Title (EN) VEHICLE NAVIGATION SYSTEM WITH PORTABLE PERSONAL COMPUTER
(FR) SYSTEME DE NAVIGATION DE VEHICULE COMPRENANT UN ORDINATEUR PERSONNEL PORTATIF
Abstract:
(EN) A vehicle navigation system includes a base and a handheld device which is portable relative to the base and dockable to the base. The handheld device includes a GPS receiver, display and user input devices and provides limited navigation capability when detached from the base. The base includes additional databases and navigation sensors which provide a full function navigation system when the handheld device is docked to the base station, including turn-by-turn navigation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de navigation de véhicule comprenant une base et un dispositif de poche qui est portatif vis-à-vis de la base et peut être couplé à la base. Le dispositif de poche comprend un récepteur GPS, un affichage et des dispositifs d'entrée utilisateur, et a des capacités de navigation limitées lorsqu'il est séparé de la base. La base comprend des bases de données supplémentaires et des détecteurs de navigations qui permettent de constituer un système de navigation toutes fonctions lorsque le dispositif de poche est couplé à la station de base, y compris la navigation 'turn-by-turn'.
