Home Your Tech Mobility iGo satnav software goes green

The latest release of Nav N Go's iGo GPS navigation software features green routing.

iGo Primo 1.1, the latest version of the OEM navigation software from Hungary-based Nav N Go features green routing and a simpler API for developers that need to obtain location information.

The new software generates fast, easy-to-follow, short and green routes. The latter takes into account engine type (petrol, diesel or hybrid), anticipated travel speed, and user-entered rural and urban fuel consumption.

"Fuel efficiency and minimising CO2-emissions are hot topics in the automotive industry; with Green routing in iGO primo we intend to defend our prominent position in the low-cost and ultra-low-cost automotive segment," said CEO Tamás Vahl.

Also new in version 1.1 is the Simple Location API to make life easier for application developers, provision for users to edit speed camera locations, localised road signs to warn of animal crossings etc, and 4WD routing for Australia.
