HARMAN was looking for a navigation software supplier for its Becker® MAP PILOT. Becker® MAP PILOT is an innovative, multifunctional mobile navigation system that is offered for Mercedes-Benz SLK and C-Class, and also as an aftermarket product. HARMAN needed to integrate the mobile navigation system into the vehicle electronics system as well as into the control concept of Mercedes-Benz.
EB Automotive developed a navigation solution based on EB street director. The solution fulfills all relevant requirements of an in-dash system, such as rotary-push-button control and intuitive voice entry. Based on EB street director Assistant, Becker® MAP PILOT Webshop offers regular updates and upgrades for consumers. The human machine interface (HMI) was adapted to HARMAN design using EB GUIDE.
HARMAN benefited from EB street director’s versatile range of applications and EB’s deep experience in the PND and installation fields. HARMAN and EB developed a navigation solution that allowed Mercedes-Benz to offer its customers a high-performance navigation device.
