The NVX225 Navigator provides several settings in order to let you customize the functions of the program. The Settings screen can be accessed directly from the Main menu screen (4.1 in the User's Manual) and from the map screens by using the battery icon (4.5.10 in the User's Manual), while some of its sub-screens are accessible from other parts of the program.
These are the basic settings of The NVX225 Navigator.
Safety mode will disable the touch-screen above 10 km/h (6 mph) to keep your attention on the road. You are still able to use the hardware buttons to change the zoom and tilt levels or to open the Route Information screen but you cannot set a new destination or change the settings.When you disable Safety Mode, The NVX225 Navigator will warn you.
Set Favorite Destinations
You can select two of your most frequent destinations to be your favorites (6.3.5). You can start navigating to either of them by only two taps on the screen. The original names of these points are Home and Work. You can rename them and specify their locations. To determine the location you can use the same Find menu options (6.3 in the User's Manual) as for a route destination, and depending on that choice and the information available, the location will be shown here as a street address, a latitude/longitude position, or both.
Note: If you tap either of your favorite destinations in the Find menu (6.3.5) before defining it, The NVX225 Navigator will offer to take you to this screen to set it up.
Automatic Night Colors
Using the automatic night mode, The NVX225 Navigator will change between the daylight and night color schemes a few minutes before sunrise and a few minutes
after sunset based on the time and location information provided by your GPS. Once you set a permanent color scheme in the Quick menu (188.8.131.52), this automatic mode turns off. If you need The NVX225 Navigator to switch between colors for you again, you need to re-enable this feature.
Warn When Speeding
Maps may contain information about the speed limits of the road segments. The NVX225 Navigator is able to warn you if you exceed the current limit. This information may not be available for your region (ask your local dealer) or may not be fully correct for all roads in the map. This setting lets you decide whether you want to receive the warnings or not. If you turn on this switch, The NVX225 Navigator will open a new screen to let you customize the parameters used by the speed warning. You can set two different kinds of behavior for the warning: one is applied up to a certain speed limit and the other one is used above that.
The NVX225 Navigator will warn you when you exceed the speed limit by the amount specified here. Select whether you want to specify the tolerance as a fixed value (offset to the speed limit) or as a Percentage. The slider will change depending on which mode you have chosen. Both positive and negative values can be given in either offset or percentage mode.
