Press Setup and then press Display Off. From there you can press Shutdown or leave the time displayed.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by slocko:
i also cannot figure out how to turn the navigation system off after you have used it during a trip. sometimes i use to check something and then i just want to shut it off to get the time display.</font>
I think you missed my point. Imagine you have selected your house and are letting it guide you home. Before arriving home, you decide to stop at the nearest house of ill-repute. (I haven't actually checked - is there a category for this under Advanced?) You go there only to find it is closed. So you tell the NAV to guide you home.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">if you set up personal addresses, i think you have no choice but to use a password. in a way i don't mind because i have my home address in there in case i get lost on my way home i can just select home and have it guide me. if my car gets stolen i rather not have the thieves know how to get to my house so the password is not so bad.</font>
Yes but you still have to press a key just to get that display! So you haven't improved the situation at all. Either way, one has to press a key.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by groupset:
I'm not aware of any way to make the nav screen default to "off" or any other option at startup. It does go through the "disclaimer" screen, but after a few seconds and with no input it defaults to the "starfield" screen. Simply leave it alone after start up; don't press anything and it will revert to the starfield display. Once it's displaying the starfield, press the clock display and it will move to the center position - not a bad looking display in my opinion.</font>
Are you saying you use the personal list without a password? Or are you saying you don't use the personal list at all?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">As for the password problem, I've never entered a password and it's never asked me for one. You or another driver must have entered a password to set up a personal list of destinations at some point in the past; it's remembering that and wants verification before proceeding. There's a way to reset the whole system and clear out all destinations and passwords; I'll check the Helm manual when I get a chance.</font>
Sorry, wasn't trying to be pointless, just helpful. If you'd like to sell your navi, I know a fellow over on the Acura-Tl.com forum that might want to buy it.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by donlibes:

You only have to press the clock once for it to forever display in the middle when the starfield screen comes on. If you never press another key again every time you start the van afterwards, it will go through the disclaimer screen and then display the starfield with the clock in the middle (without pressing it).
Are you saying you use the personal list without a password? Or are you saying you don't use the personal list at all? I want to use the personal list. Telling me that I don't need a password if I never use the personal list is rather pointless.</font>
