In 2013, Wheels24 reported on General Motors South Africa launching its Isuzu Trailview, an interactive tool which enables off-road enthusiasts to preview trails online.

Several off-road trails in SA have been mapped with the aid of an Isuzu KB 300 Extended Cab 4x4, equipped with a 360° camera.

In 2014, the automaker has expanded the functionality of its Trailview to cover mountain bike trails (each includes a review) and include camping reviews, braai recipes and gadgets. Users can embed trail videos on their own websites.


Isuzu brand manager, Mlungisi Nonkonyana, said: "Isuzu owners love to take their vehicles away on weekends, to drive on off-road trails or visit family in far-flung areas. Trailview is just one way of adding extra value to what Isuzu vehicles already offer.

“In addition, the enhancements we've made allow Trailview to better align with lifestyle activities such as mountain biking and trail running - events which are sponsored by Isuzu."

Apart from, what it claims, a “faster, smoother video-based encounter”, users have access to a 360° button to view the surroundings, route elevation, aerial view and can skip to any point of interest on the map.
