Travel Pilot DX - A4 -

Hello,
I have on my A4 (2002), a (GPS) Travel Pilot DX (model with LCD colour screen)
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/jean-max/AUDI/audi-a4int.jpg
My Problem :
I doesn't find how to plan a travel form City (A) to City (B), but passing by City (C) and City (D)
The final project would be: City (A) -> (C) -> (D) -> (B)
Can you help me to have what I am searching for ?
Thanks for all :-) and Best regards
Jean-Max

We had a Travelpilot in our Bora. It only had the functionality to plot a route from the current position to the final destination. You couldn't set up an itinerary. I expect that the DX is the same.

I feel I've set up a stop off on mine - albeit accidentally. I'll take a look tomorrow. I'd imagine that I set the destination, and then set the stop-offs, so (B), then (C), then (D).

Hello,

Good :-))
Tell us how you introduced the stops (C) and (D) inside the itinerary (A) -> (B)
I am waiting for your useful info

I've just upgraded to an RNS-E, so no longer have the old Navi to play with, but don't you set a final destination (calculate route?) and then press the 'Return' button to enable entry of stop-overs?

OK, I just tried it. You enter your normal destination and then start the navigation. Once it's calculated your route, press Navigation again and the next destination you enter will be a "stopover". It seems to only let you do one though, so you can only have (a)->(b)->(c).

Hello,

Thanks for the idea ; I will try this !
When we are arrived in the intermediate "stopover", does the navigation system automatically continue (restart) to the scheduled final destination ?

Hi there,
Yes it does automatically move on to the final destination. I also found it slightly disappointing that you can't set multiple intermediate waypoints, but before you start your journey you can set all the required places as destinations. Use the "Sort" function to place those points at the top of your memory then it's easy to pick the next one when needed.
For example, if I drive from Bath to Peterborough Mildred (as she is fondly known) may try to send me along the M4 west, M5 north, M42, M6, A14 and A1. But if I preferred to go generally north-east past Oxford and Northampton I would set up the following destinations: 1 - Oxford 2 - Northampton 3 - Peterborough
Then set out along the M4 until you are somewhere past Swindon (which you can see on the on-screen map) and start navigation to Oxford. When you get somewhere near Oxford stop navigation and re-start it with Northampton as the target. Then, when close to Northampton stop navigation again and choose Peterborough as the final target. It's not ideal, but it does work provided you remember to set it up before you start your journey.
I haven't updated my CDs lately but I see the latest ones for the UK include the TMC function via a Classic FM data feed. Has anyone tried this feature?
regards, David.

You can not have more than two locations active at any one time. In simple terms, you can only enter one final destination, and one *via* destination. For example, if I lived in Rennes (Brittany), and wished to travel to Toulouse (Midi-Pyrenees), but I needed to stop in say Dijon (Burgundy) - I would first have to enter Toulouse as my final destination, let it calculate the route, and then, whilst the Toulouse route is still active, then enter Dijon as a *via*. One point to mention though - the distance remaining, and arrival time will only show for the first city you arrive at, in this instance Dijon. As soon as you arrive at Dijon, it will then automatically clear Dijon and then display distance remaining and arrival time for Toulouse.
If you must have more than two cities, in your case four, there are two ways of working around what you want - each method has differerent advantages.
If you have time before you start your journey, method 1 would be to enter city B and let it calculate the route. When it has finished calculating, stop the navigation, and enter city D and allow it to calculate. Again, after it has finished calculating, stop navigation, then enter city C, allow it to calculate route, then stop navigation, and enter city A, let it calculate, and start driving. This may seem a strange way of doing things - but each of the cities you have just entered are in the *destination memory* of the unit. So when you reach the first city, you can very quickly select the next city from the memory without having to select each letter from the menu.
Another method would be to enter city D, let it calculate, and when it has finished, add city A (as in my Rennes > Dijon > Toulouse example above). After you arrive at city A, and it clears itself from the unit, and starts to display city B details, then add city C. When you get to city C and it clears, add city D.
Another method would be to first enter city C, and then city A. When you get to city A, stop navi for C. Enter D as the first, and then select C from the memory. When you get to city C, stop navi for D. Then add city B, and then select D from memory.
You really need to have some trial and error to see which method works the best.

Hello Sean,
Thanks for all ! You confirm with complete explanations, what told us Andy Turner : Only ONE "via" destination possible in programming : it's a pity..
Thanks for the different solutions to solve that ! Storing in advance the different stops seems the best idea, so, in each stop, it's easy to indicate the next stop, because it's stored in memory
Again, thanks to everybody for your replies :-)
It seems that next Travel Pilot DX on Audi A4 (GPS model with screen colour) will be no more on CD, but on DVD , (one only DVD for whole Europe for example) But, do you know if multi stops will be possible ??
Best regards

The new DVD-based systems which Audi are fitting are no longer Travel Pilots. In fact, they're not even manufactured by Blaupunkt, but by a Japanese company called Aisin. A single map disc covers the whole of /Western/ Europe. So, for instance, I can set a route from home (in the UK) to a street/house number in Italy.

Yes, it is possible to set up to three stop-overs.
The good news is that it is possible to retro-fit the new system into most recent model Audis. For instance, I have replaced the old CD-based Nav plus in my RS6 with one of the new units.

In the DVD based RNS-E:
Can anyone tell me whether it's possible to nail the display with North Up? I find I can set it there temporarily both from the display setting and also from the Setup button, but the display still flips back to direction up at the next opportunity. Is there somewhere to make a more permanent option setting for that and then have it really stick?

Ohhh - that sounds interesting - do please tell us more. Does the new DVD unit come with the TV / Teletext tuner as well? Was it a dealer fit, or did you DIY?

Okay - units are frequently available on ebay, but there are other sources.

No, the TV tuner is a separate unit, similar, but not identical, to the TV tuner for the older CD-based Nav+. This means that if you have the old unit with TV, as I did, you also need to change the TV tuner.

I don't know of any dealer who would be prepared to undertake this. I did it all myself, but if you don't feel confident, there are some individuals around who will do the fitting.
I spent around 900 sourcing all the bits, and recouped much of that by selling my old CD-based system for 450.
