From this interior photo, it looks like Aston Martin has improved its cabin tech interface. Instead of separate displays for radio and navigation, it looks like the interface is integrated into a flip-up LCD. Aston Martin says it uses Garmin navigation software, and the Vanquish also gets a 1,000 watt 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.
