GPS - the Global Positioning System - is a navigation revolution. It’s a technology that pinpoints a user’s location anywhere in
the world, 24 hours a day, regardless of the weather. Designed by
the United States’ Department of Defense for use by the military,
GPS was made available to civilians for use in aviation, marine
surveying and general outdoor/recreation markets. Today, millions
of people utilize GPS technology to hunt, fish, hike, fly, cruise, sail
and geocache.
To learn more, read Garmin’s ‘GPS Guide for Beginners’ available
through the Garmin website.

The Map Page shows where you are (the animated figure) and provides a picture of
where you are going. As you travel (the animated figure ‘walks’) and leaves a ‘trail’ (track
log). Waypoint names and symbols are also shown on the map.
To help you better visualize the ‘real world’, Geko 101 automatically rotates the map
as you move, so that waypoints that are ahead of you are always displayed in front of the
animated figure. The Heading Indicator shows the direction you are heading.
To make sure you can see your entire trip, you can change the map scale (from 80 feet
to 800 miles) by pressing and holding the UP button to view a larger area, and the DOWN
button for viewing a smaller area.

The following options are available:
• Map Setup: Allows you to adjust the map settings including:
Map Page
Options
Orient Map (Ahead or Northward): When ‘AHEAD’ is selected, the top of the
map is oriented in the direction you are currently moving. When ‘NORTHWARD’
is selected, the map is always oriented to the North.
Selecting ‘PAN TRACK
LOG’ from the Map Page
options allows you to
move the pointer to any
point on the track log and
then create a Waypoint or
navigate to it.
Auto Zoom (On or Off): When ‘AUTO ZOOM’ is turned on, the map automatically adjusts its scale to display your entire navigating route until you manually
change the zoom level. When it’s turned off, you must press the UP or DOWN
button to select the appropriate map scale.
Waypoints (Show or Hide): Allows you to view the map with or without waypoints.
The following options are not shown if you do not have a track log:
• Pan Track Log: ‘PAN TRACK LOG’ allows you to move the pointer to any point along
the track and then start a TRACBACK, a GOTO, MARK a waypoint, or ZOOM In or Out.
• Clear Track Log: The ‘CLEAR TRACK LOG’ clears the track log which is created automatically.
The following option is not shown if you are not actively navigating:
• Stop Navigation: ‘STOP NAVIGATION’ stops any active navigation (navigation means
there is a destination waypoint).

Using the Track Log
The Geko 101 draws an electronic breadcrumb trail or ‘track log’ on the Map Page as
you travel. The track log starts recording as soon as the Geko 101 gets a location fix.
Track Logs
To make use of the track log, select the ‘PAN TRACK LOG’ option to show a pointer
which moves along the track log when you press the UP or DOWN button. Press the OK
button to see the four choices ‘TRACBACK’, ‘GOTO’, ‘MARK’ and ‘ZOOM’.
‘CLEAR’ the track log before
starting a new trip.
‘TracBack’ will guide you to where you started by following the track log that you left
behind, allowing you to return along a traveled path without marking any waypoints. For
the best results, clear the track log before you start traveling because when the track log is
full, the new track points will overwrite the oldest track points.
‘GOTO’ will guide you from your current location to the waypoint selected while
‘Mark’ creates a new waypoint for later use. ‘Mark’ is explained in detail begining on page
9. ‘Zoom’ adjusts the level of map detail viewable.
To clear the track log:
1. Press the OK button while on the Map Page to display the Map Page Options.
2. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight ‘CLEAR TRACK LOG’ and press the OK
button.

UNITS Page
Using the Geko 101 with a paper map increases the navigation power of each. To use a
map in conjunction with the Geko 101, you must select the position format, map datum,
map units, and north reference to match the map. The Geko 101 supports both the UTM/
UPS and latitude/longitude grids, which define position location for the entire globe.
Position Format
The default position format (and the one most commonly used) for the Geko 101 is
latitude and longitude in degrees and minutes (hdddº mm.mmm’). Choose from 11 other
position formats or choose the ‘User’ position format to approximate custom-designed grids.
For more information on grids and datum we recommend you visit the National Imagery
and Mapping Agency at http://www.nima.mil.
To change the Position Format (grid):
Twelve position formats are
available in the Geko 101.
1. From the UNITS Page press the UP or DOWN button to highlight the ‘POSITION FRMT’
field and press the OK button.
2. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight the desired format and press the OK button.
3. Press the PAGE button to return to the MENU page.
Map Datums
Data Entry Pages exist for
the User Grid Format and
the User Datum Setup.
A map datum is a reference model of the earth’s shape. Every map uses a map datum
which is usually listed in the title block of the map. The default datum in the Geko 101 is
WGS 84 (World Geodetic Survey, 1984). You should only change the datum if you are using
maps or charts that specify a different datum. Choose the ‘User’ datum if using a map with
custom-designed grids.

‘MAGNETIC’ north is the
default north reference
setting.
North Reference
‘Reference’ refers to the orientation of a map’s grid. Map makers try to align the vertical
lines on a map with True North. True North is the direction from any location on the
earth’s surface to the ‘north pole’. Maps are typically referenced to true north. Because a
compass points to magnetic north, not true north, maps indicate the difference between
true and magnetic north with a measurement called ‘declination’. The amount of declination changes as you move around the earth. Magnetic North is the direction in which a
compass needle points.
The Geko 101 bearings will correspond to the compass if the Geko 101 is set to
magnetic north. Due to errors introduced when map makers flatten the earth’s sphere onto
paper, not all of the grid lines drawn on the map point exactly to the north pole, so the
north indicated by the grid lines is called ‘Grid North’. The difference, however, is usually
small enough that ‘Grid’ north can be considered the same as True North for travelling on
land. If necessary, manually correct for the difference between Grid North and True North.
To change the North Reference:
1. From the MENU Page press the UP or DOWN button to highlight ‘UNITS’ and then
press the OK button to display the UNITS page.
2. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight the ‘NORTH REF’ field and press the OK
button.
3. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight your selection and then press the OK

The System Page allows you to choose from three modes of operation (Normal, Battery
Save, DEMO), change the display back light timeout setting, and adjust the display contrast.
GPS Mode
Menu Page
System Page
The GPS receiver is always ‘ON’ when it’s in ‘NORMAL’ mode. The normal mode is more
responsive to sudden turns or change of speed/acceleration.
The SYSTEM Page allows
you to change the GPS
Mode, the Light Timeout
setting and the contrast
setting.
When the Geko 101 is in ‘BATTERY SAVE’ mode, the GPS receiver turns on and off
alternatively to conserve power.
The ‘DEMO’ mode is designed for dealers to show the features and functions of the
Geko 101 to potential customers inside a closed building where satellite reception is not
possible. There is no navigation possible in ‘DEMO’ mode. If you select the ‘DEMO’ mode, a
window displays at the bottom of the screen asking you to verify that you want to turn the
GPS off (the unit will stop tracking satellites, but not power off).
To change the GPS mode:
1. From the MENU Page press the UP or DOWN button to highlight the ‘SYSTEM’ field.
Press the OK button to display the SYSTEM Page.
2. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight ‘GPS MODE’ field and press the OK button.
3. Press the UP or DOWN button to highlight your selection and press the OK button.
4. Press the PAGE button to return to the SYSTEM page.
A ‘BATTERY LOW’ message displays at the bottom of every page
when there are approximately ten
minutes of battery life left (when
using alkaline batteries).

The temperature rating for the Geko 101 may exceed the usable range of some batteries. Alkaline batteries can
rupture at high temperatures. Modifications or other applications will void the product warranty.
2
Alkaline batteries lose a significant amount of their capacity as temperature decreases. Use lithium batteries when
operating the Geko 101 in below-freezing conditions. Extensive use of screen backlighting will significantly reduce
battery life.
