TomTom agrees BMW Group deal

Date: 05 October 2018   |   Author: Sean Keywood

TomTom has announced a deal to provide BMW Group vehicles with live traffic information, online routing and electric vehicle (EV) services. 

The deal, which includes BMW, Mini and Rolls Royce vehicles, has been agreed following a testing programme which began in April this year.

TomTom's traffic information provides drivers with live updates on upcoming jams and delays. While its online routing technology uses cloud-based processing power to send alternative routes to the navigation system embedded in the vehicle.

The EV service informs drivers of the distance their vehicle can travel before running out of charge, and plans the most efficient route to a charging point on their journey which is suitable for their vehicle and available at the right time. 

TomTom Automotive managing director Antoine Saucier said: "TomTom's vision is a safe, connected and autonomous world, free of congestion and emissions. 

"The introduction of TomTom live traffic, online routing and EV services into BMW vehicles is a huge step forwards to achieve this goal."
