The navigation system applies location,
direction, and speed information to the
maps and calculates a route to the
destination you enter. As you drive to
that destination, the system provides
map and voice guidance.
The navigation system is easy to use.
The locations of many places of
business and entertainment are already
entered in the system. You can select
any of them as a destination by using the
touch screen, joystick, or voice control.
There are several ways to enter a
destination, such as by point of interest
(POI), by address, by phone number,
and by selecting it from the map. The
last 50 destinations are saved for reuse
at a later date. The system also allows
you to store a home address to simplify
returning home from your destination.
If you have front or side window tinting
installed, be aware that if the tint has
metallic properties, it can seriously
degrade or prevent GPS reception. This
is because the GPS antenna is located
under the dashboard.
If you plan to install electronic
components, such as radar detectors,
vehicle tracking devices, remote
starters, additional amplifiers, or other
audio components, ensure that they are
not located near the navigation control
unit under the dashboard, near the
navigation screen in the dash, or near
the GPS antenna under the dashboard.
Signal noise emanating from these
devices can cause intermittent
disruption of the navigation system.
Important Safety Information
The navigation system can distract your
attention from the road if you focus on
the screen or operate the system's
controls while driving.
Enter as much information as possible
into the system before you begin
driving, or when the vehicle is stopped.
Then, as you drive, listen to the audio
instructions and use voice commands
