Volvo Built-In Navigation System with Real-Time Traffic

Quickest route? Favorite restaurant? Nearest gas station? The Volvo Navigation System (VNS) guides you all the way. And with RTT1 (Real Time Traffic) updates to detect traffic disruptions, you can be sure that you’ll get to your destination as smoothly as possible.

The VNS features:

    • Voice recognition: Use voice commands to control VNS
    • Bluetooth voice recognition: Operate your phone through your infotainment center
    • Address book: Store up to 250 addresses or sync your Bluetooth-enabled phone’s address book
    • Dynamic route guidance
    • Multiple map view: 2D & 3D views, as well as detailed lane information and more
    • Volvo Map Care Program: Includes 2 complimentary map upgrades

The VNS also includes features that enable you to set itineraries, search for certain types of points of interest along your route, store special destinations, obtain traffic information en route, and more. Plus, you can control it all from the steering wheel, or use the included separate remote to allow your passengers to take control.

And by enabling you to reach your destination quickly and by the most direct route, the VNS also helps contribute to improving the environment. In fact, recent research* has shown that driving with navigation on a regular basis can increase fuel efficiency by 12%. This increase in fuel economy translates to a 20% decrease in carbon dioxide emissions each year when compared to a vehicle without navigation.
