As an interesting aside the GPS in the touring has a setting for best fuel usage as an option on your destination settings. Probably not as precise but it might be a first step.

Interesting...Do you think it is based off of speed, or do you think they considered terrain?

If I was a smart guy I think they probably use both bits of info. I haven't tried using it though since I basically don't go anywhere except to work and back. Big blue is better for chore driving on my days off since it's a plug in and I can do everything on battery mode. It also heats without using the engine.

So I was using my in-car built-in NAV on my TOURING trim. I've used my Android cell phone Car Play NAV on my past 2 vehicles.

Do you guys find the Android Car Play NAV much easier/user friendly to use?

ie... Voice command on the Android Car Play NAV.,
Also if there is a slow down ahead, the Android NAV would tell you if it's a 5min, 10min, 20min slow down up ahead and marks the road "red" in color...

These are some of the things ive seen using the in-car NAV yesterday on my TOURING trim.
Have you tried setting eco routes on the in dash nav? Wondering how well it works. I rarely use the gps since I rarely go anywhere I don't know about, so I haven't tried it myself.

Thank you..i will try out the "less fuel" selection....

As for now, the Android Car Play NAV is more user friendly. I can actually select different pre-planned routes...and also avoids up coming delays/heavy traffic/accidents up ahead so to go around it for a different route.
