These easy-to-follow videos will help explain how to use your SYNC systems to get turn-by-turn navigation directions and set your navigation preference.
The ecological route (eco-route) uses roads with consistent speeds and fewer stops to minimize fuel consumption.
The eco-time penalty feature has low, medium, or high settings for the calculated Eco Route. The higher the setting, the longer the time allotment is for the route.
- Low: The system selects an eco-route that would not drastically affect your arrival time from the other route options (Shortest/Fastest).
- Med: The system selects eco-routes that may have a moderate impact on your arrival time by selecting more ecological routes.
- High: The system selects eco-routes that may have a large impact on your arrival time by selecting the most ecological route.
If you have a high eco-route time penalty and select the eco-route, the system will choose the most ecological route and disregard the amount of time it will take to arrive at your destination.
