8 1 W arnings and safety information Touch & Go Navigator is a navigation system that helps you find your way to your selected destination. It will dete rmine your exact location with the help of an attached GPS device. The position information obt ained from the GPS receiver will not be transmitted anywhere, so other s will not be able to track y ou by the help of this program.
10 2 General information Touch & Go Navigator is a navigation system optimised for in-car use. It provides door-to-door navigation for bot h single and multi-point rout es using adaptable route parameters. Touch & Go Navigator is capable of planning routes throughout the whole map region installed on the memory card.
12 3 Operating T ouch & Go Navigator (Controls) Touch & Go Navigator is designed for easy operation. All contro ls are operable by fingertips. Wherever possible, pushbuttons and lists are provided to make accessing functions or changing settings as easy as possible.
13 3.1.1 Tilt up and down This function modifies the vertical view angle of the map in 3D mode. Touch & Go Navigator offers a wide range of view angl es starting from a top down view (a seamlessly integrated 2D view) down to a flat view that lets you see far ahead.
14 Tip: Use this button any time during your journey if you need t he distance and type of the next route event. Note: In order to receive voice in structions, sound should not be muted ( 4.5.11), voice guidance must be enabled ( 5.3.2), and a route must be active.
15 3.2.2 List selectors When the values in the list need to be nam ed, only the current value is shown (sometimes together with a s hort description) in a horizontal stripe with arrows at both ends. The arrows are buttons. Tap to move left in the list or tap to move right.
16 3.2.5 Special switches Some switches behave differently. Instead of being dark when not selected, the light turns red and the lamp becomes crossed out ( ) to emphasize the prohibition of use. Furthermore the switches used for the road types (to be included or avoided when planning a route) in t he Route Parameters screen ( 5.
17 18.104.22.168 ABC-type keyboards These keyboards contain only letters (Latin, Hebraic, Greek or Cyrillic). If you wish to enter numbers, you need to tap the Keys ( ) button to switch to the numeric keyboard. Use Backspace ( ) to delete the last letter y ou have entered if you have made a mistake, tap Space ( ) to enter more words, and hit Done ( ) to finish entering the text.
18 22.214.171.124 The numeric keyboard The numeric keyboard only contains num bers, on huge buttons. The special keys you find on the other keyboards (except Space) are available here as well. Although QWERTY-type keyboards also contain number keys, when entering a house number, the program offers the more convenient numeric keypad.
20 4 Discovering the program through the screens The best way to discover Touch & Go Navigat or is to explore eac h screen in detail, and to find out how to move from one to another. Read this chapter for a guided tour. Touch & Go Navigator starts by displaying the Main menu.
21 ** Same as removing the SD card 4.2 About screen Tap About on the Main menu screen to open this screen. The About screen is not used in no rmal navigation. It is there to inform you about the map licenses you have, the creators of Touch & Go Navigator and the legal aspects of using the program.
22 Additional pieces of information on th is screen are: current position in latitude/longitude format, elevation, speed, date, time and calculated accuracy. Note: Accuracy can be affected by several fa ctors the GPS cannot take into account.
23 • - green means 3D reception. The GPS receiver has enough satellites to calculate altitude. Position is generally co rrect (yet it can still be inaccurate due to different environmental factors). Touch & Go Navigator is ready for navigation.
24 Navigator provides much more than r egular paper maps can. The look and the contents can be changed. 4.4.1 2D and 3D map views Besides the classical top down view of the map (called 2D mode), you have the possibility to tilt the map to have a perspec tive view (3D mode) that gives a view similar to that seen through the windscr een with the possibility to see far ahead.
25 junction. If the next turn is at a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to flat in order to let you see the road in front of you. 4.4.3 Daylight and night colour schemes The different colour schemes let you adjus t Touch & Go Navigator to the brightness of the environment.
26 4.4.4 Streets and roads The similarity of Touch & Go Navigator to paper roadmaps is also convenient when it comes to streets, the most important el ements of the map concerning navigation. Touch & Go Navigator uses similar colour codes to those you are accustomed to, and the width of the streets also refers to t heir importance, so it will not be difficult to tell a highway from a small street.
27 The arrow is sized and vertically rotated wit h the zoom and tilt levels to always look realistic. Touch & Go Navigator has a built-in Lo ck-on-Road feature t hat always puts the position arrow on the road, on t he axis of the street in ca se of one-way streets, or on the side of the road where y ou drive (e.
28 The colour of the pin is automatically se lected by Touch & Go Navigator. Different colours help you identify a pin in the History list ( 6.3.2) later. There they are shown together with their addre ss and GPS coordinates. Tip: A quick way to tell the coordinates of a location you found on the map is to pin it, and then look for the coordinates in the History list ( 6.
29 4.4.10 Elements of the Active Route Touch & Go Navigator uses a multi-desti nation routing system in which you have a start point (your current locati on if GPS position is availabl e), a destination, the line of the active leg of the route, and optionally via points and i nactive legs.
30 4.5 Screens with map Having explained the contents of the map, the description of the other parts of the map screens follows. There are two map screens: the Map screen and the Cockpit screen. The way they show t he map is the same but their look and controls are optimised for different purposes.

32 As already described in 3.1.2, zoom will change the scale of the map. Zoom out shows a larger part of the m ap, while Zoom in shows a smaller part of the map in more detail. The automatic Smart Zoom function will do the necessary zooming for you when navigating (zooms out if the next turn is at a distance to let you see far ahead and zooms in when approaching a turn to give you a better view of the upcoming manoeuvre).
33 Normally Touch & Go Navigator positions the map to keep the GPS position visible somewhere on the map (when North-up orient ation is selected), or always at the bottom centre of the map (when Tr ack-up orientation is selected). If you manually move the map, it will freeze t he map in the new posit ion.
34 4.5.7 Menu (No. 9) This button opens the Menu wit h the Find engine, the Qui ck menu, the Route menu and the exit button that takes you to the Main menu scr een. The Menu will be described in detail later in 4.7. 4.5.8 Map orientation and Overview (No.
35 4.5.9 GPS position quality (No. 11) Similarly to the icon f ound on the GPS Data screen ( 4.3.3), the map screens also inform you about the GPS signal. They can show the same four values: • The black satellite dish with the red exclamation mark shows there is no connection with the GPS receiver.
36 Tap again to re-enable sounds. Note: Sound can be muted in Sound settings ( 5.3), too. There you have a Master switch that works together with the switch described above. There is also a Master slider on that screen. That you can use to fully turn down the volume of the device.
37 Tip: If you want to see the map around the Cursor, close the Cursor menu and reopen it. When this menu is opened manually, the m ap is always moved to have the cursor in the centre. The content of the Cursor menu depends on the screen (Map or Cockpit) and it is slightly different if there is an active route already planned.
38 • Add POI : opens the new POI capture window to let you add the selected map point to the list of your user points. This menu point is onl y available on the Map screen and if there are no POIs near the cursor (i.e. only the address is shown in the Popup Info window).
39 4.5.16 Distance to next turn (No. 18) This field shows the distance to go befor e reaching the next ro ute event (turn, roundabout, exit, etc.) This field is only displayed when navigating a route. 4.5.17 Next street / Next settlement (No.
40 4.6.1 Route data displayed (fo r destination and via points) In the top section of the screen you see information about the current route. These fields are continuously updated while you keep this screen open. When you open the screen, all fields cont ain information on reaching your final destination.
41 126.96.36.199 Time Left This is an estimated value that can also be displayed in one of the Route data fields on the Cockpit screen as ‘Time to destinati on’. It shows the time needed to reach the final destination of the route based on in formation available for the remaining segments of the route.
42 • - This icon shows that toll r oads are included in the recommended route. • - This icon shows that you need to board a ferry along the recommended route. • - This icon shows that you need to pay for the ferry. • - This icon is displayed when Touch & Go Navigator could not plan a route with all your road type preferences respected.
43 4.6.4 Parameters This button opens the Route parameter settings screen ( 5.4) otherwise opened from the Route menu ( 4.7.3). 4.7 Menu The Menu button can be found in the top right corner of the portrait and square map screens and in the bottom left corner of the landscape map screens.
44 Note: When you reach 2D view by tilting t he map, Smart Zoom will tilt the m ap as you press the Lock button or it disappears after the timeout (set in Advanced settings) expires. Use the 3D Map toggle to permanently switch to 2D view. 4.
45 If you highlight any of the POI groups by tapping them, the button in the bottom left corner will become Show if the POI group is hidden, or Hide if the group is shown or partly shown. Tip: To make a partly shown group fully s hown, tap this button twice.
46 • Show/Hide : similarly to built-in POIs, you have the possibility to show or hide all POIs of the selected category on t he map. Groups with a blue icon are displayed; groups with a grey icon are hidden. • New : you can create a new My POI group by tapping this button.
47 • Delete : you can delete any of your previously saved POIs. Touch & Go Navigator will ask you to confirm this action. • Edit : you can edit the attributes (name, icon and group) of a previously created POI. • OK : if you tap this button, the map screen returns with the selected POI in the middle.
48 Each track log has a colour, shown to the le ft of its name when the track log is visible on the map. If the track is not visible, an underscore character is shown here. Tapping the line of the highlighted track log will toggle between showing and hiding that log.
49 • Replay : push this button to see a simulation of the saved track log on the map. A green icon ( 4.5.12) will appear on the map screens to let you know it is not a fly over but a simulation based on a real saved log. • Delete : you can delete a track log if it is not needed any more.
50 4.7.3 Route tab This menu contains options to manage different settings in the program. 188.8.131.52 Recalculate This menu point is only available if an active route exists and GPS position is present. It brings up a menu with four options.
51 no via points left (only the desti nation), the name of this butt on turns to Delete Route, and it cancels the navigation. Bypass When you run into a traffic jam or roadblo ck, you may want to have Touch & Go Navigator calculate a route t hat departs the original route as soon as it can.
52 184.108.40.206 Itinerary This function opens the itinerar y (route event list) of the active route. The Itinerary has three different display modes and two functions. Display modes Display modes are different only in the num ber of events display ed in the list.
53 • Road : when you exclude a road, Touch & Go Navigator will calculate a route that does not use that road. It is useful when you anticipate a traffic jam in a street used in your r oute, or a roadblock is announced on the radio, and you find that road in your Itinerary.
54 Use the arrows on the right to browse thr ough the list and tap any li ne to highlight it. You can perform the following operations: • Add : you can add a new route point (or a new final destination if the highlighted item is the last one in the list) after the selected point.

63 5.4.1 Method Use the handle to set the speed of the route calculation. In the leftmost position the route may not be optimal but t he calculation will be very fast. Sliding it to the right will result in more accurate routing in an increased amount of time.
64 motorways for pedestrians), or some of the restrictions may not be taken into account (e.g. emergency vehicles have no restrictions). Available values: • Car • Taxi • Bus • Lorry • Emergency • Bicycle • Pedestrian 5.
65 Note: If you are not totally against u-turns, leave them on here, and add a certain penalty (equivalent extra distance to trav el) in Advanced settings Route options ( 22.214.171.124). Note: Via points are handled as stopovers with regards to u-turns.
66 5.5.2 Voice language This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button you can select from a list of available languages and speakers. Tap any of these to hear a sample voice prompt. Just tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.
67 5.6.1 Display options These settings determine how Touch & Go Navigator displays different content elements or how it presents the screens. 126.96.36.199 2D in Map mode (and north-up orientation) The normal use of the Map m ode is to browse the map and look for different places on it.
68 188.8.131.52 Coordinate display format Positions are sometimes displayed with their addresses, and sometimes with their coordinates. This setting lets you choose between displaying coordinates in degrees (dd.dddddd); degrees and minutes (dd mm.
69 184.108.40.206 Brightness With this switch you can instruct Touch & Go Navigator to use the original settings of the PND device (previously set in the operati ng system at Start/Setti ngs/Backlight), or you can set the backlight level separatel y for both daylight and night modes, thus enhancing the effect of the night colour scheme.
70 You can also move the map in Over view mode. Then the Lock button will appear, and when pushed, it will move the map to have your current position in the middle again. On the other hand you are not allowed to rotate the map in Overview mode.
71 Note: Smart Zoom can only be re-enabled when it is activated at the top of this page.

Delay before restoring You can set the timeout for both Restore Lock-to-Position and Restore Smart Zoom here.
72 This is a range of relative values from 0 to 10, telling Touch & Go Navigator how far the GPS position should be from the recommended r oute before the program decides to recalculate. Lower values ma ke Touch & Go Navigator insensitive to position errors; higher values will result in quicker reactions.
73 220.127.116.11 Backup Data Since the data stored in primary memo ry may not be safe, and will not be moved when the Touch & Go Navigator card is put into another PND, you can make a safe copy of the whole user database on the SD card. Tap this button to copy all user data to the SD card.
74 18.104.22.168 Reset Advanced Settings There are a multitude of Ad vanced settings in Touch & Go Navigator. Some changes may cause Touch & Go Navigator to behav e in an unsatisfying manner. Tap this button to restore the default settings.
76 6 Find One of the most frequently used functions of Touch & Go Navigator is selecting the destination. Once you have the destination, you can start navigating. Getting to this point should be as fast as possible. T ouch & Go Navigator provides you with a versatile search engine designed to find your chosen destination after only a few taps on the screen.
77 Tip: If you want the selected point shown in the centre of the map, close and reopen the menu or wait until it closes and open it again. By opening the Cursor menu manually, the map will be m oved to have the selected location in the centre.
78 22.214.171.124 Selecting the city, st ate and country to search in The first screen of the address-search module is the list of recently used cities (and states in Australia). The first line of the lis t is always the city you are in or near to.
79 combination of those. You can search for multiple partial words by inserting space characters in the pattern. For example Ke y West in Florida will be found if you enter ‘Ke W’ or even ‘We K’ (any word order will do). You do not need to enter acc ents when searching for a destination.
80 Once you have selected the city, you can continue by entering the street name. Changing the state (Australia, USA, etc.) Some of the maps contain state information. If the settlement you are looking for is in a different state, tap Other City then Change State from the list of recently used cities, then select the appropr iate state.
81 Selecting the centre of the settlement If you wish to navigate to the settlement displa yed in the top centre of the screen, just tap Done before entering any lette rs. The search result will be the centre point of the city (where its name is displayed on the map).
82 Enter the number, tap Done, and Touch & Go Navigator will show you the selected location on the map (or will start navigating immediately if you have selected Find & GO at the Main menu). Note: House numbers may not be available on t he map of your region.
83 Just pick any of the recent locations as your destination. Here you have no possibility to reorder the list or filter it by name, but the Next and Previous buttons let you browse through the complete list to find your preferred point. Tip: If you will need a location later but you do not want to save it as a POI, just mark it with a pin, and remember its colour to find it easily in the History list.
84 Once you have entered both numbers, press Done to make the selection. Tip: The quickest way to tell the coordinates of a point is to select it by tapping on the map or by using Find, and then come to this page and read the coordinates. Tip: If you need to reformat coordinates to the format selected in Touch & Go Navigator at 5.
85 • GPS Position : the search will be carried out around the current location given by the GPS if it is available. If no G PS position is available, the last known GPS position (grey arrow on the map) will be used. • Cursor : the search will be carried out ar ound the previously selected map point.
86 Tapping OK will return to the map with the selected POI in the centre (or starts navigating to it if Find & GO was selected) . Tapping the arrow in the top left corner returns to the search results. Tip: If you want to find the nearest POIs, or if you are close to one of them but do not know exactly where it is or what its name is, tap the All button on the very first screen of POI search, and get a list of the nearest POIs.
