The Amundsen navigation infotainment system is based on the Bolero infotainment system and also offers a navigation function with attractive graphics and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Two tuners ensure radio reception, while a third tuner is dedicated to TMC (Traffic Message Channel) reports. Using the integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, occupants can surf, stream and send emails to their hearts’ content using up to eight mobile devices.

The Columbus navigation infotainment system sits at the top of the range (optional from the Ambition trim level upwards). In addition to the features of the Amundsen system, it has an internal 64-GB flash memory and a drive for DVDs and CDs. An LTE module provides a fast internet connection; the driver and front passenger are thus always online. The system’s 9.2-inch screen provides a resolution of 1280 × 640 pixels. Destinations are requested by text entry or voice command in the vehicle.

In addition to the display and operating concept, the new compact SUV has a gesture control feature for selected functions (available for the Columbus navigation infotainment system). A camera detects and identifies defined hand movements that the driver makes around the centre console. This allows the driver to scroll through the infotainment system’s menu with the swipe of a hand, and without taking their eyes off the road.
