Applies to vehicles: with navigation system
Select: NAV button > control button Settings.
The route is calculated according to various criteria.
Route criteria
Dyn. traffic avoidance: When the dynamic traffic avoidance function is on, the route is automatically optimised using the current TMC traffic information. If the MMI system does not display a detour route although the dynamic traffic avoidance function is on and a traffic jam has been reported on the planned route, this is because the estimated time required for the detour is longer than the estimated time required for remaining on the route with the traffic jam.
Alternative routes: When this function is on, up to three suggested routes and their characteristics are displayed in the legend menu on the MMI display. In the map display the route which was calculated on the basis of your criteria is highlighted. Turn and press the rotary pushbutton to select the possible alternative routes.
Route type: You can select a short, fast or economical route.
Motorway/Vignette1)/Toll road1)/Tunnel1)/Ferry1)/Motorail1): If you do not want the navigation system to include motorways, vignette/toll roads, tunnels, ferries or motorail transit routes in the route calculation, you can set the option avoid1).
Closed certain times: Select avoid to exclude roads that are closed at certain times of the day (e.g. pedestrian zones) from the route calculation. When auto is selected, the MMI system will determine whether the restricted road can be included in the route calculation based on the entries stored in the navigation data.
Seasonally restricted: Select avoid to exclude roads that are closed during certain seasons (e.g. mountain passes) from the route calculation. When auto is selected, the MMI system will determine whether the seasonally restricted road can be included in the route calculation based on the entries stored in the navigation data.

auto: When the lights are on, the map scheme will switch from day to night.

If the map scale is more than 100 km, the map is set to face north. Any existing three-dimensional town models are shown on the display when the scale is set to between 30 m and 100 m; three-dimensional landmarks are displayed when the scale is between 30 m and 200 m.
