Each of these views has different functions that are described in the following.

User's manual Sony Personal Navigation System

- 62 - Operating the map

Standard map view

The STANDARD map view appears after you switch on the navigation device and also during navigation.

The following properties are typical for this view:

Your current position is indicated by a red triangle in the centre of the lower third. When you move along, the triangle does not change its position on the screen. Instead, the map section changes according to your direction of movement.

The scale of the map changes depending on your speed.

The following information is being displayed at the bottom of the screen:

your driving direction

the street you are currently in

the time

and your current speed.

You can open the STANDARD map view by tapping on the

Map view button. This button can be found on almost all the Sony Personal Navigation System screens.

The map opens automatically when you start navigation.

Opening the menu Under the standard map view, when you tap on a point in the map, the MENU opens. From here you can access all the functions of the Sony Personal Navigation System.

The STANDARD map view offers the following buttons:

This view corresponds to the map view of printed maps, but is impractical for the navigation.

Tap on In driving direction in order to align the map in such a way that the straight ahead direction of movement is always pointing up on the screen.

This view is recommended for the navigation because the directions right and left are shown on the map exactly as they are in reality.

Search for destination Search for destination

Tap on this button to change to the Search for destination map view. Refer to the next chapter ("Search for destination view" on page 63) for more information.

Assistance for navigation

Various types of information useful for the journey will be displayed during navigation.

Field Information

If two maneuvers are to be executed quickly one after the other, the small upper arrow field indicates the maneuver to be executed immediately after the next maneuver.

The red arrow indicates your current position on the map.

The next maneuver is shown in the large arrow field. Left of the indication arrow you will see a row of orange bars. As you approach the place where the maneuver needs to be carried out, these bars will decrease. When all the bars have disappeared, this is when you need to carry out the action (e.g. turn). The bars appear again afterwards.

The distance field shows the distance until the next action. As you approach the place where the action needs to be carried out, the distance information is hidden. You then need to orientate yourself on the bars to the left of the arrow.

The upper street field indicates the name of the next street to turn on.

The lower street field indicates the name of the street you are currently on.

Glossary

COM-port A COM port is a connector to a communications interface, usually the serial port. The ports are numbered by a number behind "COM". A communications interface is designed to connect hardware like a mouse or a GPS receiver.

GMT GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is the mean solar time at the Royal

Greenwich Observatory in Greenwich near London, England, which by convention is at 0 degrees geographic longitude. Theoretically, noon Greenwich Mean Time is the moment when the Sun crosses the Greenwich meridian (and reaches its highest point in the sky in Greenwich). Up to 1972, GMT was the global time standard. Because of the Earth's uneven speed in its elliptic orbit, GMT has been replaced by UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) which is an ultra stable time standard based on atomic clocks.

GPS The GPS (Global Positioning System) is based on 24 satellites

that are in orbit round the earth. They are permanently emitting the time and their current position. The GPS receiver receives this information and calculates the longitude and the latitude of its own current position.

The signals of at least three satellites are needed to determine the longitude and the latitude. With the signals of at least four satellites the elevation may be calculated, too. The determination has an accuracy of about 3 yards.

HDOP The Horizontal Dilution of Precision (HDOP) indicates the quality

of position determination. Theoretically any value from 0 to 50 is possible. The smaller the value is, the more accurate is the position determination (value 0 = no deviation from the actual position). Values up to 8 are convenient for street navigation.

POI Point of Interest (POI). See Points of Interest.

Points of Interest Points of Interest, also called POI, are covered by the map and

may be displayed on it. Harbors, airports, restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, public buildings, and others belong to the points of interest. You may determine points of interest as itinerary points for navigation purposes.
