DISPLAY OF CURRENT VEHICLE
This navigation system combines the data ob-
tained from the vehicle (by gyro sensor) and from
GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites to
calculate the current location of the vehicle. This
position is then displayed throughout route guid-
ance to a destination.
WHAT IS GPS (Global Positioning
GPS is a position detecting system that uses
satellites deployed by the U.S. government. This
navigation system receives radio signals from
three or more different satellites that orbit
13,049 miles (21,000 km) above the earth in
space, and detects the position of the vehicle by
utilizing the principle of triangulation.
DETAILED MAP COVERAGE (MCA)
FOR THE NAVIGATION SYSTEM
This system is designed to help you reach your
destination, and also performs other functions as
outlined in this manual. However, you, the driver,
must use the system safely and properly. Infor-
mation concerning road conditions, traffic signs
and the availability of services may not always be
up-to-date. The system is not a substitute for
safe, proper, and legal driving.Map data is available on the provided SD-card.
For information about the map SD-card, contact
a NISSAN dealer or call the NISSAN NAVIGA-
TION SYSTEM HELPDESK. See the contact in-
formation on the inside front cover of this
Map data includes 2 types of areas: “Detailed
coverage areas” providing all detailed road data
and other areas showing “Main roads only”.
Detailed map data is not available in many
areas and is generally limited to select ma-
jor metropolitan areas.
WHEN A GRAY ROAD IS DIS-
PLAYED ON THE MAP
● Route calculation may not be possible when a
destination or the current vehicle location is
near a gray road.
● Route guidance (enlarged view and voice
guidance) may not be available at the inter-
section where the road your vehicle is driving
on and a gray road intersect.
● Places information and street names near
gray roads are not contained in the map data. ●
The NISSAN Navigation System may not cal-
culate a route if the current vehicle location is
too far away from the destination. In this case,
please divide your trip by selecting one or two

multiple routes between waypoints
simultaneously, and the following may result.
– If one section between waypoints cannot be calculated, none of the route will be
– The route may not connect completely at some waypoints.
– The route may require a U-turn close to some waypoints.
● Route calculation may not be completed in
the following cases.
– If there is no main road within a range of 1.5 miles (2.5 km) from the vehicle, a
message will then appear on the screen.
Try recalculating when the vehicle is
closer to a main road.
– If the vehicle is too close to the destina- tion or if there are no roads to the
destination, a message will then appear
on the screen.
– If it is impossible to reach the destination or waypoints because of traffic
– If the only target route to the destination or waypoints is extremely complicated. ●
The following may occur when the route is
– If you calculate a route on a main road, the starting point of the route may not ex-
actly match the current vehicle location.
– The endpoint of the route may not exactly match the destination.
– If you calculate a route on a main road, the system may display a route from an-
other main road. This may be because
the position of the vehicle icon is not
accurate. In this case, park the vehicle in
a safe location and reset the vehicle icon,
or continue driving to see if the position
of the vehicle icon is automatically ad-
justed before recalculating the route.
“VEHICLE ICON” (page 7-3)
– In some cases, the system shows an in- direct route to the destination or way-
points if you set them from stored or
places information. In order to correct,
you must be careful about the traffic
direction, especially when lanes with dif-
ferent travel directions are shown
separately, such as interchanges and
service areas. – Even if the freeway preference is set to
OFF, a route that uses the freeway may

ance is for reference purposes only. The con-
tents of the guidance may be inappropriate
depending on the situation.
● There may be some cases in which voice
guidance and actual road conditions do not
correspond. This may occur because of dis-
crepancies between the actual road and the
information on the map data, or due to the ve-
● In case voice guidance does not correspond
to the actual road conditions, follow the infor-
mation obtained from traffic signs or noticed
on the road. ●
Route guidance provided by the navigation
system does not take carpool lane driving into
consideration, especially when carpool lanes
are separated from other road lanes.

gested route, voice guidance is not available.
The system will not announce this to you. Re-
fer to the map and recalculate the route.
● Voice guidance may not accurately corre-

● Voice guidance may not accurately corre-
spond to street names at freeway exits.
● The displayed street names may sometimes
differ from the actual names, or “UNKNOWN
STREET NAME” may be displayed.
● Voice guidance is not available when the fea-
ture is disabled in the SETTINGS menu.
● Voice guidance will start when the vehicle en-
ters the suggested route. Refer to the map for
directions to the starting point of the route.
● When approaching a waypoint, voice guid-
ance will announce, “You have reached your
intermediate destination on the (left/right)
side.” Voice guidance will switch to the next
section of the route. When voice guidance is
not available, refer to the map for directions.
● In some cases, voice guidance ends before
arrival at the destination. Refer to the destina-
tion icon on the map to reach the destination. ●
If the system recognizes on which side the
destination (waypoint) is located, voice guid-
ance will announce “on the right/left” after an-
nouncing the arrival at the destination.

concerning roads that are seasonally available
or unavailable, a route may be displayed that
does not match the actual traffic restrictions.
Be sure to follow the actual traffic restrictions
● Canada and Alaska contain many roads with
incomplete map data. As a result, when
searching for a route, the route may include
roads with incomplete data. In regions where
road data is not complete, voice guidance
may stop for long periods of time. Be sure to
follow the actual traffic restrictions while
driving. The display is a liquid crystal display and should
be handled with care.
Never disassemble the display. Some
parts utilize extremely high voltage.
Touching them may result in serious
CHARACTERISTICS OF A LIQUID
If the temperature inside the vehicle is espe-
cially low, the display will stay relatively dim or
the movement of the images may be slow.
These conditions are normal. The display will
function normally when the interior of the ve-
hicle has warmed up.
● Some pixels in the display are darker or
brighter than others. This condition is an in-
herent characteristic of liquid crystal displays,
and it is not a malfunction.

remain on the screen. This screen burn is in-
herent in displays, and it is not a malfunction.
