Navigation* - traffic information

Updated 7/23/2018

The navigation system continuously receives traffic information transmitted via Traffic Message Channel (TMC) which is used for dynamic road directions. When situations that can affect the journey occur (e.g. accidents, road works) this is shown on the screen, and when a destination has been specified there is a recalculation of the route. Recalculation can take place automatically or require confirmation, see Reroute on request.

TMC is a standardised coding system for traffic information. The receiver automatically searches for the correct frequency.

Note

TMC is not available in all areas/countries. The system's coverage area is under constant construction and updating may sometimes be necessary.

The traffic information is presented differently depending on whether the destination is specified or not specified.
