The onboard computer offers you an array of functions designed to foster safety
while simultaneously enhancing your driving pleasure.
The GPS navigation system frees you from the burden of reading maps or looking
for road signs. It will guide you to any destination recorded on your map CD/DVD.
The radio, with its superb reception quality, joins the cassette and CD players in
providing optimal sound to satisfy every taste while serving up entertainment to
make every trip seem short.
The computer calculates vital operating data – including average fuel consumption,
cruising range on the remaining fuel and the estimated time of arrival. It provides
additional safety before driving – for example, with entry of a code number for the
engine immobilizer – and during driving – for example, with an acoustic warning
tone so that you do not drive faster than you intend to.
We wish you an enjoyable driving experience.
