Nissan North America has taken this idea to a new level with its upcoming 2011 Nissan Quest.
Among other helpful tabs like ‘Amusement Places’, ‘Bars & Clubs’ and ‘Coffee Shops’, the minivan’s satellite navigation system features an ‘Adult Entertainment’ tab.
Trust me, you won’t find any model train sets at Toys.com Inc in La Jolla, the Body Shop in San Diego has nothing to do with soap, and High Heeled Honeys does not sell shoes or sweet spreadable foodstuffs made by bees.
Nissan has hardly tried to disguise it either – it’s the first option under the ‘Places’ menu in the system.
What do you think? Is it inappropriate in a family car or simply useful navigation information?
Meanwhile, Nissan is aiming to introduce North American women to the Quest through the “Mummy Bloggers” parenting social media network – a booming phenomenon in the US.
Nissan has invited online parenting columnists and websites to get behind the wheel of the Quest before its launch at the end of January to spread the word about the new people mover.
The Quest is equipped with a number of features designed for mums and families including: a conversation mirror for front-seat passengers to keep an eye on those in the back rows, a half-step at the rear entry for passengers with little legs, flat folding seats, a storage area built into the floor, and an odour-neutralising air filter system.
The 2011 Nissan Quest will be sold in North America with a $US28,550 ($29,000) starting price.
