Garmin ® International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced Gemini, a new navigation core designed for the auto OEM market. Building upon Garmin’s industry-leading technology, Gemini provides automakers a faster, more intuitive and feature-rich in-dash navigation experience than ever before. The accompanying Software Development Kit (SDK) allows automakers to fully customize the feature set as well as the look and feel to meet their specific needs. Gemini features advanced 3D graphics for better orientation and smart navigation features. The ability to integrate automatic over-the-air (OTA) map and software updates can make it easier for drivers to keep their system current.

“One of the major challenges for in-dash navigation systems is to keep pace with the performance and feature-richness of consumer products,” said Matt Munn, Garmin managing director automotive OEM. “Garmin’s strong foothold in the consumer business has helped our auto OEM group to secure top rankings in satisfaction surveys. The new Gemini navigation core continues this success story by delivering even better performance and comprehensive customization options for automakers to meet their individual needs.”

Map drawing, route calculation and search are twice as fast with Gemini as compared to previous Garmin software. The performance advancements allow for the integration of advanced 3D city models that show realistic and beautifully rendered 3D graphics for better orientation. This includes navigable roads, parks, rivers, and textured buildings. Keeping maps and software up to date has never been easier: Gemini enables automakers to integrate automatic OTA updates. By allowing partial and incremental updates, the system can automatically connect using WIFI or LTE networks to download the latest changes to the road or POI database. Garmin provides an SDK that allows automakers to easily integrate Gemini into any in-dash system and fully customize every aspect, such as the navigation functionalities and live services as well as the look and feel of the user interface and maps to meet the design language of any system.
