How to setup and use the yOffset property of $anchorScroll in AngularJS

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I use the $anchorScroll-service in AngularJS. It works fine. But I have a fixed navigation bar at the top and the scrolling location goes always x-pixels to far.

Now in the $anchorScroll documentation there is a property called yOffset. According to the documentation it should fix my problem.

I don’t know how to use this yOffset-property however, because this specific part has no example.

How can I use the yOffset-property of the $anchorScroll-service?
