New device generation: NAVIGON 70 models make 5 inch navigation easier than ever before
NAVIGON 70 Plus and 70 Premium models include new Motion Sensor that reacts to movement, allowing users to operate the device with barely even touching it
Sydney, August 18, 2010 - NAVIGON AG, one of the world's leading manufacturers of navigation solutions, today announced the launch of the NAVIGON 70 Plus and NAVIGON 70 Premium. In addition to their elegant styling, both models offer particularly innovative technologies that make navigation easier than ever before. The new functions include a Motion Sensor, an enlarged map section and the Active Lane Assistant. Thanks to the Bluetooth hands-free 2.0 kit, the Premium version can be connected in parallel to two mobile phones and operated with the improved Professional Voice Command 2.0. Both devices are equipped with one of the fastest processors available for navigation units, which are currently used in PNDs- a 520MHz processor with ARM11-core. They also come with a free two year subscription to NAVIGON FreshMaps, with new maps every 3 months, ensuring that they stay up to date with road changes over the long haul.
The Active Lane Assistant shows the driver when to change lanes and sets the car's indicators with a dynamic real-time animation. 'With our latest innovations, navigation systems can be operated so casually that drivers can concentrate their full attention on the road', explains Gerhard Mayr, vice-president worldwide mobile phones & new markets at NAVIGON. 'In addition, it's now possible to store personal favourite POIs in the system as CSV files.' Other important functions are, for instance, Traffic Information including speech output and Reality View Pro that NAVIGON now presents with advanced graphics.
The Premium version for frequent drivers
Anyone who is frequently on the road and needs a navigation system for business reasons benefits from the Premium version. In comparison with the Plus models, it offers three additional key features that are particularly valuable for extensive tours and when time is of the essence: Panorama View3D and Landmark View3D provide realistic depictions of the environment. Thanks to Professional Voice Command 2.0, drivers can communicate with the navigation system in a conversational tone. Another fantastic feature for business travellers is the Bluetooth hands-free 2.0 kit that not only lets drivers make and take their calls via the navigation system, but also differentiates between private and business calls.
Navigation with a wave of the hand
The new Motion Sensor is integrated in both new models. It reacts to intentional movements close to the display. In this way, driver's can call up the menu panel or 'MyBest POI'. The map section is enlarged when the panel is deactivated, and thanks to the standard 5" display, the route is now much easier to see than on other devices. NAVIGON has also enhanced their POI service with another new feature. Users now have an option to import their personal favourite destinations in CSV format with Fresh-Software and organise them in specially named groups. Voice control can now be activated by a casual stroke over the frame. With its aid, it is now possible to control all key functions of the system with a word. In the words of Gerhard Mayr, 'This means that our voice-controlled operating feature is now even better. While a precisely controlled diagonal stroking movement across the display was required for our previous models, now only casually touching the device is enough.'
Price and availability:
NAVIGON 70 Plus ($329) and 70 Premium ($399) models are available at Harvey Norman stores around Australia. Both devices come with maps of Australia and New Zealand.
