Map view on start up?

Post by Jeff123 » Tue Mar 24, 2020 2:34 pm

Hi

I have a MY20 XE and one thing that really winds me up is the fact that when I start up the car, the "Home" screen is displayed. Ideally, I would like the map view to be displayed.

I have had a fiddle with things, but can't seem to solve this issue. In fact, I don't even know if it's possible.

Any thoughts?

First time this has been raised.
I don't think it's possible as it always defaults to the home screen.
Plus on startup it takes a while for the car to grab the satellites and the nav screen to be available.
So if it was possible you would just be looking at "Navigation not available" which is what happens if you try going into the nav before it's hooked up.

Thanks for the reply.

My last two cars and also my wife’s all default to the map on start up, so I was hoping to achieve this. You are right about the map loading, but it’s only a few seconds, so I would be fine with that.

I assumed that I must be missing something, but if nobody else knows how to get the map view on start up, I will just have to live with the home screen.
