Advent Adds Plug-and-Play Navigation Systems

VOXX Electronics Corp. (VEC) has announced the expansion of the Advent Integrated Navigation Applications Guide to now include select 2016 Ford vehicles. 

The plug-and-play aftermarket solution for Ford vehicles enables dealers to easily add navigation capabilities to existing screens with Ford SYNC 3 user interface while still retaining all factory features with no modifications, according to VEC. Compatible vehicles include 2016 Ford C-Max, Edge, Escape, Expedition, F-150, Fiesta, Focus, Mustang and Transit.

“We remain committed to the expeditor/car dealer market and are focused on providing these channels with products that can increase their profitability while responding to the latest consumer trends in electronics,” said Aron Demers, senior vice president for VEC. “This new interface has been designed to integrate with a vehicles existing infotainment screen and offers the consumer the ability to add a high-resolution system that is updateable and upgradeable via a remote USB connection. We are excited to offer an aftermarket solution that will simplify the installation process and provide consumers with a state of the art user interface.”

The Advent Integrated Navigation systems works with Ford SYNC 3 and features navigation accessed by on-screen icons and a matching user interface. iGo Next Generation with U.S. and Canada mapping features its “latest map guarantee,” ensuring the consumer starts out with the most current maps available and gives them the ability to upgrade to new maps via USB cable, similar to what would be offered in a factory system, according to VEC.

iGo (NNG) Certified Navigation Hardware ensures the best user experience and the newest interface offers “Next Gen” 3D Mapping, over 11 million POI, turn-by-turn voice guided directions, and ECO Green Navigation which helps to save fuel, according to VEC.

The system also includes added/displayed OBD information such as fuel economy, door open/close, engine oil temp, and other available data depending on the vehicle it is installed in.  The system offers an HDMI input which allows users to connect and mirror Smartphone content on the head unit when parked, while also offering charging capabilities. All systems will also integrate with OE camera if installed.
