Self Study Program 397 – Radio / Navigation Systems 2007

VAG SSP 397. Today, due to the speed of technical development and the continuing growth in traffic density, it  is increasingly important to provide car drivers with navigation systems in the form of orientation aids that support them while driving and do not create an additional distraction.

Customers expect systems that are simple and intuitive to use. Users are aware of some of the  possibilities of today’s navigation systems from private, non-automotive life.

Since these units are used in vehicles and not as a standalone system, but as part of a complex  technical network, their adaptation to motorised vehicles requires some time.

In order to also take into account the increased amount of time that drivers spend in their cars  today, Volkswagen has focussed on a collection of infotainment functions that make the time spent in the vehicle as pleasant as possible and entertaining.
