parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged. The
pink parking brake wire is used to connect to your parking brake light wire (video
on the LCD monitor can only be displayed when this unit's pink PRK SW wire senses
that the parking brake has been engaged in the vehicle).

Navigation Mapping Software: The integrated map database (by
TeleAtlas) used by the Jensen VM9725BT was created using high-resolution aerial
and land based data collection. Navigation data is stored on the unit's
preloaded 4GB microSD-card for quick access and response. The VM925BT provides map
coverage of the United States (all 50 states), Canada, and Puerto Rico. The
Jensen VM9725BT's integrated iGo Primo navigation software provides turn-by-turn
visual and voice assistance to direct you to your selected destination. The
built-in software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination
available on the included navigation map.
Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While
this 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: It is easy to keep the navigation system up to
date. Simply purchased & download new map data from the
naviextras.com online portal, store the updated map data on a microSD card, and
insert it into the Jensen VM9725BT via the front-panel microSD card slot. You have 90
days from purchase to download the latest available map free of charge.
GPS (Global Position System): Jensen's built-in navigation
helps you find your way to your destination with an integrated GPS receiver &
external GPS antenna. The Jensen VM9725BT features a built-in SiRFprima GPS
receiver and includes an external magnetic GPS antenna. The VM9725BT uses Global
Position System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway map database to
calculate and display vehicle positioning and travel direction. The VM9725BT
considers vehicle speed an heading changes, together with longitude and latitude
information, to accurately determine vehicle heading and position on a digital
map. Signal from GPS satellites are used to determine the vehicle location.
Three (good) or four (best) satellites must be receive to accurately determine
location. This unit does not transmit your GPS position, so others cannot track
On-Screen Map: The unit's on-screen map shows your vehicle's
current position (a blue 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 Jensen VM9725BT 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.
Lane Information & Signposts: The Jensen VM9725BT's navigation
map offers helpful lane information & signpost guidance.
- Lane Information: When navigation 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, the map
screen will display the lanes and their directions using small arrows at the
bottom of the map. High lighted arrows represent the lanes you need to take.
- Signposts: 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 the road or by the roadside, They show the available destinations
and the number of the road the lane leads to.
- 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
- Tunnel View: When entering a tunnel, the map is
replaced with a generic tunnel image so that surface roads and buildings
cannot distract you.
Audible Alerts: The Jensen VM9725BT offers various audible
alerts and functions to help you get to your destination safely.
- Voice Guidance (Text-to-Speech): In addition to graphic
directions, the VM9725BT provides voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions.
You can select from English, French, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese
audible languages. The volume of the voice prompts can be increased with
increases in speed to overcome road noise. Voice guidance can be turned off
if you prefer.
- Safety Alert: This function can warn you when you
approach road safety cameras, school zones, or railroad crossings (if
available). You can also add your own alert points. Beeps or the spoken type
of alert will be heard when you are approaching of these points.
- Speed Limit Warning: Some maps may contain information
about the speed limits of certain road segments. The VM9725BT provides an
audible warning if you exceed the recommended speed limit.
Note: While navigating, other sources may be selected
and listened to; such as AM/FM Tuner, CD, USB, iPod, & Bluetooth. The unit
will mute the audio of the other source during navigation voice-prompts.

current position (or approximately the last known position if GPS reception is
not available) and a button to search for POIs nearby.
