The Navigation Image is the default mode, and will only be overridden

the Navigation image will remain on at all times.

automatically enable an internal timer. The timer is adjustable between 10
Seconds (further left) to 3 minutes (further right).
D. When the Navigation System is in guidance mode, every time a turnby-turn voice guidance command is received, the Navigation image will
automatically turn on and remain on for the pre-selected time set by the
Slide Switch. After the pre-set time has expired, the Navigation display will
turn off and remain off until the next voice command is received.
