Detailed map data is not available in many
areas and is generally limited to select
major metropolitan areas.

.If waypoints are set, the system calculates
multiple routes between waypoints simulta-
neously, 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 saying so will appear on the
screen. Try recalculating when the vehi-
cle is closer to a main road.
— If there is no main road within a range of 1.5 miles (2.5 km) from the destination or
waypoint, a message saying so will
appear on the screen. Try setting the
location closer to a main road.
— If the vehicle is too close to the destination or if there are no roads to
the destination, a message saying so will
appear on the screen. — If it is impossible to reach the destination
or waypoints because of traffic regula-
— If the only route to reach the destination or waypoints is extremely complicated.
— If the destination, current vehicle position or waypoint is within the “Avoid Area”.
— If a part of the route is included in the “Avoid Area”.
. 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
exactly match the current vehicle loca-
— 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
another 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 automati-
cally adjusted before recalculating the
route. — There are cases in which the system
shows an indirect route to reach the
destination or waypoints, if you set them
from stored or facility information. In
order to correct this, you must be careful
about the traffic direction, especially
when lanes with different travel direc-
tions are shown separately, such as
interchanges and service areas.
— This system makes no distinction be- tween limited traffic control and total
control (blockage) . It may show an
indirect route even if the road is usable.
— Even if the freeway preference is set to OFF, a route that uses the freeway may
