Tesla Model S: Navigation

Customize how the navigation system works:

  • Navigation Volume: Increase or decrease the volume of spoken navigation instructions by touching - or +, respectively. Fully decreasing the volume mutes the instructions. You can also mute navigation instructions when a navigation route is active by touching the volume icon on the turn-by-turn direction list.

NOTE: This volume setting applies only to the navigation system's spoken instructions. It does not change the volume of media player and phone calls.

  • Automatic Navigation: Enable if you want Model S to automatically initiate a navigation destination when you get in your vehicle. Destinations are predicted based on commonly driven routes, time of day, and calendar entries.
  • Trip Planner (if available in your market region): Use Trip Planner to plan your driving and add stops at superchargers if charging is needed to reach a destination to which you are navigating
  • Online Routing: When selected, Model S can automatically reroute you to a navigation destination to avoid delays (see Online Routing).
  • Avoid Ferries: When on, navigation routes avoid the use of ferries.
  • Avoid Tolls: When on, navigation routes avoid the use of tolls.
  • Use HOV Lanes: When on, navigation routes include the use of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes. This is particularly useful when using Navigate on Autopilot, if equipped (see Navigate on Autopilot). You are responsible for ensuring Model S is eligible to use HOV lanes.

NOTE: You can also display these navigation settings by touching the settings icon on the map (see Maps and Navigation).
