Hertz Australia upgrades Satellite Navigation System

Travel News Asia 1 August 2005

Hertz is expanding and upgrading the satellite navigation system in its core rental fleet in Australia.

The company is to introduce the new Navman iCN635 premium in-car navigation system, initially for installation in 200 Ford Falcon sedans in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The new Navman system which we are introducing is the very latest in navigation technology, said Wayne Burgoyne, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hertz Australia. It will upgrade significantly the content and quality of our navigation information, and make this product even easier for our customers to use.

Navman uses innovative street mapping software with the latest GPS technology to deliver a safe, easy-to-use and dependable guidance system. Customers just type their destination details into the navigation unit, and the Navman responds with voice and visual instructions for a stress-free journey. 

In addition to voice guidance, the new system uses three search engines UBD, and Sensis to deliver the most up-to-date information on a highly-detailed 3D colour map, presented as a dynamic street-level image.

This enables users to view not just the point they are at on a particular thoroughfare, but a projected image of the area around them, with their selected route highlighted.

The Navman system also features back on track re-routing, which directs drivers back on course if they take a wrong turn.

In addition the Navman system offers a detailed points of interest database which can be customised by users, and will be programmed to feature all Hertz rental locations in Australia.
