Warnings and safety information
The Travel Companion is a navigation system that helps you find your way to your selected destination.
It determines your exact location with the help of the built-in GPS device. The position information
obtained from the GPS receiver is not transmitted elsewhere. Therefore, others cannot track you with
the help of this application.
If you are the driver of the vehicle, we recommend that you operate the Travel Companion before
beginning your journey. The driver’s attention should always be on the road. Plan your route before
departure, and pull over if you need to change route parameters.
It is also important that you look at the display only if it is absolutely safe to do so.
You should always observe traffic signs and road geometry before you obey any instruction from the
Travel Companion. If you need to deviate from the recommended direction, the Travel Companion
suggests a modified route according to the new situation.
Never place your Travel Companion where it can obstruct the view of the driver, is within the deployment
zone of airbags, or where it can cause injuries in case of an accident.

Selectors
In the following sections, you can find some of the controls frequently used in the Travel Companion.
Direct selectors
Some of the settings can be chosen from a list of possible values. If the values can be described
graphically, icons are displayed on the screen.
Tap one of the icons to set/change the value.
Sometimes direct selectors appear as radio buttons. Tap either the button or the label to change the
value.
Selectors
17
List selectors
When the available values in the list need to be named, only the current value is displayed (sometimes
with a short description) in a horizontal stripe with arrows at both ends.
The arrows are buttons. Tap to move left in the list or tap to move right. You need not confirm your
selection. The selected value becomes effective immediately.
Sliders
When a feature has several different unnamed (numeric) values, the Travel Companion shows sliders
to set the desired value. They look like analogue potentiometers.
If the value limits are not displayed at the ends of the slider, the leftmost or bottom position means the
minimum value, while the rightmost or top position represents the maximum value.
With some sliders, you can check the current value at one end.
This control can be operated in two ways. Either drag the handle to move the slider to its new position,
or tap the slider where you require the handle to appear (the thumb jumps there immediately). There is
no need to confirm your selection. The selected value becomes effective immediately.
Switches
When a function can only have two values (mainly Enabled and Disabled), a switch is used. The
horizontal line contains the name of the function and not the actual status. There is a check box on the
left to show whether the function is active or not.
When the check mark is cleared or missing, it indicates that the function is not selected. When the check
mark is selected or displayed, the function is selected or enabled. The entire strip performs as a button.
Tap the strip to toggle between the enabled and disabled status.
Virtual keyboards
Your Travel Companion is designed to ensure that you only need to enter letters or numbers when it is
inevitable. In these cases, a full screen keyboard pops up. It can be easily operated with your fingertips.
You can choose between a QWERTY keyboard that contains only letters, and a numeric keypad. There
is a button reserved to switch between the two keyboard types.
The alphabetic keyboard in the Travel Companion does not contain special characters, because you
do not need to enter accents when searching for a destination. Type only the base letters (the letter
most similar to the accented one) and the Travel Companion searches for all the combinations in the
database (for example, for the French street ‘Cité Bergère ’ you only need to type ‘Cite Bergere’, and
the application picks up the correct street name).
When you type in POI names or track log names, the Travel Companion automatically turns all initials
into capitals to create names.
The QWERTY keyboard
The QWERTY keyboard has the same layout as the Standard English QWERTY keyboard. The only
difference is that it contains no numbers and symbol keys. Only the alphabet and some special keys.
The special keys are as follows:

Find co-ordinates
In the Travel Companion, select your destination by entering map co-ordinates. The co-ordinates need
to be entered in Latitude/Longitude format, based on the WGS84 earth model (the model used by most
GPS devices).
On accessing this screen, the co-ordinates of the current GPS position (or the selected map point,
referred to as the Cursor, if the map has been moved) are displayed.
The co-ordinates are always displayed in the format previously configured here, but you can enter the
co-ordinates in any of the three Latitude/Longitude formats (decimal degrees; degrees and decimal
minutes; or degrees, minutes and decimal seconds). You can even enter the latitude and longitude in
different formats.
To easily enter a Latitude/Longitude pair:
1.
The left field contains the latitude.
2.
Check the first character: an ‘N’ (North) or ‘S’ (South) letter. This specifies whether the point is in
the Northern or the Southern hemisphere.

12 Map
There are two map screens: the Map (2D) screen and the Cockpit (3D) screen. The manner in which
they display the map is similar, but the look and controls are optimized for different purposes.
The Map (2D) screen is to be used for the following:
●
browse the map,
●
create user POI items,
●
plan your route based on map points.
The Map screen is designed to show the maximum map area. This screen can only be used in 2D
North-up mode. You can scale the map, but rotating and tilting is disabled.
The Cockpit (3D) screen is for driving purposes
●
If you are just cruising data such as speed, GPS reception quality, current date, and time
●
If you are navigating, some more route data like the next street in your route, the distance to travel,
type of the next route event.
There are several controls that function in a similar fashion on the two screens. They are described in
the following sections.

Map visualization
The current version of the Travel Companion is primarily intended for land navigation. That is why maps
in the Travel Companion look similar to paper roadmaps (when using daytime colors and 2D map mode).
However, the Travel Companion provides much more than regular paper maps can. The look and the
contents can be changed.
Daylight and night color schemes
The daylight and night color schemes let you adjust the Travel Companion to the brightness of the
environment. Use the daylight and night color schemes accordingly. Daylight colors are similar to paper
roadmaps, while the night color schemes use dark tints for large objects to keep the average brightness
of the screen low, with carefully selected colors to still keep you informed about all the necessary
information on the screen.
You can change between day and night views manually in Settings, or let the Travel Companion do it
automatically for you.
NOTE: The automatic day/night mode is based upon the current date and GPS position by which the
Travel Companion calculates the exact sunrise and sunset times on the particular day at the particular
location. Using that information the Travel Companion can automatically switch between the color
schemes a few minutes before sunrise, when the sky has already turned bright, and a few minutes after
sunset before it gets dark.
TIP: To further enhance the effect of the night color scheme, you can instruct the Travel Companion
to decrease the display backlight when the night colors are used. Set the desired backlight levels for
both daylight and night modes.
Current position and Lock-on-Road
When your GPS position is available, a blue arrow (yellow when using night colors) shows your location
on the map.
The direction of the arrow represents your heading. The arrow is sized and vertically rotated with the
zoom and tilt levels to always look realistic.
Your Travel Companion has a built-in Lock-on-Road feature that always puts the position arrow on the
road, on the axis of the street in case of one-way streets, or on the side of the road where you drive
(e.g. on the right in Germany and on the left in the U.K.) on two-way roads.
You always see this corrected position on the map. The position given by the GPS is not displayed, but
this is the information recorded in the track log. When recorded track logs are displayed on the map,
the line is not corrected. You see the positions reported by the GPS.
Map visualization
45
When the GPS position is lost, the arrow turns grey, but the journey continues on the recommended
route for a short period of time with the speed last detected before the GPS position was lost. When the
next route event is reached, or after 40 seconds, the arrow stops, and remains grey until GPS reception
returns. This way short tunnels can be crossed without losing the position.
Selected map point, also known as the Cursor
If you tap the map somewhere and tap again or select a specific item in Go to, it becomes the selected
point on the map, marked with a small red dot and permanently radiating red circles to make it
conspicuous at all zoom levels, even when it is in the background of a 3D map view. You can use this
point as starting point, Via point, or destination of your route, you can search for a POI near to it, or save
it as a POI, a Favorite or the location of a road safety camera. The cursor, when visible, is also the
reference point for map scaling.
NOTE: When your GPS position is available, and Lock-to-Position is active, the cursor is the current
GPS position, the blue arrow. When you select another point by tapping the map, or using the Go to
menu, the new Cursor is displayed on the display with the red dot and the radiating red circles.
Visible POIs (Points of Interest)
Your Travel Companion comes with thousands of built-in POIs, and you can create your own POI
database as well.
POIs are represented by icons on the map. For a built-in POI it is the icon of the subcategory of the
actual POI. For points you create, it is the icon you had chosen when you created the POI. POI icons
can be changed later in Visual settings.
These icons are large enough to recognize the symbol, and semi-transparent so as not to cover the
streets and junctions behind them.
When the map is zoomed out, the icons are not displayed. As you zoom in, icons appear based on their
visibility settings.
Road safety cameras
Road safety cameras, such as speed cameras and red light cameras are special POI types in the Travel
Companion.
Contacts
A different type of special POIs is Contacts. When the Travel Companion is started, it attempts to
recognize the addresses in your Travel Companion’s Contact database. All contacts with the address
recognized are displayed as POIs in a group named Contacts.
If they exist, the Home, Work, and Other addresses of a contact are imported. For example if you have
the home and office addresses of John Smith, you have two POIs, one called ‘John Smith (Home)’, and
another one as ‘John Smith (Work)’.
Elements of the active Route
Your Travel Companion uses a multi-destination routing system in which you have a start point (normally
your current GPS position), a destination, the line of the active leg of the route, and optionally Via points
and inactive legs. They are all displayed on the map.
46
Chapter 12 Map
Start point, Via points, and destination
You have the following features on any active route while you are at a start point, at Via points, or at the
destination.
Active leg of the route
The active leg is the section of the route you are currently driving. If you have not added any Via points,
the whole route is the active leg. When Via points are present, the active leg is the part leading from
your location to the next Via point. The active section is displayed in light green (red when using night
colors). It is always the most conspicuous part of the map even when in the background of a 3D map
view. The line of the route is displayed on the driving side of the road for two-way and on the axis in
case of one-way streets. When the map is zoomed in and the line is wide enough, small arrows show
the direction of the route. This can be useful if you preview the route before starting the journey or when
entering a complex junction.
Inactive legs of the route
Future sections of a route are inactive. They are also displayed on the map with the same color but a
darker tint than the active one. An inactive route section becomes active as soon as you reach its starting
Via point. Roads in the route can be excluded by setting required preferences. Although you can choose
whether to include or avoid some road types in Route settings, sometimes they are impossible to avoid
near the starting point, Via points, or the destination. If so, the Travel Companion displays those
segments of the route with an alternate color.
Turn preview
On the Map screens this field shows a graphic illustration of the next maneuver. For example when you
approach a turn, an arrow shows whether it is a slight, normal or sharp turn. When showing a roundabout,
the number of the exit is also given.
This field also serves as a button. Tap it to display the turn preview in large in the top left corner of the
map. Tap again to disable the large turn preview.
Cursor (the selected map point)
If you tap the map somewhere twice or select one specific item in Go to, it becomes the selected point
on the map, marked with a small red dot and radiating red circles to make it conspicuous. You can use
this point as starting point, Via point, or destination for your route, you can search for a POI near it, or
save it as a POI, a Favorite, or a road safety camera.
Track Log recording/playback indicator
When a track log is being recorded, a
icon is displayed on the map screens. This icon also
functions as a button leading to the Track Log screen where you can stop the recording or make the
track log visible on the map.

Button
Function
Set as Start
Use the Cursor as the departure point for your route. This
disables routing from the current GPS position and automatic
off-route recalculation. If a route existed before, the Via points
and the destination remains the same.
Remove Start
This button replaces “Set as Start“, if the Cursor is at or near
to the start point of the route. Tap it to remove the start point
of the route.
Add Via
By inserting the selected map point as a via, you instruct the
Travel Companion to cross this location before the destination
of the route. This is the way to build a multi-point route in
reverse order (when you wish to insert a stopover ‘go to A but
first get some fuel at B’ or you need to influence the direction
of the route). This menu point works only if a route is already
active.
Remove Via
This button replaces “Add Via“, if the Cursor is at or near to any
of the Via points of the route. Tap it to remove that particular
Via point from the route.
Continue
This button adds a new final destination after the previous
destination. The new destination replaces the old one, which
is now demoted to a Via point. This is the way to build your
multi-point route in straight order (when you wish to visit
several destinations ‘go to A then to B’). This menu point is
available only if a route is already active.
Set as Destination
Use the Cursor as the destination of your route. This button is
to start a new route. The previous route (if it exists) is deleted
and replaced. If a multi-point route is active, the Travel
Companion asks you whether you really need to delete it
together with all its Via points.
Remove Destination
This button replaces “Set as Destination“, if the Cursor is at or
near to the destination of the route. Tap it to remove the
destination of the route promoting the last Via point as the new
destination.
Save as Favorite
Save the cursor as one of your favorite destinations. Select one
position in the Favorite list, and it is filled/replaced with the
details of the cursor.
Add POI
Save the cursor as a user POI. Give a name, an icon, and
select a POI group for the new POI.
Add Speedcam
Save the Cursor as the position of a road safety camera. Select
the type, the direction of the camera, and the speed limit
checked.

This field shows the road or street that comes next in the route itinerary.
If you are not yet in the city or town where this next street is, the Travel Companion displays the name
of the settlement instead of the name of the road or street. A bullet symbol appears next to the name of
settlement to help you identify them apart from street names.
This field is only displayed when navigating a route.

To edit a route, you need to be aware of all waypoints used in the route. The first item in the list is the
departure point of the route without a valid GPS position. The list contains the last reached Via point or
the point where the Travel Companion recalculated the route. This means the list is permanently
updated, and Via points drop out during the journey. The last item in the list is your final destination.

When you open the screen, you will see all fields contain information on reaching your final destination.
Tap any of the fields to see data on the Via points starting from the first one through the final destination
again. You can see the following options on the screen:
●
Route line
The upper part of this screen shows your planned route as a horizontal line. Its leftmost point is
the start of the route, the rightmost one is the final destination, and you can see your Via point flags
along the line, spaced in proportion to their distance.
The blue (yellow when using night colors) arrow representing your position travels from the left to
the right, giving you visual feedback of your journey.
When you reach a Via point, it becomes the starting point of the route, the past is deleted. The line
with all the other Via points are modified instantly, and the arrow jumps back to the left.
When the Travel Companion needs to recalculate the route, the arrow does not jump back to the
left as when reaching a Via point. It might drift a bit as the length of the new route may be different
from the previous one.
When the data corresponding to the entire route is displayed in the fields below, the line is colored
the same way as the road type displayed on the map. When you see data that belongs to a Via
point, the route is colored only up to that Via point. The rest of the line remains grey.
●
Destination/Via point
This field shows the exact address (or its co-ordinates if the address is not available) of the final
destination.
If Via points exist, tap and tap again any of the fields to see the address or co-ordinates of the first,

Smart Powersave
When running on battery, Smart Powersave lights up the screen only when you press a button or tap
the screen. After a few seconds, the light level decreases, and after another few seconds, the backlight
turns off. This helps you conserve the battery and achieve a longer battery life.
Map settings
These settings determine how maps are displayed on the Travel Companion.
Alternative Road Names
Some highways have an international name or number for foreign travelers. You can decide whether to
show only the local name or both.
Show Street Labels
You can set whether or not to see the names of the streets and the POI icons on the map while driving.
Based on the current zoom and tilt levels, street names are displayed either aligned with the street or
on signposts on the streets (Streets and roads). If you switch these signs on, it is easier to recognize
your location on the map. If you turn them off, it is easier to see the road geometry.
NOTE: You can only disable street names and POI icons if the Travel Companion follows your position.
As soon as you move the map and Lock-to-Position is disabled, street names and icons become visible
again. Tap
to re-enable Lock-to-Position and have the labels and icons disappear again.
2D/3D map view
In 2D map view mode, the map is displayed in a conventional top-down view with a fixed North-up
orientation. You cannot tilt or rotate the map. The elevation of the map is displayed with colors and
shading similar to a topographic map.
In 3D map view mode, the map shows a perspective view. You can change the vertical angle of the
view, you can rotate the map, and turn 3D map elements on or off.
POI visibility
The maps in the Travel Companion come with a huge number of POIs. Displaying all of them would
make the screen too crowded. In order to avoid this, you can decide which POI groups to show and
which ones to hide on the map, and how close you need to zoom in to start seeing a particular POI
group. Your Travel Companion has a multi-level POI category system. You can set the visibility of all
levels. Subgroups can inherit the visibility settings of the group, but you can also assign different settings
to any subgroup.
To view POIs:
1.
When you tap the button, you will see the list of the top-level POI groups is displayed:
2.
Tap any of the group names to see the list of its subgroups.

When you edit the visibility of a POI group or subgroup, a new screen is displayed:
You have the following options:
Button
Function
This is the icon of the POI group. This icon is displayed on
the map when the group is visible. Tap it to choose another
icon for the edited POI group or subgroup.
Tap any of the radio buttons to choose a new visibility level
for the edited POI group or subgroup.
All in Current Category
Check this box, and the visibility level of all the subgroups
of the edited POI category is overwritten with the value set
here. This does not start any dependency between the
group and its subgroups. If you wish to have uniform
visibility for the whole group, tap the button again.
Night mode
Using the automatic night mode, your Travel Companion switches between the daylight and night color
schemes a few minutes before sunrise and a few minutes after sunset based on the time and location
information provided by your GPS. Set Night mode permanently on or off to display only the daylight
or the night color scheme.
Zoom settings
The Auto zoom (or Smart zoom) feature offers a lot more than just the usual automatic zoom.
●
While navigating a route: When approaching a turn, it zooms in and raises the view angle to let
you easily recognize your maneuvre at the next junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it zooms
out and lowers the view angle to be flat to let you see the road in front of you. It can switch to an
Overview mode to let you follow your position on the map.
●
While cruising: If there is no active route and you are just cruising, Smart zoom can zoom in if
you drive slowly and zoom out when you drive at a high speed.
Auto zoom
Turn Auto zoom on to configure your Travel Companion to perform the automatic map scaling and
tilting. You can turn off this feature to navigate with a fixed zoom level and vertical view angle.

Restore Lock-to-Position and Smart Zoom
You can move, rotate, tilt, and zoom the map during navigation.
When you rotate, tilt, or zoom the map, the map follows your position but does not change the view
parameter you have modified. Tap
to return to the full Smart Zoom mode.
to
If you move the map, all parts of Smart Zoom are deactivated, and the view freezes. Tap
configure your Travel Companion to follow your position (Lock-to-Position) and re-enable Smart
Zoom.
Turning on Restore Lock-to-Position configures the Travel Companion to automatically lock to the
position after a few seconds of inactivity.
You can also set the time-out. Shorter delays are best if you tend to accidentally change the map display,
but you might prefer a longer delay if you often look for things around your position while driving.
WARNING! Remember to look at the display only if it is absolutely safe to do so.
NOTE: If you tap
before this automatic feature comes into effect, Smart Zoom and
Lock-to-Position is re-enabled instantly.
Zoom in after find
When the Zoom in after find feature is turned off, the Travel Companion centers the map to the location
selected in Go to but does not change the zoom level. If you turn this feature on, the Travel Companion
zooms in to the selected point.
The zoom level in this case depends on the type of object you have searched for. For example, in the
case of a city search, the zoom level shows you the whole region/state or at least a significant part of it
around its centre. Selecting a POI, a junction or an exact address gives you a closer look with only a
few streets on the display.
Overview mode
Turn this feature on, and the Overview mode is triggered when the next turn is at a distance.
Turn distance determines when the Travel Companion switches to the Overview and back to the
Navigation view. If the distance from the next route event is more than the value set here, the map view
switches to Overview mode, a top-down, North-up oriented map view with a zoom level that enables
you to see a larger part of the map around your position. As you approach the route event, normal
navigation returns automatically.
The Overview zoom level determines the fixed zoom level of the map in the Overview mode. You can
change the zoom level manually at any time, but when you enter the Overview mode again, the zoom
level is reset to this value.
Sound settings
You can configure the parameters to determine the sounds and sound alerts on your Travel Companion
on this screen.

box. Key sounds are audible confirmations of either pressing hardware buttons or tapping the touch
screen.
NOTE: The sound effects on your Travel Companion are context sensitive. They are different if, for
example you open or close a window, or enable or disable a setting. These effects indicates if you have
entered enough letters of a street name to have a short list of matching street names displayed on the
screen.
Dynamic Volume
When driving at a high speed, the noise in the car might be too loud to clearly understand the voice
guidance messages and perceive the key sounds. Using Dynamic Volume, you can configure your
Travel Companion to increase the volume when your speed exceeds a certain minimum, and reach its
highest volume at the given maximum speed.
To change dynamic volume:
1.
Tap Dynamic Volume to turn on the feature.
2.

certain road types are excluded from the route, or some of the restrictions might not be taken into
account.
Additionally, when either Bus or Lorry is chosen, the Travel Companion assumes that high speeds
cannot be achieved, and this information is taken into account when calculating the route, the estimated
time enroute (ETE), and the estimated time of arrival (ETA).
You can choose the type of vehicle from the available values:

Route calculation method
You can choose from three different route types.
Short
Choosing Short results in a route that has the smallest total distance of all possible routes between the
given points. This is usually preferred by cyclists or slow vehicles.
Fast
Choosing Fast results in the quickest possible route, given that you can travel at or near the speed limits
on all included roads. This is usually preferred for fast and normal cars.
Economical
This setting is a combination of the previous two. Although it is used to select the fastest solution, if there
is another route taking a bit more time but a lot less distance compared to the fastest one, your Travel
Companion chooses this one instead to save fuel.
Off-route recalculation
Once a route is planned, this setting offers options on what to do when you deviate from that route.
Automatic
The route is recalculated automatically a few seconds after you go astray.
Off
If you stick to the original route, and you wish to get back to it on your own, you can disable recalculation.
Guidance stops until you return to the recommended route.
Avoidances
To select the route that fits your needs, you can also set which road types are to be considered for or
to be excluded from the route if possible.
●
On Check items to avoid screen, select the road type you require to avoid.
●
Clear the check box to use the specific road type.
NOTE: Excluding a road type does not necessarily mean that the road type can be completely avoided
on your routes. If your destination can only be accessed by using some of the excluded road types, your
Travel Companion uses them minimally. In this case a warning icon is displayed on the Route
Information screen, and the road that does not match your preference is displayed using an alternate
color on the map.
Unpaved Roads
Unpaved roads are excluded by default, as they can be in a bad condition and you usually cannot reach
the speed limit on them.
Motorways
When driving a slow car or towing another vehicle, you might prefer to avoid motorways.
Route settings
61
Ferries
The accessibility of temporary ferries is not necessarily included in the map data. Additionally, since you
might need to pay a fare, you could consider disabling them.
Cross-border planning
By default your Travel Companion plans routes using the border crossing points. However, if you live
near the border, you can disable border crossing with this switch to remain within one country.
U-turns
Although displayed along with road types, this is a type of action. Most drivers prefer to replace them
with a few normal left and/or right turns at the next junctions. This option is selected by default, as
Avoid.
Turning back on dual carriageways is not considered as a U-turn.
NOTE: U-turns handle Via points as stopovers with regards to U-turns. It means disabling U-turns on
this screen avoids U-turns during the entire route if possible, but when reaching a Via point, the
subsequent part of the route might be planned starting in the opposite direction.
Permit needed
To access certain roads or areas, you might need a special permit or permission from the owners. These
roads are excluded from your routes by default. Clear the check box if your vehicle is authorized to enter
these roads.
Toll roads
You can select this option to disable Toll roads and configure your Travel Companion to plan the best
toll-free route, you may have to travel more to avoid paying a toll.
Carpool lanes (for the USA map only)
You can configure your Travel Companion to use carpool lanes when planning routes. These lanes are
currently available in the USA only.
This option is displayed only if the USA map is available in the Travel Companion.
Keep position on road
Your Travel Companion is intended for use primarily for vehicle navigation. Therefore Lock-on-Road
displays the position arrow precisely over roads, and corrects small GPS errors.
NOTE: By turning off Lock-on-Road you also turn off the GPS position error filtering. The position
displayed on the map is subject to possible position errors and position fluctuations.

Travel Companion to warn you when you exceed the current limit. This information is region-specific
and might not be available for your region (ask your local dealer) or might not be fully correct for all roads
in the map. Use this option to determine whether you need to receive the warnings or not.
You can set two different kinds of behavior for the warning: One is applied up to a certain speed limit
and another that is used at speeds limits above that.
Speeding tolerance
You can configure the warning to prompt you when you exceed the speed limit percentage specified
here.
Both positive and negative values can be given.
Alternative speed limit
If the speed limit of the current road segment equals or is above this limit, the speed warning uses the
Alternative speeding tolerance instead of the previous one.
Warnings
63
Move the slider to its right-most position to turn off the alternative speed warning. This way the Speeding
tolerance slider determines the warning for all roads.
Alternative speeding tolerance
If the speed limit of the current road reaches the value set at Alternative speed limit, this setting
replaces Speeding tolerance. The slider works exactly as for Speeding tolerance.
Enable safety cameras
Your Travel Companion can warn you when you approach known speed and red light cameras
previously uploaded or copied into the device, or saved manually in the software. This can be done
using the Cursor menu.
On this screen you can enable or disable the visible and audible warning for known cameras.
WARNING! Detecting the location of speed cameras might be prohibited by law in certain countries
or regions. Be sure to check if it is legal before you turn on this warning.

15 Navigation extras
You can use the additional features of the Travel Companion to enhance your travel experience.
Trip Planner
Your Travel Companion includes access to HP iPAQ trip planning services. Visit http://www.ipaq.com
to learn about the latest services and content available. Here you will find the free Web-based trip
planning service that allows you to personalize your travel by creating custom trip itineraries that you
can transfer to your Travel Companion for use during your travels.
Traffic Message Channel (TMC)
Your Travel Companion can provide you with better routes if Traffic Message Channel (TMC) information
is available. TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio Data System (RDS) used for broadcasting
real-time traffic and weather information.
NOTE: TMC is not a global service. It might not be available in your country or region. Ask your local
dealer for coverage details.
You need a TMC receiver attached to your Travel Companion to receive TMC information. To learn
more about compatible TMC solutions for your area, visit http://www.hp.com/accessories/ipaq.
If public TMC data is broadcast at your location, the Travel Companion automatically takes into account
the TMC information received. The receiver automatically searches the FM radio stations for TMC data,
and the decoded information is immediately used in route planning. As soon as the Travel Companion
receives traffic information that might affect your route, the Travel Companion warns you that it is
recalculating the route. Navigation then continues with a new route that is optimal considering the most
up-to-date traffic conditions.
List of traffic messages
Tap Traffic Messages in the Navigation Extras menu for a list of the nearest TMC events. The list is
arranged by the distance from your current location.
Use the scroll bar to navigate through the screens, and see traffic difficulties farther away from your
current position. You can alternately use one of the following options:

can be used with the help of the Travel Companion.
●
Recalculate to avoid traffic
You can enable or disable recalculation of the route during navigation based on TMC information.
Disabling the route does not prevent the system from using TMC data for route planning, but does
not trigger an automatic recalculation when the traffic conditions change during your journey.
●
Sort events by distance/type
The list of traffic events can be ordered by their distance from the current position, or by their type.
●
Event list
You can choose to display certain TMC event types in the Event list or choose All events to show
all types.
TMC radio settings
This screen shows the selected TMC source and allows you to change the radio settings.
Selected FM radio station
The name and frequency of the selected radio station is displayed. The signal strength information is
indicated by a bar.
The radio can be tuned manually with the plus and minus buttons, or it can be automatic if auto tuner
is selected. With auto tuner, the radio scans the frequency range, tests every radio station for TMC data,
and stops when the first TMC source is found.
If there are no radio stations broadcasting TMC data in your area, and auto tuner is turned on, the
receiver keeps searching for the radio station. You can see the frequency continuously sweeping across
the FM CCIR radio band (87.5-108 MHz). When you move to an area with TMC information, the indicator
shows the frequency, and detailed information for the TMC station.
Exclude selected station
If you wish to receive TMC data from a different radio station, tap this button. After the current radio
station is added to the list of excluded stations, the Travel Companion searches for another TMC station,
and skips the excluded station in future.

16 GPS data screen
The GPS data screen is a collection of information received from the GPS device. The GPS data screen
displays the visible part of the sky above you, with your position as the centre. The satellites are
displayed at their current positions. The GPS receives data from both the green and yellow satellites.
Signals from the yellow satellites are only received. The green ones are used by the GPS to calculate
your current location. You can also view the satellite signal strength bars. The grey bars are for the
yellow satellites and colored bars are for the green satellites. The more satellites your GPS tracks (the
green ones), the more accurate your calculated position is.
The GPS data screen also includes information like current position in latitude/longitude format,
elevation, speed, date, time, the GPS connection status, and calculated accuracy.
NOTE: Accuracy can be affected by several factors that Travel Companion cannot take into account.
Use this accuracy information only as an estimation.
