energy from the sun, which provides
power for the satellite throughout its life.
Internal Components
Internal components are subsystems such as atomic
clocks and radio transmitters. Each satellite contains four
atomic clocks. These clocks are accurate to a nanosecond
3
or a billionth of a second. The atomic clocks within the
satellites are so accurate because even an extremely
small time inaccuracy would translate into a extremely
large position difference (1/100 of a second inaccuracy
translates to a position difference of 1,860 miles to any
GPS receiver).
External Components
The exterior of the GPS satellite has a variety of
antennas. The signals generated by the radio transmitter
are sent to your GPS receiver via L-band antennas.
Another component of the satellite is the radio
transmitter, which generates the signal. Each of the 24
satellites transmits its own unique code in the signal.
User Segment
You and your GPS receiver are a part of the user segment
along with many other private individuals and military
personnel and their GPS receivers. Military GPS equipment
has been integrated into fighters, bombers, tankers,
helicopters, ships, submarines, tanks, jeeps and soldiers'
equipment. GPS is also used on Space Shuttles.
Cutting-edge Satellite navigation technology coupled with
your GPS receiver can help overcome many of the hardships
and hazards associated with recreation. Your GPS receiver
allows you to go practically anywhere with confidence
knowing precisely where you are at all times. With your
GPS receiver, you will be able to record accurately any
location and return to that precise spot time and again,
any time, anywhere.

Navigating with the GPS 100 S
The Five Main Pages
Your GPS 100 S receives signals from Global Positioning System satellites
that are in fixed orbits (stationary relative to the ground) around the earth.
By acquiring – or locking onto – the signals from at least three satellites,
your unit can use triangulation to precisely determine your current position,
elevation above sea level and bearing (the direction you are traveling). As you
travel, the unit automatically acquires the strongest satellite signals available
at your current location. By becoming familiar with the unit’s basic operating
features, you will be able to use its powerful navigational capabilities.
In the following sections of this manual, you will learn how to use five main
pages to access all the features of your GPS 100 S:
Waypoint 1
A waypoint is a specific location that you ask the unit to record. In this
manual, you will learn how to mark your current location as a waypoint, or
set the coordinates for a waypoint anywhere in the world. You can create
and store up to 500 waypoints. You can have
the unit show you the direction of travel to an individual waypoint, or
how to navigate along a series of waypoints.
Track 2
Your GPS 100 S automatically keeps a record of your travel, called a track. The
unit shows you a map-like picture of your track. You can create and store up
to 10 different tracks. Each track can be recalled and used for navigation as
the unit shows you how to retrace the track again, either forward or in the
reverse direction. When traveling in unfamiliar territory, this is a quick and easy
way to make sure you always know how to get back to your starting point.
Route 3
A route is a series of waypoints which you choose to navigate in a specific
sequence. Up to 50 waypoints may be stored in a route. Once you have created
a route, your GPS 100 S will guide you from waypoint to waypoint. As you
reach each waypoint, the unit automatically begins navigating to the next one.
Trip Meter 4
Along with the navigational features, the trip meter in your GPS 100 S
keeps accurate time, allowing it to precisely calculate your speed of travel,
average speed throughout your trip and estimated time of arrival (ETA) if
you have chosen a destination.

Sources of Interference / Errors:
What is WAAS?
About North Reference
GPS receivers have the potential for position errors due to
interference, primarily from the following sources:
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is a GPS-based
navigation system that provides precision above and beyond
what GPS can do on its own. WAAS was designed to improve
the accuracy and ensure the integrity of information coming
from GPS satellites.
The vertical grid lines on any map can be aligned in one of
three different ways.
Ionosphere and troposphere delays
The satellite signal slows as it passes through the atmosphere.
The system uses a built-in model that calculates an average
– though not exact – amount of delay.
Signal multi-path
This occurs when the GPS signal is reflected off objects such
as tall buildings before it reaches the receiver. This increases
the travel time of the signal, causing errors.
Receiver clock errors
The built-in clock can have very slight timing errors.
Orbital errors
Also known as ephemeris errors, these are inaccuracies of the
satellite’s reported location.
Most common error
Most common error is not having a clear view of the sky, or
being under very cloudy conditions, when a satellite signal
may not be received.
Number of satellites visible
The more satellites the receiver can see, the better the
accuracy. Buildings, terrain, electronic interference or even
dense foliage can block signal reception, resulting in position
errors or possibly no position reading at all. In general, the
clearer the view of the sky is at your location, the better
the reception will be. GPS receivers will not work indoors,
underwater or underground.
Due to the errors that might occur, it is recommended that
the serious navigator use a second navigational tool, such as
a magnetic compass or map.
41
When satellite lock is lost
Whenever satellite lock is lost, the following animation
sequence appears onscreen and continues to loop until
satellite lock is re-acquired.
When GPS is turned Off
Whenever GPS is turned Off, the following animation
sequence occurs and continues to loop until search is
activated by user.
WAAS is a network of 25 ground reference stations that
cover the entire U.S. plus parts of Canada and Mexico.
Implemented by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
for aviation users, these reference stations are located at
precisely surveyed spots and compare GPS distance
measurements to known values. When the WAAS signal is
available, WAAS-capable receivers typically have a much
higher accuracy than non-WAAS units.
What is a Map Datum?
Also, all data fields (except for power status data
fields) appear blank until GPS is turned On and
satellite lock is re-acquired.
“True North” means that the vertical lines are aligned with
the geographic north pole. This is the most common method
of orienting maps.
“Magnetic North” means that the vertical lines are aligned
in the direction indicated as north by a compass, which can
differ from True North to varying amounts, depending on
where you are on the earth. (This difference is called
“inclination”and “declination.”)
“Grid North” refers to the direction in which the straight lines
on a map are actually aligned, which may be slightly different
from True North, because the rounded surface of the earth
can not be accurately depicted on the flat surface of a map.
Maps and charts are essentially grids created from a starting
reference point called a “datum.” Many maps being used
today were originally created decades ago. Over the years,
technology has allowed us to improve our surveying skills
and create more accurate maps. However, there is still a
need to adapt GPS receivers to use with older maps.
Most navigational charts and maps will have the datum listed.
Cobra Electronics Corporation™ GPS receivers include up to 100
map datums that allow you to switch to a setting that matches
your map. The most common US map datums are World
Geodetic System 1984 (WGS 84), North American Datum
1983 (NAD 83) and North American Datum 1927 (NAD 27)
NOTE: Using a map datum that does not match the chart
you are using can result in significant differences in position
information.
