REQUEST FILED AGAINST PIONEER NAVIGATION PATENT

Scott Daniels | April 21, 2010

On Monday Garmin requested inter partes reexamination of Pioneer’s U.S. Patent No. 6,941,222 entitled NAVIGATION SYSTEM, SERVER SYSTEM FOR A NAVIGATION SYSTEM, AND COMPUTER-READABLE INFORMATION RECORDED MEDIUM IN WHICH DESTINATION PREDICTION PROGRAM IS RECORDED.  A significant feature of the claimed invention appears to be that destination prediction is based in part on “information on a date and time when the mobile body is moving as a condition for the prediction.”

Garmin asserts that independent claims 1 and 17 are anticipated by or obvious over each of three references.  Garmin also attacks certain dependent claims, but does not attack server system claims 9-16.

This past December Pioneer sued Garmin and Honeywell in the U.S. ITC for infringement of three other navigation patents.  That investigation is now in the discovery stage.
