Honda Says New Navigation System Will Allow Drivers to Send E-mail

October 16, 2001

Japan's Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. and Honda Motor Co announced on Oct. 16 they have developed a car navigation system that allows drivers to send e-mail without taking their hands off the wheel.The next-generation system, which lets drivers listen to their e-mail and encode voice messages into text, will be test launched in 2002, according to the two firms.Aside from map graphics, standard to all car navigation systems, the new system's voice function will also tell the driver about road conditions, according to Honda spokesman Mariko Yabe."The system will also weed out unnecessary e-mail when the road ahead looks too tough for the driver (to be distracted)," she said.
