Technology for all

COVID-19 reinforced the importance of staying connected with each other and the world, so when SeniorNet asked Suzuki NZ to present at their recent symposium, we were delighted.

SeniorNet is a network of Learning Centres around the country for people over the age of 50 who’d like to learn more about technology and what it can do for them.

The event, held in Dunedin earlier this year, included the organisation’s AGM and a number of key speakers. As a long-time supporter of SeniorNet, Suzuki wanted to show members how they can benefit from new vehicle technology and how Suzuki vehicles are designed to make life easier with user friendly interfaces. To do this we enlisted the help of local Suzuki dealer (and top NZ female rally driver) Emma Gilmour, seen above with Heather Newell, Executive Officer from SeniorNet.

Emma brought three new Suzuki vehicles to the venue and talked members and instructors through some of their new features. As well as covering the latest safety equipment such as the reverse camera, blind spot monitoring, and weave alert, she showcased the navigation, entertainment and information systems. Connecting your phone through Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, or Android Auto is one of the most asked questions, so it was fantastic to go through the process step-by-step.

With technology moving so fast, you don’t need to be over 50 to feel a bit left behind! To keep up with the latest Suzuki innovations, check out our website www.suzuki.co.nz and
