Car Tech: Navigation with the 2010 Lexus HS250h

2:20 /

Use navigation with the 2010 Lexus HS250h.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> Here's the 2010 Lexus HS250h with the brand-new Lexus remote touch interface and display system. Give you a quick how-to on how to deal with the navigation system on this guy. First of all, if you're in the map, let's say, and you want to enter a destination, just hit the menu button. And right there on the left is a separate icon for destination at the very top level. There's no need to even dig into a navigation menu to get it. So it's very much high level, easy to access. Once you get there, address is frequently what you're going to use. So you can punch that in using this remote controller right here. And it's all pretty straightforward Lexus stuff starting with city and then going on into your street name and number. The other way to handle this, of course, is by voice command. Destination. >> Destination. Say a command that - >> Address. >> Address. Searching. >> San Francisco. >> San Francisco. >> Now, notice. I can rush the thing. You don't have to wait for her to stop talking. Just press the voice command again when you know what you want to say next for the next command. After awhile, you get used to the car. You'll know that. One other thing I want to show you about entering destinations is this has the Lexus end-form system which is kind of like their version of On-Star. Hit the menu button again, and instead of address, click over a couple, and go to destination assist. That little person with the headset is going to help you out. And then call destination assist. >> Lexus Info Response Center. This is Matthew. I understand you'd like destination systems. Is that correct? >> You can see varying routes on this system once you punch them in, and depending on how far you're going, there may be quite a difference in them. In this case, not really. By the way, if you want to get a peek at what you're route's going to do, where it's going to take you, you do have this overview button here, if you hit the route menu. Then you hit preview. And now you can go step by step here. Finally, when it's time to cancel a destination because you're no longer interested in going there or something, back down to the route menu here, and there you can delete the destination, or you can just pause the guidance. Both are available there at that menu. So there's your quick how-to on entering and managing destinations with either remote touch or the voice command in this 2010 Lexus HS250h and other recent Lexus models. [ Music ]
