IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS The Magellan RoadMate receiver is a vehicle-navigation aid designed to assist you in arriving at your selected destinations. When using the Magellan RoadMate receiver, these safety rules must be followed to prevent accidents that can result in injury or death to yourself or others: Please check the applicable regulations in your state regarding windshield mounting. Certain states prohibit the mounting of any items on your windshield. Go to www.magellanGPS.com for alternative mounting solutions. When driving, the need to view the display is minimal. Voice prompts will guide you to your destination. The driver should enter data or program the Magellan RoadMate receiver only when the vehicle is stationary. Only a vehicle passenger should enter data or program the Magellan RoadMate receiver while the vehicle is moving. Do not become distracted by the receiver while driving, and always be fully aware of all driving conditions. It is your responsibility to comply with all traffic laws and to use the Magellan RoadMate and mounting options in such a manner that the user is in compliance with applicable laws. Roads, points of interest (POIs), business and service locations may change over time. As a result the database may contain inaccuracy. Also, the database does not include, analyse, process, consider, or reflect any of the following: legal restrictions (such as vehicle type, weight, height, width, load and speed restrictions); road slope or gradient; bridge height, width, weight or other limits; population density; neighborhood quality or safety; availability or proximity of police, emergency rescue, medical or other assistance; construction work zones or hazards; road or lane closures; road, traffic or traffic facilities' safety or condition; weather conditions; pavement characteristics or conditions; special events; traffic congestion. It is your responsibility to disregard any unsafe, hazardous or illegal route suggestions. Keep the Magellan RoadMate receiver safe from extreme temperature conditions. For example, do not leave it exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Take care when mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver in your vehicle, whether using the windshield mount or other mounts, that it does not obstruct the driver's view of the road, interfere with the operation of the vehicle's safety devices such as air bags, or present a hazard to occupants of the vehicle should the receiver be dislodged while driving. It is your responsibility to assess the risks associated with damage to your vehicle or vehicle occupants as the result of your choices in mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver. Temperature The maximum operating temperature is 140°F (60°C). Battery The battery in the Magellan RoadMate receiver is rechargeable and should not be removed. In the event that it should need to be replaced, please contact Magellan Technical Support. Charging the Magellan RoadMate An optional AC adapter is available as an accessory for your Magellan RoadMate. Use of another type of AC adapter can result in malfunction and/or possible fire hazard due to battery overheating. Only use the car charger approved for/supplied with your Magellan RoadMate receiver. Use of another type of car charger will result in fire or electric shock. For safety reasons, the battery in your Magellan RoadMate receiver will stop charging when the ambient temperature is less than 32°F (0°C) or more than 113°F (45°C). It will take approximately 4 hours of charging the Magellan RoadMate receiver through the vehicle power adapter or optional AC adapter to obtain a full battery charge. It is recommended that you charge the battery initially for at least 2 hours. Use only the charger approved for your Magellan RoadMate receiver. Estimated usage of the Magellan RoadMate on battery power is approximately 2 hours. i

Magellan RoadMate Receiver The Magellan ® RoadMate ® receiver is a vehicle navigation product that utilizes GPS signals from satellites to calculate your precise location and compute navigational information that can be used to guide you to your destination. Knowing its position and movement, it can then overlay this information on detailed maps to provide a visual representation of your location. With the Magellan RoadMate receiver you can: Save searches and addresses under the OneTouch menu for fast, convenient access to favorite destinations. Store your home address and quickly get routing details to your home. Enter and save addresses in your address book that can be accessed at any time and get routing information to that address. Route to an address that you enter using the QuickSpell and Smart City search for easy, errorless address entry. Route to any point of interest (POI) that has been preloaded into your Magellan RoadMate receiver. Create a route with multiple destinations. Handy for business people who need routing information to many destinations. Access the AAA TourBook ® providing ratings and descriptions on AAA-approved places to stay, play, dine, and save. Access AAA Member Roadside Assistance information from the OneTouch menu. View POIs that are near exits ahead of you on the highway. The Highway Exit POIs function provides you with a list of gas stations, restaurants, hotels and auto repair shops located nearby exits you are approaching while travelling on the interstate. Customize your Magellan RoadMate receiver to meet your needs using the Settings menu. Receive traffic information so as to avoid delays in your travel. The user interface for the Magellan RoadMate receiver is easy and simple to follow once you understand the basics. You may never need to refer to this manual, but if you do, we have tried to present it in a form that makes it easy for you to access the function you are trying to use and follow the steps provided. The Magellan RoadMate receiver has a built-in battery so, in most cases, you will be able to follow these instructions while reading them on your computer screen without plugging the Magellan RoadMate receiver to the AC power using an optional AC power adapter. You should note that while indoors you may not get strong enough satellite signals to compute your location, so your location information may not be updated. However, the power of the GPS chipset installed in the Magellan RoadMate receiver will pick up satellite signals in some very demanding locations. You may find that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is computing a position, even indoors. Even with the improved GPS chipset, the receiver may not be able to always compute a fix indoors. This is especially important to note if you are in a garage or other overhanging structure. If you find you are not getting strong enough satellite signals while in a garage or other structure, move to a location where there is a clear view of the sky and you should immediately see an improvement in signal strength. The Magellan RoadMate receiver includes Voice Alerts (Text-to-Speech) for driving instructions. This document is set up to be printed on 8.5" x 11" paper should you desire a printed version for your reference. 1
