Worldwide Volvo dealerships to offer customized nüvi 760
Garmin today has announced that Volvo Cars Corporation has selected the nüvi 760 as a customized navigation solution for select Volvo cars, including the new Volvo C30 and Volvo XC70. The Volvo specific nüvi 760 will be available at dealerships across Europe and North America.

"This transaction strengthens Garmin's growing position as a recognized supplier to the automotive industry," said Roger Jollis, Garmin's director of OEM & mobile marketing.

Volvo's dealer-fitted accessory kit includes the nüvi 760, as well as a smart mounting bracket that is positioned on top of the dashboard. The bracket is designed specifically to coordinate with the look and style of the vehicle, and eliminates the need for exposed power cables and suction cup mount typically found on portable navigation devices. Volvo's built-in bracket folds down when not in use. The nüvi 760 may also be taken off the mount and moved between different cars.

"We have chosen Garmin as our partner for our new Volvo Portable navigation offer," said Lars-Erik Roos, Volvo's managing director, accessory business unit. "I believe that our customers will appreciate this combination navigation product with the Volvo integrated and well designed installation kit."

The nüvi 760 navigation package fits current production Volvo car models, including the new Volvo C30 and Volvo XC70. It can also be fitted to a selected number of earlier models. The nüvi 760 accessory kit for Volvo is expected to be available from early December 2007.
