Garmin Monterra

    Garmin® Announces Monterra™, an Android™ Powered Outdoor GPS with WiFi
    OLATHE, Kan. /June 24, 2013- Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced Monterra, Garmin's first WiFi-enabled outdoor handheld GPS that combines Garmin's powerful location and mapping capabilities and the versatility of the Android™ operating system. From now on users can easily access the Google Play Store™, download apps through an available WiFi connection right onto their outdoor optimized Garmin handheld and enjoy new ways to explore the great outdoors. Garmin will present Monterra the very first time to the international trade and media at the Outdoor exhibition in Friedrichshafen (Ger) from July 11th – July 14th.
    "Monterra provides outdoor professionals and enthusiasts with the ultimate ability to customize their GPS device to perfectly suit their personal and professional needs," says Martin Resch, Garmin's EMEA Product Manager, Outdoor. "With its brilliant four-inch, colour, multi-touch display and the ability to experience ever new apps, Monterra takes the outdoor GPS to a whole new level, and users are able to take advantage of its great features no matter how adverse the terrain may be."The Android operating system empowers users to access all their favourite outdoor-related Android apps, and even those that aren't, through the Google Play Store right on the device. They can even access professional apps like for farming or logging to improve their daily efficiency in the field. One of the most popular recreational outdoor apps in Europe PeakFinder is even preinstalled on Monterra and tells you the names and the height of mountain tops around you all over the Alps. Monterra also has a built-in FM radio and you can listen to music either with headphones or through the built-in speaker.
    Monterra deploys leading sensor technology, thanks to its high-sensitivity, dual-band GPS and GLONASS receiver, Monterra finds its location quickly and maintains signal lock even in heavy cover and deep canyons. To even further improve positioning it has a built-in 3-axis compass with accelerometer and gyro, which indicates the user's direction when standing still or not holding the device level. Its barometric altimeter has the ability to track changes in pressure to pinpoint precise altitude, and it can also plot barometric pressure over time to monitor weather conditions. It also has a built-in UV sensor so users can monitor the intensity of the sun, and reduce exposure if necessary.
    Monterra features an outdoor optimized highly durable mineral glass display. Its transflective display uses the power of the sun to provide best readability even in brightest sunlight. This way it even safes power throughout the day as the backlight LED only needs to be turned on for low light conditions. Monterra is fully ruggedized and has an IPX7 waterproof rating. To provide maximum independence during outdoor adventures it uses a dual battery system, which allows users the option of using the rechargeable Li-ion pack (included) or traditional AA batteries. It is also compatible with the same mounts as the Garmin Montana™, so users can safely take Monterra anywhere.
    No need to take a separate camera out into the field, either. Monterra has a built-in 8-megapixel autofocus digital camera that takes vivid, geo-tagged photos for easy return navigation, plus a 1080p HD video camera with LED flash. Users can easily download photos and videos to their computer for either work or sharing using Garmin Adventures. Monterra has 6 GB of internal memory built-in plus a microSD slot for even more extra storage.
    Wireless sharing is easy with Monterra. It has WiFi, ANT+™, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC capabilities, which allows users to share data, maps, waypoints, tracks, routes, and geocaches with other wireless compatible devices. Additionally, Monterra is compatible with BaseCamp™, a free software download that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks.
    Monterra is a heavyweight geocaching device, meaning it can hold millions of geocaches. Download caches from OpenCaching.com, or use a downloaded Android app, and users won't run out of room. All the paperless geocaching features, such as descriptions, hints and logs, will be there for every single cache. Cachers can also view photos, connect to chirp® enabled caches, and filter caches by size, terrain, difficulty and type.
    The new Garmin Monterra will be available third quarter 2013 at a recommended retail price of £599.99 with preloaded Rec Map Europe with Navteq® roads. With Monterra, users are able to work mobile in the field, using all the Android apps they are used to using, but with the assurance of a rugged device that is waterproof, has longer battery life, an easy to read display and a variety of mounting options. Monterra will be revealed at the Outdoor exhibition in Friedrichshafen (Ger) from July 11th to July 14th at Halle B1, booth 202.
    Monterra is the latest solution from Garmin's growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies and innovations to enhance users' outdoor experiences. Whether hiking, hunting, geocaching, golfing, or dog tracking, Garmin outdoor devices are becoming essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels.

The Magic Box: Introducing the Garmin RV 760LMT RV GPS & Trip Planner

Eight-year-old Luke shares memories from his family's summer RV adventure -- a vacation made even more fun, thanks to "The Magic Box."

Sygic: GPS Navigation 13.1.3 BETA

Hi guys !
Allow us to introduce the new Sygic GPS Navigation 13.1 BETA for Android!
We have added a new feature and we need you, our users, to help us with testing and improving things before the final release.

What’s new ?

1. Improved Traffic information service
-          redesigned route summary now contains more info and user reported traffic
-          traffic view allows you to quickly check nearby traffic situation
-          traffic bar rolls traffic info for calculated route
-          graphic redesign


2. Overall improved stability and speed of application

Here is a small FAQ to prevent any misunderstandings:

Can I use this 13.1.3 BETA application ?
New BETA app can be used by users with licensed Sygic: GPS Navigation app, or, for users with valid trial period.
Please note that the GPS Navigation license needs to be one from our e-shop at www.sygic.com for the beta to work.

What do I need to do to install this 13.1.3 BETA application ?
  1. You need to have Sygic: GPS Navigation app installed on your device from Google Play Store.
  2. sygicicon.png Download beta .apk installation file to your device.
  3. Make sure that option for installing apps from unknown sources (non-Market apps) is turned on, on your device. You can find it in Android Settings Security > Unknown sources.
  4. If you do not have any file manager app installed, you can choose one from Google Play Store.
    For example, you can use ES File Explorer File Manager or ASTRO File Manager
  5. We recommend you to make a backup (copy) whole “Sygic” folder from your SD card/internal memory to prevent data loss (maps, favorites, custom POI etc.) in case of failure.
  6. Open file manager and search for .apk file that you have just downloaded from the link above, when you find it, install it.
  7. That’s all. Now open the new Sygic app from application menu of your device and wait until all resources files are downloaded.
(Please, use WiFi connection to do this, it is faster and saves you a lot of MB from your mobile data plan).

How can I move back to stable market version after BETA test ?
Just delete the whole “Sygic” folder from SD card/internal memory and install the original  Sygic” folder that you have backed-up.  After this, open Google Play Store and look for Sygic: GPS Navigation, uninstall and install it again (it will replace BETA .apk with stable .apk from Google Play Store).
This is all you need to do before using new BETA app, now we come to the main part.

We will really appreciate if you can test these features:

1. New and better Traffic information service
 Users with Traffic subscription are able to see new Traffic Information Service redesign and improvements.
After clicking in Traffic button in upper left corner, you will be switched to Traffic mode with darker theme, so it is easier to see the traffic.
On your route, you can see traffic delay. After clicking on it, you can see average speed on route with traffic.

2. Overall improved stability and speed of application 
Just do whatever you want in Sygic app. If you will find any problem, crash or something unusual, just let us know in feedback form.

Please fill in following  web form after testing, so we can check all the problems that need to be fixed before final release.

Give us Feedback here!


Thank you very much for your time and help!

H Google αγοράζει το Waze για 1,3 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια (Αποκλειστικό του naviphone-hellas.gr)

H Google αγοράζει το Waze για 1,3 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια. To Facebook έμεινε στην μεση του δρόμου...

Οι εικασίες σχετικά με την πώληση της ισραηλινής εταιρίας υπηρεσιών πλοήγησης Waze έχουν ένα τέλος. Πριν το 2012, η Apple και το Facebook συνομιλούσαν για την εξαγορά αλλά τώρα η Google προσδιορίζεται ως αγοραστής, καθώς οι ισραηλινό περιοδικό " „Globes“ αναφέρει …με 1,3 δις $ η Google αναλαβαίνει την ισραηλινής εταιρίας υπηρεσιών πλοήγησης Waze.

Ο ανταγωνισμός στην αγορά με χάρτες και πλοήγηση είναι μεγάλη, έτσι η Google ι πλέον προσθέτει ένα κομμάτι από την πίτα της αγοράς ξανά στο ενεργητικο της. Η υπηρεσία Waze, έχει περίπου 50 εκατομμύρια χρήστες σε όλο τον κόσμο και φυσικά είναι μία από τις μεγαλύτερες αγορές της Google τον τελευταίο καιρό. Waze έχει ειδικευτεί στην ανάλυση του GPS-με βάση τα στοιχεία κυκλοφορίας που λαμβάνονται από τους χρήστες όπως: κυκλοφοριακή συμφόρηση, ελέγχους Τροχαίας , κάμερες ταχύτητας και άλλα σχετίζετε με την κυκλοφορία πληροφοριών που γίνονται σε σχεδόν πραγματικό χρόνο και είναι δωρεάν για τους χρήστες των smartphones. Το κομμάτι Αυτό ταιριάζει απόλυτα στην πολιτική του Google Maps στο οποίο μπορεί να ενσωματώσει καλύτερα την τεχνογνωσία των Ισραηλινών και πληροφοριακά οφέλη καθώς και την πλατφόρμα διαφήμισης της Waze.
Όλο και Περισσότερα Ισραηλινές πηγές αναφέρουν ότι στη εξαγορά η πληρωμή έγινε σε δολάρια και ότι οι μετοχές των μέτοχων δεν θα αλλάξουν χέρια . Ο Noam Bardin..ο σημερινός CEO θα παραμείνει στη θέση του και το Waze θα παραμείνει σε ισχύ ως εμπορικό σήμα. Το τμήμα έρευνας και ανάπτυξης, καθώς και το επιχειρηματικό κέντρο για τουλάχιστον τρία χρόνια θα παραμείνει στο Ισραήλ και Στην Αμερικη ένα γραφείο της Waze στην Καλιφόρνια υπάρχει ήδη.
Με την εξαγορά της Waze η Google δημιουργεί μια ραγδαία αναπτυσσόμενη αγορά των start-ups στο Ισραήλ και πατα καλά πόδι αφού ήδη η LabPixies και η Quicksee έχουν ενσωματωθεί στην ίδια από το 2010. Ίσως ακόμη πιο σημαντικό στοιχείο, όμως, είναι ότι το Facebook και η Apple πιαστικαν στον ύπνο …η επιμονή που είχε καταβληθεί από Waze της έδωσε ακόμα περισσότερη αξία και να θυμηθούμε ότι Η Apple είχε προσφέρει το 2012 500 εκατ. δολάρια ΗΠΑ και το Facebook δεν ηταν πρόθυμο να επενδύσει περισσότερα από ένα δισεκατομμύριο δολάρια.
Η εταιρεία Waze ιδρύθηκε το 2008, απασχολεί σήμερα 110 άτομα, έχει λάβει μέχρι στιγμής 67 εκατομμύρια δολάρια των κεφαλαίων επιχειρηματικού κινδύνου από μεγάλους φήμης οργανισμούς όπως η Microsoft, η Qualcomm και Vertex Venture Capital και KPCB. Η εφαρμογη Waze είναι διαθέσιμη για iOS και Android λειτουργ

Google and the World Brain

Google and the World Brain Trailer The story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet. In 2002 Google began to scan millions of books in an effort to create a giant global library, containing every book in existence. They had an even greater purpose - to create a higher form of intelligence, something that HG Wells had predicted in his 1937 essay "World Brain". But over half the books Google scanned were in copyright, and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop Google, which climaxed in a New York courtroom in 2011. A film about the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the Internet.

NavFusion™ - The Latest Innovation from NNG

Πέμπτη 6 Ιουνίου 2013

NNG News: NavFusion μεσα στο 2014

NNG News: NavFusion

Today NNG announced NavFusion™, its latest innovation in navigation, at Telematics Detroit 2013, the annual conference and exhibition. NavFusion is the newest feature set of iGO Navigation, developed by the global navigation software provider for its automotive OEM and aftermarket partners. It takes the onboard navigation experience to a new level by merging the advantages of the reliable and deeply integrated in-vehicle navigation and the smartphone’s personal nature, Internet connection, and flexibility.

NavFusion Essentials:
The car’s NavFusion-supported infotainment system is fully functional as the vehicle leaves the production line. By downloading the free NavFusion application from iTunes App Store or Google Play, and then linking the smartphone to the head-unit, all navigation-related content is synchronized in the background. The process makes map and content updates in the head-unit simple and effort free. Contacts, favorites, navigation history, planned routes, and maps are synced between smartphone and head-unit.
The connection between the smartphone and the infotainment system is achieved through future proof, globally standardized protocols such as WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB cable, thus enabling live and connected services such as online local search, weather, traffic and fuel prices – all available through the main interface of the vehicle.
“As the smartphone is automatically updated via the well known ecosystems of the iTunes Store or Google Play, updating the maps in the car becomes a background operation when the phone connects to the car, and that can actually be accomplished without user interaction,” said Jim Nardulli, NNG’s Senior VP, Automotive OEM Sales. “The NavFusion feature set addresses completely the number 1 complaint of consumers regarding in-car navigation systems.”
Why NavFusion?
“We just solved the biggest headache of car makers: the ultimate solution for keeping the navigation maps and content of a multimedia unit up-to-date. With NavFusion, we’re not only enhancing the driving experience with map updates and the integration of personal smartphone content, but we’re also increasing customer satisfaction and reducing customer-support related costs,” said Péter Balogh, CEO of NNG.
“We strongly believe that the future of automotive infotainment is all about smartphone connectivity, content updates and synchronization. NavFusion offers all this, integrated into the reliable, globally localized iGO Navigation software, while maintaining the automotive quality of the car systems. Using the NavFusion feature set enables the use of a fully approved and certified navigation system with the user experience of a smartphone,” added Balogh.
NavFusion to Market:
NNG already has several OEM partners lined up to deliver NavFusion into their future cars around the globe. The individual product solutions are currently being customized for the partners’ projects. The first iGO Navigation software with the NavFusion feature set is expected to launch in Q1 2014.

Navigation fail ;)

Navigation fail
What’s wrong with this picture?
Take a close look at that screenshot above. Do you see the error?
Yesterday, my wife was driving us home from our trip to Michigan when I heard her say, “which way do I go?” I looked up and saw the screen above. What’s going on is contradictory directions. The pane on the left and the top bar show the correct maneuver, bearing right to I-71 South. The Junction View image on the right however, indicates that we should go left to I-71 North. I’ve never seen this type of error before.
We were using the new Garmin nuvi 2497LMT, which otherwise performed pretty well on a trip of nearly 2,000 miles.
I’m assuming this is a database error, where junction images were miscategorized in some way. Have you ever seen anything like this? What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever encountered on your GPS?
