Navigation Options  - 2012 Volvo C70 Review - Reviews - Volvo C70

Volvo offers two navigation options: a common factory system that's built into the dashboard and a Garmin handheld system that mounts in the car.

Our test car came with the factory system, which uses either a remote control or a couple of buttons and a knob on the back of the steering wheel. It isn't easy to use, and there's a long delay before it responds to commands. I didn't test the portable Garmin option, and though removable systems have their own drawbacks, if I had to have a navigation system, I'd take my chances with the handheld unit over the in-dash system.
