Nokia Vehicle App To Give Drivers Maps, Navigation and Traffic Updates
Car apps such as Nokia’s are turning navigation systems into mobile guidebooks with maps, driving directions, traffic updates and information about local attractions. This is the latest challenge to print guidebooks, although they still have their place.
Excerpt from Daily Tech
Nokia announced the new platform Here Auto, describing it as an application that can be embedded to a vehicle’s navigation system. It also has a cloud service and a mobile app.
Those who have the Here Auto software in their in-car navigation system can take advantage of maps (2D, 3D or street-level) and voice navigation — all without the need for a data connection. But with Web access, drivers can get real-time weather and traffic updates.
The mobile app ties into the service, allowing drivers to find their car and plan trips ahead of time.
