carNAVi GPS, more powerful than everAs roads are developing, so do our maps. Have your carNAVi as fresh as new, download and install the latest map update. As usual we offer just one easy to use installer that serves all models and is available for Windows and Mac OS-X.

The growing demand of travellers having US maps started the idea of providing free maps covering major US cities and other travel destinations.

We offer already quite a wide range of navigation devices and now we are proud to announce the release of another S-family model by next month.

The Philippine Government started Project NOAH, a very interesting and helpful tool.

Model outlook

carNAVi S 500.
The carNAVi S 400 set the standard for affordable and easy to use navigation devices in the Philippines end of last year.

With the growing demand of larger displays we are now introducing a new member of the S-family, the carNAVi S 500. This unit will be the most efficient navigation device with a large display in the market.

The S 500 will be available for a revolutionary price by middle of August.


Project NOAH

The Department of Science and Technology launched a project called ‘Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards’ (NOAH). This project is the response to President Aquino’s instructions to put a responsive program for disaster prevention and mitigation in place, specifically, for the Philippines’ warning agencies to be able to provide a 6 hour lead-time warning to vulnerable communities against impending floods and to use advanced technology to enhance current geo-hazard vulnerability maps.
