Newsletter March 2014
we’re sorry to be six weeks late with the release of our map update this year. The move to our new office facilities had some impact to our usual routine. But the moving is done and the 2014 Philippine map update is available for download now.
GPS is useful for folks who have been driving for quite some time and for first-time drivers – Read about the results of a research which prove the positive influence of satellite navigation devices on driving and traffic safety.
carNAVi is continously improving the digital GPS map of the Philippines and we’d like to encourage you to actively help in getting the maps better by reporting incorrect map and routing data.
As mentioned at the beginning, we have moved to our new office building. The team is fully operational at the new location. Our new carNAVi showroom and training facilities will follow in a few weeks. Please take note of our new phone number.

GPS has a Positive Effect on Driving and Traffic Safety
GPS is useful for folks who have been driving for quite some time and for first-time drivers – to avoid getting lost ending up in unfamiliar/strange places. Avoid swerving (and being apprehended by the police) by prompting you way before so you can go to the proper lane. In addition, some car navigation system enables you to use your cellphone hands-free with Bluetooth technology allowing you to free up your hands for driving safely. The leading Dutch research institute TNO today announced the results of research which prove the positive influence of satellite navigation devices on driving and traffic safety.
Key findings of the research:
• The use of car navigation improves the driver’s behaviour when driving through an unknown area.
• The use of satellite navigation system heightens alertness and reduces the stress levels of the driver.
• Drivers who do NOT have the use of a satellite navigation solution have 12% more damage claims.
• The use of a car satellite navigation solution reduces the amount of miles driven by 16%.
• The use of a car satellite navigation solution reduces travel time when driving through an unknown area to an unknown destination by 18%.
• The use of a car satellite navigation solution reduces the workload (the amount of effort it takes the driver to drive) of the driver when travelling through an unknown area to an unknown destination.
