moving direction by the compass. Once you stop advancing, the arrow will return
to North after 2-3 seconds. The dot in the ring shows the reference orientation of
next waypoint or destination.
It displays the information about your current location, including longitude,
latitude, COG, SOG ,etc, you can use the UP/ DOWN keypads to choose the

hours or 24 hours. Then you need to set UTC (Universal Time Coordinate). In another word, if your present
location is in +8 time zone, and you are using +8 time zone clock, you have to choose +8 hours. If you are in +8
time zone but using +6 time zone clock, you’d better choose +6 hours. If you choose 0 hour, that is exactly UTC

• For Hazard alarm, If you select 0.2 mile, the unit will alarm automatically when you get into the circle, which is
an area with the center of this Hazard and the radius of 0.2 miles. This function will only be available when the
waypoint is within the route or track and the unit is set to navigation status.
Other
There are two items you can set:Light Time,Contrast.

waypoint alarm and 0.2 mile for Destination alarm, the unit will work within 0.2 mile away from the each
waypoint.

Definitions
Altitude: Distance above mean sea level.
BRG: The compass direction from current position to next waypoint
or the destination.
COG: Course over ground. Your direction of movement relative to a
ground position.
Coordinate: A set of numbers that describes your location on or
above the earth.
Course:
GPS uses “Course” to define the movement direction of
receiver on the globe surface instead of navigation direction.
Datum:
A math model designed to fit part of the earth’s surface.
Latitude and longitude lines on a paper map are referenced to a
specific map datum. The map datum for a GPS receiver needs to match
the datum listed on the corresponding paper map.
Distance:
The linear length from current position to named
waypoint or between two waypoints along a route.
DTD: Distance to Destination
DTW: Distance to the next Waypoint
Goto:
A single leg route with the present position being the
start of the route and a defined waypoint as the destination. You can
use this function when you want to go directly to one of the waypoints
saved in the memory. Select “Go to”, and then find out the waypoint
you want. Confirm your selection and it starts navigation in this mode.
Latitude:
The angular distance north or south of the equator
measured by lines encircling the earth parallel to the equator in degrees
from 0° to 90°.
Leg:
A segment of a route that has a staring (From)
waypoint and a destination(To) waypoint. A route may consist of one
or more legs. For example, a route from Waypoint A to Waypoint B, to
Waypoint C and to Waypoint D, has totally three legs from A to B, and
from B to C, and from C to D.
Longitude: The angular distance east or west of the prime meridian
(Greenwich meridian) as measured by lines perpendicular to thee
parallels and converging at the poles from 0° to 180°.
Parallel Channel Receiver: A continuous tracking receiver using
multiple receiver circuits to track satellites simultaneously.
Position:
Latitude and longitude, and altitude.

Definitions
Route:
A route consists of start point, end point and in-between waypoints. A single
route is a kind of simple route only having start point and end point, in
another word it is a “Goto” route. Route can also be made up of several legs
from one waypoint reaching up to 20 other different waypoints.
SOG:
Speed over ground. The actual speed the GPS_DESIGNER is moving over
the ground. This may differ from airspeed or nautical speed due to such
things as sea conditions or head winds.
Speed: The GPS receiver uses instantaneous speed to indicate practical moving
speed.
TRP:
Tracked route.
True North: The direction of the North Pole from your current position. Magnetic
compasses are slightly incorrect due to effects of the Earth’s magnetic field
while GPS units are more accurate for magnetic influences.
Waypoint: A permanently stored and named position in the GPS_DESIGNER’s
memory.
XTE: Cross-Track Error.

Troubleshooting
1. The screen is blank after you press the POWER keypad.
•
Wrong batteries installation or no enough power. Check to insure that the batteries are installed
correctly and that the battery terminals are clean. Or replace the batteries.
•
You may did not make valid operations(press is too light to start GPS_DESIGNER). Please
press POWER key again till the unit responses and hear a sound “B” and see the welcome
page.
•
If you hear a sound “B”, then the GPS_DESIGNER is already turned on. You need to adjust
screen contrast until you can recognize the words on the screen.
Please take a reference in page 3 on “ Turning the GPS_DESIGNER on”.
2. Battery choices
You can use alkaline battery or rechargeable battery in GPS_DESIGNER. But if you use rechargeable
battery, the GPS_DESIGNER can not show you the correct information on the batteries condition.
3. Unavailability of satellite signals for long time
•
•
•
Make sure you are operating the GPS_DESIGNER outdoors, not in a house or a covered
building.
Ensure the sky is clear and open since it will influence the satellite signals reception.
Check your surroundings, there may be some electric or magnetic field around you or the
GPS_DESIGNER which can interfere the normal work of GPS_DESIGNER, such as wireless
radio station, radio tower or high-voltage wires and cables, and etc.
4. The GPS_DESIGNER has water outside and inside
Wipe down the water outside of the GPS_DESIGNER with clean clothing. Put it in a windy place
without direct sunshine and dry the inside. Then try to turn it on again to see if it works well. If it is still
not good, please contact local maintenance agency. Never try to open the GPS_DESIGNER by yourself.
5. Though in open area with clear sky, the GPS_DESIGNER can not track satellite.
•
•
It’s most because the GPS_DESIGNER had worked indoor for long time and been brought
outdoor directly. Please turn off the GPS_DESIGNER outdoor and restart it.
The GPS_DESIGNER is damaged. Please contact local dealer or supplier.
6. The GPS_DESIGNER dropped or collided
Check the appearance completeness of the GPS_DESIGNER. Contact the local maintenance agency if
you find the GPS_DESIGNER does not work well.

Syymbols & Prompts
Symbols
In the GPS_DESIGNER, you can use 28 symbols to name your waypoints
( see them in the right part of the page).
Prompts
•
Maximum 30 routes can be saved!
The GPS_DESIGNER can memorize maximum 30 routes, 10
tracks and 1000 waypoints. If you want to save more, you must
delete some and spare space in the unit.
•
Deletion is invalid!
When a waypoint or a track or a route is in navigation, you can
not delete them.
•
No route can be used!
There is no route in the memory at all.
•
Fail to delete waypoint, it is used by Goto!
When a waypoint is used in Goto navigation, you can not delete
or edit it.
•
Fail to edit waypoint, it is in use!
The same as above.
•
Waypoint is wrong, it can not be saved!
For a valid waypoint, its longitude covers from 0º to180º, and
latitude from 0º to90º. Any waypoint defined out of this range is
wrong or invalid.
•
Low Battery! It will shutdown automatically later.
When the batteries are too weak to support operation, the unit will
pop up this prompt.
•
In dangerous zone!
Once you get into the area you set up as dangerous place, the
GPS_DESIGNER will alarm you as soon as possible.
•
The track is unable to navigate.
For GPS receiver, it can not identify position change within 25 meter range.
