Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., today released a new all-in-one audio visual navigation system created exclusively for Nissan vehicles which enables music fans to connect their iPod* to the system with a designated connector cable for a seamless iPod experience on the road.
“We are very excited to be collaborating with Apple on this project,” said Carlos Tavares, Nissan executive vice president and head of planning and design in the press release. “The new HC705-A navigation system gives customers the best possible in-car control of iPod through the system’s innovative 7-inch wide touch-panel display. It also allows customers to enjoy their iPod in the car without any concern about battery life.”
The iPod remains automatically charged when hooked up to the navigation system with the connector cable, a convenient feature for long trips. In addition to iPod connectivity, the new high-spec hard disk drive navigation system offers numerous other features, including Nissan’s CARWINGS telematics service, CD/MD/DVD playback and music recording capability.
The navigation system, a dealer-installed option, retails for 315,000 yen. The system is available at all domestic dealers starting from today and can be fitted on 11 Nissan models, including the Serena minivan, the Tiida compact car, the X-TRAIL SUV, and the Moco minicar. The connector cable, which is sold separately, retails for 20,865 yen. The cable supports all iPod models with dock connector.
