BusinessWire: Garmin announced yesterday that its automotive OEM division will provide in-dash navigation for the new 2011 model year Chrysler Grand Cherokee.
The program marks Garmin’s first major automotive navigation system to be installed at the factory.
The system combines Garmin’s best-selling, affordable, and intuitive user interface into Chrysler’s Uconnect radio that merges technology and content into one 6.5” touchscreen display.
“Garmin is uniquely positioned to quickly bring the latest and greatest navigation technology to an in-dash environment – priced at a level that mainstream drivers can afford,” said Cliff Pemble, Garmin’s president and chief operating officer.
“Being a navigation provider for Chrysler is a significant and long sought-after achievement for our company. We look forward to collaborating with them on this exciting project.”
