Harman to supply Mercedes Benz with ‘hybrid’ navigation system

Carmakers are working closely with electronic component suppliers to develop a new generation of low cost navigation and infotainment systems designed for both vehicle and personal use. Renault recently launched such a system in its facelifted Clio hatch called the Carminat TomTom GPS and now Harman International has confirmed plans to supply a similar system for use in up to eight new Mercedes Benz vehicles starting from mid-2010. Harman describes its new system as a "hybrid mid-level navigation device" that combines the benefits of a standard portable GPS navigator with the complete functionality of a fully integrated in-dash infotainment system.
