Important Safety Information

Before installing and using the Cobra 7700 Pro system, please read these general 

warnings and precautions. Without reading this important safety information, the user 

may be placed in a dangerous situation or may damage the unit before having any 

practical use from it. It is strongly recommended to read this entire manual to be familiar 

with the system’s features, and to know how to operate it. 

WARNING SYMBOLS AND STATEMENTS

Please pay special attention to the WARNING symbols and statements in this manual. 

 

WARNING 

Statements identify conditions that could result in personal injury or 

 

loss of life.

 

WARNINGS:

•  DO NOT

 mount the unit over airbag panels or within airbag expansion spaces. 

The force of an expanding airbag can thrust objects in its path toward the driver or 

passengers with injurious result.

•  DO NOT

 think this 7700 Pro  is a substitute for personal judgment. The route sug-

gestions should never supersede any local traffic regulation, personal judgment or 

knowledge of safe driving practices. Before making any maneuvers suggested by the 

7700 Pro  system (for example, a U-turn or a left turn), verify that the maneuver can 

be legally and safely completed. Do not follow route suggestions if they suggest an 

unsafe or illegal maneuver, would place the vehicle in an unsafe situation or would 

route the vehicle into an area that could be unsafe.

•  DO NOT

 program this 7700 Pro while driving. Only a passenger should operate con-

trols or program the unit while the vehicle is in motion. The driver should not program 

the system unless the vehicle is parked in a safe location.

•  ONLY

 glance at the screen when necessary and safe to do so. Listen to the computer 

voice guidance. If prolonged viewing is necessary, pull off the road to a safe location.

•  DO NOT

 depend on this 7700 Pro  system to locate emergency services (such as 

police, fire stations, hospitals and clinics). The database may not include all emergency 

service providers. Use judgment and ask for directions in these situations.

•  DO NOT

 position the unit in a location that obstructs the driver’sview of the road, 

instruments or controls to operate the vehicle.

•  DO NOT

 drive the vehicle unless the unit is securely attached to the windshield with 

the supplied bracket and suction cup or is fastened by other reliable means to keep it 

from becoming a projectile hazard inside the vehicle in the event of a violent maneu-

ver or collision.

•  DO NOT

 disassemble or modify the system; personal injury or damage could result. If 

a problem occurs, stop using the system immediately and contact Cobra. Changes or 

modifications to the system may void its compliance with FCC rules and make it illegal 

to use.

•  DO

 position the unit so the screen can be viewed with just a quick glance.

•  DO

 set the volume at a level that will allow the hearing of outside traffic and 

emergency services.

CAUTION SYMBOLS AND STATEMENTS

Please pay special attention to the CAUTION symbols and statements in this manual. 

 

CAUTION 

Statements identify conditions that could cause damage to the system  

 

or other equipment.

 

 

CAUTIONS:

•  The user is responsible for operating this product wisely. This 7700 Pro unit is intended 

for use only as a navigational aid and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of 

other information. Be aware of conditions around the vehicle and compare them to 

the information provided by the 7700 Pro system.

•  The Global Positioning System is provided and operated by the U.S. government, 

which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. That system is subject to 

changes, which could affect the accuracy and performance of this unit.

•  This unit is not waterproof. Do not allow liquids to splash on it nor expose it to rain 

during operation or transfer from vehicle to vehicle.

•  This unit can be operated in temperatures between 14°F and 140°F (-10°C and 60°C).

•  The 7700 Pro’s map database provides information on suggested routes without 

regard to some factors that may affect the user’s driving experience. For example, 

the system does not reflect all road detours, closures or construction, some road 

characteristics (such as road surface, slope or grade, weight or height restrictions, 

etc.), weather conditions and similar factors. Use personal judgment or the navigation 

system’s detour function to develop an alternate route if necessary.

•  Dismount the unit when parked. This will not only minimize the chance of theft but 

will also reduce the unit’s exposure to extreme temperatures and strong sunlight 

which can shorten the life of the internal components.

To utilize the AURA™ Camera database you will need to register your  

7700 Pro and perform a download. Please refer to ‘Registering your 7700 Pro,  

‘System Requirements and Software Installation’ later in this Quick Start Guide  

for further information.

Start Up

1. Charging the internal battery 

To begin, make sure the battery ON/OFF switch on the rear 

of the unit is switched to “ON”. Although the 7700 Pro can 

be charged using the cigarette lighter in your vehicle, a 

complete charge is more easily achieved by using the AC 

charger included. When new, you must fully charge the 

battery in your 7700 Pro before use.
To charge the unit fully, connect the AC charger as  

indicated in the picture on the right. The battery light on  

the 7700 Pro will illuminate and will take approximately  

3 hours to charge. When the internal battery is fully  

charged, the red LED will turn green. Once fully charged 

the battery will last approximately 2 hours during 

 

normal use.

Note: The new battery’s full performance is only 

achieved after two or three complete charges and 

discharges.

Plug the charger cable into the power 

socket on the back of the 7700 Pro

Plug the charger  

into an AC outlet

3. Installing the 7700 Pro using the Windshield Suction Cup bracket

You can mount your 7700 Pro to the inside of your vehicles windshield using the 

windshield bracket provided. 

 

Clean the area where you wish to position the bracket  

thoroughly with a high quality glass cleaner. This  

allows a more secure seal on the windshield.

 

Assemble the suction cup bracket. Slide the mount  

clip onto the end of the suction cup arm and tighten  

both plastic nuts.

 

Place the suction cup and bracket on the windshield  

and push the locking lever towards the  

windshield to secure the bracket.

 

Adjust the angle of the bracket so that when the  

unit is attached to it you can view the display and  

operate the controls safely.

 

Position the 7700 Pro onto the bracket, by clipping  

it on it as indicated. Remove the 7700 Pro by pulling  

the tab and sliding the unit upwards and off  

the bracket.

NOTE: Only use the cigarette lighter power cable provided with the 7700 Pro.  

Using any other cigarette lighter power cable could damage your device and void 

the warranty. 
NOTE: Mounting your 7700 Pro in close proximity to a CB radio may interfere with 

GPS reception. Should you encounter such interference, position your 7700 Pro as 

far away from your CB radio as possible.

Operating Instructions

1. Starting Up

Once the battery is fully charged, it is time to perform the first Start Up. 

 

First make sure your vehicle is parked in as open a space as possible, clear of tall   

trees and buildings so that the built in GPS antenna has a clear view of the sky above.

 

Next, make sure the 

Battery ON/OFF

 switch located on the back  of the unit to the ‘ON’ 

position. Press and hold the standby power switch on the top right side of the unit for  

2 seconds.

 

While the 7700 Pro software is loading, a start-up display will be shown for just a   

few seconds and then an ‘Information Screen’ will be displayed. Press the ‘I Agree’   

button and the screen will display a section of a map. 

 

The 7700 Pro needs to acquire a minimum of four satellites in order to work. Once this 

has been achieved, the unit  will ascertain your position and display a green arrow icon 

on the on-screen map. The GPS signal strength will be shown to the bottom right hand 

corner of the display. Your 7700 Pro is now ready to navigate.

As the GPS engine and antenna have never been used before, the first ‘Cold’ start 

could take anywhere from 15 – 50 minutes to establish a satellite connection. Once 

initialized, subsequent start ups will take less time and eventually should take only 

a matter of minutes.

BATTERY OPERATION

The 7700 Pro has a built-in rechargeable battery to allow operation without a power cord 

attached. The battery automatically goes into Recharge mode whenever a power cord is 

plugged in to the unit.

On a full charge, the unit will last for approximately 2 hours of normal operation while in 

battery mode.
When the battery is very cold or very hot, recharging could damage it. Under those con-

ditions, an alert message will be displayed and charging will be deferred until the battery 

temperature has returned to the charging range. The unit can still be operated using the 

12V cord.
MAINTENANCE

Very little maintenance is required to keep this 7700 Pro unit in good operating condition.

•  Keep the unit components clean by wiping with a soft lens cleaning cloth. Do not 

 

  use solvents or harsh or abrasive cleaners, which could damage the case or scratch  

  the display.

•  Protect the unit from moisture and from being dropped or struck by hard objects to   

  prevent damage.

•  Consult the Cobra website (www.cobra.com) for the latest software and 

 

  database updates.
