New device generation: NAVIGON 70 models make 5 inch-navigation easier than ever before

Drivers hardly even need to touch the new NAVIGON 70 Plus and 70 Premium models to take advantage of all their features. Both models now include a motion sensor that reacts to movement. Further innovative features make navigation easier than ever before – for instance the active lane assistant. Campers and lorry drivers can also benefit from it – NAVIGON offers a customised Premium version for lorries and caravans.

IFA2010_NAVIGON70Plus_Left_ActiveLaneAssistant-SafetyCamera_MotionSensor_UKBerlin, IFA 2010 – The NAVIGON 70 Plus and NAVIGON 70 Premium are the beginning of a new generation of navigation systems that set new standards of user-friendliness. In addition to their elegant styling, they offer particularly innovative technologies such as the “Motion Sensor”. An enlarged map section and the “Active Lane Assistant” round off the outstanding range of features. The Premium version can be operated using “Professional Voice Command 2.0”, while the “Bluetooth hands-free kit 2.0” helps drivers to manage their businesses more efficiently. Both devices are equipped with one of the fastest processors, which are used in PNDs at the moment – a  520MHz processor with ARM11-core.

Excellence improved
The active lane assistant shows the driver when to change lanes and set the car’s indicators with a dynamic real-time animation. “With our latest innovations, navigation systems can be operated so casually that drivers can concentrate their full attention on the traffic situation,” explains Jörn Watzke, Executive Vice President Product Line Management at NAVIGON, “NAVIGON’s focus is always on safety and comfortable handling.” Other important functions are “TMC Routing Info” including speech output and “Reality View Pro” that NAVIGON now presents with advanced graphics.KASTEN_70er_EN

The Premium version for frequent drivers
Anyone who is on the road frequently and needs a navigation system for business reasons benefits from the Premium version. In comparison with the Plus model it offers three additional key features that are particularly valuable for extensive tours and when time is of the essence: Thanks to professional voice command 2.0 drivers can communicate with the navigation system in a conversation tone. Another fantastic feature for business travellers: thanks to the Bluetooth hands-free kit 2.0, drivers can not only take their calls via the navigation system, but also connect it to two mobile phones in parallel. City View3D 2.0 supports safe driving and shows buildings with a degree of transparency that lets drivers see the route ahead well in advance even in heavily built-up areas.
With the NAVIGON 70 Premium Caravan & Truck version, lorry and motorhome drivers can drive particularly safely in 44 European countries. The model includes all Premium features, comes with “Premium TMC” as standard and the special Caravan & Truck software only calculates routes that can be traversed without any problem. The user simply has to enter data about the height, width and axle load of the vehicle so that a route can be chosen that suits the individual vehicle profile. Since several vehicle profiles can be stored, the device can also be used for a small fleet of vehicles. You can also choose from 16,000 additional POIs, like DKV filling stations, 24-hour shops or lorry washes.

Navigation with a wave of the hand
The new motion sensor is integrated in both new models.1 For example, the sensor reacts to intentional movements close to the display. In this way, driver’s can call up the menu panel or “NAVIGON MyBest POI”. The map section is enlarged when the panel is deactivated, and thanks to the standard 5" display, the route is now much easier to see than on other devices. NAVIGON has enhanced the POI Service with another new feature. Users now have the option to import their personal favourite destinations in CSV format with Fresh-Software and organise them in specially named groups.

Prices and availability:
NAVIGON 70 Plus and 70 Premium models both feature the extended map material package EU 43 that now also includes Iceland, Moldova and Ukrainia. The NAVIGON 70 Plus costs €199; the NAVIGON 70 Premium costs €279. The NAVIGON 70 Premium Caravan & Trucks, with maps for 44 European countries, will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010 for €349.
