Nokia Launches Cloud Powered App Enabled In Dash Navigation System

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Mobile Tech Friday, August 30, 2013

Nokia has announced HERE Auto, an embedded in-dash navigation system and the HERE Auto Companion app powered by the Cloud.

The system will provide the standard expectations of a embedded system including offers voice guided turn-by-turn navigation, places search and collections, different map views, 3D landmarks, speed limit and speed camera warnings and even traffic estimation based on historic data.

What makes it special (and what Nokia is betting on) is HERE Auto’s location cloud engine that provides the backbone for the system that provides always-on access to dynamic services. Users will be able to access the same apps as they can with their other mobile devices, allowing seamless integration into their daily routines. 

Nokia is offering an SDK and OS-independent REST APIs so auto manufacturers can offer integrated in-car experiences, extending HERE Auto with features such as music and social networking.
