NAVIGON Live Services with new services and lower prices

NAVIGON is making its Live Services even more attractive. With two new services, Fuel Live and Events Live, the navigation specialist from Hamburg is expanding its familiar services as part of the Live Services Pro package. At the same time, the company is introducing a new price model for its real-time services.

NAVIGON70PremiumLive_FuelLive_D Berlin, IFA 2010 – NAVIGON has expanded its Live Services: The two new features, “Fuel Live” and “Events Live”, supplement the tried-and-trusted services for “Live Services Pro”1. The seven real-time features are included in the new NAVIGON 70 Premium Live2. In addition, new customers of all NAVIGON Live devices can now benefit from a new price model for dynamic information services by using the respective Live package free of charge for the first 15 months. The company is also dropping the prices for all customers who want to extend the services. The Clever Flat now costs €49.95 for 12 months; 24 months cost €99.953. “By enhancing our Live Services we are ensuring that our customers have even better orientation,” says Jörn Watzke, Executive Vice President Product Line Management at NAVIGON. “It is a way of consistently pursuing our strategy and strengthening our reliable navigation with real-time services, which means we can guarantee both reliable and flexible route planning for an increasing number of users.”

Live Services Pro: the two new additions
Fuel Live is easier on the nerves and the wallet. At the touch of a button, the service provides an overview of all filling stations in the vicinity. This not only saves the stressful search, the driver can also find out the price per litre4, informing them which filling pump to drive to for the best deal. The preferred type of fuel can be set in advance. A traffic light system also rates the filling stations according to whether they generally offer good value for money or not. For instance, a green “thumbs up” symbol denotes reasonably priced stations. This real-time service is available in nine European countries5.
With the Events Live service, the navigation device becomes a leisure and travel manager, allowing the user to search for event tips in 24 European countries6. There are various categories (such as “rock” or “classical”) and rubrics (like “festival” or “concert”) to choose from. An overview of events taking place over the coming days is displayed. These can then be directly chosen as a destination. Further information on location, times and entry prices is also provided for the user. Both services can easily be selected using the Live Services menu.
The familiar Live Services are still available to users of all NAVIGON Live devices, including the latest news on the traffic situation (“Traffic Live”), information on mobile radar speed detectors (“Mobile Safety Camera Live”), details on available parking spaces (“Clever Parking Live”7), weather forecasts for any location as well as on route (“Weather Live”) and the option to search for an unlimited number of special destinations selected by the user, such as restaurants or businesses (“Google Local Search”).
