Welcome To Destinator ND
1.1
Introduction
The BM6300T is a full-featured mobile satellite navigation
system.
It utilizes GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites to
pinpoint your location utilizing the latest mapping data
technology to get you to your destination in the most efficient
and timely manner.
The Destinator ND software assists you in planning your
route and it provides Turn by Turn, Voice and Visual
instructions for getting to your destination.
1.2
Any Turn is OK
With Destinator ND, there is no such thing as a “wrong turn.”
You can deviate from the planned route at any time. For
example, you might want to avoid traffic, detour around road
blocks, or take an alternate route of your choice.
Destinator ND does not require that you turn around and go
back to the original route. Rather, Destinator ND will
calculate a new route to your destination using your current
position.

Destinator ND User Guide
2.2
Installing the BM6300T Navigation System in your car
1.
Connect the supplied car holder to the BM6300T Navigation
Device (place the car holder in the counter bearing on the rear
of the equipment and lock it in place).
2.
Moisten the suction cup and position the car holder on the
windscreen in such a way that you can see the navigation
screen without difficulty and so that it does not hinder a clear
view of the road.
3.
Lock the suction cup in place.
4.
Use the supplied charging cable as required to connect the
BM6300T Navigation System to the vehicle’s power supply in
order to recharge the battery during the journey.
Note: The GPS may take a few minutes to find its current location initially.
For best results, ensure that the GPS has a clear view of the sky.
The GPS may take a few minutes to find its current location
initially. For best results, ensure that the aerial has a clear
view of the sky. In vehicles with metal coated windows it may
not possible to determine your position. If you have coated
windows or you find that you get a poor signal in your vehicle
you can purchase an external aerial from the ‘SatNav
Accessories’ section of www.lowestonweb.com
priced £24.99
Performing a ‘Soft Reset’ - This option restarts the navigation system,
without reinstallation being necessary. A ‘soft reset’ is often used in
order to reorganize the memory. Choose this option if your navigation
system is not responding or working properly. Screw off the end cap
of the stylus and carefully press the point of the end cap into the Reset
opening on the left side of your device. If the ‘Soft Reset’ does not
work try a ‘Hard Reset’ this is done by switching the BM 6300 off using
the switch shown at the top of this sheet. Note: Performing a ‘Hard
Reset’ will result in all data being lost. The application will then
reinstall.

Installing the Software on your Computer
The BM-6300 is supplied with 2 CD’s. One is “BM-6300 Support CD” the other is “Destinator ND”
The “BM-6300 Support CD” Must be installed first; this disc allows you to install Microsoft
Activesync. The Activesync software is required to allow the BM-6300 to communicate with your
computer when connected with the USB cable. The Activesync software must be installed before
connecting the BM-6300 to your computer.

2. Battery Life
Charging time is four hours, and the battery lasts roughly four hours depending on GPS
usage. When not in use the unit can be left connected to the mains to keep the battery
charged and therefore avoid data loss.
3. Getting a signal
Start by going outside. The Bluemedia will take anything up to 10 minutes on its first
start-up to find satellites and orientate itself. Usual time to acquire satellites is around 3-6
minutes from switch-on.
Once it has a signal from a number of satellites, the map will refresh and show your
current location. You can zoom in and out with the magnifying glass buttons on the right
of the screen to show your local area. You can view the signal strength by tapping the
satellite dish symbol on the bottom right corner of the touch screen. This window shows
a ring of satellites, with a green line representing the signal strength.
You need four satellites.
Nearby skyscrapers, large buildings and a roof overhead will obscure the signal. Your
car is usually fine as long as you mount the Bluemedia in the front windscreen.
However, some cars have a heated or UV coated front windscreen. In some cases this
can obstruct the signal. You may need an external antenna if this is the case, but try it
Page 66 of 73
Destinator ND User Guide
first. Antennas can be purchased from www.lowestonweb.com, in the PDA/SATNAV
section.
4. Addresses
In principle, the Bluemedia always knows where you are, as long as you have a signal.
So, all you need to do is tell it where you’re going to.
To enter a destination, press the Flag button once, and choose Address. This will give
you the common address entry window.
At the top, it asks for City, Street, Number. At this point, city will be highlighted, so you
need to type in the city (or village/town) you wish to go to. The first few letters of the city
name will sort the list and you should be able to choose the correct city. Then, tap Street
and it will list all the streets in that city. Again, type in the first few letters of the street
you’re looking for. Once it’s listed, you may also specify a street number but this is often
not necessary. Tap Navigate at the top corner to plot the journey and start driving. This
will return you to the main map window, displaying a thick blue line representing the
route the device is going to guide you on. At this point, walk or drive off and the device
will begin giving verbal and visual direction instructions.
5: Missing Roads
A common question on the GPS helpline is “My road isn’t listed!”
The rule of thumb regarding this is, if you can see the road on the map (when you zoom
in), then it will be on the address list somewhere.
Try:
• Searching by postcode*, then street
• Searching for the street name, then list what cities that road appears in and pick
the likely candidate
• Searching for the village/borough/district as the city, and then street.
You can cycle though the various address input formats with the house symbol,
underneath City-Street-Number. The options are:
City-Street-Number
tap in your city, then choose street and pick your street
Street-City-Number
tap in the street you want, then choose city to list all the
cities/towns/villages which that street exists in
tap in the first part of the postcode and then choose street
Postal Code-Street
Street-Postal Code
City-Street-Street
tap in the street name and choose Postal Code to see a list
of which Postcodes the street appears in
Insert your city/town/village and then two names of roads,
and Destinator will guide you to the junction of those roads
6. Using Points of Interest (POI)
The Bluemedia has the capability to list various useful sites within the local area. These
are handy if you’re somewhere unfamiliar and you need to find a petrol station, or
railway station nearby. It can also plot these as symbols on the map.
Example: it would be useful to see petrol stations on screen.
Tap the flag button, choose POI. Scroll down the list to Petrol/Gasoline Stations. If you
click the Eye symbol, the map will now display all petrol stations. If you tap the +
Page 67 of 73
Destinator ND User Guide
symbol, you will get a list of the various petrol ‘brands’, and you can specify which petrol
stations appear on the map by setting the desired ones with the eye symbol. You could
ask it to just show Tesco or BP stations, for instance.
Scroll down to Tesco and tap it to highlight it in black. If you now tap Items at the top, it
will list all the local Tesco petrol stations, closest ones first. Choose a station and tap
Navigate for the Bluemedia to plot a route to it.
Destinator will not verbally alert you when you approach a POI unless It is set as a
destination.
7. Speed cameras
Speed cameras are located by means of a database of camera positions superimposed
on the map. This is similar to Destinator’s ability to locate POI’s-petrol stations etc. The
speed camera database can (and should) be updated regularly over the web, from
www.lowestonweb.com/destinator. This service is free for 6 months, after which a £30
per year subscription charge will apply. If you find the Bluemedia says nothing when
approaching a speed camera, you may need to update.
For those customers with the Destinator product including European maps, the speed
camera data is not included for countries other than the UK for legal reasons.
The method for performing the update is given as a guide on the web page.
Please make sure the speed camera types are listed in Favorites with open eye symbols
against each one.
Tap the Flag button, then Favourites, and they should all be listed.
You are able to set the warning distances here by choosing a camera type, tapping the
Tools menu, then Settings. You can choose a distance in yards at which Destinator will
announce a speed camera, and a second warning distance too. The default is the first
warning at 400 yards and another at 100 yards.
8. Trip Planning (multi-stop)
This is a feature otherwise known as ‘multi-stop’. Useful for couriers or for long journeys
with several stops, it allows you to create trips which include several destinations.
The Trip Planner consists of a list of Trips and a list of Waypoints.
You can pre-program Destinator with, for example, trips called Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday; or with a trip called ‘holiday’. To each Trip you can add as many waypoints
(stops) as you need.
Use the Tools menu/Add feature to add a location to the waypoints list once you’ve
created a trip.
On the tools menu is also an Optimise feature which can re-arrange the Waypoints list in
the most economical route, closest waypoint first.
9. Favorites
The Favorites section is useful for adding regularly-used addresses. They can be
organised into your own categories. Already listed should be My Favourites.
You can add your own of course: such as Family, Friends, or perhaps branches of your
company.
Page 68 of 73
Destinator ND User Guide
You can add a category by tapping the Tools menu and choosing Add. Tap a name for
your category (“friends”, for example) and also you can choose a picture. Tap Save
when finished.
To see what addresses are stored under a category, tap the category name and tap
Items at the top. You cannot add a favourite address here.
Highlight an address and tap Navigate to start a journey.
To add an address to a category, press the Back (<-) button to exit back to the
Destination window, and then choose Address. Find your address as normal, but
instead of tapping Navigate, choose Tools, then Favourites. You may then tap a name
for the address (such as “Steve’s house”), an optional comment, then choose the
category you want to add it to (such as “friends”).
10. Resetting
Should you ever run into a problem with the software, there are 2 methods of resetting
the unit. The soft reset (no data will be lost) is performed by unscrewing the top of the
stylus and poking the reset button next to the SD card slot on the side of the unit.
A Hard reset (resulting in saved data being lost) is performed by moving the switch on
the back of the unit to the ‘off’ position for 10 seconds and then moving back to ‘on’.
