Reading the Navdy Display

The Navdy display shows detailed maps, turn-by-turn directions, and current traffic levels. Navdy includes a built-in GPS and we use information from HERE maps, so you always have an accurate view of your route.


Device Status Indicators

If your phone and/or dial isn't connected to Navdy, your display will notify with an icon and message:

  • Disconnected Dial
  • Dial Low Battery
  • Dial Severely Low Battery
  • Phone Low Battery
  • Phone Severely Low Battery
  • Network Disconnected


Traffic Color Codes


Your route will change colors depending on traffic levels.

  • Gray - no traffic data
  • Green - clear traffic
  • Orange - moderate traffic
  • Red - heavy traffic
  • Blue - on route


Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA)


During an active trip we'll show your estimated time of arrival. This includes:

  • the time you'll arrive at your destination
  • how long it'll take you to get there



Navdy reads your car's speed through the OBD-II connection and presents your speed in either:

  • Miles per hour (MPH)
  • Kilometers per hour (KPH)

Tip: If Navdy cannot read the vehicle's speed through the OBD-II port Navdy will present the speed from its built-in GPS. If Navdy has no GPS signal we'll present the speed from your connected phone's GPS.
