Nissan to launch Bluetooth based telematics systems for cars.
Nissan is using the CSR BlueCore Bluetooth kit as part of an advanced telematics system, christened Carwings. The system, which offers enhanced GPS and entertainment features as well as integrated handsfree, is provided by Xanavi Informatics Corporation, an established partner of Nissan and CSR.

Currently, Nissan models featuring the integrated Carwings service include the new Nissan Fuga luxury sedan, the Lafesta minivan, the Tiida Latio compact sedan and the Tiida and Note compact hatchbacks.

The system aims to improve usability of in-car navigation. In addition to the in-car telematics / infotainment system which includes GPS navigation and TV in selected models, Carwings also offers a 24 hour telephone operator assistance for traffic information, vehicle location and journey planning

The Bluetooth connectivity provided by CSR's BlueCore, allows Bluetooth-enabled mobile handsets to connect wirelessly to the in-car system, making use of the handsfree capability and transferring downloaded applications and user information to the car unit. Users can also synchronise personal information including ID details, telephone directories and other contact information between a home computer, mobile handset and car system.
