The system superimposes digital data on the video camera, which detects vehicles ahead running, road signs and stop. The display on the dashboard also displays information on local attractions, restaurants, gas stations and other places of interest in the form of large pop icons.


Photos from the onboard camera, made during the passage of a given route are stored on servers Pioneer for future use by other drivers with the same navigation system. This allows real-time monitoring of the situation on the road. Pre-installed bookmarks are central streets of the city and the places where there are often traffic jams.
