Navigation system

Note: The navigation SD card must be in the SD card slot to operate the navigation system. If you need a replacement SD card, see your authorized dealer.

Note: The SD card slot is spring-loaded. To remove the SD card, just push the card in and release it. Do not attempt to pull the card out to remove it; this could cause damage.

Your navigation system is comprised of two main features, destination mode and map mode.

To set a destination, press the green corner of your touchscreen, then Dest when it appears. See Setting a destination later in this chapter.

To view the navigation map and your vehicle’s current location, touch the green bar in the upper right hand corner of the touchscreen, or, press Dest > Map. See Map mode later in this chapter.

Setting a Destination

Press the green corner of your touchscreen, then Dest when it appears.

Choose any of the following:

1. Enter the necessary information into the highlighted text fields (in any order).

1. Enter the necessary information into the highlighted text fields (in any order). For address destination entry, Go! appears once all the necessary information has been entered. Pressing Go! makes the address location appear on the map. If you choose Previous Destination, the last 20 destinations you have selected appear.
2. Select Set as Dest to make this your destination. You can also choose to set this as a waypoint (have the system route to this point on the way to your current destination) or save it as a favorite. The system considers any Avoid Areas selections in its route calculation.
3. Choose from up to three different types of routes, and then select Start Route.

Fastest Route: Uses the fastest moving roads possible.
Shortest Route: Uses the shortest distance possible.
Eco Route: Uses the most fuel-efficient route.

You can cancel the route or have the system demo the route for you.

Select Route Prefs to set route preferences like avoiding freeways, tollroads, ferries and car trains as well as to use or not use high-occupancy vehicle lanes. (High-occupancy vehicle lanes also known as carpool or diamond lanes. People who ride in buses, vanpools or carpools use these lanes.)

Note: If your vehicle is on a recognized road and you do not press the Start Route button, the system defaults to the Fastest Route option and begins guidance.

During route guidance, you can press the talking bubble icon that appears in the upper right navigation corner (green bar) if you want the system to repeat route guidance information. For example, while driving on a route, you press the button to find out when your next turn is; the system displays a distance before the next turn. If you press the button again before the turn, the system displays an updated distance.
