Need help operating or updating the navigation system in your Peugeot 3008? Read on to learn more, or get in touch with the friendly team at Perth City Peugeot. We will be happy to assist with any queries.

Do all variants of the Peugeot 3008 have Sat Nav?

All variants of the current Peugeot 3008 – Active, Allure, GT Line and GT – have 3D navigation. The satellite navigation system is linked to both the 8.0 inch colour touchscreen and the 12.3 inch digital instrument panel.

The system is optimised for Australian mapping and 3D city mapping in available areas. It also features voice recognition for radio and telephone functions, so you can keep your hands free while driving.

How to use the GPS Navigation in Peugeot 3008

On the 8.0 inch touchscreen, you can access a number of functions including zoom via particular buttons, or by pinching or spreading your fingers. It is also possible to get the navigation system to repeat the last instructions if you missed them.

Using the quick access feature, you can control which particular items are shown on your map. For example, you might want to see where the closest fuel stations are, if there are any points of interest nearby or how heavy the traffic is on your route.

There are a number of ways to enter an address into the system. Firstly, simply enter the address into the navigation menu by following the prompts for city and street. It is also possible to use voice recognition to enter an address verbally.

Alternatively, you can add ‘favourite addresses’ such as your home or workplace in order to access them quickly. You can also access recently searched addresses or use addresses saved in your phone contacts. Finally, you can simply select a point on your map and ask to be guided there.

How to update Peugeot 3008 Sat Nav

It is important to keep the navigation system in your Peugeot 3008 up to date. An out of date system won’t have any new roads or points of interest, and therefore might not offer you the optimal route to your destination. For convenience and to save time and petrol, keep your navigation system up to date.

If you need to update your navigation system, Perth City Peugeot can help by providing you with the latest Australian updates. Once you have downloaded the firmware and licence onto a formatted USB, insert the USB into your vehicle and open the navigation settings menu. From here, follow the prompts to apply the update. Keep the ignition on, and the USB stick inserted until the screen indicates the update is complete.

What is Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance?

In case of emergency, Peugeot has developed SOS technology so you don’t need to remember or search for any numbers. This innovative technology is just one of the features that make the Peugeot 3008 top of its class. The vehicle has an inbuilt SIM card and phone. Together with the satellite positioning system, your Peugeot 3008 will be able to call for help if needed.

Using the Peugeot Connect SOS, the car will call for help automatically if your airbags are inflated, but you can also press the button to call for help manually. Peugeot Connect Assistance can put you in touch with someone if you have a problem but don’t need emergency services.
