Our Discover Navigation Systems

The ultimate in media entertainment and navigation

Discover Navigation

The Discover Media Navigation System combines excellent navigation features with in-car media entertainment – all controlled from its easy-to-use 6.5" or 8“ touchscreen colour display^.

The 2D/2.5D navigation comes with European maps displaying a range of useful information, such as points of interest and speed limits. To help you avoid congestion, this system even offers you three routes – fast, short and eco-friendly – based on traffic messages.

With DAB/FM/AM radio*, CD drive and multiple file playback from SD and AUX IN, you can enjoy listening to music on the four high quality 20 watt front and rear speakers. And Bluetooth telephone connection lets you make or receive hands-free phone calls with on screen status display.

Discover Navigation also includes Car-Net Guide and Inform.

Our 2nd Generation Discover Navigation Pro is optional on the new Golf. With innovative gesture control, it's easy to move around in the main menu or - with a single hand movement - to switch radio stations or songs, for example.

It has a larger, 23.4 cm (9.2 inch), TFT touchscreen for a first-rate 3D map display, and - with one USB interfact, two SD car slots and Bluetooth - has fantastic connection options. It also features a CD player that even plays MP3 and WMA files, as well as DAB / FM radio reception and eight loudspeakers.

Additional highlights include that the voice-activated controls respond to place names and street names and calculate a route according to your instructions. The vehicle's Bluetooth technology makes using the phone easier. Last but not least, the internal Flash memory has more than enough space for five years of free updates for your navigation software.
