Safety note
• If you attach the vacuum disk on the glass for a long period of
time, the pressure in the disk slowly reduces and the vacuum disk
may fall off.
• The Navigator holder may fall off at a sudden stop, thus causing a
dangerous situation. We recommend it should be installed close to
the dashboard so it can be supported properly.
• Applying too much force to adjust while the connecting arm is
tightly fixed, may deform the rubber disk connecting all the
components.
• If the holder falls off, please follow the instructions again to reinstall and use it.
• Please note that if the product is damaged due to user negligence,
it cannot be returned or refunded.
Winter precaution
• The vacuum disk can easily come off the glass due to
differences in temperature between inside and outside the
windscreen.
Summer precautions
• When the vacuum disk can easily come off the glass due to
difference in temperature between inside and outside of the
windscreen.
• Remove the vacuum disk and store it separately when parking for
a long period of time.
• The built-in battery may be damaged when kept under direct
sunlight in the car for a long period of time due to internal

• Longitude - The angular distance east or west on
the earth's surface, as measured in degrees from
the meridian of a particular point to the prime
meridian of Greenwich, England.
• Latitude - The angular distance, measured north of
south from the equator, of a point on the earth's
surface.
• Speed - The rate of movement, as expressed by

Troubleshooting
• If you want to operate this product properly, there should be the same
programs (Contained in LGE folder) and maps (Contained in LGE folder) in
the SD memory card (Built-in Memory) which are provided by LGE.
• Don't erase or modify the contents in LGE folder!
(It contains important data for Navigation and Photo viewer. It is going to be
out of order in case of misuse.)
• Don't delete inner data of the product by using ActiveSync.
(It contains important data for navigation and Photo viewer. It means it will be
out of order in case of misuse.)
Picture format
The Photo Viewer does not display an image when either the image exceeds
1.6 GB or if the image is saved as an invalid format. The "Load Failure" warning message is displayed when the image file is too large. The "Picture format
is not supported" warning message is displayed when the image file is not
saved in JPG, GIF, or BMP format.
• JPG : Image file size should be less than 1600 MP (megapixels).
• BMP : Image file size should be less than 500 MP (megapixels).
• GIF : Image file size should be less than 500 MP (megapixels).
Cannot identify the current location. (GPS not receiving)
GPS cannot be used indoors and must be connected to the power with ACC to
a vehicle in a location where the sky can be seen well.
When initially connecting the GPS, it usually takes about 10 minutes to operate
normally, but the connection speed can differ depending on the weather condition, and surrounding obstacles.
If the GPS connection is unstable for a long period of time, try the following.
• Check if the power is connected to the product.
• Check if the back of the GPS product is in a location where the sky can be
seen well.
• If there are high buildings or if you are under a tree, move to a location where
there aren’t any obstacles.
• Check the GPS receiving condition from the GPS menu.
74
Troubleshooting
Cannot hear the voice guide.
You can hear the voice guide when you select “SET UP.
But during actual driving, the voice guide is provided.
If the volume is too low, adjust the volume on the left unit.
Cannot see the map.
This is when you cannot see the map even when you have executed the
navigation menu.
This happens when the data within the memory is damaged. Delete all the
data within the memory and reinstall the data.
If the problem persists after the installation, contact the Customer Service
Center.
Map data and dangerous area information are not updated.
You must periodically update the map data.
Refer to the homepage for details on how to update the data.
The path guide can be different from the actual path.

Even though GPS is usually very accurate, it has an error range.
When GPS receiver is installed, there can be an error of about 5 to 15m. But
for newly constructed roads, the problem could be from the data update to the
map.

Troubleshooting
What is GPS?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system
made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S.
Department of Defense. GPS was originally intended for military applications,
but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.
GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.

Map matching
The GPS used by this Mobile Navigation System is susceptible to certain
errors. Their calculations may on occasion place you in a location on the map
where no road exists. In this situation, the processing system
understands that vehicles travel only on roads, and is able to correct your
position by adjusting it to a near road. This is called map matching.
With map matching.
With no map matching.
