Bosch’s smart navigation systems meet all adjustability requirements for different vehicle classes, market needs, and customer demands. The operating system and the input and display technology are modular and can be individually tailored to the customer’s requirements – including complete integration of mobile communication and entertainment systems.
Standard navigation systems already offer touchscreen or turn switches, as well as various input options such as home address, favorites, last 50 destinations, and keyword search. They also feature easy-to-read bird’s-eye-view (2.5D) maps with depth perception and precise, easy-to-understand announcements.
Bosch navigation systems for mid-sized vehicles include internal flash memory for rapid access to navigation data, continuously variable zoom, and smooth image scrolling. Dynamic route guidance takes current traffic conditions into account. The integrated Merian travel guide provides detailed information and pictures for places of interest.
For premium class vehicles, Bosch navigation enables drivers to control all entertainment, navigation, communication, and operational functions using a single device. This offers safe and convenient operation via voice input or touchscreen, precise navigation with attractive 3D maps. The system architecture enables new functions to be integrated quickly and simply, bridging the gap between the fast-moving cycles of the world of apps with longer vehicle lifetimes.
Bosch’s innovative 3D artMap is the world’s first graphical 3D map to be based on expressive visualization technologies, a form of display that highlights important details such as landmarks using three-dimensional objects while the surroundings are displayed in a linear manner.
