1 Security
This chapter contains important information for the safe and reliable use of
the NAVI-1. Please read this chapter carefully before starting to use the
NAVI-1.
1.1 General information
The Global Positioning System uses satellite navigation, an entirely new
concept in navigation. GPS has become established in many areas, for
example, in civil aviation or deep-sea shipping.
The GPS system is operated by the government of the United States of
America, which also has sole responsibility for the accuracy and
maintenance of the system. The system is constantly being improved and
may entail modifications effecting the accuracy and performance of the GPS
equipment.
1.2 Restricted use
Certain restrictions on the use of the NAVI-1 may have to be observed on
board a plane, in hospitals, public places or government institutions,
laboratories etc. Follow these instructions.
1.3 Children
Do not allow children to play with the NAVI-1. It is not a toy and children
could hurt themselves or others. The NAVI-1 consists of many small parts
which can come loose and could be swallowed by small children.
Thoughtless handling can damage the NAVI-1.
1.4 Driving and safety
Do not place (mount) the device and the external antenna (if it is connected)
on the parts which will obstruct the sight of the driver.
Do not place (mount) the device and the external antenna (if it is connected)
on the parts which block any safety device (such as the Airbag, pedals,
accessory controls and any others) in your vehicle.
Your own personal judgment has always priority while you driving, if the
user of FALCOM NAVI-1 feels that the instructions of navigation software
place you in an unsafe area, then use your personal judgment according to
traffic regulations and do not follow those instructions.
The NAVI-1 is designed to be installed inside the vehicle. Do not place or
install the NAVI-1 on the vehicle roof (outdoor).
Please, do not handle the NAVI-1 while driving.
Safety to traffic has always priority! Please use the FALCOM NAVI-1 only
in such a way that you always keep control of your vehicle in all traffic
conditions, especially when the vehicle is moving.

2 Preparing to use your FALCOM NAVI-1
Read this manual in order to begin using your FALCOM NAVI-1 and to
understand its operations, functions, and common features.
You must first install a GPS Mapping software (if none is installed) on your
PC, laptop, PDA, or other handheld devices.
In order to have a Bluetooth™ connection with your Falcom NAVI-1,
secure that the control device is a Bluetooth™-enabled one.
For more information about software installation, please refer to chapters
described below.
2.1 How does the FALCOM NAVI-1 work?
The FALCOM NAVI-1 using SiRFXTrac software offers high position
accuracy and fast Time-To-First-Fix (TTFF) than is currently possible with
other autonomous GPS solution. This means that the NAVI-1 will continue
to determinate its positions or obtain an initial fix in places previously not
possible. In other word the NAVI-1 can be used in environments previously
deemed inaccessible environments such as:
severe urban canyons,
parking garages,
dense foliage,
multi-level freeways,
under bridges and overpasses, and, in many cases, indoors.
Coverage - Single Story Office Block
When the GPS receiver is initially turned on, it begins to determinate its
current positions, velocity and time which will be calculated from tracking
the GPS signals an extremely small level by 16 dBHz. While trying to
calculate a position fix, the receiver needs to be locked-on to at least four
satellites. In order to calculate quickly its current location, the receiver uses
the current received signals from in view satellites, simultaneously holds the
stored data from its memory (SRAM).
Figure 1:
Signal processing of NAVI-1

Page 10
NAVI-1/NAVI-XT
VERSION 1.06
When the required data are completely collected, then satellite signals are
tracked continuously and the position is calculated from time to time. When
the received data from satellites is considered valid then the FALCOM
NAVI-1 is available for navigation. The validity of these data stored in
SRAM is kept due to RTC keeps running from external battery and these
data may still be valid form the previous operation.
As above the initial state of the NAVI-1 GPS receiver refers to the last
status of the receiver in memory (SRAM). This primarily determines the
length of time it will take for your FALCOM NAVI-1 to obtain a GPS fix.
Your position can be extremely quick fixed within 4 seconds from a "hotstart" state, and within 45 seconds from a "cold-start" state. The FALCOM
NAVI-1 stores data about where the satellites are located at any given time.
The data is called almanac. Occasionally, when the FALCOM NAVI-1 has
been turned off for a long time, the almanac may get out-dated or “cold” so
the NAVI-1 performs a cold start. Otherwise, if the time and position are
knowledge, as well the almanac data are also valid then the FALCOM
NAVI-1 performs a Hot start.
The NAVI-1 uses the satellite signals to calculate its exact current location
by calculating its distance from the satellites. The position data within the
receiver is then converted into latitude and longitude coordinates which are
usually provided in the geodetic datum on which the GPS is based (WGS84)
and transmitted via integrated Bluetooth™ transceiver direct to the
Bluetooth™-enabled device (PC, laptop or Pocked PC).

VERSION 1.06
4.3.5 Charging & Discharging the included battery
Your NAVI-1 is powered by a rechargeable battery, an alarm will warn you
when the battery reaches the low level (< 3.6 V).
Once the battery is clipped in the NAVI-1, plug one of the cable charger
(not supplied with NAVI-1, however, available upon request, see chapter
0.2), into the corresponding power jack interface of NAVI-1. Plug the
transformer unit into a main AC power socket or vehicle power outlet (it
depend on the purchased cable charger, see chapter 0.2) with easy access.
As far as the temperature limits is recognised, please refer to the table 4 and
chapters 4.3.5.1 and 4.3.5.2.
The extreme temperatures have an unfavourable influence on the
rechargeable batteries. The capacity and life cycle of the batteries are
reduced if they are kept at cold or warm places, e.g. in a closed car at
summer or winter conditions. Try always to keep the included battery at
normal temperatures between 15°C and 25°C. The GPS receiver with a too
cold or too warm battery does not temporarily operate sometimes, even if
the battery is completely charged. Especially, the achievement of battery is
strongly reduced at temperatures under the freezing point.
During the charging time the indicator LED (labelled BAT) on the top side
of NAVI-1 lights green (if the equipment is switched off). Charging will be
terminated after the battery reached full capacity (4.2V/700 mAh) which
approximately takes 2-3 hours. During this time the NAVI-1 can also be
used, but note that, the battery’s capacity has to be higher then 3.8 V.
Keeping the cable charger plugged to the equipment when the battery is
fully charged does not damage the battery, but it is recommended to unplug
from the power source. To optimise battery capacity, you should allow the
battery to fully discharge every now and then. If you do not intend to use
your NAVI-1 for several days, we recommend you to disconnect it from the
battery. The NAVI-1 can also be used while it is on charge.
New feature for NAVI-XT, only
The NAVI-XT can also operate without the need of the internal battery.
However, it must be always connected via one of the cable charger
(available upon request, see chapter 0.2) to an external power source during
the operation. Keep in mind the validity of GPS data stored in SRAM is no
more available if the internal battery of the NAVI-XT is removed and it is
disconnected from the external power source. That means, the NAVI-XT
allways performs a cold start after each power on procedure.
4.3.5.1 Safety precautions while charging the battery
Be sure to follow the rules listed below while charging the battery. Failure
to do so may cause the battery to become hot, rupture, or ignite and cause
serious injury.
• When charging the battery, either use one of the aforementioned battery
charger or otherwise insure that the battery charging conditions specified
by Falcom are met.
• Do not attach the NAVI-1 to a power supply plug or directly to a car’s
cigarette lighter (an adapter cable has to be used).
This confidential document is the property of FALCOM GmbH and may not be copied or circulated without permission.
Page 17
NAVI-1/NAVI-XT
VERSION 1.06
• Do not place the NAVI-1 into direct sunlight. When the battery becomes
hot, the built-in safety equipment is activated, preventing the battery
from charging further, and heating the battery can destroy the safety
equipment and can cause additional heating, breaking, or ignition of the
battery.
• The temperature range over which the battery can be charged is 0°C to
45°C. Charging the battery at temperatures outside of this range may
cause the battery to become hot or to break. Charging the battery outside
of this temperature range may also harm the performance of the battery
or reduce the battery’s life expectancy.
4.3.5.2 Safety precautions while discharging the battery
Do not discharge the battery using any other device except for the Falcom
NAVI-1. The temperature range over which the battery can be discharged is
-20°C to 60°C. Use of the battery outside of this temperature range may
damage the performance of the battery or may reduce its life expectancy.
