C-max Grand Titanium 2lt Powershift with Sony Sat Nav.
Can anyone explain how to turn off the voice for the sat nav/traffic warnings?
Particularly;"the road is closed" when it isn't"narrow lanes warning" for lanes regularly used by buses.
I have unchecked the traffic assist box and reduced the Sat Nav audio mix to +0 but now I am lost for ideas.

My old Nokia 5230 phone (Now obsolete) can do better than that! AND It's FREE! FOREVER! I have never been impressed with any built in satnav I have yet seen. There isn't one I'd change for my original TOMTOM One, now about 7 years old and still working perfectly! I just wish the car companies would stop the "Built in" fad, and just give us a dash-top platform that could mount and power after market gizmos like satnavs, phones and mp3 players. It could be universal with adapters for specific accessories. If they can do it for iPods, why not for something that all us "Apple Haters" can use?I think the best "Built in" Satnav I have ever seen was a de-mountable TomTom system in a Toyota Yaris. When you plugged it into the car, it powered up and used the system speakers, but it had all the advantages of a standard TomTom, in that you could take it with you, update it online and all the other stuff that makes them THE market leader. I just wish other car makers would do the same!

Thanks for you reply. I'm not that familiar with my built-in sat nav to compare but I won't be surprised to find that it is not as good as my old Tom Tom.
I seem to have found the solution. When I view the map there is mute option on one of the function buttons.

Muting the sat nav has not stopped the "narrow lanes" warning.
If anyone can tell me how to switch the warnings off I'd appreciate it.

Tomtom do a manual for their module for the Sony XNV multi media unit which I was going to attach but it's way to big. It should be here though
