of no operation.
Hard-Key Controls: The unit also features rotary volume and tuning
knobs, along with push-button controls along the left and right side of the LCD
Parking Brake Detection: The CarShow Navigation & Multimedia head unit
contains a built-in DVD player and integrated LCD monitor, which is not intended for viewing
while driving. The unit's video player is disabled when the vehicle is in motion through a
connection to your vehicle's parking brake.
Rear Seat Entertainment: The CarShow Navigation & Multimedia
head unit is compatible with factory rear seat audio/video entertainment. The selected
video source for the unit's rear video output can be displayed on your vehicle's
factory overhead monitor, even though you will not be able to view it on the
unit's built-in LCD monitor while you are driving. The same audio from the
vehicle speakers will play through the factory rear seat audio. You can continue
to use your vehicle's rear-seat entertainment controls.
Navigation Mapping Software: The map database (by TeleAtlas)
used by the CarShow CS-GM1010-P11 was created using high-resolution aerial and
land based data collection. Navigation data is stored on a pre-installed 4GB
SDHC memory card for quick access and response. The head unit provides map
coverage of the entire United States (all 50 states). The unit'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
Note: The pre-installed 4GB SDHC memory card must remain in the head unit
during navigation. If the SDHC memory card is removed, you will not be able to access
the head unit's navigation functions. When you reinsert the SDHC memory card, the
head unit must be reset to restore navigation functions. The navigation
content on the SDHC memory card contains a License Code. This code cannot be moved to
different cards. If the SDHC memory card is lost or damaged in anyway , it will
render this Navigation system inoperable. Damaged or deleted files on the
navigation SDHC memory card are not covered under the product warranty.
Map Updates: 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. It is easy to keep the navigation system up to
date. Simply download new map data from
naviextras.com, store the updated map data on a SD card and insert it
into the head unit via the front-panel SD card slot.
GPS (Global Position System): The unit's built-in navigation
helps you find your way to your destination with an integrated GPS receiver &
external GPS antenna. The CarShow CS-GM1010-P11 features a built-in SiRFprima GPS
receiver and includes an external magnetic GPS antenna. The head unit uses
Global Position System (GPS) satellites, and a digital roadway map database to
calculate and display vehicle positioning and travel direction. The unit
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
Note: This unit does not transmit your GPS position, so
others cannot track you.
On-Screen Map: The unit's on-screen map 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 shows 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 navigation head unit 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 night 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 unit's navigation map
offers helpful lane information & signpost guidance.
- Lane Information: When driving 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. Highlighted 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 CS-GM1010-P11 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 receiver 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 head unit provides an
audible warning if you exceed the recommended speed limit.
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.
Find Menu: The Find Menu gives you many different ways to
choose your destination or insert a waypoint in your current route. An on-screen
keyboard appears to allow you to enter your destination from one of the
