Question How to shut up the GPS lady

Hello,

Joined the fisker family today (will post a welcome message tomorrow when I have taken a picture) and while driving home with the GPS on I was annoyed by the navigation voice.

Is there any way to shut off the sound for route guidance for the current route or always?

Thanks for your help.

Here's a link to the owners manual. (BTW - the manual says you can hold the lock button down to pre-cool/warm the cabin ... that was never implemented).

Here's a link to the touch screen manual. The Touch Screen guide should tell you how to control anything on the screen:

What you want is on page 21: To cancel the current navigation, touch the
MENU icon and select STOP ROUTE

If you are actually using the GPS, her voice level will be set by the radio volume. Same with bluetooth phone calls.

Hoi JC, thanks for your reaction.

In the other cars in which Ii had a navigation system there was a possibility to mute the voice of the guide. I can not seem to find the option/button to be able to do that in the Karma.

It is possible to do this, just play around with the functions and screens. Whether it will actually work and respond is another question!. Good luck.

Hello Harleyguy,

thanks for your tip. I turned off the speeh warning burt that does not influence the voice navigation guidance.

The voice indicating the way to go comes on to often and to loud. For now I use my smartphone to navigate.

The trick is as soon as the voice of the lady comes on, immediately turn down the volume to the lowest possible. This way, it does not affect your stereo but will almost shut up the lady.
