How to Use the Nissan Navigation System 

It’s become common place to have a navigational system included in a vehicle, and Nissan models are no exception.  In fact, Nissan uses sophisticated technologies to ensure that you reach your destination without hassle.  And to make it easier for you, here’s how to use the Nissan navigation system. 

Getting Started with the Nissan Navigation System 

Like many other available features with Nissan vehicles, you are able to add a navigation system to the model you wish to purchase.  The navigations will appear on the display screen in the center console, that way it isn’t overly distracting as you drive.  It will also give audio directions and messages so that you can keep your eyes on the road.  Though, like other features, there are aspects of the navigation system that can only be used while parked and cannot be accessed while the vehicle is in motion.

Using the Nissan Navigation System 

Although each Nissan model can be slightly different, and the layout can change over the years, the system is still used the same way as it always has been.  For instance, some models have a button that says “NAV,” while some have a button with “MAP,” and there are even some that have a button that says both; however, that is your access point to the navigation system.  Then, like a regular GPS, the system will ask you to enter information in designated fields in order to find where you are going. 


If you have any questions regarding the Nissan Navigation System or which models have it available, you can contact us online or by calling 281-973-0058.

    I have just purchased a 2019 Nissan Rogue. I am trying to enter information into the Navigation system. When adding a new destination, it asks for the street address etc. and the system accepts all information. I would like to give a name to the destination, such as “Grocery Store” or “Hardware Store”
    However I only get the street address displayed in the directory. How do I give each destination an individual name and not a street address?
    I have read the manual and the connect manual and I cannot find this information. Please give me step by step instructions.
    Thank you.

  2. I have sirius XM Traffic on my 2016 Nissan Maxima
    The other day a blue dotted line with an arrow showed up on the screen.
    I cannot find a legend anywhere to tell me what that means. Sirius XM cannot help me.
    Hopefully you can.
    Where can I find this information?
    thank you
