INTRODUCTION > WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
Warning
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous
situations could result in an accident or collision resulting in
death or serious injury.
When installing the Quest in a vehicle, place the unit securely
so that it does not interfere with vehicle operating controls or
obstruct the driver’s view of the road (see diagram).
Do not mount
where driver’s
field of vision is
blocked.
Do not place
unsecured on
the vehicle
dash.
Do not mount in front of an airbag
field of deployment.
Always operate the vehicle in a safe manner. Do not become
distracted by the Quest while driving, and always be fully
aware of all driving conditions. Minimize the amount of time
spent viewing the screen of the Quest while driving and use
voice prompts when possible. Do not enter destinations, change
settings, or access any functions requiring prolonged use of the
unit’s controls while driving. Pull over in a safe and legal manner
before attempting such operations.
When navigating, carefully compare information displayed
on the Quest to all available navigation sources, including
information from street signs, visual sightings, and maps. For
safety, always resolve any discrepancies or questions before
continuing navigation.
The Quest contains a non-user-replaceable, rechargeable lithiumion battery. The battery may present a risk of fire or chemical
burn if mistreated.
• Do not remove from the unit, heat unit above 140°F
(60°C), or incinerate.
• Dispose of unit properly. Contact your local waste
disposal department for information on properly disposing
of lithium-ion batteries.
WARNING: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth
defects, or reproductive harm. This Notice is being provided in accordance with California’s Proposition 65. If you have any questions or
would like additional information, please refer to our Web site at www.garmin.com/prop65.

Quest Owner’s Manual
INTRODUCTION > WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
Caution
Failure to avoid the following potentially hazardous
situations may result in injury or property damage.
should not be used to determine ground proximity for aircraft
navigation.
The Quest is designed to provide you with route suggestions.
It does not reflect road closures or road conditions, traffic
congestion, weather conditions, or other factors that may affect
safety or timing while driving.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the
United States government, which is solely responsible for its
accuracy and maintenance. The government’s system is subject
to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance
of all GPS equipment, including the Quest. Although the Quest
is a precision navigation device, any navigation device can be
misused or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
Use the Quest only as a navigational aid. Do not attempt to
use the Quest for any purpose requiring precise measurement
of direction, distance, location, or topography. This product
Map Data Information: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide customers with the most complete and accurate cartography that is
available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private data sources, which we identify in product literature
and copyright messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some extent. In some
countries, complete and accurate map information is either not available or is prohibitively expensive.
Notice To Drivers in California and Minnesota: State law prohibits drivers in California and Minnesota from using suction mounts on
their windshields while operating motor vehicles. Other Garmin dashboard or friction mounting options should be used. Garmin does not
take any responsibility for any fines, penalties, or damages that may be incurred as a result of disregarding this notice. (See California
Vehicle Code Section 26708(a); Minnesota Statutes 2005, Section 169.71.)

INTRODUCTION > CARING FOR THE QUEST
Caring for the Quest
The Quest is constructed of high quality materials and does not
require user maintenance other than cleaning.
Cleaning the Case
To clean the unit’s outer casing (except for the screen), use a cloth
dampened with a mild detergent solution, and then wipe dry.
Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that may damage plastic
components.
Cleaning the Screen
Clean the screen using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Use water,
isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner if needed. To use these
cleaners, apply the liquid to the cloth and wipe the screen.
Storing Your Quest
Do not store the Quest where prolonged exposure to temperature
extremes may occur (such as in the trunk of a car), as permanent
damage may result.
Avoiding Theft
To avoid theft, take your Quest with you or remove it from view
when you leave your vehicle.
vi
Using the Quest Responsibly
The Quest is equipped with a Safe Mode feature to improve driver
safety. When your vehicle is moving, the Safe Mode disables all
functions that require significant operator attention and could
become a distraction when driving.
Read the warnings on pages iv–v to learn how to install and use
your Quest safely and responsibly.
Battery Temperature Warning
Your Quest contains an internal lithium-ion battery, which can store
more energy than standard batteries. All batteries slowly lose the
amount of energy they can hold over time. To maximize battery
life, limit the unit’s prolonged exposure to excessive heat and direct
sunlight.
If Your Quest Locks Up…
On rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case,
reset it by pressing the Power key and the IN key at the same time.
The unit turns off. The unit will operate normally when you turn it
on again.
Recycling Your Quest
The California Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 requires
recycling. See www.erecycle.org for more information.

UNIT OVERVIEW > A TUTORIAL
A Tutorial
This tutorial guides you through the steps for finding a restaurant in
your area and then creating a route to it.
If you have a Quest (not a Quest 2), you need to first load detailed
maps onto your Quest. Refer to the setup guide in the DVD-ROM
case. The Quest 2 has map data loaded already; you do not need to
load additional data on the Quest 2.
Step 1: Flip up the antenna and snap your Quest into the vehicle
suction mount. Plug the cable end of the 12-Volt adapter into
your vehicle’s cigarette lighter. See page 4 if you need additional
instructions.
Turn on the Quest. Make certain the antenna is unobstructed as it
looks for satellites. For example, it cannot establish a satellite fix if
your vehicle is parked in a garage. Position the antenna so that it
is parallel to the surface of

UNDERSTANDING GPS > THE GPS INFORMATION PAGE
UNDERSTANDING GPS
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based
navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed
into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. GPS was originally
intended for military applications, but the government made the
system available for civilian use in the 1980s. GPS works in any
weather condition, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. There
are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.
GPS satellites circle the earth twice a day in a very precise orbit
and transmit signal information to Earth. The GPS receiver in your
Quest takes this information and uses triangulation to calculate
your exact location. Essentially, the GPS receiver compares the
time a signal was transmitted by a satellite with the time it was
received. The time difference tells the GPS receiver how far away
the satellite is. With distance measurements from a few more
satellites, the receiver can determine your location and display it on
the Quest’s Map page.
A GPS receiver must be locked on to at least three satellites
to calculate a 2D location (latitude and longitude) and track
movement. With four or more satellites in view, the receiver can
determine your 3D location (latitude, longitude, and altitude).
42
After your location has been determined, the GPS unit can
calculate other information, such as speed, bearing, track, trip
distance, distance to destination, sunrise and sunset, and time.
WAAS is a system of satellites and ground stations that provide
GPS signal corrections, giving you even better position accuracy.
WAAS corrects for GPS signal errors caused by ionospheric
disturbances, timing, and satellite orbit errors, and it provides vital
integrity information regarding the health of each GPS satellite.
The GPS Information Page
The GPS Information page provides a visual reference of GPS
receiver functions, including current satellite coverage, receiver
status, and position accuracy. To access this page, press MENU,
highlight Settings, and press OK. From the Settings page,
highlight GPS Info and press OK.
GPS satellites are positioned throughout the sky. As soon as you
turn on your Quest, it attempts to acquire satellite signals. The sky
view area on the GPS Information page displays which satellites
are currently in your area.
Quest Owner’s Manual
UNDERSTANDING GPS > THE GPS INFORMATION PAGE
A signal strength bar appears for each satellite in view; the
satellite’s number (1–33) appears to the left of each bar. The
progress of satellite acquisition is shown in three stages:
• No signal strength bar—the GPS receiver in your Quest is
looking for the satellite indicated. The corresponding number
on the sky view is not highlighted.
• Hollow signal strength bar—the GPS receiver has found
the satellite and is collecting data. The corresponding
number on the sky view is not highlighted.
• Solid signal strength bar—the GPS receiver has collected
the necessary data and the satellite is ready for use. The
corresponding number on the sky view is highlighted.

Quest Owner’s Manual
Sky View and Signal Strength Bars
The sky view and signal strength bars indicate the satellites that are
currently visible and which satellites are being used to calculate
a position fix. The signal strength bars also indicate the quality of
each satellite signal.
The sky view provides an overhead view of each satellite position
relative to your unit’s last known location. The outer circle
represents the horizon and shows cardinal heading references. The
inner circle represents an elevation of 45° above the horizon. Any
satellite depicted near the center is directly overhead.
You can set the sky view to Track Up
instead of North Up orientation. Track Up
causes the top of the sky view to align to
your current direction of travel. To change
to Track Up, press MENU while on the GPS
Info page. Then select Skyview Track Up.

Satellite Status Bar
As soon as the GPS receiver in your Quest has collected the
necessary data to calculate a fix, the status bar indicates a position
fix. The current GPS status and the accuracy of the position fix can
be found in the satellite status bar located at the top of the page.
Poor Satellite Reception Menu
If the Quest cannot establish a position fix after several minutes,
the Poor Satellite Reception menu appears. The menu might appear
when you first use your Quest or during normal use if the antenna
is shaded or if the unit is used indoors.
The Poor Satellite Reception
menu gives you several
options when an insufficient
number of satellites is received
to determine a position fix.
To select a new location:
1. Press the MENU key, highlight Settings, and press OK.
2. Highlight GPS Info and press OK to open the GPS
Information page.
3. Press MENU.

your approximate location. Then press OK.
These options appear when
you press MENU from the
GPS Info page.
From the Poor Satellite Reception menu, you can turn off GPS
when using the unit indoors, update your approximate location, or
continue to search for the satellites. Updating your approximate
location ensures that the Quest is searching for the correct satellites
and is useful if you have traveled over 500 miles with the unit
turned off.
