ferent media are known as “

media sources

”.

These audio files can be played through the
corresponding players or the infotainment
system's audio inputs.

Only supported files are displayed and
played. Other files are ignored.

Limitations and indications

Dirt, high temperatures and mechanical
damage can cause data media to fail. Con-

sider the indications provided by the manu-
facturer of the data media.

204

Operating modes

Quality differences between data media pro-
duced by different manufacturers can cause
playback interference.

Consider copyright legislation!

The configuration of data media or of the
equipment or programs used for recording
may cause some tracks or data media to be
unreadable. On the Internet, for example, can
be found information about the best way to
record audio files or data media (compres-
sion rate, ID3 tag, etc.).

The reading speed can vary considerably
depending on the size, the usage status
(copying and deleting processes), the struc-
ture of the folders and the type of files of the
data media used.

Playlists

 only establish a certain playback

order. The files are 

not

 saved in them. Play-

lists 

cannot

 be played if the files on the data

media are 

not

 saved to the path to which the

playlist refers.

A cover can only be displayed when the
name starts with “

Cover

”, “

Folder

” or “

Al-

bum

”.

Note

Do not use memory card adaptors, USB

extension cords or USB hubs!

SEAT assumes no liability for any deterio-

ration or loss of files on data storage devi-
ces.

Playback order of files and folders

Fig. 203 

Example of the structure of an audio

data CD.

The audio files 

 stored on data media are

often arranged by file folders 

 and playlists

 to establish a certain playback order.

Depending on their name on the data media,
tracks, folders and playlists are ordered nu-
merically and alphabetically.

Due to the large number of possible Blue-

tooth® audio sources, it is not possible to
guarantee fault-free operation of all de-
scribed functions.

Always switch off the warning and serv-

ice tones on a connected Bluetooth® audio
source, e.g. key tones on a mobile tele-
phone, to prevent possible interference
noise and malfunctions.

The system response time may vary, de-

pending on the connected external play-

Introduction

General information

A GPS (Global Positioning System) satellite
system locates the current position of the ve-
hicle. The vehicle’s sensors measure the dis-
tance travelled. The measurements are com-
pared with the stored detailed map resour-
ces, according to road indications stored in
them. Traffic reports, if any, will also be taken
into account in the route calculation (dynam-
ic route guidance 

››› 

page 222

). Using all the

data available, the Infotainment system cal-
culates the optimum route to the destination.

The destination is defined by entering an ad-
dress or a point of interest, e.g. a petrol sta-
tion or hotel.

Navigation announcements and graphic rep-
resentations will guide you to your destina-
tion.

Depending on the country, some functions of
the infotainment system will not be available
on the screen when travelling higher than a
certain speed. It is not a malfunction, but is
due to compliance with legislation.

CAUTION

The navigation announcements may be in-
accurate (e.g. due to out-of-date data).

Instructions for navigation

When the Infotainment system is unable to re-
ceive any data from GPS satellites (tunnels,
garages), navigation can still continue using
the vehicle sensors.

Possible limitations in navigation

In areas that are not or are only partially digi-
tised (e.g. insufficient definition of one-way
streets and road categories), the Infotain-
ment system will still attempt to provide route
guidance.

In the case of missing or incomplete naviga-
tion data, it may not be possible to determine
the exact position of the vehicle. This may
mean that navigation is not as precise as usu-
al.

Navigation area and update of navigation
data

Road layouts change continuously. There-
fore, if the navigation data are not updated,
then errors or inaccuracies may occur.

SEAT recommends updating navigation data
on a regular basis.

Updating and using navigation da-
ta from an SD card

The SD card is factory fitted in slot 2 for SD
cards.

Navigation data that is currently valid for this
unit in order to allow all functions to be used
in full.

Updating navigation data

The current navigation data can be downloa-
ded in the internet at www.seat.com and stor-
ed in a SD card compatible with the unit.

Suitable SD Cards can be acquired at SEAT
dealerships.

The procedure is described on the internet at
www.seat.com.

Using navigation data

Insert the memory card 

››› 

page 210

.

Wait for the testing icon to disappear.

If the inserted memory card contains valid
navigation data, the following message ap-
pears: “

The source contains the

navigation database

”. Navigation can be

started.

Note

The inserted memory card must be pre-

pared before it is ejected 

››› 

page 210

.

Navigation is not possible without the SD

card.

Do not remove the memory card while

the navigation data is in use. This could
damage the memory card!

The navigation memory card cannot be

used as a memory for other files.

SEAT recommends using only the original

SEAT cards. The use of other memory cards
could limit its operation.

Infotainment system

Red route:

 Fastest route.

Orange route:

 Shortest route to the

destination, even if it results in longer
travelling time.

Select the desired route by pressing it.

The route criteria settings in the 

Route op-

tions

 menu are modified accordingly.

If a route is not selected, the route guidance
starts automatically after approx. one minute
according to the setting selected in 

Route

options

.

Once the route has been calculated, the sys-
tem gives the first navigation announcement.
Up to 3 navigation announcements are given
before a turn.

Press the adjustment knob to listen to the

last audible navigation instruction.

The indicated distances depend to a great
extent on the type of road and the traffic
speed. On motorways, for example, naviga-
tion announcements are received much earli-
er than in urban traffic.

The corresponding navigation announce-
ments are also given on roads with several
lanes that split, and on roundabouts, for ex-
ample: “Leave the roundabout at the second
exit.”

A navigation announcement informs you
when you have reached your “destination”.


A navigation announcement informing you
that you have reached the “destination area”
is given if the exact destination cannot be
reached.

During 

dynamic route guidance

, you re-

ceive information about reported traffic con-
gestion on the route. An additional navigation
announcement is given if the route is recalcu-
lated.

During

 a navigation announcement, you can

change its volume using the button 

.

For other announcement settings, select

Navigation > Settings > Navigation
announcements

.

Note

If you miss a turning during route guid-

ance and are currently unable to turn back,
keep on driving until the navigation system
offers a new route.

The quality of the announcements and

recommendations depends on the naviga-
tion data available and any reported traffic
problems.
