Getting Started with Navigation
Precautions for Safe driving
Navigation use restrictions
Please observe and comply with local traffic rules and regulations.
- For your safety, some features cannot be operated while driving. Features that cannot be operated will be disabled.
- The route displayed for destination guidance is a reference and the route guidance will take you to the vicinity of your destination. The highlighted route is not always the shortest distance, the least congested, and in some cases might, not be the fastest route.
- Road, name, and POI information may not always been completely updated. Some places may not include up to date information.
- The car position mark does not always indicate your exact location. This system uses GPS information, various sensors, and road map data to display the current position. However, errors in displaying your location may occur if the satellite is transmitting inaccurate signals or two or less satellite signals are being received. Errors that occur in such conditions cannot be corrected.
- The position of the vehicle within the navigation may differ from your actual location depending on various reasons, including the satellite transmission state, vehicle state (driving location and conditions), etc. Additionally, the car position mark may differ from the actual position if the map data is different from the actual road landscape, such as changes due to the construction of new roads. If such differences occur, driving for a short period of time will automatically correct the position of the vehicle through map matching or GPS information.
What is GNSS?
The GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense.
GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.
GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS.
About satellite signals
Your unit must acquire satellite signals to operate. If you are indoors, near tall buildings or trees, or in a parking garage, the unit cannot acquire satellite signal.
Acquiring satellite signals
Before the unit can determine your current position and navigate a route, you must do the following steps:
- Go outside to an area free from tall obstructions.
- Turn on the unit. Acquiring satellite signals can take a few minutes.
