New York - The Goodyear Tire and Rubber company has entered into a trademark license agreement with The NCC to launch its first line of Goodyear branded, driver-focused GPS navigation systems at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, 7-10 Jan.
After more than a century making tyres, â€œThe GPS systems are a giant step forward in terms of safety and show the company's continued passion to get drivers where they need to go,â€ said Barry Rosenstock, VP of Operations for the NCC, in a 3 Jan statement from Goodyear.
Goodyear will release eight models which it claims will have features â€œnever before seen on mobile navigation systems,â€ including a remote control to access hands-free communication, with a single quick-touch button to answer and hang up incoming calls, Bluetooth, 4.3â€ LCD touch screens and MP3 playback.
Certain models will also feature MSN direct service, for live traffic updates, local gas prices, weather reports, and even local movie times, said Goodyear.
