HOW TO INSTALL THE UNIT (1)
¡Removing the portable DVD navigation unit
from the stand base
PREPARATIONS PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
■ The initial adhesive strength of the double-surface adhesive tape is reduced when the
temperature is low (20°C (68°F) or less). Turn on the heater and heat the vehicle up
prior to adhering onto the mounting surface.
■ Make sure to use the cleaner included with the kit to clean the mounting
surface of any dirt and let the surface dry before adhering the stand base.
The dashboard may have been coated with a wax surface protective agent that
is hard to see with the naked eye. This wax significantly weakens the doublesurface adhesive tape and may cause the unit to fall.
■ The double-surface tape adhering the stand base can only be stuck onto the
surface once and cannot be peeled off and re-adhered.
There are two ways to assemble the stand: with or without the portable DVD navigation
unit mounting stay. Select the assembly method that best suits your vehicle.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (2)
CAUTION
WARNING
Make sure that there is no dust adhering to the metal
contacts of the AC/DC adaptor. Dust or metal touching the
contacts may result in fires or electric shocks.
While driving, adjust the volume of the unit so that
exterior sounds can be heard well. Driving without being
able to hear exterior sounds may lead to traffic accidents.
Do not damage, bend excessively, twist, pull or place
heavy weights on the AC/DC adaptor cord.
Should the cord get damaged (core wire exposed, cut, etc.)
request a replacement at the place of purchase. Using as is
may result in fires or electric shocks.
Should the instructions provided by the navigation unit
differ from the actual traffic conditions, proceed to drive
in accordance with the actual traffic conditions.
Accidents may result.
Do not place the AC/DC adaptor cord near a heater.
The cord’s plastic sheath may melt and result in fires or
electric shocks.
When unplugging the AC/DC adaptor cord, do so by
pulling on the plug itself, not the cord.
Pulling on the cord may result in damage to the cord and lead
to fires or electric shocks.
CAUTION
Do not use the unit in areas of high temperatures for an
extended period (direct sunlight, in a vehicle under a hot
sun, etc.) and do not leave the unit in such areas.
Burns or fires may result.
Do not place or install the unit in areas where rain is
blown in by the wind or in areas prone to water splashes,
humidity or dust. Water, humidity or dust infiltrating the unit
may result in smoke emissions or fires.
Pull out
the plug
When cleaning the plug or when not using the unit for an
extended period, disconnect the AC/DC adaptor from the
power supply for safety.
Electric shocks or fires may result.
Do not place the unit in areas where it may be exposed to
oil, smoke or water vapor such as near a kitchen counter
or a humidifier. Fires or electric shocks may result.
Do not place the plug on the floor with the metal contacts
facing upward.
Stepping on it in this condition may cause injury.
Do not place the unit on unsteady or inclined surfaces.
It may fall resulting in injury.
Do not look directly at the laser light source.
Doing so may cause eye damage.
Do not use the unit if it is covered by a cloth
sheet or blanket. Fires may result.
Do not press on the liquid crystal panel with excessive
force or expose it to impacts.
The liquid crystal panel glass may crack resulting in injury.
Enjoy watching the unit at a suitable sound level.
High volumes may damage your hearing and, because
exterior sounds become muffled, traffic accidents may result.
If the unit’s power supply is the vehicle battery, do not
leave the vehicle engine turned off for extended period
while operating the unit.
The vehicle battery may weaken and die out.
21
Do not handle the AC/DC adaptor cord with wet hands.
Electric shocks may result.
Should the liquid crystal panel crack, do not come into
contact with the liquid coming from the interior of the
panel. This may lead to inflammation of the skin.
¡Should the liquid be accidentally ingested, see a doctor
immediately.
¡Should the liquid get into the eyes or onto the skin, wash out
with a large amount of water and see a doctor immediately.
22
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (3)
CAUTION
For safety, adhere the stand base onto a surface that would enable secure
anchoring. Depending on the dashboard material (PP: polypropylene or
other), the double-surface adhesive tape alone may not be strong enough
to affix the unit. Use the tapping screws included with the unit (4 screws)
to securely anchor it.
* For such a case, holes need to be made into the dashboard. Proceed with
caution.
(*In case of a prominent curved surface, the adhesive area is reduced
resulting in unsteady mounting. The unit may not be mountable onto such a
surface.)
For vehicles equipped with airbags (SRS Dual Airbag, SRS Side Airbag,
SRS Curtain Airbag, etc.), do not under any circumstance install the unit
in a way that obstructs the airbag cover or would hinder its proper
operation. Do not wire the antenna cord in such an area.
In the event the airbag is to be deployed, it may not function correctly.
(*Decide on the unit’s mounting position after thoughtful consideration for safety
and consultation with the place of purchase.)
If the surface on which the unit is to be adhered is not plastic (leather,
wood, upholstery, etc.), the surface finish may become damaged
rendering installation using adhesives impossible.
Should the stand base adhesive get torn off the dashboard, slowly and
carefully peel it off the surface.
Because strong adhesive tape is used, peeling off with excessive force may
damage the dashboard surface finish.

may result in laser malfunction rendering
normal operation impossible. Results may
depend on the ambient environmental conditions,
however, the condensation will evaporate and normal operation will be possible after
removing the disc and leaving the unit unused for roughly 1 hour.
ABOUT VIBRATIONS
Because the most detailed map reduction scales provided by the map disc vary
depending on the region, when moving the map screen to a region of varying reduction
scale, the screen may not show a map. Continue moving the map to return the normal
driving map screen and the reduction scale will change to the most detailed map for the
region presently displayed.
ABOUT USING THE UNIT WITH THE VEHICLE ENGINE TURNED OFF
(WHEN THE UNIT POWER SOURCE IS THE VEHICLE BATTERY)
Using the unit when the vehicle engine is turned off may lead to
weakening of the battery. Do not use the unit for an extended period
with the engine turned off.
Exposing the unit to vibrations may result in the following conditions:
¡DVD video/CD/JPEG imaging: Sound and image disturbance, however, both return to
normal when vibrations cease.
¡Map disc: Rarely affected by vibrations, however, on rare occasions, symptoms such
as the map disappearing from the screen may occur. Operation returns to
normal when vibrations cease.
Everything will
be back to
normal when
vibrations stop!
¡Dust easily adheres to the screen necessitating
periodical cleaning. When cleaning, cut off the
power supply and wipe the screen with a soft
cloth. Do not use a wet cloth and do not rub the
screen with a hard object or hit the screen.
ABOUT THE DISPLAY
¡Direct sunlight will cause the display to blacken
due to reflection of the sunrays. Avoid direct
sunlight.
90° laterally
45° vertically
¡The display is best viewed from directly in front of
the unit. Watch the screen within a 45° angle
vertically and a 90° angle laterally from the unit.
¡Red and blue points of light may appear in the display. This is normal for a liquid
crystal display and does not mean the display is damaged.
¡The display uses a small fluorescent tube as a backlight for liquid crystals. If the
screen goes black and does not light up, consult the place of purchase.

region number may be played back using any DVD player regardless of the region.
¡This unit will not playback discs recorded with a color TV format other than NTSC
even if the region number is “1” or “ALL”.
■ About 3inch(8cm) discs
This unit does not require an 3inch(8cm) disc adaptor. Insert 3inch(8cm) discs just like
any 5inch(12cm) disc.
■ About specially shaped discs
Do not use specially formed discs such as heart-shaped or hexagonal discs with this
unit. These may not only damage the unit but, when ejecting the disc, it may fly out and
cause injury due to its high speed rotation.
JPEG IMAGING
Your JPEG imaging recorded in CD-R discs via a PC can be viewed.
zSee p.158, “Viewing JPEG images”.
■ About the included map DVD-ROM
This disc is especially made for the unit. Using in another device may lead to damage to
that device.
■ About copy protected CDs (copy control CD)
Use CDs that conform to CD Disc standard such as those with the CD logo
mark printed on its label.
Using a CD with a copy protected function configuration whose purpose was to prevent
computer aided reproduction may not playback normally. This is not due to a
malfunction of the unit but rather to a phenomenon that occurs due to the lack of
conformity of copy protected CDs (copy control CD) to CD standards. Should problems
occur with the playback of copy protected CDs (copy control CD), consult the place of
purchase.

RECEIVING SIGNALS FROM THE GPS SATELLITE
If the unit does not receive signals from the GPS satellite using the GPS exterior
antenna included with the unit, present location measurement will be impossible.
To display the actual present location, connect the GPS exterior antenna to the unit
and proceed with the reception of signals from the GPS satellite.
PRESENT LOCATION MEASUREMENT
Proceed with GPS satellite signal reception as shown below. When the unit receives
signals it can use to measure the present location, the GPS reception display ( )
located in the top right corner of the present location display screen lights up yellow
and the actual present location is displayed.
* When the GPS reception display (
) is gray, the present location measured previously is displayed.
After having purchased the unit, the San Francisco area will be shown if the unit hasn’t had a chance
to measure the present location yet. GPS signal reception is impossible from inside a building.
To measure the present location properly, take the GPS exterior antenna outside and proceed with
signal reception.
IF USING THE UNIT INSTALLED
ELSEWHERE THAN YOUR VEHICLE
Connect the included GPS exterior antenna to
the unit and place it outside in an area where
signals will not be obstructed.
GPS exterior antenna
¡In a tunnel
¡Surrounded by tall
buildings
¡Within a dense cluster
of trees
¡Under an elevated
highway
Tunnel
¡Within a building
¡When riding on public transportation
* The following are reasons why the GPS satellite reception frequency fluctuates even at the same
location.
¡Because the position of the GPS satellite changes with time due to its orbit around the earth.
¡Because signal reception may be affected by other signals whose frequencies are close to those
transmitted by the GPS satellite.
* To prevent interference between the navigation unit and
the GPS exterior antenna, we recommend that you install
them at least 10 inches apart.
INSTALLATION
EXAMPLE
GPS exterior antenna
Connect the included GPS exterior antenna
to the unit.
Mount it horizontally on the exterior chassis
of the vehicle or in your vehicle (dashboard)
on a flat surface where any part of your vehicle
will not obstruct signal reception.
* – Signals may not be properly received if installing within the vehicle. Try your best to install it on the
exterior of your vehicle. (The included GPS antenna mounting plate is required if installing within
your vehicle.)
– If installing within your vehicle, we recommend your separate the unit and the GPS exterior antenna
by at least 10 inches so as to prevent them from interfering.
183
In the event of obstructions blocking GPS satellite signals from reaching the GPS
exterior antenna, the signals will be difficult to receive rendering the measurement
of the present location impossible. Conditions for proper present location
measurement include driving in areas where there are no obstructions blocking
signal reception.
Areas such as the following are not suitable for GPS satellite signal reception, move
away from them for proper positioning.
INSTALLATION EXAMPLE
* Within buildings or public transportation, the roof may
obstruct the proper reception of GPS satellite signals
rendering the measurement of the present location
impossible.
IF USING THE UNIT INSTALLED
IN YOUR VEHICLE
AREAS WHERE PRESENT LOCATION MEASUREMENT IS IMPOSSIBLE
O
T
H
E
R
THE TIME IT TAKES FOR PROPER SIGNAL RECEPTION
Make sure to conduct signal reception in a wide open area.
When the unit receives signals it can use to measure the present location, the GPS
reception display ( ) located in the top right corner of the present location display screen
lights up yellow and the actual present location is displayed.
After having purchased the unit and using it for the first time or using it again after
an extended period of inactivity, it may take the unit 15 to 20 minutes before being
able to display the actual present location. (This is because the satellite tracking data is
sent by the GPS satellite once every 12.5 minutes significantly delaying the time it takes for
data to be received. Do not move your position until the present location is
displayed.) Normally, the position screen should appear a few minutes after having turned
the power ON.
184
CAUTIONARY ITEMS DURING ROUTE GUIDANCE (1)
■ The route displayed is the reference
route.
This may not be the shortest route to
the destination.
■ Whether it’s because the roads have
been modified or because the map
DVD-ROM is outdated, the shape of
the roads as well as the traffic
conditions may vary from the actual
conditions. Make sure to drive your
vehicle as per the actual traffic
conditions.
■ Set the position accurately in areas
where roads are in close proximity to
each other. Especially in areas where
the two directions of traffic are
displayed as separate roads, make
sure the heading is correct and set
your destination and waypoints on
roads.
■ In the event waypoint(s) are set, the
unit searches for routes between them
separately which may result in the
following:
■ During a route search, the map does
not shift in accordance with the
running of your vehicle.
¡If a route search is impossible for any
of the points, the entire route is not
displayed.
■ After a route search is complete, it
may take a moment until the
recommended route is displayed.
¡The route may be broken near the
waypoints.
■ There may be instances when the
route does not disappear from the
screen when arriving at your
destination or at waypoints. Either
search for a new route or turn off the
engine to clear the route from the
screen.
■ When re-effectuating a route search,
the unit will not search for a route to
return to waypoints that have been
determined as already passed along
the route.
■ When the map is shifted while the
route is displayed, it may take a
moment for the route to be
redisplayed.
■ If having made a route search
prioritizing distance, the unit may
lead you through narrow roads or on
toll roads.
■ Even if having made a route search
prioritizing distance, the unit will
prioritize safe, easy to drive on local
roads near the departure and
destination points that may not
represent the shortest distance.
185
¡A U-turn route may be displayed near
waypoints.
■ A route search may be impossible in
the following circumstances:
¡The present location and the
destination are too far from each other.
In such a case, reinitiate a route search
after having set closer to the
destination.
¡Actual traffic conditions render access
to the destination or waypoint
impossible.
¡There are only routes representing
extreme detours.
¡Other instances where conditions
render a route search impossible.
■ There may be instances when the
following routes are displayed.
¡Even if making a route search, there
may be a route displayed starting from
the front or the back of the vehicle
mark.
¡Even if having set a destination, there
may be a route displayed from the
front or the back of the vehicle mark.
¡Even if making a route search, the
display may show a route starting from
another road.
For such a case, the vehicle mark may
not correspond with the present
location. Re-effectuate the route
search after the vehicle mark has
returned to the correct road.
¡Setting the destination and waypoints
with points retrieved from already
registered points or guidance data
may lead to the display of routes with
wide detours. If correcting such routes,
make sure to set them accurately
keeping in mind the proper heading.
Pay special attention to roads whose
two traffic directions are shown as
separate roads such as in the case of
interchanges and service areas.
¡Even if having set a destination
reachable completely on land with no
check mark (
) indicated next to
Use Ferries in Preferred Route , the
unit may set a route that contains a
ferry crossing. If wanting to correct the
route, set a waypoint along a land
bound route and re-effectuate the
route search.
O
T

RIVER
Example:
A map with “---Aquarium” is selected from “Searching
for points of interest and retail establishments” and a
destination point is registered.
I really wanted
to take
this road…
The departure/waypoint/destination point marks
are registered right on the POI, however, the
actual departure/waypoint/destination points for
the route search are set along the roads
available in the search data that are nearest to
the registered points. Because of this, the set
route may be different from the roads you
intended to take.
To avoid this, use the most detailed map to
register the point along the desired road that
is available in the search data in the proper
lane heading towards the destination.
Example:
Set waypoints in order starting from the location nearest to the departure point
(present location).
