II. Resistive Screen What does it mean ? The Cruz Reader has a “resistive touch screen, meaning there are two electronic layers inside the screen separated by a narrow gap. When your finger presses on an area of the screen, these two layers are joined, sending the info to the Cruz processor and translating it as input. What makes it work best ? Resistive screens work best when using a sharp, precise touch, like that of a fingernail or pen top and do require a little more pressure than the capacitive screens found on many smart phones. Because they do not detect the heat of your finger like capacitive screens, a tool like a stylus can also be used to easily and precisely navigate the Cruz Reader’s touch screen. NOTE: If you choose to use a tool like a stylus, be careful it does not have a metal tip, which could scratch the touch screen! 3 RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS

III. Get Started Before continuing, understand that the display has a screen timeout by default set to 15 seconds. If the unit is left inactive for that period of time, the screen will go dark as if turned off. However, it is simply in standby mode. Tap the power button and a screen will appear with an arc with green padlock buttons on either side. This is your Lock Screen. It appears to secure the touch screen from accidental touches. Simply slide one of the locks toward the center of the screen to unlock the device and your Home Screen will reappear. The Battery should have a nominal charge on it out of the box and should charge fairly rapidly. Connect the charger to the DC-IN jack on your Cruz for 20 to 30 minutes for a full charge lasting approximately 10 hours. The charging indicator LED to the right of the DC adapter plug will glow red when charging, green when complete, and off when not needed. Battery life will vary due to many conditions, especially when using Wi-Fi and maximum screen brightness. To start your Cruz, simply press the on/off button located at the top of the device. When you first turn on the Cruz Reader, you will be greeted with a CRUZ logo, then an ANDROID logo, and then your Home screen. Putting your Cruz to sleep To save battery, you should put your Cruz in sleep mode by turning off the LCD display. To do this, simply tap (not hold) the on/off button. Tap again to bring up the lock screen. Powering down your Cruz To turn off your Cruz completely, press and hold the on/off button until the “system options” dialog appears. Then tap “shut down.

IV. Your Home Screen T hink of this as your desktop. What goes on the home screen is up to you. You can fill the space with any combination of short- cuts, widgets, and folders you like. Some preinstalled shortcut icons will appear at the bottom, and a Google Search Widget ap- pears at the top. When you power up your Cruz for the first time, you’ll see the main home-screen panel. This panel is typically centered; you can access additional panels on either side of the main one by swiping your finger left or right. At the top of the Home Screen is your Status Bar. At the left, you have a set of four Control Icons. If you are ever in an application that uses full screen mode and therefore hides these icons, simply tap on the center of the screen to make the Status Bar reappear momen- tarily. From left to right, the icons are Home Search , and Menu , Back , To the right on the Status Bar you will find the date and time. To the left of the date, you will see a Battery Life icon . This icon changes to a Battery Charging icon when the DC Adapter is connected and plugged into the wall socket, regardless if there is a full charge or not. To the left of that will appear a Wi-Fi icon ( ), but only when connected. The icon will show your Wi-Fi signal strength as well. In the center of the Status Bar is the Notification Area. Various icons will appear for different reasons, notifying you of change of status or the completion of tasks being performed. For instance, once a download is started, a download icon will appear. For more information about these notifications, swipe the Status Bar downward to open the Notification Panel. When tasks are completed, you can open these files or clear these notifications. You can close the Notification Panel by swiping up again from the panel’s control handle. The button at the bottom of the screen accesses your App Panel. Tap or swipe the button upward to view and access your installed apps. This is where you look to find your newly installed apps. Tap again or swipe down to close this panel and view your Home Screen again. 5 RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS

IV. Your Home Screen (Cont’d) Adding Widgets to Your Home Screen: Widgets are a feature of an application that you may install, allowing you to place a function of that app onto your Home Screen. For instance, you may add an Analog clock to your Home Screen. To add a widget, simply tap and hold (long press) your finger on any open space on your home screen, and select Widgets from the context menu that opens. From there, select any of the available widgets. (The image shown here includes third party apps not included on your Read- er. Tapping/holding on an open spot on the homescreen opens this window, from which you choose “Widgets. After tapping “Widgets, this window expands and gives you all the widget options that your Cruz has installed or isn’t currently using. If you decide you don’t want the widget on your homescreen anymore, simply tap and hold the unwanted icon or widget. The Application Panel handle becomes a Trash Can. Drag the item to the trash can and release it when it turns red. RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS 6

V. Connecting to Wi-Fi For the sake of this guide, the assumption is that you are connecting to your Cruz to your own home Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) or a free unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot. From the Home Screen, select the shortcut icon that reads Wi-Fi Settings and ensure that both Wi-Fi and Network Notification are enabled with green check marks. After a moment, your Wi-Fi networks list should populate. If you need to rescan for available networks, tap Menu> then tap Scan. The Wi-Fi settings icon is a hammer and a wrench. It should be located in the bottom-right of your screen upon first starting up your Cruz. Detected networks will appear with a SSID to the left (ie, AQFQ7), a status line beneath the SSID, a signal strength icon to the right. Those that are secure will feature a padlock. Secure Those that are open/unsecure have no padlock Unsecure 7 RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS

V. Connecting to Wi-Fi (Cont’d) Tap the network you wish to connect to and then click Connect. For unprotected networks, this method should suffice. The Wi-Fi icon ( ) should now appear with full (or near full) strength next to the date and time. Accessibility If a password is required, tap the password text field for the popup keyboard. Many public Wi-Fi hotspots are freely accessible, though not all are. Some are secured, oth- ers are open. And still others appear to have no security, but require either access codes or some other form of access agreement acknowledgment via a browser. It is possible to con- nect to such a signal, appear to be connected, and still require validation. Once the Cruz has successfully connected to any SSID, it is saved. The unit will try to auto- connect to the most recently successful connection. When that SSID is no longer available, it is listed in the Wi-Fi networks list as “Not in range, remembered” in the status line. Troubleshooting 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) If you change the password of your wireless network, be sure to also change the remembered password. If the connection is not made automatically, you may need to scan again by tapping Menu> then Scan. If scanning appears ineffective, turn off Wi-Fi and turn it back on again, then scan again. If your Wi-Fi seems to turn off when your device sleeps, you may disable this under Menu> Wi-Fi Sleep Policy. Be sure that the signal strength is not too weak or not in range, understanding that other radio devices like cordless phones may interfere with the signal quality. Some Wi-Fi signals, though listed as unsecured, may still block connections using MAC address filtering. This will need to be disabled in the Wi-Fi router, or the device’s MAC address will need to be added to the router as an acceptable device connection. Some Wi-Fi signals appear to be unsecured, but once connected, opening the web browser does not take you to your home page, but to a security page where you must enter credentials or agree to terms of use before getting full web access. 7) RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS 8

VI. Email Setup The pre-installed Email app is a simple but effective email client for both POP3 and IMAP email services. Configuration is automatic for some email services. For those that are auto-configured, you only need to enter the email address and password, then click next. Otheriwise, you will need to Prior to beginning, you will need detailed email configuration information which is available from your service provider. You may have to locate the server settings information at your Email Provider’s support website, or you may need to call their sup- port line. Unfortunately Velocity Micro cannot provide assistance with this step. Below is the information you are looking for: You must select POP3, IMAP or Exchange according to your email service , provider’s instructions. Typically this is POP3, but many are now allowing for IMAP service. If you need to connect to an Exchange server, contact your business systems Network Administrator for assistance. This must be either your email alias (the part in front of the @ character), or your full email address. The password is case sensitive This is the address at which your incoming mail is waiting for you. You must specify a port number for communication with your incoming mail server. This is the address which is waiting for your outgoing mail. You must specify a port number for communication with your outgoing mail server. You must specify if/whether a security method is required for communication with your incoming mail server. Server Type Username or Email Address: Password Incoming mail server Port Outgoing mail server Port Security type Next, complete the fields for the Incoming Server portion of the manual setup. After completing the Incoming Server portion of the manual setup, the app will test your settings. If everything is correct, it will proceed with the Outgoing Server portion of the manual setup. Once that test completes as well, you are done except for giving the account a name and entering your display name. 9 RETURN TO TABLE OF CONTENTS
