Using carNAVi off-road
ID #1017

Can I use carNAVi on the water / in the air?

carNAVi is working worldwide on land, on water and in the air. Depending on your installed maps it can be useful to change some settings to have more acurate results in using your navi.

If you are using your carNAVi on the water, for example on a boat trip or in the air, for example as a passenger in a commercial aircraft1 - we would suggest to turn off the 'lock on road' function. This function usually helps you to locate your position while driving and snap the position marker on the nearest road in the map.

While in off-road usage, this function is disturbing a correct position location on th emap, if still some roads are near to your current position.

So turning off this function is helpful.
-> select 'Menu" - 'Settings' - 'Advanced' - 'Navigation'

On page 2 of the Navigation settings you find the 'lock on road' setting.

Storing of waypoints is of course working in this mode as well, so before you start your trip, for example, store the position of your car and if you like turn on the track recording function, so you can have the data of your trip.

Beside this you can also reset one of the trip computer, see 'Menu' - 'Display' - 'Dashboard' to have an acurate information about your trip, like walking time, distance etc.

Don't forget to turn 'lock on road' on again, before you start driving 'normally' again!


1 Please inform yourself by asking the cabin crew or better the pilot, if the usage of GPS devices is allowed.
