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.

  • Dial Severely Low Battery

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

 

Speed

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.
