Mapbox Adds AI to Navigation SDK

Mapbox, a provider of location technology, has added artificial intelligence-powered features in its latest Navigation SDK. These include MapGPT, a unified AI-powered voice assistant for conversations about locations.

MapGPT is exceptionally conversational and integrates tightly into the vehicle, allowing drivers to control their navigation, entertainment, and streaming services, autopilot, and climate control systems, in addition to accessing capabilities from companies like OpenTable, The Weather Company, and TripAdvisor.

"For years, Mapbox has been creating mobile navigation experiences that consumers love—from Strava, to Instacart, to The Weather Company and more." said Peter Sirota, CEO of Mapbox, in a statement. "Now it's about taking those features and the pace of innovation from the mobile ecosystem and bringing that to the automotive form factor, in a natural and cohesive way. Our latest Navigation SDK accelerates what's possible. It's a win for drivers and a win for automakers everywhere."
