NAVIGON glossary

The glossary is to provide information. Look here for all the technical terms relating to navigation. Simply search alphabetically, or use the list of keywords.

If you are unable find a search term, the questions and answers section may help.


Autoswitch Day & Night Mode

does exactly what its name says. When it gets dark outside, the display automatically adjusts to the new light situation.


Bluetooth hands-free kit

links your mobile phone with your NAVIGON, so that you can use your phone hands-free very easily via the large display. And, above all, safely.


Clever Parking

helps you to find a parking spot. Clever Parking displays nearby parking areas shortly before reaching your destination. You’ll be able to avoid lengthy searches and just drive directly to a parking area.

unites two things which belong together: driving and music. This is why your NAVIGON not only shows you the way, but also sets the right tone.



Whatever kind of driver you are, NAVIGON MyRoutes recommends the best route every time, adapted to your personal driving style, the day of the week and the time of day. In addition, your NAVIGON also displays up to two further possible routes, providing a clear choice. You decide whether you follow the recommended route or take one of the alternatives.


has a new roundabout appeared in the city? Or a street changed its name? NAVIGON MyReport lets you inform us about changes to the road network. Once they’ve been thoroughly checked by experts, they are incorporated into one of our next map releases.


allows you to easily transfer all of your contact addresses from your computer to your NAVIGON. This ensures that you always have your important addresses where you need them: with you.


offers updated maps from experts on a regular basis. Simply installed, they ensure that your NAVIGON is always as up-to-date as possible, so that the main road does not suddenly turn into a dead end. Updates are for a full 24 months.


Professional Voice Command

Not only can you select the destination comfortably and accurately by voice entry, but you can also perform important functions such as selecting the menu, controlling the volume and answering calls. All barely without taking your hands off the steering wheel. Thus, you can concentrate on the most important thing – the road.

POI Click

allows you to click and select a point of interest (POI) on the map such as petrol stations or tourist attractions. In addition, it provides essential information such as addresses, opening hours and telephone numbers. You can also choose to be taken there directly by your Navigon.

ensures that your NAVIGON device will not work for anyone who is trying to use or take it without your permission.

Premium TMC

is the Traffic Message Channel for even the most demanding requirements. This is because the Premium version provides you with information that is even more current and detailed on anything that might block, divert or halt your progress.


Real Roadsign Pro

guarantees a safe journey, every time. A road sign to match the road features appears on your display – for example, when sharp bends, strong winds or slippery stretches are expected. So you‘ll be well prepared for the various driving conditions ahead. There’ll be no surprises, just safe driving.

Reality View Pro

shows roads not as lines, but realistically, with asphalt and road markings and signs. This makes it easier for you to maintain an overview of motorway junctions and helps you choose the right exit (Reality View Light: exits only).

tells you the current speed limit. It will also provide you with audio and visual warnings, if you happen to exceed it..

Safety Camera

provides you with prompt audio and visual warnings when you are approaching fixed camera locations.

Spoken TMC

informs you via spoken notifications about traffic congestion on your route, the length of traffic jams and their causes. Every bit as detailed as traffic announcements on the radio!

Smart Speller

only shows you letter combinations which actually make sense. Fzoutxh Street and other such nonsense are now a thing of the past.


TMC (with a TMC antenna integrated into the charger cable)

helps you to smoothly make your way around traffic jams and road construction sites. Two cables have been made one. For you, this means that you no longer need to worry about a mess of cables in your car. This leaves more space for what is most important: you.


not only reads out distances, but also the names of roads and exits – to ensure that you can concentrate on the road.

TMC Routing Info

shows you an alternative route when traffic congestion is announced, with an updated distance calculation and arrival time. You decide if a diversion is worthwhile or if you would like to keep to the original route.
