AVT Navigation and Multi-Media Devices Showcased in 2012 PIMS
AVT, a Filipino company pioneering in vehicle navigation and multi-media devices, will once again be showcasing a new range of products at the upcoming 4th Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS), to be held from August 16-19, 2012, at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The latest model of the AVT personal navigation range, the AVT PN-504, will be launched at the event. Featuring a new high-resolution 5-inch LCD touchscreen, the AVT PN-504 is powered by the latest Atlas IV 533MHz CPU with a built-in high sensitivity GPS receiver that is quickly able to acquire a GPS fix in 3-minutes. In terms of functionality, the AVT PN-504 also serves as a multi-media player (MP3/MP4/WMA/WMV/AVI/3GP), a photo viewer, and offers extras such as a calculator, calendar and unit conversion.
Beyond these technical specifications, the utility of the AVT PN-504 lies in the pre-loaded Advanced Philippine Map exclusively developed by iNAV. Unique to the AVT Navigator range is improved turn-by-turn navigation with (a) junction lane assist, with an enlarged view of where you need to make the turn; (b) 3D junction view, so you get a 3D guide of which lane you should take; (c) 3D buildings, to provide landmarks for better location identification; and (d) speed camera, to warn of approaching speed cams and avoid speed violations. All AVT PN devices come with free updates for two years, so that you can update your maps with the latest changes to the country's road network.
While smartphones and tablets now offer mapping services, a dedicated navigation device such as the AVT PN-504 is still offers advantages you do not need to pay for a broadband data plan and do not have to worry about battery drain.
Exclusively for the 2012 Philippine International Motor Show, visitors to the AVT booth will be able to trade in their old navigation devices of whatever brand to receive very special discounts and freebies on various AVT PN models.
Vehicle owners who are concerned about security and safety may also take a closer look at the AVT iSTAR, a portable tracking device that works on the GSM/GPRS networks and GPS satellites. It can be used to track and monitor your vehicle and even has a built-in microphone so you can listen in to conversations and sounds inside a tracked vehicle. It also has SOS/emergency alert, low battery alert, geo-fencing and mieage report features. Location can be checked by SMS or web apps.
Finally, the AVT booth will also display customized multi-media systems for various vehicle models. These include custom head units for the Honda CRV and Civic; Hyundai Accent, Elantra, Sonata and Tucson; Subaru Forester and Legacy; Toyota Camry and Prado; and others.
Visitors to the 2012 PIMS will enjoy very special prices on all AVT products, including the "trade-in" promo for navigation devices; hefty discounts on custom multi-media systems; as well as 0-interest on installment payments.
