Garmin has announced that Daimler AG has selected it 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.
‚”Being selected by Daimler as their global tier-one navigation solution partner is a testament to Garmin’s growing capability and exceptional product quality in the auto OEM space,‚” said Matt Munn, Garmin managing director automotive OEM. ‚”We are honoured by Daimler’s confidence in Garmin and we look forward to working with them to deliver an exceptional navigation experience for the world’s most discerning drivers.‚”
Building upon Garmin’s easy-to-use interface, advanced navigation functionality will be seamlessly integrated into the Mercedes-Benz infotainment systems to provide an efficient and intuitive experience. 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.
Garmin’s automotive OEM group utilises the company’s long-standing experience in user interface and hardware design from its automotive, avionics and marine segments to develop innovative in-car navigation, telematics and infotainment systems. Garmin’s broad range of in-vehicle electronics for the automotive industry includes full infotainment and telematics systems, navigation software, location-based services, and integrated portable navigation systems.
