  • Page 9: Warnings And Safety Information

    Warnings and safety information HP iPAQ Trip Guide is a navigation system that helps you find your way to your selected destination. It will determine your exact location with the help of an connected GPS device. The position information obtained from the GPS receiver will not be transmitted anywhere, so others will not be able to track you by the help of this program.
  • Page 10: General Information

    General information HP iPAQ Trip Guide is a navigation system optimised for in-car use. It provides door- to-door navigation for both single and multi-point routes using adaptable route parameters. HP iPAQ Trip Guide is capable of planning routes throughout the whole installed map set.

For the controls and special functions of the two map screens see Page 38. The current version of HP iPAQ Trip Guide is primarily intended for land navigation. That is why maps in HP iPAQ Trip Guide look similar to paper roadmaps (when using daytime colours and 2D map mode).
  • Page 25: Zoom Levels

    Note: Using the Advanced settings, you can force Cockpit mode to always start in 3D Track-up view (Page 91). You can still rotate and tilt the maps in either mode, but the next time you enter this screen, the preset look will reappear. Similarly you can force Map mode to always start in 2D North-up view.

  • Page 27: Streets And Roads

    Note: The colours mentioned and screenshots included in this manual refer to the default daytime and night colour schemes. They may not look the same in the schemes you have chosen. : If you use HP iPAQ Trip Guide after sunrise or before sunset, look for the sun in the sky in the map background using a flat 3D view.

    You need not choose between the two modes. HP iPAQ Trip Guide will use the one best for the current tilt and zoom level. Zoom in to have only a few streets on the map, and start tilting up and down to see how HP iPAQ Trip Guide switches between the two modes in an instant.
  • Page 29: Current Position And Lock-On-Road

    Current position and Lock-on-Road When your GPS position is available, a blue arrow (yellow when using night colours) shows your location on the map. The direction of the arrow represents your heading. The arrow is sized and vertically rotated with the zoom and tilt levels to always look realistic. HP iPAQ Trip Guide has a built-in Lock-on-Road feature that always puts the position arrow on the road, on the axis of the street in case of one-way streets, or on the side of the road where you drive (e.g.
  • Page 30: Selected Map Point, Also Known As The Cursor

    Note: The Lock-on-Road feature can be turned off in Advanced settings (Page for pedestrian use. When switched off, the arrow is displayed at the position reported by the GPS receiver. When the GPS position is lost, the arrow turns grey, but the journey continues on the recommended route for a short period of time with the speed last detected before the GPS position was lost.
  • Page 31: Marked Map Points (Pin)

    Marked map points (Pin) The Cursor can be marked with a Pin. Pins are shown as being stuck in the map. A Pin is visible at all zoom levels and remains in its position until you unpin it, or delete all Pins in Advanced settings (Page 90) The colour of the Pin is automatically selected by HP iPAQ Trip Guide.
  • Page 32 These icons are large enough to recognise the symbol, and semi-transparent so as not to cover the streets and junctions behind them. When the map is zoomed out, the icons are not shown. As you zoom in, small dots appear at the locations of visible POIs. Zooming in further makes the full icons appear. If two points are too close to each other so that icons overlap, a multi-POI icon shown instead of individual ones.
  • Page 33: Road Safety Cameras

    Road safety cameras Road safety cameras, such as speed cameras and red light cameras are special POI types in HP iPAQ Trip Guide. They are described in detail here: Page 71 Contacts A different type of special POIs are Contacts. When HP iPAQ Trip Guide is started, it will attempt to recognise the addresses in your Pockt PC’s Contact database.
  • Page 34: Elements Of The Active Route

    performance of the application may be experienced, and not all addresses will be found in the My POI / Contacts group at once. From next time only new entries and modifications will be imported. This will be much faster, and previously existing contacts will be available immediately.
  • Page 35: Inactive Legs Of The Route

    The line of the route is displayed on the driving side of the road for two-way and on the axis in case of one-way streets. When the map is zoomed in and the line is wide enough, small arrows show the direction of the route. This can be useful if you preview the route before starting the journey or when entering a complex junction.

    Method Use the handle to set the speed of the route calculation. In the leftmost position the route may not be optimal but the calculation will be very fast. Sliding it to the right will result in more accurate routing in an increased amount of time. Note: Since HP iPAQ Trip Guide calculates routes very quickly, the position of this slide is only used for long routes.
  • Page 87: Economical

    Economical This setting is a wise combination of the previous two. Although basically going for the fastest solution, if there is another route taking a bit more time but a lot less distance compared to the fastest one, HP iPAQ Trip Guide will choose this one instead to save fuel.
  • Page 88: Unpaved Roads

    Note: Excluding a road type is a preference. It does not necessarily mean total prohibition. If your destination can only be accessed using some of the excluded road types, HP iPAQ Trip Guide will use them but only as much as necessary. In this case a warning icon will be shown on the Route Information screen (Page ), and the road not matching your preference will be displayed in alternate colour on the map.

  • Page 92: In Map Mode (And North-Up Orientation)

    2D in Map mode (and North-up orientation) The normal use of the Map mode is to browse the map and look for different places on it. It is usually done in a top down view having north towards the top of the map. By default HP iPAQ Trip Guide uses the same look for the map in both Map and Cockpit modes.
  • Page 93: Coordinate Display Format

  • Page 98: U-Turn Penalty

    When the GPS reception is poor (e.g. driving in an urban environment with a low sensitivity GPS), occasional wandering (called position fluctuation) of the calculated GPS position is likely. Although HP iPAQ Trip Guide employs a sophisticated Lock-on- Road system that will mostly suppress these position errors by aligning your position to the recommended route and the road network of the map, sometimes the errors are too large to correct.
  • Page 99: Carpool Lanes (For The Usa Map Only)

    Carpool lanes (for the USA map only) You can instruct HP iPAQ Trip Guide to use carpool lanes when planning routes. These lanes are currently available in the USA only.

  • Page 104: Selecting The City, State And Country To Search In

    The following illustration shows the structure of the address-search module. There are five levels (Country, State, City, Street and Address). The state level appears only in case of some countries (e.g. Australia, USA). The list of recent cities and states is the entry point of the module.
  • Page 105 Should the settlement you are looking for appear on the list, just tap it and you will immediately jump to the Street Name Input screen with the selected city name or postcode shown at the top of the screen.

  • Page 106 You can accomplish this by using an alphabetic input screen (either an ABC- or a QWERTY-type). You only need to enter the first few letters, as the program only searches among the settlements that exist in the given state or country. If the name of the settlement is of more than one word, the searched pattern can be any or the combination of those.
  • Page 107 Note: If any of the settlements listed has named suburbs or numbered districts that also appear separately in the map, a Show districts button will appear in the bottom left corner. Tap this button to list the suburbs together with the main settlements.

    Glossary The manual may contain many technical terms. Please look below for an explanation if you are unfamiliar with some of them. 2D/3D GPS reception: The GPS receiver uses satellite signals to calculate its (your) position. Depending on the current positions of the ever moving satellites in the sky, and the objects in your environment, the signal that your GPS device receives may be weaker or stronger.
  • Page 121 Automatic route planning (Autorouting): You only need to set up your destination, and based on its map, the software will automatically figure out which roads you need to take, and the turns you need to make to get there. HP iPAQ Trip Guide will let you select multiple destinations, and customise some important routing parameters (Page 85).
  • Page 122 ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival): A frequently used expression in navigation. It represents the time when you will reach your destination based upon calculations using the remaining part of the route and available information of the roads used. This estimation can only be used as a general reference. It will not be able to take into account your future speed or the traffic delays.
