Introduction
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: For use in vehicles, it is the sole
responsibility of the owner/operator of the eMap to secure
the GPS unit so that it will not interfere with the vehicle’s
operating controls, obstruct the driver’s view of driving
conditions, or cause damage or personal injury in the event
of an accident. Do not mount the eMap over air bag panels
or in the field of air bag deployment. AIr bags expand with
a rapid force that can propel objects in their path toward
the driver or passengers, causing possible injury. Refer to
air bag safety precautions contained in the vehicle owner’s
manual. Do not mount the eMap in a place where the
driver or passengers are likely to impact it in an accident
or collison. 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 eMap to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is
unsafe to operate the controls of the eMap while you are
driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle equipped with an
eMap to pay full attention to operation of the vehicle and
road conditions while the vehicle is in motion could result
in an accident or collision with property damage and
personal injury.

Remove battery compartment
cover, observe polarity markings,
install batteries and reinstall
cover.
NOTE: When using fully charged
rechargeable batteries, the
Battery Capacity Indicator may
typically indicate less than full.
This is a characteristic of
rechargeables and does not
necessarily indicate that they
will not last as long as
disposable Alkaline batteries.
Start Up
Installing the Batteries
The eMap operates on two AA batteries, which are
installed by removing the cover on the back of the unit. These
batteries will provide up to 12 hours of continuous use.
Rechargeable NiCad, NiMH, or Lithium batteries may be also
used. Stored data will not be lost when the batteries are
removed. Refer to battery care information on page 38.
To install the batteries:
1. Open the battery compartment on the back of the
unit by pressing the two arrows on the cover. Slide
it back and then lift up to remove.
2. Install the batteries according to the polarity markings
in the battery compartment. Use only new batteries.
Do not mix battery types, (i.e. alkaline, NiCad, Lithium)
3. Press the cover onto the compartment then slide
forward until it clicks back in place.
NOTE: If you have purchased a MapSource
. CD-ROM
and a Data Card for use with the

Getting Started
Each time you turn on the eMap it must determine its
location. The first time you use your eMap, this may take
from five to fifteen minutes. After first use, the eMap should
determine your location in less than one minute.
When your location has been determined, the Compass
in the upper left corner of the Map Page will display
Cardinal letters (North, South, East, West) and your current
location will be shown on the map beneath it.
If there are not enough satellites in view to determine
its location, the eMap will display a ‘Poor Satellite
Reception’ message with four options. A brief explanation
for each option will appear when it is highlighted.
Use the ROCKER keypad to highlight the logical
option and then press the ENTER key to activate it.
If the time displayed in the time field on the Map Page
is not correct, you will need to set the time zone for your
current location. Detailed instructions for setting the time
zone are contained on pages 32 and 40 of this manual.
Determining Your
Location
About the Map Page
The Map Page is the main operating page of the eMap.
It graphically shows you map details, your current
location, marks your route to a destination with a route line,
and leaves a trail (track log) of where you’ve been.
It tells you what direction to go or the direction you are
traveling.
It tells you your speed, the distance you have traveled,
or the distance to travel, and the time of day or the time
remaining before reaching a destination.

Using the Map Page to Navigate
The Map Page provides graphic display for the four
methods of eMap navigation:
Goto - A direct path to a map location, (waypoint, city,
address, etc.)
Track - A previous path of travel that has been stored
(logged) in the eMap. A Track allows you to repeat a
path or to return to your starting point on the same path
using the GARMIN TracBack® feature.
Route - A path to a destination consisting of landmarks
along the way (waypoints, cities, highway exits, points
of interest, intersections, etc.)
Travel when not on a Goto, Track or Route - This is
best described as travel without entering a destination
in the eMap. The Map Page displays your real time
movement as you travel with the unit turned on and
receiving satellites. It can be saved (logged) as a Track.
Data Fields
Several Data Fields support the Map Page and consist of
the following elements.
Direction Fields
There are three types of direction fields, each providing
direction information dependent on whether you are
stopped while navigating, navigating to a destination, or
traveling without a recorded destination.
Direction To Go (N. S. E. W.) - Cardinal letters
indicate the direction to go when starting out or to
resume after having stopped while on an active Goto,
Track or Route. These letters can be changed to degrees.
Refer to page 33.
Direction To Go (Arrow) - An arrow that points to the
direction you should be traveling when moving on an
active Goto, Track or Route.
Compass - A compass that shows the direction you are
moving when not on a an active Goto, Track or Route.
Getting Started
Speed, Distance and Time Fields
Speed - Your rate of travel can be displayed in miles
per hour, kilometers per hour, or nautical miles per hour.
Distance - When traveling on a Goto, Track or Route
the distance remaining to go to a destination will be
displayed. When not on a Goto, Track or Route, the
accumulated Trip Distance will be displayed.
Time - When on a Goto, Track or Route, the time to go
before reaching a destination is displayed. When not on
a Goto, Track or Route, the time for the current time
zone is displayed in either 12 or 24 hour format.
The Map Display
The map display shows your present position and
direction of movement as a triangular ‘Position Icon’ in the
center of the map. As you travel, the map display leaves a
“trail” (track log) of where you’ve been. The map display also
shows the map scale and geographic details such as lakes,
rivers, highways, and towns.
Use the IN and OUT keys to change the map scale to
show more map area with less detail, or less map area with
more detail. Press and hold to zoom the map scale rapidly.
In many instances the map will display an ‘Accuracy
Circle’ surrounding the ‘Position Icon’. The eMap uses both
map resolution and GPS accuracy in defining your location to
a point within the circle. The smaller the circle, the more
accurate your location.
More detailed map features as well as information about
those features can be displayed using a data card containing
map data transferred from a GARMIN MapSource CD-ROM.
When using MapSource data, the word “MapSource” will appear
below the map scale whenever you zoom in to view map details.
The Panning Arrow (Map Pointer)
The Panning Arrow is controlled by the ROCKER
keypad and is used to identify map objects and move the map
in order to view areas of the map not currently within the
display. The Panning Arrow can be used to establish a ‘Point of
Reference’ when measuring distance between map items. It can
be used to create a waypoint or to move a waypoint to a new
location. Refer to pages 14, 16, 18, and 19 for detailed
information about these applications.
Press the ROCKER keypad at an angle to move diagonally.
Press and hold the ROCKER keypad to move to new areas of
the map. Press the ESCAPE key to cancel the panning arrow.

1. Press the IN Zoom key to select a scale that shows
more detail for a smaller map area.
2. Press the OUT Zoom key to select a scale that
displays a larger map area, but with less detail.
The map scale is shown in the lower left corner of the map
display area. The scale is shown in the unit of measure selected
from the ‘Units’ field of the ‘General’ setup page. Refer to page
32 for setup details.
It is possible to zoom in so far that the resolution of the
map data is exceeded and the appearance of the map will no
longer be accurate. When this occurs, the word “overzoom”
will appear just below the map scale.
When using a map data cartridge, the word
“MapSource” will appear below the map scale when you
zoom in to see more detailed map features. When driving
on city streets within a MetroGuide or other MapSource
coverage area, more detailed map scales (800 to 300 feet)
may be preferred since they provide a good view of all
streets and not just major roadways. When traveling on
major roadways (highways and Interstates) map scales of
two miles or more may be more practical.
With certain types of MapSource data, such as
MetroGuide data, the eMap may match your location to
roads on the map. In these instances, the ‘Accuracy Circle’
(discussed on page 5) will not be shown.
You can control the display of map details at specific
map scales by using the Map Setup Options as explained on
page 17. Using the setup options allows you to create clearer,
less “cluttered”, maps as you desire.

Creating and Using a Route
Route navigation allows you to create a sequence of
intermediate waypoints which lead you to your final
destination. The eMap will store fifty routes, each with up to
fifty waypoints. A Route can be created and modified from
the Route Page or complex routes can be created on a PC and
transferred into the eMap.
To create a route by entering each
waypoint:
1. Access the ‘Routes’ page from the Main Menu. The
page has a ‘New’ button, a list of routes, and the
number of unused route spaces.
2. Highlight the ‘New’ field and press the ENTER key
to open a new ‘Route’ page. The name field will
state “Empty”.
3. Press the MENU key to pop-up the options menu.
With ‘Add Waypoint’ highlighted, press the ENTER
key to display the ‘Find’ menu. All categories can be
used to create a waypoint on the ‘Route’ list.
Route Page

Route, list of waypoints, and
cities. When navigating a
Route, the Distance and ETA
(arrival time) will display at
the bottom of the page.
4. Use the Find menu to locate and display the
Information page for an item. Highlight the ‘OK’
button and press the ENTER key to add it to the route.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to continue adding waypoints
to your route until completed.
To navigate the route:
1. When you have finished adding waypoints to the
Route, press the MENU key to pop-up the route
options menu.
Select Waypoints, Cities,
Exits, Points of Interest,
Addresses and Intersections to
build your route.
2. Select ‘Start Navigation’ and press the ENTER key.
The Map Page is displayed with the direction to go to the
first waypoint on the route and the distance to the first
waypoint displayed above the map.
When you begin to move, the “Direction To Go” message
will be changed to a direction arrow.
A route line on the map connects all of the route
waypoints. Travel to each waypoint on the route using the
pointer and route line for guidance.
When the route direction changes, an “Approaching Turn”
message will appear. You will notice that the route line does
not follow the roads on the map but from waypoint to waypoint.
To make the route to approximate the roads, place
waypoints at major turns along the roads (cities, intersections, etc.).

receiver turned Off to save even more on battery power.
The ‘Use Indoors’ option on the Map Page options
menu sets the operating mode to ‘GPS Off’.
Backlight Timeout - The delay can be set to stay on or
to turn off automatically 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 or 2
minutes after the last time you have pressed a keypad
key. When using the external power (cigarette lighter)
adapter, the backlight does not timeout.
Beeper - The audible ‘Beeper’ setting can be programmed to sound whenever a key is pressed or an onscreen message appears, only when a message appears,
or Off altogether.
Units - Units of measure can be set to Statute, Metric,
or Nautical (miles and miles per hour, kilometers and
kilometers per hour, or nautical miles and knots).
Language - Choose from 5 languages to display text.
Time Settings
Time Format - Allows you to choose from a 12 or 24
hour time format. When you select the 12 hour time
format, the clock will read like a standard clock with 12
hour AM and PM cycles. The 24 hour option sets the
clock to display a 24 hour cycle (Military Time).
Time Zone - Can be set to one of the U.S. Time
Zones, or by selecting ‘Other’ you can enter the UTC
Time Offset for any other time zone. Refer to the
instructions for setting UTC Time Offset and the Time

Reference
Advanced Settings
These features are best used by individuals with a working
knowledge of map grids and datums. To learn more about these
subjects, visit the National Imagery and Mapping Agency at http://
www.nima.mil or inquire at your library.
Location Format - Allows you to choose from different
grid formats. The default location format ‘hdddomm.mmm’
displays the latitude and longitude in degrees and minutes
and is the one most commonly used. Selecting a location
format will cause the map datum to change to match the
new location format.
Map Datum - Offers a selection of nearly all map
datums in common use. Every map is based on a map
datum (a reference model of the earth’s shape) and is usually listed in the title block of the map. If you are
comparing GPS coordinates to a paper map, chart, or other
reference, the map datum in this field must match the
horizontal map datum used to generate the map or other
reference. The default datum is WGS 84 (World Geodetic
Survey 1984) and should only be changed when using
maps or charts specifying a different datum. If a map
specifies a datum, use the list to find datums applicable to
the region of the map, select one that provides the best
positioning at a known point. Choose the ‘User’ datum for
custom designed grids.
North Reference - Allows control of what the eMap
considers ‘North’. True - Uses True North. Magnetic - Uses
Magnetic North, which is continually updated based on
your current location. Grid - Uses North as defined by the
selected grid. User - Uses the Magnetic North Offset
determined by the value in the Magnetic Variation Field.
1
WARNING: If User Magnetic Variation is
selected, you must periodically update the
magnetic variation as your position changes.
When using this setting, the eMap will not
automatically calculate and update the magnetic
variation at your current location. Failure to
update this setting may result in substantial
differences between the information displayed on
the unit and external references, such as a
magnetic compass.
Direction Display - Changes the ‘Direction To Go’ field
and Map Panning box on the Map Page and Find pages from
Cardinal Letters (N, S, E, W) to Numeric Degrees (147o).

It is necessary to have a working knowledge of these applications. Below is a description of each format:
GARMIN - the proprietary format used to exchange
waypoint, track, and map data with a PC.
GARMIN DGPS - Allows DGPS input using a
GARMIN beacon receiver and a standard RTCM
SC-104 format and DGPS tuning.
NMEA - supports the input and output of standard
NMEA 0183 version 2.3 data.
Text Out - allows simple ASCII text output of
location and velocity information, without any
input capabilities.
RTCM In - allows DGPS input using a standard
RTCM SC-104 format without any output capabilities.
RTCM In/NMEA Out - allows DGPS input using a
standard RTCM SC-104 format and supports the
output of standard NMEA 0183 version 2.3 data.
RTCM In/Text Out - allows DGPS input using a
standard RTCM SC-104 format and simple ASCII text
output of location and velocity information.
None - Provides no interfacing capabilities.
Select the desired Serial data Format from the list. If
‘GARMIN DGPS’ or ‘RTCM In/NMEA Out’ format is
selected, additional fields are provided to control a
GARMIN differential beacon receiver (e.g. GBR 21) directly
from your eMap unit. Tuning is automatic with ‘Scan’ or
you can enter the beacon frequency and bit rate when you
select ‘User’ from the Beacon list to manually tune the
receiver. For more information, refer to instructions
supplied with the beacon receiver.
When selecting, ‘Text Out’, ‘RCTM In’, and ‘RCTM In/
Text Out’ formats, a Baud field with a list of options will

MapSource CD-ROM data transferred to the map data
card can dramatically increase the mapping capability of the
eMap in both the amount of map detail and available maps.
MetroGuide® maps contain detailed information and are
required for using the Find Menu, Points of Interest,
Addresses and Intersections options. MapSource maps can
also provide U.S. Geological Survey topographical data,
local streets and roads, nautical navigation aids, political
boundaries and all major traffic routes for specified
geographical areas.
The eMap can display a maximum of 525 MapSource
maps depending on the size of each map and size of the data
card (MetroGuide® maps contain so much data that they fill the
capacity of an 8 MB map data card, thus allowing only one
map to be transferred onto the card). If you desire to transfer
many maps you may want to use optional 16, 32, 64, or 128
MB map data cards. Refer to Appendix A for ordering
information.
You cannot view multiple types of MapSource data in the
same location at the same time (one will draw over the other).
When you leave a MetroGuide area for example and enter the
area of a topographic map, the display will change to contour
lines. The same is true when moving from a topo map to a
MetroGuide map.
The MetroGuide maps are at the top of the hierarchy and
will replace any other map information. Here is the list of the
hierarchy for your reference beginning with those titles that
take precedence:
1. City Navigator 2. MetroGuide 3. U.S. Waterways & Lights
4. Fishing Hot Spots 5. Roads and Recreation 6. U. S. Topo
7. WorldMap
You can use the check boxes on the MapSource Info Page
to select which maps will display. Checking the box for a map
allows it to display. Removing the check prevents it from
drawing over a map you want to view. Refer to page 31 for
details.
