TomTom’s Cloud-Native In-Dash Navigation has Arrived
TomTom (TOM2), the leading independent location technology
specialist, today announced the arrival of TomTom Navigation for
Automotive, a cloud-native hybrid navigation solution developed for
the automotive industry.
TomTom’s navigation is used by more automakers
than any other. The latest iteration is cloud-native and able to
take advantage of super-fast and up-to-date routing, search and
fresh maps, while still offering a fully functional offline mode.
When no data connection is available, the solution switches to its
onboard software and maps, making it available under all
“With cloud delivery at the heart of the new
TomTom Navigation for Automotive, we have combined the safety and
comfort of an in-dash system with the always up-to-date and
super-fast experience of a smartphone app,” said Antoine Saucier,
Managing Director, TomTom Automotive.
Drivers will enjoy a new user interface designed
around our principles of safety and ease-of-use. The intuitive
interface can be displayed on the center stack, cluster screen,
head-up display (HUD) and passenger screens in different sizes and
aspect ratios. This integrated approach means important information
such as turn-by-turn and lane-level navigation instructions, as
well as traffic and hazard warnings can be projected on the
vehicle’s HUD or cluster screen, increasing driver safety and
comfort. The driver can also interact directly with TomTom’s
navigation via easy-to-use voice assistance from Amazon Alexa,
Cerence or Houndify.
TomTom’s next-generation navigation can be
integrated with vehicle sensors, enabling it to display vital
information linked to advanced driver assistance systems and
refueling or recharging needs. Dynamic range mapping helps drivers
to visualize their vehicle’s range – especially important for
electric vehicles. If the predicted range is insufficient to make
it to the selected destination, the driver is alerted to find a
charging location and provided with a cost comparison of the
available charging points that are on route and within range. The
chosen charging point is then added as waypoint to the driver’s

for safer roads, easier driving and cleaner air. TomTom’s new
full-stack in-dash navigation is ready today to harness the
capabilities of the automated and electric vehicles of
