Opel has released details on the new Corsa, which includes a new infotainment system. Called “Touch & Connect,” this system features a five-inch color touch screen, full navigation coverage for 28 countries, Bluetooth, iPod, USB connections and seven, 4×20 watt loudspeakers.
It is universally connectible, simple to use and has every convenience for the 21st century built in, at a very competitive price.
The five-inch touch screen display features both 2-D and 3-D (bird view) maps and SD navigation card. Another new feature is an option to choose the most ecological route, helping to save fuel and the environment. Points of interest can be downloaded by the user.
It also has an intelligent commuter function that uses TMC information to propose alternative routes in case of traffic problems, even when navigation is not active.
This function is of special interest to commuters who know their routes but want to be informed automatically of traffic jams on their way. Bluetooth connectivity allows for safe, hands-free telephoning – even displaying address books on the screen – and is iPhone compatible.
It also allows audio streaming and displays music titles on screen. iPODs have full control and browsing capability with no special cables needed. USB sticks can also be used on the new system.
