Navigon introduces pedestrian navigation in portrait mode

The pedestrian navigation system will be used to provide improved orientation in all the new NAVIGON IFA models, from the entry-level NAVIGON 1400 | 1410 devices through to the premium NAVIGON 8410 | 8450 Live models.

When the car is parked, the device automatically saves its position and immediately launches the pedestrian navigation system with directions to the final destination. On the way home, all the user needs to do is select the saved destination “My Vehicle” to be guided back to your car.

The NAVIGON 2400 | 2410 models are specially designed to meet pedestrians’ needs, making them the first choice for all those who are often also on the go with their navigation device outside the car – exploring cities whilst on holiday, for example.

They not only have the E-Compass, users can also navigate their way through the city centre for hours with the 2400 series, without needing to charge the battery.

This is due to a sophisticated and intelligent energy-saving package, which includes a position sensor. The sensor recognises when the position of the device changes and ensures that significantly less energy is used whilst in pedestrian mode. As soon as the device is placed in a pocket or is laid flat, the 3.5-inch display switches off. Processor power is also reduced considerably when in pedestrian mode and non-essential functions are deactivated, meaning that electricity consumption is around 50 percent lower – increasing operating life and allowing for long city trips.
