Garmin will unveil the latest upgrades to its world-renowned navigation software, enhancements to its infotainment platforms, a demo exhibiting augmented reality technology, and their current work on integrated cameras and wearable solutions at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity of showcasing all the hard work our team has put together for current and future projects at this year’s CES,” said Matt Munn, Garmin automotive OEM managing director. “Whether it’s the inclusion of Garmin wearables with unique OEM vehicle integration, or developments with connected vehicle navigation and augmented reality, this year’s show will help us communicate the company’s relentless commitment to infotainment enhancements and innovation on a global scale.”
Garmin is moving forward with its advancements in navigation technology with a slew of new features set to launch as a global OEM solution beginning in 2020.
Among the innovations will be a hybrid navigation system that powers connected vehicles with real-time, cloud-based destination search and routing. In situations where connectivity is not available, the navigation solution utilizes on-board maps and routing to provide an uncompromised navigation experience. The platform will also include the company’s RouteCast™ Weather system for mile-by-mile route-specific forecasts, says a press release.
Garmin is also bringing back its signature scalable infotainment platform with a digital instrument cluster to CES and adds integration with wearable products—designed by Garmin—for driver monitoring and vehicle telematics.
Garmin, in collaboration with Tapkey, will present a new Bluetooth based digital key solution using Garmin wearables to unlock car doors. Tapkey gives app developers, service providers, and lock manufacturers the ability to add digital key access to their products.
During CES, Garmin will specifically showcase how its wearables can also monitor driver stress and display the driver’s fitness information using the Garmin vívoactive® 3 GPS smartwatch.
