Operating instructions

General information

Operating the system while driving

Allowing yourself to be distracted by the Travel-

Pilot RGS 08 can lead to a situation where you are

“driving blind”.

If you are not paying attention to the current traffic situation around you, you could cause a serious accident.

Please consider the fact that at a speed of 50 km/h you are travelling 14 m every second.

• Before starting off on your journey, make sure you have familiarised yourself with the system.

• While you are driving, only use the voice output and directional symbols on the monitor.

• Stop your vehicle at a suitable location if you wish to re-program the TravelPilot RGS 08 or look up more detailed information.

Route guidance

The current traffic routing situation can differ from the data stored on the CD-ROM.

Due to system limitations, the TravelPilot RGS 08 cannot warn of altered traffic routing conditions e.g. due to road construction measures. If you do not pay attention to the actual traffic routing conditions, there is a danger that you will cause a serious accident. Furthermore, you will be violating road traffic regulations.

• Please ensure that you take notice of signs relating to the current traffic routing situation. As the driver, you are solely responsible for traffic safety.

• Use the latest CD-ROM for the TravelPilot

RGS 08. Ask your dealer for the latest update.

Area of use

The TravelPilot RGS 08 has been designed for use in passenger cars.

The CD-ROM currently does not include any limitations relating to lorries and buses such as height restrictions or maximum permitted loads. If these are disregarded, there is a danger that you will cause an accident.

Furthermore, you will be violating road traffic regulations.

• The TravelPilot RGS 08 can only be used, without any limitations applying, in passenger cars.

Product information

The TravelPilot RGS 08 is an active, self-sufficient guidance system.

Using this system, you can let yourself be guided to your required destination if a navigation CD has been inserted that is valid for your present location and destination in question.

Other CDs, such as the Merian Scout travel guide and country-specific CDs, are also available.

The guidance system provides audio-visual information.

You will be given precise information over the car stereo loudspeakers with regard to such things as when and where to take the next road turning.

The volume and tone of the voice output can be adjusted.

The monitor displays the same information visually. Furthermore, the name of the street that the vehicle is presently driving down is displayed as well as the current distance to the destination. Prior to taking a turning, the name of the road that is to be turned into is also displayed.

If you did not follow a suggested direction, a new route to the destination will be calculated within a few seconds. So, for instance, this means that you can by all means take a

“secret route around the houses” that you are familiar with even though the TravelPilot has at the time given you other directions.

The system knows where one-way streets, areas restricted to traffic (e.g. pedestrian precincts, etc.) and no-left or noright turns are situated, and takes these into account when calculating routes for passenger cars.

Delivery

TravelPilot RGS 08

The navigation system comprises a powerful computer with integrated CD-ROM drive, GPS receiver, gyro, remote control, a 5" colour monitor, a GPS antenna and the latest

CD-ROM version.

Start guidance

Fast route

Short route

Individual

If the destination has been entered, the cursor will automatically be positioned in front of the

Start guidance menu item.

By pressing the ENT key, the Route options menu will appear. The following options for calculating a route are available:

A route is calculated that requires as short a journey time as possible to your destination.

An optimised route is calculated to your destination. The route is kept as short as possible.

This menu item allows you to include or exclude the Motorway, Ferry and Toll options for the route calculation. To do so, move the cursor in front of the required option and confirm your selection by pressing the ENT key.

By repeatedly pressing the ENT key, the selected option can be activated (with) or deactivated (w/o i.e. without). Furthermore, using this same method of selection with the Route menu item, you can set whether a quick or short route should be calculated on the basis of the selected options. Any combination of options can be selected (e.g. with motorway with ferry - no toll - short route).

14

After you have selected the options you require, position the cursor in front of Start guid-

ance and begin the route calculation process

by pressing the ENT key.

Note:

A situation my arise where a route is calculated which includes an option that you actually wanted excluded when making your selections. If, for example, you selected the “without ferry” option but your destination is only reachable by ferry because it is located on an island, the system will calculate a route using the “with ferry” option contrary to your selection.

After you have entered your destination and guidance has been started by pressing the

ENT key, you can begin your journey. The system begins to calculate a route using the road map that is stored on the CD. The display shows a message informing you that the route is being calculated. Afterwards, an arrow appears indicating the direction in which the destination lies. The Calculating route message is displayed and the voice output indicates that: “The route is being calculated”. In addition, the distance to the destination “as the crow flies” is also displayed.

15

If you are travelling in your vehicle down a digitised street, you will be guided to your destination (after the route calculation has been completed) by spoken recommendations and by the navigation symbols in the display.

The voice output volume can be increased/ decreased during navigation by pressing the

/ keys. If you press the key, the latest voice announcement will be repeated. By pressing the ENT key during your journey, the destination information will be displayed for approx. 4 seconds. While the destination information is being shown, you can switch to the

Nav menu by pressing the ENT key again in order to, say, access the Info menu.

If you are driving your vehicle down a nondigitised road (e.g. car park, garage, multistorey car park) the Off road message will be displayed. If you are driving your vehicle outside the digitised network (e.g. abroad), Off

map will be displayed.

In such cases, you can orientate yourself by referring to the arrow shown in the display which indicates the direction in which your destination lies.

After entering the digitised network again from a non-digitised road, the system requires a few hundred metres of travel distance before it can start issuing route recommendations again.

16

Should you leave the recommended route, the system will automatically calculate a new route to your destination from your current position.

Upon reaching your destination, the display will show a chequered flag and a voice announcement will be made: “You have reached your destination”. After the flag disappears, the monitor will then only display the name of the street you are presently driving down or, if your vehicle is stationary, the Nav menu will be shown.

Note:

If the destination you entered is not included in the digitised network of streets (e.g. special destinations such as workshops, etc.), an arrow will appear in the display, as soon as you leave the digitised area, indicating the direction in which your destination lies. The voice output announcement for this is: “You have reached the area of your destination”. If you are in the immediate vicinity of your destination, the voice output announcement will inform you that: “You have reached your destination”. If the destination you selected (e.g. a stored location) is not situated within the digitised area, you will hear the announcement: “No route guidance is available to your destination”. The display will then show No route and the arrow will point in the direction in which the destination lies.

17

Traffic congestion

Using the “Traffic congestion” function, the calculated route can be altered according to the current traffic situation. This means that if you see a problem with the traffic up ahead or you are informed about this over the radio

(e.g. a traffic jam or road works), you can exclude certain route sections starting from your current vehicle position. The route sections that can be excluded refer to the road network that lies ahead of you and your vehicle. Each section comprises the section of road located between two road junctions. The first section that can be excluded comprises the length of road starting from your vehicle and ending at the next junction but one. The navigation system then calculates a new route starting from the next possible turning which, if possible, will bypass the traffic disruption. To call up the traffic congestion function, press the key.

For example:

You have entered a small town and are driving your vehicle between road turning A and turning B. The travel information you hear on the radio informs you that there is a disruption to traffic between turning C and D.

Now press the key and the traffic congestion menu will appear. A slider control will appear with a certain distance displayed above

18

it. This is the distance from the current vehicle position up to junction C. By pressing the key, you can add the subsequent route section to this selection as well.

In our example, this would be the section between C and D. By pressing the key, the sections you selected can be removed from the exclusion list again. Once you have selected the desired length of the route section to be excluded, press the ENT key. A new route will then be calculated taking the traffic disruption into account.

By pressing the Abort menu item, you can leave the traffic congestion menu without any changes having been made. The navigation menu will then be displayed again.

If an alternative route was calculated and you press the key again, the traffic congestion menu will appear again and will offer you the additional option of deleting the alternative route. If you want to do this, position the cursor in front of Delete and press the ENT key.

A new route will then be calculated and the navigation menu will appear.

Note:

The traffic congestion function is cancelled either when the destination has been reached, when a new destination is entered or when a new traffic jam is entered.

19

Now select the letters “I”, “L”, “D”, “E” and “S” one after another. The input field should now contain “HILDES”.

This entry will be sufficient to come close to the city name HILDESHEIM in the index.

• Conclude the input procedure by pressing ENT.

The place name index will then be displayed and the cursor will be positioned next to HILDESHEIM.

• Press ENT.

After a short time, the monitor will display the selected destination,

HILDESHEIM.

36

Note:

If you do not see the place name you require in the overview, you can page through the index by pressing / .

Since, in this example, we want to enter the junction Kaiserstraße/Bahnhofsallee,

• position the cursor on “Street/Junction” and

• press ENT.

Select the letter “K” by

• pressing / or / until “K” is displayed inversely.

• press SET.

“K” will now appear in the input field.

Now select the letters “A”, “I” and “S” one after another. The input field should now contain “KAIS”.

This entry will be sufficient to come close to the street name KAISER-

STRASSE in the index.

• Conclude the input procedure by pressing ENT.

The cursor will be positioned next to KAISER-FRIEDRICH-S, i.e. the first street name beginning with “KAIS”.

37

Note:

The monitor will display “KAISER-FRIEDRICH-S” because the street name is too long for the monitor’s screen. You can read the rest of the name by pressing . In this case the name is actually KAISER-FRIEDRICH-

STRASSE.

• Position the cursor on KAISERSTRASSE and

• press ENT.

After a short time, the monitor will display the selected destination,

“HILDESHEIM KAISERSTRASSE”.

This amount of information is already sufficient to start navigation, however, in this example, the destination we want is the junction Kaiserstraße/

Bahnhofsallee.

• Now position the cursor on “Junction” and

• press ENT.

The monitor will display all streets that intersect or join on to Kaiserstraße.

• Now position the cursor on BAHNHOFSALLEE and

• press ENT.

The destination entry is now complete, the monitor displays the destination

“HILDESHEIM KAISERSTRASSE BAHNHOFSALLEE” and the cursor is positioned in front of Start guidance.

Day/night mode

The monitor display can be switched to:

Day mode

Red mode

Black mode

It is recommended that the display be set to “red mode” or the monitor be switched off if the bright coloured display becomes irritating, especially, for example, while driving at night.

Switching:

• Press SET as many times as is necessary until the required mode appears.

If the screen is set to “black mode”, you can switch back to “day mode” by pressing any key.

Demo mode

Guide for operating the system when installed in a shop display panel:

If the RGS 08 is to be operated in demo mode while installed in a presentation panel (e.g. in a shop display), a minimum calibration must be carried out. Firstly, switch off the TravelPilot. Next press the cursor down key and switch on the TravelPilot. After the service menu appears, close it by accessing the Navigation menu item.

To run the demo mode, proceed as follows:

1. Select Demo from the DSC menu. The demo menu will then appear.

If Normal is selected, the route will be travelled along only once and will then stop. A new destination must then be entered and route guidance must be restarted.

If Auto repeat is selected, the demo will run in a continuous loop, i.e.

it will continue to repeat the route from the starting point to the destination.

2. After selecting one of these menu items, the system will restart.

3. After the system has restarted, select Enter location from the DSC menu and, as described in the chapter entitled “Example for entering a destination”, select a town, a street and the appropriate junction.

After entering the address, the distance to the junction must then be entered.

It is recommended that the position be set to 50 metres ahead by positioning the cursor in front of 50 m ahead and pressing ENT.

4. Next, select Set location and press the ENT key.

40

5. Now enter a destination in the usual manner and start route guidance. After the route has been calculated, the demo will run automatically. While in demo mode, all functions can be operated as if the unit were operating under real conditions.

6. The system can be made to return to normal navigation mode by selecting the Navigation menu item in the DSC menu. The navigation computer will then restart and will return to the Nav menu.

Appendix

CD-ROM

The data required for route guidance are stored digitally on the CD-ROM.

For details on the exact contents of the CD, please refer to the information accompanying it.

Changing the CD

The CD-ROM can only be changed whilst the vehicle is stationary. The system must be switched on. To eject a CD-ROM, slide the locking lever to the left. The CD-ROM will then be ejected. While the CD is being ejected, the locking lever must not be slid back to the right. Carefully insert the new navigation CD-ROM – with its label facing uppermost – as far into the CD slot as necessary until the CD-ROM player begins to draw the CD in by itself. After the CD has been drawn in completely, slide the locking lever back to the right again.

Note:

After changing the CD, the system will, if necessary, automatically reload the language. Loading the language usually takes approx. 30 seconds.

Wrong CD-ROM

If the wrong CD-ROM is inserted into the navigation computer, the following error message will appear: “CD read error. Please eject CD !”. If this is the case, remove the incorrect CD-ROM and replace it with the correct one.

For technical reasons this error message will also appear if the maximum permitted temperature is exceeded while the unit is operating. Let the unit continue running until the internal ventilation fan has cooled the computer down to its normal operating temperature. When this has been achieved, the computer will automatically start up again and the main navigation menu will appear.

Tyre change and calibration

When changing the vehicle’s tyres from summer to winter tyres and back again, errors in distance measurements may arise (in particular if using wheel sensors). If, after a tyre change, the resulting distance errors negatively influence the system’s navigation behaviour, the system will need to be re-calibrated. Please consult a TravelPilot dealer with regard to this. Normal tyre wear is automatically taken into account by the system.

Caution: If calibration is incorrect, this can lead to a malfunctioning of the system. If in doubt, please consult a TravelPilot dealer.

43

Error messages

If one of the listed error messages appears in the top line of the display while the unit is in operation, please consult your service workshop.

Possible error messages:

• Check calibration

• Check travel sensor

• Check GPS antenna

• Defective GPS receiver

• Check GYRO

CD read error

This error appears if the data could not be read correctly from the CD-ROM

(e.g. due to strong vibrations or a damaged CD-ROM). The error message will have no effect on the functioning of the navigation computer. If the error message does not disappear of its own accord, press any key on the control panel.

Cleaning the display

To clean the display, only use a damp cloth without any cleaning agents.

Subject to changes!
