CARWINGS will offer routes recommended by the cities of Tateyama and Minami Boso. The navigation-system will display various route options with different themed tourist attractions. Using the CARWINGS automated local information guide, the system will display tourist information in real time. In addition to local news, the driver can listen and find out about the many tourist attractions along the route, which is also displayed on the navigation system monitor.
Nissan will provide details of its CARWINGS-CASTING specification for delivering Internet information to its navigation systems, to expand the reach and encourage greater participation in the project. By using this spec to create RSS feeds, retailers and operators of tourist attractions can deliver higher-quality information through the CARWINGS Internet information channels to a wider audience.
CARWINGS is currently only available in Japan.
