Navigation System viewing on front TV while traveling

Am i wrong in remembering that during our PDI, the dealer told us of a way to display the Navigation system on the front overhead TV? this on our 2016 Anthem.
Thanks.

Set the TV to AV. On the dash gps/radio select the Mode button, touch Settings, put Aux Zone on RV GPS and it should work for you.

Why would you want that? You have to crane your neck to see it, which IMO is dangerous

Much less dangerous to glance up at a large screen then down at a small screen.

I don't think so. The console mounted is constantly in your periphery, the TV is not. But I have my 9" monitor mounted on my dash so it'e even easier to see

Putting the nav screen on the front overhead TV minimizes the "Are we there yet? How much longer" questions from the grand kids.

Having NAV on the TV above the dash is great for the Co-Pilot. Also, if you decide to take a trip to Alaska and follow the Mile Post, the NAV system automatically switches to Metric when you cross into Canada and back to miles when you cross into Alaska. The mile marker on the NAV display corresponds to the Mile Post book exactly. The Co-Pilot with Mile Post in hand will know what is coming up and where. A great addition to the adventure.

I often drive solo to my racing events. That's why I prefer the above dash mounted version

Frankly, I'd prefer an iPad dock which could enable my wife to set things up, then dock the iPad and also pipe the output to the overhead display.

Don't you fancy coach guys need a device anyway for VT?

The orientation of the in dash units is horrible. Too far from the driver to program without great distraction, and requires the copilot to program while kneeling in the aisle.

My workaround over the summer was to pre program the NAV for each destination before we launched. This way, I knew I had each address stored.

Waze and iMaps made up the difference.

P.S. If you don't have Trucker Path, check it out.

Thanks so much. The Aux Zone was what I was missing. thanks so much.
FYI, this is not for the driver but more the co-pilot. she can now have some visibility.

thanks again.

Your welcome! The DW is the biggest reason we have the gps on the overhead TV as well, she can provide navigational aid. Also when at an intersection turning or any time the turn signal is on the nav unit switches to the side camera view and the gps is lost so having the gps on the overhead TV is a great benefit.
