This report provides Transforma Insights’ view on the In-Vehicle Navigation market.

The In-Vehicle Navigation market includes applications used to navigate and provide routing to drivers. These applications have multiple features such as finding a specific location, determining the best route, real-time traffic updates, points of interest, offline map updates, and weather forecasts. In-Vehicle Navigation can be hosted on factory-fit vehicle head units or on dedicated aftermarket devices. Additionally, smartphones can also be used to access these applications, as they provide turn-by-turn navigation through apps such as Google Maps and Apple Maps that has increased competition for both navigation applications on vehicle head unit (embedded solutions) and aftermarket.

The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market. The forecasts include analysis of the number of IoT connections by geography, the technologies used (including splits by 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA, short range, satellite, and others), as well as the revenue split between module, value-added connectivity, and services. A full set of forecast data, including country-level forecasts, sector break-downs and public/private network splits, is available through the IoT Forecast tool.
