Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Fiat Group Automobiles and TomTom announced a jointly developed personal navigation device (PND), designed specifically for Fiat, to appear in the Fiat Punto Evo.
TomTom said the integrated portable device, called Blue&Me-TomTom, has "the tightest integration between a portable navigation device and a car the industry has ever seen," according to a press statement. The PND lets users manage telephone calls, navigation and driving information.
Blue&Me-TomTom will offer newer features, such as IQ Routes for the fastest route and accurate arrival times. And it will incorporate Fiat's Eco:Drive Info for real-time information on driving style and suggestions for reducing gas by changing gears and accelerating to suit the nature of the route.
Harold Goddijn, CEO of TomTom, said, "For the first time ever, a new car will offer the latest navigation innovations available."
Further details on the solution will be offered at the IAA Motorshow in Frankfurt, Germany, Sept. 17-27.
TomTom also offers a navigation solution for Renault.
