Thank you for your purchase of the Navigation System. Please read this \
manual carefully to ensure proper use. Keep this manual
in your vehicle at all times.
The Navigation System is one of the most technologically advanced vehicl\
e accessories ever developed. The system receives sate llite
signals from the Global Positioning System (GPS) operated by the U.S. \
Department of Defense. Using these signals and other veh icle
sensors, the system indicates your present position and assists in locating a de\
The navigation system is designed to select efficient routes from your present starting location to your destination. The system is also designed
to direct you to a destination that is unfamiliar to you in an efficient manner. The system uses DENSO maps. The calculated routes may not
be the shortest nor the least traffic congested. Your own personal local knowledge or “short cut” may at times be fa\
ster than the calculated
The navigation system’s database includes about 75 Point of Interest categories to allow you to \
easily select destinations such as restaurants
and banks. If a destination is not in the database, you can enter the stre\
et address or a major intersection close to it and the system will guide
you there. The system will provide both a visual map and audio instruct\
ions. The audio instructions will announce the distanc e remaining
and the direction to turn in approaching a fork or intersection. These voi\
ce instructions will help you keep your eyes on the road and are timed
to provide enough time to allow you to maneuver, change lanes or slow down.
Please be aware that all current vehicle navigation systems have certain limitatio\
ns that may affect their ability to perform properly.
The accuracy of the vehicle’s position depends on the satellite condition, road configuration, vehicle condition or other \
ces. For more information on the limitations of the system, refer to pages \
198 through 200.

This system is intended to assist in reaching
the destination and, if used properly, can do
so. The driver is solely responsible for the
safe operation of your vehicle and the safety
of your passengers.
Do not use any feature of this system to the
extent it becomes a distraction and prevents
safe driving. The first priority while driving
should always be the safe operation of the
vehicle. While driving, be sure to observe all
traffic regulations. Prior to the actual use of this system, learn
how to use it and become thoroughly familiar
with it. Read the entire Navigation System
Owner’s Manual to make sure you under-
the system. Do not allow other people
to use this system until they have read and
understood the instructions in this manual.
For your safety, some functions may become
inoperable when driving. Unavailable
touch− screen buttons are dimmed. Only
when the vehicle is not moving, can the des-
tination and route selection be done.
For safety, the driver should not
operate the navigation system while
he/she is driving. Insufficient
attention to the road and traffic may
cause an accident.
While you are driving, be sure to
obey the traffic regulations and
maintain awareness of the road
conditions. If a traffic sign on the
road has been changed, route
guidance may provide wrong
information such as th e direction of
a one way street.
While driving, listen to the voice instructions
as much as possible and glance at the
screen briefly and only when it is safe. How-
ever, do not totally rely on voice guidance.
Use it just for reference. If the system cannot
determine the current vehicle position cor-
rectly, there is a possibility of incorrect, late,
or non −voice guidance.
The data in the system may occasionally be
incomplete. Road conditions, including driv-
ing restrictions (no left turns, street closures,
etc.) frequently change. Therefore, before
following any instruction from the system,
look to see whether the instruction can be
done safely and legally.
This system cannot warn about such things
as the safety of an area, condition of streets,
and availability of emergency services. If un-
sure about the safety of an area, do not drive
into it. Under no circumstances is this
system a substitute for the driver’s per-
Use this system only in locations where it is
legal to do so. Some states/provinces may
have laws prohibiting the use of video and
navigation screens next to the driver.
