Important Message
IMPORTANT MESSAGE CONCERNING THE USE OF MAPKING BY VEHICLE DRIVER
TO ENSURE SAFETY DRIVING, WE STRONGLY ADVISE THAT A DRIVER SHOULD NOT
OPERATE MAPKING WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE SIMULTANEOULSY. A DRIVER
SHOULD NEVER FOCUS HIS OR HER ATTENTION ON THE MAPKING DISPLAY WHILE
DRIVING.
In case MapKing needs to be used inside a vehicle, we suggest that it should be operated by a
passenger other than the driver or the driver should stop the vehicle at a convenient spot
before starting to use MapKing.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE CONCERNING ROUTE PLANNING
The route planning function of MapKing is ONLY meant to be and should ONLY be used as a
crude reference. IT SHOULD NEVER BE USED TO DETERMINE ACTUAL DRIVING
DIRECTIONS. The route planning function of MapKing is subject to the following limitations:
y
Whilst we have taken great care and endeavors in developing the product, we CANNOT
guarantee that the road network data and routing calculations of MapKing are free of
any omission or defect.
y
The road network and traffic conditions in the real world are ever changing; MapKing
being a pre-packaged product cannot reflect all these changes on a constant basis.
y
Road network parameters specifically required for route planning, like one-way traffic
indicator or turn restrictions at street crossing, are difficult or almost impossible to obtain
for China or some other Asian countries. The lack of these data would significantly affect
the performance of route planning.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE CONCERNING GPS TRACKING
The GPS tracking function of MapKing works on GPS satellite signals broadcasted for civilian
use. It is subject to inherent signal deviations and environmental interferences caused by
surroundings and bad weather. We cannot guarantee nor specify a precise level of accuracy for
the GPS positioning data displayed by MapKing. It should also be noted that the Unites States
Department of Defence, who builds and operates the GPS system, is free to turn off or
down-grade the civilian signals of GPS during rare occasions like regional military conflict.
Although MapKing should work with most GPS receivers on NMEA0183 signal output format
regardless of their brand name or model; we cannot guarantee that MapKing integrates
flawlessly with ALL GPS receivers available in the market.

4 Route Planning
IMPORTANT MESSAGE CONCERNING ROUTE PLANNING
The route planning function of MapKing™ is ONLY meant to be and should ONLY be used as a
crude reference. IT SHOULD NEVER BE USED TO DETERMINE ACTUAL DRIVING
DIRECTIONS. The Route Planning function of MapKing™ is subject to the following limitations:
y
Whilst we have taken great care and endeavours in developing the product, we
CANNOT guarantee that the road network data and routing calculations of MapKing™
are free of any omission or defect.
y
The road network and traffic conditions in the real world are ever changing, MapKing™
being a pre-packaged product cannot reflect all these changes on a constant basis.
y
Road network parameters specifically required for route planning, like one-way traffic
indicator or turn restrictions at street crossing, are difficult or almost impossible to obtain
for China or some other Asian countries. The lack of these data would significantly affect
the performance of route planning.
4.1 Routing Planning
4.1.1 Create Start Point/ Midway Point/ Destination
To initiate route planning, at least 2 routing
points (Start, End) must be assigned.
Tap-and-hold at the precise spot and select
‘Start’/ ‘End’ to add a routing point. It should
be noted that route planning is calculated
from the embedded road network data.
Accordingly, the routing points should be
placed either on top of or very close to the
street lines.
《Figure4-1-1a》Tap-and-hold on main map
There are 3 ways to setup routing point:
1.
Tap-and-hold on main map.
2.
Tap-and-hold in ‘My Favorite’ page.
3.
Tap-and-hold from search result.

The parameter of ‘Option’ is as below:
Default: This option uses the recommended option to calculate route.
Motorway preferred: Assigns high priority to expressways, highways and freeways and avoid
secondary roads and streets.
Motorway avoided: Avoids expressways, highways and freeways.
Shortest route: This option ignores road class parameters and calculates routes purely on
length of road segments, but this is rarely used since the shortest route in many cases does not
mean the fastest route.

and End have been created, with the routing result you may simulate the course of the planned
route and have further adjustment.

5 GPS Positioning
IMPORTANT MESSAGE CONCERNING GPS TRACKING
The GPS tracking function of MapKing™ works on GPS satellite signals broadcasted for
civilian use. It is subject to inherent signal deviations and environmental interferences caused
by surroundings and bad weather. We cannot guarantee nor specify a precise level of accuracy
for the GPS positioning data displayed by MapKing™. It should also be noted that the Unites
States Department of Defence, who builds and operates the GPS system, is free to turn off or
down-grade the civilian signals of GPS during rare occasions like regional military conflict.
Although MapKing™ should work with most GPS receivers on NMEA0183 signal output format
regardless of their brand name or model; we cannot guarantee that MapKing™ integrates
flawlessly with ALL GPS receivers available in the market.
Please read the package for product information for product support GPS. In this chapter we
will discuss how to setup and operate the GPS functions, and the functions provides by
MapKing™ R12 with GPS.
5.1 About GPS
GPS (Global Positioning System) is developed and maintained by the US Defence Department.
The system was initially deployed for military use but was later open for civilian navigation. The
system comprises of more than 24 satellites on different orbits. The GPS receiver on the
ground picks up signals from at least three satellites and calculates its real time position by a
set of mathematical formulas generally known as ‘triangulation’.
GPS receivers must maintain line-of-sight with the satellites. GPS will not work indoor and its
accuracy tends to degrade significantly when the receiver is located under sheltered area or
near high-rise building structure or terrain.
5.2 GPS Startup
5.2.1 GPS Setup
GPS receiver needs to establish clear line of sight to receive signals from satellites orbiting in
the space. If the receiver is placed inside a vehicle or vessel, an extended antenna is normally
required to pick up signals beyond the enclosed area of the vehicle or vessel. Please note that
various types of I/O interface exist among different types of pocket PC (even for the same
brand), you should ensure that the output interface of the receiver is compatible with your
pocket PC. Consult the technical specifications or device dealer of your receiver or pocket PC if
you are in doubt about compatibility.

Device. Please follow the manufacturer instructions and be reminded to press ‘Connect’ of
GPS device before you start using GPS.
