Amsterdam, Frankfurt – 13 September 2011 – At the IAA Frankfurt Motorshow, TomTom today announces that it will provide navigation with real-time services for the Fiat Panda. This is the first time that the Blue&Me TomTom LIVE platform will be available on a Fiat A-segment car.
New Fiat Panda drivers will benefit from a great navigation experience through dash board integration, including unique dynamic routing - providing them with the fastest route to their destination based on the latest traffic situation. The Blue&Me TomTom LIVE connects seamlessly over Bluetooth Technology with your mobile phone and media player. The system software and content can be updated through the online portal MyTomTom. As the Blue&Me TomTom LIVE is fully-portable it can be used by drivers in other vehicles if needed.
"With users' demands increasing for integrated navigation solutions, I am happy that we are able to offer Fiat Panda drivers the option of experiencing an in-dash system including LIVE Service. A-segment car drivers can now enjoy the benefits of real time traffic and dynamic routing – reducing their journey times significantly as HD Traffic covers 99.9% of the road network, including inner cities. Being able to extend our integrated navigation to this segment very much fits with TomTom's commitment to reducing traffic congestion for all", said Giles Shrimpton, Managing Director TomTom Automotive. "Fiat Group Automobiles are an important partner for TomTom and I am pleased that we are able to constantly update the Blue&Me TomTom platform and to roll it out on more models".

The Blue&Me TomTom LIVE will initially be available in Italy, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Benelux and Portugal.
