The latest maps at all times with FreshMaps – now also available for NAVIGON EU 23 devices

Two new NAVIGON features turn the journey to your holiday destination into a relaxed experience. NAVIGON, the creator of the FreshMaps concept, is now also offering this service for the EU 23 models, enabling even more customers to ensure that they always have the latest maps at an attractive fixed price. Language fans can make their journey go faster by taking a crash course with NAVIGON: the Amusing Voices feature is now also available in English.

mapsandservices_freshmaps_teaser_ukHamburg, 21 May 2010 – Europeans enjoy going away on holiday on four wheels. But out-of-date maps can spoil a holiday even before you have travelled very far, as several thousand kilometres of roads change every year. NAVIGON is now the first provider to also offer its map subscription service – the ideal way to prepare for such issues – for its upper entry-level model range: FreshMaps is now also available for devices with the EU 23 map package1, such as the NAVIGON 3310max.2

 
High-level navigation
NAVIGON created the FreshMaps concept and has now been offering it to those using its devices that come with the EU 40 map material for two years. FreshMaps provides the latest map material to subscribers every quarter for a two-year period. “Our aim is to enable as many people as possible to benefit from the latest developments”, says Jörn Watzke, Vice President of Product Line Management at NAVIGON. “That’s why we are gradually transferring the advantages of our mid-range devices over to our entry-level models. We are thus setting standards on the market and are raising the bar even higher in terms of the level of mobile navigation. This not only applies to special features, but now also includes map material.”

Always up to date
NAVIGON FreshMaps provides users with a comprehensive data package comprising the latest map material every three months, which then updates the previous material. The update includes all new and amended data relating to roads and points of interest. Subscribers are notified by newsletter when new information is available. The new maps can be downloaded easily from the free NAVIGON Fresh download portal online onto your own navigation device. NAVIGON FreshMaps is now available for devices with the EU 23 map package from the online shop at www.navigon.de and priced at 84.95 euros. Customers buying a new EU 23 device will benefit from an 80% discount code , which they can redeem on their purchase of NAVIGON FreshMaps EU 23.
