versions of traditional paper maps. Similarly to paper road maps, the 2D mode of digital maps
shows you streets and roads. Elevation is also illustrated in colour.
The navigation view displays the following screen buttons, data fields, and route information
on the map during navigation:

When entering a tunnel, the map is replaced with a generic tunnel image. See page 24.
18
1.4.1 Streets and roads
iGO Navigation app shows the streets similarly to paper road maps. Their width and colours
correspond to their importance; you can easily tell a motorway from a small street.
1.4.2 GPS position markers
When your GPS position is available, iGO Navigation app marks your current position. By
default, this marker is a blue arrow arrow. The dot near the arrow shows the GPS position as
perceived by the GPS receiver.
The exact location of the current position marker depends on the vehicle type used for route
calculation. It can be set inRoute preferences (page 1).
•
If you choose pedestrian navigation, the current position marker is at your exact GPS
position. The direction of the icon shows your current heading.
•
In all other cases, the position marker may not show your exact GPS position and
heading. If roads are near, the GPS position is locked on the road and aligned to the
nearest road to suppress GPS position errors, and the direction of the icon is aligned to
the direction of the road.
1.4.3 Turn preview and next street
When navigating a route, the top section of the Navigation view shows information about the
next route event (manoeuvre) and the next street or the next town.
There is a field in the top left corner displaying the next manoeuvre. Both the type of the
manoeuvre (turn, roundabout, exiting motorway, and so on) and its distance from the current
position are displayed.
A smaller icon shows the type of the second next manoeuvre if it is near the first one.
Otherwise, only the next manoeuvre is displayed. Tap the icon of the actual manoeuvre to
open the Itinerary screen.
1.4.4 The planned route
The planned route is the currently navigated route. Whenever the destination is set, the route
is active until you delete it, reach your destination or suspend navigation. iGO Navigation app
displays the route in the following ways:

•
In pedestrian mode it is the GPS position.
•
If a vehicle is selected for route calculation and
roads are near, the arrow jumps to the nearest road.
•
Normally, if GPS position is available, the route
starts from the current position. If there is no valid
GPS position, iGO Navigation app uses the last
known position as the starting point.
It is an intermediate destination of the route before
reaching the final destination.
Destination (end
point)
It is the final destination of the route.
Route colour
The route always stands out with its colour on the map,
both in daytime and night colour modes.
Streets and roads
that are excluded
from the navigation
You can choose whether you want to use or avoid certain
road types (page 87). However, when iGO Navigation app
cannot avoid such roads, the route includes them and
shows them in a colour that is different from the route
colour.
Streets and roads
that are affected by
traffic events
Road segments may be affected by traffic events. These
streets and roads are displayed in a different colour, and
small symbols displayed along the route show the type of
the traffic event.
1.4.5 Manoeuvre icons
During navigation the next manoeuvre is displayed in the top left corner. Most of the
manoeuvre icons are intuitive. The following table lists some of the frequently shown route

1.4.6 Lane information
When navigating on multi-lane roads, it is important to take the appropriate lane in order to
follow the planned route. If lane information is available in the map data, iGO Navigation app
displays the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map.
Highlighted arrows represent the lanes and the direction you need to take.
1.4.7 Signposts
If necessary information is available, iGO Navigation app displays signposts at the top of the
map. The colour and style of the signposts are similar to the real ones you can see above
roads or by roadsides. They show the available destinations and the road numbers.
All signposts look similar when cruising (when there is no planned route). During navigation
only the signpost that points to the lane(s) to be taken is highlighted; all the others are darker.
If you want to hide the currently displayed signposts, tap any of them and the normal
Navigation view returns until new signpost information is received.
(page 94).
You can modify the signpost settings in
22
1.4.8 Junction view
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and the needed information
exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the junction. The lanes you need to take are
displayed with arrows. At the top of the screen, road signs show you additional information.
If you want to hide the currently displayed junction and return to the Navigation view, tap the
picture.
There are two kinds of Junction Views:
Provider Junction Views show a realistic view of the junction with realistic pictures of the road
signs.
Where Provider Junction Views are not available but the necessary information exists,
Generic Junction Views show a generic view of the junction, focusing on the number and
layout of lanes only. The road signs are created from road shield, road number, and
destination information received in the map data.
. See page 94.
Junction view can be turned off in
23
1.4.9 Tunnel view
When entering a tunnel, the map is replaced with a generic tunnel image so that surface
roads and buildings cannot distract you.
The top-down overview of the tunnel displayed in a separate window helps you orientate
yourself. The remaining distance in the tunnel is also displayed.
After leaving the tunnel, the original map view returns.
. See page 94.
Tunnel view can be turned off in
1.4.10 Motorway services
When you are driving on a motorway, the
button appears at the top right corner of the
Navigation view. Tap it to open a panel with the details of the next few service stations (petrol
stations, restaurants).
Tap any of them to display the exit area on the map. You can now easily add this service
station as a waypoint to your route if necessary.
If you want to display other types of Places at the next few service stations, you can change
the icons in

1.6 Truck & Caravan navigation (optional)
If you plan to use the app while driving a lorry or caravan, we recommend you to visit the
Shop and get the in-app package called ’Truck & Caravan’. This will enable a number of
features that will help you navigate with larger vehicles. Please note that you need to have a
map for the same region to use truck & caravan features, and they may not be available for all
regions.
The navigation software gives the following extra options for lorry and caravan drivers:
•
You can enter the parameters of your vehicle and the iGO Navigation app calculates
your routes with taking available weight, height, etc. restrictions into account (this
feature is accurate only if restrictions are available for all roads between your position
and the destination)
•
Based on the dimensions and other entered parameters of your vehicle, the app warns
you when you are approaching a restricted road segment or such roads must be used
in your route.
•
When selecting lorry or caravan as the vehicle type, U-turns are disabled from routes
as much as possible.
Warnings are both visual and audible. There are different kinds of warnings:
•
When approaching a restricted road segment without a route, you are warned that
there is a restricted area ahead.
•
Restricted road segments are excluded from your routes but in some cases some
restricted roads need to be used to reach the given destination. In this case you
receive a warning and you must accept that you have restricted roads in your route or
you can stop the navigation and continue without an active route.
Please note that lorry or caravan navigation is only as accurate and comprehensive
as the restrictions received with the map. Restrictions may not cover lower priority
Note! roads and in most cases the coverage changes as you move around your map
region. You are obliged to always obey the restrictions displayed on the road.
28
2 Warnings and safety information
The navigation system helps you find your way to your destination with the built-in GPS
receiver. iGO Navigation app does not transmit your GPS position; others cannot track you.
iGO Navigation app collects usage information and GPS logs that may be used for improving
the application and the quality of maps if you accept it when first using the application. The
data are processed anonymously; no one is able to track any personal information. If you
change your mind later, you can enable or disable the log collection in Settings (page 98).
It is important to look at the display only when it is safe to do so. If you are the driver of the
vehicle, we recommend that you plan and review your route before you start your journey.
Plan the route before your departure and stop if you need to change the route.
You must follow the traffic rules. If you deviate from the planned route, iGO Navigation app
changes the instructions accordingly.
29
3 Using the navigation
You can select the destination and start navigating to it right away (normal navigation) if you
need a route for immediate navigation.
You can also plan a route independently of your current GPS position even without GPS
reception. To achieve this, you need to set a new starting point in the Multipoint Route menu.
It also suspends guidance so that the route is not recalculated when a new position is
received. See Page 64.
You can plan routes with multiple destinations by selecting a first and a second destination
and adding it to your route. You can add as many destinations to your route as you like. See
Page 59.
3.1 Selecting a destination
You can choose your destination by selecting one of the following options:
•
Using combined search to search among different destination types at once, see page
30
•
Entering a full address or a part of an address, for example a street name without a
house number, see page 34
•
Selecting a Place as your destination, see page 41
•
Selecting a previously saved location as your destination, see page 52
•
Selecting a location from the History of previously used destinations, see page 53
•
Selecting a previously saved route, see page 55
•
Entering the coordinate of the destination, see page 56
•
Selecting a location on the map, see page 58
•
Planning a multipoint route, see page 59.
•
Selecting a destination using a picture, see page 1.
3.1.1 Using combined search
There are several ways to select your destination. You can initiate a separate search for
addresses, Places, saved locations, or recent destinations, but the fastest way to search for
any of these is to use combined search.
Perform the following steps to use combined search:
1.
Tap
2.
Tap
on the Navigation view to access the Navigation menu.
.
30
3.
. You can see the input field at the top of the screen. Right
Tap
next to it you can see the search area, the town around which the search is carried out.
The default search area is the area where you are located. For a local search, skip the
next step.
4.
(optional) To search in a different area, tap the input field with the search area, and
start entering the name of the new search area on the keyboard.
You only need to enter a few letters to get a result. The most likely result appears
below the input field as you enter new letters.
a.
If the new search area is in a different country, start entering the country and the
town. It is usually enough to type the first few letters of the country or town and
conventional abbreviations can also be used.
b.

the provider logos. Tap one of them to see Places from that provider.
•
Tap the Online Providers button to start the new search using the Online Search
facility. Wait for the results and select an item from the list.
To search for an intersection in the combined search, enter the names of the
streets connected by the '&' sign. You do not need to use spaces before and
after the separator character. For example you can find the intersection of
Collins Street and Douglas Avenue by entering strings, like "Collins St &
Tip! Douglas Ave", "Collins & Douglas", "Col&Doug", etc. The more precise the
input string is, the fewer false results are expected. If you enter "Collins St&",
you get all the intersections of Collins Street and you can select the
appropriate one from the result list.

4 Reference guide
The following sections describe the different concepts and menu screens of iGO Navigation
app.
4.1 Concepts
The following sections describe and explain navigation-related concepts.
4.1.1 2D/3D GPS reception
The GPS receiver uses satellite signals to calculate its (your) position and needs at least four
signals to give a three-dimensional position, including elevation. Because the satellites are
moving and because objects can block the signals, your GPS device might not receive four
signals. If three satellites are available, the receiver can calculate the horizontal GPS position
but the accuracy is lower and the GPS device does not give you elevation data; only 2D
reception is possible.
Several factors have an impact on the deviation between your real position and the one given
by the GPS device. For example, signal delay in the ionosphere or reflecting objects near the
GPS device have a different and varying impact on how accurately the GPS device can
calculate your position.
4.1.2 Road safety cameras and other proximity Alert Points
There is a special proximity warning for road safety cameras (like speed or red light cameras)
and other proximity Alert Points (like schools or railroad crossings). These Alert Points are not
part of iGO Navigation app.
You can add your own Alert Points. See page 73.
The application can warn you when you approach road safety cameras like speed cameras or
dangerous areas like school zones or railroad crossings. You can set up the different alert
types individually in the Warnings settings, see page 93.
The following warning types are available:
•
Audio warning: beeps are played while you are approaching one of these points, or
extra alert sounds if you exceed the given speed limit while approaching.
•
Visual warning: the type of the Alert Point, its distance and the related speed limit
appear on the Navigation view while you are approaching one of these locations.
For some of the Alert Points, either the enforced or expected speed limit is available. For
these points, the audio alert can be different if you are below or above the given speed limit.
•
Only when speeding: The audio alert is only played when you exceed the given speed
limit.
•
When approaching: The audio alert is always played when approaching one of these
Alert Points. In order to draw your attention, the alert is different when you exceed the
speed limit.
77
The warning for road safety cameras is usually disabled when you are in a country
where road safety camera warnings are prohibited. Make sure that using this
Note! feature is legal in the country where you intend to operate. Use it on your own
responsibility.
4.1.3 Route calculation and recalculation
A route is a sequence of route events, that is, manoeuvres (for example, turns and
roundabouts) to reach the destination. The route contains one starting point and one or more
destinations. The starting point is the current (or last known) position by default. If you need to
see a future route, the starting point can be replaced with any other given point. See page 64.
Once the destination has been selected, iGO Navigation app calculates the route based on
your preferences. These preferences are the route planning method, the vehicle type, and the
road types used or avoided when calculating the route. For detailed information on all the
preferences, see Route preferences settings, page 87.
Real-time traffic events are also taken into account, which sometimes greatly modify the
route. See page 79.
iGO Navigation app automatically recalculates the route if you deviate from the proposed
itinerary.
If traffic services are enabled, iGO Navigation app considers real-time dynamic traffic
information in route calculation and may also recalculate the route if the traffic situation
changes during navigation.
4.1.4 Smart Zoom
Smart Zoom provides the following features:
•
While following a route: When approaching a turn, it zooms in and raises the view
angle to let you easily recognise your next manoeuvre. If the next turn is at a distance,
it zooms out and lowers the view angle to be flat so you can see the road in front of
you.
•
While driving without a planned route: Smart Zoom zooms in if you drive slowly and
zooms out when you drive at a high speed.
4.1.5 Speed limit warning
Maps may contain information about the speed limits of the road segments. iGO Navigation
app is able to warn you if you exceed the current limit. This information may not be available
for your region, or may not be fully correct for all roads on the map.
The maximum speed set in the vehicle profile (page 87) is also used for this warning. iGO
Navigation app alerts you if you exceed the pre-set value even if the legal speed limit is
higher.
Speed warning can be fine-tuned in Warnings. See page 93.
You can also set the relative speed tolerance above which the application initiates the
warning.
The following warning types are available:
78
•
Audio warning: You receive a verbal warning when you exceed the speed limit with the
given percentage.
•
Visual warning: The current speed limit is shown on the map when you exceed it (for
example
).
You can also choose to see the speed limit sign on the map all the time.
4.1.6 Real-time traffic
Real-time traffic information can provide you with the current status of the traffic. Route
calculation can avoid road blocks or unexpected traffic jams caused by an accident.
The following data sources are available:
•
Online traffic:
Online traffic can provide you with the real-time status of the traffic if an active Internet
connection is available.
The application automatically takes account of the traffic events received. You do not need to
set anything in iGO Navigation app.
When iGO Navigation app receives traffic information that may affect your route, it warns you
that it is recalculating the route. The navigation continues with a new optimal route
considering the most up-to-date traffic conditions.
For information on traffic icons, see page 25.
To fine-tune this service, you have the following options in Traffic settings (page 98):
•
Set the minimum amount of time that you think is worth saving at the cost of a detour.
•
Instruct iGO Navigation app to have you confirm the new planned route before it takes

Private roads, resident-only roads and walkways are excluded from
routes.
U-turns are excluded from routes (turning back on a divided road is not
considered as a U-turn).
If the map contains data on dimension and weight restrictions, they
can also be taken into account when planning a route.
To enable lorry and caravan specific features, please visit the Shop and get the inNote! app package called ’Truck & Caravan’. You need to have a map for the same region
to use truck & caravan features, and they may not be available for all regions.
Creating a profile makes it possible to set up vehicle parameters used in route planning. You
can have several profiles for the same vehicle.
To add a new vehicle profile, perform the following steps:

4.3.1.2 Route Planning Method types
You can select from the following route planning method types:
Button
Description
Gives a quick route if you can travel at or near the speed limit on all
roads. Usually, the best selection for fast and normal cars.
Results in a route with fewer turns and no difficult manoeuvres. With
this option, you can make iGO Navigation app take, for example, the
motorway instead of a series of smaller roads or streets.
90
Gives a short route to minimise the travel distance. Usually optimal for
pedestrians, cyclists or slow vehicles. Searching for a short route
regardless of the speed, this route type is rarely optimal for normal
vehicles.
Gives a quick but fuel-efficient route based on the fuel consumption
data. Travel cost and CO2 emission calculations are estimations only.
They cannot take elevations, curves and traffic conditions into
consideration.
For vehicle types where Green routing is not available, this method
combines the benefits of Fast and Short. iGO Navigation app
calculates as if it were calculating the Fast route, but it takes other
roads as well to save fuel.
Note! Depending on the vehicle type, some methods may not be available.
4.3.1.3 Road types
To let the route fit your needs, you can also set which road types are to be considered for or
to be excluded from the route.
Excluding a road type is a preference. It does not necessarily mean total prohibition. If your
destination can only be accessed using some of the excluded road types, they are used only
as much as necessary. In this case, a warning icon is shown on the Route information screen,
and the part of the route not matching your preference is displayed in a different colour on the
map.
The following road types are available:
Button
Description
You might need to avoid motorways when you are driving a slow car or
you are towing another vehicle.
Charge roads are pay roads where you can purchase a pass or
vignette to use the road for a longer period of time. They can be
enabled or disabled separately from toll roads.
Per-use toll roads are pay roads where there is a per-use charge in the
routes by default. If you disable toll roads, iGO Navigation app plans
the best toll-free route.
iGO Navigation app includes ferries in a planned route by default.
However, a map does not necessarily contain information about the
accessibility of temporary ferries. You might also need to pay a fare on
ferries.
Car shuttle trains are used to transport vehicles for a relatively short
distance and they usually connect places that are not easily accessible
on a road, for example, in Switzerland.
91
Carpool or HOV lanes can be used if a given number of passengers is
travelling in the vehicle. Check whether you are allowed to use carpool
lanes before enabling this road type.
iGO Navigation app excludes unpaved roads by default. Unpaved
roads can be in a bad condition and you usually cannot reach the
speed limit on them.
4.3.2 Sound settings
You can modify the following settings:
Button
Function
Adjust the volume of the guidance sounds (verbal instructions) or mute
it.
Adjust the volume of the non-verbal alert sounds (beeps) or mute it.
Turn off the attention tone preceding verbal instructions or adjust its
volume.
Adjust the volume or mute the sound played when pressing the button.
You have the following options for each sound type:
Button
Volume slider
Function
Adjust the volume of the related sound.
Mute the related sound. The slider becomes inactive. Tap again to reenable it.
Button
Function
Disable verbal instructions. This function is enabled by default.
Set whether you want an immediate announcement for the next
manoeuvre after each turn, or it is enough to receive the information
when the turn is near.
92
Set the verbosity of the voice instructions, that is how much they tell
and how often they speak.
•
Minimal: the voice instruction is given once right before the next
manoeuvre.
•
Medium: the voice instruction is given when approaching the
next manoeuvre and it is repeated right before the manoeuvre.
•
Verbose: the voice instruction is given first relatively far from the
next manoeuvre, it is repeated when approaching the next turn,
and it is repeated again right before the actual manoeuvre.
4.3.3 Warnings settings
You can enable and modify the following settings:
Button
Description
iGO Navigation app is able to warn you if you exceed the current
speed limit. This information may not be available in your region, or
may not be fully correct for all roads on the map.
The maximum speed set in the vehicle profile is also used for this
warning. iGO Navigation app alerts you if you exceed the pre-set value
even if the legal speed limit is higher.
This setting lets you decide whether you wish to receive visible and/or
audible warnings.
The following warning types are available:
•
Visual warning: the current speed limit is shown on the map
when you exceed it.
•
Audio and Visual warning: besides the current speed limit being
shown on the map, you also receive a verbal warning when you
exceed the speed limit with the set percentage.
If you prefer to see the speed limit sign on the map all the time
(normally, it is shown only if you exceed the limit), you can set it here.
You can also set the relative speed above which the application
initiates the warning by adjusting a slider. The value can be different
within and outside towns.
93
Tap it to receive a warning when approaching a road safety camera or
other Alert Points like school zones or railroad crossings. You must
make sure that using this feature is legal in the country where you
intend to use it.
You can set the warning type for the different Alert Point categories
(alert types) individually. The following warning types are available:
•
Visual warning: the type of the Alert Point, its distance, and the
related speed limit appear on the Navigation view while you are
approaching one of these locations.
•
Audio and Visual warning: besides the visual alert, beeps are
played while you are approaching one of these points, or extra
alert sounds if you exceed the given speed limit while
approaching.
For some of the Alert Points, the enforced or expected speed limit is
available. For these points, the audio alert can be different if you are
below or above the given speed limit.
•
Only when speeding: The audio warning is only played when
you exceed the given speed limit.
•
When approaching: The audio warning is always played when
approaching one of these Alert Points. In order to draw your
attention, the audio alert is different when you exceed the speed
limit.
Maps may contain driver alert information that can be shown on the
Navigation view in a similar way as real-life road signs. Tap it to enable
or disable the warning for these road segments (for example, dangers
and sharp curves). For each category of warning signs, set the
warning type (visual or audio and visual) and the distance from the
hazard to receive the warning at.
4.3.4 Navigation View settings
These settings allow you to fine-tune the appearance of the Navigation view. You can also
adjust how the software helps you navigate with different kinds of route-related information on
the Navigation view.

building data containing actual building size and position on the map).
Show or hide the 3D elevation of the terrain.
Turn on Track Logs to show them on the map or turn them off.
Select which Places to show on the map while navigating. Too many
Places make the map crowded so it is a good idea to keep as few of
them on the map as possible. Tap the name of the Place category to
show/hide it or to open the list of its subcategories.
95
You can modify the following additional settings on the Navigation View screen:
If you are navigating with a planned route, you can set three data fields
to be displayed on the Navigation view. You can choose from the time
of arrival at destination, distance to destination, time to destination,
time of arrival at waypoint, distance to waypoint, time to waypoint,
heading, or altitude. Without a planned route, there is only one data
field that can be set to show the heading or the altitude.
Turn the Route Progress Bar on or off. If turned on, an orange line line
is displayed on the side of the screen, and a blue arrow arrow on it
shows your progress.
Turn it on to get motorway service information (for example petrol
stations, restaurants) or turn it off if you do not need it.
Select the service types displayed for the motorway exits. Choose
from the Places categories.
Zoom out and show an overview of the surrounding area if the next
manoeuvre is far and you are driving on a motorway. When you get
close to the event, the normal map view returns.
Whenever adequate information is available, lane information similar
to the real ones on road signs above the road is displayed at the top of
the map. Tap it to turn this feature on or off.
If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and
the needed information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of
the junction. Tap it to turn this feature on or let the map be displayed
for the whole route.
When entering tunnels, the surface roads and buildings can be
disturbing. Tap it to show a generic picture of a tunnel instead of the
map. A top-down overview of the tunnel and the remaining distance
are also displayed.
In certain situations, iGO Navigation app offers a detour when there is
a traffic jam on a highway. See page 80.
In certain situations, iGO Navigation app offers an alternative route
when there is a traffic jam on the road. See page 81.
In certain situations, iGO Navigation app offers parking Places when
you approach your destination. See page 82.
96
In certain situations, iGO Navigation app offers different route
alternatives when you leave the planned route and suddenly exit the
motorway. See page 82.

following settings:
Button
Description
Trip monitor can record statistical data of your trips. If you need these
logs later, you can let the application save them automatically for you.
Track logs, the sequence of the positions given by the GPS receiver,
can be saved together with trip logs. They can later be displayed on
the map. You can let the application save track logs whenever it saves
a trip.
This is not a button. This line shows the current size of the trip
database, the sum of all trip and track logs saved.
4.3.9 Usage Reports settings
If you enable it when first using the application, it collects usage information and GPS track
logs that may be used for improving the application and the quality and coverage of maps.
Data are processed anonymously; no one is able to track any personal information.
You can enable or disable collecting the following logs:
Button
Description
Anonymous statistical information on using the navigation software is
collected for later development purposes. Understanding how different
people use the application can help us improve the user interface and
the program workflow.
98
Anonymous track logs are sometimes used for providing real-time
information service. Your trips can also help us improve the quality and
coverage of maps.
4.3.10 Advanced Settings
These settings allow you to fine-tune the behavior of iGO Navigation on your mobile device.
Button
Description

5 Troubleshooting
This section offers possible solutions to issues that may occur during the operation of iGO
Navigation app.
5.1 GPS signal cannot be received
Issue: The current location is not available, because GPS signal cannot be received.
Cause 1: GPS signal is weak or may not be available if you are between tall buildings, in
garages or tunnels as the signal weakens or distorts as it travels through solid material.
Solution 1: Go to a place where there is a clear sight of the sky or at least a bigger part of the
sky is visible.
Cause 2: It may take several minutes to receive GPS signals when first using iGO Navigation
app, or when your last known position is farther away from your current position.
Solution 2: Wait a few minutes for the GPS signal.
5.2 Address cannot be found
Issue: iGO Navigation app cannot find the address you entered.
Cause: The digital map data may not include every single address.
Solution 1: If the house number is not known or iGO Navigation app cannot find it, select only
the street name. This way, iGO Navigation app will navigate you to the midpoint of the street,
where you can find the exact address more easily.
Solution 2: Search for another address that is close to the destination.
Solution 3: Search for the coordinates or a nearby Place of Interest.
5.3 The calculated route is not optimal
Issue: The planned route is too long or includes several minor roads.
Cause: In
the optimal parameter.

5.4 Disabling the speed limit warning
Issue: The speed limit warning is signalling even when the actual speed limit is kept.
Cause: The speed limit in the digital map data might differ from the actual speed limit of your
current location.
Solution: Disable the speed warning by performing the following steps:
1.
Tap
2.
Tap

and
101
.
5.5 Keyboard buttons are greyed out
Issue: Some keyboard buttons are greyed out and cannot be used.
Cause: iGO Navigation app has a smart keyboard for address search, which means that only
those buttons are active that can be used to type a name that is available on the map.
Solution: Check if you entered the name correctly. If the name is correct, then the address
you are looking for is not available in the digital map data.
5.6 The map is hidden behind an image of a junction
Issue: The map is not visible because it is hidden behind an image of a junction.
Cause: If you are approaching a motorway exit or a complex intersection and the needed
information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D view of the junction. The lanes you need to
take are displayed with arrows.
Solution: If you want to hide the currently displayed junction and return to the Navigation
view, tap the picture. To turn off this feature, perform the following steps:
1.
Tap
2.
