[ News, Science / Tech, March 13 2008] Easy system for updating car navigation systems developed

A state-run telecommunication laboratory said Thursday (March 13) that it has developed a technology to allow people to easily update information on their car navigation systems via mobile phones.

The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) said the new method uses conventional Wibro and code division multiple access mobile phones to gain access to the Internet and then directly download any changes to maps stored in the navigation systems.

It said the technology is optimized so that only changed data will be updated, which could enhance the input speed.
