The Korea Herald reports that BMW Korea has established a business cooperation alliance with Hyundai Autonet for development of a navigation system.
The report says that the BMW navigation system will be developed on a budget of about 700 million won before March next year. The exclusive system for BMW will be installed on the 760Li series, which will begin sales in May next year in Korea, according to the newspaper.
The report adds that the navigation system includes a 3-D screen, a remote control, separate speakers and all functions necessary for guiding the driver through traffic jams and complicated directions. The system also holds data for all BMW showrooms and service centres.
“In order to satisfy growing consumer demands in Korea, we decided to offer a navigation system just for Korea. We hope such specialised service will help satisfy BMW buyers in this important market,” BMW Korea President Kim Hyo-joon told the newspaper.
