ROUTING OPTIONS

Here you can set the way NDrive calculates routings.

NDrive V9 User Guide

Routing Options:

Faster: NDrive will calculate routes by giving high priority to faster roads, such as Highways or Freeways, minimizing travel time;

Shortest: Route calculation will be made by choosing the shortest way, minimizing the miles to drive, but without road category;

Pedestrian Mode: NDrive will calculate routes without considering traffic signs, such as one-way signs, for example.

Adventure Mode: Ideal for off-road navigation. Refer to

Tolls:

"Adventure Mode" chapter for more details.

Yes: If necessary NDrive will use toll roads to minimize travel time;

Avoid: When calculating its route, NDrive will avoid toll roads. If that’s not possible, you’ll hear the information “Toll” at the end of the calculation.

NDrive V9 User Guide

SAFETY OPTIONS

Here you can set a few parameters to make a safer driving.

Speed Limit Alarm: If you wish, NDrive will activate a sound alarm every time you exceed a certain speed. This allows you to set your speed or turn the alarm off. Note: Actual speed is always lower than the one shown by your vehicle's speed indicator.

Road Speed Alert: Every road has a legal speed limit. You can, at this point, choose to be warned each time you exceed the speed limit of the road you’re travelling on. E.g. every time you exceed the 70 mph speed limit on a Motorway a visual alarm, a sound alarm or both will be activated, according to your preferences.

Safety Camera Alert: Enable or disable the fixed radar alert (where available). You can also import new fixed radar packages in "kml" format.

For more information see www.ndrive.com.

SYSTEM

In this menu you can change some system settings. The options available in this chapter may vary depending on the NDrive model:

Time Format: Use 12 or 24 hour format

Time zone: As soon as NDrive fixes valid satellite signal, the device will automatically set the local time, according to the Time zone set here;

Calibrate screen: On selected NDrive models, like Touch and TouchXL you can use this feature to calibrate the screen, improving its precision and response time.

8

NDrive V9 User Guide

GPS

In this menu you can set some GPS configuration parameters.

GPS: At any time you can turn off the GPS signal reception. This option becomes useful whenever you need to explore the map on an open area, where normally the device would try to locate your position after a few seconds, making it difficult to browse along the NDrive map.

Comm. Port & Coordinates: These two options are only available on

Windows Mobile based models and they're useful whenever the automatic search for GPS module settings fails.

Coordinates: Here you can set the coordinates format. This parameter also defines the search/navigate by coordinates format. There are three format types:

DMS: Degrees, Minutes and Seconds

DMM: Degrees and Minutes

DDD: Degrees and decimal degrees

NDrive V9 User Guide

DATA IMPORT / EXPORT

Here you'll be able to import and export data such as favourite locations and safety camera packages from a given country. This characteristic assumes interactivity with Google Earth application, in which you can pinpoint your locations, save them on "kml" format and import them using NDrive's import/export feature. There are also thousands of internet communities that offer a large choice of favourite spots and safety camera packages.

With this feature you can:

Import safety camera packages and replace them with the default ones;

For more information please read the "Import/Export Reference Guide", available at www.ndrive.com.

Very Important: If all procedures are correctly followed by the user, this feature won't reveal any data loss issue. Anyway NDrive won't be responsible for any favourite or safety camera point's loss along the process.

10

NDrive V9 User Guide

…FIND / NAVIGATE

After these basic NDrive system settings, the following section shows the two submenus which are presented on the main Menu screen.

The search and navigate buttons expand to the same menu, so their reference will be made together.

Navigate:

This option can chosen whenever you pretend to start a route and distance calculation. If your device has a valid GPS signal, the navigation mode is automatically activated allowing you to visualize all the instructions/manoeuvres as well as the voice commands. If the device has no GPS signal (inside buildings or closed locations) NDrive will activate Demo mode. This option will show all the route and manoeuvres until destination point.

Find:

This option can be used to explore all map contents, such as addresses, postcodes, coordinates, points of interest, etc. It's just a research function.

11

ADDRESS

NDrive V9 User Guide

Fig.4 – Choose the country in which you want to perform the search by clicking on the flag;

Fig.4 – Write the city, village, municipality or location name that best suits the address that you are searching;

Fig.5 – Here you can choose between the city centre or specify the street name;

Fig.6 – Now you can go directly to the street centre, see the street's crosses or be more specific by writing the house number.

12

NDrive V9 User Guide

Tips:

There's no need to write the "avenue", "street" or "road" prefixes;

Search locations and street names by initials, least common name or full name;

Whenever you choose locations or streets, NDrive keeps record of all the choices in order to accelerate future searches;

In case you pretend to see all the results of a given search you can hide the keyboard by sliding down your finger. You can now go through all the results by using the same gesture recognition to scroll down the list.

13

NDrive V9 User Guide

FAVOURITE

To locate a previously user defined favourite, follow the steps as indicated in the pictures below:

Tips:

You can create an unlimited number of categories (by default NDrive has three categories created) and inside each one you can create na unlimited number of favourites;

Favourites can be used to store places of personal interest so that you can find them without the need of performing a complete search

14

NDrive V9 User Guide

procedure; you can also share them with other NDrive users using the

Import/Export option;

HOME

To locate a previously defined point on the map such as "Home", follow these steps:

Tips:

The "House" pretends to be a special favourite that you'll use many times;

To store the "House" location for the first time use the same procedure as when storing a favourite (See Add Favourites). Once located on the map use the "Add House" button located on the lower dark bar of your screen. This button is active for 5 seconds every time you click on a map point.

15

NDrive V9 User Guide

RECENT

Recent locations are a history of all previous searches. Recent Menu saves streets, cities, points of interest, postcodes or even coordinates.

POINT OF INTEREST

The search for Points of Interest is very flexible. It is possible to search by a given city (or location) or by proximity (related to the place where you are located on NDrive map).

You can perform a Global search, by Group (ex: Transportation) or even by category (ex: Railway Station).

16

By City or Place

NDrive V9 User Guide

Fig.3 – Use the normal search procedures by city or location in a given country, just like the search for an address.

Fig.3 – Here you can search on all categories or just on a specific one.

Remember: to scroll through all the results slide your finger on the screen and

NDrive will recognize your gesture.

Fig.5 – If you are certain about the point of interest category you can specify it as a way to shorten the results;

Fig.6 – The result list represents all the points in the given city and is displayed by crescent order relating to the city centre.

17

NDrive V9 User Guide

Fig.6 – You can as well shorten the list by writing the supposed name of the

Point Of Interest.

Tips:

If you are not certain on which Group a Point Of Interest is allocated (ex: church or cathedral; hotel or hostel) please use a more embracing category or even the option to search all categories simultaneously.

Nearby POI

Alternatively, you can search only the Points Of Interest closer to you (without a valid GPS signal NDrive will display the points that are closer to the point selected on the map).

Even in this kind of search NDrive allows you to use the on-screen keyboard to shorten the results, or specify a group or category.

18

POSTCODE

NDrive V9 User Guide

All streets belong to a specific postcode, normally used by post offices to deliver mail.

You can use the postcode to find a given street. Sometimes it's faster, more practical and precise to use postcodes instead of the city or location. After entering the postcode NDrive will display the list of streets covered by that postcode.

Note: If a given street spreads for two or more postcodes, NDrive will only display the segment that belongs to the postcode entered by you.

19

NDrive V9 User Guide

COORDINATES

One of the ways to search and determine a specific point to where you need to navigate is by using coordinates.

If you know the coordinates of the location to be searched (in any of the three most used formats) you can write them directly.

This option can also be used for geocaching or search for points off-road. In this case NDrive will navigate you to the nearest street of the given coordinate.

If you wish to navigate directly to an off-road coordinate, you can set the

"Adventure Mode" in the "Settings" Menu. By using this setting NDrive will guide to the exact destination point.

20

COMMUNITIES

The "Communities" feature lets NDrive users share and download favourite packs, taking advantage of a new online community concept, where all NDrive users are invited to publish and/or download favourite packs created and sorted according to infinite interest areas.

Ex: The NDrive user A marks several favourite points on his NDrive and calls them "Favourite Foreign Restaurants". That user publishes that favourite pack.

The user B accesses NDrive server and finds that favourite pack. Since he's also interested in foreign cooking e can download the pack to use on its own

NDrive. NDrive User B can even vote on that pack, using a 1-5 star system.

At this point the variables are infinite, and just limited by the NDrive users' creativity and areas of interest.

Note: To download and publish favourite groups you must have an active data connection, like GPRS, 3G, ActiveSync or Wireless. Downloading and publishing favourite packs is a service that uses data connection and it is charged by your mobile operator. NDrive does not take part on this process.

The "Communities" feature is only available for connected mobile devices, such as Windows Mobile or Symbian OS devices.

30

NDrive V9 User Guide

The next screenshot displays the list of published favourite packs that a regular user would see when accessing this menu:

1. Sort by publishing date;

2. Sort by download date;

MY ACCOUNT

To be able to publish or vote on downloaded favourite packs you must create a user account. To do that go to "My Account" menu and proceed as following:

34

NDrive V9 User Guide

35

NDrive V9 User Guide

Note: To be able to create a community user account, a data connection is required, such as GPRS, 3G, ActiveSync or Wireless. This process is charged by the internet provider. NDrive does not take part on the process.

Tip:

Be creative when choosing your nickname, because that's the name that all other users will see.

Please backup your password. It's not possible to recover a lost password.

…SEND MY LOCATION

If you need someone to know where you are, you can do it very effectively by using your NDrive. If you want to send your location to someone who also owns an NDrive and the same map, follow the procedures to send them your location:

Your friend will receive a perfectly normal message, but once they activate their

NDrive then will be notified of the receipt of a location. He will be able to navigate from your current position to the received location or save it as a favourite.

Important Note: This option is only available on GSM connected devices.

36

NDrive V9 User Guide

Note: to successfully send a location, you must have enough credit to send a written message (sms). The prices vary according to the mobile telephone service you may use. NDrive has no control over this process.

ADVENTURE MODE

Besides the normal on-road navigation, with NDrive you can also navigate offroad and using the entire search features available.

After setting "Adventure Mode" on "Routing Options", you can navigate everywhere without being stuck to roads. In this mode NDrive will indicate the finishing point's direction, leaving the user the option to choose the best track.

During Adventure Mode, these are the screen indications:

1. Direction

2. Distance to destination

3. Time left to destination

4. Distance travelled

5. Altitude

6. Actual speed

Tips:

You can use the Adventure Mode both on your vehicle and by foot;

If you're travelling off-road, the most effective way to find a location is by its coordinates.

NDrive V9 User Guide

GPS INFORMATION SCREEN DETAILS

The Global Positioning System is commonly known as GPS and is a satellite positioning system.

Each GPS satellite sends a signal to your NDrive device on the ground.

Therefore, GPS receptors are passive satellite signal receivers. They also require a clear sky view and may underperform on dense wooded areas or next to tall buildings. GPS performance depends on a very precise time reference, which is granted by the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO) atomic clocks.

The global positioning system (GPS) makes use of a satellite network, which allows us to use our receivers and thus to know geographical position anytime, anywhere on the planet. You can at any time get additional information on the signal reception quality, as well as on the geographical features of your current location.

42

NDrive V9 User Guide

TIPS FOR MORE EFFECTIVE USE

GPS signal fix: To obtain an effective GPS signal place your NDrive in the windshield inside your vehicle, in a way that it doesn't interfere with your driving.

When using it outside, it will be more difficult to fix satellites in places with high trees and buildings. In the first use, NDrive can take up to 30 minutes to make the first GPS fix. After this the procedure will only take a few seconds, unless you travel by plane or change country continuously. The GPS antenna is located in the rear upper part of your device and must be directed towards the sky at all times. Placing NDrive in the seats will decrease the ability to fix GPS signal.

Apparently wrong route calculation: This issue may have different explanations:

- Lower GPS signal which will indicate you a wrong position;

- Map data not updated. You can update all map data through NDrive's update system (NDrive Agent, available for free on our website) or by buying new maps on www.ndrive.com.

- Wrong routing calculation preferences. You can set routing preferences on the

Settings menu.

NDrive froze and doesn't run:

- Reset the device in the small hole located in the back or on the side. Use a pointing object and touch the hole carefully.

- If the problem persists, try to take out the sd card (if your device has one) and put it in again. It is normal that sometimes the card reading process becomes unstable.

Not efficient battery: When you get your NDrive out of the box, normally the device has little battery power, so we advise to fully charge it to maintain its battery quality.

Always use the supplied car charger. There may be other car chargers that use different settings than the ones required by NDrive devices, so please use only supplied accessories.

43

NDrive V9 User Guide

Use the supplied usb charger. This way you will be able to charge your

NDrive and update it at the same time, by using NDrive Agent, available for free at www.ndrive.com

You can also use the wall charger (when supplied) or buy a compatible one on www.ndrive.com. Please check our technical support for compatibility.

If your NDrive device appears not to be charging, please insist for a few more minutes. In some cases all electronic devices need to be charging for several minutes before they are able to operate. All devices must be charged for at least 5 hours to allocate the "full battery" memory.

NDrive stopped working after an update: Before using the NDrive Agent it is strongly advice to make a backup of all files by copying them to your computer.

NDrive Agent will make use of your internet connection, usb connection and an operative system component to manage all mobile devices communication and transfer to your device all the new files. If the process is not well executed, please try the connection again. If the problem persists please contact our technical support. Depending on the installed maps the update process may take a few hours. Connection breakdown may be a problem for NDrive files integrity.

It seems that NDrive cannot fix any GPS signal even in the windshield:

Some vehicles have steel-plated windshields and can strongly decrease the

GPS signal fix process. In this case you should approach the device to the side windows and not to the front window. If your vehicle does not have steel-plated windows and you still cannot get any GPS signal, please contact our technical support.

HOW TO BUY MORE MAPS?

Depending on the NDrive model and configuration you will have full access to a map or a set of maps. To know the list of maps available on your device use the button "About" on your NDrive's Main menu. On the map list you can also see

44

NDrive V9 User Guide

the maps' release date (here you can check its degree of accuracy) and if they are activated or not.

If you wish to buy new maps or update the existing ones, please go to www.ndrive.com and choose "Buy Maps". Choose the map or map package you wish to buy, proceed with the buying, download and install according to the supplied instructions.

At the moment there are more 70 maps available. This number is growing on daily basis and according to the availability of the different map data suppliers.

Each country has a map data file identified by its initials and must always be located inside the "maps" folder of your NDrive. If the maps are not inside this folder they will not be recognized by NDrive application. Once installed, the map must be activated using the supplied serial number. For additional information about this topic please refer to the "help" section in www.ndrive.com.

When using the NDrive Agent application you can also buy maps directly, simply by clicking on the tab "Buy Maps".

HOW TO UPDATE NDRIVE?

NDrive application is continuously suffering software updates and evolutions that may be presented without any cost to the end user. These updates normally improve several application behaviours, add new features or simply

45

NDrive V9 User Guide

add compatibility with new devices. Always use the NDrive Agent application
