Operating instructions
General information
Operating the system while driving
Allowing yourself to be distracted by the TravelPilot RGS 06 can lead to a situation where you are
“driving blind”.
If you are not paying attention to the current traffic
situation around you, you could cause a serious accident.
Please consider the fact that at a speed of 50 km/h you
are travelling 14 m every second.
• Before starting off on your journey, make sure you
have familiarised yourself with the system.
• While you are driving, only use the voice output
and directional symbols on the monitor.
• Stop your vehicle at a suitable location if you wish
to re-program the TravelPilot RGS 06 or look up
more detailed information.
Route guidance
The current traffic routing situation can differ from
the data stored on the CD-ROM.
Due to system limitations, the TravelPilot RGS 06
cannot warn of altered traffic routing conditions e.g. due
to road construction measures. If you do not pay
attention to the actual traffic routing conditions, there is
a danger that you will cause a serious accident. Furthermore, you will be violating road traffic regulations.
• Please ensure that you take notice of signs relating
to the current traffic routing situation. As the driver,
you are solely responsible for traffic safety.
• Use the latest CD-ROM for the TravelPilot
RGS 08. Ask your dealer for the latest update.

The volume and tone of the voice output can be adjusted.
The monitor displays the same information visually. Furthermore, the name of the street that the vehicle is presently driving down is displayed as well as the current distance
to the destination. Prior to taking a turning, the name of the
road that is to be turned into is also displayed.
If you did not follow a suggested direction, a new route to
the destination will be calculated within a few seconds. So,
for instance, this means that you can by all means take a
“secret route around the houses” that you are familiar with
even though the TravelPilot has at the time given you other
directions.
The system knows where one-way streets, areas restricted
to traffic (e.g. pedestrian precincts, etc.) and no-left or noright turns are situated, and takes these into account when
calculating routes for passenger cars.
Area of use
The TravelPilot RGS 06 has been designed for use
in passenger cars.
The CD-ROM currently does not include any limitations
relating to lorries and buses such as height restrictions
or maximum permitted loads. If these are disregarded,
there is a danger that you will cause an accident.
Furthermore, you will be violating road traffic regulations.
• The TravelPilot RGS 06 can only be used, without
any limitations applying, in passenger cars.
Product information

13
Start guidance
If the destination has been entered, the cursor
will automatically be positioned in front of the
Start guidance menu item.
By pressing the ENT key, the Route options
menu will appear. The following options for
calculating a route are available:
Fast route
A route is calculated that requires as short a
journey time as possible to your destination.
Short route
An optimised route is calculated to your destination. The route is kept as short as possible.
Individual
This menu item allows you to include or exclude the Motorway, Ferry and Toll options
for the route calculation. To do so, move the
cursor in front of the required option and confirm your selection by pressing the ENT key.
By repeatedly pressing the ENT key, the selected option can be activated (with) or deactivated (w/o i.e. without). Furthermore, using
this same method of selection with the Route
menu item, you can set whether a quick or
short route should be calculated on the basis
of the selected options. Any combination of
options can be selected (e.g. with motorway with ferry - no toll - short route).
14
After you have selected the options you require, position the cursor in front of Start guidance and begin the route calculation process
by pressing the ENT key.
Note:
A situation my arise where a route is calculated which includes an option that you actually
wanted excluded when making your selections. If, for example, you selected the “without
ferry” option but your destination is only reachable by ferry because it is located on an island, the system will calculate a route using
the “with ferry” option contrary to your selection.
After you have entered your destination and
guidance has been started by pressing the
ENT key, you can begin your journey. The
system begins to calculate a route using the
road map that is stored on the CD. The display
shows a message informing you that the route
is being calculated. Afterwards, an arrow appears indicating the direction in which the destination lies. The Calculating route message
is displayed and the voice output indicates
that: “The route is being calculated”. In addition, the distance to the destination “as the
crow flies” is also displayed.
15
If you are travelling in your vehicle down a digitised street, you will be guided to your destination (after the route calculation has been
completed) by spoken recommendations and
by the navigation symbols in the display.
The voice output volume can be increased/
decreased during navigation by pressing the
/ keys. If you press the key, the latest
voice announcement will be repeated. By
pressing the ENT key during your journey, the
destination information will be displayed for
approx. 4 seconds. While the destination information is being shown, you can switch to the
Nav menu by pressing the ENT key again in
order to, say, access the Info menu.
If you are driving your vehicle down a nondigitised road (e.g. car park, garage, multistorey car park) the Off road message will be
displayed. If you are driving your vehicle outside the digitised network (e.g. abroad), Off
map will be displayed.
In such cases, you can orientate yourself by
referring to the arrow shown in the display
which indicates the direction in which your
destination lies.
After entering the digitised network again from
a non-digitised road, the system requires a few
hundred metres of travel distance before it can
start issuing route recommendations again.
16
Should you leave the recommended route,
the system will automatically calculate a
new route to your destination from your
current position.
Upon reaching your destination, the display will
show a chequered flag and a voice announcement will be made: “You have reached your
destination”. After the flag disappears, the monitor will then only display the name of the street
you are presently driving down or, if your vehicle is stationary, the Nav menu will be shown.
Note:
If the destination you entered is not included in
the digitised network of streets (e.g. special
destinations such as workshops, etc.), an arrow will appear in the display, as soon as you
leave the digitised area, indicating the direction
in which your destination lies. The voice output
announcement for this is: “You have reached
the area of your destination”. If you are in the
immediate vicinity of your destination, the voice
output announcement will inform you that: “You
have reached your destination”. If the destination you selected (e.g. a stored location) is not
situated within the digitised area, you will hear
the announcement: “No route guidance is
available to your destination”. The display will
then show No route and the arrow will point in
the direction in which the destination lies.
17
Traffic congestion
Using the “Traffic congestion” function, the
calculated route can be altered according to
the current traffic situation. This means that if
you see a problem with the traffic up ahead or
you are informed about this over the radio
(e.g. a traffic jam or road works), you can exclude certain route sections starting from your
current vehicle position. The route sections
that can be excluded refer to the road network
that lies ahead of you and your vehicle. Each
section comprises the section of road located
between two road junctions. The first section
that can be excluded comprises the length of
road starting from your vehicle and ending at
the next junction but one. The navigation system then calculates a new route starting from
the next possible turning which, if possible, will
bypass the traffic disruption. To call up the
traffic congestion function, press the key.
For example:
You have entered a small town and are driving
your vehicle between road turning A and turning B. The travel information you hear on the
radio informs you that there is a disruption to
traffic between turning C and D.
Now press the key and the traffic congestion menu will appear. A slider control will appear with a certain distance displayed above
18
it. This is the distance from the current vehicle
position up to junction C. By pressing the
key, you can add the subsequent route section
to this selection as well.
In our example, this would be the section between C and D. By pressing the key, the
sections you selected can be removed from
the exclusion list again. Once you have selected the desired length of the route section to be
excluded, press the ENT key. A new route will
then be calculated taking the traffic disruption
into account.
By pressing the Abort menu item, you can
leave the traffic congestion menu without any
changes having been made. The navigation
menu will then be displayed again.
If an alternative route was calculated and you
press the key again, the traffic congestion
menu will appear again and will offer you the
additional option of deleting the alternative
route. If you want to do this, position the cursor in front of Delete and press the ENT key.
A new route will then be calculated and the
navigation menu will appear.
Note:
The traffic congestion function is cancelled
either when the destination has been reached,
when a new destination is entered or when a
new traffic jam is entered.

Example for entering a destination
Selected destination:
Hildesheim, junction Kaiserstraße/Bahnhofsallee
Using the cursor, select the following menu items in the following order and
confirm by pressing ENT.
• Nav menu
• Enter destination
• City
The header line will display “Enter city”.
Select the letter “H” by
• pressing / or / until “H” is displayed inversely.
• press SET.
“H” will now appear in the input field.
Now select the letters “I”, “L”, “D”, “E” and “S” one after another. The input
field should now contain “HILDES”.
This entry will be sufficient to come close to the city name HILDESHEIM in
the index.
• Conclude the input procedure by pressing ENT.
The place name index will then be displayed and the cursor will be
positioned next to HILDESHEIM.
• Press ENT.
After a short time, the monitor will display the selected destination,
HILDESHEIM.
36
Note:
If you do not see the place name you require in the overview, you can page
through the index by pressing / .
Since, in this example, we want to enter the junction Kaiserstraße/Bahnhofsallee,
• position the cursor on “Street/Junction” and
• press ENT.
Select the letter “K” by
• pressing / or / until “K” is displayed inversely.
• press SET.
“K” will now appear in the input field.
Now select the letters “A”, “I” and “S” one after another. The input field
should now contain “KAIS”.
This entry will be sufficient to come close to the street name KAISERSTRASSE in the index.
• Conclude the input procedure by pressing ENT.
The cursor will be positioned next to KAISER-FRIEDRICH-S, i.e. the first
street name beginning with “KAIS”.
37
Note:
The monitor will display “KAISER-FRIEDRICH-S” because the street name
is too long for the monitor’s screen. You can read the rest of the name by
pressing . In this case the name is actually KAISER-FRIEDRICHSTRASSE.
• Position the cursor on KAISERSTRASSE and
• press ENT.
After a short time, the monitor will display the selected destination,
“HILDESHEIM KAISERSTRASSE”.
This amount of information is already sufficient to start navigation, however,
in this example, the destination we want is the junction Kaiserstraße/
Bahnhofsallee.
• Now position the cursor on “Junction” and
• press ENT.
The monitor will display all streets that intersect or join on to Kaiserstraße.
• Now position the cursor on BAHNHOFSALLEE and
• press ENT.
The destination entry is now complete, the monitor displays the destination
“HILDESHEIM KAISERSTRASSE BAHNHOFSALLEE” and the cursor is
positioned in front of Start guidance.
38
Day/night mode
The monitor display can be switched to:
Day mode
Red mode
Black mode
It is recommended that the display be set to “red mode” or the monitor be
switched off if the bright coloured display becomes irritating, especially, for
example, while driving at night.
Switching:
• Press SET as many times as is necessary until the required mode
appears.
If the screen is set to “black mode”, you can switch back to “day mode” by
pressing any key.
39
Demo mode
Guide for operating the system when installed in a shop display panel:
If the RGS 06 is to be operated in demo mode while installed in a
presentation panel (e.g. in a shop display), a minimum calibration
must be carried out. Firstly, switch off the TravelPilot. Next press the
cursor down key and switch on the TravelPilot. After the service
menu appears, close it by accessing the Navigation menu item.
To run the demo mode, proceed as follows:
1. Select Demo from the DSC menu. The demo menu will then appear.
If Normal is selected, the route will be travelled along only once and
will then stop. A new destination must then be entered and route
guidance must be restarted.
If Auto repeat is selected, the demo will run in a continuous loop, i.e.
it will continue to repeat the route from the starting point to the destination.
2. After selecting one of these menu items, the system will restart.
3. After the system has restarted, select Enter location from the DSC
menu and, as described in the chapter entitled “Example for entering
a destination”, select a town, a street and the appropriate junction.
After entering the address, the distance to the junction must then be
entered.
It is recommended that the position be set to 50 metres ahead by
positioning the cursor in front of 50 m ahead and pressing ENT.
4. Next, select Set location and press the ENT key.
40
5. Now enter a destination in the usual manner and start route guidance. After the route has been calculated, the demo will run automatically. While in demo mode, all functions can be operated as if the
unit were operating under real conditions.
6. The system can be made to return to normal navigation mode by selecting the Navigation menu item in the DSC menu. The navigation
computer will then restart and will return to the Nav menu.

Appendix
CD-ROM
The data required for route guidance are stored digitally on the CD-ROM.
For details on the exact contents of the CD, please refer to the information
accompanying it.
CD slot
Changing the CD
The CD-ROM can only be changed whilst the vehicle is stationary. The
system must be switched on. To eject a CD-ROM, slide the locking lever to
the left. The CD-ROM will then be ejected. While the CD is being ejected,
the locking lever must not be slid back to the right. Carefully insert the new
navigation CD-ROM – with its label facing uppermost – as far into the CD
slot as necessary until the CD-ROM player begins to draw the CD in by
itself. After the CD has been drawn in completely, slide the locking lever
back to the right again.
Note:
After changing the CD, the system will, if necessary, automatically reload
the language. Loading the language usually takes approx. 30 seconds.

Wrong CD-ROM
If the wrong CD-ROM is inserted into the navigation computer, the following
error message will appear: “CD read error. Please eject CD !”. If this is the
case, remove the incorrect CD-ROM and replace it with the correct one.
For technical reasons this error message will also appear if the maximum
permitted temperature is exceeded while the unit is operating. Let the unit
continue running until the internal ventilation fan has cooled the computer
down to its normal operating temperature. When this has been achieved,
the computer will automatically start up again and the main navigation
menu will appear.
Tyre change and calibration
When changing the vehicle’s tyres from summer to winter tyres and back
again, errors in distance measurements may arise (in particular if using
wheel sensors). If, after a tyre change, the resulting distance errors
negatively influence the system’s navigation behaviour, the system will
need to be re-calibrated. Please consult a TravelPilot dealer with regard to
this. Normal tyre wear is automatically taken into account by the system.
Caution: If calibration is incorrect, this can lead to a malfunctioning
of the system. If in doubt, please consult a TravelPilot
dealer.

Error messages
If one of the listed error messages appears in the top line of the display while
the unit is in operation, please consult your service workshop.
Possible error messages:
•
•
•
•
•
Check calibration
Check travel sensor
Check GPS antenna
Defective GPS receiver
Check GYRO
CD read error
This error appears if the data could not be read correctly from the CD-ROM
(e.g. due to strong vibrations or a damaged CD-ROM). The error message
will have no effect on the functioning of the navigation computer. If the error
message does not disappear of its own accord, press any key on the control
panel.
Cleaning the display
To clean the display, only use a damp cloth without any cleaning agents.
