Home Your Tech Entertainment Nissan first with SUNA as standard
Nissan has become the first Australian vehicle importer to offer SUNA Traffic Channel as a standard feature.

SUNA is an adjunct to in-vehicle GPS systems. Live traffic information from a variety of sources is broadcast alongside commercial radio signals, and decoded by appropriately equipped satnav devices.

This warns drivers of congestion, and more advanced GPS units can use the data to navigate around trouble spots.

The Nissan X-Trail Ti and TL, and Patrol Ti will be fitted with a SUNA-compatible GPS as standard.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to provide the SUNA service to our customers," said Dan Thompson, CEO of Nissan Australia.

"We are constantly looking for new ways to inject more value into our vehicles and believe integrating real-time traffic information into our GPS technology will dramatically improve our customers’ driving experience."

Adam Game, CEO of Intelematics Australia welcomed the decision, saying "We are looking forward to working with Nissan to deliver its X-Trail Ti and TL, and Patrol Ti customers the very latest in convenient GPS features. This new alliance will further extend Intelematics' partnership network in the automotive industry and help drive the SUNA brand in the in-vehicle navigation market."

SUNA Traffic Channel serves Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.
