NNG and ANS launch new-generation personal navigation device in india

NNG and Ayana Navigation Solutions (ANS) have introduced a new Personal Navigation Device (PND) especially designed for Indian roads. The high-quality and powerful ANS Navigator


A-501 device, a 5-inch model, runs on the renowned iGO primo software by NNG, a global leader in the GPS navigation industry. The new PND is pre-loaded with the latest India maps and a total of over 7 million Points of Interest (POIs). To guarantee continued reliable guidance, the unit comes with a 1-year map update guarantee from NNG’s update portal


Fitted with the Integrated Quick Search (IQS) feature, iGO primo enables every driver to begin trips with no delay. IQS offers a search mechanism that allows the driver to program his destination in just a few seconds: by entering no more than the first 3 letters of his destination, the software starts searching simultaneously across all available databases such as POIs, Favorites, Point Addressing and more.

While driving, the Intuitive Navigation feature in iGO primo merges all available resources such as map and POI data, registered driving speed, and the ability of fast recalculation in a single superior navigation experience.  It interprets the user’s behavior and offers fast solutions: in response to reduced driving speed, the software calculates detours, assuming that the driver has run into sudden traffic. When leaving the highway unexpectedly, the system doesn’t just blindly guide the driver back to his original route, but, offers petrol stations or restaurants as an alternative.


Other key features of the ANS Navigator A-501 include:


    Point Addressing – for more exact destination-finding, addresses are stored as individual points on the map

    Natural Guidance – voice guidance in the common way humans instruct each other, making reference to shops, monuments, bridges and more

    Enhanced Junction View – realistic and high-quality images of junctions that simplify turning maneuvers

    Live Traffic – online traffic messages that warn the driver of congested road sections

    Historical Speed – considering past traffic data when calculating the best route based on the day of the week and the time of day


Commenting on the scope of navigation devices in India, Peter Bolesza, Vice President of EEU and Emerging Markets at NNG, said “India has a diverse demography and with increased urbanization, navigation solutions have become the need of the hour. We are convinced that iGO primo – easy and quick to use, and optimized for the Indian road system – makes driving an enjoyable and stress-free activity.”


Amit Sharma, Director at ANS India, said “Our aim has always been to offer innovative navigation solutions that enhance the driving experience. We’re positive that the new ANS Navigator device with iGO primo brings real value to every car.”


The new PND will be available in car dealerships, retail channels & aftermarket accessory stores from October, 2013.
