Voyager is claimed to be the first standalone Connected Car Smartphone device that can be installed in any car and operates using an existing phone number via a twin-SIM.
Partner Communications Company (NASDAQ and TASE: PTNR), a leading Israeli communications operator and Accel Telecom Ltd., a leading connected car innovation company announced Sunday that they have commercially launched Voyager, the Connected Car Smartphone.
The device will be launched by Partner at a price of 1900 Shekels. It combines Android-based smartphone technology with an HSUPA Qualcomm module to deliver a driver-centric device that ensures safer calling, easy navigation via a dedicated Waze launcher key and multiple car focused applications.
According to the company, Voyager is designed to enhance safe driving with hands-free dialing while dedicated large physical keys, HD echo free sound quality, and an in-car 3G Wi-Fi Hotspot connection are among its core features.
Voyager also connects to the car on-board diagnostics (OBD) to allow car diagnostics and acts as a “black box” for Fleet Management applications, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and more.
