CAUTION: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the government of the United
States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes
that could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. Although the StreetPilot is a
precision NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore,
become unsafe.
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole responsibility of the owner/operator of the StreetPilot
to place and secure the GPS unit 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 StreetPilot 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 StreetPilot in a place where the driver or passengers are likely to
impact it in an accident or 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 StreetPilot to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is unsafe to operate
the controls of the StreetPilot while you are driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle equipped with a
StreetPilot 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.

Your StreetPilot is designed to be portable, allowing you to easily transport the unit from vehicle
to vehicle or take it with you once you reach your destination. A Dash Mount Kit consisting of a
mounting bracket, mounting base, required hardware and adhesive pads is included in the StreetPilot
package. This provides a semi-permanent method of installing the unit at the best viewing location for
the driver or passenger(s). The dash mount bracket may be either permanently or temporarily
mounted using the included adhesive materials. Follow instructions for installing the mounting
bracket on the StreetPilot as explained in the instruction sheet provided with the Dash Mount Kit
which also includes specific instructions for installation of all kit components. General instructions are
included here for your convenience.
Carefully choose the placement
of the base on the dash and
install using either the temporary
or permanent adhesive.
Slide the StreetPilot and
mounting bracket into the
base until it snaps into
place.
Slide the locking lever to the right to lock
the unit, preventing it from sliding off
the base.
To install the cigarette lighter adapter, locate the connector on the rear of the StreetPilot unit
(behind the rubber weather cap). The connector is “keyed” with a notch located between two pins.
Mate the plug on the cigarette lighter adapter to this connector by aligning the notches and pushing
the plug into the connector until fully seated (picture at right). Use care when routing the adapter
cable being certain that it does not interfere with vehicle operation in any way.

Quick-Start
Finding Your Location
Finding Your Location
The first time you use your StreetPilot to navigate, take it outside or properly mount it on the
dashboard of a vehicle in an open area with a clear view of the sky. Make certain the antenna is pointing
up. The StreetPilot also has the option of using a Simulator Mode which does not require reception of
GPS satellite signals. Refer to page 8.
When stationary, your Street Pilot should be able to calculate your position within five (5)
minutes after being turned on with a clear view of the sky.
6
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a system of 24 satellites that circle the Earth twice a day
in a very precise orbit and transmit information to Earth. The StreetPilot must continuously receive
signals from at least three of these satellites to calculate your location and track your movement. At
times, additional satellites may be needed to determine your location.
Your GPS receiver can only receive signals from satellites which are above the horizon, so it
needs to know what satellites to look for at any given time. In order to determine which satellites are
above the horizon, your GPS needs to either be told its general location (“initialized”) or given the
opportunity to find itself. Once you initialize the unit to a location, it will typically compute a position
within a few minutes.
Initialization is only necessary under the following conditions:
! The first time you use your StreetPilot (new from the factory).
! After the StreetPilot has been moved more than 500 miles (with the power off) since the
last time you used it.
! If the StreetPilot’s memory has been cleared and all internally stored data has been lost.
Once the StreetPilot has calculated your location, you will have anywhere from three to 12
satellites in view. The receiver will then continuously select the best satellites in view to update your location.
Quick-Start
If the StreetPilot is unable to calculate your location after a few minutes:
Finding Your Location
1. A ‘Poor Satellite Reception’ box appears on the screen (top right picture).
2. If you are indoors, or would otherwise like to simulate GPS location and motion, use the
ROCKER keypad to highlight Start Simulator and press the ENTER key. The Simulator Mode
starts, and the StreetPilot returns to the page it was showing beforehand.
If the StreetPilot is brand new, or if the StreetPilot unit has been moved hundreds of miles since
the last time it tracked a GPS location, use the ROCKER keypad to highlight Set New
Location and press the ENTER key.
If neither of the above applies, and you would like the StreetPilot to continue looking for GPS
satellites, use the ROCKER keypad to highlight Continue Acquiring and press the ENTER key.
The StreetPilot will return to the page is was showing beforehand.
Using the Map to Set Location
3. If you chose Set New Location, a new box appears asking what method you would like to use
for aiding the StreetPilot in determining your location.
4. If you know the general area of the continent where you are located, you can speed up the
calculation of your location by pointing to that area on a map. Use the ROCKER keypad to
highlight Use Map (top right picture) and press the ENTER key.
Otherwise, use the ROCKER keypad to select AutoLocate and press the ENTER key. The
StreetPilot will determine where you are located. This process is fully automatic and under
normal circumstances will calculate your position in 3-5 minutes when the unit has a good view
of the sky and is stationary.
5. If you chose Use Map, a continental map is displayed with an arrow pointer on it (lower right
picture). Use the ROCKER keypad to move the arrow pointer to your approximate location and
press the ENTER key. Remember, you do not need to be exact. The StreetPilot only needs an idea
where you are within a few hundred miles.
Choosing ‘Use Map’
7
Quick-Start
Using the Simulator
You can start the Simulator Mode if you are indoors where the StreetPilot is unable to receive
signals from GPS satellites. It is useful to do this when planning a trip or finding cities, Map Data
Cartridge addresses, intersections, or businesses.
To start the Simulator Mode:
1. Press the OPTION key twice. The StreetPilot displays the System Setup menu. The ‘General’ file
tab should be displayed, and the cursor should be on the ‘Simulator’ field. If not, use the
ROCKER keypad to select the ‘Simulator’ field (see top left picture).
2. Press the ENTER key and use the ROCKER keypad to select On (see bottom left picture).
Simulator “On” Selection
3. Press the ENTER key again to start the Simulator Mode.
4. Press the PAGE key or QUIT key to return to the page the StreetPilot was previously displaying.

Map Page. You are on your way to an appointment in Hereford and you want to know what direction to
go, the distance away, and how much time is required to drive there.
To find and go to a location:
1. Press FIND. A window will appear, asking what kind of location to find.
2. Use the ROCKER keypad to select Cities (top left picture ) and press ENTER. A list of the 25
nearest cities is displayed on the screen, including the direction and approximate distance. Keep in
mind that the specified cities shown will vary depending on your actual location.

Direction, Distance & Time
Reference
At the center of StreetPilot features is the Map Page (top right picture), which shows where you
are, where you have been, and where you are going. The Map Page shows your current location on the
background of highways, major thoroughfares, lakes, rivers and coastlines. If you are using and
optional MetroGuide cartridge, most city streets for that area will also be available for display. An onscreen cursor allows you to pan around to different areas of the map to view roads and geographic
features. The StreetPilot also features IN and OUT keys for instant zooming. The map portion of the
page displays your current location as a pointer icon. Nearby Personal Waypoints are shown with
names and symbols. You may select which objects are shown on the Map Page with the ‘Customize
Map’ option (see page 22).
At the middle of the Map Page is the vehicle pointer, which is in the shape of a triangle or an
arrow point. The vehicle pointer points in the direction you are moving. If the map is set to ‘North Up’
orientation, north is always at the top and the pointer turns different directions as you drive. When
using the ‘Track up” option, the map automatically rotates as you make turns, keeping the current
direction of travel at the top of the map. If the StreetPilot GPS receiver has yet to calculate your
location, there is a flashing question mark over the vehicle pointer and the status line at the bottom of
the page screen displays, ‘Acquiring Satellites’. The three satellite icons indicate the unit’s progress in
getting information from the GPS satellites (bottom right picture). Generally, the more satellite symbols
that are filled-in, the closer the unit is establishing your location.
The StreetPilot’s accuracy depends on many factors. In many instances an ‘Accuracy Circle’ is
shown on the screen. This screen shows the vehicle pointer according to its position calculations and a
circle that shows the estimated accuracy at that moment. The StreetPilot has a very high certainty that
your location is within the Accuracy Circle. A smaller circle indicates a more accurate location.

The Map Page
If you are driving along a road which is shown on the map, the vehicle pointer will often be
shown moving right down the road. This occurs when your location and direction you are driving
indicate that you probably are on that street. While the StreetPilot performs at optimum to indicate the
correct street, there are occasions when the Map Page may momentarily indicate that you are on one
street when you are actually driving on another. This is due to the inherent accuracy limitations of GPS
and the mapping information.
Zooming
The distance between
these two tick marks is
150 meters.
16
By now, you should be familiar with the Zoom IN and OUT keys, and how they change the map
display. The map scale is shown at the lower left corner of the map display area. In the example at the
left, the map scale is 150 meters between the two tick marks. If the map page is displaying MetroGuide
information from the Map Data Card, the word ‘metroguide’ is inserted below the map scale, as shown
to the right.
It is possible to zoom the Map Page to a scale which is too small for the resolution of the stored
map information to be displayed with out sacrificing the quality of the resolution. When this occurs, the
word ‘overzoom’ will be inserted below the map scale, as shown to the left.
When you are driving on city streets or roads that are within a Map Data coverage area, more
detailed map scales (for example 300 meters or less) may be more helpful, since they provide you with a
good view of all streets, not merely thoroughfares. However, you may find map scales of 2 kilometers or
greater more practical for freeway driving, especially in non-urban areas.
Reference
The top of the Map Page indicates your Driving Status:
The direction you are driving; one of eight possible directions - North (N),
South (S), East (E), West (W), NE, SE, SW, or NW.
! The name of the road or street you are driving on (if the StreetPilot has
selected a road).
! Often, the name of a nearby city or town is displayed. You may not necessarily be
within the boundaries of this city, and you may even be within the boundary of
another city. Cities are stored in the StreetPilot as points, if a city name is displayed,
it is because it is the nearest reference point to your current location.
The Navigation Information Window is shown to the right of the map display area. If the
StreetPilot is not navigating to a destination, the Navigation Information area displays a compass
indicating your direction of travel at the top, your speed and the current time of day.
Driving Status
Note:
The information displayed for the Driving
Status and the Navigation Information
window changes if the StreetPilot is
navigating to a destination, either on a Direct
GOTO or a Route. There will be more

Satellite Status View
The Satellite Status view of the Dashboard Page shows you status information that helps you
understand what the GPS receiver is doing at any given time, it is a page that you can refer back to as
you use the StreetPilot. It features a sky view of available satellites, corresponding signal strength bar
graphs, and your current accuracy. Just as in the Trip Computer view, the power source (external
power indication or battery gauge) is shown along with a light bulb to indicate that the screen backlight
is on.
Satellites are indicated on the sky view and signal strength bar graphs by their respective
number, from 01 to 32. The sky view shows the direction and elevation (angle above the horizon). The
sky view rotates as you drive different directions. The top of the sky view should be showing the
satellites that are in the sky in front of your vehicle. For example, in the picture at the left, satellite 17 is
ahead of you and 45 degrees above the horizon. Satellite 21 is straight up in the sky. Satellite 16 is
behind you and very low to the horizon.
The signal strength bar graphs depict the relative strength of the signals from each satellite being
received. The taller the bar, the stronger the signal. If the StreetPilot has received certain data from a
satellite, its bar is displayed as solid (filled in) bar. Otherwise, the bar is not filled in.

Driving on a Direct Goto
After you have used the FIND key to find someplace that you would like to go, one of the
things you can do is select Go to it to select it as a destination and the StreetPilot will help guide you to it.
The Map Page on a Direct Goto
One of the first things you will notice is that the Map Page changes (picture below):
! The Driving Status at the top of the page tells you what direction to go (North, South,
etc.), as well as the name of the destination (nearest city, or next intersecting street,
depending on the mode).
! A bold line connects your current location and your destination. Note that this line
doesn’t follow roads, it is simply the shortest distance between the two points
If the Map Page is set up to show Navigation Info (as opposed to the Full Screen Map), the
following information is also shown:
! A Direction to Go pointer: the direction from your current location to the destination,
based on the direction you are driving.
! The Distance to Go.

The other major difference when the StreetPilot is navigating on a Direct Goto is that a new page
called the Road Sign Page (top right picture) is displayed between the Map Page and the Dashboard Page.
! A pointer shows the direction from your current location to the destination, based on
your direction of travel.
! The compass direction to go (North, South, etc.), as well as the name of the destination,

Although the StreetPilot does not automatically give turn-by-turn directions when a destination
is chosen, you can select your starting point and your destination and then manually select a route by
choosing the roads and streets you wish to travel. After you have “built a route” you will see turn-byturn directions. To demonstrate a route, plan a trip from Stockholm, Sweden to the city of Oslo in
Norway.
To create a new route:
1. Press the ROUTE key to view the Route menu.

5. To have intermediate points on the route, use this same procedure to select the first turn on the
route and press the ENTER key. If there is a single road that connects the new point and the
previous point, the route will follow that road. Otherwise, your route will follow a straight line
between the two points.

6. If you desire to have more intermediate turns (points) on the route, repeat step 5 as necessary.
(Continued on page 56)
In order for the route to follow roads, it is necessary to select all intermediate turns, including on
and off-ramps. The advantages of having the route follow the roads are that the distances and times are
more accurate, and the turn guidance is more specific, among others.

* MapSource: GARMIN MapSource® is collection of detailed mapping data compiled into distinct CD-ROM’s
which can be downloaded from a PC to 8 and 16 MB data cartridges for use with the StreetPilot. The maximum
number of maps that can be used by the StreetPilot is 50. Although 16 MB cartridges allow you to download maps
containing more data, the maximum number of maps than can be used by the StreetPilot remains at 50. Many
MapSource maps, such as MetroGuides contain large amounts of data and may fill an 8 MB cartridge, thus limiting
the number of maps to only one. However, smaller maps such as Topographic and Roads and Recreation can be
stored on cartridges in greater numbers. All maps run concurrently and display when you travel through the area of
coverage or use the panning arrow to move to them. You cannot view multiple types of MapSource maps at the
same time, there is a hierarchy that places certain types of maps in front of others. Here is a list of hierarchy for
your reference: 1. MetroGuide, 2. Roads and Recreation, 3. Topographic, and 4. World Map. The type of map being
displayed will appear below the map scale bar in the lower left corner of the Map Page.
System requirements are: Pentium processor, Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0, 16 MB
minimum RAM, 10 MB free hard disk space, CD-ROM drive, 256-color display adapter and monitor, mouse or
other pointing device. Uses data transfer cable provided with the StreetPilot. Contact your GARMIN Dealer or
GARMIN Customer Service to order MapSource CD-ROM’s.

Wiring/Interfaces
Wiring/Interfaces
Interface formats are selected from the System Setup page next to the “Comm Port” tab,
described on page 35. The input/output lines on your StreetPilot are RS-232 compatible, allowing easy
interface to a wide range of external devices, including PCs, differential beacon receivers, marine
autopilots and/or a second GPS receiver.
The NMEA 0183 version 2.0 interface format is supported by the StreetPilot and enables the
unit to drive up to three NMEA devices:
NMEA 0183 version 2.0 Approved sentences:
GPGGA, GPGLL, GPGSA, GPGSV, GPRMB, GPRMC, GPRTE, GPWPL, GPBOD
GARMIN proprietary sentences:
PGRME (estimated error), PGRMM (map datum), PGRMZ (altitude), PSLIB
(beacon receiver control)
DGPS (Differential GPS) corrections are accepted in RTCM SC-104 version 2.0 format through
the Data In line. The GARMIN GBR 21 is the recommended beacon receiver for use with the
StreetPilot. Other beacon receivers with the correct RTCM format may be used, but may not correctly
display status or allow tuning control from the GPS unit.
Refer to page 68 for information about interface connection details.
