GPS Not Found

When you first start your navigation device, you will hear the message �Signal too low�. This message means that your navigation device hasn�t yet located a reliable GPS signal.

Note: if you don�t specify a search radius, Destinator searches the whole map.

Show or Hide Symbol on Map

Lets you customize your POI list by showing or hiding the POI category symbols that you don�t want. When you hide a category a red mark appears.
