NAVIGON 40 series: the new freedom of choice in the mid-range

The new NAVIGON 40 series is a group of devices to suit a wide range of different users. It spans the entire product range, from the Easy device through to the Premium model with or without Live Services. It also includes new features to make navigation easier.

IFA2010_NAVIGON40Premium_Left_RealityViewPro_OneClickMenu_UKBerlin, IFA 2010 – There has never been so much choice: NAVIGON is introducing four new models with the 40 series. Easy, Plus, Premium and Premium Live are the names for the new generation of devices: “In no other NAVIGON range is there as much choice as in this segment,” explains Jörn Watzke, Executive Vice President Product Line Management at NAVIGON. “We are offering four different models in the 40 series, making it easy for drivers to find the right navigation device for them. At the same time, our catchy product names also provide improved orientation when purchasing.”

Features to suit your needs
The 40 series, with a 4.3’’ display, is positioned below the 70 model range. In the middle of this series is the NAVIGON 40 Plus, which, in addition to convenient fittings, also has two new features. “Active Lane Assistant” ensures that you keep your bearings, ensuring even more safety particularly in hectic traffic situations: it shows the drivers when they should indicate their intention to change lanes in a dynamic, live accompanying animation. With “One Click Menu”, three favourite POIs can be shown on the display simply by clicking once, anywhere. Additionally, users benefit since they will see a larger map section on their display, as less important information will be removed. Users can also import their own destinations in CSV format via the Fresh software easily and organize them into individually named groups. Tried-and-tested features such as “Reality View Pro” and “Text-to-Speech” assist in fully concentrating on traffic and ensure relaxed driving and arriving. Drivers with greater demands in terms of convenience should opt for the Premium model. It includes all the functions of the NAVIGON Plus and also enables you to not only make telephone calls via your navigation device using the “Bluetooth hands-free kit 2.0”, but also differentiate between private and business calls. With the NAVIGON 40 Premium Live, drivers can also access real-time information. With the start of a new price structure in September customers who buy the new model get five Live services 15 months inclusively. In addition to the established services such as “Clever Parking Live” or “Weather Live”, the latest traffic information has also been optimised further. “Traffic Live” now not only notifies drivers about obstacles on motorways, but also on main roads and country roads. The NAVIGON 40 Easy is the best choice for occasional drivers, for whom simply navigating their way from A to B is the priority. They can access all the basic features to ensure reliable route planning at an attractive, value-for-money price.KASTEN_40er_EN
