Navigation is the leading example of one-way telematics.
Onboard turn-by-turn navigation uses signals from GPS satellites to fix the car’s location.
If you’re in the car and get operator or voice-response help to find a destination and download it, that would be a two-way process.

How does a telematics device work?
A SIM card and modem in the device enables communication on the cellular network. The data derived from the telematics device like the vehicle’s GPS position, the G-Force measured by the built-in accelerometer, and the speed that the vehicle is moving at is sent in an encrypted packaged format to the data centre.
What can telematics be used for?
Telematics does this through more direct route planning, reducing job site bottlenecks and cutting engine idling, while also detecting unauthorised vehicle or equipment use (enabling firms to cut down on resulting fuel usage). More cost-effective maintenance.
What is the difference between infotainment and telematics?
The primary differences between this system and the infotainment system are that a vehicle telematics system has two-way communication that sends, receives and stores information, but generally does not include entertainment features.
