The idea is to take navigation to the next level -- past your connected vehicle and onto that walk or metro ride from your car to your final destination.
(PRWEB) March 13, 2014
There is now less than 24 hours until nomination submissions for the Telematics Update Awards close – the only global telematics awards ceremony - March 14, 5.00 pm GMT. As businesses large and small submit impressive nominations, the navigation industry strives to gain this seal of excellence and affirm their position as industry leader. The navigation market is one of the most mature fields of the telematics industry. Winning the Best Navigation Solution or Product Award will pin point which company is the premier organization of the vast navigation field.
Jan Stojaspal, Editor, Telematics Update commented on this period of evolution, "The idea is to take navigation to the next level -- past your connected vehicle and onto that walk or metro ride from your car to your final destination. That is what Mercedes-Benz hopes to accomplish by integrating in-car navigation with Google Glass and what many other carmakers are trying to do with smartphone apps."
Last year saw a deadlock between Audi and Total Traffic Network coming in joint pole-position; and the top spot this year will no doubt see fierce competition between companies from across the navigation field.
As we move towards a new era of navigation, the opportunity for this accolade could not be timelier. Submitting an entry is completely free and the rewards from being shortlisted are invaluable- a unique recognition of innovation and excellence before potential partners and the media spotlight. Nominations must be submitted by March 15, and can be done here: http://www.telematicsupdate.com/detroit/awards-nominate.php.
Best Navigation Solution or Product Award

In a ceremony worthy of the Oscars, awards will be presented at a glamorous event in front of an audience of industry peers, press and media; champagne, celebrations and glamour will flow.
