Map Display During Navigation

When you get turn-by-turn directions, the map displays information about your route and provides several options that are described below.

Some map icons fade out after a short delay to declutter the screen. Tap the map once to reactivate the hidden icons. If you have Motion Lock enabled in your account, the icons are not visible while your vehicle is moving.

If the Current Speed and Limit Display Always On option on the Settings > General screen is turned on, the current speed limit and current speed are always displayed on Guidance and FollowMe views. If this setting is turned off, the current speed limit and current speed are displayed on those views only when you exceed the speed limit.

If the Enhanced Turn Notifications option on the Settings > General screen is turned on, you will notice the following when you are less than 400 meters from a turn:

The background color of the directions view changes.
The Turn icon blinks, and a clicking sound is repeated at regular intervals (if your device is not muted).

If the Enable Reaching Destination Satellite Map View option on the Settings > General screen is turned on and you have a cellular connection, the map changes to satellite view when you are within a set distance of your destination.

If you generated the route from a Marker Search, the Last Mile feature ensures that the marker’s arrival notes are announced and displayed. When you are approximately 400 meters from the marker, the arrival notes are announced verbally. When you arrive at the marker, the arrival notes are displayed on the Arrival screen.
 

Your map might look different, depending on the type of device you use.
