1. Starting up
This chapter contains information about the following subjects:
1.1 Important information
1.2 Alternative installation of navigation software from a memory card
1.3 Further map material
1.4 Transferring map material to a memory card
1.5 Transferring installation files and map material to the internal memory
-5-
1.1 Important information
For safety reasons, the driver must not make entries whilst driving. The instructions issued
by the navigation system are recommendations. The road traffic regulations must be observed
in all cases.
Thermally insulated glass or windscreens with metallic coating reduce the GPS reception a
lot. Usually this type of coating is omitted at a special place behind which the navigation unit
can be fitted. If that is not the case, a commercially available GPS aerial has to be fitted outside,
e.g. on the roof of the vehicle.
1.2 Alternative installation of navigation software from a memory card
The software for your navigation system can also be directly installed from an appropriately prepared
memory card. Preinstalled software may have to be de-installed first (see device manual).
On first-time set-up you will be requested to install the navigation software. Please proceed as follows:
a. Carefully remove the memory card from the packaging. Please take care not to touch contacts or allow
them to become soiled.
b. Insert the memory card in the SD/MMC slot until it clicks into place.
c. Click OK to install the application.
Once all data has been copied to your navigation system, the main window will be displayed in which
you can now perform the navigation settings.
Note
Please take note that a valid GPS signal must be received and the time zone needs to be set
after the installation of the software, so that the correct arrival time can be calculated in future
route calculations.
1.3 Further map material
Your navigation system is already supplied ex works with a digitalised map of your country in its internal
memory. Further digitalised maps may be added to those in the internal memory. Depending on the
version, further digitalised maps will be featured on your CD. These maps may be immediately transferred
to a memory card whereby the use of an external card reader is recommended (see device manual).
Depending on the extent of the map material, memory cards with 256 MB,512 MB,1,024 MB or larger
are required.
-6-
Note
Please note that some of the devices do not include memory cards in the delivery. In these
units the installation and map files have already been loaded. The installation will run automatically.
Additional memory cards (MMC or SD cards) are stocked by specialist stores.
1.4 Transferring map material to a memory card
Transferring further map material to a memory card is best performed via your PC explorer. Please
proceed as follows:
a. Insert the CD with the required map material.
b. Open your workplace and select your CD drive.
c. Copy the file with the .psf extension from the directory of the region you require from the CD to the
directory MapRegions on your memory card.
You can transfer several files of map material to your memory card, depending on the size of the latter.
Please hereby ensure that there is sufficient storage space on your memory card.
If you have copied digitalised maps of several countries or country groups to your memory card, you
must select the required country map in the navigation application of your device.
1.5 Transferring installation files and map material to the internal
memory
Your device features an internal, non-volatile memory Contained in the \My Flash Disk folder. Via
®
ActiveSync you can use the Search option to display this and further folders. Manipulations to folders
and files can be performed as in an explorer.
The necessary folders must be created to make installation files and map material available to the device.
Create the INSTALL folder (\My Flash Disk\INSTALL) for the installation files. Store map material
in the MapRegions (\My Flash Disk\MapRegions) folder. On naming folders please observe the
writing forms specified above.
Should additional data be stored on your navigation device, please note that sufficient capacity must be
available on transferring data. If this is not the case, remove files that are not required.
Note
®
The navigation system must be linked to the computer via ActiveSync (see device manual)
for data transfer.
