1_Introduction
Thank you for choosing the ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 to accompany you and help you during your travels.
The ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 is ergonomically designed to be as intuitive as possible. This manual nevertheless
contains precise instructions, together with tips and advice, for each of the many functions that the device offers.
They are intended to help you to get the best out of your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 device.
This PND (Personal Navigation Device) is fitted with a touch screen for better ergonomics.
The package you have purchased contains:
• 1 ViaMichelin Navigation X-970
• 2 Car mounting systems for windshield or dashboard use
• 1 Cigarette lighter cable
• 1 USB cable
• 1 Power adapter
• 1 SD card with USA and Canada already loaded
• 1 ViaMichelin Navigation DVD-ROM
• 1 Installation diagram
• QuickStart manual
Before installing the ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 mobile device in your car, we recommend that you familiarize
yourself with how the system operates.
When you first operate your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970, please connect it to the cigarette lighter socket or to
your (switched on) PC using the USB cable or the power adapter supplied with your unit for about four hours. You
may notice that the indicator light in the top left-hand corner of your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 changes color
according to the battery power level:
• Indicator Light is Red: the ViaMichelin PND is charging or run down.
• Indicator Light is Green: the ViaMichelin PND is charged.
The ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 has a battery life of approximately 3 hours. This battery life depends on how the
device is used. For example the sound volume and screen brightness as well as using the “hands-free” function on
your PND may considerably reduce this battery life.
You will find other helpful information and updates to this manual on the dedicated Navigation website:
http://www.ViaMichelin.us/support970.php > GPS Navigation > Support

Disconnect the power adapter first before disconnecting the PND cable.
2.2 Installing the hardware in a vehicle
• To benefit from better mounting if necessary, unscrew the suction pad slightly from the support.
• Install the mounting system on the windsheild by applying pressure to the suction pad and then turning the screw
clockwise.
• Start your vehicle.
• Connect the cigarette-lighter cable to your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 mounting system (socket on the righthand side) and then to your vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket.
• Mount your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 by sliding it onto the mounting system as shown on the installation
diagram provided.
• Turn on your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 and plan your journey.
FOR YOUR SAFETY:
- Make sure you position the mounting system in a place where it will not obstruct visibility or
interfere with driving the vehicle.
- Make sure you position the cigarette lighter cable in a place where it will not obstruct visibility or
interfere with driving the vehicle.
- Make sure you plan your destination when the vehicle is stationary. We strongly recommend that
you not operate the device while driving.
2.3 Installing the software pre-recorded on the SD card
ViaMichelin Navigation is a “Plug & Drive” solution: simply install the SD memory card provided on the left side of your
PND. The card must be fully inserted face up in the direction of the blue arrow as shown in the illustration below:
To remove the SD card from the device, press on the side of the SD card and release. The SD card will then be
ejected from the device.
Then follow the installation instructions displayed on your screen:
• Select the language for the menus
• Configure keyboard
• Select the voice guidance language
When choosing the voice guidance language, you may select a traditional pre-recorded voice (6 languages
available: American English, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish) or voice synthesis
(American English),which will guide you with instructions concerning road names, directions, road signs
• Voice guidance settings
• Select the distance unit
• Select map display
• Time display format
• Set the time
8
• To select the setting you want, click on the arrows to the left or right of the different choices then click
on the arrow at the bottom of the screen to move to the next setting or go back to the previous setting
to modify it. After installing the software on your PND you can change the selected settings from the different
menus in the “Settings” menu.
Once the SD card programs are installed you reach the legal disclaimer screen. After clicking the “I Accept” button
you reach the Main Menu. The following chapters explain how to use it:
Your ViaMichelin X-970 Navigation is now ready to guide you!
Comments:
• If you switch on your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 without first inserting an SD card, a demonstration
mode will run automatically after 90 seconds. To stop the demonstration, simply insert the supplied SD card
into the slot provided. You will then be able to start using your product.
• Make sure that your SD card is not locked: safety in the “lock” position, this may impair the operation of
the ViaMichelin Navigation software. (In this position, the contents of your SD card are protected but the
software will not be able to save settings required for the software to run properly).
• Use only the SD card supplied with your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970. Do not use it in other devices (digital
cameras, PDA, MP3, etc.).
• Do not change its content without using the ViaMichelin C
“ ontent Manager” program.
You can then install the PC application “Content Manager” which will allow you not only to use the advanced
functions provided by ViaMichelin Navigation X-970, such as the new “My ViaMichelin” to transfer your personal
data to your mobile device directly from the ViaMichelin web site: http://www.ViaMichelin.com to export points
of interest (POI) and to manage the map sets, but also to restore the initial content of your SD card if necessary (see
Chapter 13 – Content Manager).

2.4 Activating the GPS
• After connecting your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 and installing the software on the SD card, go to the Main
Menu, and click Settings / Navigation / GPS. This will take you directly to the page presenting GPS reception:
When using your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 for the first time, we recommend you to do so in an open space in
order to ensure the best possible satellite reception. Activating the GPS system for the first time can take several
minutes, depending on the surroundings and the quality of the GPS signals.
Similarly, when setting off on a calculated route, you need to start moving so that the system can determine the
direction and speed of the vehicle and suggest a route corresponding to your traffic direction.
Detailed instructions for installing and using the GPS are given in Chapter 6.2.2 of this manual.

• grey the device is receiving satellite signals but cannot use them to establish your position.
• green the device is using the satellite signals to calculate your position.
• The numbers under the vertical bars give the number of the American satellite.
Coordinates:
longitude and latitude calculated by the system.
Direction arrow: shows the direction of travel between 2 position calculations by the GPS.
• Click on “Back” to return to the previous screen.
Comment:
The ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 is fitted with an SiRF Star III type GPS, the latest generation of GPS, which
works even in poor reception conditions.
After selecting a destination and before the navigation instructions show your route, the GPS must have three
pieces of information to calculate the route: the position, direction of travel and speed. You may consult the GPS
screen on your mobile device to follow the GPS signal acquisition.
The time the GPS takes to acquire this information varies depending on how much time has elapsed since the
device was last used:
• your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 has not been switched on for more than 24 hours (“cold start”): in this
case the time needed to acquire satellite signals may be quite long (10-15 minutes), and the message “Satellite
detection. This may take several minutes” is displayed on the navigation screen.
• your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 has not been switched on for more than 4 hours (“warm start”): GPS reception
may take several minutes (5 minutes) and the message “Satellite signal acquisition in progress” is displayed on
the navigation screen.
• you switch on your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 after switching it off a few minutes ago (“hot start”): satellite
reception is almost immediate and navigation can continue.
GPS acquisition time also varies depending on the surroundings:
• athermic windscreens:
if your vehicle is equipped with an athermic windscreen, GPS reception may be
slower.
• car park/tunnel/building: satellite signals do not travel through walls, so you will not receive a GPS signal if your
device is in a building, car park, tunnel, etc.
• urban “canyoning”:
reception will be slower in urban areas if buildings are high, streets narrow or there
are a lot of trees. Go to an open space to improve reception.
• weather conditions:
in poor weather (heavy snow, etc.), GPS reception may take slightly longer.
When using ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 for the first time, we advise you to do so in an open space in order to
ensure the best possible satellite reception. Activating the GPS system for the first time can take several minutes,
depending on the surroundings and the quality of the GPS signals.

The default speeds in the “Speed warning ” table are:
Highways
130 km/h
80 Mph
Expressways
110 km/h
70 Mph
Roads
90 km/h
55 Mph
Towns
50 km/h
30 Mph
The range of speed limit settings for the type of road is between 30 kph and 180 kph or between 25 mph and 110mph.
This function takes account of the type of road given in the map database without adding more detail about the
surroundings or special features of a section.
For example:
A highway may be limited to 55 mph on some sections instead of 70 mph by default. When the map database
identifies an “expressway” it will not indicate the section limited to 55 mph. A “road”, on the other hand, may have
the same speed limit as an expressway in some places. The Speed Warner will then indicate excess speed although
the traffic regulations authorize this speed.
“Speed warning ” should therefore be used for information, but as with all navigation information supplied by your

9_The ViaMichelin POIs
ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 includes an exclusive collection of thousands of points of interest taken from the
Michelin Green Guide – and a selection of practical addresses (food stores, accommodation, auto service,etc.). An
exclusive feature of the POIs (Points Of Interest) extracted from the Michelin Green guide and of the practical POIs,
is that they include a full description and can be selected using a multikey search process.This means that your
ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 offers you all the comprehensiveness of a standard guidebook, an essential addition
to your navigation system.
9.1 How To Look Up a POI Description
Your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 system offers you several thousand POIs, each with a “Description”. Depending
on the information available, this description can cover one or more pages. The information provided is then
grouped into criteria groups based on the category that the POI belongs to:
• The first page contains the name of the POI, its category, its address, telephone number and in some cases
Internet addresses (web site and e-mail) or simply its description. If a phone is connected to your device, simply
click on the number to call the selected POI automatically.
50
• Click the direction arrows:
– Left
to view the previous POI.
– Down to continue viewing the description of the POI.
– Right to view the next POI.
• Click “POI Options”.
You can then:
Telephone
to call the telephone number on the POI file. If there is no telephone number, this option will not
be accessible and will be shaded (for more information, see paragraph 6.3).
Save
to make the selected POI a favorite in “My Favorites” or “My POIs” (for more information, see
paragraph 5.2).
Navigate to
to draw up a route to the POI you selected (for more information, see paragraph 3.1.2).
Center on Mapto center the map on the selected POI (for more information, see paragraph 4.2.1.5).

10_Notes and Tips
This paragraph contains additional information and tips to help you get the best out of your ViaMichelin Navigation
X-970 system:
• As you enter letters in a search screen, the choice is restricted automatically. Only existing letters or figures are
displayed and enabled. As soon as the criterion you want appears in the top bar, you can click it to select
it.
• To delete a letter, click the left arrow at the bottom right of the screen.
• To find a town quickly, you can enter a few letters of the town’s name. For example, when you enterPHIL”
“
the
search engine displays “Philadelphia”, “SAN FRA” displays “San Francisco”.
• To find a street quickly, you can enter a few letters of the street name you want; for example, if you enter
“
MADI”
the
search engine displays “Madison Avenue”, while “AVE” will bring up “Avenue of the Americas”.
• When preparing a route, some functions are available when you click a place icon. For example:
– Move up lets you switch a place to the previous stage of the route. This means the arrival point can become the
departure point or a stage can be moved to the previous position or become the departure point in the journey to
be (re)calculated in a single click.
– Move down lets you switch a place to the next stage of the route. This lets you change the departure point
to the arrival point or move a stage to the next position or change it to the arrival point in the journey to be
(re)calculated in a single click.
• The calculated route is displayed on the map as a green line highlighting the roads taken.
• When your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 is connected and is not used for a certain time, the software will
automatically start up free navigation. Click the “Back” button to return to the initial screen.
• If you start the search without entering the POI by clicking Display
“
All”, the system will list all the POIs it knows.
• When searching for a POI or a saved address, the system presents the POIs in descending order of distance – in a
straight line - from the specified place.
• Click in the space on the top bar to zoom several levels in or out on the map.
• Click the cursor in the top bar and move it to the zoom level you want.
• Click in the screen and move the map in the direction you want to display the area you are interested in.
• If the coordinates show a point a long way from a road, the message The
“ place selected must be less than 15
miles from a road” appears. Click “OK” to return to the previous screen and choose an arrival point or departure
point nearer a road.
• If several saved addresses or POIs are very close together, you will need to zoom in to separate them.
• The history only contains the last 15 destinations used. It is automatically updated: each new destination replaces
the oldest. You can therefore not delete the history as it updates progressively with new routes.
• When the location marker is centered on a saved address, the Delete”
“
button is automatically displayed at the
bottom left of the screen. If you click on this button, the system displays the message
Are
“ you sure you want to
delete this address?”. Click “Yes” to delete the saved address.
• In navigation, displaying a very large number of POIs may call on the device’s resources and reduce the smoothness
of the dynamic display. You are therefore recommended to display only the POIs you need for the route calculated.
52
• The total calculated distance and time for the journey are given at the beginning of the driving directions.
• By clicking the up and down arrows, you can scroll through the driving directions. The map display is then
automatically centered on the change of direction given in the driving directions.
• If the GPS position is outside the limits of the map installed in the system, the GPS cross may appear in the middle of
a blank screen. By zooming out, you can then locate the GPS position in relation to the maps installed in the system.
• When “Center on GPS position” is selected, the L
“ ocation Marker Option” function is no longer enabled. You need
to move the location marker to be able to access the function again.
•
•
•
•
•
The position established by the GPS can be affected by several factors:
the reception quality of the American satellites signals;
the surroundings (buildings, tunnel, high-voltage cables, etc.);
battery power levels in the ViaMichelin Navigation X-970;
the accuracy of the GPS position calculation (± 15 m);etc.
• To prolong battery life, we advise you to leave your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 system connected to a power
source or to recharge it after use. Similarly, a volume and screen brightness reduction favors longer battery life.
• The “Shortest” routes take the roads in the database that are closest to the straight line between the departure point
and the arrival point.
• The “Quickest” routes take the roads that give you a shorter driving time than the Shortest”
“
route. In Navigation
mode, the software only uses this type of calculation. Moreover, during short journeys, the software uses the table of
average speed settings for the 6 types of roads programmed in the map database when calculating theQuickest”
“
route. Therefore, you can favor some types of road by reducing the average speeds of others or by increasing the speed
of the type to favor. However, for longer journeys (> 62 mi approximately), the program calculates the route based
on the primary network (highways and similar roads); the secondary network is only used to get from the departure
point to the primary road and from the primary network to the arrival point.
• In Free Navigation, only 2D display is available.
• When there are several stages in a route, you can click Go
“ to Next Stage” to tell the system to recalculate anew
route between the GPS position and the next stage. This means you can plan a route to pass near town,
a
without
leaving the main roads.
• In free navigation the navigation map can be displayed facing north; the position arrow will follow the movements
of the road relative to a fixed direction, or relative to the navigation axis to maintain the direction taken facing the
top of the screen. To change this setting during navigation, at the bottom of the screen clickNavigation
“
Actions”,
then “Display”. You can then choose between Orient
“
Northwards” or “Orient in the vehicle’s direction”.
• If the PC does not detect your ViaMichelin Navigation X-970, connect your USB cable to another USB port and
check whether other PDA devices such as a Pocket PC PDA or peripherals such as a printer or a scanner that could
interfere with communication between the ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 and your PC are connected to the USB
ports. In this case, please disconnect them while installing your software.
• You will find other information to help you get the best out of your ViaMichelin Navigation on the ViaMichelin web site:

15_What to do if…
In this table, we suggest a few answers to frequently asked questions:
How can I perform a “partial” or
“soft reset”?
A partial - or soft reset - restarts your ViaMichelin Navigation X970 if the application crashes.
To perform a soft reset, press the “Reset” point on the back of your
ViaMichelin Navigation X-970 (with an opened out paperclip, for
example).
The soft reset closes the application and restarts the ViaMichelin
Navigation software.
Comment:
Only procedures running at the time of the reset may be lost (e.g.
the current route).
How do I perform a “full” or
“hard reset”?
A full - or hard reset - restores your ViaMichelin Navigation
X-970 to its initial conditions.
After this operation, you will need to reinstall the software.
To perform a hard reset:
- connect your device to the cigarette-lighter cable, the USB cable
or a power cord.
- remove the SD card from the PND.
- perform a reset by pressing the “Reset” at the back of the device
then, just after doing so, press the ON/OFF button and keep it
pressed, without the card.
- after a few seconds a message and a countdown appear on the
screen. Keep the ON/OFF button pressed down until the end of
the countdown.
- put the SD card back into the PND and reinstall the ViaMichelin
Navigation program.
The device does not switch on
when I press the “ON/OFF”
button:
Connect your device to the cigarette lighter cable or power
adapter for at least 4 hours to fully recharge your PND. If the
charge indicator diode does not switch on after several hours of
recharging and the diode does not switch to green, please contact
your reseller to have your device checked.
During navigation, the voice
messages are in another language:
In the Main Menu, go to Options > General > Language and
select the Voice Guidance language you want.
How do I update my POIs?
Use POI Manager to download and add your POI files from the
ViaMichelin web site:
http://www.ViaMichelin.com
What is the difference between
the Shortest and the Quickest
route?
When preparing a route, it is possible to specify that the system
should calculate the journey on the basis of the criterion “Quickest
route” or “Shortest route”.
The “Shortest route” criterion selects the most direct road
journey between the points of departure and arrival.
The “Quickest route” calculates the shortest route on roads
which have the highest average speeds.
