Most Popular iPhone and iPad Navigation App — MotionX-GPS Drive — First to Integrate With Revolutionary In-Car Aftermarket Infotainment Solution

 

SANTA CRUZ, CA–(Marketwire – Jun 7, 2011) – Fullpower®-MotionX® today announced it has collaborated with Pioneer Electronics to deliver its best selling iPhone and iPad navigation app, MotionX-GPS Drive, as the first navigation solution to integrate with Pioneer’s groundbreaking AppRadio.

 

As a leading innovator in iPhone and iPad navigation, Fullpower-MotionX, has worked with Pioneer to improve the iPhone’s in car experience. MotionX-GPS Drive customers can take advantage of Pioneer AppRadio’s capacitive touchscreen for enhanced access to the popular turn-by-turn navigation solution accessing its breakthrough 3D maps, real-time traffic information, live point of interest data along with Facebook and Wikipedia integration.

 

Pioneer’s AppRadio provides consumers with a revolutionary way to use apps in the car as one of the first in-vehicle devices designed explicitly to utilize the processing power, storage capacity, network connectivity and apps of the iPhone 4.0 as the primary source for its information and entertainment capabilities. Pioneer’s AppRadio will be available in late June with a suggested retail price below $500.

 

“Pioneer is rethinking connectivity by tapping into the power of the smartphone, while simultaneously providing a solution that safely merges the consumer’s connected lifestyle into the vehicle,” said Ted Cardenas, director of marketing for the car electronics division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “AppRadio fully embraces the iPhone, which has become the window to our mobile connectivity and provides a comprehensive and safer way to use apps in the car.”

 

“With MotionX and Pioneer we can now experience the next generation of in-car and pedestrian navigation,” said Philippe Kahn, founder and CEO of Fullpower-MotionX. “The MotionX Pioneer partnership shows the vision for the future of navigation.”

 

AppRadio and MotionX-GPS Drive gives you the best of both worlds. Start your navigation experience in the office or at home, enter your destination or by pulling data from your iPhone contact list. Once in the car, connect to AppRadio’s enhanced 6.1 inch screen for viewing MotionX-GPS Drive’s 3D maps and turn-by-turn directions. The iPhone becomes a convenient secondary screen allowing a variety of activities such as emailing destination arrival times to colleagues, accessing point of interest information or getting the latest traffic updates. All this while using AppRadio as a speaker phone and accessing all your music and audio books from your iPhone.

 

MotionX-GPS Drive is immediately available for the iPad and the iPhone in the App Store. This upgrade is free to current MotionX-GPS Drive iPhone and iPad customers.
