The Benefits to Buying a Honda with the Navigation System Included

 

If you decide to buy a new vehicle from Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda then it is worth considering opting to have a model with GPS built-in to the dashboard.  It’s possible to have fully-integrated GPS with the following ranges; Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-Z, CRV, Element, Fit, Insight, Odsyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline.  But why pay a small bit extra for GPS?  There are a number of reasons, both economical benefits and also green-living factors.  Here’s why you should consider this added extra.


No Need to Buy a Standalone GPS

 

If you have the Honda Navigation System then there is no need to spend money on a separate device such as a Garmin or TomTom.  In addition to that, the GPS will be fully integrated into your dashboard with no messy wires visible, plus some models even come with a rear-view camera installed so you can get in and out of those tricky small spaces a lot easier.


Using a GPS Device Saves You Money

 

Recent research conducted in Germany monitored the driving habits over a year of one thousand people.  Half of them used a GPS, and the remaining half relied on instinct and road knowledge.  The ones using a GPS satellite navigation product on average made the following savings over a 12 month period:

 

  • Overall drove shorter distances
  • They spent less time driving and behind the wheel
  • Their fuel efficiency was increased by a factor 12%
  • Gas consumption fell from a high of 8.3 to 7.3 liters every 100km
  • This better fuel economy equated to a .91 ton reduction their C02 emissions annually per driver
  • They manage to reduce their annual driving distances 2,500km for each driver

 

The reason these savings are made in both the wallet and environment is because a GPS like the Honda Navigation System will always try to route you the quickest or shortest route possible.  The new Honda Navigation units also come with Real-Time Traffic alerts.  This means you will know about a traffic jam before you reach it, and the GPS will re-route you to avoid it.  Traffic jams are the number one place for high fuel consumption and gas costs due to the “stop-start” nature of the driving style adopted.
