Garmin Gets Mercedes OE Account
Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced that Daimler AG has selected him as global navigation provider for future Mercedes-Benz models. Garmin’s navigation will be fully integrated into Mercedes-Benz infotainment systems over the next four years.
In addition to displaying navigation and maps on the in-dash display, users will have access to important driver information, such as next turn, at a glance on a second display, positioned behind the steering wheel. The Mercedes-Benz infotainment systems also allow users to control navigation functions through the system’s rotary controller or via voice command functionality.
Furthermore, Garmin’s next-generation navigation software will provide critical positioning information for Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) functionalities of the vehicle to assist drivers in challenging situations.
