This system is primarily designed to help you
reach your destination, and it performs other
functions as outlined in this manual. However the
driver must use the system safely and properly.
Information concerning road conditions, traffic
signs and the availability of services may not al-
ways be up-to-date. The system is not a substi-
tute for safe, proper and legal driving.
Before using the navigation system, please read
the following safety information. Always use the
system as outlined in this manual.
●When the driver wants to operate the
navigation system, first park the ve-
hicle in a safe location and set the
handbrake. Operating the system
while driving can distract the driver
and may result in a serious accident.
● Do not rely on route guidance alone.
Always be sure that all driving ma-
neuvers are legal and safe in order to
● Do not disassemble or modify this
system. If you do, it may result in
accidents, fire or electrical shock. ●
Do not use this system if you notice
any malfunctions such as a frozen
screen or lack of sound. Continued
use of the system may result in
accidents, fire or electrical shock.
● If you notice any foreign objects in
the system hardware, spill liquid on

The main features of the NISSAN Navigation
System are visual guidance and voice guidance
in selected map coverage areas. Utilizing a net-
work of GPS (Global Positioning System)
satellites, the NISSAN Navigation System tracks
the location on the map and navigates to a pre-
Once you set the destination in a map coverage
area, the NISSAN Navigation System will calcu-
late a route from your current location to your
destination. The real-time map display and turn-
by-turn voice guidance leads the driver along the
route. These features can be especially helpful
when driving to unfamiliar locations.
The system may be unable to set a destination
and/or calculate a route when the destination is
outside the map coverage area. Additionally,
voice guidance may not be available if the desti-
nation is outside the map coverage area. For
more information on how to set a destination, re-
fer to Section 4.

The NISSAN Navigation System offers an exten-
sive Places directory in map coverage areas.
This directory includes a wide variety of
destinations. By accessing the Places directory,
you can search for addresses for a destination,
and just by pushing a button, the NISSAN Navi-
gation System will calculate a route to the
The Places directory has many uses. For
example, the directory can be sorted by the vari-
ous types of restaurants near your current
location. If you need a bank or a gas station, the
NISSAN Navigation System can navigate you to
the closest preferred location using the Places
entered in the system.
“Setting a destination from places”
The address book can store up to 50 locations
from map coverage areas into a personal
directory. This is especially useful for frequently
visited locations, such as clients, relatives and
friends. The address book function allows easy
access to frequently visited locations when set-
ting them as your destination.
“Setting a destination from the ad-
dress book” (page 4-10)
When available, the XM NavTraffic Information
broadcast may help to avoid delays due to traffic
incidents. Traffic jams, roadwork, closed roads
around the current location, etc. are represented
graphically on the map by icons depicting the
nature of the event. Incidents on the route are
automatically displayed when they are
The XM NavTraffic Information feature, via the
guidance mode, may help to detour around traf-
fic problems. For more information on the XM
NavTraffic Information feature, refer to section
Route guidance is provided through voice and
visual instructions. Voice guidance announces
the appropriate directions when approaching an
intersection at which you need to turn. To repeat
the voice guidance, touch the “Voice” key.
The voice guidance can be alternately enabled
or disabled by touching and holding the “Voice”
key on the screen for about two seconds. When
the voice guidance is disabled, the “Voice” key
on the screen will appear grayed out.

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.
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 done at the intersection
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.
