1. What are the advantages of Vauxhall's in-dash navigation system?
The Vauxhall navigation system is designed to meet safety regulations and automotive specifications. The unit links into the vehicle electronics – such as the speed sensor and gyro sensor – to provide dead reckoning when the GPS signal is lost thus keeping you on track. The screen size and quality is optimized for viewing and is also ergonomically positioned on the dashboard to ensure minimal driver distraction. Combined with all other multimedia functions, in-dash navigation enables a more comfortable driving experience.
2. What are the benefits of navigation?
Studies have shown that vehicles with navigation systems use 12% less fuel than those without, saving you €425 annually. By taking more efficient routes, drivers with up-to-date navigation systems reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by an average of 21%*
