Garmin announced today that it is the exclusive navigation supplier to Kenwood's new 2008 lineup of in-dash automotive electronics.

Garmin and Kenwood will work together on print, radio, and online advertising, as well as a dedicated internet site and point of purchase materials to inform customers. The program will extend through 2008.
These new Kenwood multimedia units feature either built-in or optional navigation by Garmin, the worldwide leader in GPS with more than 31 million automotive and recreational devices delivered to date.
The navigation component features pre-loaded maps of North America or Europe, along with six million points of interest with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface for hassle-free driving.

The Garmin system uses internal flash memory for driving the navigation software engine so there's no need to swap navigation discs as with many competitive models. Other optional features available on these cutting-edge units include Satellite Radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, high-speed iPod audio and video control, and more.

Both companies have not announced specific devices yet.
