You may have purchased a Jaguar X-Type that did not come with factory-installed navigation, but you are now considering adding a GPS yourself. Having a GPS can be useful for drivers who frequently travel to new and unfamiliar locations. Many GPS devices also offer additional benefits, including a points of interest database that shows entertainment and restaurants on the map, Bluetooth hands-free calling, a photo viewer and a music player. Most models of GPS devices can be installed within minutes.

  1. 1

    Set up the windshield or dashboard mount that came with the GPS. If your GPS uses a windshield mount, wipe the windshield so that it is free of dust and dirt. Dampen the suction cup on the mount, then press the cup against the glass firmly.

    If you are using a dashboard mount, peel off the protective paper covering the back of the mount. Press this sticky side of the mount on a flat part of the X-Type's dashboard.

  2. 2

    Charge the GPS using the method described in the device's owner manual. If you are using a vehicle charging cable, connect one end to the GPS, then connect the cable's other end to the X-Type's power adaptor. If the GPS came with a USB cable, or you have one available, many models charge when connected a computer.

  3. 3

    Place the GPS in the installed mount. You may need to press the device inward or downward until it locks in place.

  4. 4

    Drive the X-Type into an open area with an unobstructed view of the sky. When you use the GPS for the first time, it may take five minutes for the device to gain a satellite signal.
