NAVIGON Flow – the new, easy way of navigation
Hamburg and Munich, IFA previews 2011 – Intuitive operation and user-friendliness have always been at the heart of the NAVIGON brand. That is why the navigation specialist has equipped its devices with numerous clever features in recent years, which allow users to drive stress-free and arrive at their destination safely. Yet such features will only make life easier if they are actually used. That is as much the case for navigation devices as it is for smartphones. For instance, every day the majority of users only take advantage of a fraction of the features available on their latest mobile phones: they mostly use them for making calls or surfing the Internet.1 Additional features are only seldom used, if at all.
Time for new navigation software
It’s a similar situation with modern navigation devices: continual enhancements in recent years mean that the devices now offer numerous useful features that make driving safer and more comfortable. Yet this growing range of features and their integration in operating systems also means that the devices are becoming ever more complex to operate. “We have learnt from our users that only very few of them take full advantage of the range of features on their devices,” says Jörn Watzke, executive vice-president of Product Line Management at NAVIGON AG. “For us, that was a crucial indication that the time had come to develop a new software so that the diverse features on modern navigation devices could be used intuitively. With NAVIGON Flow we have consciously decided to adopt a new approach instead of building on the range of features on our existing system.”
