Nokia, Land Rover Offer Advanced Handsfree Solution

Oct 06, 2004

Handsfree system with flexible mobile holder for Land Rover vehicles enables use of diverse mobile phones

Nokia and Land Rover have jointly developed the Personal Telephone Integration (PTI) System, an integrated automotive communications solution especially for Land Rover vehicles such as the All-New Discovery 3 and Range Rover. The system offers a range of sophisticated features such as connection either via Bluetooth wireless technology or via wired connection by using a compatible mobile phone holder. The PTI System can be used with a wide range of mobile phones from different manufacturers.


Bluetooth:
Chip technology enabling seamless voice and data connections between a wide range of devices through short-range digital two-way radio. It is an open specification for short-range communications of data and voice between both mobile and stationary devices. For instance, it specifies how mobile phones, WIDs, computers and PDAs interconnect with each other, with computers, and with office or home phones.


With the PTI System, users can conveniently access key mobile phone functions such as viewing and selecting phonebook entries, initiating and receiving incoming calls, viewing call logs and managing text messages - all via the vehicle's central infotainment display. The PTI System delivers a superior communications experience by integrating with the vehicles' high quality audio system. Voice dialling and other key phone functions can be activated using the vehicles' steering wheel controls. The state-of-the art voice function enables speaker independent number dialling and access to voice tags.

"Today's drivers demand more advanced technology than ever before in their vehicles. We are confident the PTI System we developed for Land Rover will meet with the expectations of Land Rover customers by seamlessly integrating some of todays leading-edge technologies such as voice recognition and wireless connectivity to name but a few," said Marcus Stahl, General Manager Automotive Accounts, Nokia Smart Traffic Products.

New Land Rover vehicles with the PTI System are expected to be available in Q4 2004 in Europe, Asia and the USA.
