With a Flick of the Wrist: Connect Lexus Enform Remote to your Smartwatch

Lexus recently released a Lexus Insider article going over a new way to connect and use the Lexus Enform Remote app via the interface on your Apple Watch or Android Wear device.  We are loving this and if you already have an Apple Watch, an iPhone and a Lexus Enform Remote subscription then prepare yourself to get smart – we are going to give you the simple steps to connect.

 

Enform Remote Watch
Lexus Enform Remote for smartwatch

First, let’s go over the requirements.

  • Lexus Enform Remote Subscription:  You must be logged into an active account via the Lexus Enform Remote app on your mobile phone.
  • Bluetooth Connection: Your smartwatch must be paired with your mobile phone via Bluetooth and both devices must be within the range of one another.
  • System Requirements:
    • Apple users must have:
      • iPhone with iOS version 10.0 or higher
      • Apple Watch running version 3.0 or higher
    • Android users must have:
      • Android phone with Android version 7.0 or higher
      • Android Wear smartwatch running version 1.5 or higher
  • No Cross-Platform Support:
    • If you own an iPhone, Lexus Enform Remote can only run on the Apple Watch and vice versa

The first step is making sure the Lexus Enform Remote app is installed on your mobile device and you have signed into your Lexus Enform account on the app.  Once that is done you can follow these directions:

  1. Tap “My Watch” on the Watch iPhone app to open settings.

 

 

Connecting Lexus Enform to Apple Watch Step one
Tap “My Watch”

2.  Scroll down to find the list of the Apple Watch-compatible apps that are installed on your iPhone and select “Lexus Enform.”

 

My watch STEP2
Select Lexus Enform from the app list

3.  Toggle the “Show App on Apple Watch” option to the “ON” position.

 

My Watch STEP3
Toggle to “ON” (green dot)

4.  If this is the first time launching Lexus Enform Remote on your Apple Watch then you will need to enter your Lexus Enform PIN.

5.  You will then need to answer a few questions:  Enable or disable the PIN requirement at app launch (yes, please!), Enable or disable voice commands and to accept the Lexus Enform Remote terms and conditions.

Accept the terms

Congratulations!  You have installed the Lexus Enform Remote app onto your smartwatch and can now adjust and check out the settings page in the mobile app for your smartwatch.  These settings allow you to enable or disable voice commands and Android users will also be able to activate or deactivate Invisible Mode, an option that allows commands sent from the smartwatch to be completed in the background and notifies the user once that task is complete.  The Mobile App Settings Page will also allow you to add a “Manage PIN & Fingerprint” option so to require your fingerprint to act as your PIN when using the app.

With Lexus Enform Remote for the smartwatch, you can access the following Enform Remote features:

  • Engine Start and Stop
  • Door Lock and Unlock
  • Vehicle Status
  • Vehicle Finder

Time to dust off the old Apple Watch, charge it up and get connected with Lexus Enform Remote!  For additional info or for your own personal tutorial on how to get this working, stop by North Park Lexus at Dominion and visit with Dalton Ellis, our Vehicle Technology Specialist.

Get Smart: Intelligent Parking Assist with Auto-Braking

Do you have a 2017 Lexus RX and want to show off the smart new feature that is currently exclusive to your Lexus year and model?  If you’re one of the lucky Lexus drivers of a 2017 Lexus RX you have a feature not found on any other Lexus model – as of right now, at least – called Intelligent Parking Assist with Auto Braking.  Pretty much every 2017 RX will have this smart safety feature if you have at least the Premium Package or specifically Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.  How do you know if you have any of these features?  If your 2017 RX has a wood grain steering wheel, navigation or if you see a green “BSM” light on your dash then you can rest assured that you have this feature.

 

IMG_0134
2017 RX 350 with Premium Package and Navigation -this RX will have Intelligent Parking Assist with Auto Braking

 

How to Perform a SMART Demonstration:

  1. Check that “ICS” is turned on in the multi-information display.  Use the steering wheel controls to select the “gear” icon, then scroll down to highlight “ICS” and confirm that “ICS” is “ON.”
  2. Arrange solid barriers 6-13 feet in front of and behind the RX (you can use Styrofoam, cardboard, etc. for demonstration or actual barriers if you’re brave enough).
  3. Drive forward toward the barrier at 2-3 miles per hour (the ICS system is active at speeds less than 10 mph).
  4. Once the vehicle stops, you can take a breath and relax… or explain to your passengers that this smart system will hold the brakes for about 2 seconds.  You (the driver) must be ready to take over after this.
  5. Point out that ICS is now “OFF” in the multi-information display and an orange icon is displayed in the instrument cluster.
  6. Shift to Reverse and note that ICS turns “ON” in the multi-information display.
  7. Reverse toward the barrier behind the vehicle at 2-3 miles per hour.
  8. Once the vehicle stops, you can now be certain that your RX is the smartest car on the block.

For a personal demonstration, stop by North Park Lexus at Dominion.

Power in Detail

Across the Lexus model range, you’ll find thoughtfully crafted details working harmoniously to create an effortless yet refined experience for Lexus drivers and passengers alike.  From hand-stitched embossed leather seating to innovative paint techniques and meticulous human-led quality checks, every detail on a Lexus reflects a tireless dedication to excellence and a greater human experience.

Visionary design.  Visceral performance.  Imaginative technology.  Because connecting the driver and the drive like never before means nothing if it doesn’t lead to the experience of something greater.

 

Lexus-LS-Hybrid-black-interior-gallery-overlay-1204x677-LSP3003-d
2018 Lexus LS

There is a true power in detail and across the Lexus range, you’ll find even the smallest details yielding powerful influence.  Over the years Lexus has earned an almost cult-like following – it is few and far between where you will find a one-time Lexus owner or a Lexus owner straying (at least not for long) with any other brand, and we believe this brand loyalty is due to the tireless dedication to craftsmanship and the details that have us hooked on Lexus.

The redesigned Lexus LS is literally dripping in detail and, since it is the standard for Lexus craftsmanship and superior quality across the Lexus range, we thought we would complete our ode to Lexus craftsmanship with a list showing off just a few of our favorite new details found on the 2018 LS and LC.

2018 LS rear seat luxe – reclining, massaging and climate controlled.

Back-Seat Luxe

Like the perfect host, the rear seats in the new LS invites you in and encourages you to relax and unwind.  With options for heating, cooling, and even massage the rear seats in the 2018 LS spoils passengers with excessive legroom – more than in any LS model to date and even a reclining seat.  Rear passengers can tilt the reclining rear seat up to 48 degrees backward for immediate calm, or raise it up to 24 degrees for assistance exiting the LS.  These luxe details will leave even your rear-seat passengers wanting more – don’t be surprised if you’re asked to be the new designated driver from here on out.

Floating Armrests

 

Inspired by Japanese lanterns, the ambient lighting in the 2018 LS is enough to take your breath away, but it is the “floating” armrests that makes you look a little longer and a little closer when first stepping into the cabin.  This detail exudes a tranquil and utterly chic vibe.  We love it.

Takumi woodwork in the 2018 Lexus LS

Artwood

The story behind the impressive “artwood” in the new LS is enough for its very own blog post but one detail we could not leave off this list.  The new “artwood” is an incredible detail that truly exemplifies the Lexus commitment to not only producing gorgeous vehicles but creating an emotional experience for Lexus owners.  With three unique finishes to choose from, all are original designs created by Takumi using sophisticated sliced wood and laser cutting technologies.  The end result is nothing short of amazing.

Structural Blue on Lexus LC 500

Color Reimagined

 

The new Structural Blue for the LC 500 Special Edition (arriving this Spring) is another example that demonstrates the power in detail.  The eye-catching new color is the result of nearly 15 years of research and development work between scientists, engineers, designers and paint experts.  Said to have been inspired by the iridescent wings of the blue morpho butterfly, layered nanostructures in Structural Blue were created to allow enhanced reflection of nearly 100% of visible light (most paint reflects 50%), producing the incredibly vibrant blue.

The exterior of every Lexus vehicle is finished to perfection thanks to an intense process of painting, sanding, and inspecting.  After each coat of foundation paintwork, the car’s exterior is wet sanded by hand then checked by Takumi craftsman and digital scanners.  Every single Lexus is polished and checked by hand, again so the ensure nothing is missed.  Only a flawless smoothness is acceptable and every surface is ‘read’ by the fingers of the Takumi craftsman.  The painstaking paint process results in breathtakingly smooth surfaces with rich, luminescent color that is full of character and complexity.

Hand-stitched leather seating in the 2018 Lexus LS

Hand-Sewn Precision Built for Destruction

Lexus leatherwork is impeccable and only created by the finest, highly trained artisans that have completed and mastered a strict ten-step instruction program at a special Lexus facility that is dedicated to fine-tuning talent.  The stitching must be sewn to perfection and precisely – every single time and this is evident when you step inside a Lexus and take a look at the seemingly simple stitching.  The beautifully stitched seams are worthy of far more than our back-end but it is this commitment to the Lexus customer and the Lexus customer experience that drives the brand to invest the time and effort needed to create such works of functional art.  What makes the leather ‘detail’ even more impressive is that every inch of it is tested to the point of destruction.  Only the strongest leather is deemed worthy to trim the interior of a Lexus and all potential material must endure more than 30 extreme treatment tests before it is approved for use.  Lexus recently released a video that plays on the process used in creating the leather used in Lexus vehicles and it is definitely worth checking out here.

Hand-sewn perfection.  2018 Lexus LS

Across the Lexus model line-up, you’ll find that every single detail is crafted to meet the highest standards.  Every detail blends effortlessly with another and together they create a refined and simply comfortable experience for drivers and passengers alike.  Experience amazing and test drive one of the new, 2018 Lexus models we have available now at North Park Lexus Dominion.  Click here to view our in-stock inventory and schedule a personal presentation.

More to Love: the new Lexus RX L

The long-awaited three-row Lexus RX was finally revealed and we are loving all of the pictures and details that Lexus has released since it’s debut at the LA Auto Show yesterday.  The new Lexus RX L will begin production next week and should arrive at dealerships in early 2018 (we’re guessing February – possibly late January).  Longtime RX fans need not worry, the RX 350 and RX 450h will still be available as a five-passenger model – same size and design carried over from the 2017 model year, but drivers will soon have a choice to make when they upgrade to the new model year: keep their standard five-seat, two-row design or opt for the new six or seven-passenger option.

Both the gas and hybrid models will be available in the extended version of the RX and we are happy to report that the power-folding third-row seat will be standard.  The new Lexus RX L will also get Tri-Zone Climate Control and Leather seating as standard equipment.

3rd Row Seat in the new Lexus RX L

Lexus states that the addition of the third row will by no means impact the stylish and popular figure of the Lexus RX and the extended version will be just as easy to maneuver as the current model.  How is this possible?  Lexus explained the new “packaging” in their press release:

With the help through the mastery of vehicle packaging, Lexus extended the body length 4.3 inches at the rear and used a steeper tailgate window angle than on the two-row models – ensuring good headroom for third-row passengers.”

Passengers can access the third row easily and with “the touch of a lever that slides and folds the second seat forward” – we expect this to work like the GX seats do now.  Lexus will also offer a new six-passenger configuration which features second-row captain’s chairs (this will be standard for the RX 450hL).

 

x17-11-29-lexus-rx-l-interior-rear.jpg.pagespeed.ic.88uxIf3pNu
Lexus RX L 

Lexus designed the new third-row of the RX L so to provide the same comfort as the middle row by positioning the second row slightly higher than the third row, creating more foot room for passengers.  The extra climate controls in the back plus two super cute cupholders help complete the package and provides a perfect visual for families looking for some extra seating.

Check out the recently released pictures of the new three-row RX L models here:

How to Use Voice Commands for 2014 Lexus RX

We were recently asked about the voice commands for a 2014 Lexus RX 350 since our “Ultimate Voice Command Cheat Sheet” was, for the most part, not working for one 2014 RX owner.  Not getting your Voice Command System to operate as you need it to operate can be frustrating so we wanted to write a post specifically for owners of the 2014 Lexus RX (but this can also work for other models and another model year RX – up to 2015) to hopefully make things easier.

The 2014 Lexus RX has a very specific voice command setting that needs to first be turned on in order for most of the commands listed on our Voice Command Cheat Sheet to work.  This setting is called “Expanded Voice Commands” and you can turn it ON in the Voice Settings screen. Once the “Expanded Voice Commands” is turned ON, you can then press the Voice Command button on your steering wheel, and after the beep, say things like “Audio ON” to turn on your audio system.  It is also important to note that any command relating to the operation of audio/video and AC systems can only be performed when the audio and AC systems are turned on and in some cases, you will still need to say a preliminary command to prep the system for what you want it to do next.

Some of the Expanded Voice Commands can be recognized when the “Shortcut Menu” screen is displayed after first pressing your voice command button on the steering wheel.  For other, more specific commands, you will need to first say, “Main Menu” and then “Play Music” (for example) while the “Shortcut menu” screen is being displayed.  After these preliminary commands, you could then drill down into specific audio commands.  For example, say “Play Playlist <name>” for the system to then play your desired playlist.  Long story short, you have a few more steps that you need to complete first in order to use the commands on our Ultimate Voice Command Cheat Sheet.  Owners of the 2014 Lexus RX can check out the specifics in the Navigation Owners manual on page 337, but here is a quick overview for anyone not wanting to pull out their manual or read the instructions online.

Commands Recognized in the Shortcut Menu Display – no extra step needed once Expanded Voice Commands are turned ON in voice settings:

SET DESTINATION:

  • “Find Nearby <POI Category>” – POI Categories include Gas stations, Restaurants, etc.
  • “Enter an Address”
  • “Go Home”

USE THE PHONE:

  • “Call <name><type>” – calls made by saying a name from the phonebook and the type of phone, example: “Call John Smith, mobile”
  • “Dial <number>”

PLAY MUSIC:

  • “Play Artist <name>”
  • “Play Album <name>”

GET INFORMATION:

  • “Traffic”
  • “Weather”
  • “Sports Scores”
  • “Stock Quotes”
  • “Fuel Prices”

When destinations are set you can say the following Navigation commands (when the expanded voice commands are turned ON.):

  • “Delete next destination”
  • “Pause guidance”
  • “Resume guidance”

AUDIO MODE Commands:

  • “Radio”
  • “AM”
  • “FM”
  • “Satellite Radio”
  • “Disc”
  • “Auxiliary”
  • “Bluetooth audio”
  • “iPod”
  • “USB audio”
  • “Audio ON”
  • “Audio OFF”

Climate Control Commands:

  • “Automatic Climate Control”
  • “Warmer”
  • “Cooler”

Commands That Work ONLY When Already in Desired Function Screen 

If you want to play a specific playlist or song:

  1. “Main Menu”
  2. “Play Music”
  3. “Play Playlist <name>”  OR “Play Song <name>”

If you want to connect to Destination Assist or find a destination by phone number:

  1. “Main Menu”
  2. “Set a destination”
  3. “Call Destination Assist”

OR

  1. “Main Menu”
  2. “Set a destination”
  3. “Destination by Phone Number”

If you want to make an International Call Using Voice Command:

  1. “Main Menu”
  2. “Use the Phone”
  3. “International Call”

The technology in cars advance with every new model year and so is the case with the voice recognition and other navigation systems.  You can learn more about any specific model and model year on the Lexus Drivers site here or send me an email at jbrennan@lexusdominion.com and I’ll do my best to answer your question.  Thank you for reading!

Experience Amazing with our top recommended Lexus sites and online resources

The Sites: Learn More About Our Recommendations

Lexus.com

This one is pretty obvious as to why it is the #1 website and online resource we recommend for all things Lexus.  Lexus.com is the main website of Lexus in America and serves primarily as an “online brochure” for Lexus vehicles so Lexus shoppers can explore the Lexus model line-up on their own.  This main site is also super important since it works quite well as the hub for all-sites Lexus.  Scroll to the bottom of the Lexus.com webpage and you’ll find links to the best Lexus sites (most of which are on this list).

LexusDrivers.com

This site is one of the very best and the number one resource for current Lexus owners since it is where they can view and manage all Enform subscriptions, view and claim any Lexus rewards, view tutorials, access the Lexus knowledge center and much more.  If there is one site that you visit from this entire list, make it this one.  You’ll thank us later.

LexusFinancial.com

Another obvious choice and one that is definitely needed if you lease or finance your Lexus with LFS.  This is also a great resource for anyone with questions on the lease program, lease guidelines, Lexus Financial Rewards and everything you need to set up auto-payment online.  If apps are more your speed, you can download the LFS app that has also made this list and is available for download on the Apple App Store.

Lexus2.custhelp.com

Have a question?  Got to the Lexus FAQ site:  Lexus2.custhelp.com

This is a super helpful online resource.  It also serves as one of our secret-or not so secret- ways in finding out new information on models that haven’t yet (but will soon) be released (this is where we found the info on the new Wi-Fi systems, for example).

MyLexusEnform.com

Anyone wanting to take advantage of the new Lexus Enform suite of connected services needs to first go to this site to register and set-up their new Lexus Drivers account.  MyLexusEnform.com will send you the needed codes to verify and connect Lexus Enform Remote.  If you just bought a Lexus and aren’t sure how to get started with your new Enform services, go to this site ASAP.

MyLexusEnform.com – register your Enform Connected Services

LexusEnthusiast.com

This is the best site for anyone looking for new model updates, spy pictures, and other Lexus news before any of it has been officially released by Lexus.  The site is so good that recently Lexus has recommended the site to its Lexus dealer network.

Lexus-Int.com

The Lexus International site is one I frequently visit and a site that inspired the look and feel of some of the newer Lexus-stateside-sites you see up now (in my opinion).  This is the site that was my original go-to for detailed information on new models and Lexus Insider stories.  The site remains at the forefront of design and well worth the visit.

How to Activate and Connect to Lexus Enform Wi-Fi

Lexus recently launched Lexus Enform Wi-Fi with the updated 2018 Lexus NX and we will see it again in the upcoming release of the 2018 RC and LS.  The 2018 NX, RC, and LS are the first Lexus models coming with the latest version of Lexus Enform and will feature several enhancements in addition to the brand new Wi-Fi service.

With Lexus Enform Wi-Fi, you can connect up to five devices to a wireless connection by using your 2018 Lexus as a Wi-Fi hotspot.  Lexus Enform Wi-Fi is operated by Verizon so after the trial period, you will have to set up a subscription (assuming you want one) with Verizon directly.  You will be notified throughout your complimentary trial when you reach 50%, 25%, 10% and 0% of remaining data and you will then have the opportunity to begin a new Verizon subscription plan or add the Wi-Fi hotspot to an existing Verizon Wireless plan.  It is also important to note that Lexus Enform Wi-Fi requires an active Lexus Enform subscription so you’ll have to pay for both Lexus Enform and a separate Verizon Wi-Fi plan if you choose to continue using your Lexus Wi-Fi hotspot after the complimentary trial period.

Trial Activation and Sign Up: Choose Your Sign Up Method

To activate the complimentary trial or to sign up for a Verizon subscription after the trial has ended, you have a few options:

  1. Connect to Lexus Enform Wi-Fi in your Lexus vehicle (recommended method):
    1. A step-by-step process is outlined in the section below.
  2. Use the Wi-Fi Sign Up App within Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0
    1. With a Bluetooth connection, you can sign up by downloading Enform App Suite 2.0 to your device, enabling the Wi-Fi Sign Up App on the multimedia display and opening the redirected Verizon Wi-Fi Sign Up on your device.
  3. Sign up via the Lexus “Welcome” email that you will get shortly after taking delivery of your 2018 Lexus NX, RC or LS:
    1. New owners will receive a Lexus marketing email with information on Lexus Enform Wi-Fi and, if interested in signing up for the Wi-Fi hotspot, may click the “Sign Up” link provided.  This link will redirect you to the Verizon Wi-Fi Sign Up page, which will provide further instructions.

Turn on Wi-Fi in your 2018 NX by going to SETUP in Navigation or on multimedia display.

How to Connect to Lexus Enform Wi-Fi In-Vehicle (recommended method):

  1. Select MENU on your Navigation or Multimedia display
  2. Select SETUP
  3. Select the Wi-Fi button to navigate to the Wi-Fi menu, and toggle the Wi-Fi hotspot from “Off” to “On” (see above).
  4. Turn the device’s Wi-Fi on and follow the directions on the multimedia display to select the wireless access point name and enter the password provided:
    1. The default access point name and password may be changed via the Wi-Fi setup menu both before and after activation.
  5. Once connected, you will be redirected to the Verizon Wi-Fi Sign Up page.
  6. You can now enroll in the 4GB (one-year max) trial b providing contact information (name, address, email, phone number) and confirming trial terms.
  7. Success!  You can now use the Lexus Enform Wi-Fi hotspot for the remainder of your trial without having to repeat this process.

 

Almost Ready:  Go to the next step

Once the Wi-Fi on your 2018 Lexus has been turned on and enabled, you will be prompted to “Go to the next step.”

  1. Select the vehicle’s Wi-Fi access point name from the network list displayed on your smartphone and once selected, you will be prompted to “Go to the next step.”
  2. Enter the vehicle’s Wi-Fi password on your smartphone and you are connected to the Internet through your Lexus Wi-Fi hotspot.

If you leave the Wi-Fi hotspot turned on, connected devices may be set to automatically connect for uninterrupted future use.  You can toggle the Wi-Fi hotspot to be turned on or off, as desired.

Updates Coming to Scout GPS Link App

We recently learned that key changes and updates are coming to the Scout GPS Link App and has already launched on the 2018 NX that is now in-stock and available at North Park Lexus Dominion.  The 2018 RC will also feature these enhancements and we hope to see the rest of the models adopt the updates as they are updated with the latest multimedia system from Lexus.

Scout GPS Link first became available on 2017 NX, RX, RC, ES and IS models and features TurnStream (turn by turn directions) through the Lexus Display Audio System (models without factory navigation).  This same, original Scout GPS Link system will carry-over for 2018 ES, IS and RX models since they will not yet feature the newest multimedia system, however, the updated 2018 NX and RC models will both support the new MapStream (moving maps) and current TurnStream (turn-by-turn directions) feature.

It is important to note, that although Scout GPS Link is supported by the Lexus Display Audio system and will appear on the multimedia display while in use, the information and navigation displayed by the app are received from the user’s smartphone data services and the minimum mobile data connection should be 3G or greater for optimal use.  You also need a newer operating system on your smartphone.  Scout GPS Link requires either Android 4.4 or later or iOS 8.0 or later.

What’s New

The updated Scout GPS Link system (again, only available on 2018 NX and 2018 RC at this time) is now incorporated as a part of the Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0 that comes on the basic/starting packages or those with Lexus Display Audio.  The new system is available with a 3-year trial for all 2018 NX and RC models, and will be subscription-free through 2023 for the 2017 NX, RX, RC, ES and IS models.  The new system offers the same first-rate alternative to factory navigation and will feature new routing features with either turn-by-turn directions (TurnStream) or an interactive moving 3D map (MapStream) via the multimedia display.  Additional route updates, including traffic and ETA-based commute information plus YELP app integration, are also available through the updated Scout GPS Link app.

Additional Changes

  • Destination “Likes” are now called “Favorites”
  • Now offers 12 POI categories including:
    • Gas, Coffee, Restaurant, Parking, ATM, Fast Food, Lodging, Airport, Grocery, Shopping, Movies, and Bars

New Feature: MapStream (Moving Maps)

The new feature, MapStream, provides full moving maps on the multimedia display and aims to provide a better user experience when using the system to navigate to a destination.  MapStream also promises to provide drivers a view of their current location at any given time via voice command and turn-by-turn voice guidance.

IMPORTANT:  Since Scout GPS Link uses cell phone data, the user’s phone must have a strong cell connection in order for MapStream to work correctly.

To utilize MapStream on a 2018 NX or RC model, you must first connect your device via both USB and Bluetooth.  You also need to do the following:

  • Have Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0 downloaded
  • Make sure the navigation screen is displayed in half- or full-screen mode.
  • Keep the app open in the foreground (iOS users) or keep the device from entering sleep mode (Android users with OS 4.4 or later).

IF any of these requirements for MapStream or not met, Scout GPS Link will shift back to TurnStream as long as the device is still connected to Bluetooth.

Key MapStream Features:

  • Save time using One Box Search with auto predictions:
    • Users can search for a destination by address, city, phone contacts, and POI name and categories, using conversational search terms.
  • Search nearby businesses:
    • Search nearby POIs using the 12 available POI categories
  • Favorites:
    • Add certain destinations or addresses to the favorites list for easy access to those addresses in the future.
  • Choose the best-personalized route using Trip Options and Settings:
    • Access helpful navigation settings and customize a navigation session to your preference.
  • Vehicle’s current location and street name (sounds like the best feature)
    • When in motion, an icon moves along the map to indicate driving progress and includes the current location and street name.
  • Set up home and work addresses:
    • Add your home and work addresses for quick routing back home or to the office.
  • Zoom in/out:
    • Pan, or zoom in and out on the map to better understand their route options
  • When en route to a destination you can still view:
    • Turn Lists: a list of remaining turns left in route
    • Route Overview – bird’s eye view of the map with the chosen route highlighted and other route options available, next-turn info, an option to end the navigation and more.
    • Destination details – including destination name, address, current ETA and straight-line distance from current location.
