Garmin International has announced an expansion of its partnership with Honda Motors to bring its satellite navigation system into more of the manufacturer’s cars over the next four years.
Last year the navigation specialist became the provider of choice for the automaker’s Civic and CR-V models in Europe, Russia and South America. Now, the firm’s systems will find their way into the Honda Pilot, a mid-size crossover sold primarily in North America.
The Garmin system integrates with the Honda CONNECT infotainment system and features a range of intelligent functions. Preloaded maps allow the user to find their way even without mobile reception, while the millions of points of interest show motorists what is around them. Meanwhile, spoken turn-by-turn directions lead drivers to their destination without having to take their eyes off the road.
Lane guidance indicates the correct lane to take when making a turn, and PhotoReal junction views show a realistic shot of junctions and exits. There’s also real-time traffic alerts and a speed limit display to help motorists avoid distraction and speeding.
Garmin navigation is standard-fit in the new CR-V, HR-V and Civic, to join the various other infotainment features such as USB connectivity for external music players and integrated Bluetooth. They all combine for a connected driving experience, and help motorists to stay entertained and informed during every journey.
