Hungarian success: NNG system used by Ford
A navigation system developed by NNG and customized for Ford’s needs is used in three new Ford models in 50 countries of the seven regions in the world, reports Napi.hu.
According to the announcement, the first Ford Explorer, Expedition and Mustang models will be introduced no later than this fall.
NNG developed unique features for certain markets which are appropriate for the local needs such as the Mekka search in the Arab region or the complete off-road support in Africa. The software can handle the local languages and dialects.
“It is a great pleasure for us to have a brand among our partners which has a huge history, and which is active on the global market. We worked in a tight collaboration with the engineers of Ford throughout the project.”
