Navigation

Introduction

Fig. 190 

Schematic diagram: Navigation view.

A global satellite system determines the current
position of the vehicle and the sensors moun-
ted on the vehicle analyse the routes taken.
All measured values and possible traffic events
are compared with the available maps to allow
optimal navigation to the destination.
Navigation announcements and graphic repre-
sentations will guide you to your destination.
Navigation management is carried out on the
screen.
Depending on the country, some functions of
the infotainment system will not be available
on the screen when travelling above a certain
speed. It is not a malfunction, but is due to com-
pliance with legislation.

Navigation announcements

Navigation announcements are acoustic indi-
cations for driving referred to the current route.
The type and frequency of navigation an-
nouncements depend on the driving situation,
for example, starting the guide to the destina-
tion, driving on the motorway or on a round-
about and the settings.
If the exact destination cannot be reached be-
cause, for example, it is in a non-digitised area,
indications relating to the address and the dis-
tance to the destination are displayed on the
screen.

During dynamic route guidance, you will re-
ceive information about reported traffic con-
gestion on the route. An additional navigation
announcement is given if the route is recalcula-
ted due to traffic congestion.
While a navigation announcement is playing,
its volume can be adjusted. The following navi-
gation announcements provided will be played
with the newly adjusted volume.

Limitations during navigation

If the infotainment system cannot receive data
from GPS satellites, for example, in a tunnel or
in an underground garage, navigation contin-
ues using the vehicle's sensors.

CarManuals2.com

276

Infotainment system

In areas that are not digitised or are only parti-
ally digitised on the infotainment memory, the
infotainment system will still attempt to provide
route guidance.
In the case of missing or incomplete navigation
data, it may not be possible to determine the
exact position of the vehicle. This may mean
that navigation is not as precise as usual.
Roads and streets are subject to constant
change (e.g. new roads, road works, roads
closed to traffic, changes to street names and
building numbers). If the navigation data is ob-
solete, this may lead to errors or inaccuracies
during the route guidance.

Navigation data

The Infotainment system is equipped with a
built-in navigation data memory. Depending
on the country, the necessary navigation data
may already be pre-installed.
To provide correct route guidance and make
the most of the functions offered, the infotain-
ment system should be updated on a regular
basis.

Using obsolete data may lead to errors during
navigation. Current routes cannot be traced or
the route guidances will lead to mistaken desti-
nations.
Ensure navigation data is updated at all times.

Online updating of navigation data

The navigation data of the regions through
which you travel frequently is automatically up-
dated in the background if the Internet connec-
tion is established and the privacy settings are
valid.

 With the ignition switched on, the navigation

data is updated automatically.

Current navigation data for large regions, for
example Western Europe, can be downloaded
from www.seat.com and stored on USB data
devices.

Download the navigation data to a USB data

device.

Turn on the ignition of the vehicle.

Connect the USB data device to the infotain-

ment system. Navigation data is automatically
updated in the background.

Infotainment system

Telephone interface

Introduction

Fig. 191 

Schematic diagram: Phone view.

You can use the telephone interface to connect
your mobile to the infotainment system and op-
erate phone functions through it. The sound is
played through the vehicle's speakers.
You can connect up to two mobile phone devi-
ces simultaneously to the infotainment system.
High speeds, poor weather or road conditions
and a noisy ambience (even outside of the ve-
hicle), as well as the quality of reception can all
affect the quality of a telephone conversation
in the vehicle.

Note

As a general rule, pairing a device (for ex-

ample, a mobile phone device) is only nec-
essary once. You can restore the device con-
nection via Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi with the info-
tainment system whenever you want without
having to pair the device again.

The availability of some telephone func-

tions will depend on the mobile phone con-
nected to the infotainment system.

WARNING

Notifications on the screen of the mobile de-
vice can distract the driver’s attention and
increase the risk of a serious accident.

 Only place one suitable mobile device,

with Qi compatibility if applicable. To ensure
that it operates properly, place it without
the protective case and ensure that it has
maximum dimensions (width x length) of 80 x
140 mm (3.15 x 5.512 inches) on the base of
the Connectivity Box as indicated.

If the mobile device is not placed on the

base of the Connectivity Box, in the correct
position, or if its dimensions exceed those
specified, it may not be recognised or may
not charge correctly. Under certain circum-
stances, the infotainment system indicates

that there is a foreign object in the storage
compartment. Using a suitable mobile phone
device and correcting its position can elimi-
nate the fault.

If necessary, remove any objects that may

obstruct the cover’s closing function.

WARNING

 The mobile phone may heat up due to the

wireless charging. Think about this before
you pick it up, and take care when removing
it.

There must be no metallic or other objects

between the mobile phone and the housing,
to prevent the functionality of the Connectiv-
ity Box from being affected.

Note

Your mobile device must support the Qi

inductive charging interface standard for
proper operation.

The charging time and the temperature

vary in accordance with the device used.

The maximum charging capacity is 5 W.

Qi technology does not allow you to

charge more than one mobile device simul-
taneously.

No improvement in reception can be guar-

anteed if there is more than one mobile
phone on the pad.

You are advised to keep the engine running

to guarantee proper wireless charging.

When a telephone with Qi technology is

connected by USB, it will be charged by the
means specified by the manufacturer.

. When doing so, please consider

all legal provisions.

Distribute the load in the vehicle as evenly as

possible.

Always place luggage and heavy objects as

far forwards as possible in the luggage com-
partment 

››› 

.

Take into account the maximum authorised

weight per axle, as well as the maximum au-
thorised weight of the vehicle 

››› 

page 384

.

Secure the objects to the fastening rings

of the boot using appropriate chains or belts 

››› 

page 295

.

Also place small objects safely.

If required. raise the rear seat backrest and

lock it.

In vehicles with dynamic headlight range

control, the lights adapt automatically.

Adapt tyre pressure to the load. Take into

account the pressure sticker of the tyres

WARNING

Loose or unsecured objects can cause seri-
ous injury in case of sudden manoeuvring
or braking or in case of an accident. Partic-
ularly if the airbag hits them when deploying
and they are thrown across the inside of the
vehicle. Please observe the following rules to
minimise the risk of injury:

Place all objects inside the vehicle safely.

Secure all objects, little and large.

Place the objects in the cabin in such a

way that they can never reach the airbag de-
ployment areas while the vehicle is in motion.

Keep the storage compartments closed at

all times while the vehicle is in motion.

Place the objects in such a way that they

never force any occupant of the vehicle to sit
in an incorrect position.

When transporting objects that take up a

seat, never let anyone use that seat.

Never leave hard, sharp or heavy objects

loose in open storage compartment of the
vehicle, on the cover behind the rear seat or
on the instrument panel.

Remove all hard, sharp or heavy objects

from the fabrics and bags inside the cabin
and store them safely.

WARNING

The transport of heavy object changes vehi-
cle handling and increases braking distance.
Heavy objects that are not properly placed
or secured may cause loss of control of the
vehicle and thus severe injuries.

Never put too much load in the vehicle.

Both the carrying capacity as well as the
distribution of the load in the vehicle have
effects on the driving behaviour and braking
ability.

When transporting heavy objects, the driv-

ing behaviour of the vehicle varies due to the
displacement of the centre of gravity.

Always distribute the load in the vehicle as

evenly and horizontally as possible.

Always place heavy objects in the boot be-

fore the rear axle and as far away from it as
possible.

Objects in the luggage compartment that

are unsecured could move suddenly and
modify the handling of the vehicle.

Adapt your speed and driving style at all

times to suit visibility, weather, road and
traffic conditions.

Accelerate with particular care and cau-

tion.

other body parts out of the operating area of
the hinges and the locking mechanism of the
seats.

Mats or other objects can be caught in

the hinges of the seat backrests or the seats
themselves. This would cause the backrests
not to be locked correctly in an upright posi-
tion.

For the rear seat belts to offer the neces-

sary protection, the rear backrests must be
properly engaged vertically. If someone is
seated in a seat whose backrest is not prop-
erly engaged they will be thrown forwards,
along with the backrest, during an accident
or a sudden driving or braking manoeuvre.

A red mark on unlock lever

Fig. 196

 in-

dicates that backrest is not engaged. If the
back rest is locked correctly, the mark is not
visible.

When a rear seat or its backrest is folded

down or not correctly engaged, do not let
anyone use that seat (not even a child).

There are fastening rings 

››› 

Fig. 204

 on the

front and rear of the boot to secure loose
objects and luggage with fastening belts and
cords.

WARNING

If unsuitable or damaged belts or retaining
straps are used, they could break in the
event of braking or an accident. Objects
could then be launched across the passen-
ger compartment and cause serious or fatal
injuries.

Always use belts or straps that are suitable

and in good condition.

Tighten the belts and straps in a cross

layout over the load placed on the boot
floor and secure them to the fastening rings
safely.

Never exceed the maximum tensile load of

the fastening rings when securing objects.

Make sure that, particularly for flat ob-

jects, the upper edge of the load is higher
than the fastening rings.

Depending on the features, take into ac-

count the instruction panels on the boot on
how to place the load.

Never secure a child seat to the fastening

rings.

Note

The maximum tensile load that the fasten-

ing rings can support is approx. 3.5 kN.

Belts, straps and securing systems for the

appropriate load can be obtained from spe-
cialised dealerships. SEAT recommends visit-
ing a SEAT dealership for this.

Roof carrier

When the tailboard is lowered or is not

properly engaged nobody else can travel
in the corresponding seats, particularly chil-
dren.

Roof carrier

Introduction

The vehicle roof has been designed to optimise
aerodynamics. For this reason, cross bars or
conventional roof carrier systems cannot be
secured to the roof water drains.
As the roof water drains are integrated in the
roof to reduce air resistance, only SEAT-ap-
proved cross bars and roof carrier systems can
be used.

Cases in which cross bars and the roof car-
rier system should be disassembled.

 When they are not used.

When the vehicle is washed in a car wash.

When the vehicle height exceeds the maxi-

mum height, for example, in some garages.

WARNING

 Always secure the load properly using

belts or retaining straps that are suitable and
in a good condition.

Bulky, heavy, long or flat loads have a neg-

ative effect on aerodynamics, the centre of
gravity and driving performance.

Avoid sudden braking and manoeuvres.

Adapt your speed and driving style at all

times to suit visibility, weather, road and
traffic conditions.

NOTICE

 Remove the cross bars and the roof carrier

system before entering a car wash.

Vehicle height is increased by the installa-

tion of cross bars or a roof carrier system
and the load secured on them. For this pur-
pose, check that your vehicle's height does
not surpass the headspace limit, for exam-
ple, for underpasses or for entering garage
doors.

Cross bars, the roof carrier system and the

load secured on them should not interfere
with the roof aerial or hamper the path of the
panoramic sun roof and the rear lid.

On opening the rear lid make sure that it

does not knock into the roof load.

For the sake of the environment

When cross bars and a roof carrier system
are installed, the increased air resistance
means that the vehicle uses more fuel.

Securing the crossbars and the roof
carrier system

Fig. 208 

Attachment points for the roof

railings for the roof carrier

The crossbars are the basis of a series of spe-
cial roof carrier systems. For safety reasons,
special fixtures must be used to safely transport
luggage, bicycles, skis, surf boards or boats on
the roof. Suitable accessories can be acquired
at SEAT dealerships.

CarManuals2.com

298

Storing objects

Always secure the crossbars and the roof car-
rier system properly. Always take the assembly
instructions that come with the crossbars and
the roof carrier system in question into account.

Installing the bars

The crossbars are assembled on the roof
railings. The distance between crossbars 

››› 

Fig. 208

 

A

 should be between 75 and

90 cm and the distance between the crossbars
and the brackets of the roof railings 

B

 must be

15 cm.

WARNING

Incorrect attachment and use of the cross-
bars and the roof carrier system may cause
the whole system to detach from the roof
and cause an accident and injuries.

 Always take the manufacturer assembly

instructions into account.

Check threaded joints and attachments

travelling and if necessary tighten them after
you have travelled a short distance. When
making long trips, check the threaded joints
whenever you stop for a rest.

Do not modify or repair the crossbars or

roof carrier system.

Note

Always read the assembly instructions that
come with the crossbars and the roof carrier
system carefully and keep them in the vehi-
cle.

Loading the roof carrier system

The load can only be secured if the crossbars
and the roof carrier system are properly instal-
led 

››› 

.

Maximum authorised cargo on the roof

The maximum permissible roof load is 

75 kg

.

This figure comes from the combined weight
of the roof carrier, the cross bars and the load
itself on the roof 

››› 

.

Always check the weight of the roof carrier
system, the cross bars and the weight of the
load to be transported and weigh them if nec-
essary. Never exceed the maximum authorised
roof load.
If you are using cross bars and a roof carrier
with a lower weight rating, you will not be able
to carry the maximum authorised roof load. In
this case, do not exceed the maximum weight
limit for the roof carrier which is listed in the
fitting instructions.

Distributing a load

Distribute loads uniformly and secure them cor-
rectly 

››› 

.

Check attachments

Once the cross bars and roof carrier system
have been installed, check the bolted connec-
tions and attachments after a short journey and
subsequently with a certain frequency.

WARNING

 Never exceed the maximum authorised

load on the roof and on the axles or the ve-
hicle's maximum authorised weight.

Never exceed the load capacity of the

cross bars and the roof carrier system, even
if the maximum authorised roof load has not
been reached.

Secure heavy items as far forward as

possible and distribute the vehicle load uni-
formly.

WARNING

If the load is loose or not secured, it could
fall from the roof carrier system or cause ac-
cidents and injuries.

Always use belts or retaining straps that

are suitable and in a good condition.
