Recovery position

If you rummage about in the menus system, you will come across several handy features. Roadside Assistant lets you select your rescue provider from a list – only the AA and RAC are included for the UK – and then dial them direct while the screen shows both your exact location coordinates and a description of your general position.

Parking Assistance doesn’t stop you reversing over small children and dogs but rather shows the location of nearby car parks when you get within 1km of your destination. Trip Planner, as the name suggests, is a stand-alone menu for creating multi-stop trips.

The same is true of the bundled CitySeekr travel guides.
