NavFusion_logoNavFusion - Map updates and connectivity made simple

The latest innovation from NNG

NavFusion™, the freshest feature of iGO Navigation provides a simple and future-proof way to integrate smartphones into vehicles. The infotainment system is fully functional as it leaves the factory. Downloading and using the free smartphone application is optional.

NavFusion™ essentials

When NavFusion™ connects the smartphone to the car, all data is automatically synchronized, including the map and content package in the user’s smartphone and head unit, by using the phone’s internet connectivity. This approach is available to any car with iGO Navigation software in its infotainment system. It merges the ”App Store” ecosystem and the very personal nature of the smartphone, enabling the use of navigation inside and outside car.

NavFusion

Easy map update process for the head unit via the smartphone
Well-established and familiar payment process via the in-app shop for online services and map updates
Contacts, favorites, destinations, routes, navigation history can be synchronized between the phone and the head unit
Overall significantly lowered entry barrier for value added services
Connected services: local search, weather, fuel prices, parking
”Back to car” feature - The smartphone application always ”knows” where it has last ”seen” the car, so one can always navigate back to the vehicle
Different scenarios of map management through in-app shop, Latest Map Guarantee

Main benefits

  • Significantly enhanced user experience with an easy map-update process and phone-vehicle
    integration features.
  • Dramatically increased map-update take rate, thus increased customer satisfaction.
  • Leaving no room for user error in the map update process, thus reducing customer support-related costs

Intuitive features

  • Congestion detour

    Congestion detour

    Based on the reduced speed of the car, the congestion detour feature recognizes traffic jams on the highway — even if they are not reported by the traffic service. It immediately calculates detours and gives hints, instead of blindly sticking to the original plan.

  • Real-time route alternatives

    Real-time route alternatives

    Taking advantage of crossroads, real-time route alternatives are given if the car approaches an inner-city junction too slowly, and the driver sees that the planned route is affected by congestion. (This feature is switched off by default.)

  • Hints upon detour

    Hints upon detour

    Hints upon detour

    When a driver suddenly leaves the highway – which can be either to avoid something ahead or to stop for something in the neighborhood (fuel station, rest area, restaurant, etc.) – the software tries to find out the reason for doing so, instead of forcing the driver back on the planned route. The Hints upon detour feature provides appropriate hints in an unobtrusive way.

  • Parking around destination
