This service will allow the GPS system in your phone, to be viewed in the LCD screen on your stock car stereo. You can also use the service on the Sony GS line car stereos, as well as JVC, Pioneer, ect. Although you will need a supported device for it to work. Its really cool, you should check it out.

1. Have a device and service that this can support that you pay for independently of the automobile and its factory equipment.
2. Buy an automobile that has this capability.
3. Have your smartphone and your automobile sync with each other and have the service that you pay your cellular provider for appear on the screen in the car that you have paid for...

Cool I got it ....EXCEPT!


Since your automobile's screen that you own as a part of your automobile is ONLY acting as an auxiliary screen displaying a service that you are already paying for through your cellular provider?

.The $25.00 fee is a good question. Call Telenav & see what they say. I tried other services before I paid $25.00 for this service. And to be honest, $25.00 for one year isn’t that bad.
As far as I know, Google GPS will not work on these systems. Telenavs Scout also works like yelp also, so its not just a GPS system. Not sure if you need that, & its really simple to use.
