GNS and Arrow Asia sign distribution agreement

(PresseBox) (Würselen, ) Global Navigation Systems - GNS GmbH is to collaborate with Arrow Asia, a company of the Arrow Group, starting in March, 2010. This extends and reinforces the international sales channels operated by GNS GmbH. This partnership is to focus on the distribution and marketing of the new TC6000 range of combo modules.

Global Navigation Systems - GNS GmbH, the leading supplier of GPS and TMC technology, and the distributor Arrow Asia will be sharing a common path from now on. Arrow Asia will provide sales and marketing activities to assist with the intensification of GNS's market position in Asia. Beginning from now, Arrow Asia will be supplying the Asian-Pacific market with products from GNS.

"Arrow Asia is a global specialist in distribution who will help us to establish our sales network in the APAC region," explains Bernd Bierwisch, CEO and cofounder of GNS. "We are looking forward to this new partnership and sharing success." Gary Oh, Regional Director Business Development & Marketing Operation of Arrow Asia says: "We are very happy to be extending our product range with the new and innovative products from GNS. We are certain that GNS products, and the TC6000 combo module in particular, will be of great interest to our customers."

At the core of the agreement is the new TC6000 range of combo modules. These integrate four wireless functions into a single module: Global Positioning System (GPS), Bluetooth (BT) and Traffic Message Channel receiver (TMC) or an FM transmitter. These features allow the new module to offer an almost endless range of possible applications. Dimensioned at just 10mm x 9.2mm x 2.3mm, the module is very easy to integrate. It also offers a significant cost advantage over existing hardware solutions. The TC6000 combo module is a compact allinone solution for manufacturers of all sorts of mobile applications, especially in the area of PNDs and mobile phones. The first samples of the TC6000 combo module and the development kit are available now.
