Destination entry on a 2010 Volvo head unitThis Quick Tip will show you how to enter a destination on a 2010 Volvo head unit.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Hey, folks, Brian Cooley and a 2010 Volvo XC60 with their rather usual navigation system. Let me give you a quick howto on how to use it. The basic stuff, of course, always starts with setting a destination. Now, you have got this weird controller on the back of the steering wheel you have got to get used to. Or even more weird, you have this wireless remote here. They kind of use this same logic, so I'm going to go with the wireless remote. I'll start with the back button here which gets me to a menu from the basic map. Set destination is the first thing, right click over to address, enter on that, and now you have got your menu of criteria. I'll start with city. And, of course, I'm just cursoring over things and I'm getting pretty good predictive text here. And, of course, it greys out and skips letters that are not possible. Whenever you want, you think are you getting close, you can just head down with your cursor to the list of cities like I'm going to do here and select the one that you want. San Francisco, in this case. And you go through the same way to enter your address and street name. It's a little annoying that you do not have a separate number or letter menu for the address. So you have to go through all of the characters and numbers when you want to mouse around to set the address. I'd rather that you just numbers, but it doesn't work that way. Once you have your information you press set and then you can start guidance or you can add to an itinerary, that's how you would do your way points, for example. And your road options or here under the bottom ribbon as well. Usually you don't touch those. Here's where you clear your itinerary as well. If you want to zoom in a little bit, press the enter button from the map, go over to the magnifying glass and that's where you will then enter the zoom level you want to use. There is no easy way to directly access zoom and go back and forth. If you move the joystick you are actually just going to move your place on the map, which is of limited use. If you want to see your route, if you want to see where your route is going to take you, go down to settings here and under what is called start demo, it isn't really a demo of the system, it's a preview of your route rather badly named. And, unfortunately, it's really slow and tedious, so you are not going to use this feature much. A lot of this would be faster with a touch scene, so you end up doing a lot of clicking up and down, left and right with either of these controllers, so get used to that. And there is no voice command system for this guide. Another thing to know is before you start going, set your destination, because it locks out all destination entry once the vehicle is moving above a couple of miles per hour, so neither you nor your passenger can get anything done at that point. Okay, now the most important command, how do you shut this thing up when you don't want guidance anymore? That's a good question. Go to guidance, press the back button from the map, go to itinerary, then press right for options, then head over to clear itinerary and press enter. And now you got that cleared out and all of your navigation should be halted and done. So there's your basic howto on how to use, modify and stop destination entry on this rather unusual Volvo navigation system as seen in a 2010 XC60 and some other Volvo vehicles. ^M00:03:20 [ Music ]
