Rüsselsheim. Outstanding connectivity and entertainment are now available in Opel’s flagship: The personal connectivity and service assistant and the Navi 900 IntelliLink infotainment system with smartphone integration provide an even more versatile and faster infotainment offer in the Opel Insignia. The connection of Opel OnStar to the internet and the navigation calculation now happen in real time – even the short breaks when uploading a selected route are now a thing of the past.
“Opel is in an exemplary position when it comes to vehicle connectivity. This is just as true for the Insignia as it is for the new Astra or the IntelliLink pioneer, the ADAM. Our flagship now comes with Opel OnStar and the ultra-modern Navi 900 IntelliLink system. This will enable us to integrate the smartphone quickly and straightforwardly via Apple CarPlay and shortly via Android Auto. This is mobile connectivity that makes sense and is fun,” said Peter Christian Küspert, Vice President Sales & Aftersales Opel Group.
The latest generation of the Navi 900 IntelliLink system ensures excellent and individual entertainment. The system, compatible with Apple iPhone 5 (or higher) brings the individual smartphone world into the Insignia both quickly and comprehensively: Drivers can access Apple CarPlay maps and news services as soon as connectivity has been established. Furthermore, additional apps can be controlled via Siri eyes free voice control or the 8-inch touchscreen on the center stack.
Each system builds off of the features smartphone users rely on most. Apple CarPlay takes the iPhone features you would want to access while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display in a smart, simple manner. That allows drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and compatible third party apps. A full list of those apps can be found at apple.com/ios/carplay.
The latest generation Navi 900 IntelliLink also offers the possibility of individually configuring the homepage and specifying favorites. 60 memory spaces are available for favorite radio stations, contacts, addresses, telephone numbers, artists or playlists. In order to keep distraction to a minimum, the most important IntelliLink information is displayed in the instrument panel between the speedometer and rev counter. Furthermore, the driver and passenger can watch videos on the 8-inch monitor in the center console via a USB connection – but for safety reasons this is obviously only possible when the car is stationary.
Navi 900 IntelliLink comes as standard in the Sport and INNOVATION trim levels. For the Edition and Selection trim levels, it is available for €1,200 and €1,335 respectively (RRP including VAT in Germany). Digital Audio Broadcasting DAB+ increases program choice and sound quality for €210, thus rounding off the entertainment and sound package.
Furthermore, the Insignia comes with Opel OnStar as standard from the Edition trim level. The integrated 4G/LTE architecture turns Opel’s flagship into a powerful mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot. A special external antenna maximizes connectivity and delivers a stable internet connection for up to seven devices.
The extensive services are the heart and soul of the personal connectivity and service assistant. They range from around the clock Automatic Crash Response to Stolen Vehicle and Roadside Assistance, right up to Vehicle Diagnostics. All of these services are available at the push of a button – thanks to the system inherent SIM card, a smartphone is not required. Elsewhere a smartphone is needed for the MyOpel smartphone app. It enables OnStar subscribers to request help when away from the vehicle, to lock or unlock the car doors or to access important vehicle data.
