Dearborn, Mich. - The Clarion-supplied, factory-installed voice-activated navigation system, available in the Ford Fusion, took home "Highest Satisfaction" honors in J.D. Power and Associates' 2010 Navigation Usage and Satisfaction Study.
The Clarion navigation system in the Ford Flex ranks second, followed by the Ford Taurus and the Lincoln MKS.
Clarion systems in selected Ford and Lincoln models earned six of the top 10 positions, Clarion said, receiving the highest marks from consumers for system appearance, navigation display screen, routing and speed of system.
The study is based on responses from more than 17,000 consumers who recently purchased or leased 2010 model year vehicles with factory-installed navigation systems.
This marks the seventh J.D. Power and Associates award Clarion has received in the past five years for either in-dash navigation or multimedia systems, and the third award for their factory- installed navigation systems, the manufacturer said.
