Optimize your route

If the navigation feature is equipped you can set your map, route, and navigation preferences to personalize what SYNC® displays during active navigation. To access these features, press the Settings icon in the Feature Bar, and then press the Navigation icon. Choose from the following options:

  • Press Map preferences to have SYNC® display 3D city models (if available), Breadcrumbs and POI icons on the touchscreen map as they appear along your route. You can also select from a variety of Incident Map icons that alert you to conditions that may affect your route such as traffic jams, accidents, weather warnings and more.
  • Press Route preferences to tell SYNC® how to calculate your route. You can select Fastest or Shortest, or choose Eco to have SYNC® provide you with the most economical route to your destination. (The default route is Fastest.) You can also specify if you want SYNC® to Always Use <Preferred> Route, Use HOV Lanes, Automatically Find Parking, Avoid Toll Roads and more.
  • Press Navigation preferences to select the prompts you want SYNC® to use during navigation. Choose Voice & Tones, Voice Only or Tones Only.

Set multiple destinations along your route

You can set a waypoint during active navigation to have SYNC® guide you to multiple destinations, such as restaurants and other locations, along your route. You can use Navigation Voice Commands to control some of these features. Here’s how to set a waypoint: 

  • Press the Destination icon during an active route, and set a destination by pressing the Home, Work or Favourites icon.
  • After you make your selection, SYNC® will display a screen confirming your selection. Press the Add Waypoint icon to add the destination to your route. You can select up to five waypoints.
  • The next screen will display your Waypoint List, which shows your waypoints and final destination. You can change the order in which they appear, or have SYNC® optimize the order for you. Once you have the order you want, press Go.
  • SYNC® calculates your route and displays your waypoints and final destination on the touchscreen map.
