Delphi Selects TeleNav for Its Next Gen Navigation Systems

Turn-by-turn navigation for cars has been a boon for those among us who can barely find our way around the block, but as competition between in-dash units and smaller, portable units heat up, many automaker suppliers are revolutionizing their navigation offerings to keep a leg up on the competition, and help get consumers where they want to go, faster and easier. Delphi, for instance, has teamed up with TeleNav to provide navigation solutions that will work with cars’ newer infotainment systems.

The traditional problem with in-dash navigation systems is that they don’t age well. You buy a car and the navigation is perfect, but as time marches on, other systems get more features, better layouts, and, most importantly, more accurate route information. So by the time your car is five years old, the navigation system becomes a hinderance rather than a help. TeleNav looks to change that.

Telenav’ s new system will bring new features and usability to your car that will work seamlessly and easily. Some new features include:

Global Maps and Places: Search, localized maps, and POIs for more than 60 countries around the world.

Live Traffic: Save time with live traffic updates that automatically reroute you around traffic jams or road congestion.

Local Weather: Get real-time weather and forecasts for your current location

3D Landmarks: 3D buildings and historic landmarks make it easier to navigate

Voice Control: Stay safe and keep your hands on the wheel with voice-activated commands

Junction View: A navigation view that makes complex lane changes simple and easy

TeleNav and Delphi look to have these systems in OEM offerings by 2012. It won’t be too long then until the next generation of navigation technology.
