An Audio-Visual Dream From Hyundai

Hyundai Santa Fe 2.7 V6

 

If you can’t tell your Basingstoke from your Bishop’s Stortford, or your Wembley from your Westminster, Hyundai can help you find your way home with a full range of satellite navigation equipment now available across its entire range.

The satellite navigation equipment is produced by VDO Dayton, an acknowledged leader in the field, with at least two systems available for each model in the range (apart from the Amica, where one system is available).

Renee Ayache, Accessories Product Manager, said: "Hyundai cars are already some of the best equipped on the road, but sometimes you need a little extra help finding your way around. We are delighted to offer this great value equipment which will make the experience of living with a Hyundai even better."

The VDO Dayton systems take a number of factors into account; one-way streets, and confusing motorway systems, and calculates a journey designed to be as smooth and straightforward as possible.

All the driver has to do is choose his destination address, key it in, and the system will calculate the route – telling you the exact distance and how long the journey will take.

The system helps the driver negotiate each junction, and if a wrong turn is taken, makes a quick recalculation to help you get back on track. Thanks to a series of global positioning satellites, the car location is constantly updated.

It can even highlight petrol stations, recommend restaurants and more than 65,000 places of interest. If that wasn’t enough, the UK disc also includes routes into main European cities.

As well as satellite navigation, Hyundai is also offering an advanced in-car portable DVD system which can be completely removed from the vehicle when it is unattended and used in the home.

The hi-tech DVD package is made by Stylex, and offers passengers the chance to enjoy in-car entertainment to rival any hi-fi store!

The full package includes as standard a 5.6 inch colour monitor with infra-red transmitter, DVD player with remote control, carrying case with anti-slip mat on base, AV output cable TV/video connection and all necessary cables and connectors.

Renee said: "Whether its Buzz Lightyear, Bugs Bunny, Bob Marley or Brian Adams, your passengers’ favourite sights and sounds will keep them occupied – so the driver won’t have to hear the cries of ‘Are we there yet?’"

The satellite navigation and DVD options will be available on Hyundai’s Getz supermini, which goes on sale in October.
