It can also display landmark and public facility information on the screen. One of the most outstanding advantages is the elevated-road identification system, which enables the driver to check whether the vehicle is traveling on a high-level road or a general road, helping him/her take the right route. In addition, the navigation tool is integrated with Delphi’s audio system, supporting DVD, HDD, USB, flash-memory, iPod, iPhone and other media. Other functions of the 3D navigation technology include a touch-sensitive panel, a human machine interface system, a rear camera, and a hands-free phone system.
