Yes of course.. i do that only on the snail's pace traffic. Swiftnfurious' comment is also correct for higher speeds as braking will be difficult there. Thanks for your inputs

Friends, Finally took delivery of my XUV500 W8, Satin white last Friday. I am an ardent fan of XUV and it has only increased in the last couple of days. The feature list is exhaustive and I am yet to try/use them. Visibility is really good and the drive is best on highways. Will write a detailed review after a month or so.

Everyone in the family loves the vehicle for the space, looks and the features. Looking forward for the exciting ownership.

Special thanks to Team-BHP / BHPians.

Smile Navigation in XUV - Issue or Expected Behaviour

Dear All,

I am putting here my observation with XUV Nav system: want to know if is it as expected or an issue, which I need to get corrected via Service Center.

1: To go from Location A to Location B, google maps shows multiple route options, and user can pick up any one route to start navigation. However in nav system of XUV, it take one route as default for same travel of Location A to Location B.

Is this default behaviour of XUV nav system or there is an upgrade of nav system missing in my vehicle.

My XUV is Aug 2014 manufactured, and last month in first service at 5K kilometer, Nav was supposedly upgraded.


2: There are few important locations missing in Nav. One example: Passport Seva Kendra at Thane( Mumbai). While searching for the same, I was being routed to Back office of RPO Thane, which was 1-1.5 KM away from PSK.

So which made me think, how often does the map get updated( once in a year or once is 2 years or more)

Any idea on this?


Thanks in advance,

I have not seen the nav system showing multiple options. It shows the shortest route. I do not think there are frequent updates to the maps...may be once in 2 years or more... Mine is also a Aug 2014 model and there was no update till date.

Pardon me for my ignorance, but don't all nav systems come with an option of "Fastest route" or "Shortest Route"? The fastest route may not necessarily be shorter.

Cheers

Thanks.

As per G3 motors Nerul, multiple options should be shown in Nav system. Hence they asked me to send my XUV for upgrade.
But I wasn't sure, if their info is correct, hence put the question on this forum to get views from people.

Another query here: can we get to know, which MapmyIndia version is being used in XUV. What I understand MapmyIndia version 9.0 got released in first hald of 2014. So did XUV nav system get this update or not?


Regards,

Balpreet

Hello username,

Zulaikha motors is the best based on my experience. I am giving my XUV there from 2012 onwards. The RMs are knowledgeable and provides best services. Most of spare parts are available in stock I was told.

Congrats Vivek. Good choice. Btw I am jealous of you guys in North and other states. W6 is about 14.8 on road in Bangalore due to high taxes after discounts

Yes I am also in the same boat as you. Got my W8 delivered end of March. So far so good though too early to give any real inputs.

Talking Re: Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

Sorry SDP, SuperTinu & others.
Booked my Satin White W8 yesterday( My son chose the colour). Since the car is being purchased through CSD hence will take more than a month to deliver. The process starts by dealer booking the vehicle and the factory sending one on my name.
Just keeping my fingers crossed regarding the refresh because it will take about 3-6 months before the refresh is available through the CSD after the launch and I can't wait that long. Why delay the fun, So went ahead with it. Wish me luck.
