Yarmouth, Maine – October 15, 2019 – Chimani, Inc., in partnership with Subaru of America, Inc., announced today the launch of a new Chimani national parks app on all SUBARU STARLINK multimedia systems with cloud-based capability. The new Chimani app works in conjunction with the customer’s smartphone and operates from the vehicle’s touchscreen multimedia system.
With the Chimani app, national park enthusiasts have all 419 U.S. national park locations and details at their fingertips. The app uses Chimani’s original content to act as a digital guide for finding and navigating to the nearest national park in real-time. The customer can save their favorite national parks and the data will automatically be synced to their Chimani account.
“We are eager to help Subaru customers discover the many national parks that surround them – not just the large iconic parks, but the numerous smaller parks which are rich in history and culture,” said Kerry Gallivan, CEO, and Founder of Chimani, Inc. “We are equally excited to partner with Subaru and have this be the first Chimani app natively available within the vehicles’ multimedia system.”
All 2019 SUBARU STARLINK multimedia systems feature an extensive catalog of STARLINK cloud-based apps; high-resolution touchscreen; smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto; Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; Rear Vision Camera; SiriusXM® All Access Radio (4-month free subscription) and SiriusXM Travel Link® (3-year free subscription); HD Radio® and over-the-air updates. The Chimani National Parks app has been automatically added to all Subaru vehicles with cloud-based app capability.
“The introduction of the Chimani app is equally exciting for Subaru. It brings together our extensive suite of Subaru STARLINK technology and the brand’s love for National Parks”, said Anthony Landamia, Infotainment Manager at Subaru of America. “We continue to work with only the best and most recognized partners and we believe the Chimani app will quickly become a favorite, and a keystone in our STARLINK app ecosystem.”
