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.
• Do not mount the unit over airbag panels or in the field of airbag deployment. Airbags can propel objects in their path toward the
driver or passengers.
• Do not mount the unit in a place where the driver or passengers could impact it in a collision.
• Use a mount to install the unit in your vehicle. Do not place unit unsecured on vehicle dashboard.
Minimize the amount of time spent viewing the screen of the Quest while driving. Do not input destinations, change settings, or access any
functions requiring prolonged use of the unit’s controls while driving. Pull over before attempting such operations.
When navigating, carefully compare information displayed on the Quest to all available navigation sources, including information from
other 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 lithium-ion 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 http://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.
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.
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 should not be used to determine ground proximity for aircraft navigation.
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, including the Quest.
Although the Quest is a precision navigation system, any navigation system can be misused or misinterpreted and, therefore, become unsafe.
Important Information
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 degree. This is
particularly true outside the United States, where complete and accurate digital data is either not available or prohibitively expensive.
NOTICE TO STATE OF CALIFORNIA DRIVERS: California Vehicle Code Section 26708 (a) (1) provides that “No person shall drive any
motor vehicle with any object or material placed, displayed, installed, affixed, or applied upon the windshield or side or rear windows.” Drivers
in California should not use the suction mount on their windshield or side or rear windows. Garmin does not take any responsibility for any fines,
penalties, or damages that may be incurred as a result of disregarding this notice. A disk for attaching the suction mount to a vehicle’s dashboard
is enclosed.

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
Clean the unit’s outer casing (except for the screen) using 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. You may use
water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner if needed. To use these
cleaners, apply the liquid to the cloth and wipe the screen.
Storage
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.
Avoid Theft
Using the Quest Responsibly
The Quest is equipped with a Safe Mode feature to improve
driver safety. When your vehicle is moving, 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.
To avoid theft, take your Quest with you or remove it from view
when you leave your vehicle.

Step 2: Press the FIND key. The Find Menu appears.
This tutorial guides you through the steps for finding a restaurant
in your area and then creating a route to it. If you have never used
a Quest or a GPS unit before, try this simple task. You will see that
using your Quest is fast and easy.
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 the road so that it can have the best view of the sky.
Step 1: If you have not already done so, 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
6 if you need additional instructions. Turn on the Quest. When
your Quest has established a satellite fix, it displays a “Ready to
Navigate” message.

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).
Quest Owner’s Manual
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.
43
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.

Sky View and Signal Strength Bars
The sky view and signal strength bars indicate which satellites 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 a “bird’s eye” 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.
The status bar displays one of the following messages:
Searching for Satellites—the GPS receiver is looking for any
available satellites in view.
Locating Satellites—the GPS receiver is locating satellites and
determining which ones are visible at your location.
Acquiring Satellites—the GPS receiver is collecting data from
available satellites but has not collected enough data to calculate a
position fix.
Satellite status bar
Ready to Navigate—the Quest is ready to navigate routes.
Quest Owner’s Manual
2D Navigation—at least three satellites with good geometry have
been found; a two-dimensional position fix (latitude and longitude)
is being calculated. You might need to enter your elevation if the
receiver only has a 2D fix. Displays “2D Differential” if you are
tracking one of the WAAS satellites.
3D Navigation—at least four satellites with good geometry have
been found; your location is now being calculated in latitude,
longitude, and elevation. Displays “3D Differential” if you are
tracking one of the WAAS satellites.
Lost Satellite Reception—the GPS receiver has temporarily lost
satellite reception.
Poor GPS Coverage—the GPS receiver is not tracking enough
satellites for a 2D or 3D fix due to bad satellite geometry or due to
a shaded antenna, which can be caused from very dense overhead
tress or tall buildings.
Receiver Not Usable—the Quest is unusable, possibly due to
incorrect initialization or abnormal satellite conditions. Turn
the unit off and back on to reset and re-initialize the receiver if
necessary.
GPS is Off—the GPS receiver has been turned off and cannot be
used for navigation.

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.
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.

the suction cup mount to the disk. Adjust the mount as
necessary.
Installing the Mounting Disk
Select a suitable location on your dashboard to place the mounting
disk. Be sure to select a location where the unit has an unobstructed
view of the sky and does not interfere with the driver’s view of the
road or obstruct any controls in the vehicle.
WARNING: The mounting disk affixes to your dashboard with
permanent adhesive that is extremely difficult to remove after it is
installed.

FCC Compliance
The Quest complies with Part 15 of the FCC interference limits
for Class B digital devices FOR HOME OR OFFICE USE. These
limits are designed to provide more reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation, and are more
stringent than “outdoor” requirements.
Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions: (1)
This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and may cause harmful interference to radio
communications if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user
is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
Quest Owner’s Manual
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
The Quest does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Repairs
should only be made by an authorized Garmin service center.
Unauthorized repairs or modifications could result in permanent
damage to the equipment, and void your warranty and your
authority to operate this device under Part 15 regulations.
