Detachable navigation section
integrates into double-DIN unit as the AVN2210p,

poised for sales to start in North America as an ECLIPSE Product.

FUJITSU TEN LIMITED (Kobe, Japan−President: Keijiro Katsumaru) today announced that the ECLIPSE AVN2210p would be available for sale in North America this SPRING 2007.

With the spread of navigation devices seen on a global scale, sales of PND(Personal Navigation Device) have been increasing along with sales of factory-installed navigation integrated with entertainment systems. PNDs have seen a steady rise in sales due to their ease-of-use and convenience -- being able to be used in other vehicles, going over travel routes at home, added security because they can be removed from the vehicle, affordable pricing and portability.

Against this backdrop, FUJITSU TEN brings the best of both worlds together. This product is a double- DIN sized audio unit with a factory-fit console appearance that also integrates a navigation section that can be detached and used independently.
The AVN2210p combines all the advantages of a full-featured usefulness of a PND into a product that a greater number of consumers can enjoy at an attractive price point.

AVN2210p development was a collaborative effort with TomTom N.V. (the Netherlands, Chairman/CEO Harold Goddijn) , a leading portable navigation solution provider in the USA and Europe. FUJITSU TEN was responsible for the overall project and product development while TomTom provided the navigation system.

The AVN2210p is equipped with a 3.5" TFT display. Map database for Canada and the USA is contained in a compact SD memory card.

The detachable navigation section incorporates a GPS antenna, built-in speaker and rechargeable battery, making it fully operable independently when removed from the main unit. Users can also access TomTom PLUS services including weather and traffic reports. These can easily be managed using TomTom HOME, a proprietary software application that is provided at no charge.

FM/AM, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3 and WMA files can be enjoyed even when the navigation section is removed. Additional source options include USB memory devices with MP3 music, iPod®, Bluetooth® enabled cellular phones for hands-free calls, and digital satellite radio tuners.

In North America, this product will be available this coming spring, and is scheduled to be available in European countries by the end of the year.
