[ Edited ]

How do I attach my unit to my windshield or dash?

• The GPS should not be mounted in a place that would block the driver’s view of the road.
• Make sure your car’s airbags are not obstructed by the GPS.
• Use the supplied mounting bracket and cradle to mount your GPS in a vehicle.

 

1. Slide the mount cradle onto the end of the mounting bracket to attach it.
2. Set the bottom edge of your GPS onto the mount cradle, then push the GPS into the tab at the top of the mount cradle.
3. Lift the suction cup lever and then press the suction cup to the windshield.
4. Press the suction cup lever toward the windshield to attach the bracket to the windshield.
5. Rotate the knob to adjust the assembly to the proper position.

My destination is not in the map (house, street, store, etc.).

My destination is not in the map (house, street, store, etc.).

• The maps and POIs (Points of Interest) are supplied by Navteq, the leading map supplier in the industry. They supply maps to many other GPS manufacturers. Their team of data collectors drives around the country and constantly collects updates for roads and POIs. Unfortunately, they are not able to collect the latest data for every road and POI in every area.
• If you have found an error in the data, you can log onto Navteq’s website and they will add it to their list of areas to update. (http://mapreporter.navteq.com/dur-web-external/secured/submitDur.do?userType=CONSUMER&language=en)

• If this does not work, try using a different power source to charge the battery.
• Plug the GPS in and let it charge for at least an hour before pressing the reset button on the bottom of your GPS and turning it on.
• If the GPS still does not work after trying these procedures, return the GPS to Best Buy to have it tested.
