Cobra to Provide AURA Database on Motorola GPS Navigation Systems

By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor

Cobra Electronics, a designer and marketer of communication and navigation products, has announced that its AURA Camera and Driving Hazard Database will now be available on Motorola (News - Alert) GPS Navigation systems in North America and throughout Europe.

Motorola’s MOTONAV GPS units will ship preloaded with the AURA database.

Devices armed with AURA, which stands for “Advanced Universal Road Alert, “warn drivers of thousands of driving threats that could cause unintended traffic violations as well as accidents.

MOTONAV GPS devices now loaded with AURA database will offer speed and red light camera alerts notifying drivers about thousands of driving alerts.

This announcement is said to mark the first time consumer PNDs will feature speed and red light camera detection, as well as known speed traps and dangerous intersection alerts, standard on a GPS device.

Users of MOTONAV GPS with AURA will immediately see the significant financial and safety benefits as users will no be aware of the growing number of photo enforcement cameras.

In North America, Cobra verifies 100 percent of the database's speed and red-light cameras and dangerous intersections by communicating directly with municipal police departments, traffic bureaus, state transportation agencies and proprietary data partners to ensure that every single alert is accurate.
