“We’re very pleased to partner with leading automaker Dongfeng Nissan just
five months after opening our new office in Shanghai,” said Matt Munn, Garmin
managing director automotive OEM. “This new partnership is a major milestone
for our efforts in China and exemplifies our progress in the global automotive
OEM market. CARWINGS MINI provides Dongfeng Nissan customers a top-notch
telematics solution that gets them to their destination as quickly as possible
while providing helpful information on the way.”

Dongfeng Nissan CARWINGS MINI includes the following features:

CARWINGS MINI Connected Services

CARWINGS MINI includes several connected services to provide drivers relevant
information while on the road. A friend finder feature allows drivers to share
their position with friends and family, making it easy to meet up. A dedicated
customer service button connects users to a support agent who can assist
drivers by, for example, helping to look up points of interest or addresses
and sending links back to the unit. With real-time traffic information the
unit can guide drivers around congested roads and construction to help save
time and fuel. Also included are several news feeds and weather forecasts,
which can be read out by the unit, so drivers can keep their hands on the
wheel and eyes on the road. Additionally, the SMS functionality allows users
to read out and dictate messages by voice.

Garmin Premium Navigation

Dongfeng Nissan CARWINGS MINI includes many of Garmin’s signature features
found in the company’s newest PNDs. This includes spoken turn-by-turn
directions, traffic rerouting, lane assistance, speed limit warnings and
current speed display. Garmin’s one-shot address entry via voice command
allows users to enter a destination by voice by simply saying it and without
going through multiple menus. Realistic 3D views of buildings and key
landmarks provide drivers better orientation. Using topographic map data, the
Garmin system also displays 3D terrain views of landscape elevations, helping
drivers to see what lies ahead.

Elegant and Slim Design

At less than 9mm of overall thickness, the detachable unit is one of the
thinnest navigators on the market. The capacitive multi-touch display allows
users to zoom in and out (by double-tapping or “pinching” the map), browse
surrounding areas on the map (dragging a finger), or change perspective from
2D to 3D and rotate the map 360 degrees (two-finger drag or twist).
