[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >>Hey folks Brian Cooley here with a 09 Mercedes GL320 with the upgraded hard drive based head unit for which I'm gonna show you how to enter a destination very simply. This isn't always as easy as it should be on cars, let's get right to it. This is not a touch screen so don't start pokin away on the LCD. That will get you nowhere. Press the ok button if you're in full screen map like I am and that brings up your menus. If you're not in the right menu go down to the bottom ribbon, over to the right and that gets you to destination. Press that and you have several ways to get a destination in there, address entry may be the most common. It defaults to city to start with and you can enter that in with the ribbon on the bottom, which will also give you predicted text of course. So there's San Francisco in just a few key presses, thanks to the predictive text. Now I can do my street. [silence] Again predictive text takes me through pretty quickly and it brings up a list right away when it gets some idea what you want to do and finally your number. Now you've got your city, your street, your number. Just hit start. Once you're under guidance you've got one interesting option here. If you're curious where it's going to take you, go over here to route, drop down to route browser and now you can actually step through piece by piece how your trip is gonna go. Each segment gets highlighted as you make it through the destination process. And it shows you in the upper left how far you'll go on each of these roads. If you want an alternate route along the way just go over back to route again and you can get to alternative right there. If you're going a far enough distance it will have some other routes for you. We're only going 1.6 miles so there's really only one logical way to get there but for a longer trip you'd get some various choices here and it would allow you to avoid certain types of road conditions like highways, tolls roads, what have you or bad traffic. And you've got a detour option here as well. If you want to have a longer or shorter route, of course again we're going almost nowhere so there is no shorter route available. And the all important cancel that damn guidance is simple as well, destination right there at the top where it should be on every system, cancel guidance. Anyway that's how you get destinations entered quickly in a 09 era hard drive based [background music] head unit on Mercedes cars. [ Music ]
