Car Rental Agency Application

  • GPS-based navigation in rental cars

Details...
Avis was the first car-rental firm to introduce GPS-based navigation in rental cars and had installed the equipment in 1000 vehicles in 1995. To use the computer-based navigational system, you press a button on a 4-inch monitor and a message warns you to keep your eyes on the road. Then it asks you where you want to go, allowing you to scroll down a list of pre-selected points of interest, such as hotels, convention centers, or a specific street address. As you drive, the unit (built by Rockwell International Corp) displays a color map of the area that you are passing. It also emits an audible alarm prompt, just before when you need to turn or take an exit. The feature is available for an extra charge.
