New range of Garmin Nuvi portable navigation devices powered with NAVTEQ digital map.
NAVTEQ has announced that Garmin will utilize the NAVTEQ map of India in its entire, new range of portable navigation devices.
The three, new portable navigation devices include Nuvi 1360, Nuvi 215 and Nuvi 715 and more new models are upcoming. Beyond the digital map, NAVTEQ is providing advanced content for the entire new range of Garmin devices to help driver orientation allowing for a more stress-free navigation experience. The Nuvi 1360, for example, comes with additional NAVTEQ Visual Content such as Junction View Images that help drivers navigate confusing situations and avoid difficult last minute maneuvers. This advanced content helps guide drivers, saving them time, fuel and ultimately frustration.
In addition, Nuvi 1360 device is also incorporated with Eco-route, a feature that allows drivers to track fuel usage and more, through Eco-route’s Fuel Report and Mileage Report. In turn, drivers can focus on their fuel conservation and find fuel-saving tips along the way.
“As the leading global brand in GPS navigation products, we aim to provide first class navigation experiences to our drivers. We selected NAVTEQ data based on its excellent quality and coverage in India. We are constantly looking to offer our customers access to the most up to date map data and believe that the incorporation of NAVTEQ map data in Garmin devices will offer consumers in India an unrivaled navigation experience,” said Tony An, director of sales & marketing, Garmin Corporation.
“NAVTEQ and Garmin have had a strong relationship globally, based on the common goal of bringing the best navigation experience to consumers. With this particular collaboration, we wanted to deliver content that would help guide drivers through the unique demands of India driving. Naturally, we are looking to drive the adoption of digital navigation in India and we believe drivers who use these Garmin devices will quickly appreciate the benefits,” said Rajat Tandon, director, sales - India, NAVTEQ.
