Caring for Your nvi
Your nvi contains sensitive electronic components that can be permanently damaged if exposed to excessive shock or vibration. To minimize the risk of damage to your nvi, avoid dropping your unit and operating it in high shock/vibration environments.
Cleaning the Unit
The nvi is constructed of high quality materials and does not require user maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the units outer casing (not the touch screen) using a cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution and then wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic components.
Cleaning the Touch Screen
Clean the touch screen with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner, if needed. Apply the liquid to the cloth and then gently wipe the touch screen.
To get updated safety camera information:
You can purchase a new region at any time, and you can extend existing subscriptions at any time. Each region that you purchase has its own expiration date.
Your unit contains an internal, non-removable, lithium-ion battery. Contact your local waste disposal department for information on properly disposing of the unit.
The battery icon in the upper right corner of the Menu page indicates the status of the internal battery.
Battery charging or connected to external power Battery fully charged
Your nvis battery should last 4 to 8 hours depending on usage. The battery gauge indicates the status of the battery. To extend the battery life, reduce the time the backlight stays on. Touch > Display > Backlight Timeout. See page 47. To extend the battery life, close the antenna when you do not need to receive GPS signals. To maximize the life of the lithium-ion battery, do not leave your nvi direct sunlight and avoid prolonged exposure to excessive heat. Do not leave your nvi exposed in an unattended vehicle on a hot day. To prevent damage, remove it from the vehicle; or store it out of direct sunlight, such as in the glove box.
Periodically, you might notice that the battery gauge is not completely accurate. To increase the accuracy of the battery gauge, fully discharge the battery and then fully charge it without interrupting the charging. For best results, do not unplug the nvi until it is totally charged.
For information about the internal, non-removable, lithium-ion battery, see page 66, the Battery Warning section of the product information sheet that came in the box, and www.garmin.com/safety.
About Satellite Signals
Your nvi must acquire satellite signals to operate. If you are indoors, near tall buildings or trees, or in a parking garage, the nvi cannot acquire satellites. Go outside to an area free from tall obstructions to use your nvi, or close the antenna to turn off GPS and use it indoors. When the nvi has acquired satellite signals, the signal strength bars on the Menu page are green When it loses satellite signals, the bars turn red or disappear.
Garmin 20052006 67
Note: The Garmin nvi has no user-serviceable parts. Should you ever encounter a problem with your unit, take it to an authorized Garmin dealer for repairs. Note: The nvi is fastened shut with screws. Any attempt to open the case to change or modify the unit in any way voids your warranty and may result in permanent damage to the equipment.
