IMPORTANT NOTE: The Garmin cf Que has been tested and found to operate in a satisfactory manner when installed in Pocket
PC’s that meet the minimum operational requirements stated on the product package and on page vi of this guide. However,
Garmin has no responsibility for the quality or the reliability of performance of those products.
A significant issue, is the variance in maximum speaker volume for Pocket PCs of different manufacturers. You may find the
speaker volume of your Pocket PC to be compromised by road noise and its location in your vehicle when receiving turn-by-turn
voice direction prompts while navigating with the cf Que. It is therefore recommended that you activate the “Attention Tone” feature to prepare you to listen in advance for each voice prompt. Instructions for activating the “Attention Tone” are found on Page
24 of this Guide. Other remedies may be third party devices that can amplify the speaker volume when connected to the auxiliary
speaker port of your Pocket PC. Consult your Pocket PC retailer for information concerning these devices.
Touch-screen responsiveness for some Garmin Que operating features, such as slider controls, may vary from Pocket PC to Pocket
PC.

Introduction
Warnings and Precautions
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 as required in product literature and copyright messages
displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some degree. This is particularly true outside the United States, where
complete and accurate digital data is either not available or prohibitively expensive.
WARNING: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the United
States government, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance.
The system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance
of all GPS equipment. Although the Garmin cf Que™ 1620 is a precision electronic
NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and,
therefore, become unsafe.
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 http://www.garmin.com/prop65.
Important! Because the Garmin cf Que 1620 can be used for vehicular navigation, important safety considerations must be observed. Please read and observe

Safety Warnings and Cautions—Read This First!
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the owner/
operator of a vehicle equipped with a PDA with the cf Que™ 1620 installed, to
place and secure the device so that it will not interfere with the vehicle operating
controls and safety devices, obstruct the driver’s view of driving conditions, or
cause damage or personal injury in the event of an accident.
Do not mount the PDA over airbag panels or in the field of airbag deployment.
Airbags expand with a rapid force that can propel objects in their path towards the
vehicle driver or passengers causing possible injury. Refer to airbag safety precautions contained in the vehicle owner’s manual.
Do not mount the PDA in a place where the driver or passengers are likely to
impact it in a collision. The mounting hardware provided by Garmin is not warranted against collision damage or the consequences thereof.
WARNING: When used in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the driver of
the vehicle to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain full surveillance of all
driving conditions at all times, and not become distracted by the PDA to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the PDA while
you are driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle equipped with a PDA with cf Que
1620 installed to pay full attention to operation of the vehicle and road conditions
while the vehicle is in motion could result in an accident with property damage
and personal injury.

Introduction
About the Manuals
Introduction
The Garmin cf Que™ 1620 is designed to use Garmin GPS technology as an
application with a Pocket PC to provide you with navigational guidance. Your cf
Que 1620 comes with three manuals.
“Read This First” - Setup Guide
The Setup Guide gives you computer connection and software installation
instructions, and other important details. Before reading the other manuals, read
the Setup Guide which is printed on the Installation CD case. (Available only on
the Installation CD.)
Quick Start Guide
The Quick Start Guide tells you how to get started navigating with a convenient
reference for basic features. This is a hard copy that you can carry with you as a
quick reminder of how features operate and how to access them.
cf Que 1620 Application Guide
This Applications Guide describes, in detail, how to use the cf Que™ 1620 addon application and hardware for navigation. While this document is in portable
document file (pdf) form, it can be printed out to a hard copy which may be of
benefit when you take the device outside to navigate. (Available only on the Installation CD.)
Editor’s Note:
The above manuals and guides were created using the cf Que and Que operating software installed on a Pocket PC equipped with popular features and operating
with Microsoft® Pocket PC Version 3.0.11171. If your make and model Pocket
PC meets the minimum requirements stated below, it should operate in a manner
similar to that described in these manuals and guides, but may not include some
features discussed in the applications guide. Many Pocket PC features described
in this guide are not essential to operation of the cf Que and are used primarily as
convenient alternate methods of operation.
It is also important that you understand the operation of your Pocket PC prior
to using the Garmin cf Que. The operation of the Garmin cf Que application
requires understanding of standard procedures used for the Pocket PC that are not
discussed in detail in the cf Que Applications Guide. If you purchased your Pocket
PC at the same time as the Garmin cf Que and are not yet familiar with its operation, it is strongly recommended that you learn how to operate the Pocket PC first.
Minimum Pocket PC requirements for cf Que 1620
Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002, or Pocket PC 2003 operating system, CompactFlash
Type I or II slot, 16 MB program memory.

GPS Applications
Start Up
Tap to open the Application
Starting Up the cf Que 1620
If you followed the Setup instructions provided with the cf Que 1620, then both
the cf Que receiver and Garmin Que application software have been successfully
installed in the Pocket PC. To start operation, turn on your device and tap Start to
display the Start Menu, then tap Programs to display the Programs List with the
Garmin Que icon. Tap the Garmin Que icon
to display an introduction page
and then the Map Page and you’re on your way to navigating.
Helpful Hint: To shorten the process of restoring the Que application to visible
status, open Settings and the Menus application on the Personal page. From the
Menus page place a check next to Garmin Que to place it on the Start List.
It is important to remember that the cf Que GPS receiver will continue to operate
when the application is not visible. This can contribute to depletion of reserve battery
power. Some Pocket PC devices continue to supply power to the CF slot when the
PDA is turned off. To prevent accidental battery drain, it is recommended the you
remove the cf Que from the slot when the Garmin Que application is not in use.
The methods for closing the Que application are to tap “Exit” from the Map Page
Main Menu, or from any application, tap Start, then Settings, and finally Memory and
tab to a list of Running Programs. Tap “Garmin Que” and then the Stop button.
Viewing the Map Page
The Map Page is the base for accessing all of the Que navigation features. A
message window at the top of this page keeps you informed of the status of the
GPS receiver. When the cf Que GPS receiver is not installed the Map Page will
display a “No GPS Connected” message.
When the receiver is installed in the CompactFlash slot, the Map Page will
then display a “Waiting for GPS” message until the application connects with the
receiver. Once connected an “Acquiring Satellites” message appears until GPS Location is achieved.
To return to the Map Page from any other Que feature page or option, tap OK.
Map Page
Initializing the GPS Receiver
Initializing the GPS Receiver
The GPS Receiver (the cf Que device) must be initialized (given an opportunity to determine its location) before you can begin using it for navigation. Before
it can receive signals from GPS satellites overhead, you must turn the receiver on
and deploy the antenna on the cf Que™ by positioning it parallel with the horizon
for best satellite reception. In order to receive satellite signals, you must be outdoors and have a clear view of the sky. Satellite signals cannot pass through solid
materials (except glass) or dense overhead tree cover. When the cf Que initializes
for the first time it may take as long as 15 minutes. This time can be shortened
by using the GPS Info Page to select the general area in which you are currently
located (see page 20). Anytime you have traveled more than 600 miles with the
GPS receiver turned off, the cf Que must again find its location by re-initializing.
If for any reason, you have difficulty initializing your cf Que, refer to the
Troubleshooting Guide on page 38, the solution could be a simple as moving
slightly to avoid buildings or objects that are blocking or deflecting satellite
signals.

Using the Map Page
The Map Page is the primary navigation feature of the Que application. From this
page you can observe a triangular arrow that indicates your current location and
direction of travel. As you move, this “Position Arrow” moves with you, turning when
you turn and stopping when you stop.
The Map Page displays a detailed map of the area surrounding your current location. It allows you pan the map with the stylus as well as view your progress when
navigating. When in the “Track Up” mode (oriented in the direction of travel), a
north reference arrow appears at the top left corner to orient the map. When you
activate the Track Log feature, your path of movement is indicated by a dotted line.
Use the Map Page to:
• Determine your current location
• View your progress while moving
• Locate and navigate to nearby map items
• Follow a route line when navigating
• Access other navigation features using the Main Menu.
• Mark your current location or a map point as a waypoint
To use the Map Page:
1. Tap Start to open the Main Menu and then tap Programs.
2. Select Garmin Que to display the Map Page.
When first accessing the Map Page it will take a few moments for the GPS
Receiver to locate satellites overhead before it determines your location. While this
takes place, an “Acquiring Satellites” message will display at the top of the page.
When your location has been determined, a “3D GPS Location” message replaces
the original message. After you begin moving, it changes to display the next street
ahead and you can also determine your direction of travel, speed and current location by observing the data fields below the message.
At the base of the page is the Map Tool Bar with the Main Menu, and icons for
Waypoint Marker, Position Arrow, Details, Map/Data Fields option, Find Menu,
Route, Zoom Map Scale and Pan Map. Tap and hold to display their function.

To change the map scale in increments, tapping the map scale at the lower left
side of the map displays the map scale control panel. A scale bar is displayed with
Zoom In and Out Arrows at the top and bottom. Tapping the Up Arrow moves to
scales which show less map detail but more map area and the Down Arrow moves
to scales which increase the detail but show less map area. Tapping a desired scale
changes the map to that scale and closes the panel.
Tapping the Map/Data Fields icon allows you to view the Map Page in three modes,
Full Map, Large Map with small Data Fields, Smaller Map with larger Data Fields.

GPS Applications
The Map Page
Map Pointer and Item Description
The Map Page also displays detailed geographic information such as highways
and roads, lakes and rivers, cities, waypoints and residential streets, depending on
the detail of map data being used. Detailed maps can be loaded from map data CD’s
using MapSource as explained on page 34 of this guide.
There are two map orientation options: North Up and Track Up. North Up orients
the map like a paper map, while Track Up orients the map in the direction of travel
and can be set to display only below a desired map scale. As you travel to the edge of
the display, the map moves (redraws) to constantly show your current location.
When the “Pan Map with Stylus” mode is selected, dragging the stylus across
the screen causes the map to pan with the movement of the stylus. This allows you
view portions of the map surrounding your current location helping you to locate
nearby cities, lakes or other geographical features. When this feature is not active,
the “Zoom Scale” feature is in place which allows you to drag the stylus across a
desired portion of the map, creating a rectangular box to zoom in on details.
Information Page with
Lat/Lon Coordinates
Tapping the Details icon on the tool bar displays the Details Page with either an
address description or latitude and longitude coordinates for your current location
or a map point defined by the Map Pointer.
Tapping the stylus on the map places the Map Pointer on any selected location
on the map. If that location is supported by detailed mapping data, a description
(name or address) will display (briefly). Any location on the map, marked by the Map
Pointer, can be saved as a waypoint by tapping the Waypoint Marker Flag or the Information Page icon in the map tool bar. (More on waypoints on page 18.) To remove the
Map Pointer, tap the Position Arrow icon on the tool bar or on the map and re-center
the Position Arrow. When the Arrow is centered on the page, the icon is highlighted.
The map color can be set to automatically compensate for the difference in day
and night lighting conditions to improve readability of the map. Switching from
day to night mode reduces the amount of night glare produced by the screen when
mounted on a vehicle dash. See Map Setup preferences on page 7.

When you zoom in from 500 feet on down and the Position Arrow isn’t
matched to a road on the map, an Accuracy Circle appears around the Position
Arrow. The circle represents the area in which you are located. The diameter of the
circle will vary in size depending on the number and geometry of overhead satellites. When zoomed in with the Track Log recording, you may also see many small
track lines criss crossing in and out of the circle as the cf Que adjusts its location.
