Navigate to a destination

You can use the Compass application to help you navigate by direction rather than by a driving route, for example, if you are in an area with no roads or if you are walking to your destination.

Before you begin:

In order to perform this task, GPS technology must be turned on.

  1. On the home screen or in the Applications folder, click the Compass icon.
  2. Press the Menu key > Set Destination.
    • To find your destination on the map, place the cursor on the map.
    • To search for a specific location, in the Search field, type the address or the latitude and longitude coordinates. Tap the destination.
    • To search for a point of interest, such as a business or landmark, in the Search field, type the information for the point of interest. Tap the destination.

The compass displays the direction of the destination.

After you finish:

To clear the destination from the compass, press the Menu key > Clear Destination.
