Navigon–Poetry In Motion?

Both the Navigon 70 Plus and Navigon 70 Premium have new features including a motion sensor, an enlarged map section and the Active Lane Assistant.

Both the Navigon 70 Plus and Navigon 70 Premium have new features including a motion sensor, an enlarged map section and the Active Lane Assistant.

Due to its 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 fast processors, 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 three months, ensuring that they stay up to date with road changes.

The Active Lane Assistant shows the driver when to change lanes and sets the car’s indicators with a dynamic real-time animation. 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.

In comparison with the Plus models, the Premium version offers three additional features: Panorama View and Landmark View, which provide realistic depictions of the environment, while Professional Voice Command 2 allows drivers to communicate with the navigation system in a conversational tone.

Another 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.

The new Motion Sensor 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 due to the standard 5-inch display, the route is now much easier to see than on other devices. Users also 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 stroke over the frame. With its aid, it is now possible to control all key functions of the system with a word.
