Question about Kenwood Excelon KVT-915DVD Car DVD Player

Navigation won't navigate!

Every time I try to get it to tell me the directions to a location I get a message saying "Voice guidance not available in this area." I have tried turning the guidance off, mute, on, everything...I can't get it to work. I tried ejecting the dvd hoping that would reset it, but it still gives me the same message. What can I try? Thanks!!

Make sure that you have the speed sense wire (VSS) hooked up. I had the same problem with mine. Hooked up the VSS and it has been great ! Good luck

Are you using a copied disc or an original article? With some burned disc you will loose alot of the functions because the map is on the first layer and the functions are encoded in the second layer. Let me know.

I can not get my 2014 Ford Focus Titanium to sync driving directions from www.mapquest.com


Here is what Ford says to do. You might want to check to make sure your account, phone and vehicle information is correct. If this does not work, then recommend contacting Ford customer service for additional assistance. Google maps is no longer available for Ford vehicles.

Here are MapQuest instructions:

How Can I Send Directions to My Ford's SYNC Navigation System?

Keep your eyes on the road and connected to the world when you send your destination using MapQuest to your Ford Sync system. You must have an active Sync subscription and register your account on the Sync Owner Site to use this feature.
  1. Map your destination*
  2. Select Send, located in the upper right-hand corner of the map
  3. From the drop down menu, click on Car
  4. Select Sync
  5. Enter your Sync Mobile Number and enter your destination name
  6. Click Send
  7. After receiving notification that the location was successfully sent, press the Voice button on your steering wheel and say "Services"
  8. Say "Yes" when Sync asks if you'd like directions to destination you selected online
  9. Once the route download is complete, the SYNC voice will provide the turn-by-turn instructions to your destination
Please Note: The Send to Car option is only visible after you have created your route. Only voice navigation will be enabled when sending route information to your Ford Sync system.

Tip

Why Android is Better than the iPhone, iOS 5


As with past iPhone updates, iOS 5 plays catch-up with Apple's competitors and Android in particular, while adding unique features such as Twitter integration, iMessage, and online storage through iCloud.<br /> <a href="http://factoryarticle.com/?attachment_id=267014"><img src="android-vs-ios-iphone-490x286-300x175.jpg" /></a><br /> But is that enough to solidify the iPhone's standing as the best smartphone around? Not necessarily. Android still has several features that the iPhone lacks, and may still be worth considering if these features are important to you:<br /> 1. GPS Navigation.<br /> Android phones have offered free, voice-guided GPS since October 2009, whereas the iPhone's Maps app requires users to look at their handsets and read off directions as they drive.<br /> The iPhone has third-party apps with turn-by-turn voice guidance, such as Mapquest, but Android's built-in method allows users to jump directly into navigation from address links in other apps. With the iPhone, you must manually copy and paste the address into your app of choice.<br /> 2. Widgets.<br /> Android widgets can show certain types of information directly on the home screen, such as breaking news, sports scores, incoming messages, or media playback controls. In fairness, a lot of Android widgets add unnecessary clutter to the phone, but if you can find the right widgets for you, they'll either save time or present information that you might've otherwise overlooked.<br /> 3. Hardware choices.<br /> Software features aside, Android provides more hardware choices for phone buyers, including handsets with bigger screens, physical keyboards or features not yet available on the iPhone, such as dual-core processors. The iPhone 4's hardware is excellent, but it may not be the perfect fit for you.<br /> 4. Expanded voice commands.<br /> The rumor of expanded voice commands in iOS5 didn't pan out, so for now, Android provides more voice command options that are built directly into the operating system.<br /> Android users can dictate e-mails and text messages and get directions by speaking to the phone. They can also load music in third-party apps such as Pandora with the "listen to" command, whereas the iPhone's music-by-voice feature is only linked to the iPod app.<br /> 5. Setting Default Apps.<br /> The iPhone's lack of native GPS navigation wouldn't be an issue if you could set third-party apps as the default for certain functions. On Android, if you want to use alternative apps for mail, Web browsing or navigation, you can set those apps as the default for all related functions.<br /> For instance, setting Dolphin HD as the default Web browser opens all links from other apps in Dolphin instead of the stock Android browser. It's a subtle feature that makes customization much easier on Android compared to the iPhone.<br /> About author:<br /> Chary Telford, the writer of digital multimedia software from <a href="http://www.dvdrippermacos.com/">dvd ripper for mac</a>, makes it easy to find what software, including <a href="http://www.dvdrippermacos.com/tutorial/mac-dvd-to-avi.html">dvd to avi mac</a>, <a href="http://www.dvdrippermacos.com/tutorial/mac-dvd-to-mp4.html">mac dvd to mp4</a>, etc, are the best for you. Any suggestions to my writing please leave your precious message.<br />

Why doent my gps speak s


The things you'd want to check first are:
1. the volume of your speaker is not turned off ...
2. your GPS (navigation) software supports voice navigation - directions /commands ...
3. you have (installed & selected) a navigation voice (e.g. standard or computer voice)
4. you have done a "reboot" ... or "hard reset" ... to start the software up again.
If all of these are OK ... and you previously had heard navigation voice on your GPS ... but suddenly, there's no more navigation voice, then it is possible that the navigation software (voice portion) got corrupted. If that's the case, you would want to try to restore your software from backup (using HOME), or download a copy of the navigation software from TomTom.com (for your device type/class) and install it.

2004 honda accord ex w/navigation lost guidance voice


It lost the voice and or the voice crackles... I had that same problem. Eventually the entire thing will go out. Check to see what brand CD/DVD drive is mounted in the trunk. Mine was Alpine. If yours is too here you go: Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.
(800) 421-2284 Ext.860304
or
(800) ALPINE-1 (1-800-257-4631)
I paid $150 and the entire thing was fixed. I uninstalled the unit that the DVD for the navigation is in then sent it out. I re-installed it and it worked like new. The dealer charges labor and JACKS up the price. Go directly through the maker!

My Garmin GPS no longer speaks the directions like it used to--still makes the beeps when pressing the buttons, but no voice giving directions


Check the preferences. You didn't say what model you have, but if your menu is the same as mine, here's how:
- go to tools (the icon is a wrench)
- navigation
- if "voice prompts" says "None" you've found the problem. Change it to "Guidance/Status"
One more thing to check:
- click "Back" and choose "Locale"
check the language selection (the one with the lips icon is for the spoken language) and change it if necessary.

10 seconds after a voice guidance
prompt, the unit disconnects your call.

available, the unit announces the
remaining recording time after the last
message is played back.

How does gps navigation work on htc touch diamond


Yeah, google maps does not navigate, it only shows your location, and shows directions, but I think it should follow you with the gps, I can't check at the moment as my gps is broken...

But I do know for sure that it will not tell you, with voice and text, when to turn and how much of a distance you have to make that turn, etc.
Navigation software is a must if you are planning to use it while driving..Google Maps is enough if you ask me though, but only if you have an unlimited data plan...otherwise get navigation software, which has the maps stored as data straight on your phone.

Check the navigation setup and make sure the voice guidance is set to on. If it is, then the installer didn't catch the right wire for vss. Had the same problem, after getting my unit professionally installed, figured it was a problem with unit so I upgraded to the G510 and installed the DV4100 in my other vehicle myself, caught the right vss wire and now the unit works perfectly,displays turn by turn and gives voice guidance. Read previous solutions, they really help.
