Destination entry with Microsoft Sync

Auto Tech
[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Hey, folks, Brian Cooley here in the 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid. I'm going to show you how to enter a destination easily and quickly on this optional, but very desirable, touch screen navigation system. Now, I like to use screens, even though Sync is a good voice-detect system. I'll show you both real quickly. First of all, for the screen, wherever you are, there's a destination button right here. That makes it easy. So just press that actual hard button. You may have to accept the first time that you are willing to take the risk of driving while doing this. And by the way, destination entry is locked out at about five miles per hour. Once you get in there, it often goes to this quick screen of favorite destinations. I find that a little annoying. Because to me, the default should be standard. And from there, street address, which is over here on the right. And you see you've got your fields here. You can start with the street name. And at any time, if you want to see a list, hit the list button. It will take the text you've given it so far and give you its best guess. Now, I've got to put a city in there, of course. Notice how it tied the predictive text of the city to the street I put in. So it didn't even bother letting me enter any city that doesn't have a Van Ness Avenue. That's nice. It's speeding things up. And then, of course, the street number. It gives you a preview of where that is. And then you still have to hit set as destination or set as way point if you want to add additional destinations. And you can change the stack order of them, if you'd like, for a multi-stop trip. You can also save to the address book if it's a place that you go regularly. So three important buttons right there. I'm just going to go to the destinations so far. Notice you get a couple of options of route over here on the right. But it's the fastest and the shortest. This is a short trip we're taking. On a longer trip, you might have a real different kind of a route you can choose from. And you can pick from one of those. And as you do that, it will show you a preview on the map of how the route is different from the other one. And here, you have to press start route to begin navigation. You do have a couple of extra buttons there to get this thing to actually take your address and make it a destination. A little more pressing on the screen than I'd like to see. Notice how it goes to split screen for all the detailed changes that are coming up. The sports system is particularly good at that, at really calling out the detail action on the right, and keeping the overview on the left. Pressing on the screen here is going to give me some more options that are nice, in case a want to go back to wait point or save to address book. I've also got my traffic on and off title right here. No incidence. That's nice. Now, this is a good button to have handy, view or edit your route, including cancel the navigation. It's so annoying when you want to stop navigation and the damn thing keeps talking to you. Or you can change anything else about your route, including the actual destination and wait points itself, or the preferences and the traffic preferences to go with those. And view route is going to give you one of those previews of where it's going to take you. And there it is showing it in overview with your checkered flag at the end. Or you can view the whole thing as a text list here to see all the turns that way, if that's more how your mind works. Now, if you want to use the voice command system on Sync, which is one of the better natural voice recognition rigs. Here's how it goes. You've got your speaking button or your voice command button right here. Destination. Street address. >> Destination street address. Please say the city name. >> San Francisco. >> San Francisco. Please say the street name. >> Van Ness. >> Please say a line number. >> One. >> One Van Ness. >> Please say a house number. >> 1000. >> The number you said was 1000. Is that correct? >> Yes. >> Yes. Please say a line number. >> Two. >> Two Van Ness Avenue. Press the voice button to say set as destination or back. >> Set as destination. >> Set as destination. >> Now, I still prefer to use buttons. But remember, the buttons are locked out above five miles an hour. Your Sync voice command continues to work. So that's a big advantage of using the voice rec system, depending on your driving conditions. So two ways to easily enter destinations, and, of course, to cancel and manage those routes in the 2010 Milan Hybrid or any of the similar current Ford products with this navigation LCD head unit. ^M00:04:19 [ Music ]
