Making entries with the keyboard
The keyboard can be used to enter characters, letters and numbers, e.g. to write text messages from the car, enter passwords or search for articles in the digital owner's manual.
The keyboard is only shown when entries can be made on the screen.
The image shows an overview of some of the buttons which may be shown in the keyboard. The appearance varies depending on language settings and the context in which the keyboard is being used.
This applies when Japanese, Chinese or Taiwanese keyboards have been selected.
Press the confirmation button above the keyboard (not visible in the image) to confirm the entered text. The appearance of the button differs depending on context.
