Settings and driver profiles

Categories in the settings view

Updated 1/14/2020

The settings view has a number of main categories and subcategories where settings and information for many of the car's functions are collected.

The settings view has 7 main categories: My Car, Sound, Navigation, Media, Communication, Climate and System.

In turn, each category contains a number of subcategories and setting options. The tables below show the first level of subcategories. The setting options for a function or area are described in more detail in the corresponding section of the owner's manual. For system settings not described in the corresponding section, see the section "Changing system settings in the settings view".

Some settings are personal, which means that they can be saved to a Driver Profile. Other settings are global, which means they are not linked to a driver profile. The tables below provide an overview showing whether a category's settings are personal, global or a mixture of both.
