CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich., Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru has unveiled Quick Guide, a Tweddle Group product which lets drivers access electronic User Guide information through the touchscreen head unit. Quick Guide will launch in every North American Subaru equipped with SUBARU STARLINK™.
Tweddle Group is a longtime pioneer in technical Owner's Information.
"Quick Guide is a landmark for two reasons," said Tweddle Group President and CEO Paul Wilbur. "The first is access. The feature's placement in the head unit delivers Owner's Information to drivers where and when they need it most—behind the wheel. The second reason is usability. Quick Guide works the way we think, in a simple, intuitive way, so it seems to serve up information before we even know we need it."
Drivers will find Quick Guide in seven Subaru models for 2017: Outback, Forester, Legacy, Crosstrek, Impreza, WRX/STI and BRZ. Quick Guide repurposes three essential Subaru Owner's Information publications:
- Quick Reference Guide
- SUBARU STARLINK™ User Guide
- EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology User Guide
"We're pleased to add Quick Guide to Subaru's STARLINK app suite," said Subaru of America Infotainment Product Manager Anthony Landamia. "Quick Guide delivers great practical utility in a seamless and intuitive way. We believe Subaru drivers will love having instant access to vehicle information right through the vehicle's infotainment system. Quick Guide can also play a part in Subaru's green initiatives as we move to go paperless in the future."
Tweddle Group hosts and deploys Quick Guide as a cloud-based web client. The content bundle works off brand/year/model/market/language/publication specifications and integrates with the touchscreen system for a familiar, vehicle-branded experience. The cloud-based infrastructure delivers automatic, behind-the-scenes updates to both the feature and its content.
Quick Guide supports all of Subaru's Tier 1 head unit providers.
Tweddle Group has a long history of innovation. The company continues to reinvent itself with great agility as the information space evolves. Quick Guide reinforces Tweddle Group's standing as the premier partner in Owner's Information services.
