The article isn't clear about whether it's just navigation or the entire system.

"Alibaba will get the opportunity to put its Autonavi mapping services into the Japanese carmakerís future vehicles, with customers also being able to make online payments via the Chinese tat bazaarís Alipay platform."

Although what we are supposed to want to pay for is left unanswered.
