GENERAL INFORMATION FOR
CURRENT VEHICLE LOCATION
Display of current vehicle location
This navigation system combines the data
obtained from the vehicle (by gyro sensor) and
from GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites
to calculate the current location of the vehicle.
This position is then displayed throughout route
guidance to a destination.
What is GPS (Global Positioning Sys-
GPS is a position detecting system that uses
satellites deployed by the U.S. government. This
navigation system receives radio signals from
three or more different satellites that orbit
13,049 miles (21,000 km) above the earth in
space, and detect the position of the vehicle by
utilizing the principle of triangulation.
When the system judges that the vehicle position
is not accurate based on vehicle speed and gyro
sensor data calculations, the system will auto-
matically adjust the position of the vehicle icon
using GPS signals. Receiving signals from GPS satellites:
The reception of GPS signals can be weak,
depending on the environment. Vehicles in the
following areas/environments may not receive
*Inside tunnels or parking garages
*In areas with numerous tall buildings
*Under multi-layered highways
Page 142 of 203
*Areas with numerous tall trees
*In a canyon
The GPS antenna is located on the instrument
panel inside the vehicle. Do not place any
objects, especially cellular phones or transcei-
vers, on the instrument panel. Because the
strength of the GPS signal is approximately one
billionth of that of TV waves, phones and
transceivers will affect or may totally disrupt the
Incorrect display of vehicle position
The following cases may affect the display
accuracy of the vehicle’s position or traveling
direction. The accuracy will return to normal if the
driving conditions return to normal.
*When there is a similar road nearby.
*When the vehicle is traveling in an area with
a grid pattern road system.
*When the vehicle is passing through a large
Page 143 of 203
*When the vehicle is traveling on a contin-
uous, slowly curving road.
*When the vehicle is traveling on a road with
repeating S-shaped curves.
*When the vehicle is on a loop bridge.
*When the vehicle is on a snow-covered or
*When repeatedly turning left or right, or
driving in zigzags.
*When the vehicle is rotated on a parking lot
turntable while the ignition switch placed in
the OFF position.

the vehicle icon position manually.
Detailed Map Coverage Areas (MCA)
for navigation system
This system is designed to help guiding to the
destination, and it also performs other functions
as outlined in this manual. However, the system
must be used safely and properly. Information
concerning road conditions, traffic signs and the
availability of services may not always be up-to-
date. The system is not a substitute for safe,
proper and legal driving.
Map data covers select metropolitan areas in the United States and Canada.
Map data includes two types of areas: “Detailed
coverage areas” providing all detailed road data
and other areas showing “Main roads only”.
Detailed map data is not available in many areas
and is generally limited to select major metropo-

. When you are driving on a road displayed in
gray after the vehicle has deviated from the
suggested route during route guidance,
automatic rerouting may not start immedi-
. The navigation system does not provide
route guidance for roads displayed in dark
green. Therefore, if the destination is set on a
road displayed in dark green, the enlarged
map display will return to the ordinary map
screen at some point on a suggested route
that is near the destination. Also, voice
guidance will stop at some point on a
suggested route that is near the destination.

.Places information and street names near
roads displayed in gray may not be contained
in the map data.
.There may be cases where carpool lanes are
included on a suggested route when the
automatic rerouting function is activated,
even if the [Time Restricted Rd] is set to
[Use Restriction Info] or [Avoid].

route guidance for roads displayed in dark
. If the destination is set on a dark green road,
the enlarged map display will switch to the
ordinary map screen at some point and
suggest a route that is near the destination.
The distance and direction to the endpoint of
the suggested route will be displayed in the
lower right corner of the screen. Also, at this
time, voice guidance will announce, “The
route to your destination includes roads
through incomplete map areas. Voice gui-
dance will not be provided in these areas.”
When approaching the endpoint of the
suggested route, voice guidance will an-
nounce, “Entering the road with incomplete
map data. Please use the direction arrow and distance information to proceed to your
To reach the destination, refer to the map
screen. Always follow actual roads and
regulations and drive safely.
. The suggested route may not be the short-
est, nor are other circumstances such as
traffic jams considered.
. Because of the inevitable difference in road
conditions and circumstances between the
time you use this system and the time the
information was produced for the map data,
there may be discrepancies in roads and
regulations. In such cases, actual road
conditions and regulations take precedence
over map data information.
. During route calculation, the map will not
scroll, however the vehicle icon will move
according to the actual vehicle’s movement.

— If you calculate a route on a main road, thestarting point of the route may not exactly
match the current vehicle location.
— The endpoint of the route may not exactly match the destination.
— If you calculate a route on a main road, the system may display a route from another
main road. This may be because the
position of the vehicle icon is not accu-
rate. In this case, park the vehicle in a safe
location and reset the vehicle icon, or
continue driving to see if the position of
the vehicle icon is automatically adjusted
before recalculating the route.
— There are cases in which the system shows an indirect route to reach the
destination or waypoints, if you set them
from stored or facility information. In order
to correct this, you must be careful about
the traffic direction, especially when lanes
with different travel directions are shown
separately, such as interchanges and
— This system makes no distinction be- tween limited traffic control and total
control (blockage) . It may show an
indirect route even if the road is usable. — Even if the ferry preference is set to OFF, a

. Because freeway lane information is avail-
able only for approximately 7,000 major
freeways in North America, it is not possible
to display information for all junctions and exits.
. Freeway exit information may differ from the
information on the actual exit signs.
. Because it is not possible to consider data
concerning roads that are seasonally avail-
able or unavailable, a route may be displayed
that does not match the actual traffic
restrictions. Be sure to follow the actual
traffic restrictions while driving.
. Canada and Alaska contain many roads with
incomplete map data. As a result, when
searching for a route, the route may include
roads with incomplete data. In regions where
road data is not complete, voice guidance
may stop for long periods of time. Be sure to
follow the actual traffic restrictions while
How to handle the Map SD card
