With more OEM speakers at the conference than ever before, in-car navigation is a fundamental focus of the agenda, but mobile navigation is also a key component. As smartphone penetration continues to soar and Google Maps hits 100 million visitors per month, attendees of Navigation Strategies USA will have a unique forum to analyze the impact free mobile navigation on the wider navigation industry, and identify revenue-generating opportunities for the future.

As well as free mobile navigation, and in response to the launch of Terminal Mode earlier this year, a large portion of this year’s agenda will focus on the seamless integration of apps and content in the vehicle. Expert speakers from GM, Pandora, BMW and Panasonic will be talking about what services people will want in their car, alongside navigation, and discuss who’ll win control of this lucrative new market.

New additions for this year also include a session on eco-navigation and another on augmented reality. These new technologies will be discussed alongside old favourites such as traffic and the on-going device debate. Quite simply, no other event out there gives such a detailed, objective look at the maturing navigation market.
