What do you set your programmable/preset buttons to?

Right now I only have 2 phone numbers preset. I'm just curious to what others are doing.

2 Questions:

Does anyone have a picture of these buttons?

No. You just have normal radio presets. With Nav, the presets become executables.

It's a pleasure. And the real time traffic info is great. I always punch up the nav on my daily commute, so that the car will warn me of any congestion ahead.

I need help with two things....

How do I program my button to show the real time traffic news? I tried it today, no cigar

How do I program my button to show the navigation map in the direction of travel? Again I tried and no cigar?

I dind't even think of that, now I have to decide which ones to replace, likely the 50m Nav screen.

It doesn't work for me. I think because you have the new navi (mine is a 2008) it might be different

I have two buttons programmed, one for home and one for work.

When I leave home for work, I press the work button. When I leave work for home, I press the home button.

I don't need directions – I keep the voice prompts off – but as long as the nav system "knows where I'm going" it will monitor traffic along my route.

There are three ways to see congestion:

1. Displayed on the main nav map.
2. Displayed on the traffic info list.
3. If the problem is *really bad* the nav system will pop up an alert.

Hope this helps.
