Volvo unveils ‘smart sat nav solution’

Swedish motor manufacturer Volvo has designed a new, smarter way to store a satellite navigation device (sat nav).

Drivers traditionally place their portable systems in casing stuck the the windscreen by suction cups, leaving wires hanging down in an untidy fashion.

However, the automaker has made a mounting bracket compatible with Garmin’s latest sat nav system, the nuvi 760.

Volvo added that the kit has passed all of its ergonomic, sight and crash tests.

“The unit is also compatible with a number of Bluetooth phones, doubles up as an MP3 player and comes preloaded with detailed two and three dimensional maps covering the UK, Ireland and EU,” the company stated.

A satellite navigation system uses satellites from space to convey a motorist’s position and guide him or her to their destination accordingly.

Downloadable content can be added, including famous voices to direct the motorist.
