“Itinerary” menu

From the home screen, press Menu, Navigation then Itinerary to access the following menus:

- “Edit route”;

- “Stop guidance”;

- “Traffic on route”;

- “Avoidances”;

- “Overview”;

- “Route”.

Precautions regarding navigation

Use of the navigation system does not in any way replace the responsibility or vigilance of the driver when driving the vehicle.

“Edit route”

Note: this menu is available when there is a route saved. If there is no route saved, you can create one by selecting the “New route” function.

Setting a start point

To set a start point on the route, press 1, “Set Start Point”, then “Set new point”.

Choose the location the same way as you choose a destination. The default start point is your current GPS position.

Note: setting a start point freezes the GPS receiver at a predefined location so that the route is not recalculated whenever a new position is received. This can be useful for planning and saving a future trip.

Once your starting position is defined, you can simulate the route from start to finish by selecting “Simulate”.

Press “Controls” to display the control bar.

Adding a destination

To set a new destination, press 3 then enter a destination. You can select a point of interest (POI) as detailed previously.

Adding a waypoint

Press 4 between the start point and end point to insert waypoints along your route (e.g. if you wish to travel via a specific location in order to pick somebody up). Choose the location the same way as you choose a destination. Your system will calculate a new route that passes the waypoint(s) you chose before reaching your final destination.

Pop-up menu 2

The pop-up menu 2 grants access to the following functions:

- “Select and delete”: This function can be used to delete specific waypoints along the route, or the entire route.

- “Reorder”: you can manually reorder your list of waypoints.

To confirm your route, press “Go” at the bottom of the screen. The system calculates the new route and the navigation guidance will begin.

“Stop guidance”

Select this function to stop the current navigation.

“Traffic on route”

This function displays the traffic map during the route.

“Avoidances”

To avoid certain sections of the route (e.g. in the event of a traffic jam not flagged up by the system), select “Avoidances” from the “Itinerary” menu.

You can choose to avoid the following elements:

- “Specific sections”: to avoid a certain type of road on the route. For example, you can skip a section of motorway or a ferry.

- “Section of the navigation”: to indicate a preferred distance over which the saved route should be avoided. The screen displays the distance, the avoided section of the route and the detour on the map. You can also see the estimated route length and duration change compared to the original route on the top of the screen.

- “Specific road”: to avoid a road on your route. For example, you can skip a road where you expect heavy traffic, but the Traffic system has not warned you about it.

- “Restore original route”: to cancel detours you set previously.

In all cases you are presented with a map screen, where you can see the avoided section, the detour and the estimated change in length and duration and the duration in relation to your initially calculated route.

To confirm your settings, press “Accept”.

“Overview”

The route overview can be displayed by pressing “Overview” from the “Itinerary” menu or after selecting a destination and calculating the route.

The top part of the screen shows the total route length and the total time that it takes to get to the destination. You can also see possible delays caused by traffic events.

- “Route Alternatives”;

- “Itinerary”;
