Two new NAVIGON Live Services: “Fuel” and “Events” supplement tried-and-tested real-time services

The new NAVIGON Live Services are making navigation even more efficient. In addition to tried-and-tested categories such as traffic and parking, the Hamburg-based navigation specialist will soon also be offering dynamic information on fuel prices and events.

NAVIGON70PremiumLive_FuelLive_DHamburg and Munich, IFA PreViews 2010 – NAVIGON has further developed its Live Services: the two new services “Fuel Live” and “Events Live” have been added to the tried-and-tested package. The extended range will be launched with the NAVIGON 70 Premium Live model. “By extending our Live Services, we are responding to increasing demand for flexible navigation solutions,” says Jörn Watzke, Vice President of Product Line Management at NAVIGON. “We are thus continuing to follow our strategy and are enriching the onboard technology that is currently available with dynamic real-time services. We therefore guarantee flexible and reliable route planning for our customers.”

Fill up at low cost
“Fuel Live” is good for both drivers’ nerves and their wallets. The service provides an overview of all petrol stations at the push of a button. This not only spares drivers the stressful hunt for a filling station, but also gives them the price per litre1, thereby showing them which choice makes the most financial sense. The preferred type of fuel can be defined in advance. A “thumbs-up” symbol also shows which petrol stations are generally cheaper. The real-time service is available in ten European countries.

The navigation device as an event manager
With the “Events Live” service, the navigation device is once again becoming a leisure and travel manager. Users can search for event tips in 25 European countries2. To enable them to do this, a range of categories (such as “Rock” or “Classical”) and headings (such as “Festival” or “Concert”) are available to choose from. The navigation device displays a list of events that are taking place in the next few days. These can be transferred directly into the route guidance. Users can also find out information on the venue, time and admission prices.

Launch with the new Live PNA
Both services can be accessed easily via the Live Services menu before or during the journey. Alongside the additional services, customers can also use the tried-and-tested Live Services . “NAVIGON is also continually working to further develop its existing services,” says Watzke. “Traffic Live” therefore now also covers Hungary, Ireland, Poland and Slovenia, meaning that it now covers 18 countries in total. The new Live Services will be launched for the first time with the new NAVIGON 70 Premium Live. The price and availability of the Live Services are still to be confirmed. The new services will be rolled out to all NAVIGON Live devices in the future.
