Introduced to the U.S. Market at CES 2005
AVN5495

@FUJITSU TEN LIMITED(Headquarters: Kobe, Japan, President: Takamitsu Tsuchimoto, Capital: 5.3billion yen) announces hard disk-based navigation AVN5495, the company's new product lineup for the ECLIPSE brand navigation series.

@AVN5495 was developed from the concept AVN; integration of audio, visual and navigation technologies into a single double-DIN sized product, which enhanced a car's center console. In 1997, ECLIPSE was the first to introduce the integrated AVN concept in Japan and today enjoys a leading position as a manufacturer of innovative mobile electronics. The current product line in Japan features seven AVN units, HDD-based as well as DVD-based. In 2004, the first AVN units for sales abroad debuted in the United States and China, gaining much recognition. However, AVN5495 is the first hard disk-based navigation introduced to overseas' markets.

@ The United States is still a market where car navigation has only penetrated the market and therefore the market is significantly smaller than that of Japan. However interest is rapidly growing and the potential is tremendous. Navigation products from other Japanese manufacturers are also being well received and this is encouraging for market expansion.

@ ECLIPSE is currently the sole manufacturer of double-DIN all-in-one units for sale in the United States. The increasing sales of Japanese automobiles is encouraging as all Japanese automobiles are designed to have double-DIN sized installation space in center consoles and consequently offers an optimal window of opportunity to expand sales in the U.S.

@AVN5495 features a 30GB hard disk drive that provides 10GB for navigation database and 20GB for storage of maximum of 3,000 music files. The navigation database covers the contiguous United States as well as Hawaii and parts of Canada and being hard disk-based, responds instantly. Music files are automatically created from CDs by the "Music Juke" function as they are inserted and into the head unit. AVN5495 plays DVD-Video, CDs, CD-R/RWs and MP3 files and provides multichannel surround sound as Circle Surround II* technology is incorporated.

@ AVN5495 along with other new products will make its debut at the "2005 Consumer Electronics Show" to be held in Las Vegas from January 6 through January 9, 2005.

*Circle Surround II is a registered trademark of SRS Labs, Inc.
