How To: Initial Vehicle Set Up

The first time you switch on your Avtex Tourer One you’ll be asked to set up your vehicle or towing profile. This screen will ask you to choose between Car, Caravan or Motorhome.

Note: If you’re wanting to look around the unit and don’t have your size and weight details ready, you can simply select ‘Car’ and continue to the main menu, as you can come back to the profile set up screen to add, edit and save profiles whenever you want. Getting back to the configuration screen to set up your vehicle, or add additional vehicles, is covered below.

Configuring a vehicle

Once you’ve selected your vehicle type you’ll be asked for your vehicle weight and dimensions, one dimension at a time, starting with Max. Height.

By default, Tourer One will ask for information in Feet & Inches, however you can change this by selecting ‘Units’, switching to your preferred measurement, and pressing ‘Save’.

Some commonly used sizes are provided as quick shortcuts above the number pad for you to use, in case these match your vehicle dimensions.

    1. Use either the quick shortcut sizes or number pad to key in the requested information

Once your maximum height, width, length and weight have been filled in you’ll be taken to the vehicle profile screen, showing all vehicle profiles currently stored in your sat nav. This screen will also display a preview of the selected profile with the size & weight parameters clearly displayed.

  1. If any of the displayed parameters are not accurate, select the spanner icon below, followed by the relevant dimension, and amend it accordingly.

Accessing the vehicle profile screen

There are two ways to access the vehicle profile screen from the main menu –
