2015 Nissan Murano: Navigation System Shows You Exactly Where to Turn
June 30, 2015
Even with the help of a navigation system, I often make wrong turns when I'm driving in unfamiliar areas. Partly, it's my inability to conceptualize a turn that's coming up in 0.2 mile or 400 feet or whatever, and partly it's due to dividing my attention between the primary activity (driving the vehicle), listening to the radio, and following the nav system's guidance.
Secondary maps that display in the instrument panel are usually helpful. This one in our long-term 2015 Nissan Murano is one of the best I've seen. It highlights the street (or ramp, in this case) that I need to turn on in blue while also showing me the nearby streets in gray.
In unfamiliar areas, this kind of context is very useful. The Murano's nav system is basically telling me, "Turn on this street, not the one before or the one after," and that saves me the trouble of thinking that through on my own.
