Here are some new features in firmware 6.0.

And if he goes on the traditional route, which is now suddenly closed for repairs or due to traffic jams, then immediately after the car will advise an alternative route - a pop-up window will appear on the 17-inch panel. Accordingly, a route to unfamiliar places is now also going considering traffic information.

The function is relevant for those vehicles that are equipped with, in fact, this mechanism.
