Telenav, a provider of connected-car and location-based services, announced it is supplying the connected-navigation software and services for the infotainment system of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV. The collaboration is part of Telenav’s ongoing strategic relationship with GM as the navigation software provider. The 2021 Escalade was unveiled at a private media event in Los Angeles on February 4th.
The latest edition of the full-size luxury SUV includes a fully redesigned infotainment system featuring a 38-inch curved OLED display with twice the pixel density of a 4K TV. Telenav’s navigation software is designed to take full advantage of the high-resolution displays, a heads-up display and two rear-seat screens to provide up-to-date navigation, traffic and Yelp point-of-interest content that’s easily accessible by driver and passengers. Rear seat passengers can follow along on the route, search for destinations and share them with the driver making it convenient for everyone in the SUV to be part of the journey.
