When you select a destination and configure the desired Route Options (for example fastest, shortest, or selecting specific types of roads to be avoided), if two routes are possible given the same criteria, the ‘Alternative routing’ function allows you to choose between two alternatives. The possible routes are shown on the map as well as their length and duration for a quick comparison to facilitate the choice.

The Trip Overview page shows a timeline of the trip with all the relevant info: current position, (indicated both with address and LAT LON coordinates), current time, total trip duration, time of departure, estimated arrival time, total length, covered distance, current altitude and speed.
The GPS Page shows beside the satellite status, a big digital Compass, indicating direction and degrees.

This way, the car is seamlessly integrated into your connected life.
The X-Nav can be bought as an accessory, available everywhere in Europe, supported by the
