Navigation manual

Postby 777jim » Sun Apr 25, 2010 11:39 pm



Hi all,
just brought home my new 2009 Wing. I was going through the manuals and as luck would have it, the Navigation manual was not with the package. Nuts! Called the dealer and they ordered one for me, but that will take 2 weeks to get here, :roll: I will put some more pressure on them, maybe they have something they can copy, in the mean time....Anyone out there have something they can email just to get me started? I don't need the whole thing
as there is a manual coming anyway.

Thanks

Tell your dealer to give you one from another bike. He could at least give one to you to use over the day(s) he is closed, so you can get the main points.

Thanks Dawg,
That's exactly what I would have done. He doesn't have any more Wings in stock.

Bad on me! Never thought about a dealer not having any Wings around!

The dealer finally copied one from their company training manuals. Lots of paper, but good on them for doing that for me.
They have my manual on order.
I love riding this bike, don't know why it took me so long to get one.

In addition to the manual you can check out the December 2009 edition of "Wing World" they have a pretty good article on how to set up the GPS system and includes many tips.

Have a safe ride.

Thanks Roger,
is Wing World an on-line magazine. If not, where can I get it?

Thanks again,
I did join that group a few days ago.
Havn't had time to check out all that is available to me.
I will look it up.

Cheers Jim

Hi 777jim! Like you, when I picked up my 2007 GL1800 with Navi from a broker in Florida, the Owner's Manual and Navi manual was not with the bike (previous owner still has those). I contacted previous owner (who lives in Canada) about the manuals (and missing backrest), and was able to get only the backrest so far. He promises to mail me the manuals and spare key for the bike.

My question is this: I discovered how to set up the Navi in miles, rather than kilos, and it works perfectly for me. Is there a way to set the odometer to miles rather than kilometers?

Thanks,
