Have not been successful finding this in the book.

Can anyone tell me how to turn the radio off while using the GPS without turning off the entire unit?

Go to Audio, change to a media that's empty (like Sd card), that way navi will be on, but no audio is active.

For the R171:

If you just want the radio or music to fade out or go quiet when the Navigation lady talks, then you can go into the Navigation system menu and choose Maximum Fade Out.

Press Nav. Within the Navigation Screen, press Setting > Nav. Vol > choose Maximum Fade Out (by using the up and down on the cursor so that the radio button next to the Maximum Fade Out is highlighted or filled in). Press OK.

If you just want the music/audio to be off, while the COMAND screen shows the map and the music is sounding its thing, press MUTE button just below the COMAND screen. Music will be off and the Sat Nag Lady will still tell you the verbal instructions.

Maybe the function is similar in the R172 with COMAND Nav.

. . . and if you want the SatNag Fraulein to be louder, just turn the volume up when she's ordering you where to go (or, if she's keeping quiet, just hit the little speaker button, and she will repeat her last utterance, then turn the volume up ).

Is it in the main system menu? Or it may be in the soft key menu within navigation?

Select Navigation and destination.
Select media which is not currently loaded eg SD card.

The audio portion of navi is still audible, but no music or radio is playing because I chose a "device" which doesn't have anything loaded.

Jeff - on the 2.5, you should have the options to fade, mute, etc. - want to say it was included in the 01/11 telematics update. I'll go poke in the '55 tomorrow - it's a bit late tonight! :)
