#CES – Don’t Get Lost In Vegas
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
Navigon has launched Audi Las Vegas Navigator, a free navigation app for Consumer Electronics Show 2011.
The app, based on NAVIGON’s award winning MobileNavigator, contains the map material for the entire state of Nevada, and is available in the App Store for a limited time. It aims to provide the thousands of visitors traveling to CES this year from around the world, with multi-language precise turn-by-turn directions, lane guidance and helps finding hotels, restaurants, Vegas hot spots, airports and more.
Audi Las Vegas Navigator transforms the iPhone into an inclusive navigation device that includes pre-loaded NAVTEQ maps, providing full function navigation capabilities when a cell signal is not available.
“CES visitors have tight schedules and need to get around the event quickly,” says Gerhard Mayr, vice-president worldwide mobile phones and new markets. “AUDI AG and NAVIGON come together to guide them around Las Vegas stress free and in style with a premium navigation app.”
CES attendees can travel from the air to ground and around the conference without worrying about getting lost. Connected services provide real-time information, such as Google Local Search, Weather Live and location sharing with in-app connections to Facebook and Twitter. Even when continuing by foot, a pedestrian mode provides precise walking directions.
Features include Reality View Pro, displaying photo-realistic 3D views of actual road, highway/interstate, signs and exits, and lane guide markers for easy driving decisions. Navigon MyRoutes analyzes driving habits, patterns, location, time/day and provides up to three routes clearly displayed in-map with ETA, distance and driving times for each.
