Honda Goldwing 2006 models to get integrated GPS

Posted on Friday, September 30 2005 @ 00:07:52 CEST by

Integrated GPS systems for cars is nothing new and now motorcycles will start featuring it too. Three out of the five new Honda Gold Wing 2006 motorcycles will feature an integrated GPS system from Garmin.

Gary Kelley, Garmin's vice president of marketing, says this marks the first time that Garmin has provided a vehicle manufacturer with a factory installed navigation system. He further adds the Gold Wing is Honda's premier touring bike and navigating the highways and byways should now be a lot easier with Garmin on board.

The feature will be called Honda Satellite Linked Navigation System and is the first fully integrated navigation system for motorcycles. The GPS system has a large 7-inch display and should give clear turn-by-turn voice prompted directions through the motorcycle's audio and intercom system.

Garmin says the system features large, easy-to-use buttons and rugged, solid-state memory for map storage.

In the U.S. Honda's Satellite Linked Navigation System will provide complete North American mapping with nearly six million points of interest, including places like tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants and Honda Motorcycle dealers and service centers. All this information is stored on the 2GB Compact Flash memory card.
