[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> Brian Cooley: Hey, folks. Brian Cooley here in an '09 Jetta Sport wagon with the latest VW head unit: navigation, media, hard-drive based. Let me show you how to enter a destination, very quickly, and do a couple of tweaks to that. Now, it could not be easier on this car. From the map view or from anywhere for that matter. Just press "nav," and that gets you right here to the destination entry screen. First button there is "address." From there, it will default into the region you're in. So most of us are gonna go either to street for the local city or enter the city you're going to. And as you can see, it first confirms that you wanna look up an address in that city. And then it asks you for the address first, and then the street name after that. A lot of good, strong text prediction here, so it quickly gave me a list of possible streets without making me enter a whole lot of addresses, and this is the one I want. And you start your destination navigation right there. Couple things to go with that I wanna show you. First of all, if you wanna turn on 2-D, 3-D, traffic or topographic, you hit that button, second from the left on the bottom ribbon. Traffic's a handy one. As you can see, it lights up right away. We do have some good, clear roads near us. Little bit of hazard right there. And the toggling's not hard to do from 2-D to 3-D, flyover mode, or this topographic thing, which is kind of odd, especially if you're in a city. Now, to do a multi-stop tour or other changes to your route, go back to the nav button again and use these buttons down here. For example, destination will let you change your destination or do a stop-over. Memory lets you load some out of previous memory. Your route function here is, of course, when you're under guidance. Extras will let you add stop-overs or go into the tour mode, as VW calls it, to re-order places that you're going. And you decide where you want to place your additional destination on the list. Where do you want it to go after? In this case, I'll just drop it to the bottom of the list. On and on, and then continue your guidance with the new list. So those are your basic ways of entering a destination and modifying a multi-stop and looking at your display for traffic and other types of use, on the '09 Jetta and similar late-model VWs with this advanced head unit. ^M00:02:09 [ Music ]
