Best buying experience for me. Every option but BLIS. I would have liked the retractable mirrors but I can live without them. Great deal and I was so glad to find an awesome salesman (Charles Mechura) at Volvo of Orange County in Santa Ana, CA that it made everything worth it to me. Celestial Blue/Calcite Cream interior. Had it shipped to Staten Island, NY in perfect condition, no damage, everything works, and I'm thrilled. I'd deal with these guys again in a heartbeat. Purchased and bought a 7yr warranty too.
I truly tried to deal with a few places in nearby NJ and no one wanted to go the distance to find what I wanted fully loaded. They kept trying to talk me out of packages that I knew I wanted. I didn't want to settle so I started searching the internet for what I wanted. So glad I did.

#44 of 79 C70 Nav System
Jun 07, 2008 (7:14 am)
I am considering a C70. I understand that the navigation system is not voice activated (a big drawback, I think), but I cannot find anything that says whether it is touch screen or not. Also, I have heard that you cannot get the nav system and the IPod adapter. Anyone know more about these issues? Thanks.

Nav isn't touch screen.
There are controls on the steering wheel and a remote.
Nav is only programmable when the car is stopped.
The USB interface is compatible w/ the Nav system.

Lovely. I have my C70 3 weeks now and the last thing I need to learn how to use is the NAV system. I would not have bothered adding it if I knew it was not voice activated. That's awful. I have voice activated NAV on my Touareg and I can tell you I never ever look at the map to see where I am. The voice just guides me along. I also program it as I'm driving. Aren't both systems by NavTeq? I know the Touareg is. I think I truly wasted my money on this feature. Should have gotten the Garmin portable. Live and learn. I thought I did my homework too.

Voice activated means that YOU can give verbal commands to the unit.
The C70 Nav system has a voice, and can give you voice instructions.
Why didn't your salesperson go over the Nav system with you?

I am able to operate the nav system while moving. Other cars I have had do not allow this (for safety reasons) and I was surprised that Volvo would. I will admit that the $230 Garmin portable we have for another car is touch-screen and much easier to program and offers more functionality. The crazy thing with the Volvo system is that the ENTER and BACK buttons are in reversed positions on the steering wheel and remote control, respectively. Makes it tough since you memorize the button possition for the steering wheel but have to mentally reverse for the remote. Where is the focus group when you need one???

Oooooh! Thanks. The salesman is 3000 miles away and obviously couldn't show me anything. I live in NY and purchased in CA. He did go over a few things while I was in the car on my cell but thanks to AT&T's "wonderful" service in my area, it kept cutting us off so we decided to go over the car when I was at a better location. I guess there are things I'll have to discover on my own, the nav being one of them. I also don't understand the best settings for the dynaudio system.
