5 new technologies for the connected car
If you've ever been frustrated trying to enter an address into a navigation system, you'll be thrilled with what the people at TeleNav are doing. The company, which provides navigation to numerous automakers for their built-in systems, is on a mission to make navigation easier. It has added a function that uses a single search box versus the traditional multistep method of searching for a destination and has added a "recent destinations" function on the navigation home screen.
It's also currently working with automakers to integrate its Scout app to their cars' built-in navigation systems, which means you'll be able to enter a destination from your smartphone before you leave the house and have it automatically transfer to the in-car system once you begin your journey.
