2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: No Means No

October 25, 2012


I'll admit it, I have no sense of direction. When I have to be somewhere I usually print out Google instructions and load the address into the navigation system. The nav system in the 2012 Jaguar XF is easy to use and has lots of display options. It presents you with a logical route and two optional routes or you can customize the way you want to go.

I used it yesterday for a two-hour round trip. In the morning it was very helpful. It was still dark out and I appreciated every time it spoke to me. On my way home it presented me with a screen asking if I wanted a different route because of impending traffic. I said no and it asked again. OK, I thought, I can at least look at the optional route it is offering me. I did and then said no. Traffic in L.A. is not unexpected and I knew what I was in for with my path. But it kept asking and asking and asking. It asked at least 20 times. No exaggeration.

I didn't go through all of the options before I left so someone must have previously chosen the "avoid traffic" selection, which is fine.  But when I said no, I meant no. Stop covering up my map. I did eventually hit traffic as I got closer to home but it only delayed me by about 10 minutes.
