HANNOVER, Germany – IAA Hannover — TomTom (TOM2) today announced that its vehicle-integrated TomTom Bridge Hub platform has been chosen by Daimler Trucks to provide navigation and vehicle data to drivers, globally. Now Daimler Truck drivers using the new infotainment system will benefit from TomTom’s renowned connected navigation and traffic information, while being able to access critical vehicle data – all while using their favourite Android™ apps via the built-in vehicle display.
The TomTom Bridge Hub puts the power of the TomTom Bridge platform in a small and display-agnostic device that can be fully integrated into a vehicle.
TomTom Bridge is a flexible, open platform that integrates TomTom’s technology into commercial vehicle businesses, helping them to move more efficiently. It allows Android based business applications to connect seamlessly with TomTom services, providing mobility solutions on a single device.
Mike Schoofs, Managing Director, TomTom Consumer, said: “The TomTom Bridge Hub shows how deeply, but simply, we can integrate our technology into vehicle architecture – and how far it can be customized. Truck drivers can enjoy our incredible navigation and traffic information, keep a check on their vehicle data, and enjoy the Android apps that matter the most to them for life on the road.”
