, and now it's applying that knowledge to the car market with its new Here Auto connected car platform.
Nokia announced the new platform today, describing it as an application that can be embedded to a vehicle's navigation system. It also has a cloud service and a mobile app.
Those who have the Here Auto software in their in-car navigation system can take advantage of maps (2D, 3D or street-level) and voice navigation -- all without the need for a data connection. But with Web access, drivers can get real-time weather and traffic updates.
The mobile app ties into the service, allowing drivers to find their car and plan trips ahead of time.
There's no word on when it Here Auto will be available, but Nokia is working with parts supplier Continental to recruit automakers willing to integrate the software into their systems. For the time being, the app works exclusively with Windows Phones, but it should be available to iOS and Android later.
Here Auto will make an appearance at the International Motor Show in Germany on September 10.
