TomTom Powers MG India’s New Connected Car

NEW DELHI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Location technology specialists, TomTom (TOM2),
today announced that its full stack of navigation components have been
chosen by MG India to power the MG Connected Car, launching in May 2019.
MG India will also be the launch customer for TomTom’s ground-breaking
new service, TomTom
IQ Maps

The MG Connected Car will use TomTom’s award-winning navigation and
routing software, and live traffic services, as well as TomTom IQ Maps.

TomTom IQ Maps combines the reliability of in-car navigation with the
freshness of navigation apps by leveraging AI to automatically update
the parts of the map that are most relevant to the driver. This
personalized approach ensures that the map is always up-to-date, with no
interaction required by the driver – or the car maker. IQ Maps
automatically detects when relevant updates are available, downloading
and installing map changes in the background over the cellular
connection of the car, without disrupting the navigation experience. For
vehicles without a cellular connection, Wi-Fi at home enables the
download and, as a ‘plan c’, a smartphone will download the required
updates when in Wi-Fi, and transfer to the vehicle when in range.

Antoine Saucier, Managing Director, TomTom Automotive comments: “TomTom
IQ Maps are designed specifically for the embedded system – taking the
same up-to-date user experience drivers expect from navigation apps; and
bringing it to reliable, accurate in-car navigation. We’re thrilled that
MG India is our first launch customer, and it’s fantastic to see that
they are revealing their new vehicle’s connected technology platform
before they even unveil the vehicle itself. This underlines the
importance of a technology-first approach to the car of today.”

“We are proud to have TomTom as a strategic partner for enhancing the
overall tech experience for MG customers in India. With MG cars staying
constantly up-to-date, we are providing an unparalleled, seamless
connected mobility experience for our customers,” said Gaurav Gupta,
Chief Commercial Officer, MG India.
