How to set home, work and favourite locations using SYNC 3

Quick access to frequent destinations

The SYNC™ 3 Navigation system (if equipped) lets you create a list of favourites so you can access your home, work, or other frequently used routes with ease. No matter where your journey takes you, this convenient feature helps you safely navigate to your favourite destinations with just a few taps of the touchscreen.

To add your home and work address to the saved locations, perform the following steps:

  • On the Navigation view, tap the menu button, New Route, and Saved Location.
  • Select HOME or WORK. Tap OK to confirm your selection. 

    The fastest way to search is to use combined search, however you can also initiate a separate search for addresses, Places, saved locations, or recent destinations.
  • Perform the following steps to use combined search: 

  • Tap Search in all. You will see two input fields at the top of the screen. The right input field allows you to use the keyboard to search and set the search area, town or country around which the search is carried out. The default search area is the area where you are currently located.
    After the proper search area is displayed, start entering the name, address, or category of the destination you are looking for into the left input field.
    Tap the magnifying glass icon to switch to the result screen. You can see all the results in the list, regardless of their type. Addresses, Places, Place categories, Saved locations, and recent destinations are mixed in one list. You can immediately select the result you want to use as your destination or narrow the list of results for only one type (for example, Places).

  • Once the destination is selected, a full screen map appears with the selected point in the middle. If necessary, tap the map somewhere else to modify the destination. The cursor icon appears in the new location.
  • When the map appears with the selected location in the middle, tap the dropdown arrow button. 

  • Tap Save Location.
    (optional) Using the keyboard you can change the name offered for the Saved Location, then Tap the “tick” icon to save the location.

To set your saved HOME or WORK address as your destination, perform the following steps:

  • On the Navigation view, tap menu button, New Route, and Saved Location.
  • Select HOME or WORK. Tap OK to confirm your selection.
  • Tap Select as Destination to confirm the destination, or tap the return arrow icon to select a different destination.
    The route will then be calculated and the map appears showing the entire route, where you can check route information and route alternatives.
    Tap the downward arrow button to modify the route parameters, or tap Start Navigation to start your journey.
Optimise your route

You can set your map, route, and navigation preferences to personalise what SYNC displays during active navigation. To access these features, press the Settings icon in the Feature Bar, and then press the Navigation icon. Choose from the following options:

  • Press Map Appearance to have SYNC display 3D city models (if available), Landmarks and POI icons on the touchscreen map as they appear along your route. You can also select from a variety of Incident Map icons that alert you to conditions that may affect your route such as traffic jams, weather warnings and more. 
  • Press Route preferences to tell SYNC how to calculate your route. You can select Fast, Easy or Short. (The default route is Fast)
  •  Press Sound to select the prompts you want SYNC to use during navigation. Disable or Enable Voice guidance, or adjust Verbosity Level for how much and how often SYNC prompts you.
Planning a Multipoint Route

To build your route destination-by-destination, perform the following steps:

1. Tap the menu button on the Navigation view to access the Navigation menu.

2. Tap Multipoint Route icon.

3. On the Multipoint Route screen, there is only one line in the list of route points, the starting point of the route; which is by default the current GPS position.

5. The New Route to... screen appears, where you can select the destination of the route by Address, Places, Saved Locations etc.

6. When the selected location appears on the map, tap Select as Destination and the list returns.

7. To add more route points, tap Insert Waypoint + or tap Final Destination + to change the final destination. The Add to Route... menu appears again, where you can select the new route point.

8. (optional) Tap the dropdown arrow button to optimise the whole route or the order of waypoints. You can also delete all the destinations.
