Home view is the view that is shown when the screen is started. It consists of four subviews: Navigation, Media, Phone and an extra subview.
An app or car function selected from the app or function view starts in the respective subview of the home view. E.g. FM radio starts in the Media tile.
The extra tile shows the last used app or car function that is not associated with any of the other three areas.
The subviews show brief information about each different app.
When the car is started, the home view's various sub-views show information on the current status of apps.
In home view standard mode - briefly press the home button. An animation that describes access to the different views is shown on the screen.
The activities in the car are shown at the top of the screen. Network and connection information is shown on the left-hand side of the status bar, while media-related information, the clock and indication that background activity is in progress are shown on the right.
Top view dragged down.
A tab is located in the centre of the status bar at the top of the screen. Open the top view by pressing on the tab or by dragging/swiping from the top downwards across the screen.
In the top view, access is always available to:
- Owner's manual
- The car's saved messages.
In the top view, access is given to the following in some cases:
- Contextual setting (e.g. Navigation Settings). Change settings directly in the top view when an app (e.g. navigation) is running.
- Contextual Owner's Manual (e.g. Navigation Manual). Gain access directly in the top view to articles in the digital owner's manual that are related to the content displayed on screen.
Exit the top view - press outside the top view, on the home button or at the bottom of the top view and drag upward. The underlying view is then visible and available for use again.
The top view is not available during starting/shutdown or when a message is shown on the screen. It is also not available when climate view is shown.
The climate row is always visible at the bottom of the screen. The most common climate settings can be made directly there, such as setting temperature and seat heating*.
Press the symbol in the centre of the climate row to open the climate view and gain access to more climate settings.
Press the symbol to close the climate view and return to the previous view.
