Much More than Maps
Today’s in-dash GPS-based navigation systems are robust information systems that help drivers get to their destinations. More than just digital maps, the navigation systems offered at JML Audio encompass visual and spoken directions as well as thousands of Points of Interest (POIs) such as hotels, gas stations, restaurants and other common destinations on your specific route. These systems can also have real-time traffic integration for route selection or avoiding time-delaying traffic incidents.
An integrated, in-dash GPS navigation system is far safer and more intuitive than a hand-held navigation system, whether it is a portable GPS or maps on a smartphone. By integrating it into the vehicle, the screen will be much larger and easier to read than a handheld, plus the spoken commands are heard over the vehicle’s audio system instead of through the handheld’s small, difficult to hear built-in speaker.
JML Audio clients have many choices to add in-dash GPS navigation to their vehicle, whether you have an aftermarket source unit or the factory-installed radio.
Aftermarket Head Units with GPS Navigation
Many of the aftermarket source units offered at JML Audio offers integrated GPS navigation. These all have large, easy-to-view screens with intuitive touch-screen controls. We install them so that you can use the navigation while accessing another source (such as the radio or other music) and the source will mute whenever spoken driving commands are given. This offers a complete eyes-on-the-road and hands-on-the-wheel safety approach to driving which is particularly important when a new or unknown destination is chosen. We have several examples on display in our Experience Center and are happy to demonstrate the possibilities if you’ve been considering an in-dash head unit that includes GPS navigation.
Add GPS Navigation to Factory Installed Radios
At JML Audio we can add GPS navigation to just about any existing factory-installed car stereo that has an Color LCD screen in the dashboard, instrument cluster or rear view mirror. If your vehicle came with the option of a navigation system, but it was not installed or included in the options package, we have solutions that operate just as a factory-installed navigation option would and in many cases Better! In many cases, our solutions have more current maps than the factory-installed systems and are easily updated with USB or SD Card slots. Perhaps one of the coolest things we can offer is to make many vehicles with a non-touch LCD screen into a touch-screen so that the addition of GPS navigation is easier to control.
