A new device for navigation specially designed for India was launched today by NNG and Ayana Navigation Solutions (ANS). This new personal navigation device ANS navigator A 501 is pre-loaded with the latest India maps and a total of over 7 million Points of Interest (POI) for continued reliable navigation.
Commenting on the scope of navigation devices in India, Péter Bolesza, Vice President of EEU and Emerging Markets at NNG, said “India has a diverse demography and with increased urbanization, navigation solutions have become the need of the hour. We are convinced that iGO primo – easy and quick to use, and optimized for the Indian road system – makes driving an enjoyable and stress-free activity.”
This 5 Inch navigator device runs on iGO primo software by NNG. You can fix your destination using The Integrated Quick Search (IQS) feature. As soon as you enter the first three letters the software searches through all locations so that you can pin point yours with ease. Another important feature of this device is Intuitive Navigation feature. It interprets user’s behavior and offers alternate options. For example if your speed slows down it understands that you are stuck in traffic and offers detours for faster navigation. It also points to various petrol pumps and restaurants on your way.
For more exact destination-finding, addresses can be stored as individual points on the map. The facility of voice navigation is also present which also refers to various shops and monuments on the way thus acting like a travel companion.
Enhanced junction view, with realistic depiction of complex turning points is present to aid your driving. You will also be provided with online traffic messages that warn the driver of congested road sections. This smart navigation system calculates the best route based on the day of the week and the time of day after considering your past usage data.
The unit comes with a 1-year map update guarantee from NNG’s update portal and promises to change your navigation experience. The new ANS navigator A 501 will be available in car dealerships, retail channels & aftermarket accessory stores from October, 2013.
