Yenra : GPS : Dashboard Navigation : Touch screen GPS system gives on-dash route guidance with map-based turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts

Dashboard Navigation

Mopar has teamed up with Garmin to offer an affordable GPS navigation system for Chrysler vehicles. As a dealer-installed option, the Mopar Navigation system provides the ultimate in convenience: an affordable GPS navigation unit with route direction guidance located right on the vehicle's dashboard.

This system provides premium automotive navigation capabilities, including an easy to use touch screen interface and high-resolution color TFT display, full map-based navigation, turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts. This system includes over five million points-of-interest to help the driver locate points of interest.

There are also eight ways to map a destination and vehicle directions can be obtained in three languages.

The Navus Navigation System features automatic route calculations, detour functions and an information page that logs helpful trip statistics. The car navigation system also features a built-in GPS antenna and speaker, and provides dead reckoning capability (which continues to route the driver if GPS signals are temporarily lost). In addition, a built-in national base map provides nationwide highway routes, and detailed street level mapping is provided through regional compact flash map data cards.

The system is engineered to work with each vehicle's bus interface, allowing it to seamlessly interact with other systems -- yet it installs in less than thirty minutes.
