Volvo Cars has selected TomTom as the provider of location and navigation content and services for its new infotainment platform.
From 2019, Volvo customers across the globe, across all carlines on the SPA and CMA platforms, will be served by TomTom’s complete suite of components, both embedded and cloud-based. Among the key features and services of the TomTom solution are automotive-grade digital NDS Maps which deliver incremental real-time map updates, TomTom’s navigation software NavKit and TomTom Traffic and travel-related services.
This agreement marks the first-time collaboration between TomTom and Volvo Cars.
Antoine Saucier, managing director TomTom Automotive, said, ‘We are extremely pleased to announce this collaboration between TomTom and Volvo Cars, one of the most respected car brands in the world. Thanks to the trust that Volvo Cars has put into TomTom’s products, we are uniquely positioned in the automotive industry to offer Volvo Cars future-proof systems that meet the rapidly changing market requirements.’
