Nissan launches "Carwings" Bluetooth-based telematics systems for cars

Nissan Fuga

Nissan recently launched a Bluetooth-based telematics system for some of their cars, offering enhanced GPS and entertainment features and 24 hour telephone operator assistance.  Nothing really special there, but the Bluetooth connectivity means you'll be able to wirelessly sync up your Bluetooth-enabled cellphone with the unit, transferring downloaded applications and personal information, and even using the phone's handsfree capability to control the unit.  The system, dubbed "Carwings", is currently available in Nissan's Fuga luxury sedan, the Lafesta minivan, the Tiida Latio compact sedan and the Tiida and Note compact hatchbacks.  No word yet on how much of a premium it'll add on to the sticker price.
