Navigation/Phone Mind Meld

Everyone has places to go, people to see, and the need to figure out how to get there. Navigation systems have been developed to help with the last bit (people and places are up to you), but still require you to have the address written down so you can enter it when you get down to the car. At least, that was the way of things until recently.

In a press release earlier this week, Pioneer announced the creation of an iPhone® application called AVIC FEEDS App to use with the AVIC-U310BT and AVIC-Z110BT in-dash navigation systems. The app is intended to allow the phone and navigation systems to connect to each other and pass information via the Bluetooth®.

For those of you lucky enough to be an owner of both, you are in for a treat or two. AVIC FEEDS App will allow users to search for points of interest or take photos, which are automatically geotagged, to be accessed later via the in-dash systems for those spur of the moment return visits.

This use of saved photos sounds like the better of the two features. Think of all the times you have been wandering around and seen some place that you just do not have the time to stop and see. Sure, you can probably remember the name of the place and/or the cross streets, but now you do not have to. Added bonus, you have a record of what the front looked like to confirm you found the place. Sounds good to me.

Oh, best of all, AVIC FEEDS App is free.
