2012 Terrain Will Include Multi-Purpose Navigation System
The new 2012 Terrain will include a multipurpose navigation system that will allow users to use their phones, radio, iPod, OnStar, and navigation all from the same screen.
The new 2012 Terrain is set to include a great new navigation system, complete with a range of amazing functions. Most navigation systems only provide the driver with their necessary directions, but the Terrain nav system will include the standard maps and directions as well as music, hands-free talking, and three months of SiriusXM radioís NavTraffic and local forecast. The new navigation system sells for a reasonable price, one thatís less expensive than many of its competitors.
The navigation part of the navigation system will include a secure digital card-based map database which will be updateable. It will also include several different ways of viewing the maps and several different ways to input your destination. The radio system will also include multiple functions. It will be equipped with AM/FM radio, CD capability, Sirius Satellite Radio, USB ports for iPod and other MP3 player inputs, and hands-free phone control with OnStar voice commands. The LCD display will even project the album art for a current song from an iPod if one is connected.
The Color Touch Navigation System has a high-tech look to it with a sleek design, yet still provides the practical functionality that makes this type of system so great. The design will appeal to users who are used to smartphones and tablet PCs, since the nav system will include a seven inch color touch screen with the familiar app icons.
There is also an interesting photo function provided in the navigation system. This function can only be accessed however when the car is in park. There will be an SD card reader included in the nav system that will allow passengers to view pictures on the display from their camera or smartphone by accessing the photo function.
Citing GM's research, Tim Nixon, executive director, Global Electrical Systems, Infotainment and Electrification had this to say: ďTodayís car buyers donít want to settle for mass-market radio, and they donít have to. They expect to have access to personalized media wherever they are and the introduction of the Color Touch Radio and Navigation System makes media personalization easier than ever.ĒThis new navigation system will be an excellent step in the right direction for the future of vehicle technology. Our vehicles are becoming more and more sophisticated and stylish with each passing year! Hopefully new navigation systems like the 2012 Terrain that simplify the technology in our vehicles will start to become the new standard of American vehicles!
