NNG provides city audio guides embedded in navigation
Issue Date: 2016-02-24

NNG – a supplier of automotive navigation software, content, and services – has teamed up with PocketGuide: the developer of the world's leading audio city guide application. With this partnership, NNG now offers the feature as part of its line-fit navigation portfolio. NNG becomes one of the first automotive infotainment software companies to provide such audio guide services to OEMs and TIER 1 customers.

PocketGuide currently offers audio guided tours for more than 150 cities in Europe and the United States. These guided tours have been synced with NNG's navigation software, which provides tourist information on planned routes while driving. This collaboration also allows drivers to access many other features, such as:

• Recommended routes to nearby tourist sites

• An independent iGO Navigation Audio Guide Experience on the screen of the rear seat entertainment system for back seat passengers

• Unique rear seat educational content geared specifically to children

• Tour-related sales offers directly in the car's head unit, with the possibility of making purchases by scanning a QR code

NNG is committed to offering the latest technology to drivers. This move continues NNG's tradition of innovation, whether it's developing groundbreaking navigation technology within the company or collaborating with the world's most talented startups outside of the company.
