Clarion has adopted Furuno’s GV-86 in the NXR16 for in-car navigation and positioning. Clarion is a Japanese manufacturer of in-vehicle infotainment head units, including car navigation systems and car audio systems.

Clarion thoroughly evaluated the Furuno receiver for its robustness in heavy-use environments and the company’s long-term supply-chain capability.

The NXR16, which debuted in June, is designed to fill the needs of professional-use customers in the auto-leasing and rent-a-car industry. It supports multi-language and multi-display features that satisfy the increasing number of foreign tourists using rental-cars.

Furuno’s GV-86 is a dead-reckoning-enabled GNSS receiver that concurrently receives GPS, SBAS and QZSS satellite signals. Its dead-reckoning function enables it to provide high-accuracy positioning in environments where no GNSS signals can be received, such as tunnels, underground car parking and deep urban canyons.

The dead-reckoning function is realized by integrating the information from a gyro sensor and a velocity sensor.
