[ music ] ^M00:00:08 [ background music ] >> Hey folks, Brian Cooley here in a 2009 Toyota Camry hybrid, with the upgraded navigation head unit. I'm gonna show you how to enter destinations and do a few tricks around that. Now to get started, luckily it's easy. There's a button called Destination. Hit that to get going. Upper left is your most common way to enter an address, it's the Address button. Note we've got a touch screen here, pretty easy to use. It defaults down to house number first, so that's usually the first thing you'll enter. Then you can direct access the street field, and punch that in. At any point that you want, when you think you've given enough characters, you can hit List. And then it gives you all the possible matches. And as you can see, I was able to list my streets, and then see what cities possibly could match, or you could punch in the city to get there that way. Then press enter to get the navigation started. Now if you're taking a trip that's long enough, you'll have the option of several routes. The one I punched in is pretty simple. But you see it looks like this, two quick ones and short ones. Quick is time, short is distance. Depending on the trip you're taking and where you're going, there could be a distance between them, and it will always show you on the map where the overall route would be. If you want to add another stop, a multi-stop tour, that's where you go to route, not three routes, and here you have Destination, and then Add. And then you're back to that same screen, except now you're adding a destination, not just changing it. And here's where you adjust the position. So if you're adding multiple stops you see you have the ability to slot it against your current destination. Also under the Route button is where you'll go back when you want to delete a destination. And I've got two in here right now, I can take out either one, or it would default to take out the only one I have. Being able to delete a destination is key, it's one of the best ways to get this thing to stop nagging you to go somewhere when you don't want to get guided any more. One other trick. If you're under guidance and want to see where this is all gonna take you, you hit the Map View button, and then under Route Preview you can see where it's gonna go step by step using these buttons down on the bottom. Okay, so that's how you enter a destination and manage destinations in a 2009 Camry hybrid, or similar Toyota with this navigation-based head unit.
