TomTom announces today that it will make its traffic services available to the South Korean car OEMs (Kia & SsangYong) in Europe.
Through the partnership beginning in summer 2015 with the Kia cee’d and Kia Optima, Kia customers will benefit from the delivery of TomTom’s connected services at no additional cost for seven years after the purchase of a new Kia model.
Kia drivers will now benefit from TomTom’s services, including TomTom Traffic, Speed Cameras, Local search and Weather. TomTom’s services will help Kia drivers to save time on the road by identifying the fastest route for each journey using accurate traffic information. They will also receive alerts about fixed and mobile speed cameras, as well as location-centric information on local shops, services and businesses, and prevailing weather reports.
TomTom’s maps and navigation software will also be included in the all-new SsangYong Tivoli model throughout Europe beginning in May 2015.
Drivers across Europe will now benefit from TomTom’s superior turn-by-turn navigation, featuring advanced lane guidance to navigate even the most complex junctions. Drivers will also have the advantage of TomTom Routes, which provide the fastest route based on actual speed data, for every road, for every time of the day, for every day of the week.
