Quick Start Guide
The Lowrance XOG GPS operates on an internal rechargeable battery. Battery charge is probably low at time of purchase. The first time you use XOG you should connect it to power. XOG can be powered in several ways: Cigarette lighter cable, using 12-volt vehicle power. Shown at right. USB-PC cable, using power supplied by personal computer. Optional AC adaptor, using 120-volt AC household power. Battery charge status is displayed on the Main Menu. See page 6.

When you connect XOG to a computer the first time, you can register the unit at the on-line MapSelect store in order to purchase and download additional maps. XOG comes pre-loaded with turn-by-turn road maps to guide you while driving. The MapSelect store provides additional content for your out3
door travels. You can also purchase pre-programmed maps on an SD card from your Lowrance dealer. To access the MapSelect store, you must first insert an SD card in XOG's card slot. When connected to a PC, XOG adds a file to the card that automatically sends your web browser to the MapSelect store. If you prefer, you can manually log-on at www.mapselect.com. You can also log on manually after you register. To connect XOG to a PC and register online: 1. Insert an SD card in XOG's card slot. 2. Connect the USB-to-PC cable to a USB port on your PC. 3. Connect the other end of this cable to the mini-USB port on XOG. 4. Power XOG on as described above. When using Microsoft Windows, your PC will recognize XOG and assign it a drive letter. 5. A Windows dialog box will ask if you want to connect to the internet and
visit the Lowrance online map store. Click on this link to access the MapSelect store and registration site. 6. Follow the on-screen prompts to register your XOG and set up a MapSelect account. More information about the MapSelect store can be found on-line using the Help function.
Menus and Main Functions
You can tap on-screen buttons or other menu items on XOG to quickly access features. Most features are accessed from XOG's Main Menu. To access the Main Menu, tap the on-screen MAIN MENU button.
Main Menu button Speak button Auto Zoom button Overlay Data Hide button Location-POI Information button Map Display Toolbar Cursor Map Orientation button
XOG's map page control tools.
To access the cursor and Map Display Toolbar, tap anywhere on the map page. With the cursor displayed, you can press and "drag" to pan the map.
Map button displays your current position on a moving map, including information on your current route. Music button lets you to choose the audio play list, adjust volume and set various music play controls. Options button has three pages with settings that control operations and provide additional information. Find button has three pages of search options designed to help you find destinations quickly and easily. Main Menu also contains power and battery indicators.
A power plug symbol appears when external power is connected. It flashes while the battery charges. Charging is complete when flashing stops. Disconnect external power and a battery symbol appears. Four green cells show a full battery. A single red cell warns that the battery is low.
The mount secures the unit to glass or other smooth surfaces. To attach the mount: 1. Press the suction cup against a clean surface. 2. Push the locking lever toward the base of the mount. 3. To remove it, disengage the locking lever and pull on the suction release tab.
To attach unit, engage bottom edge to bottom of mount. Push back on unit until it snaps into place.
4. To dismount XOG, push the release tab at top of unit up slightly. Then, lift the unit forward and out of the bracket.
CAUTION Do not leave the unit unattended on an automobile dashboard. When the GPS is not in use, protect it from theft and heat by storing it in an unobtrusive location away from direct sunlight. In warm seasons the temperature can become hot enough to prevent the GPS unit from operating. When the GPS is not in use for an extended period of time we recommend bringing it indoors and storing it at room temperature.
When mounting a GPS unit in an automobile you must avoid any installation that obscures instruments and controls or restricts the driver's view through the windows. Avoid placing the GPS where it could be propelled by an airbag. Some areas may restrict mounting any electronic device in any location on an automobile dash or windshield. Check local laws before using these mounts. Check the suction mount for adhesion each time you use the unit and reinstall it. This is a portable mounting device and the normal heating and cooling cycle of a car's interior can loosen the seal. A loose seal could allow the unit to fall or come loose during vehicle operations.
Determine Your Position Before Traveling
XOG must lock-on to multiple GPS satellites to determine your current position and navigate. This requires a clear view of the sky, unobstructed by structures or heavy foliage.
When you begin a trip, make sure XOG can "see" the sky and wait for it to determine a position before you start driving or walking. A question mark flashes over the current position arrow to indicate the unit has not calculated its position. XOG usually has good satellite reception through automobile windows. Some windshields have heat reflective properties or defrosters that block GPS signal reception. Consult your vehicle manufacturer to determine if your car has this special glass installed. If so, you may need to mount the unit near another window.
The units map page displays where you are as well as your surroundings.

A Warning dialog will appear when the Routing Options feature is accessed, stating, "Changing routing preferences can drastically alter routing results and may significantly increase time to calculate routes." If the values are changed significantly and the unit begins generating poor routes try using Reset to Defaults. The Recalculate Route button can be used to automatically generate a new route to the same destination using new preferences. 32
Cross-Traffic Turns: Use this option to avoid turns across busy lanes of Toll Roads: By default, toll roads have a fairly high value in routes gen-
erated by the unit. Drag the slider all the way to the right and the unit will not use toll roads.
Interstates: The default setting is designed to avoid Interstates for short trips but if the unit is sending you to the highway too often try setting the unit to Avoid Interstates. Turn Preview
The Turn Preview checkbox in the Avoid on Routs screen controls whether or not the unit displays a Turn Preview. The Turn Preview screen includes a close-up of the turn while data boxes provide text instructions about the turn. Access the Turn Preview for any turn in a route from the Directions List. Transfer Data SD cards can be used to store and transfer GPS data files recorded on the unit. To transfer data to and from the SD card select TRANSFER DATA. A dialog box will appear asking, "Transfer data which way?" The two choices are: Save or Load. When you press LOAD or SAVE the Transfer My Data screen will appear. Use the dropdown box to select the filename of the GPS data file you want to load. Use the Filename text box to enter a name for the data being saved. 33
GPS Simulator The GPS Simulator simulates the navigation of a route. If the unit is in Simulator mode and you reach a speed of 15 m.p.h. or greater, and the unit acquires a satellite lock, the unit will leave Simulator mode. If the unit does not have satellite lock it will prompt you to simulate when navigation begins. Satellites screen Press the SATELLITES button located in the top left corner of the Main Menu screen to access the Satellites screen. Satellites button
The Satellites screen (left) provides information on the satellites the unit is monitoring to determine its position. Enable-Disable GPS: Turns the GPS feature on and off. If the GPS fea-
ture is Disabled it WILL NOT achieve satellite lock. The GPS feature must be Enabled for the unit to get a position fix. 34
Current Position Lock
Two buttons on the left side of the Satellites screen indicate the quality of the units position lock. If 2D or 3D is not highlighted the unit may not have a satellite lock.
2D lock does not include altitude. The unit must receive reliable signals from 3 satellites to establish a 2D lock. 3D means the unit has achieved a more reliable lock, including altitude. The unit must receive signals from 4 satellites to establish a 3D lock. EPE (Estimated Position Error)
The Estimated Position Error, or EPE, represents the expected error from a benchmark location. If the EPE shows 50 feet, then the position shown by the unit is estimated to be within 50 feet of your actual location.
A white circle serves as a graphical view of the satellites overhead. Each satellite is shown on the circular chart relative to your position. The GPS receiver is tracking satellites that are in light blue type. The receiver has not locked onto a satellite if the number is in dark blue.
Beneath the Satellite Display are the coordinates in latitude and longitude.
Searching, Finding and Navigating
When Find is selected from the Main Menu, the first of three Find menus will appear.
The unit can search for locations before it has acquired a position lock. If a search is conducted before its position is determined, the unit will display distance and bearing from the unit's last known location. In the Find menus, search options are divided into specific POI categories: Gas, ATMs, Lodging, Restaurants, Shopping, Attractions and Airports have their own separate search screens. Use the Address menu to search for POIs by street name, city, State, Province or zip code. Keyboard Search options in the Find menus require data, such as a shop name, address, State or Province, to be entered. A keyboard will be used to enter the information. The header of each Find Address screen will indicate what type of information should be entered. 36
Choosing New Destinations while Navigating When navigating and an alternate destination is selected a dialog box will appear asking, "Which would you like to do?" You will have three choices: Detour here, New final destination or Cancel old navigation.
Detour here: Navigates to the new location.
Once you arrive, the unit will resume navigating to the original destination.
New final destination: Will add a new location to the end of a route. Cancel old navigation: Will stop navigating to the original destination
and start navigating to a new location.
The unit can use optional "plug and play" map cards available through LEI, the source for Lowrance accessories. Optional maps include: NauticPath USA marine charts, Fishing Hot Spots Elite lake maps, Navionics marine charts, FreedomMaps for North America and Europe, and LakeMaster ProMaps.
Caution: The unit is designed to be used inside an automobile. The mounting bracket included with the XOG package is not designed for boats, motorcycles or off-road vehicles. These installation types require an optional bracket and cradle designed for rugged outdoor use. The unit's case is not waterproof. If used in wet conditions the unit must be protected from moisture.
The unit also can display custom maps prepared by LEI's MapCreate topographical mapping software and Lowrance Enhanced Lake Maps that can be downloaded free from the Lowrance web site, www.lowrance.com. Turn-by-turn navigation does not work with any of these optional maps. When using optional maps, you must search for POIs using the SEARCH ALL POIS BY NAME button in the Find 2 menu. Other search categories will not work. If a POI symbol is selected on the map screen with the cursor, pressing the Location-POI Information button displays a POI information screen for that item. 44
Navigation Modes Point-to-point navigation creates a straight-line navigation course between you and another point on the map screen. To switch to point-to-point mode, press the MAIN MENU button and select OPTIONS. From the Options menu select the NAVIGATION MODE button to display the Navigation Mode screen. Turn-by-turn is selected as the default setting. When Point-to-Point is selected, a dialog appears asking if you want to change modes. Choose YES and close the Navigation Mode screen. Settings in the Map Data pull-down menu do not need to be changed unless a Navionics card is used. When a Navionics card is inserted, the Map Data pull-down menu becomes active. Scroll down and select Navionics, now close the Navigation Mode screen. To switch back to turn-by-turn, go to the Navigation Mode screen and select TURN BY TURN.
Enhanced Lake Maps U.S. inland lake contour maps can be downloaded for free from www.lowrance.com. In addition to underwater contour features, these maps show shoreline features, small islands and various bottom struc54
tures. More detail appears as the screen is zoomed in. Underwater features on man-made lakes reflect conditions prior to inundation. The amount of detail varies from lake to lake.
Underwater features, such as bridges, old creek channels, roads and other items can be identified with the cursor.
FreedomMaps and MapCreate Mapping Data MapCreate Topo software can be used to create custom maps for loading onto SD cards. MapCreate version 6.3 includes topographic elevations for 49 states, excluding Alaska. MapCreate version 7 has elevations for all 50 states. Topographic information is displayed as major and minor contour lines with numbers showing the elevation above sea level. The same data is available in plug and play FreedomMaps.
