It is always an exciting feeling to receive a VMS device and everyone always just want to dive straight in to check out all the new features, to see what they love about it the most.

But this can be very overwhelming for our flagship portable offroad gps : the 3DX, since it is a totally different unit in terms of hardware but more so for it's software, which has been developed from the ground up, by ourselves.

So here is guide of things to do as you receive your new 3DX.

1. MANUAL: Go through the product manual which is available at the link below to understand all the basic functionality and features of the product.

2. CONNECT TO WI-FI: Go to settings from the home screen > Select Network & Internet > Select Wi-fi > Turn it on > Select your home network and Connect to it.


3. UPDATE: Buying the 3DX is like buying a service which keeps improving over time, in this case, getting new features over time. To get updates, all that needs to be done is to to go to settings from the home screen > scroll down to About device > Select Wireless update > Select Check for updates to make sure you are on the latest software version which will allow you to enjoy the latest features and fixes we might have added in the latest update.

Normally, you would receive a notification if there is an OTA (over the air) update available when you are connected to the Wi-fi  but it is always better to manually check using the aforementioned method, just in case.


4. FREE MAPS: Install the free zone maps and check out the paid topographical raster map versions available on our website. (You may need an external SD card depending on the size and number of maps you want to install on your unit)
