Telenav, Inc., a provider of connected-car and location-based services, announced that its connected navigation is a key component in the latest generation of the Opel Multimedia Navi Pro Infotainment System found in the automaker’s Insignia models (Grand Sport, Sports Tourer, Country Tourer, and GSi; and in Astra vehicles later this summer).
Telenav’s intelligent, connected car platform understands individual driver patterns and applies these insights to deliver more personalised searches. The connected-navigation solution uses over-the-air (OTA) map updates and online, real-time traffic alerts to guide the user to his/her destination the best way possible. Telenav routing integrates with real-time traffic data to provide drivers with personalized route options enhanced with up-to-the-second ETAs, traffic incidents, and speed flows.
The Opel Multimedia Navi Pro Infotainment system also has Telenav’s One Box Search feature that provides drivers with accurate, fast, and real-time results. Telenav’s Search Analytics Learning Engine constantly retunes to provide an enriched search experience that is consistent between text and voice, regardless of connectivity.
Telenav connected navigation provides Opel Multimedia Navi Pro Infotainment system users with features like proactive key address detection enhanced with auto-suggest and word prediction, real-time traffic and ETA, easy destination entry with One Box Search with auto-suggest and word prediction, real-time destination information showing hours of operation, and gas and parking prices and smart POI icons showing fuel options when gas is low and parking options when approaching destination.
Other connectivity features baked into the infotainment system include enhanced voice recognition, cloud connectivity and over-the-air map updates with minimal user interaction, no usage interruption, and driver notification when a new map is available.
“We are excited to supply our connected-navigation expertise to the new Opel infotainment platform,” commented Hassan Wahla, Co-President of Telenav’s Automotive Business Unit. “Our connected navigation services provide users of the Opel Multimedia Navi Pro system with optimum points of interest and destination searches, as well as Live Traffic, real-time fuel prices, parking information, and over-the-air map updates. Its use of a Telenav-designed user-experience interface ensures an intuitive layout with direct access to audio, phone, and navigation applications, making every ride in the vehicle a relaxing and enjoyable experience.”
