visual and voice assistance to direct you to your selected destination. The
built-in software quickly calculates step-by-step directions to any destination
available on the included navigation map.
Note: Car navigation maps are frequently updated. While
this database was judged to be as accurate as possible at the time of its
release, a map database can never be 100% accurate. Road information that is
maintained in the map databases, such as turn restrictions or road names may
change over time.

On-Screen Map: The unit's on-screen map shows your vehicle's
current position (a red arrow by default), the recommended route (an magenta
line), the surrounding map area, and your destination as a checkered flag. The
on-screen map shows streets, roads, and highways in a way that is similar to how
a paper road map show them. A road's width and colors corresponds to their
importance, so you can easily tell a freeway from a small street. When
navigating a route, the top section of the map screen shows information about
your next route maneuver and the next street or the next city/town. When
approaching a turn, the map screen will zoom in and raise the view angle to let
you easily recognize your maneuver at the next junction. If the next turn is at
a distance, it will zoom out and lower the view angle to be flat so you can see
the road in front of you. The map also displays data; such as the posted speed
limit, your current speed, current time, distance to your destination, time left
before you reach your destination, and your arrival time.

differences. You can distinguish between valleys, mountains, and elevated
roads. In selected cities 3D landmarks and 3D buildings are also displayed.
- Color Mode: The navigation map screen uses different
color themes (Day/Night) during the day and during the night for both the
map and the menu screen. Daytime colors are similar to paper road maps, and
the menus are bright. The nigh color themes use dark colors for large
objects to keep the average brightness of the screen low. You can also set
the navigation unit to switch between daytime and night color modes
automatically based on the current time and GPS position.
