Welcome
Welcome to MEDION-Navigator, the navigation software for your Pocket PC.
MEDION-Navigator will give you voice directions as well as providing map and arrow displays
to guide you to your destination so that you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you will
arrive at the right place. It can also be used as an electronic street map outside the car.
Beside the functions already known from the previous version of the MEDION-Navigator like
manual block of road sections, import of adresses from the Contacts folder in your Pocket PC,
route planning with vias etc., with the new version you can now search for special destinations
in the vicinity of your car or to enter a postal code for the destination town instead of its name.
The system is ready for use in any vehicle within a few seconds, the enclosed car holder is
quick and easy to install. When fitting it in your vehicle, make sure the car holder is attached
firmly and that it is outside the reach of airbags.
New program functions
Local search
When planning your route you can search for special destinations in the vicinity of your
current position.
Entering postal codes
When searching for a location, you can enter both the name or the postal code of the
town.
Selection of countries
Before entering the destination place, you may select the destination country. After this
only the places of the selected country will be displayed.
Error tolerant input of places
The system also finds incompletely entered place names, e.g. "Bradford" will be found
when only "ford" is entered.
Indication of miles or kilometres
You can choose whether you want the distances to be shown in kilometres/metres or in
miles/yards.
Selection of maps
The program finds all maps on all kind of data media (including memory extension
cards) and displays them in a list. The desired map can then be easily selected from the
list.

1.3 Information about safety
1.3.1
Safety information concerning navigation
› Drivers use MEDION-Navigator at their own risk.
› To protect yourself and others from accidents please do not operate the navigation system
while driving.
› If you have not understood the voice directions or if you are not sure what to do at the
next crossroads, you can quickly check by referring to the map or arrow display.
› However, you should only look at the display when it is safe for you to do so!
› The road layout and traffic signs take precedence over the directions given by the
navigation system.
› Only follow the MEDION-Navigator instructions if the traffic situation and regulations
permit! MEDION-Navigator will guide you to your destination even if you have to deviate
from the planned route.
› It is best to plan your route before you set off. If you want to enter a new route when you
are already travelling, simply pull off at the next car park or services.
1.3.2
›
›
›

2.1 Installing the car holder with Pocket PC
Firmly click the bracket for the Pocket PC into the swan-neck attachment with the suction cup.
› Attach the swan-neck attachment to the windscreen using the suction cup: first make sure
the windscreen and the suction are clean.
› Place the Pocket PC firmly in the bracket and press both jaws of the bracket together so
that the Pocket PC is held firmly in place.
› Connect the adapter to the bottom of the Pocket PC.
2.2 Installing the GPS receiver
2.2.1
Installation
The GPS receiver is designed to be installed inside the vehicle.
Important - please note!
GPS reception may be subject to interference if the windscreen is a heated windscreen, if a
windscreen aerial is fitted or if the windscreen is metallised.
› Place the GPS receiver as far forwards as possible under the windscreen. Lay it flat on the
instrument panel and fix it in position on the instrument panel with Velcro tape. To do this
fix one side of the Velcro tape to the instrument panel and the other side to the GPS
receiver.
› Insert the GPS connector cable in the socket that connects the receiver to the Pocket PC
and the power supply.
› Push the power supply plug into the cigarette lighter socket.
Important - please note!
Take the plug for the power supply to the GPS receiver out of the cigarette lighter socket
at the end of the journey or if you are leaving the car parked for a longer period. Failure to
do so might result in a flat battery.
2.2.2
Initialising the GPS receiver
Please switch on the Pocket PC at the main switch.
When starting up the GPS receiver for the very first time, leave it connected to the power
supply for 1 to 2 hours after initialisation to make sure that the battery is fully charged.
This will ensure that the GPS receiver is ready for operation within just a few seconds the
next time you want to use it.
The GPS symbol shown in the upper right-hand corner of the title bar indicates the state of
initialisation. An exclamation mark after a red symbol (symbol No GPS
) here
indicates that the system has not found a receiver; a red symbol with a number (symbol
No signal
) indicates that a receiver has been found but that the signal is not strong
enough for navigation; a green symbol with a number (symbol GPS
) indicates that
the receiver is ready for operation and that you can start your journey. The number shown
beside the two symbols No Signal and GPS indicates the number of received satellites
and consequently the quality of the GPS signal. For further information please refer to
Displaying the GPS status, page 20
15
The GPS receiver must be initialised before the navigation system is used for the first time.
This process is run automatically as soon as you have connected the GPS receiver and the
power supply is established. If the GPS receiver has been connected to COM 1, the GPS
to No signal
symbol in the top right-hand corner will change from No GPS
within 5 seconds.
As soon as the GPS symbol has changed from No Signal
to GPS
, initialisation
has been completed and you can start your journey. Please note that the GPS receiver may
require up to 20 minutes to determine your position when it is first initialised. The power
supply should not be interrupted during this process, as this would also interrupt the reception
of satellite data. You would then have to start again from the beginning the next time you
switch the unit on. We recommend that you wait at least 15 minutes when you use the GPS
is
receiver for the first time, even if the symbol for a GPS signal being present
displayed.
This initialisation process only gas to be carried out once when you first use the system. After
this is will take no more than 30 seconds before a GPS signal is present.
If the GPS receiver has not been used for a longer period (about one week) it may require
re-initialisation. However, it will take 2 minutes max. to initialise the receiver.
2.2.3
Possible sources of error when initialising the GPS receiver
If the symbol No GPS
is still displayed even though the system has been correctly
installed, this may be due to one of two reasons:
A.
The GPS receiver is connected to a different port – not COM 1
› Touch Settings in the MAIN MENU.
› Select GPS configuration from the drop-down menu in the SETTINGS window.
› Select another COM port from the second dropdown list and tap on Save changes. If the
GPS symbol shown in the top right-hand corner changes from No GPS
to No Signal
or GPS
, you have selected the correct COM port and can start your journey.
› Otherwise, repeat these steps by selecting the next COM port in the list.
B.
The vehicle does not have a permanent power supply
› It is possible that the vehicle does not have a permanent power supply if the GPS symbol
No GPS
COM ports.
is displayed in the S E T T I N G S window even after you have checked all the
› Close the program, switch on the ignition and restart the navigation software.
The symbol GPS
should be shown after a short while. In future always switch on the
ignition first and then restart the navigation software.

GPS status.
No GPS receiver
Red symbol with exclamation mark: no GPS receiver
connected or the power supply is interrupted.
No GPS signal
Red symbol + number of satellites received: a GPS receiver is
connected, but the signal is not suitable for navigation. This
may be the case if you are in an enclosed building.
GPS
Green symbol + number of satellites received: a GPS signal is
present. Navigation can be started.
See also: 2.2.2 Initialising the GPS receiver, page 15

1.4 Displaying the GPS window
The GPS window can be opened from any window:
›
Touch the GPS symbol in the upper right-hand corners of the title bar.
The following information is displayed about the current GPS status:
A. Greenwich Mean Time: London time without
summer time
B.
Current Position: Degrees of longitude east and
degrees of latitude north
C.
Number of satellites received
D. H-DOP (Horizontal Dilution of Precision): This
indicates the quality of position determination.
Theoretically any value from 0 to 50 is possible,
with the following being applicable: the smaller the
value, the more accurate the position determination
(value 0 = no deviation from the actual position). In
practice any value < 0.8 is not possible using a GPS
receiver; the value of 0.8 is considered to be very
accurate, while values up to 8 are acceptable.
E.
Quality Index: This indicates whether the GPS receiver is providing a signal that is
suitable for navigation. It can only accept values of 0 or 1. A Quality Index value of 1
indicates that an adequate signal is present, while a value of 0 indicates that the signal is
not suitable for navigation. The value is also reflected in the GPS symbol display: If the
(red symbol) appears, if the value equals
value equals zero, the symbol No signal
one, the green symbol GPS
is shown.
F.
Closes the GPS window.
The Quality Index and H-DOP may be useful indicators for troubleshooting if problems
should arise with your GPS receiver and you want to use our customer support service. We
therefore recommend that you write down these values as well as all the other information
displayed in the GPS window before contacting customer support.
Please note:
If no GPS receiver is connected or if the power supply is interrupted (symbol
window merely shows the information that no GPS receiver has been found.

3.1 General information about GPS
The Global Positioning System, or GPS for short, is a satellite-based system used to determine
the geographical position of a GPS receiver on the earth’s surface.
The system is based on 24 satellites that circle the earth along defined paths. They send out
signals that are received by the GPS receiver, allowing the receiver to calculate its position in
terms of geographical longitude and latitude.
The receiver needs at least 3 satellites for an initial fix on the position. However, while
travelling, the GPS receiver can determine the position even if there are fewer than 3 satellites
within range for a few seconds, provided that it has already calculated a position before that.
To be able to determine the position correctly, the receiver needs to receive direct signals from
the GPS satellites, without any delay. In other words, the GPS receiver needs a “clear view” of
the satellites. Metallic materials, such as the car roof, screen out these signals, high-rise
buildings on both sides reduce the receiver’s coverage and glass surfaces may reflect the
satellite signals, which could reduce the receiver’s performance. Dense foliage, e.g. an avenue
of trees, may also reduce the quality of reception on account of the water in the leaves.
Map material is also required to allow the GPS signals to be used for navigation. This map
material must be available in a digitised, vectorised form so that the route can be calculated
with the aid of mathematical functions. This involves the map data being reconciled with the
incoming signal so that the route to a defined destination point can be calculated.
3.2 Entering a destination

There are four available options for inputting the destination:
You can select a destination from the database for place names.
You can select special destinations in the vicinity of the car.
You can select saved destinations.
You can select a destination from the MS Outlook Contacts list.
Once you have planned your route in the route planning mode, you can also define one of the
points on the route as the destination point if the GPS receiver is connected. This can be done
either with or without the route having been calculated in advance.
For detailed instructions please refer to:
6.10 Special features when using the route planner with a GPS receiver, page 51.

With the help of the route planning function, which can also be used without GPS, you can
create routes with a starting point, any number of vias (intermediate points) and a destination
point. Every route point is added to the list of route points and can be used, if the GPS receiver
is connector, directly as a target point for navigation without prior route calculation. Once the
route options have been determined, the route is calculated and shown with a coloured
background on the map. A Toolbar appears in the lower right-hand section of the map and this
can be used to change the map display. The route can be shown on the map or detailed in the
route list. This provides details of the distance and the travel time (duration) from one route
point to the next, as well as the total distance and duration. If GPS reception has been
established, the navigation process can also be started from here to the appropriate
highlighted entry.
6.1 Opening route planning

6.10 Special features when using the route planner with a GPS
receiver
6.10.1 Using route points and route lists for navigation
In conjunction with a GPS receiver you can use all route points directly as destination points
for the navigation process, without first having to display the route on the map. Since all the
entered route points are saved in a list that remains stored if you have exited the program and
then restart it, you can plan a route at home if you wish, and then use it for navigation.
Assuming that you calculated a route with several vias the night before and now want to use
that route for navigation, you should proceed as follows:
› Touch Route planning in the M A I N
MENU.
A list opens up showing the route points that you have
used to calculate your route (see illustration).
› Highlight the first route point and touch Start
navigation. Please note that the highlighted route
point is always used as the destination point!
› Select the desired route option.
› Touch the Start navigation button again.
› MEDION-Navigator now calculates the route from
your current position to the first route point
(Würzburg, Berliner Platz, see illustration) and
switches to navigation mode.
› If no valid GPS signal is available at this stage, a
yellow message window will open to tell you that
this is the case. As soon as a suitable GPS signal is
present, the window closes automatically and
navigation starts.
› As soon as you have reached your destination,
touch Stop.
› Then touch Next destination.
A route is now calculated from your current position to the next route point in the list
(Würzburg, Haafstraße).
› Repeat this process until you have reached the destination point, i.e. until you have
navigated to the last route point in the list.
If you now touch Stop, the entry Next destination will no longer be displayed.
After calculating the route
If you want to have the route calculated before you start navigation so that you can look at the
map, you should proceed as follows:
› Touch Calculate route.
› Select the desired route options.
› Touch the Show on map button.
The route is calculated and displayed on the map.
51
› Touch Show route list to open the route list.
› Highlight the first route section in the list and
touch Start navigation.
MEDION-Navigator now calculates a route from
your current position to the first, highlighted entry in
the route list.
Please note that the starting point of the route
(Würzburg, Rennweger Ring) is replaced by your
current position, i.e. a route is calculated from your
current position to Würzburg, Berliner Platz.
If no valid GPS signal is available at this stage, a
yellow message window will open to tell you that
this is the case. As soon as a suitable GPS signal is
present, the window closes automatically and
navigation starts.
› As soon as you have reached your destination,
touch Stop.
› Then touch Next destination.
A route is now calculated from your current position
to the next route point in the list (Würzburg,
Haafstraße).
› Repeat this process until you have reached the
destination point, i.e. until you have navigated to
the last route point in the list.
If you now touch Stop, the entry Next destination
will no longer be displayed.

MAP
TRANSFER
Topics covered in this chapter:
3.1 General information

3.2 Map transfer
page 64
63
3.1 General information
Maps are transferred using the MapExport Tool, which generates the map data for use in
MS® Windows Pocket PC 2002/2003.
The map transfer is a two-step operation:
1. Storing the generated map on the PC’s hard disk (map export)
2. Transferring the map from the hard disk to the Pocket PC or to a memory expansion unit
via a map reading device (map transfer).
These two steps may be carried out directly one after the other, but this is not essential. Since
every map that is generated is stored on your PC’s hard disk, you can transfer the map to the
Pocket PC at a later stage if you wish. This might be sensible if you are generating several map
sections first and want to save them on the hard disk before transferring them to the Pocket
PC.
Two progress bars indicate the progress of the map export. Depending on the data volume and
your PC’s performance it may take several hours to generate a map. The subsequent transfer
to the Pocket PC or to a Pocket PC memory expansion unit via a map reading device takes up
to 2 hours.
If you want to transfer the supplied and already exported map of GB+Ireland with major road
network of Europe to your PDA, you can do this by transferring it directly to the PDA from
the relevant map CD-ROM, i.e. without first storing the map section on the hard drive of your
Desktop PC.

› Select a street in the Street input field, just as described in searching for a town
(Fig.3, item E).
If the database contains house numbers for the selected street, you can enter a house number
in the No. field to specify the route point in greater detail (Fig.3, item F). If the house
number entered exists, the lamp turns green; if the lamp turns red, this means that the house
number you have entered does not exist.
The No. field is disabled if the database does not contain any house numbers for the street
selected.
There are house numbers for the street selected.
The house number entered exists for the street selected.
There are no house numbers for the street selected.

4.1.2
Entering the radius around the route points
A circular section with a specified radius is exported for every route point. This ensures that
any navigation can also be carried out at a later stage away from the route and in the starting
or destination area.
› Use the two arrow keys to the right of the Radius column to enter the desired radius for
each particular route point. You can choose any distance between 3 km and 50 km max.
The default value is 10 km (see Fig.4, item B).

Selecting the route options
› Click on the Route options button to open the window of the same name
(see Fig.4, item D).
› Click on one of the option buttons – Quick
route / Short route – to specify the route
type to be calculated.
› You can enable the options Avoid
motorways, Avoid ferries and Avoid toll
roads to determine whether these should
be included or avoided, if possible, when
planning the route.
› If you do not select an option, the standard route calculated is the Quick route and
motorways, ferries and toll roads are included in the route calculation.
› Click on the Show corridor button (see Fig.4, item F) to calculate the route based on
your inputs so far and to display the results on the map. Route calculation is optional. If no
route calculation is carried out before exporting, the program automatically calculates the
route as soon as you start the exporting process by clicking on the Create map button.
The route is highlighted in blue, with the radius and corridor width (hatched in grey) being
displayed on the map Fig.4, item N). The flags shown on the map mark the route points
(Fig.4, item O). At the same time the distance and time to the next route point is shown in
the Duration column of the route points list beside each route point (see Fig.4, item A).
The total length (distance) and total duration of the route are shown underneath the last route
point to the right of the Total field (see Fig.4, item C).
› The Information field contains information about the memory requirement (Max. data
volume) for the selected route (see Fig.4, item G).
If the calculated memory requirement is greater than 490 MB, a message window appears,
prompting you to reduce the size of the map by deleting route points or by decreasing the
corridor width.

Here are some possible solutions to the problems most frequently reported to our customer support
service in relation to the MEDION-Navigator software.
If the symbol No GPS
is still displayed even though the system has been correctly
installed and the GPS receiver has been correctly connected, this may be due to one of the
following reasons:
Check that the LED on the connector inserted in the cigarette lighter socket is lit. If not,
please check the fuse in the connector.
A.
The initialisation of the COM port was not successful:
› Touch Settings in the M A I N
MENU.
› Select GPS configuration from the drop-down menu in the S E T T I N G S window.
› Reactivate COM1.
› Touch Save changes.
The GPS receiver is connected to a different port – not COM 1:
B.
› Touch Settings in the M A I N
MENU.
› Select GPS configuration from the drop-down menu in the S E T T I N G S window.
› Enable COM1 – COM6 ports one after the other while keeping an eye on the GPS symbols
shown in the top right-hand corner: if this changes from
have selected the correct COM port.

› Touch Save changes.
The
symbol does not change to
.
A.
When you first use the MEDION-Navigator it can take up to 20 minutes before the GPS
receiver has found all satellites and has been initialised.
See also: 2.2.2 Initialising the GPS receiver, page 15.
B.
GPS reception may be subject to interference if the windscreen is a heated windscreen or
if the windscreen is metallised. Using a GPS receiver inside the car can therefore impair
the function of the navigation system considerably and is not recommended. You should
use a GPS receiver that can be fitted on the outside of the vehicle.
The
symbol frequently changes to
.
To be able to determine the position correctly, the receiver needs to receive direct signals from
the GPS satellites, without any delay. In other words, the GPS receiver needs a “clear view” of
the satellites. Metallic materials, such as the car roof, screen out these signals, high-rise
buildings on both sides reduce the receiver’s coverage and glass surfaces may reflect the
satellite signals, which could reduce the receiver’s performance. Dense foliage, e.g. an avenue
of trees, may also reduce the quality of reception on account of the water in the leaves.
82
The list of destinations is not accepting addresses from Outlook/Contacts
A.
Please note that only the addresses contained in the map data stock can be incorporated.
If an address cannot be uniquely allocated, e.g. if the map contains several locations with
the same place name, these will be listed together with the postal code and district.
Highlight the appropriate location and touch OK. If an address cannot be allocated at all,
e.g. because no town was specified or because the town was not found on the map, a
message appears to indicate that the address was not found. If this happens the address
will not appear in the Contacts list.
B.
Please note that the following information
First name and surname
Town and postal code
Street and house number
must have been entered in the correct fields of your Outlook/Contacts directory. The
MEDION-Navigator tries to allocate the entries in the above-mentioned fields to locations on
the map. For instance, if you have also entered the details of the town and the postal code in
the Street field in Outlook/Contacts, MEDION-Navigator will not be able to find this entry in
the map. Consequently it cannot allocated the address to a destination.
When I export the map the MapExport Tool no longer responds to inputs
The MapExport Tool has to carry out a large number of complicated algorithms to export the
map to the Pocket PC. The MapExport Tool is intensely busy with the algorithms and is not
accepting any inputs because of the PC’s performance. Wait until MapExport has exported the
map section, the routes or the entire map.
Please note that exporting an entire map can take several hours, depending on the computing
power of the PC.
The installation on the Pocket PC was unsuccessful, even though a link was
established with ActiveSync®
Install the MEDION-Navigator on the Pocket PC as follows:
› In the A C T I V E S Y N C ® window click on the Extras/Software menu.
› Enable the check box for “MEDION-Navigator”.
› Click on OK.
If the installation is still not carried out, please reinstall the ActiveSync® program.
MEDION-Navigator is very slow during route planning and navigation and is
very sluggish on entries
› Please exit MEDION-Navigator.
› Then check how much program memory is available on your Pocket PC (see user’s guide
for your Pocket PC).
To function properly, the MEDION-Navigator requires at least 10 MB free program
memory on your Pocket PC.
› If necessary, carry out a soft reset on the Pocket PC.
