Your navigation system is comprised of two main features, destination mode and map mode.
Map mode shows advanced viewing comprised of 2D city maps, 3D landmarks and 3D city models when available. 2D city maps show detailed outlines of buildings, visible land use, landscape features, and detailed railroad infrastructure for the most essential cities around the globe.
3D landmarks appear as clear, visible objects that are typically recognizable and have a certain tourism value.
3D city models are complete 3D models of entire city areas including navigable roads, parks, rivers and rendered buildings. 3D landmarks and city models appear in 3D map mode only. Coverage of these varies and improves with updated map releases.
