Garmin to provide factory-installed navigation, infotainment system for 2013 Suzuki models

Garmin is coming to a Suzuki near you. The global leader in satellite navigation announced today that it will provide a fully-integrated factory-installed infotainment system for the 2013 model year Suzuki vehicles in the United States.

The system combines a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen display with a full-featured infotainment platform, including AM/FM/CD radio, multi-media playback, backup camera, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, Pandora radio and Garmin’s navigation.

“We’re pleased to extend our cooperation with Suzuki Motor Corporation by providing our fully integrated infotainment platform that goes beyond GPS navigation and provides a whole range of information and entertainment functions,” said Matt Munn, Garmin’s managing director automotive OEM. “By leveraging our long-standing experience in developing navigation software, user interfaces and hardware design, we created an integrated system that is easy to use and makes driving more enjoyable.”

The new system will be on display at the 2012 New York Auto Show.
