TomTom, the dutch-based navigation company, has announced a new partnership with Fiat on their newest automobile, the Fiat 500X. The new Fiat, which is expected to ship in Europe in 2015, will feature TomTom’s Uconnect infotainment system, which will include TomTom Traffic, TomTom Speed Cameras, TomTom Weather and TomTom Places.
“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Fiat,” said Jan-Maarten de Vries, VP Automotive, TomTom. “By adding TomTom’s LIVE services and software including accurate traffic information, the latest road closure information and better routes, Fiat empowers drivers with more advanced knowledge of the road ahead, to help make journeys faster.”
The new Fiat 500X Uconnect Radio Nav system will be equipped with TomTom’s full line of connected navigation technology on every journey. Drivers will benefit from faster routes based on TomTom’s superior routing engine, which uses both weather and traffic information to map the fastest route, and highly accurate traffic service, which receives over 100 million kilometers of real-time traffic measurements every day.
