TomTom and Jeep have announced a partnership today for Jeep’s newest vehicle line, the Jeep Renegade. The Renegade line will all be outfitted with TomTom’s UConnect 5″ Radio Nav infotainment system integrated into the dashboard.
The TomTom UConnect 5″ Radio Nav offers turn-by-turn navigation, traffic information to avoid jams and work areas, and POI searches. Other features include a Help Me! emergency menu, advanced lane guidance that show realistic intersections, safety warnings when approaching schools, fuel-efficient routes, speeding alerts and more. I didn’t see any information whether or not lifetime maps comes with the purchase of a vehicle.
“An integrated infotainment system with navigation is increasingly one of the most requested features when drivers are selecting a new car. By incorporating TomTom’s navigation technology in the Uconnect™ 5” Radio Nav, Jeep ensures Renegade drivers have an innovative navigation solution with high quality automotive grade global maps,” said Jan Maarten de Vries, VP Automotive at TomTom.
