Operating mode of your navigation system
OnCourse Navigator
The time of complicated and frustrating inquiries on the right way
in folded maps is over. From now on OnCourse Navigator, your
navigation system, will guide you, based on satellite information,
quickly and safely to your destination.
Scope of services
With OnCourse Navigator you will not only arrive quickly and
safely at your destination. You may also
Ù record a logbook,
Ù use the addresses in Microsoft Outlook for navigation,
Ù enter several route points,
Ù define your own areas and corridors of the base map.
GPS-based
navigation
Based on satellites the Global Positioning System (GPS)
determines your current geographical position. The GPS has
originally been developed as a weapon guidance system for the
American forces.
Operating mode of
the GPS
The GPS is based on 24 satellites, which are in orbit round the
earth. They are permanently emitting the time and their current
position. The GPS receiver receives this information and
calculates the longitude and the latitude of its own actual
position.
The signals of at least three satellites are needed to determine
the longitude and the latitude. With the signals of at least four
satellites the elevation may be calculated, too. The determination
has an accuracy of about 3 yards.

Operating mode of
your navigation
system
The so-called base map (e.g. of USA and Canada) and a software
designed for exporting extracts of this base map are installed on
your PC (if you have purchased the version with 4 CD-ROMs). Via
ActiveSync you may transmit areas of the base map to your
Pocket PC. Itinerary planning may be done as well on your PC as
on your Pocket PC.
Notice: As your Pocket PC disposes of limited memory (64MB in
most of the cases) you may transmit only areas of the base map.
If you dispose of a 256MB storage card you may transmit e.g. a
map that covers several Federal States of the United States to
your Pocket PC.
On your Pocket PC, you may use the map for navigation by
defining the destination. The software communicates with the
GPS receiver (via connection cable or via Bluetooth) to determine
your current position.

Initializing the GPS receiver
Initialization of the
GPS receiver
The initialization process of the GPS receiver starts automatically.
Within 15 seconds the color of the GPS icon in OnCourse
Navigator changes from red (No GPS signal) to orange (GPS
signals insufficient). The number on the GPS icon indicates the
number of satellites from which signals are being received. When
the signals of more than 3 satellites are being received, the GPS
icon becomes green (GPS ready). This process may take about
20 minutes. When the GPS icon becomes green earlier, it would
be good to leave the GPS receiver turned on for about 15 more
minutes in order to grant its correct operation.
The initialization process is finished when the reception of more
than 3 satellites is indicated after about 20 seconds.
Notice: This initialization process must be carried out only once.
The other times, the GPS receiver will be ready within about one
minute.
Notice: When the GPS receiver is connected to the power supply
for the first time, leave it connected for about 2 hours in order to
charge its battery.
Notice: A new initialization may become necessary when the
GPS receiver has not been in use. In this case, the initialization
process would take about 10 minutes.
Attention: Disconnect the receiver from the power supply when
you are leaving the car parked for a longer period. Failure to do
so might result in a flat battery as the receiver consumes
electricity permanently.
For details on the operation of your GPS receiver, please refer to
“Icons”, page 27.

Glossary
COM-port
A COM port is a connector to a communications interface, usually
the serial port. The ports are numbered by a number behind
“COM”. A communications interface is designed to connect
hardware like a mouse or a GPS receiver.
GMT
GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is the mean solar time at the Royal
Greenwich Observatory in Greenwich near London, England,
which by convention is at 0 degrees geographic longitude.
Theoretically, noon Greenwich Mean Time is the moment when
the Sun crosses the Greenwich meridian (and reaches its highest
point in the sky in Greenwich). Up to 1972, GMT was the global
time standard. Because of the Earth's uneven speed in its elliptic
orbit, GMT has been replaced by UTC (Universal Time
Coordinated) which is an ultra stable time standard based on
atomic clocks.
GPS
The GPS (Global Positioning System) is based on 24 satellites
which are in orbit round the earth. They are permanently
emitting the time and their current position. The GPS receiver
receives this information and calculates the longitude and the
latitude of its own current position.
The signals of at least three satellites are needed to determine
the longitude and the latitude. With the signals of at least four
satellites the elevation may be calculated, too. The determination
has an accuracy of about 3 yards.
HDOP
The Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) indicates the quality
of position determination. Theoretically any value from 0 to 50 is
possible. The smaller the value is, the more accurate is the
position determination (value 0 = no deviation from the actual
position). Values up to 8 are convenient for street navigation.
Points of Interest
Points of Interest are covered by the map and may be displayed
on it. Harbors, airports, restaurants, hotels, petrol stations,
public buildings, and others belong to the Point of Interest. You
may determine Point of Interest as itinerary points for navigation
purposes.
Map exportation
In MapExport, exportation of maps means the determination of
segments of the base map and their storage on the hard disk of
your PC.
Map transfer
With MapExport you may transfer customized maps (which are
stored on your PC) and Standard maps (included within the
delivery) to your Pocket PC.
