A prime example of innovative strength: the new NAVIGON 70 Premium Live

The NAVIGON 70 Premium Live plans routes reliably and flexibly, performs commands in no time at all and impresses with its sophisticated design: NAVIGON is now using the model to present the highlight of its new product range.

IFA2010_NAVIGON70PremiumLive_Left_CityView3D2.0_UK Berlin, IFA 2010 – The NAVIGON 70 Premium Live is a prime example of the innovative strength of NAVIGON. The device offers many clever features and shines with well-thought-out hardware. In addition, it complements the navigation technology with dynamic information, providing both flexible and reliable navigation. Besides the five tried-and-trusted Live services, the NAVIGON 70 Premium Live also features two new Live services. The Live module for receiving Live services is integrated for the first time. All seven Live services on the NAVIGON 70 Premium Live are available to the customer for 15 months free of charge. “With innovative technology and a comprehensive array of equipment, the NAVIGON 70 Premium Live is ideal for business travellers and discerning drivers,” says Jörn Watzke, Executive Vice President Product Line Management at NAVIGON.

Everything live: “Fuel” and “Events”
The new Live services once again turn the navigation device into an efficient route manager. At the touch of a button, “Fuel Live”1 gives an overview of every filling station in the immediate vicinity and along the route. Besides giving the price per litre, a green “thumbs up” symbol denotes filling stations that are particularly cheap. With “Events Live” 2 you can search for events in a particular town or area. Once you have chosen from various categories (such as “rock” or “classical”) the navigation device presents a list of events taking place over the next few days, giving the user detailed information on the venue, time and ticket prices. The services can be conveniently accessed via the Live services menu before or during the journey. Filling stations are also shown on the map as POIs. In addition to the new services, customers can also use tried-and-tested services  like “Traffic Live” , which NAVIGON is continually enhancing.KASTEN_70PremiumLive_EN

A particular highlight for long journeys
The 5’’ display on the NAVIGON 70 Series increases the size of the map for a better overview. The active lane assistant shows the driver when to change lanes using a dynamic travelling animation. Three further features provide useful services: “City View3D 2.0” ensures the driver is well prepared and displays buildings as semi-transparent so that the road ahead is visible behind the buildings. Thanks to the “Professional Voice Command 2.0” you can communicate with the navigation device using colloquial language. A further highlight is the “Bluetooth hands-free kit 2.0”, which not only lets you make and receive calls via the navigation device, it also distinguishes between private and business calls. The device also has a very fast 520MHz processor with an ARM11 core.

Price and availability:
The NAVIGON 70 Premium Live features the expanded EU 44 map material, which now also covers Iceland, Moldova and the Ukraine. The model will be available in the beginning of the fourth quarter 2010 for €349.
