Mopar offers a Garmin-built GPS automotive navigation system as a dealer-installed option specifically designed for many of its 2005-2007 models. Named the Navus, the system is available for vehicles including the popular Chrysler 300C, Dodge Magnum, Charger, Dakota, Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Navus provides premium automotive navigation capabilities -- including pre-loaded maps, an easy-to-use touchscreen interface and a high- resolution color TFT display, automatic route calculation, and turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions -- at a price that is significantly less than most built-in systems.

It is estimated that Dealers will be able to install the Navus in less than 30 minutes. The Navus is connected directly into the vehicle's bus interface, allowing it to interact seamlessly with other vehicle systems such as lighting and ignition control. The unit is incorporated atop the dashboard in clear view of the driver and passengers - providing a look and feel that that complements the interior of the automobile. If GPS signals are temporarily lost (due to skyscrapers or mountainous terrain), the system provides dead reckoning capabilities to assist in navigation.
