Garmin Navigation System for Chrysler Vehicles

Satellite navigation company Garmin announced Saturday the next generation of its navigation system built into Chrysler vehicles. The new Garmin solution is part of the Chrysler Uconnect 8.4N infotainment system and includes several new features and enhancements.

It is available for 2013 model year Chrysler 300, Dodge Journey, Charger and Dart vehicles (offered standard on some models and optional on others).

New features include 3D buildings and terrain views, improved traffic and routing functionalities, a refined user interface with enhanced colors and themes that are consistent with each vehicle brand and junction views that now cover more than 60,000 intersections across the U.S., among other enhancements.

“We’re thrilled to introduce new features to provide drivers even better orientation and road guidance with stunning 3D views and enhanced routing technology,” said Matt Munn, Garmin’s managing director automotive OEM.

Navigation for Uconnect brings the ease of use of Garmin into an original equipment, in-dash radio. The navigator includes highly detailed maps of the United States, Canada, and Mexico with more than eight million points of interest, as well as many other features found in the newest Garmin devices.

This includes spoken turn-by-turn directions, one-shot address entry via voice command, lane assistance, junction views, speed limit and current speed, a trip computer and mileage log as well as customized vehicle icons that looks like a Chrysler or Dodge vehicle.

In addition to displaying the navigation interface and maps on the in-dash screen, the system also makes use of a second display, positioned behind the steering wheel, to easily let the driver see important information, such as next turn, at a glance.

Garmin’s automotive OEM group provides a broad range of in-vehicle electronics for the automotive industry, including infotainment and telematics systems, navigation software, location-based services, and integrated portable navigation systems.

Garmin has dedicated automotive OEM offices in the United States, Germany, China and Japan.
