3 Functionality

3.1 Route
To plan a route from an automatically determined current position (GPS receiver is switched on)
select a destination point on the map or determine it in the program menu. It is also possible to
mark the starting point on the map or set it in the program menu, when there is no established
GPS connection.



3.1.1 Planning a route from a position determined automatically
1. When the GPS/GLONASS receiver is switched on and connection with satellites is established
the current position is determined automatically. To have a route planned from this position select
an object which will be the destination point by tapping on the map. Use “+”/“–” buttons to zoom
in/out for easier finding the object in the map.

2. Having selected the object, press “Cursor” in the bottom part of the screen (Fig.5).

3. Press “Go!” in the bottom left corner of the screen (Fig. 6). The program will automatically
create a route to the point.




                 Fig. 5                                                    Fig. 6

Note! On maps, which do not contain the information for route planning (roads, buildings, other
objects), the route will be displayed as a straight line connecting the current location and the
selected destination point.



3.1.2 Planning a route basing on search results
All route points can be as well set manually in the program menu. The program allows several
options for finding objects in the map.




8
Navitel Navigator - User Guide
To proceed to these options, press “Menu” in the bottom left corner of the “Map” screen (Fig.7)
and select “Find” (Fig.8).




                 Fig. 7                                                       Fig. 8



3.1.2.1 By address
1. Select “Menu” → “Find” → “By Address”.

2. Select country, settlement (city, town), street, a building in the street or another street that
intersects it (Fig.9).

Entry line will be displayed after pressing the corresponding data field. All parameters must be
selected from the prompts dropping down at typing under the entry line. The virtual keyboard can
be shown and hidden using the keyboard icon in the top right corner of the screen (Fig.10).




                 Fig. 9                                                       Fig. 10

A field becomes active only when the previous field has been filled out. If a field is not active when
the previous parameter is set, this means that the map does not contain such information.

For setting a partial address, for instance for finding a street, set the address till the street level
and press “Result” in the top right corner of the screen (Fig. 9).

When all address parameters have been set, the object will be shown in the “My route” screen
(Fig. 6).




                                                                                                     9
Navitel Navigator - User Guide
3. Press “Go!” in the bottom left corner of the “My route”
screen to plan a route to the selected object, or press
the address field (or object name field) to proceed to
the “Properties” screen (Fig. 11) where you can choose
to press “Go!” to plan a route to the selected point or set
it as a starting point of the route by pressing “Set start”.

“Route through” and “Finish” are active only when
there is an existing route. Pressing of “Route through”
adds the point to the existing route. When several points
are added to the route the last added point becomes the                        Fig. 11
first one after the starting point. Pressing “Finish” makes the marked point the destination point of
the route. The point previously determined as the destination becomes the last route point before
the new destination point.



3.1.2.2 Nearest places
It is important to determine the reference point in this search option.

A reference point is a point in relation to which the nearest places will be found.

1. Select “Menu” → “Find” → “Nearest Places”.

2. For search of an object select one of the following
reference points (Fig. 12):

“Current location” – search of an object near the
current position (the option is available only when
GPS/GLONASS connection is established);

“Cursor” – search of an object near the cursor on the
map;

“Postal address” – search of an object near a particular
                                                                            Fig. 12
address;

“By route” (active when there is an existing route) –
search of an object along the route;

“Finish” (active when there is an existing route) –
search of an object near the destination point;

“History” – selection of an object form the list of objects
that have been previously searched for.

3. Select the object category and subcategory where
                                                                             Fig. 13
available (Fig.13).




10
4. Start typing the name of the object and select the
object from the prompts (Fig. 14).

The virtual keyboard can be shown and hidden using
the keyboard icon in the top right corner of the screen.

All the objects are listed according to distance from the
reference point: the nearest objects are shown at the top
of the list, the farthest are at the bottom of the list.

5. Press “Go!” in the bottom left corner of the “My route”             Fig. 14
screen (Fig. 15) to plan a route to the selected object, or
tap on the object name field to proceed to the “Properties” screen (Fig. 16) where you can
choose:




                  Fig. 15                                                    Fig. 16

“Go!” – the object becomes the destination point. If there is an existing route all its points except
for the starting point will be deleted;

“Set start” – the object becomes the starting point of the route;

“Route through” (when there is an existing route) – the object becomes a route point. When
several points are added, the last added one becomes the first route point after the starting point;

“Finish” (when there is an existing route) – the object becomes the destination point of the route.
All route points will be retained, and the point previously set as the destination point becomes the
last route point before the new destination point.



3.1.2.3 Friends
This search option helps to see the current location of
friends added in the “Navitel.Friends” service, and to
plan a route to meet them.

1. Select “Menu” → “Find” → “Friends”.

2. Select a friend from the list (Fig.17).

                                                                              Fig. 17

                                                                                                  11
A screen will display information on current location of
the friend (Fig.18).

3. Press “Go!” in the bottom left corner of the screen
(Fig.18) to plan a route to the friend’s location, or tap on
the address field to proceed to the “Properties” screen,
where you can choose:

point. If there is an existing route all its points except for
the starting point will be deleted;                                            Fig. 18

“Set start” – the friend’s location becomes the starting point of the route;

“Route through” (when there is an existing route) – the friend’s location becomes a route point.
When several points are added the last added one becomes the first route point after the starting
point;

“Finish” (when there is an existing route) – the friend’s location becomes the destination point of
the route. All route points will be retained, and the point previously set as the destination point
becomes the last route point before the new destination point.
