Clarion to Supply Touchscreen Navigation Device for Mitsubishi Pajero Full and Outlander in Brazil

Tokyo, Japan (November 30, 2009) – Clarion Co., Ltd, the pioneering global manufacturer of vehicle electronic devices, today announced that it will supply the VX709B DVD multimedia station and NP509B navigation system as a unit for installation in the Mitsubishi Pajero Full and Outlander in Brazil beginning in late November. Clarion also will supply the VX709B alone for installation in the Outlander.

The Pajero Full and Outlander are imported and marketed in Brazil by MMC Automotores do Brasil Ltda. (MMCB), a local production and sales company affiliated with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation. This is the first time for a full-spec touchscreen navigation device to be supplied for automobiles marketed in Brazil.

The VX709B is a 2-DIN DVD multimedia station with 7-inch touchscreen, shipped ready for Bluetooth® connectivity and steering-wheel remote control. The VX709B, which went on sale in February 2009, is the Brazilian-market version of the VX709 series, which Clarion also markets to consumers in North America (VX709), Europe (VX709E) and Asia-Pacific (VX709A) except Japan.

The NP509B is a full-spec navigation system with 3D map, 3D landmarks and rewritable point-of-interest (POI) information stored in 2GB flash memory. It also is equipped with a dictionary database of street names for voice-guided navigation. The NP509B, which went on sale in August 2009, is the Brazilian-market version of the NP509 series, which also is marketed to consumers in North America (NP509), Europe (NP509E) and Asia-Pacific (NP509A) except Japan.

Clarion do Brasil Ltda., Clarion’s Brazilian subsidiary, plans to offer similar units to makers of luxury cars in the growing Brazilian market. The company has been supplying the MAX 685, a multimedia station, to MMCB since March 2009.
