Route mode

Setting route type and route options

You can select the following route types:
Х Fast Route: COMAND calculates the route with the shortest (minimized) journey time.
Х Dynamic Route: same route type as Fast Route. In addition, COMAND takes traffic reports into account during route guidance6. Thus, the navigation system is able to guide you around a blocked section, for example. If a faster route is determined due to a received RDS-TMC traffic announcement, the navigation system changes the route. If possible, it will bypass blocked roads.
Х Eco Route: the ECO route is an economical route that takes traffic announcements into account (see dynamic route).
Х Short Route: COMAND calculates the route with the shortest possible (minimized) route distance.

In addition to route types, route options can also be set.

You can select the following route options:
Х Use Carpool Lanes
Х Minimize highways
Х Minimize Toll Roads
Х Minimize Tunnels
Х Minimize Ferries
Х Minimize Motorail Trains

If you select route options with a tick, the corresponding types of roads will be avoided in the route guidance where possible.
