Overview: The Jensen NAV104 is an add-on GPS Navigation module for
select Jensen multimedia head units. The NAV104 is driven by iGo Primo software
featuring turn-by-turn audible/visual guidance with lane assist, 3D landmarks
and building graphics, plus TeleAtlas US maps with over 11 million POIs (points
of interest). The system also offers 19 on-screen display languages, and
text-to-speech recorded voice guidance in English, French and Spanish.
Compatibility: The Jensen NAV104 is designed specifically for select
2012 Jensen navigation-ready multimedia head units. The NAV104 is compatible
with the following Jensen multimedia head units (as of 5/9/2012).
Installation: The NAV104 hide-away add-on navigation module
should be installed under the back or front seat. It can also be installed in
the trunk, if necessary. The unit is supplied with a 13' SmartBus cable to
connect to your compatible Jensen multimedia head unit. The navigation
module features integrated mounting brackets to secure the unit in place (screws
not supplied). You should not install the NAV104 where it will come in contact
with water or direct sunlight.
TeleAtlas Map Data: The Jensen NAV104 provides map data of the United
States (including Alaska and Hawaii), plus Puerto Rico from TeleAtlas. The
TeleAtlas map database includes 11 million POIs (points-of-interest). The map
database was created using high-resolution aerial and land based data
collection. The map data is stored on the included 4GB SD card, which must be
inserted into the hide-away add-on navigation module and remain installed during
Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated.
While the database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of
its release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information
that is maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road
names may change over time.
Map Updates: The NAV104 comes with a "Latest Map Guarantee"
which must be used within 90 days of initial activation. It is easy to keep the
navigation system up to date. Simply download new map data from
www.naviextras.com onto the included 4GB SD memory card.
iGo Primo Software: The NAV104 uses iGo primo software which provides
turn-by-turn visual and voice assistance to direct you to your selected
destination. The software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any
destination available on the included navigation map. The iGo primo software's
computer considers vehicle speed and heading changes, together with longitude
and latitude information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position
on a digital map.
GPS (Global Position System): The iGo primo software uses Global
Positioning System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway map database to
calculate and display travel directions. The system's GPS antenna receives
signals from a constellation of 24 satellites orbiting the earth and uses the
strongest signals to determine your position to within meters. Signals from GPS
satellites are used to determine the vehicle location. Three (good) or four
(best) satellites must be received to accurately determine location. The GPS
reception status is indicated by the GPS symbol on the map.
GPS Antenna: The Jensen NAV104 features an external GPS
antenna. The antenna features a 16.25' cable and a magnetic base. The preferred
antenna location, free from obstruction) is on the top of the vehicle (roof or
trunk area). When placed on the dashboard of a vehicle, performance may be
reduced due to obstruction caused by the vehicle's windshield or roof. The
antenna measures 1.375" wide x 0.5" tall x 1.5625" deep.
TTS (Text-to-Speech) Voice Guidance: The Jensen NAV104 offers TTS
(text-to-speech) voice guidance in English, French, or Spanish. While the
navigation system is speaking, you can adjust the volume from your compatible
Jensen multimedia head unit. The Navigation volume will remain at this level and
when done speaking will return to the previous source at the volume level set
for that source.
Note: While navigating, other sources may be selected and listened
to such as AM-FM Tuner, CD, etc. Navigation voice prompts will still be
heard automatically, although the navigation map cannot be seen.
Map Screen: The NAV104 displays an on-screen map on your
compatible Jensen multimedia head unit that shows your vehicle's
current position (a red arrow by default), the recommended route (an orange
line), the surrounding map area, and your destination as a checkered flag. The
on-screen map shows streets, roads, and highways in a way that is similar to how
a paper road map show them. A road's width and colors corresponds to their
importance, so you can easily tell a freeway from a small street. When
navigating a route, the top section of the map screen shows information about
your next route maneuver and the next street or the next city/town. When
approaching a turn, the map screen will zoom in and raise the view angle to let
you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the next turn is at
a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see
the road in front of you. The map also displays data; such as the posted speed
limit, your current speed, current time, distance to your destination, time left
before you reach your destination, and your arrival time.
- 2D/3D Map Mode: The NAV104 allows you to view
its on-screen map in a 2D (two-dimensional) or 3D (three-dimensional) view.
Similar to paper road maps, the 2D mode, shows you streets, roads, and
elevation by color. In 3D mode, you can see the altitude and elevations
differences. You can distinguish between valleys, mountains, and elevated
roads. In selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed.
- Color Mode: The navigation map screen uses different
color themes (Day/Night) during the day and during the night for both the
map and the menu screen. Daytime colors are similar to paper road maps, and
the menus are bright. The nigh color themes use dark colors for large
objects to keep the average brightness of the screen low. You can also set
the navigation unit to switch between daytime and night color modes
automatically based on the current time and GPS position.
3D Objects: The Jensen NAV104 will display 3D objects on your
compatible Jensen multimedia head unit. 3D terrain map data shows changes in
terrain, elevations or depressions in the land when you view the map in 2D, and
use it to plot the route map in 3D when you navigate. Hills and mountains are
shown in the background of the 3D map, and illustrated by color and shading on
the 2D map. Complex intersections and vertically isolated roads (such as
overpasses or bridges) are displayed in 3D. Landmarks are 3D artistic or
block representations of prominent or well-known objects.
Lane Information & Signposts: When navigating on multilane roads, it
is important to take the appropriate lane in order to follow the recommended
route. If lane information is available in the map data, iGO primo displays the
lanes and their directions using small arrows at the bottom of the map.
Highlighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take. Where additional
information is available, signposts substitute arrows. Signposts are displayed
at the top of the map. The color and style of the signposts are similar to the
real ones you can see above road or by the roadside. They show the available
destinations and the number of the road the lane leads to. All signposts look
similar when cruising (when there is no recommended route). When navigating a
route, only the signpost that points to the lane(s) to be taken is displayed in
vivid colors; all others are darker.
Junction View: If you are approaching a freeway exit or a complex
intersection and the needed information exists, the map is replaced with a 3D
view of the junction. The lanes you need to take are displayed with arrows.
Signposts can also be present if information is available.
Where Am I?: This screen contains information about the
current position (or approximately the last known position if GPS reception is
not available) and a button to search for POIs nearby.
Destination Search: You can select your destination by entering an
address or selecting a place-of-interest (POI), a location on the map, or one of
your Favorite destinations. You can also look up your recent destinations from
the Smart History, or enter a coordinate.

Route Calculation: The Jensen NAV104 calculates your route
based on your Vehicle Type, Route Method, and Avoidances.
- Vehicle Type: You select what type of vehicle you are
driving, so the navigation unit can determine the best route based on your
vehicle type (Car, Truck, Emergency, Bus, or Taxi).
- Route Method: You can choose which route method
(Fastest, Shortest, Green, Economical, or Easy) the navigation unit should
use when calculating your route.
- Fastest: give a quick route, if you can travel at
or near the speed limit on all roads. Usually the best section for fast
and normal cars
- Shortest: gives a route that has the smallest total
distance of all possible routes. It can be practical for slow vehicles
- Green: gives a quick, but full efficient route
based on the fuel consumption data you provide
- Easy: results in a route with fewer turns and no
- Avoidances: You can tell the navigation unit to avoid
certain types of roads along your calculated route, such as - Highways,
Tolls, Carpool/HOV, Unpaved Roads, and/or Ferries.
Way Points: You can add intermediate destinations along your main
Alert Point: You can save any map location as an alert point (for
example a speed camera or railroad crossing).
Itinerary: While navigating, you can view a turn-by-turn
list (itinerary) of upcoming maneuvers.
Trip Computer: The Trip Computer provides information about
your vehicle speed, trip related timing, elevation, odometer, and clock
Automatic Route Recalculation: The unit will automatically
recalculate your route if you stray from the navigation unit's previously
Route Simulation: You can preview all the route information
and simulate travel along a projected route.
