Mopar NAV system NAVMate 2.0
(discontinued in 2002, supported for disc upgrades until 2005)
Available starting in 1999 as an Mopar accessory for the Grand Cherokee, Durango, Intrepid, Liberty, PT Cruiser, Ram 1500 and Dodge minivans, the Mopar Navigation System was designed to mount next to the radio via a special dash bracket. According to the brochure, using the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Network orbiting the earth, along with information from sensors inside the vehicle, the navigation system quickly and accurately determines your position within 30 feet. Then, using this information, it leads you through the exact route to driving using large, easy to understand icons. In addition, the system uses voice commands that guide you through your trip, mile by mile, turn by turn, until you reach your final destination.
The Mopar NavMate system had an original list price of $1800, which did not include installation. The U.S. maps were originally divided into 3 discs (Eastern, Central, Western), one of which was included free with the system (the latest updates now feature 9 discs for the U.S.). The screen is small, and the system is CD based. Many users have stated it is very accurate. Other companies offer DVD based systems with larger screens but some require changing or adding a CD/DVD head unit. Pioneer also offers NAV units in the $1000-$2000 and up range. Another popular model is the Garmin Streetpilot III, which can be used as a portable or dash-mounted system.
