DETAILED MAP COVERAGE AREAS
(MCA) FOR THE NAVIGATION SYS-
This system is designed to help you reach your
destination, and it also performs other functions
as outlined in this manual. However, you, the
driver, must use the system safely and properly.
Information 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 covers select metropolitan areas in the
United States and Canada.
Map data includes two 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
major metropolitan areas.
WHEN A GRAY ROAD IS DISPLAYED
ON THE MAP
. When you are driving on a road displayed in
gray after the vehicle has deviated from the
suggested route during route guidance, automatic rerouting may not start immedi-
. The navigation system does not provide
route guidance for roads displayed in dark
green. Therefore, if the destination is set on
a road displayed in dark green, the enlarged
map display will return to the ordinary map
screen at some point on a suggested route
that is near the destination. Also, voice
guidance will stop at some point on a
suggested route that is near the destination.
. POI information and street names near
roads displayed in gray may not be con-
tained in the map data.

the enlarged map display will switch to the
ordinary map screen at some point and
suggest a route that is near the destination.
The distance and direction to the endpoint
of the suggested route will be displayed in
the lower right corner of the screen. Also, at
this time, voice guidance will announce,
“The route to your destination includes
roads through incomplete map areas. Voice

nounce, “Entering the road with incomplete

To reach your destination, refer to the map
screen. Always follow actual roads and regulations and drive safely.
. The suggested route may not be the short-
est, nor are other circumstances such as
traffic jams considered.
. Because of the inevitable difference in road
conditions and circumstances between the
time you use this system and the time the
information was produced for the map data,
there may be discrepancies in roads and
regulations. In such cases, follow the actual

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
— 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

— Ferry lines, excluding those that are only for pedestrians, bicycles and motor-
cycles, are stored in this system. Take
into consideration the travel time re-
quired and operational condition before
deciding whether to use them or not.INFO:
The system will only announce street names
when the system language is set to English.
Street names are not announced when the
system is set to Franc¸ ais (French) .
BASICS OF VOICE GUIDANCE
Voice guidance announces which direction to
turn when approaching an intersection in which
a turn is necessary.
. There may be some cases in which
voice guidance and actual road condi-
tions do not correspond. This may
occur because of discrepancies be-
tween the actual road and the informa-
tion on the map data, or it is due to the
. In case voice guidance does not corre-
spond to the actual road conditions,
follow the information obtained from
traffic signs or notices on the road.

.Because it is not possible to consider data
concerning roads that are seasonally avail-
able or unavailable, a route may be displayed
that does not match the actual traffic
restrictions. Be sure to follow the actual
traffic restrictions while driving.
. 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 restric-
tions while driving. .

included in this map data or some of the
names or roads may be different from those
at the time you use this map data.
2. Traffic control and regulation data used in this map data may be different from those at
