CAUTION
When a route is calculated, the route and voice
guidance for the route are automatically set.
Also, for day or time traffic regulations, only infor-
mation about traffic regulations applicable at the
time when the route was calculated is consid-
ered. One-way streets and street closures may
not be taken into consideration. For example, if a
street is open during the morning only, but you
arrive later, it would be against the traffic regula-
tions so you cannot drive along the set route.
When driving, please follow the actual traffic
signs. Also, the system may not know some traf-
fic regulations.
Before using your navigation system, be sure
to read and fully understand the following
safety information:
! Read the entire manual before operating
this navigation system.
! This navigation system may in certain cir-
cumstances display inaccurate position of
your vehicle, the distance of objects shown
on the screen, and compass directions. In
addition, the system has certain limita-
tions, including the inability to identify one-
way streets, temporary traffic restrictions
and potentially unsafe driving areas. Please
exercise your own judgement in the light of
actual driving conditions.
! The navigation features of your navigation
system (and rear view camera option if pur-
chased) are intended solely as an aid to
you in the operation of your vehicle. It is
not a substitute for your attentiveness, jud-
gement, and care when driving.
! Certain country and government laws may
prohibit or restrict the placement and use
of this system in your vehicle. Please com-
ply with all applicable laws and regulations
regarding the use, installation and opera-
tion of your navigation system.
! Do not operate this navigation system (or
the rear view camera option if purchased) if
doing so will divert your attention in any
way from the safe operation of your vehicle.
Always observe safe driving rules and fol-
low all existing traffic regulations. If you ex-
perience difficulty in operating the system
or reading the display, park your vehicle in
a safe location and apply the handbrake be-
fore making the necessary adjustments.
! Never allow others to use the system un-
less they have read and understood the op-
erating instructions.
! Never use this navigation system to route
to hospitals, police stations or similar facil-
ities in an emergency. Stop using any func-
tions relating to the hands-free phoning
and please call the appropriate emergency
number.
! Route and guidance information displayed
by this equipment is for reference purposes
only. It may not accurately reflect the latest
permissible routes, road conditions, one
way streets, road closures, or traffic restric-
tions.
! Traffic restrictions and advisories currently
in force should always take precedence
over guidance given by the navigation sys-
tem. Always obey current traffic restric-
tions, even if the navigation system
provides contrary advice.
! Failure to set correct information about the
local time may result in the navigation sys-
tem providing improper routing and gui-
dance instructions.
! Never set the volume of your navigation
system so high that you cannot hear out-
side traffic and emergency vehicles.
! The data encoded in the built-in memory is
the intellectual property of the provider, and
the provider is responsible for such con-
tent.
! Keep this manual handy as a reference for
operating procedures and safety informa-
tion.
! Pay close attention to all warnings in this
manual and follow the instructions care-
fully.

! Please remember to wear your seat belt at
all times while operating your vehicle. If
you are in an accident, your injuries can be
considerably more severe if your seat belt
is not properly fastened.
! Never use headphones while driving.
Fuel cost management
These calculations are based only on the infor-
mation that you provide and not on any data
from the vehicle. The fuel mileage displayed is
only a reference value, and does not guarantee
the fuel mileage displayed can be obtained.
Traffic information
! Pioneer does not bear responsibility for the
accuracy of the information transmitted.
! Pioneer does not bear responsibility for
changes to information services provided
by broadcasting stations or by related com-
panies, such as cancellation of services or
changing to pay-services. Also, we do not
accept return of the product for this rea-
son.
Speed limit indication
The speed limit is based on the map database.
The speed limit in the database may not
match the actual speed limit of the current
road. This is not a definite value. Be sure to
drive according to the actual speed limit.
Lorry navigation
p This function is available for AVIC-F130
only.
! Based on the dimensions and other en-
tered parameters of your vehicle, this sys-
tem warns you when you are approaching
a restricted road segment or such roads
must be used in your route.
! Warnings are both visual and audible.
There are different kinds of warnings:
! When approaching a restricted road
segment without a route, you are
warned that there is a restricted area
ahead.
! Restricted road segments are excluded
from your routes but in some cases
some restricted roads need to be used
to reach the given destination. In this
case you receive a warning and you
must accept that you have restricted
roads in your route or you can stop the
navigation and continue without an ac-
tive route.
p Please note that lorry navigation is only as
accurate and comprehensive as the restric-
tions received with the map. Restrictions
may not cover lower priority roads and in
most cases the coverage changes as you
move around your map region. You are ob-
liged to always obey the restrictions dis-
played on the road.

4 Touch the setting item.
! Navigation Mode:
On-road navigation creates a turn by turn
itinerary using the road network on the
map. Switch to off-road navigation to navi-
gate between destinations in a straight line.
! Route Planning Method:
The route calculation can be optimised for
different situations and vehicle types by
changing the planning method.
! Fast:
Calculates a route with the shortest tra-
vel time to your destination as a priority.
Usually the best selection for fast and
normal cars.
! Green:
Calculates a quick but fuel efficient
route based on the fuel consumption
data given in Route settings. Travel cost
and CO2
emission calculations are esti-
mations only. They cannot take eleva-
tions, curves and traffic conditions into
account.
p This item does not appear when the
vehicle profile is set to “Default
Lorry”.
! Short:
Calculates a route with the shortest dis-
tance to your destination as a priority.
Usually practical for pedestrians, cy-
clists or slow vehicles. Searching for a
short route regardless of the speed, this
route type is rarely practical for normal
vehicles.
! Economical:
For vehicle types where “Green” routing
is not available, this method combines
the benefits of “Fast” and “Short”. This
system calculates as if it were calculat-
ing the “Fast” route, but it takes other
roads as well to save fuel.
p This item is available for AVIC-F130
only.
! Easy:
Results in a route with fewer turns and
no difficult manoeuvres. With this op-
tion, you can make this system to take,
for example, the motorway instead of a
series of smaller roads or streets.
Changing road types used
To recalculate the current route with different
road type preferences, follow the steps below.
p To let the route fit your needs, you can also
set which road types are to be considered
for or to be excluded from the route if possi-
ble. Excluding a road type is a preference. It
does not necessarily mean total prohibi-
tion.
p If your destination can only be accessed
using some of the excluded road types,
they will be used but only as much as ne-
cessary. In this case a warning icon will be
shown on the route parameter, and the part
of the route not matching your preference
will be displayed in a different colour on
the map.

tions.
Selecting a new destination
when already having a route
If you already have a recommended route and

the “Edit Route” menu.
! Final Destination:
Touch this key to append the newly se-
lected destination at the end of the route.
