Default 2011 Nav "Follow Me" Mode?

To date, I never use the Navigation system, even for new local areas I haven't been to before -- it's easier to use my mobile devices...


...AND, because in the past, I could never figure out a way to get the nav to just show my current position WHEN no address is entered.


Must it ALWAYS have a destination to work? Is there no way to enable it to always show my current relative position on the map as I drive without manually moving the screen? Seems an obvious missing feature if so.


Please share your thoughts.

I thought when the nav was turned on, with no destination input, it always shows your location and direction of travel. It could be just a setting that needs to be changed.

Two options
1) click the button that says "Map". Mine is the lower-right soft menu button when you are looking at the "enter a destination" screen
2) click the hands free voice recognition button on your steering wheel, wait for the beep, then say "Map"

I can take pictures if it would help. Nav is an expensive option to not get your money out of. I bought it partly for the backup cameras.

Good tips. Plus, there is information in the MMI owners manual that can walk you through settings etc.

Press the back button when the map is fixated on one place and not following you. Took me forever to figure that out.

Thanks ... I'll give it a try. +1

Regarding not RTFM, I bought the car used and it was absent. I've figured everything else about it on my own but this one had me dunced. I knew my fellow, friendly, considerate, helpful Audiworld friends could help! (just a little poke Reg!) LOL
