A short history of Alpine Electronics.
Since 1967 Alpine Electronics has been one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of high performance mobile multi-media products. Alpine is the worlds leading developer of in-vehicle navigation systems. The key word here is developer. Rather than purchase someone elses off-the-shelf technology, Alpine has been creating their own Navigation Software and hardware for over 12 years.
While various other manufacturers are just now entering the market, Alpine is delivering the fourth generation of mapping operational software.
