OnStar announced today the introduction of two brand new navigational services for complementing and enhance its already existing Turn-by-Turn service, which is the most widely navigation system available on the market. These features are solidifying GM`s leadership in the navigation with more autos on the road with some embedded navigation systems plus more options than other automaker.
"Through OnStar and onboard navigation systems, GM is transforming the category with the broadest range of options to suit customer preferences," said Chet Huber – the OnStar President. "With 3.1 million model year 2008 vehicles equipped with some form of factory-installed navigation, GM is delivering on our commitment to redefine the availability and functionality of navigation systems in the United States and Canada".
"At MapQuest we strive to provide our users with easy-to-use features that will save them time and ensure that they find their destination," said Christian Dwyer, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of MapQuest. "OnStar eNav is a great addition to our suite of ’Send To’ capabilities offering users the convenience of researching and planning online and sending results to a user’s preferred device or system".
"From the pilot we learned that many of our subscribers like to pre-plan their trips, especially when visiting new areas," affirmed Huber. "They appreciated the simplicity of eNav and used it to plan thousands of routes".
"GM and OnStar are demonstrating their commitment to providing their drivers with the best in technology, with this impressive expansion of XM NavTraffic across 22 vehicles in the 2009 model year," said Steve Cook, the executive vice president, automotive, XM Satellite Radio. "XM NavTraffic provides the most comprehensive information and coast-to-coast updates every minute, ensuring that GM drivers will always have the latest and most detailed information at his or her fingertips".
"Our varied connected navigation options mean something for everyone whether you drive a Cadillac CTS or a Chevrolet Cobalt," Huber affirmed. "As the leader in navigation our continual goal is to provide GM drivers with useful and convenient services that make the driving experience simpler, safer and more secure".
