NEW YORK (Jan. 8, 2008) — Goodyear has entered into a trademark license agreement with The NCC NY L.C.C. for a line of Goodyear-branded GPS navigation systems.
The NCC launched eight models of the GPS line at the Consumer Electronics Show, which runs Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas.
The company said the Goodyear models will have features never before seen on mobile navigation systems, including a remote control to access hands-free communication, with a single quick-touch button to answer and hang up incoming cell phone calls.
The units — encased in protective rubber — also feature LCD touch screens, speaker-quality sound, high sensitivity receivers, text-to-speech navigation for spoken street names, millions of points of interest, MP3 and video playback, and A/V inputs for MP3 players, TV tuners or DVD players, the company said.
