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 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/DVD with the required map material.
b. Open your workplace and select your CD/DVD drive.
-6-
c. Copy the file with the .psf extension from the directory of the region you require from the CD/DVD
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.
1.4 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. You
can transfer the navigation software onto your memory card and/or device again and then install the
software on the navigation system. To do so, carry out the following steps:
a. Connect the navigation system to your PC.
b. The necessary folders must be created to make installation files and map material available to the
device. Create the \My Flash Disk\INSTALL folder for the installation files. Store map material
in the \My Flash Disk\MapRegions folder. On naming folders please observe the writing forms
specified above.
c. To transfer the installation files, copy all files from the \Installation folder on the CD/DVD into
the \My Flash Disk\Installation folder on the device.
d. To transfer the map data, copy all files you have selected with the ending .psf from the \MapRegions
folder on the CD/DVD into the \My Flash Disk\MapRegions folder on the device.
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
®
You will not need the ActiveSync communications software, if you are a user of the Windows
TM
Vista operating system. The system files necessary for the simple data transfer are already
integrated into your Vista operating system at delivery. Please connect your device to your
PC with the help of the USB synchronization cable. The necessary drivers will be installed
automatically, after the new device has been found. Your new device will be listed under the
Portable Devices point in the Windows Explorer overview, following a successful installation.
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.
1.5 Transferring points of interest (POI) files
In order to transfer POI files to your navigation system, please carry out the following steps:
-7-
a. Insert the CD/DVD with the POI data files.
b. Open your workplace and select your CD/DVD drive.
c. Copy the POI files you want ending in .psf from the \POI folder on the CD/DVD into the \MapRegions folder on your memory card.
Note
You can also transfer the special destination files directly into the
\My Flash Disk\MapRegions folder on your device. To do so, connect the device to your
PC.
1.6 Transferring the voice recognition files
In order to transfer voice recognition data to your navigation system, please carry out the following steps:
a. Insert the CD/DVD with the voice recognition data.
b. Open your workplace and select your CD/DVD drive.

Resolution: 480 x 272 pixels
Selecting a search category (points of interest)
Enter town or select country
Select one of the last chosen destinations
Enter street name or house number
Enter the postcode
Select a destination from the favourites
Note
You can search for a place using the postcode and/or the town/city. In order to further specify
the search you can enter the street and house number. If it is possible to take the house
number into consideration when calculating the route, this will be indicated in the
Detailed informationen view. You can also reach the town centre without giving a street name,
or reach the middle of a street without giving a house number.
When searching for a special place (e.g. a petrol station), entering the name will allow a more
detailed search.
- 14 -
To enter a destination, press ZIP or Town. A keyboard screen will then appear. Now use the keyboard
to enter the address of your destination. The navigation software automatically completes the address
when searching for a destination. After entering just a few characters, you will be shown the three best
results along with the list of all possible results. If the place you are looking for does not appear on the
list, you may have to enter more detailed information for the address.
Note
You can also follow your current position on the map without entering a destination. If available,
the name of the street you are currently on will be displayed.
2.3.2 Destination entry using the voice command function
Destination entry using the voice command function is currently available for the following countries:
■
Germany
■
Great Britain
■
France
For entering a destination, i.e. at least a postcode or place and a street and house number, you can use
the voice command function instead of the keyboard. To access this, you will find a Push-to-Talk button
on the bottom right of the keyboard screen.
Press this button and wait until you hear the tone. Say the place name clearly.
Note
When using the voice command function, avoid loud background noise such as the radio or
ventilation. Strong dialects, speaking too clearly or too loudly may also interfere with the voice
command function. Try to speak naturally! Please always enter the destination in the language
of the country. This can lead to voice recognition being affected by foreign accents.
After the voice command, a list of options will be displayed. If your destination does not appear on this
list, you can repeat the voice command. Press the Search for other results button to do this.
Note
If your destination still does not appear on the list of options even after the voice command
has been repeated several times, please enter the destination using the keyboard.
If your destination appears on the list, select the destination by pressing it. The voice command function
will then automatically be activated to allow you to enter the street name. Enter the street name and the
house number using the process described above.
- 15 -
After selecting a place or street name from the list of options, another list may open if the place or street
matches multiple results. Select your destination from this list.
Note
Please say the house number as a whole number (e.g. 46 must be said forty-six).
When entering the postcode at the beginning of the voice command process, say the whole postcode
clearly as series of individual numbers (e.g. 91058 must be said nine one zero five eight). A list of options
will then appear displaying possible postcodes. Once you have selected your postcode, another list will
appear displaying postcodes alongside place names. After selecting the destination, you can enter the
street name and house number using the process described above.
Note
You can select either the town centre or middle of street using the process described below.
To the town centre:
Enter your destination using the voice command function. When asked for the street name,
say Town centre or To town centre.
To the middle of the street:
Enter the street name using the voice command function. When asked for the house number,
say Middle of the street or To the middle of the street.
2.3.3 Points of interest
You can use the search category to determine the type of destination. By default, the program will search
for the road/street of the entered address. But you can also select a different category and search for
special places such as hotels, airports or petrol stations in a certain town.
If you own a device with a Bluetooth function and have the telephone number of your selected destination,
you can dial this number using the Detailed information screen.
Note
You can find additional hotel information under the hotel.de special destination search category
and reserve a hotel easily and cheaply over the hotel.de booking hotline shown.
2.3.4 Last locations
The last used destination locations are saved in chronological sequence and can be reactivated as
destination using this option. The last three can be selected directly from the address field, all other
previous locations can be accessed via Last locations.

You can use this function to have current traffic information displayed in a list. This will show first the
traffic reports affecting your route (sorted by distance) and then the events not situated along your route
(in alphabetical order).
If you select an entry from the list, the detailed view of this traffic update will appear. If this
traffic disruption is on your route the detailed view will indicate how far away it is. If the traffic
disruption will affect your journey time (congestion, slow-moving traffic) the detailed view will
also indicate the estimated time lost.
If the traffic hold-ups are not along the precalculated route, the symbols are shown in grey.
- 22 -
In the traffic warning view you will be shown the distance to the traffic hold-up affecting your route and
the likely delay in travelling time and you will be given the option to ask for an alternative route to be
calculated.
If you don't want to ask for a calculation of an alternative route you can decline and the warning symbol
will disappear from the map.
If you want to ask for an alternative route to be calculated, the navigation software will calculate a route
which tries to bypass the traffic hold-up.
If it is not possible to calculate an alternative route, the warning will disappear from the map, but you
can select the traffic hold-up affecting your route once again in the list view and then ask again for an
alternative route to be calculated in the traffic warning view.
2.5.4 Compass
In the compass you can read the speed, the current longitude and latitude as well as the GPS reception
quality (HDOP value). The direction of travel is displayed reliably from a speed of approximately 3 mph.
In addition, after a GPS signal has been received once the GPS time will be displayed in Greenwich
Mean Time (GMT).
2.5.5 Trip info
In this option you can view information on your current route, such as average speed, total journey time
elapsed or total distance covered.
Note
Under Tripinfo you can set whether the route travelled is automatically recorded as a GPS
track in the background after route calculation.
The GPS track for this route is either saved in the UserTracks folder on the storage card,
or the MyFlashDisk\UserTracks folder directly on the device, if no storage card is available
(depends on device).
If you have activated Record GPS track, the route will automatically stop recording when information is reset under Tripinfo.
Use the GoPal Assistant to transfer any GPS tracks you have recorded onto the PC and
TM
convert them to Google Earth-compatible KML file format.

2.6.7 Search for TMC stations.
Here a station is searched for automatically. If reception quality deteriorates a new
station is immediately searched for.
Using manual station search you can permanently set a TMC station. If the TMC
signal deteriorates, a new station is not automatically searched for.
Here you can search for a TMC station in 100 KHz increments.
2.6.8 Congestion by-pass
You can specify in this view whether or not you want to be automatically directed away from
congestion. The navigation software will then automatically inform you in the background
using the traffic information available of alternative routes away from any traffic disruptions
on your route that will affect your journey time.
With manual congestion by-pass a warning symbol in the map view will alert you to the nearest
traffic disruption on your route that will affect your journey time.
Clicking on the warning symbol will take you to the traffic warning view where you
can select whether or not an alternative route is to be calculated.
If you selected No congestion by-pass the latest traffic updates will not be taken into account
