  • Traffic Info: This button will provide information about traffic in your area and along your route.

  • Weather Info: If available, weather information for your area and route is displayed here.

  • Map Update: This function allows you to update your map.

  • Navigation Version: Shows the operating system version for your navigation system.

  • GPS Position: Allows you to adjust your GPS system.

  • Voice Recognition Settings: Allows you to enter the voice recognition settings menu.
