Santa Clara, CA: March 15, 2021 -- Telenav, Inc.

Telenav’s VIVID Nav solution will provide SAIC customers with a connected navigation experience that is designed for Europe, SE Asia and ANZ, leveraging over ten years of Telenav’s experience serving local market needs around the world. The solution will address BEV and ICE vehicle needs in markets with both left and right-hand driving.

VIVID Nav delivers a seamless cloud-connected and onboard navigation experience, optimized to provide end users with the most up-to-date map and online content, while minimizing the amount of mobile data used to reduce SAIC’s costs.   Its responsive and flexible routing engine allows users to choose from multiple routing options, including the fastest and eco-friendly routes.

VIVID Nav’s powerful search capabilities make finding destinations, businesses and other points-of-interest (POI) intuitive and user friendly.  The contextual and semantic one-box search can be tailored for the specific local needs of SAIC’s customers in each of those markets. VIVID Nav also incorporates convenient EV-specific features like providing users with a range projection on the map based on the current state of charge of their vehicle’s battery.  Customers are also able to search for charge stations and add them to their routes using a variety of filters including the type of charging supported and the availability of nearby amenities like shops and restaurants.

“VIVID Nav gives us a single solution for both our BEV and ICE vehicles that is tailored for the local needs in each of these overseas markets,“ said Tang ShengHao, Product Manager at SOIMT.  SOIMT is a subsidiary of SAIC Group, responsible for SAIC’s overseas connected car services..
