Amsterdam, 3 March 2015 – TomTom (TOM2) announces today its collaboration with Hyundai Motor in Europe. Hyundai drivers will benefit from TomTom’s state-of-the-art connected services for seven years, starting with the launch of the All-New Tucson SUV in the second half of 2015.
Hyundai drivers will have access to TomTom’s services in their on-board navigation system, including TomTom Traffic, Speed Cameras, Local Search and Weather. The integration of the suite of TomTom’s services will help Hyundai drivers to save time on the road by providing real-time traffic information. Drivers will also receive alerts about fixed and mobile speed cameras, as well as location-specific information on local shops, services and businesses and prevailing weather reports.
“At Hyundai we aim to deliver value beyond expectations to our customers,” commented Jochen Sengpiehl, Vice President Marketing at Hyundai Motor Europe. “This year, we will change the perception of our brand with the All-New Tucson. For this new model, TomTom’s ‘LIVE Services’ are the perfect choice to enhance the user experience with real-time information.”
