Suzuki Chooses Garmin for Infotainment Systems

While some automakers have tried their hand at developing their own infotainment systems with mixed results, Suzuki has turned to the experts at Garmin for the in-car navigation and entertainment system featured in the automaker’s 2013 lineup. Revealed at the 2012 New York International Auto Show, Garmin’s system features a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen that seamlessly integrates the navigation system, media controls, Bluetooth-connected phones and a backup camera, taking functionality to an entirely new level.

Suzuki drivers will also be able to use Pandora internet radio, as well as other popular applications, by connecting their smartphone to the Garmin system in their car. Once paired, hands-free phone calls and voice controls allow drivers to keep their eyes on the road while staying connected with the world.

Of course the real power of Garmin is the outstanding navigation system, which informs drivers of posted speed limits as well as their own speed so they don’t get caught unaware. The Garmin system also includes millions of points of interest that make exploring a new place fun and easy. Commuters will especially appreciate the optional traffic reports via Garmin’s Traffic Message Channel, which can show you trouble spots so you can skip the congestion. And since the system can track your speed through the vehicle itself, you’ll still be able to access directions even when signals are unavailable, like in Boston’s tunnels. Now that’s cool.

We can’t wait for the new Garmin-equipped Suzuki vehicles to reach our Massachusetts Suzuki dealership, but if you can’t wait to get your hands on a great vehicle stop by and we’ll serve as your GPS through the car-buying process.
